Kitchen was busy - Texas Trash Pie.  It has been years since I've made a pie.


My version of Sauerteig Landbrot


German Farmers' Sourdough White Wheat Bread with Brotgewürz (Fennel; Anise; Coriander; and Caraway.)

Something new in the kitchen - Orange Olive Oil Cake.


Gonna service it with a dollop of Marmelad Apelsin & Fläder.

Supper last night, and my early morning blood sugar dropped 10 points.

Day 558– (AD 1,717) – 23.4 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Yes, this is our house.


This morning, I pedaled 23.4 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,233.7 miles; 59,921.9 kilometers.

I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 43.13%.


Only 967.9 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Jim’s Gotta Eat – https://jimsgottaeat.blogspot.com/

Got into a discussion this past week, as to whether I was using a correct recipe or not for Cacio e Pepe. Believe it or not, my hackles seemed to stay put, and I remained extremely calm.


Needless, to say I was told that “when in Rome…”.

Is that a good way to begin any type of food argument.

I quickly did an Internet search using the question “How many recipes for ‘Cacio e Pepe’ can be found?”. What can I say? “About 1,140,000 results” and/or hits.

I do not claim to be a gourmand. I do not claim to be an educated chef. I am just me, and I love to cook. Hell, Jim’s gotta eat. Punto!

And I made my dinner of Cacio e Pepe. And I wanted seconds.



The results of this week's Fried Chicken test are in. We're still looking for the best Fried Chicken in Tampa Bay.


Last night we ventured to Fred's Market Restaurant in Riverview, on US - 301. Fred's is a local area franchise, with 4 locations.


Our opinion - Fried Chicken was good. Best Mashed Potatoes and Gravy so far. And the Rutabagas, well I really want that recipe.

Restaurant was crowded, and do not expect to go there for a quiet meal. Service was very, very pleasant.

These are our opinions. The red line is our beginning location. If you have a suggestion, please let us know.

Decided, as I haven’t for a couple of weeks, to bake some Olive Oil Sourdough Bread.


Also, thinking about doing some extra baking, just to keep out some of the blahs that can happen around this time of the year.

Another loaf went just gone into the oven.

Day 555 – (AD 1,714) – 23.8 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning, I pedaled 23.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,162.6 miles; 59,807.5 kilometers.


I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 32.83%.

Only 1,039.0 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

It is just one of those blah type days. It is the type of days that somethings feel up and other things feel down. It is sort of a jumble of mixed feelings going on inside of me. And the whole thing is that I’m not sure which area of my thought processes I should focus on.

And yes, I could and thoroughly analyze and understand my Cognitive Triangle (CT). But in this case in seems as if there are multiple CTs that I am attempting to cope with.

Days 553 & 554 – (AD 1,713) – 24.0 + 23.6 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

December 2, 2012, the day I began this crazy Jim’s Trek. I have now been cycling my Schwinn Fitness Cycles for 1,713 days.


I have covered 37,138.8 miles; 59,769.2 kilometers, and that is equal to the circumference of the Earth and just about the circumference of Mars. I only have 1,062.8 miles to go to complete my original goal.

All things being equal I will finish in about 60 more day, give or take.

Saturday morning, I pedaled 24.0 miles on my Schwinn 170. This morning I cycled 23.6 miles. Totals are now 37,138.8 miles; 59,769.2 kilometers.


I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 29.38%.

Only 1,062.8 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

December begins early -

My phone rings.

Veronica: "This is Veronica calling for James Smith."

Me: "You are calling, concerning?"

Veronica: "This is Veronica calling from Orthopedic Systems."

Me: "And you are calling because?"

Veronica: "I am calling because you are having lower back pain and problems."

Me: "Yes, I am having much lower pain because you are calling me."

Veronica: "Oh!" You are having pain?"

Click. Veronica hangs up.

As I mentioned I have linked into what I believe is your Katz Family line reaching back to your 10-times Great-Grandparents Katz.

The information includes documentation and references to BMD registrations, especially in and around the towns of Durlach and Pforzheim in Baden, Germany.

Here is a created Brunhammer Katz Descendant Tree.
