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.
Via one of my daughters who is in love in New York City. Actually, both of my daughters are in love and in New York City. That's pretty cool. I'm afraid that one is headed for LA, though.
I've been in love in New York City too. Long ago. No money, no nothing. It was great. Great moment: sledding in a blizzard late night in Riverside Park on cardboard boxes. Many other fun things like that.
