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.
Ya know, between the birdwatching (several types), expert lawn care, culinary adventures, swamp-gazing, the wine, the music, the fishing and hunting, and now space telescopes, I don't have time anymore for screwing off, even when I'm in an official window for such. What's next? Thanks a lot! (Really)
