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.
Haha! Yup, the amphibian chorus is coming from the adjoining woods. I love 'em. They don't eat my raspberries, holly, and everything else I plant like the deer and rabbits, they don't bite me and transmit deadly diseases like the ticks and mosquitoes, they don't eat all my grapes and berries like the stupid birds that hang out here--they just sing to me. What great friends!
