Today I cycled 21.6 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 31,505.1 miles; 50,702.6 kilometers.
And I have completed 37.67% of the 820 miles to my next destination and goal point.
"But flat-Earthers tend to have complicated, often contradictory, explanations of how astronomy works in the absence of a round Earth. The Flat Earth Society pushes a view in which the sun rotates over the top of the disk of the Earth like a baby's mobile at a much closer distance than the 93 million miles (150 million kilometers) away that it actually is. The other planets — which, in this theory, are also much smaller and closer than they are in reality — orbit the sun, the Flat Earth Society believes."
I’ve always wondered at the education level or lack there-of persons who subscribe to these far-out theologies.
From another article by LiveScience.com by Natalie Wolchover and Staff May 30, 2017 -
“ The leading flat-earther theory holds that Earth is a disc with the Arctic Circle in the center and Antarctica, a 150-foot-tall wall of ice, around the rim. NASA employees, they say, guard this ice wall to prevent people from climbing over and falling off the disc.”

Our Cranes update - We have now created 2 more sizes of our Cranes blocks. We now have, when sewn, a 3", 4", 5" and 6" Crane pattern. All have die-cutters created with AccuQuilt. Here is a 3-inch with a shiny Lincoln. Also, a comparison between the 3-inch and the 6-inch.
