This morning I pedaled 22.5 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals: 23,629.8 miles; 38,028.5 kilometers; 1,106 days.
My location, the virtual part of the journey, is at SS309, 35020 Codevigo PD, Italy.
I’m getting very tired of this 2016 Presidential campaign. I have to ask myself is there any one of the current 5 candidates that I really want to see as the next President?
The answer is no.
Do I really think that anyone of the current five remaining candidates truly represent what I would like to see of a person who represents the United States of America?
Do I think that there is at least one person of the, assuming that at least 50% of the 245 million Americans who may be 35 years or older eligible, would be better than the five current candidates?
The answer is yes.
Do I think that if any one of the five candidates is to be our next President s/he will do a good job?
The answer is beyond my crystal ball.
Are we electing a President to represent us, the United States of America, and to represent us a person that we can respect and look to for leadership?
The answer is that we should be.
But will this happen on Tuesday, November 8, 2016?
I bloody well hope so.
And I can only design quilts, bake bread, and pedal… and write.
The binding on our new Parity quilt is excellent.

And we’ve begun the new design for our quilted fabric art, Wings. We’re going to try something we haven’t as yet. Will it work?

Also I am trying a new recipe for Kneaded Sourdough Bread. Ingredients: 2 ⅓ cups of sourdough starter (aka Fred); scant tablespoon of salt; 3 ⅓ cups bread flour; and 1 – 1 ½ cups of water. And I have discovered a new exercise technique to be included in my exercise – 20 minutes of kneading.
The sourdough loaves are rising now between 4 and 24 hours.
