Days 586 & 587 – (AD 1,747) – 24.6 + 24.4 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Yesterday morning, I pedaled 24.6 miles on my Schwinn 170. This morning I pedaled another 24.4 miles. Totals are now 37,929.3 miles; 61,041.4 kilometers.

I am now located at 34.06% of my current destination point goal.


Only 272.3 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek. My original goal is 38,201.6 miles. That goal is the total number of miles of the equatorial circumferences of both the Earth and Mars.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Politics is getting more and feeble and deplorable.


Do we, as the electorate, elect them to their positions to get something done?

Day 585 – (AD 1,744) – 24.2 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Yesterday morning, I pedaled 24.2 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,880.3 miles; 60,962.6 kilometers.

I am now located at 29.89% of my current destination point goal.


Only 321.3 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek. My original goal is 38,201.6 miles. That goal is the total number of miles of the equatorial circumferences of both the Earth and Mars.

The question is, since I began this Trek 6 years, 1 month and 14 days ago, do I continue the additional time into the future to set a new total goal of 50,000 miles?

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Last night’s supper was a combination of two dishes from two parts of the world, Cajun Shrimp and Grits with Nanjing New Year’s Salad. Both dishes received a high passing grade.



The recipe for the Nanjing New Year’s Salad was from Fuchsia Dunlop’s Land of Fish and Rice.

Day 583 & 584 – (AD 1,743) – 24.4 + 24.4 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

On Friday, I pedaled 24.4 miles on my Schwinn 170. This morning I pedaled another 24.4 miles. Totals are now 37,831.7 miles; 60,884.3 kilometers.

My PC is back at home, with a new graphics board. After I reached my goal destination at Ascraeus Mons. I have computed a new goal and destination point at Echus Montes. The distance between Ascraeus Mons and Echus Montes is, according to Wolfram Alpha 960 miles.


I am now located at 27.29% of the 930-mile distance.

But you will notice that I only have 345.5 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek. This means I have made up my mind about journey. Stay-tuned for the upcoming Jim's Trek Part VI.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

“An episode of a 1950s Western TV series has resurfaced, (which I discovered last week), because of its surprising parallels to real-life.

Trackdown, which ran for two seasons between 1957 and 1959, had an instalment called “The End of the World” that featured a rabble-rousing doomsayer named Trump who scares the townsfolk by claiming disaster is on its way. He believes he’s the only one who can save them, and his method is... to build a wall.”

This is the complete episode.



 Where's the Chick-fil-A?

Last night’s supper was a Chicken Noodle Laksa Soup. This was outstanding on the BS Scale.


Laksa Noodle Soup, Peranakan or Nyonya cuisine.

A number of steps but the outcome was amazing.

One of my 4 favorite foods from one of the places that I have lived is a Tourtière. I hadn’t made one this past Holiday Season and so I decided to attempt my hand once again.

There are many variations and recipes of this French-Canadian Meat Pie. Follow the link to see the one I followed.


Supper plate included a generous slice of Tourtière, Mashed Turnip and Mixed Vegetables.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –




Is it my imagination or are the effective noise levels and associated verbal decibels of waiting rooms increasing?

Or is my hearing, as I age, becoming more sensitive...even though the studies recount that I be should losing the competency of my aural faculty?




The Facebook “25 limit” is deemed a hoax.

“According to Snopes, this Facebook hoax first surfaced in December but began circulating more widely in January, around the time that Facebook announced a significant change to its philosophy about what kinds of status updates should be given a priority.”

From USA Today - “Facebook limiting status updates in news feed to 25 friends? That's a hoax, pass it on” , Jessica Guynn, Feb. 6, 2018

Last night’s supper - My take on Epicurious’ “Noodles with Spicy Ground Pork”. I used Rice Noodles and Gai Lan.



Que serviriez-vous, avec l'une de mes recettes préférées, de l'un des pays dans lesquels j'ai vécu?

Mon indice - C'est Noël passé.
