Day 188 – (AD 1,093) – 23.5 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I pedaled 23.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. Yes this is a recording, not created by a bot-mind, and my totals are: 23,330.2 miles; 37,546.4 kilometers.

That was the real part. My virtual location, in the recesses of my grey matter, is now at a point at Strada Statale 16 Adriatica, 66020 Torino di Sangro CH, Italy.



This is my 188th day of Part IV of my Trek and it is the 1,093rd day of the overall time that I have been doing this. Only 6.3% of my overall total miles remaining, and just 79 more pedaling days.

This morning the spammers are out in full force; this time from “ecare2 at cc dot sprintpcs dot com”. The gist of the email,

Thank you for your recent call to discuss your Sprint account. The next time you have questions, we hope you’ll give out online resources a try…” 

Bunch of bloody BS! I have never, ever in the 30+ years that I have lived in the United States of America had a Sprint account. And the bogus email has 7 hyper-links embedded in the email.

The “Customer Service Team, Transaction ID:33161453” wants me to manage my account including “make a payment and view your (my) bill… on our website…

Bloody hell, you would think that they, whoever “ecare2” is, would have done some homework. I do not or ever have had a Sprint account. But then again I do have the most common name in the English language. And there are 2 attachments including the Sprint logo.

I just wonder how many innocent persons will truly be taken in on the likes of this crap.

New Parity quilt update: Our corresponding quilting pattern is progressing just great. Oh yeah, we’ve decided to use two (2) layers of cotton batting to produce a thicker quilt.

Parity - Quilting in progress


Gonna try something completely different in the next quilt/wall-hanging piece that we are about to start. This design will be sort of a fabric collage with elements of fussy cutting and appliquéing. Should prove interesting.

Also working on a very new geometric design to complete a complete queen-size bedspread.

Two loaves completed today: #104 – Sourdough No-Knead (home-made starter still alive); #105 – Raisin White Turbo No-Knead. The Sourdough rose and proofed for about 18 hours; the Raisin White for about 2 hours.
