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.
While living in Japan, I bought a nice Nikon digital camera for four hundred dollars. And then a Japanese friend took me on a day trip. We went to an area that was a mixture of swamp, and wild flowers. They had built several miles of wooden piers, for people to walk around. It was really interesting, but I dropped my brand new camera and broke it. Bummer. So I took it back to the camera store, and they said it would cost two hundred to repair. So I had it fixed. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of that place. Anyway, here is a swamp image, that's the least I can do. http://www.followingthenerd.com/tv/watch-new-swamp-thing-teaser-takes-the-horror-all-the-way-to-11/
