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 had the great good fortune to be staying at the first establishment in Ireland to introduce automatic flushing systems--many years ago. It was a very nice hotel;popular with the first generation of up/coming educated types. My Gods you should have heard the comments, as each gentleman returned to the bar after having had his first experience with such a thing! The literature was BRILLIANT. The laughter went on for days! I think it is what is commonly called a convergence of events!
Back in the 70's there was a bar in the financial district of San Fransisco called Ripples. It wasn't my buddies and my favorite hangout but they always had the best hot Hors d'œuvre....they also had to my unknowing surprise unisex bathrooms...til I looked over and saw a guy and girl holding glands....SFO what can ya say?
