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.
As the Mrs and I live in the Philippines, the staff has a plot of ground they tend with near magical hands delivering fresh pineapple, banana, papaya, peanuts, onions . tomatoes and of course our beautiful mango tree. I grill pine apple wedges with a good dose of sea salt which really opens up the sweetness . Seems counter intuitive i know , side dish with what ever super local delight they are whipping up, usually fried whole fish head and all along with rice favored with cumin.
God Bless, Take care,
