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.
Cinnimon Stillwell should be a valuable addition. The first posting of her here was very good, the current one in the same league.
Excellent choice. Hosannas and huzzahs !!
And folks it should be acknowledged that this woman is writing from way behind enemy lines out in San Fransisco..a brave lassy.
Having said that I would recommend visiting San Fransisco if you have never been there. It's a neat town simply inhabited by too many of the wrong people.
If you go I would recommend a few things perhaps not on the tourist guides.
Sunday morning Irish coffee at the Buena Vista which is at the northern terminus of the trolleys
Then proceed across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito to the Alta Mira Hotel for brunch on their patio. The view back toward "The City" as the SF local call San Fransisco is reallly nifty...I usually got the eggs benedict with a Mimosa.
