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.
Quite a fun little snowfall this morning. During the morning walk it was forty degrees, and not particularly overcast, so at first I didn't realize what the little white things in the air were. It took a few moments to convince myself they were little snowflakes. A little later they grew large and were coming down heavy. Didn't last long but the grass was whitened for a short while.
