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 visiting England about 25 years ago and conducting six teenagers along with me. They were my children plus a couple of cousins. On our last day, we were driving to Heathrow to drop off the car (van) and happened upon a sign indicating Stoke Poges a mile or so to the left. I turned and the kids got a tour of the church and country churchyard. I wish I could say they all appreciated it but at least they saw it.
