Day 560 – (AD 1,719) – 23.8 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning, I pedaled 23.8 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,281.5 miles; 59,998.9 kilometers.

I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 50.06%.

Only 920.1 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Damn, I just could not find the spell-check button on my Blackberry.

Supper last night was a success - Stir-fried Shrimp with Broccoli and easy Asian Cabbage.

BS Coffee Saga

What does one go through to get a cup of coffee?

First, find an Allen Wrench small enough, but not too small to open up the top base of the Orenda Coffee machine.

Second, use a Bamboo Shish Kabob Skewer to dislodge the compacted 1-inch of coffee grounds.

Third, make sure that one has a can of Compressed Air to clean out the grinding compartment. There is now a fine dusting of coffee grounds all over the kitchen.

Four, make sure that all the bits and pieces are cleaned and replaced in their original positions.

Fifth, allow the Orenda Coffee machine to reboot itself.

Sixth, test run. Eureka! We have our 111th cup of Coffee.

Figuring the current cost of said 111th cup of coffee, minus the time, effort, email correspondence with Orenda, and the beans, our 111th cup of coffee costs a mere $3.91.

Genealogy – https://agenealogyhunt.blogspot.com/

Started searching for information regarding your 3-times Great-Grandmother Catherine (née Ganzer) Brunhammer. She was born 17 May 1809 in Dornach, a township in Mulhouse, Haut-Rhin, Alsace, France.

In my search, so far, I have discovered that she had 10 siblings, a number who were born just after the French Revolution. I'm having to work with and convert dates from the French Re-publican calendar.

The French Republican calendar was used for 14 years. Using the conversion, it began on the 22nd of September 1792, which was Vendémiaire 1 Raisin and continued to 1805. It can get somewhat confusing.

Five of GGG-Grandmother Catherine's siblings were born during that period of time.
