Day 564 – (AD 1,723) – 23.6 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled 23.6 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,376.5 miles; 60,151.8 kilometers.

I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 63.83%.

Only 825.1 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

BS Coffee Saga -

And everything was going so great.

On cup of coffee # 126, the Orenda Coffee Machine STOPPED! Once again.

Yes, I had to take the machine apart, and clean out the accumulated fine grounds. There is now a covering of grounds all over the kitchen.

Yes, it is now working again. And yes, we got our 126th cup of Coffee, brewed to the way we wanted it to be.

BUT, the Orenda Coffee Machine is NOT the kitchen appliance that you would wish upon your worst enemy unless your close friend has a Mechanical Engineering degree. It is NOT for the faint-hearted, or for the regular day-to-day coffee drink consumer.

Our rating, now, is Buyer Beware.

And we still now have 309 cups of coffee to make in order to recoup the cost of the machine.

Our 126th cup of coffee cost $3.44.

Our Tampa Bay Fried Chicken Test.

This weekend we opted for another franchise for our Fried Chicken Test; Popeye's Louisiana Chicken. Yes, it is fast-food, and that in consideration, the results are, per our opinion are charted.

Any suggestions, in the Tampa Bay area, just send me your comments.

Our Cranes Quilts Update -

The work has begun on our, what we are currently calling, Monster Crane Quilt.

The Monster Crane is based on an image that I found online of a print of an Origami Crane based on the work of the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. It will be our interpretation of the same, as we will create a Crane Quilt using our strip-piecing technique.

The Monster Crane Quilt will be approximately a 45/46" square.

Our Hope - Cranes Quilts - Project will premiere in January in Clearwater. Stay-tuned for updates.
