Day 358 – (AD 788) – 21.9 Miles – Jim's Trek Part III – Continuing On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Bella decided that she was bored with my getting up this morning.

This glorious morning I pedaled 21.9 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals to date are 16,362.8 miles; 26,333.4 kilometers. I have completed 65.7% of my overall cycling goal.

I am consistent on this crazy journey…but I can honestly say that I am getting bored... again.

I am located on the National Highway A2. Nice thing is that Google Maps have updated their road images.



Today’s snagged image was taken about 3 months ago in Queensland sometime in December of 2014. Yesterday’s road photo was grabbed from about 6 years about. As you can see not much has changed…expect maybe the clarity and/or definition of the newer image.

Crossing my fingers as my blood sugar seems to be heading in a positive downward direction. This morning it registered at 95.

My viewing companion this morning while I pedaled was the beginning of Orphan Black. A very interesting, initially somewhat confusing, sci-fi drama about the idea of cloning.



Initially I thought it was located in London, then in the United States, and then Canada. Confused? I still am…sort of, I think.


And speaking about cloning, see it just may have been the answer that I have been looking for regarding Pokemon.

 

Always wondered where this cartoon may have originated.  The left - the cartoon.  The right - Sea Slug - Thecacera pacifica.

Political promises are never what they appear.

 “A tale of two budget proposals leaves Gov. Rick Scott’s tax cuts, education spending at risk
– Michael Van Sickler, Miami Herald, March 20, 2015 .

Less than two months ago, an enthusiastic Gov. Rick Scott, fresh off his reelection victory, unveiled his plan to spend Florida’s $1 billion surplus.

…Now that lawmakers might be facing a potential $1.3 billion hole in the healthcare budget, many of Scott’s once-attainable goals are in sudden limbo as money gets shifted around to cover gaps…"
