Teams! Storms!

Tim A. Cummins @ 6:44 pm  

Sunday night I added material for my twitter feed. They all come from my sermon notes!

This morning, I got the word that the fellowship hall where we have The Show was flooded! Fortunately, our stuff was unharmed. Whew!
Great time with our teams!

On Safari to the Buford Highway Farmers Market!

Then to the missions!

Absolutely torrential rains with thunder and lightning cancelled most of the sessions. Just too dangerous! Wow.

Came home to rest and work on admin duties.

Westside! Bike! 7.15.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:59 pm  

Got an email from my marketing mentor Seth Godin that I thought was particularly interesting this morning.

Studied Spanish and Swahili.

Went to Westside BC this morning. Pastor Ben spoke on the importance of tithing.

Went for a 13.46 mile bike ride this afternoon.

Always something beautiful to see.

Great to see my geese! Can you spot the white one? He’s been with that flock for several years now. He has a mate this year. I’ve been looking for different colored geese.

Interesting cloud formation.

I’ve kept Fasciata plants for over ten years. This is the first time I’ve ever see one flower again! Yeah!

After I rode my bike, I cleaned and refilled my hummingbird feeders. I only put out two these days. I’ve seen at least two hummingbirds: a male and a female. Wish they’d have little ones!

I just read that hummers can have three batches of eggs a year. I used to have SO many! Now I’m happy just to see a couple.
We had 1.5″ of rain in the last couple of days.

Admin duties now.

I’ll probably work on posting material for my Twitter feed. Need to work on adding the new email addresses to our newsletter list. That’s an ongoing job.

I like this bumper sticker.

Podcast! Girls! Shower! Correction!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:36 pm  

Studied Spanish and Swahili this morning.

Finished working on the shower. Earlier this Summer, I added more silicon to stop the leaking through the grout. I trimmed it up to make it look nice.

Recorded a new episode of Verbal Surgery called “Buckle Up!”
Then went to Walmart to buy groceries. It was one of the heaviest loads ever.

I’m using my new shopping bags rather than the Walmart plastic bags. Little greener!

Kathy and I watched the girls this afternoon for a few hours while Ashley and Miles had a date.

Always a blessing!
Kathy noticed that in the paperback version of my book some of the chapter page numbers were off. I corrected them and posted them to KDP/Amazon. The cool thing about this program is I can constantly add or change stuff to the book because they print one at a time. Groovy!

Admin duties now.

Humble! Kitab! Temple! ACX! Bike!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:39 pm  

Released a new episode of Verbal Surgery -574- “Bridges Not Walls.

Work towards unity not “US and Them!” Just click on the title and GROOVE!

Studied Spanish and Swahili this morning. I didn’t study languages yesterday, although I thought I did! Streak starts over. No big deal.

Had a great party with my kids instead!

Took our team from Humble, TX to the Hibachi Grill in Norcross. Super good. Kathy and the girls joined us there. Always fun to hang with them.
Then just around the corner to the Kitab Bookstore. It’s the largest Muslim bookstore in America.

Omar, the owner, gave gifts to every kid on the team.

Then took the team to visit the BAPS Hindu Temple in Lawrenceville. It’s a magnificent structure! Took around a million man hours to build. Over 34,000 pieces that fit together like Legos. Three kinds of stone including Italian marble, Turkish limestone and Indian sandstone. Took about a year and a half to build.

Said my goodbyes to the team. They went on to work at one of the missions then to the Braves game this evening.

I went home to work on the audio version of my book. I got the rest of the files from my audio engineer from Venezuela last night.

Nearly four and a half hours of fun!

Also uploaded an edited version of the cover that says that I’m the narrator.

Next step is quality control. My recording was very good, but not perfect. That’s why I needed an engineer to tweak it. He took out any background noise and got it ready for ACX which is the distribution arm of Amazon, Audible and iTunes.

In less than two weeks it will be ready for the public! The audio version is the way to go. Lots more fun when I read it for you!

Pretty exciting stuff!
Once that was complete, I focused on editing the videos I shot for out two teams this week.

I do all the editing with Videoshop on my iPhone 7+. It’s powerful software!
Worked on my shower. Cleaned up the silicon from the grout. Finished about a third of it. I have to take my time and make sure it looks good. I’m working with a big razor blade in a handle. Have to be super careful.
Then went for a 4.73 mile bike ride.

It was getting dark when I rode and looked like it was going to storm. I have become super conservative riding my bike. I used to ride like a bat out of hell. After my third wreck and one near deadly accident, I go way more slowly especially around corners and wherever there’s any chance of cars. Just makes sense. I also never ride if the roads are even slightly wet. Because of the possibility of storms I cut my ride short. Still fun and great exercise!

I thought these butterfly wings were cool.

Sent an email to the chairman of our board asking about a Spanish church that could work with a lady that we met at one of our missions this week.

Admin duties now.

I still need to send the final email to the teams with the photos and video as well as promo material this evening.

Put up most of the things for The Show, and brought my bubble bucket back home to get ready for next week.

My friend at El Rosario gave me a rosary for my birthday. Beautiful!

Then to the missions!

Gassed up my car on the way home.

Had a brief rest, then went to Cafe Istanbul for my 60th birthday party with my kids and grandkids! Kathy was too tired to come. I’ll have fun with her tomorrow!

I saw a guy who looked just like Frank Zappa there!

My friend Mustapha is the owner. He made it special for me!


Did some belly dancing!

Got a new shirt for my birthday!

Always something beautiful to see!

Looked like the cloud was missing the bottom. Weird.

Mixed up bubble solution for tomorrow.

Refilled my hummingbird feeders.

Also cleaned and refilled the bird baths. Put more food out for the birds and raccoons.

Contacted my audio engineer who’s working on the Audible version for Story Tim. Want to make sure that the credits are correct or I if I need to add something. I have Friday to make that happen.

I tried twice to beat 10 different levels of Duoling at the same time this morning. I’ll try again this evening.

Never seen this before. Ice in the urinal. What?

Westside! Podcast! Bike! 7.8.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:21 pm  

Studied Spanish and Swahili this morning.

Went to Westside BC this morning.

Pastor Ben spoke from James about doing your best and dealing with “STUFF.”

I like verse 17 in particular.

Transported and released squirrel #39.

Recorded a new podcast! Great one called “Darkest Light.”

I have six “in the can.” Right at my target goal of seven. I’ve been good using the mic and not getting too hoarse. So I’ve been able to record at least a couple every weekend.

Converted my sermon notes to tweets for Twitter. Uploaded about another 65.

Rode my bike 12.96 miles.

I only started Runkeeper when I was a little over half way through my ride. The mileage came from the exact same ride from August of last year!
I love crossing the bridge at the Yellow River.

Perfect weather. Astonishingly cool today.
Saw two raccoons at my feeders tonight. What a blessing.
I received my cover for the Audible version of my book Story Tim. Had a couple of small revisions he needs to make. Haven’t heard from my audio engineer yet.
Admin duties now. Big team tomorrow. Going to sleep early.
