Greetings and the salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the once again sunny, humid, breezy, beautiful island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours once again on this 28th day of July, 2015. A Tuesday–high noon–and as you ponder the image above, one may correctly infer there will be no shortage of clam chowder on the little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age. “Chowda” ( the Cape accent, along with the Boston accent, forgoing the use of the letter ‘r’…), was not readily available back then, indeed, a few years back this harbor was a frozen tundra, an age where the entire region was nothing more than a ‘permanent’ blanket of snow and ice…
How ‘times’ have changed, eh? Many of those who live in the United States of America are unfortunately under the spell of Rupert, ‘arrrgghh matey!’, Murdoch’s FOX ‘news’. Indeed, brainwashed daily as to the shaping of their lives–via the shameful puppet politicians towing the line for their plutocratic overlords–to the poisonous products they consume day in and day out, along with every member of their family…, (more on tomorrow’s ‘blog’ here at Sea Cape Cod! Don’t miss it, as it will be narrated by Sean Penn, well, not really, as he is busy this week, but there will be some interesting points concerning our “friends” at the American Chemical Council; stay tuned!), both equally dangerous and possibly both lethal.
But, on a day like today, who cares? So come on down and pay us a visit! Take a refreshing swim or dip into the 74 degree Nantucket Sound! Take a bike ride, ride a horse, or simply take a nap under big billowy clouds above, reading a good novel and unplugging one’s bloody ’smart’ phone for a half a second or so, hopefully enjoying said nap in one of Paul Ryan’s (R–WI), famous “hammocks” that the poor around this grand nation are forbidden from using, as they get enough of that kind of special treatment in the form of all those ‘generous’ food stamps and other goodies the government provides ($240 per month to feed a family of three, and only if they make just under the poverty line wage of $7.25 an hour!); luxury in them hammocks they be lyin’ around on. But, if you could spare just a little, they would certainly appreciate the gesture, kind, kind sir… For if you were to spend just one day in their shoes, felt their pain, anxiety and stress level, you would come to comprehend that they need a vacation much, much more than you do sir!
“A vacation from my problems, you bet I will!”
