Day 308 – (AD 738) – 21.8 Miles – Jim's Trek Part III – Hugh River on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,


This morning I pedaled 21.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. In 738 days I have now pedaled 15,266.6 miles, the equivalent of 24,569.3 kilometers.


I am located at the crossing of the Stuart Highway at Hugh River, and headed in a southwesterly direction. I’m looking for the water. The Australian Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting a 24 Hour Rainfalls for this area today of “>0.2 to 9 mm”. I could be wrong; they could be reporting at least 0.0 mm.

The question is whether I am going to lose the battle against my rising blood sugar numbers. The fall-out of the last of the Christmas treats, Tortuga Caribbean Rum Cake, is now finished. (Delicious, but now gone.) My early morning blood sugar count is up another 5 points. I am still not on any diabetes medications, and now, January 26th begins the assault to bring my numbers back into line.


Supper last night was a dish of Thai Chicken Curry – Chicken, Zucchini, Onion, Thai Curry Paste, Coconut Milk, Miso Broth, Straw Mushrooms, and Cilantro on Jasmine Rice.

I do like food…but…when I cannot pronounce the majority of the chemical ingredients I sort of steer clear.  I wonder if the saying "You are what you eat" is true?

And something really strange just happened while I was watching a quick video from The San Francisco Globe on “How To Make A Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich” on my PC.  (I obsess about food.)

Out of nowhere, actually not no-where but just on my desk, my iPad started talking out loud. Yep, that’s right. Right out loud my iPad started to have a conversation about grilled cheese sandwiches with the guy in the video discussing the perfect method. I think I am a little bit freaked out…

But this has to be a sign. And you know what? I am going to try to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich.

And is it media spin or did he really say that? “Now, Scott says, we can pay or rent, buy a car, help keep our economy growing, maybe even start a business.” This is supposedly his comment following that he is “trying to get us a whole $43 a year in tax cuts for our cellphones, land lines and TV services”. (Orlando Sentinel, January 21, 2015)

My question - Is that for each for each individual service? Or per household? Or per account number?

Today we start with the workings of the designs for three new quilts – Moon Over Bayshore, Reflection, and TBA.  Follow us at Quilts SB.
