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.

Global temperature is highly variable, but the thirteen warmest years on record have all occurred between 1997 and 2011. Even though 2011 was a La Niña year, which bring generally cooler temperatures, it is still among the warmest years on record.
Love the photo of the snowy ski place! Is there somewhere like that near The Farm this season?
Just returned from Summit County out in CO for the annual week of trying to break bones. I failed to break any of my own but a yuteful snowboarder managed to put a big hurt onto my ribs by not watching WTF he was doing - bastid ran me down from behind. OUCH!
Snow wasn't great by their standards but sufficient for our needs. Even there half the terrain is still closed.
