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 summer skiing. I used to, along with a couple other ski bum friends, try to get on skis at least once a month for every month of the year. Not too hard to do if you live in Oregon or Washington. Not so sure about the "stick" method pictured above. Used to see some of the old hippy telemarkers doing that in Oregon. Always seemed a bit silly...
