Day 210 – (AD 1,372) – Miles Today – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning, intermittently while I was making bread, I cycled my Schwinn 170 20.1 miles. Totals now stand at 29,129.7 miles; 46,875.0 kilometers.



And meanwhile, on Mars, I’ve completed 18.3% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.


Yes, I am still making bread…and just now out of the oven - No-Knead Raisin Caraway Bread. And it still is singing.






News –

Finally, Jeff Vinik’s vision has a name: Water Street Tampa” (Tampa Bay Times, Justine Griffin, June 27, 2017)



Great news for Tampa…

But I remember previous projects in the past 3 decades. Tampa has grown, yes, but many of the ideas have just floated on by. Austin Place, Ybor City, Westshore Boulevard, Hyde Park, just to name a few. Maybe I’ll be around for the new ones. Here’s hoping.

I think I need this house just to hang our quilts…(Yes, there are quilts on display.)



And speaking about quilts, our newest and latest, WOW. Here's the first sample block -

The new revamped GOP, if one can call it that, Health Plan… is truly not a health plan but a scratch-off ticket.





Watch for our 2 new quilts currently in the design phase. Again, something completely different.

Supper last night – Chicken with Mushrooms and Bean Sprouts and Long Beans on Jasmine Rice.



Early morning blood sugar count dropped considerably by 29 points. Long, long way to go.

Soapbox -

Day 206 – (AD 1,368) – 19.7 Miles Today – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today, once again I pedaled another 19.7 miles on my Schwinn 170. I’m just wondering whether the fact that I have now reached 65 ½ years of age I seem to have slowed down somewhat on my Schwinn Fitness cycle. Totals to date 29,041.6 miles; 46,738.0 kilometers. I now have 24%, give or take, of my overall goal of 38,201.6 miles remaining…that’s 9,160.0 miles.



I reached my destination and goal point and I pedaled just a wee bit further 4.8 miles. My new destination is Tisia Valles which is, according to WolframAlpha is 490 miles from Denning Crater.



Last night’s supper, double helping dropped my early morning blood glucose count today by 43 points. Definitely positive direction to 147 mg/dL.

Spinach Penne, Shrimp, Roasted Red Pepper, Black Olives, Basil, Olive Oil, Garlic, and Chilis.



This supper is ranked on the “let’s do this one again” scorecard.

Tonight, I’m having Jamaican Patties. This is my moistest, favorite of all...
