Day 246 – (AD 1,408) – 19.8 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – Curb The Cheese On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I pedaled 19.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. Yes, I’m still going. Totals now are getting closer. And now they stand at 29,860.7 miles; 48,056.2 kilometers.


And this morning I have completed 75.8 % of the distance to my destination and goal point.


Early morning blood sugar count was up at 130 mg/dL. Guess I’ve got to stop snacking on too, too much cheese. I love cheese, and when I start I just can’t stop. All-things-being equal there is 28 grams of carbohydrates in one slice of Cheddar Cheese.

I just couldn’t stop. And then I ate supper, double helpings of course. Supper was very, good.


Soapbox –



Are these the gasps of a terminated Julius?



From Rolling Stone by Matt Tabbi, Aug 21, 2017 “Why Trump Can’t Quit the Alt-Right.

“Well, it's over now – right? He may have three and a half years left in office, but Donald Trump is finished. The Charlottesville tragedy was the final stake through the Grinch-heart of his presidency. If he didn't deserve it so enormously much, it would be sad...
...Trump has shown, once again, that his power to bring out the worst in people is limitless. And we should know by now that he's never finished, never beaten. Historically, he's most dangerous when he's at his lowest. And he's never been lower than now.”

And then today, August 23, Julie Hirschfeld Davis of The New York Times reports “Trump to Congress: Fund the Wall or I’ll Shut the Government.

“President Trump issued an extraordinary challenge to his own party late Tuesday, threatening to shut down the government in a matter of weeks if Congress did not fund a wall on the southern border that was a signature promise of his campaign for the White House.”

Day 245 – (AD 1,407) – 21.1 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,


This morning for some reason I was up with the post-eclipsed sun. I walked The Pack and then decided that today I was going to make bread. I’ve got three types in various stages – Bran Bread; 8-Grain Bread; and Egg and Oil White Bread. All versions are using the no-knead version. And the house smells fantastic.


And then I got on my Schwinn 170 and pedaled 21.1 miles. Totals now stand at 29,840.9 miles; 48,024.4 kilometers. My completed percentage is now 78.11%.


This morning I have completed 71.3% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.

Right now, we’re beginning the work on a portfolio of quilts. Any ideas? Who knows where this will lead us.

Day 244 – (AD 1,406) – 20.7 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,



This morning is August 21 and Audrey III through XII in anticipation of 2:49 pm here in Tampa.





Today I pedaled my Schwinn 170 20.7 miles. Totals 29,819.8 miles; 47,990.4 kilometers.


And I have covered 66.5% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.

This morning my A1c dropped another point. It’s got to keep going and the downward trend. (The calculation is worked on the average of my early morning glucose blood count over a moving period of 90 days plus 46.7 all divided by 28.7.)

Last night’s supper came directly from Daisy Martinez, Daisy Cooks! Grandma’s Spaghetti with Chicken and Garlic Bread. (pages 156 and 157). Damn good!




Just wondering why I felt sort of blah today. Could be the eclipse of the sun. Check my biorhythms.


In general, a rhythm at 0% is thought to have no real impact on your life, whereas a rhythm at +100% (a high) would give you an edge in that area, and a rhythm at -100% (a low) would make life more difficult in that area. There is no particular meaning to a day on which your rhythms are all high or all low, except the obvious benefits or hindrances that these rare extremes are thought to have on your life.

Day 243 – (AD 1,405) – 21.0 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled my Schwinn 170 for my allotted 1 hour and recorded 21.0 more miles. Totals now at 29,799.1 miles; 47,957.1 kilometers. The best number of my calculations Is that I finally have completed 78.00% of my intended journey.


Meanwhile, on Mars, I have finished 61.8% of 440 miles to my next goal point.

Tried something completely different for supper last night – Moosewood’s Huevos Rancheros.


It’s almost a complete vegetarian meal, depending on whether you call eggs not vegan. I believe the term is “Ovo-vegetarian”. Check out “Types of Vegetarians” by Jolinda Hackett at The Spruce.

Wondering if they give out certificates or diplomas.


Question – Recently I “do not have permission to delete this item(s)” on my iPhone via my PC. Previously I was able. Previously I had “Administrative” control, now it is telling me that I don’t. Does anyone have a suggestion?




Update on MTBD – All quilting completed, The appliqué is done. Now on to the label.

Day 242 – (AD 1,404) – 20.7 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This late morning, I pedaled my Schwinn 170 20.7 miles. Totals now at 29.778.1 miles; 47,923.3 kilometers. Anticipation is mounting at the odometer turning the 30-thousand-mile mark.


And I have now completed 57.1% of the distance to my next destination.

This morning in our entrance somehow a large dragonfly got inside.

I have always been intrigued by dragonflies. Not the darning-needle types, but the ones which are a beauty of creation.

I put it on the kitchen counter fearing that one of The Pack would think that it was a tasty morsel. It looked like it had seconds to exist.

It then crawled up on my finger and then jumped to my shirt. I then took it outside and placed it carefully on a fern-leaf on a palm in the sun.

It rested for a bit.

Then flew away.

There’s more to worry about than the media scooping the stories concerning statues and inanimate objects.
