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.
This is a routine post we make. There's an eensy little bug in the system.
In case you see this pesky thing pop up when you hit the 'Submit' button in the comments:
Just ignore it and hit the Submit button again. If it pops up again, hit the dang button again. The comments are stored on a regular server but the email addresses and such are on a secure server, and occasionally they get slightly out of sync at the exact moment you hit the button.
It's all just a part of the wonderment and awe of living in the Digital Age.
I remember back when they laughed at my work, too, Doc. I still say, the combo washing machine/vacuum cleaner would have created a revolutionary linkup of the appliance and excersize equipment industries. Marketing from the time-saving perspective ("Weighs a Ton 2do 3Jobs n1!" and such as that) would've neutralized the water tankage weight issue that apparently mesmerized the venture capital people. And as far as the H2O in and out hoses complaint, it would just be like the extension cord that we're all used to already, only a little heavier and a few more of them. But that sells as Jack Dempsey's side-to-side rope-skipping work out --just work in a a few household names such as Jess Willard and Luis Angel "the Wild Bull of the Pampas" Firpo that Dempsey beat up, and allude that "They did NOT use the Jack Dempsey Side-to-Side Rope-Skipping work out, so you may Draw Your Own Conclusions!" concerning the streamlined chrome accented water and electricity line manifold segmented caboose skid-mounted sleigh accessory.
Alas, no takers --the fools. The pedestrian, Philistine, small-minded fools --i get steamed every time i think about it. They didn't understand, I coulda been somebody, I coulda been a contender. Instead of a bum, which is what I am.
