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.
Whenever I see or hear the word wisteria I am immediately catapulted back (a la Shelly Berman's game of Nostalgics) to The Hudson's Bay Company store in Winnipeg Manitoba circa 1970 and my great enjoyment watching the "Afternoon Tea Train To Wisteria Halt." It was a marvelous contraption conceived and built by Rowland Emett who built the machines for the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The "Train" is, I believe at the Ontario Science centre in Toronto.
