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.

For example, below, female Tennessee Warbler, via CLO:
Thanks for this information! I am one of the nutty folks watching the barn owl family in southern California on streaming video. Many in our crowd of crackpots are also interested in birds generally, and this is a great site!
