What Do Cape Cod Wind Turbines Have To Do With Historic Preservation?

In his role as Chair of the Old King's Highway Regional Historic Commission, Peter has often been used as a source for many articles related to wind turbines on Cape Cod because two controversial proposals have come before his commission over the past 6 months.  Here is the most recent article on the subject in today's  Cape Cod Times.

In this video, Peter addresses the issue of wind turbines on Cape Cod and why historic committes care about them.

    The Serenity Prayer and Selling Your House!

    Serenity Prayer

    When we make a  listing presentation to a prospective seller, one of the issues we always discuss is "Factors Relevant to Determining the Value of Your Property"" in which we deal with the facts of the current market and the things over which we and the Seller have no control.    Which really means that you have to ACCEPT certain facets of the current real estate market if you are going to list your home for sale.  I was reminded of this  when I came across  this article that speaks to the same matter  -  takes the simplicity of the well-known Serenity Prayer and applies it to the process of selling your home!  Acceptance, courage and wisdom - a great strategy in these times.  Remember, thousands of homes sold yesterday and thousands more will sell today. The right approach and attitude  will help make yours one of them!

              Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox

              Image via Wikipedia

              The Cape Cod Summer Baseball League is considered to be the  premier collegiate baseball league in the country. How lucky and proud is Dennis to have the Y-D Red Sox , 2010 Eastern Division champs as our home town team!

              Image via Wikipedia

              You can read all the stats and see all the photos online or in the local newspapers.   But we have a personal  story to tell. This summer we were privileged to serve as  host family to  Y-D player, RYAN GIBSON, a left-handed pitcher from Oklahoma University.  From that day in July, fresh from the College World Series,  when he barely fit through our front door, Ryan and the summer baseball experience that came with him, were beyond compare.  We've lived on the Cape for 13 years and had never been to a Cape League game -shame on us!  This summer we made up for it, attending 3-4 games a week. Cape League games are  family entertainment at its purest - wholesome and fun and FREE, not to mention the top class baseball talent!

              Being a host family to Ryan enriched our summer beyond measure as his presence in our home was a joy and a lot of  fun from start to finish.  We put him on a plane last Saturday, back to his Oklahoma family and his Oklahoma life, hopefully never to forget his summer on Cape Cod with the Y-D Red Sox and the Lomenzo family!

                    The Top 10 Things We LOVE About Dennis Village, Cape Cod - #3

                    Best Fried Clams!

                    Captain Frosty's in Dennis Village
                    Captain Frosty's on Route 6A in Dennis Village


                    Our very own Captain Frosty's made the TOP TEN list of BEST FRIED CLAMS ON CAPE COD!  We would have to agree...which means that we have partaken of the tasty fried treats on more than one occasion!    An added bonus - every entree at Captain Frosty's is accompanied by their signature clam fritters! 

                    The very casual interior  is traditional Cape Cod knotty pine - all booths.  This past winter, Frosty's added some outdoor dining in the front of the restaurant to supplement the patio in the rear.  A great place to go for a late day soft serve ice cream as well!  (They recently added frozen yogurt to their soft serve menu). Does it sound like I know WAY too much about this place? :)

                     Check it out, but go early as the crowds are bound to grow even larger as news of this "award" spreads!

                      The Cape Playhouse

                      The Cape Playhouse

                      In the heart of Dennis Village, tucked away behind Main Street,  is an absolute gem known as the CAPE COD CENTER FOR THE ARTS. This cultural hub consisting of 20 acres is home to The Cape Playhouse, The Cape Cinema and  The Cape Cod Museum of Art. How lucky are we??!

                      The Playhouse' summer stock season began this week featuring TEA AT FIVE with Stephanie Zimbalist in the lead of this bioplay about Katherine Hepburn (saw it on Broadway with Kate Mulgrew - really great.)  Lots of great plays coming up, including GREY GARDENS (also saw this one on Broadway and loved it.)  The Cinema features foreign-type films (no Avatar playing here!!) and is a very special cinema-going experience with it's extra wide seats and, of course, the fantastic Roger Kent mural on the ceiling. ( They occasionally have live shows  like this past April when they featured an indie rock group that was holed up  in Dennis to rehearse for the upcoming Coachella Music Festival in CA. )  The Museum itself is a real treasure, exhibiting the art of outstanding artists and offering art classes for children and adults throughout the year, with special programs in the summer months.  All in all, a very fine cultural center supporting the arts on Cape Cod - and we're so fortunate to have it right here in Dennis!

                      The Top Ten Things We LOVE about Dennis - #1!

                      This is the first in what will be a series on things we love about living in Dennis, MA!

                      Today's post focuses on a little known treasure here in Dennis Village  - HARVEST GALLERY.  There appears to be  a trend in Dennis Village for galleries to have dual personalities! (See my previous post on Borsari Gallery).  Besides being a top notch gallery of contemporary art, Harvest Gallery  is also home to a fabulous wine bar.  As owner/artist Michael Pearson says of his establishment "we entertain all the senses!"  The stylish space hosts the work of 30+ artists (including Pearson himself) as well as the wine bar featuring vintages  from around the world.  A full menu of tasty seasonal food is also offered at small tables and the sit-down bar.  The best part (in my opionion!)??  Harvest Gallery offers LIVE MUSIC by local musicians on weekends!  The Harvest Gallery is a VERY COOL place - don't miss it!

                      P.S.  Harvest Gallery also hosts private parties.  See their website for details.
