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.
I lived on a houseboat for three years. Except for having to give up lots of junk, it was a great life. Only reason I left the boat was to buy a house for my best and last wife - and even then we looked at a couple nice trawlers as alternate choices. Liveaboard years are great years, but not when you get real old . . . .
