Sounds a little high if under no strain, 190 is the normal thermostat and mine stays there or under in normal driving.

Yes that is normal. It should run a needle width kept or right while driving.

Water boils at 229 at sea level but a 50/50 anti- freeze mix but is much higher.

It is designed to run at that temp so don't mess with it. Any cooler and the ecu will make it run rich and the your already crappy mileage will get worse.

By any chance do you have a body lift?

Reason I ask, with a body lift, the body goes up, the radiator goes down to stay in the original relationship with the motor. The radiator loses some of it cooling capacity now because it is lower than the grill openings. and in my case the plastic filler plate between bumper and grill was inclined the lift height, resulting in no air getting to the lower radiator. Removed the plastic plate on mine and PRESTO temperature dropped 10 degrees. Now I am considering going back and putting in a higher T'stat. Just a thought . . . may want to check.
