Day 79 – (AD 984) – 24.2 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – 20.1 mph On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled 24.1 miles on my Schwinn 170, and I am still keeping to my 72-minute time limit. But I seem to be benefiting by taking one day off, I hit an average of 20.1 mph at the 60-minute mark. My totals to date are now 20,794.4 miles; 33,465.4 kilometers.

And this may be some touch of synchronicity, I am in France just south of the city if Toulouse.



I am located at 114-126 Route d'Espagne, 31120 Portet-sur-Garonne, France.

Question – I’ve noted that a number of conspiracy-seekers are currently banding about the current horrific slaughter of people in Paris, in Beirut, and the downing of the Russian airliner in Egypt as the possibility of World War III. Is it?

Aryn Baker, TIME’s Africa correspondent justifiably writes -

Whatever the reasons—and there are many—for the disparity of global reaction, the message that emerges from these twinned events is that some lives matter more than others. ISIS is not just a French problem, or, if the ISIS claims to have downed the Russian airliner in Egypt are verified, a Russian problem. It is not just a Lebanese problem. Until there is some recognition that an ISIS attack on one country is an attack on all, ISIS will be everybody’s problem—a problem that won’t be solved.

Two loaves of bread fresh from the oven; White (left) and Whole Wheat Sourdough (right). Both No-Knead loaves #54 and #55.  (Follow Jim's Gotta Eat...)



I thought I screwed up when I was baking the bread, but lunch certainly proved me wrong.




Lunch sandwich – Fresh slices from Loaf #54, Pork, Provolone, Pickles, and Mustard. Maybe I will succeed in this No-Knead Artisan Bread challenge.

Daughter Light quilt and wall-hanging update. The moon was lightened. Looks one heck of a lot better than some ominous planet heading to the earth.




We’ve started the quilting of the floating hearts. The thread stitching is not in any ditch and it is not the appliquéing, it is sort of an outlining of each heart. And yes this is called outline quilting.
