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.
Hold your right arm out in front of you and separate your thumb and forefinger approximately an inch apart. Note the separation. That represents the "window" of opportunity my wife and I and another 25,000 people had to see the the shuttle fly before it was totally obscured. We were 4 miles away which is as close as you can get.

Hey, ya gotta take risks right? I mean am I right?
