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.
Sounds like it's worth a trip to Holland The Netherlands, where the Dutch people live and speak Dutch, which is close to English. Also where the Frisians live, who do speak a sort of English. (See The Difference between Holland & the Netherlands)
Re: language, of us dozen or so grandchildren growing up in Dutch American households, not one of us knows any Dutch. It's still the most incomprehensible of any language I know of, what with all that guttural stuff and the German-like delivery.
I get more out of French and Spanish than I could ever hope to out of Dutch. Too bad because I'd like to visit one day.
