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.
On a CGN, the accommodations aren't nearly as nice. It is a pity can't post pictures of my med cruises, including ports of call at Athens, Tunis, Naples, Naples, Naples, Naples and Beirut. Well, we didn't stop at Beirut; we just kind of hung around and shelled it.
