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.
Your devoted editor will be too busy today to review any entries, so we won't have much new. But I have a stash for such days, if I can find it.
An email from a reader and fellow blogger: "We read you daily, as our daily dose of grounding sanity." Aw, shucks! Ain't that nice? That is our goal, here at Maggie's Farm - solid ground. Dirt, rocks, and stubborn roots - good old terra firma: nothing fancy, and we try to be devilish to BS, in the sceptical, plain, unadorned, rock-ribbed, cantankerous Yankee manner, mixed with a dose of joy in God's creation (along with the recognition that He never meant to make it easy for us).
