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.
Snow falling, a silent and peaceful world, first Sunday of Lent. Email says church is cancelled. That never happens except with hurricanes, so I think it means they can't get the parking area plowed and de-iced.
Lovely picture Bird Dog - and, having grown up in the Midwest, I agree with your sentiment - we certainly adapted to the weather. In our world, those billboards advertising flights to Florida were for other people (smile).
I think I'd seen that before but and it was fun watching it again! That is a beautiful piece of furniture and an amazing piece of engineering! I don't know how one remembers all the buttons and what they do!
Recently you published a picture of your office and mentioned about Yankeeland culture. I am a Canadian and really enjoy your blog. I also admire Classic Liberal ideals often reflected in New England culture. Where would you say would be a good place to visit that would best demonstrate this. A place in New England with "Yankkeeland culture, history, architecture and hopefully good food? I think it would be fun to visit. If George Washington slept there may I could too.
