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.
I was pleased to see it pouring cats and dogs Saturday morning when I got up. Glad that it resulted in an early dusting in the Sierra.
Local weather watchers here in the Bay Area are talking super stormy-wet for our winter this year. I hope so. I'm bored. The fog season has lasted longer than usual and although our summery weather has now finally arrived (temps in the 70s) I could use some excitement.
