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.
Good Ol'LeftyNorm bashes the terror apologists, here.
Martini-Henry Rifles: you can buy one here. Either long- or short-lever. When facing the Mahdi army in the Sudan, you would have wanted the long lever. We know a little bit about firearms, on Maggie's. Not much - just enough to hunt, and to handle any little problems that might come up. It is Bird Dog's rule: Firearms in the house, or you cannot write for Maggie's. Sorta basic, I guess. Ahhh, the scent of cordite in the mornin'.
Online Hymnals, with midi-file music: there are two I use, here and here. I hate the sound of that computer music, but they are good for tracking down hymns.
Doyle Brunson brings his skills from Vegas to Wall Street, and there's a problem: The 700 million dollar bluff. Darn. Wall Street isn't what it used to be in the good old days.

Healthy mitochondria, and aging. Take good care of your little mitochondria. They depend on you - they are your responsibility, and your tiny friends, like pets, living inside of you.
The Rove silliness: Rove got Plame's name from Novak. And she was not an undercover agent, just a regular CIA employee. This non-story will slowly go away, and such as Daniel Schorr's trademark PMS hysterical rants will speed that process along. My Way News.Poor Dan needs estrogen replacement therapy - or maybe testosterone replacement therapy...not sure which. (Sorry, Editor - I did promise never to get personal, but come on!This pompous bozo weenie schmuck deserves it. Woops - I did it again. Please forgive me.)
