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.
Love it! Piano, books and comfortable chairs and rugs. Knowing what you have written in the past, I know the place was filled with happy, laughing, loving people and joyful dogs. What a lucky man you are.
I noticed this room from last year wherby your Christmas Tree is in the centre of the room away from the walls.
I thought that this might be a fire prevention issue, but it does look good away from the walls.
