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.

I have a Marine VHF radio on my boat as well as a handheld in my boat bag. Even though all my boating these days is relegated to a large lake - 72 sq miles - I always have a Marine VHF radio at hand. It has come in handy a number of times over the past 25+ years I have been boating on the lake. Our family's boats on Long Island Sound also have Marine VHF radios. They are cheap insurance.
