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.
A brand-new Congregational Church in Connecticut, approaching completion, on yesterday's misty, foggy morning.
When have you last seen a new Congregational Church being built?
This congregation is not a member of the UCC, by the way, but a true independent congregation of the original Mayflower variety.
The story is that the original building burned down in 1920, and the congregation has been in "temporary" quarters since then. Not having had fire insurance, it's taken them a while to re-build - and the costs have gone up a little over the past 85 years.
