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.
How wonderful it would be if I could once again sit in a church filled with folks who truly believed in the Christian way. My own church (Episcopal/Anglican) is gone now--finished. There is a website out there that provides daily prayer from the old prayer book, and songs from the old hymnal--but sitting in a bedroom corner watching the computer screen is not nearly the same.
