Day 185 ½ – (AD 1,090 ½) – 0.0 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – Day of Rest, No Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today’s a good day to rest from my Schwinn 170. Only 6.6% remaining of my overall and total mileage goal.



It looks like a 50% change of rain and storms forecasted today for the Tampa Bay area may be just what I need to finally recover from this damn flu-like bug that’s been on hold-over. Also a good downpour will do wonders to wash away the golden burdens of the current pollen intensification.

Question - If we've already had a downpour, a pretty good one at that, and there is still more storms forecast for the rest of the day, does that mean that there is now only a 25% chance of rain?  Or is it still, yes or no, 50%?



Supper tonight – Green Turkey Chili, (not sure why it is called Green) – Ground Turkey, Smoked Turkey, Onions, Garlic, Roasted Poblano Peppers, Tomatillos, Jalapeño, Cumin, Chili Powder, Pepper, Roasted Tomatoes, Chicken Broth, Cilantro, Lime. And dessert, just now baking, Carrot Cake Mini-Muffins.


Thought for today – From James Lovegrove’s article in Financial Times - Opinion, “Science fiction can create almost any future we want (March 18, 2016)

“When we say that an innovation is “like something out of science fiction”, the implication is that SF is a fund of ideas whose time has not yet arrived. All it takes is for modern technology to catch up with the yearnings of SF creators past and present, and soon the world will be bejewelled with glorious devices which their books (and TV shows and movies) have somehow helped to spawn…”

Our new Parity quilt update - The sandwich pinning and quilting in-the-ditch is done. Now the complementary geometric pattern will be developed; the border will be pebbled. And yes this is beginning to look like the current definition of a “modern quilt”…




I definitely need to update our list of works-in-progress at Quilts SB. We’ve added 4 more new quilts to our schedule.
