Today marks the 1,894th day in a row that I have walked (sometimes jogged) each and every day for approximately 5 miles.   It is an endeavor that now is very much a habit and is second nature to me.  It has been very helpful for me physically (normal BMI) and emotionally (helps me to reduce stress.  I am glad I do this, and I am glad I have the motivator of being able to get such a large number.  Even though the number plays a less crucial role these days as the habit is established, I still like the idea now that I am approaching a close milestone (1900) and also moving towards a really big milestone number of 2000.  I hope I keep up my consistency.

That fine Barber dime is worth $1.43 today. Not such a big deal, 1434% over 6 score years, now is it?

But the 1964 Washington dime is worth the same, and that is only 50 years hence. Now according to the BLS, a 1964 dime should be worth only $75 cents now, if we go by the CPI...

But hey, maybe gold is overpriced. I dunno, but if you plug 1913 into the same year of that BLS, CPI calculator, then think that dime is worth $2.36...

Silver values sure do fluctuate depending on what segment of history you're looking at, don't they, Lucky 'ol Leo?

I admire you for all this walking. Walking gives you time to be alone with your thoughts and tune out the maddening clatter we live with these days.
