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.
As in "Stockbridge, Mass?" I first visited the area many years ago (10 -oh- 69) and fell in love with it. A buddy & I searched out "Alice's Restaurant" (actually "The Village Restaurant") because, as you so well know, that's not the name of the restaurant, just the name of the song!!
