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 live and work in the construction industry in a southern college town. As a result of decades of anti sprawl "green" zoning and easy government subsidized loan money our quaint little downtown is being overwhelmed by student high rise apartments.
Private bedrooms and baths, private gyms, private parking garages, roof top pools, rent from $1k to $1.5k per bedroom in 4 bedroom apartments.
