We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
There is a restaurant on the Brooklyn side of the bridge that is very good if a little pricey called River View, almost under the bridge. Their steaks are very good. Atleast it was there in 2002. Huh, hadn't quite realized how long it's been since I was in NYC.
I do miss that city -- hey, I thought of you Farmers today. We moved from Istanbul to northern New Zealand a couple months ago, and today I found my first bottle of genuine Ocean Spray cranberry juice. Wonderful stuff, nice to have it again.
