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 find live oak landscapes to be absolutely magical. Add Spanish moss and it's just that much better. One of my favorite places on earth is a sea island off Savannah. I'll probably never be able to visit again as the lady who lived there has given the island to the state and only lives there under a life estate.
Live oaks. You're luck Texan99,
