Day 206 – (AD 636) – Jim's Trek Part III – 21.5 Miles – Doing Well on My Schwinn Fitness Cycle

Good Day,

Today I pedaled 21.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. Cycling done, sit-up done, banana strawberry smoothie downed.


And yes there is something serene about the desolate virtual highway as I continue on this crazy Trek near the north-western coast of Western Australia. I am now 127 miles from my next goal and destination point.

To believe in a universe that is only 6 or 7 thousand years old is to extinguish most of the light in the most of our galaxy or the rest of the universe” and… If you want to see what’s in a black hole check out your nearest used car lot. Thoughts from Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.

While I pedal my Schwinn 170 I use and dictate my occasional thought to my iPhone. My time, the real time this morning, I said "70 minutes"… Transcribed by my iPhone “Seven emailing me that in a minute.

And then I said “John Herschel – photography” but iPhone repeated “John Herschel photon graffiti

The reason I passed high-school English composition – Leonard Cohen, Arlo Guthrie, and Mr. Patterson, Stanstead College.

Our new quilt design NND is off and running.


Yes my mind is all over the place. Nothing new. Period.

Day 205 – (AD 635) – Jim's Trek Part III – 22.1 Miles – Still on My Schwinn Fitness Cycle

Good Day,

This morning I cycled 22.1 miles on my Schwinn 170. The grand total is now 13,028.1 miles.


I’m not sure that I can stand many more miles of red dirt on my virtual Trek through Western Australia. Yes I am headed north on the National Highway 1, and yes this is a different image from yesterday, and the day before that, and the day before that.

And when looking for Bella, she does not want to be bothered…from time-to-time.

The Sycamores have been revived once again; this is number 5, (not including the countless school and community theater productions). And yes I would like to see it…again. But according AP critic Mark Kennedy, “It would be nice if they (the actors) were all rowing in the same direction.

From the first time I saw ‘You Can’t Take It With You’ I scratched it down as the top of my favorite productions. It still is…and I try to see it whenever I can. Maybe I did instill George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s subliminal and blatant messages in my own credo that many years ago. Guess what may be my next Schwinn 170 viewing companion?

And in 2014 who’s still trying to take it? In 1936, Grandpa Martin Vanderhof relayed “Lincoln said, ‘With malice toward none, with charity to all,’ Nowadays they say, ‘Think the way I do or I’ll bomb the daylights outta you.”

This morning’s blood sugar reading – 91. Last night’s supper, Bacon-wrapped stuffed Salmon Roll and Roasted Cauliflower, Chickpea, and Kalamata Olive Salad. Yes I love food.

Day 204 – (AD 634) – Jim's Trek Part III – 21.3 Miles – 13,006.0 Miles on My Schwinn Fitness Cycle


Good Day,

This morning I pedaled another 21.3 miles on my Schwinn 170. And today I crossed the 13,000 mile mark; 13,006.0 miles, 20,931.2 kilometers. Only 47.77% more to go.

I am now averaging just over 20.5 miles a day. That is the real part.


On my virtual Trek I am located on the National Highway 1 and I am still in the State of Western Australia. I am headed in a northeasterly direction, but the landscape along the roadside still hasn’t changed much.

Why?  Why?  Why? And WHY?


And I think that I will never be able to look at a baby again who has been “head-geared” by some doting parent or grandparent…without cracking up.

Day 203 – (AD 633) – Jim's Trek Part III – 21.3 Miles – Images of Red Dirt on My Schwinn Fitness Cycle

Good Day,

This morning I cycled 21.3 miles on my Schwinn 170 and yes I did get around to doing the 200 sit-ups.  Thank you AJ - One ab, maybe 2...


Today, as every day for the past while, I am on the Great Northern, National Highway 1. I’m down to 192 miles now away from my next destination and goal point.

And when I write and update my Jim’s Trek, I have come to accept… (Hell it’s been 665 posts and I do claim a very British background), when you, the reader say “No yeah that’s very interesting” – Meaning: "You are boring me to death."

Maybe a shallow reason for breaking up a relationship –


It was four days before my birthday and s/he said s/he was going to get me a gift. I knew I couldn’t break up with her/him for at least 30 days after accepting her/his gift and I wasn’t willing to make a 34-day commitment to the relationship.

This Johnny-come-lately just stumbled upon a very good series on PBS, Art21 – Art in The Twenty-First Century. This morning as my pedaling companion I watched Boundaries featuring the artists – David Altmejd, Lynda Benglis, Tabaimo, Eli Sudbrack, and Christophe Hamaide-Pierson.

And The Daily Meal hits a touch-down with Julie Ruggirello's article "10 Foods That Aren't Worth Making From Scratch".  But I think that there is a subliminal deception in Dan Myers' write up "The 11 Best Chain Restaurant All-You-Can-Eat-Deals"... Say what?

Day 202 – (AD 632) – Jim's Trek Part III – 22.2 Miles – Eighty Mile Beach Caravan Park on My Schwinn Fitness Cycle

Good Day,

I feel extremely small. This morning’s viewing companion was the first episode of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. Just amazing…and no, I am not cycling off to Pluto with V-ger.

My address apart from Tampa, Florida, United States, and North America continues on to

Earth, Solar System, Milky Way Galaxy, Local Group, Virgo Supercluster, Observable Universe, and beyond.

Hell, I’m less than a speck of dust on my Schwinn 170.

This morning I cycled 22.2 miles on my Schwinn 170. My total miles to date are 12,963.4; 20,862.6 kilometers…and it is just 14 seconds to midnight.


I am currently located, on the virtual part of my Trek, near the north-western coast of Western Australia. I am still located on the National Highway 1. Yes the road still looks the same as it did yesterday and the days before that. I did take a quick turn off the road to get a look at the Eighty Mile Beach Caravan Park, and it appears that finally I have company.


Egg pudding. And if I may comment, I think this is gross…but I do live by the adage “Try it you may like it.”

I love gadgets, especially kitchen ones, but an Okashina Tamago Mawashite Mawashite Marugoto Purin (literally, Pudding Whole Turn Turn Funny Eggs), is just not something I would want to see in my stocking this Christmas.

This mini-slot machine hand-cranks, what appears to be the white and the yolk of an egg, in the whole egg into a sort-of like solid custard. The animation of the spinning egg is just worth the watch. Of course there are instructions for what appears to be a scrambled/unscrambled egg… And of course I can think of the Easter bunny getting a wee bit dizzy.

Afghan #7 is beginning to lengthen and we are continuing the start/stop quilting work on our new Equality quilt. I guess I need to update our current projects status.
