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.
Right now, in southern New England. Dang point-and-shoot camera is too slow to catch the beauty of the flakes falling heavily this morning. The first good snowfall is always magical. If you don't have 4WD this morning, you'll have a bad day. Looks like about 8". If Danny doesn't show up to plow the driveway and the front of the barn in about ten minutes, I'll do it myself with the tractor, if I can get it started. I kind of hate to head off to Hartford without cleaning things up first. For the little wifie, you know? She has horses to care for. Not that a little snow slows her down.
