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.
Thanks for sharing. Music like this, and most "classic" artistic endeavors are what separate us from animals. My knowledge of classical music is limited. I recognize particular pieces, but rarely know who wrote what I'm hearing or the name of the piece. Beethoven's 5th (likely because of Electric Light Orchestra) is the major exception.
