Day 174 – (AD 1,079) – 23.0 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – 23,007.8 Miles On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,



This morning I began my next 6-day set and pedaled 23.0 miles on my Schwinn 170. And today is another milestone day; I have now cycled over 23,000 miles on my Schwinn Fitness cycles. My totals: 23,007.8 miles; 37,027.5 kilometers. I have also completed 92.4% of my overall goal.



Google Maps has me located at SP91, 73059 Ugento LE, Italy today. And my next destination is only 13.0 miles to the southeast.

Is it a fad? Or is it really here to stay? “Why you should pencil some colouring-in into your routine” Agence France-Presse, March 5, 2016.
Color Me Calm


But for the makers of crayons and colour pencils, the trend also poses a fundamental strategic question: is this boom in demand just a passing fad or a sustainable trend?




As soon as I saw and heard Mr. Trump request his audience… (the Roman aka the Bellamy Salute)… this is something to think about.

The Oath of the Horatii (1786), by Jacques-Louis David

“Variations on the salute also appear in neo-fascist contexts. For example, The Christian Falangist Party, founded in 1985, uses a "pectoral salute," in which the right arm, bent at the elbow, is extended from the heart, palm down. This gesture was used in François Truffaut's 1966 film Fahrenheit 451. The film portrays a futuristic totalitarian society modeled after the fascist state, including black uniforms, book burnings, and thought control.” (Wikipedia, Roman Salute
