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.
Elegant birds. The large Royal Tern is the size of a small gull. They live on our East Coast ocean beaches, and nest on dry sand bars. Like all of our terns, they are highly migratory, and make their living diving for small fish. You can read about Royal Tern here. Amateurs like me can easily confuse them with the Caspian Tern in the field (that is, on the beach).
