I just received notice that I began this crazy idea of Jim's Trek 6 years ago today.
Since then I have pedaled 1,710 days on my Schwinn Fitness cycles. And to date I have cycled 37,037.1 miles.
I am getting close to the end of the 5th part of this Trek and my goal of the total of the circumferences of the Earth and of Mars 38,201.6. miles.
This morning I pedaled 24.6miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,037.1 miles; 59,653.8 kilometers.
I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 18.99%.
Only 1,134.5 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Our Cranes Quilts Update -
We're working on the last 4 quilts of our Cranes Spectrum.
Stage 1 of the quilting is to outline all Cranes.
Last 4 Cranes Quilts are created with Sew Batik fabrics that will fit each one into at least one of the 6 color Sets.
Did you ever notice that there is a method to the direction that our Cranes on any specific Cranes Quilt may be facing?
Follow our progress and updates at our FB Quilts SB page - https://www.facebook.com/QuiltsbySB/
Our Hope - Cranes Quilts - Project will premiere in January in Clearwater. Stay-tuned for up-dates.

Genealogy – https://agenealogyhunt.blogspot.com/
There is a recent quiet hoopla regarding the publication of articles stating, “that there may be a possibility of mtDNA being passed from the paternal parent to his offspring”.
Medical Xpress, November 27, 2018 by Bob Yirka “Researchers find rare instances of male mtDNA being passed on to offspring”
The key words in the heading are “rare instances”. And further there are only 17 cases of people with mtDNA from both parents, and the focus was with respect of “experiencing maladies traced to mitochondrial mutations”.
“The researchers suggest it is likely that some males carry genetic mutations that prevent their mtDNA from being destroyed, thus allowing it to allow remain active in the mitochondria of their offspring, along with the maternal mtDNA. They suggest further that their findings might prove useful in combating some types of mitochondrial ailments.”
It is not time to jump on a band wagon and believe that ancestry and genealogy can now provide extra information regarding historical connections. The study is small, and it is concentrated upon certain ailments.
And yes, this does not have anything to do with lederhosen or kilts.
