choose randomly

Medic
Bert, I am very grateful for your clear explanation!!!

  If n = N, then this is unnecessarily complicated.
  sample(mydata$Temperature)
  is all you need (see ?sample).
  If n < N, then the "trick" is not done.
  sample(mydata$Temperature, n)
  is what is wanted.

Thank you, Jim, you always come to the rescue!

  mydata$Temperature[sample(1:N,N)
  should do the trick. You will just get a pseudo-randomly shuffled set
  of the same values.
