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.
Someone should make a movie about Nellie Cashman, her wikipedia entry is amazing! She lived through the time of the Civil War, the Gold Rush, the Wild West, second gold rush and lived to see the light bult, movie pictures, airplanes, First World War. Seems a dozen actresses would want to play her.
