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.
The Victory Garden Cookbook had a great recipe for ham stuffed with collard greens. Ham and collards is a flavor combination that is made in heaven, like tomatoes and cheese, turkey and cranberries, corn and chilies, and peanut butter with just about anything. Corn bread w ham and collards does fine also.
