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.
Always have felt the Cape is overrated. Having lived throughout the country have always discovered better places elsewhere. We live in MA now and actually never visit the Cape. It is for rich folks and their money.
I have been going to the Cape more than fifty years, and have seen a lot of changes. It's much fancier than it used to be, especially all the shoreside homes, and much more developed. And it is much more expensive, much harder for middle class and lower to get by. Still, there are nice pockets remaining and a certain funky appeal, Welfleet among them, and parts of 6A. The side facing the Sound and the whole route 28 corridor is an unpleasant mess, though, not worth all the aggravation and travel time.
BD, i want to congratulate your inner ear. Tilt is down to no more than 5 or 10 degrees. If that were dead level, the water would be pouring downhill to the left at no more than 20 to 40 mph. From earlier in your struggle with tilt, this is certainly a marked decrease in hydro velocity and i think we can say that the bubble on the level has finally peeked, if not quite yet hove, into view!
