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.
Check out the stuff we posted over the weekend. Some fun stuff, I think.
Did a bit of driving around this weekend. Took some lousy photos. We did drive past a doctor's office in Norfolk, CT: Dr. Ralph Emerson. We all agreed we'd be glad to go to him. (In some areas the leaves were wonderful, and in some spots not so good, but we were not looking for leaves.) This is Canaan, CT:
The Housatonic Valley, Route 7 in Western MA:
More random road photos below the fold:
The East Canaan, CT Congregational Church
Winsted, CT - one more sad old New England mill town:
So okay, you weren't looking for leaves. I spent two winters in Northern Maine at the (now closed) Loring AFB, 90 miles north of the end of I-95. The wonderful autumn colors were almost the only consolation we had for the -40F temps with 30mph winds and the 240 inches of snow.
