Day 570 – (AD 1,729) – 24.1 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

On the 2nd Day of Christmas, I don’t need any more pets. Fours dogs are quite enough. And Happy Boxing Day to one and all.

This morning I pedaled 24.1 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,519.34 miles; 60,381.8 kilometers.

I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 84.54%.

Only 682.2 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Question: Why is it that some persons feel that the older the get, the more entitled they think they should be?

The math approximates, but an approximation is better than the lies coming out of the Oval Office. From The Washington Post, “Based on Trump’s detailed diagram of his slat wall, here is some advanced mathematics”, by Philip Bump, Dec. 23, 2018.

“What’s more, a nine-inch gap wouldn’t necessarily keep people out. In 2010, a prisoner in a jail in Tennessee escaped his cell by covering himself with grease and squeezing between bars set 4.5 inches apart. He would have found the steel slats — with gaps between that are twice that size — practically roomy.”

This week begins an experiment and a challenge to me.

The experiment – Repurpose Holiday leftovers. Leftovers are, and each will be the primary ingredient in each individual dish and meal – Smoked Sausage; Mac & Cheese; Pulled Pork; Mashed Sweet Potatoes; and Rice.

The challenge – Make a great Biscuit.
