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.
As you know we lost a good'n when we lost Levon. The Band (all Canucks) backed Ronnie Hawkins (from Arkansas) as "The Hawks" 1960-64, in Toronto. They left Hawkins and toured as Levon and the Hawks and the Canadian Squires. They hooked up with Dylan and toured in 1965 & 66. They moved to NY State and eventually, in 1968, became "The Band". (thanx Wiki). They were one of the best if not the best IMO.
They really are in a class by themselves --as i was sayin' nearby, Canada's got something going on with the performing arts --it's gotta be the long winters inside practicing --the jeanetic code is too simyilar for anything else --
