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.
And thanks to Uniworld for the check for $400,000 plus five free trip vouchers (for six people) for posting this ad. Owning a website can be fun and profitable! Especially when you refuse to share the considerable income with the other contributors! That is evil oppressive Capitalism for ya.
I have friends who, with several other couples, jointly bought an elderly, elegant canal boat in Holland.They divided up the good weather part of the year, so that each couple had 2 weeks with the boat. They did that for years, exploring the canals of Europe, lliving and eating on the boat. When they got tired of it, they either sold their part to another couple, or when all had had enough exploring, they sold the boat.
Sounded like a great idea to me.
