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.
Parrish (1870-1966) was an enormously popular New Hampshire illustrator/artist whose prints and posters are readily available. For me, they are highly sentimental and corny in a charming way. He frequently decorated his landscapes with lovely nymphettes. This is River in Ascutney. That is Mount Ascutney in the background, and the CT River.
Dear BD: I have been sensing that the losses of last year are weighing heavy. I think we all know that you must sometimes get very frustrated with MF and the time and effort it requires of you. We also know that the support Mrs. BD gives to you is surely essential. Having said that let me say I apologize if my posts have caused too much effort.
As you know by now, I was among the first in the academic community to speak out about the people and values that we are all now having to confront in all aspects of our daily lives--most particularly in the White House, government agencies, and sadly now--this great absence of agreed upon values dominates even our military today.
When I first reported insurance fraud to our state insurance commissioner, I had no way of knowing she was lifelong best friends with the Pres. of AAUP. Both of whom helped to organize the 1968 Democratic Student Riots.No way of knowing that the women's network had gone beyond a special interest group into a network of out of control terrorists. And, most importantly for Mr. Kessler, I had no way of knowing that American lawyers do not confront any Jewish owned interests--no matter how corrupt. . .
The pain of being stalked, having my husband blacklisted, my home torn through, etc. all by women of a particular group for whom we refused to work any longer--that pain has been made manageable by the presence of MF. THANK YOU!
BD: You might like to visit some of the western(MT, UT, WY) galleries of fine art. Here is one that you might enjoy in particular Kimbal Warren. You can click on any of the artists and see an example of their work. You might like Kimbal Warren in particular.
