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.
Don't buy one. They're very pretty, but solid colors have the advantage when it comes to cleaning them. (Mom got one of those sand and seashell ones as a gift; she says it never looks clean to her. I thought it was just because her sight's not that great, but when I cleaned her toilet, I realised those sand bits can look like something far less appealing on first glance.)
