Español! Grandgirls! 3.20.23

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:19 pm  

I compete against 120 million other learners on Duolingo. There are 19 languages taught. The most popular is American English and Spanish. I am in the league with the best of the best learners. I feel like today was a big deal for me to come in 1st place in the main tournament, and also to have been in the top three 50 times. That’s amazing to me.


Just keep walking!


Cold! But warming trend coming.

Ordered a new chair. My other office chair is completely broken. The back is nearly horizontal. That’s not zesty.

I thought this was interesting.

Good talk with Mom. Always lively and loving.

Talked with my health insurance guy about some challenges we may be facing in the future. Who doesn’t have challenges?

I called to set up an appointment with Dr. Hoddeson. Jessi hasn’t been breathing as well as she had been.

Gassed up my car and checked the oil. I’ll probably need to add a little more oil on the next fill up.


Had an in depth chat with Tom Halsey, our new tax guy. He’s still trying to figure out our taxes. We had some curve balls thrown our way. Could make us end up paying money. I almost always get about $4000 back. That’s 4 with three 0s.

Hopefully, I won’t end up paying too much money.

Love my girls!

Taught the girls how to walk with a book on their heads.

Listened to radio from Spain.

Helped the kids at the mission. They are all super uptight about the Milestone test.

Went by my office to check the mail.

Little over .5″ of rain yesterday.

Interesting competition so far. It’s funny to think about these language nerds all over the world.
