Podcast! Rain! Bike! Email! 4.4.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:14 pm  

May the FOURTH be with you! Woot!


Brain Training!

I’ve started subscribing to Dulingo PLUS. It lets me test out of each of the categories which lets me make much faster progress in the lower levels. Duolingo just added nearly 60 start from zero levels which are easy for me. So instead of having to do four separate lessons I do one test and move onto the next material.

Getting ready for my trip to Toronto! I leave on Thursday. Woot! I’m going to a conference where Anthony Jacquin and his dad Freddy will be teaching. It’ll be very informative and a lot of fun. Anthony is my best friend. We stay in regular contact.

I recorded a new episode of Verbal Surgery called “Inquiriam.” Asking questions is an important skill!

While I was at my recording spot it just poured down!

Finished reading What Doesn’t Kill Us by Scott Carney. It’s based on the “Iceman” Wim Hof. I found it absolutely fascinating! I took a short break from writing this blog to search Scott’s contact info. Just sent him an email. I like to reach out to people when I like their work!

I’m fascinated by my birthday. July 12th has MANY famous people’s start! Julius Caesar is one! Whenever I get to a museum that has a section on Rome, I always look for everything I can about him. Here is a 3D picture based on his sculptures and paintings. Pretty cool!

As I mentioned earlier, I’m on Safari to Toronto on Thursday. Part of my research is the weather. I thought it was interesting all the places that I’ve been that I keep track of.

Went for a 15.03 mile bike ride. It’s starting to warm up. I got pretty sweaty!

I stopped at the park to refill my water bottle. A small shaft of sunlight was lighting up the water meter. Everything else was in complete shade. It reminded me of churches where at certain times of the year a picture or holy place will be lit up.

Tremendous rainstorm, but didn’t generate that much water, less than 1/2″.

I was pretty surprised how fast the roads dried up. Glad I got my exercise in!
After I got home, I took my bike rack off my car and also pumped up the tires on my bike. The tires were about twenty pounds low. My guess is I didn’t really look at what the PSI rating was on the tires, I just squeezed them! They are rated from 40-65 PSI. I filled them both to 50 PSI.

Got a shower (still doing cold showers! It’ll be a month on Friday. I’ve gotten to really enjoy them. Crazy, eh?) then worked on an email to my subscriber list. The last month, I’ve started to really accelerate that. One week is my newsletter. This week is Ashley’s newsletter. Next week will be a couple of links to my podcast, Verbal Surgery, and the last week will be a chapter from my new book, Story Tim. I have over 900 people on that list.
