Portuguese! QM! VS! LIVE! Girls! Wreck!

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:38 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning! Otimo!

I had three raccoons and an opossum visit my feeders last night! Good to see the families together. I’ve missed them!

Released a new version of Verbal Surgery -506-“Just Show Up!” Awesome, practical advice to get your career super-charged!
Wrote two new chapters in my book, “Quantum Metaphors.” I love ’em both!
Went live on Facebook with the video version of my podcast released today!

Dropped off the financial report that Ashley prepares to my Treasurer.
Ashley came over to wash her clothes. GREAT to see all the girls together!
Little beauty!

Color of nature!

Had a near fatal bike ride. Went around a corner too fast. Oncoming car. Locked up my brakes and got thrown off at high speed. Car ran over my rear tire.

Biggest surprise to me is that the car didn’t even stop to see if I was hurt. I’m ok, just kinda beat up. Hardest on me psychologically. I’ve nearly been killed a number of times. Never gets easier. (I PROMISE I’ll be more careful, Mom!)
Took my bike to my repair guy to get worked on.
Got goodies for the block party tomorrow.

Took a long, hot bath to get the soreness out.
Admin duties now.
Looking forward to firing up Battlefront 2!

Portuguese! QM! Bike! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:48 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning. Cada dia!
Added a new chapter to my book Quantum Metaphors! This one is about getting stuck in my car and hunted by lions!
Went to the Post Office to mail some small gifts to friends in the UK and NYC.
Did some grocery shopping.
Picked up Battlefront 2 while I was at Walmart. UBER!
Also went to Pet Smart to pick up a new light bulb for my fish tank. I saw this truck in the parking lot when I was there. Dig it!
Rode my bike 13.36 miles. Would have gone further, but needed to get to the mission on time.

I saw this mushroom on my ride. I watched a super interesting documentary on mushrooms on Netflix yesterday.

I helped the kids at the mission with their homework. Can you figure this out?

Penelope likes markers. Especially the taste!

I love her SO MUCH!

Another set of fantastic sun shots!

I started watching this series on Netflix. Love it!

I was thinking about working with my friends the Head Hackers tonight.

And of course my slice of brain.

Portuguese! QM! Tires! Step! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:20 pm  

This morning I studied Portuguese! Por que nao? I’m still jet lagging. Started work around 6:00am!
Doesn’t 215 days sound like a lot?

Found the phone number for my Yard guys. Called them to come blow off my roof. Hope they’ll call me back soon.

Wrote another chapter in my book Quantum Metaphors. I told the story of being chased around by a baby elephant. Yow!
Kathy and I took Jesse’s car over to my tire guys last night. They called me this morning to say that the tires were fixed! One had a screw in it. They other had a tiny sliver of metal. Glad to get that squared away!

These guys do GREAT work!

I worked on the step getting into my house today. I had to move the main step out because it wasn’t flat. I filled the space with a series of bricks and covered it with a rug. It’s safe again!

Went to the mission to work with the kids! Everly is so beautiful!

Management is getting ready to resurface the parking lot at Azalea Place.

Went to FBC Doraville to check on the mail. Nothing there today.

Ashley and the baby are so beautiful!

Penelope still has a little cold, but she’s better! She loves playing in the sand!

Helped the kids at the mission with their homework.

Beautiful sunset!

Ate Mexican food from Taco Veloz with Ashley and her family. What a blessing.
Came home in bad traffic. Mr. Google took me a way I’d never seen before! Always an adventure!

Portuguese! Video! Bike! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:39 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning! Otimo!
Edited and uploaded two different videos for my friend Freddy Jacquin.
I thought they turned out great! I have another friend of mine who will add the graphics.
Went for a 9.75 mile bike ride with my friend John Cook.
We took a tour of the beltline around Atlanta. It was a fun ride. Definitely easier than my normal bike ride.
We ate at Yallas at the Krog St. market. It was one of the best meals I’d had in a while! Delicious Middle Eastern flavors.

Released a new edition of Verbal Surgery -505-“LubriCAN!” on how to have better relationships.
Just click on the title and GROOVE!
Helped the kids at the mission.
Came home and pumped up two tires on Jesse’s car and took it to my tire guy to look at tomorrow morning.

I saw this sign on the way to the tire place.

Who wants to pay to wash their own dog? That’s just dumb.

Going to try and finish editing the promo videos for Freddy Jacquin.

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:44 pm  

This morning Kathy and I went to Rockbridge Baptist Church.

My good friend Carl Barrington preaching. He had a terrific message on evangelism.
Sent my monthly travel log to Ashley.
I’m working on a new book!

UK 2017!

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:35 pm  

Just got back from the UK! A fantastic time was had!

I had hoped to see the Northern Lights, but bad weather kept us from going far enough north. Bahd luck.
I continued to study Portuguese during my trip. It paid off with being able to speak to my new Brazilian friends!
It was wonderful to see old friends like my buddy Marcus Lewis!
Anthony and Marcus took me to Brick Lane to see the cool graffiti.

I also got to meet one of my mentors Freddy Jacquin who is Anthony’s dad!

They let me participate on the Hypnotherapy diploma course. Cool!

The Head Hackers were reunited!

This year I used the buses a lot. Mr. Google helped me figure them totally out!

It was great to be able to study with Anthony and his Dad!

Always something cool to shoot.

One night, we went bowling!

More Brick Lane coolness.

Banksy. My favorite modern artist.

I had so much fun hanging out with my best friend, Anthony Jacquin.

I stayed my first night in London at the Dictionary Hostel.

The next night I stayed at an apartment that Anthony had rented.

Had a blast getting to know the Brazilian team! Loved them!

Anthony took us on walkabout to see the Thames and London at night.
It was beautiful!

I got up early one morning to go and see the other major part of the Head Hacker family, Kev Sheldrake! Great to meet up with buddies!

My main reason for going to the UK was for the UK Hypnosis Convention. I was one of the speakers. Anthony, Freddy Jacquin and Bob Burns were part of the PreConvention classes. They let me take their classes as well. I learned a lot!

Bob is in my elite circle of best friends. I adore him and his Scottish humor!

Terrific gang of talented and super funny people.

James Brown is one of the best magicians on the planet and an amazing hypnotist.

Alberto did a terrific presentation on using social media to build your business.

I loved the Brasileros so much!

Gary Turner was my mentor for losing weight.

Some of the top hypnotists in the world were at this conference.

I loved getting to know Freddy Jacquin better.

He did a great job at the conference!

My best friend, Anthony Jacquin nailed it!

I was the final presenter and completely blew them away!

Great to meet Cesar! He will be my translator in Brazil.

One of the conference attendees had a big board fall on her. I was glad I was there to help!

After the conference, we went back to Derby. I love the English countryside!

It’s great to have good friends!

Then back to the ATL!

Came home and got right back into my routine of riding my bike!

Penelope spent the night with me Friday night!

Went on Safari to the International Village to pick up a few little things for a friend of mine.

One of my best trips ever! GREAT to be back home with my loved ones!

Logistics! Portuguese! Westside! Shopping! Prep!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:48 pm  

Worked on figuring out the underground, buses and trains in the UK for my trip.

Studied Portuguese early this morning.
Almost to 200 days!
Went to Westside BC this morning! I played the djembe. I was careful with my hand! Also sang a special with the choir.
Pastor Ben spoke on the Passover. We had the Lord’s Supper this morning.
Gassed up my car in preparation for me leaving town.
Did the grocery shopping.
Checked into my flight.
Packed my bags and weighed in. 48lbs. Should be fine. Literally half of my bag is gifts! I just hope that my bag makes it to Birmingham, UK with me! I have to head straight on up to London by train to catch up with my friend Anthony Jacquin who is doing a seminar there.
I didn’t sleep well last night. My mind gets going too fast with things I need to figure out. It always works out, silly brain!

Podcast! Prep! 10.21.17

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:07 pm  

Recorded a new podcast this morning! “Shiny Dirt” is super groovy! Also went live talking about it on Facebook. Fun!

Ashley was commenting while I was going live today. She told me Penelope really liked it.

Over 90,000 downloads now!

Reviewing in Duolingo, moving at about five times my normal speed. Also spent some time studying verbs.

While I was there, I noticed these clear “zipper clouds.”

The were very low. Easy to see the concentrations.

I got a new adaptor for my iPhone 7+. With this I can listen and charge my phone at the same time.

Cleaned my fish tank. They should be fine until I get back on November 6th now. Jesse will continue to feed them. I also have some “weekend blocks” to put with the. They also eat the algae on the back of the tank. I purposely don’t clean that area specifically for that reason.
Watered 1/3 of my plants. Ran out of distilled water. I’ll get more after church.
I had a fun message from my Brazilian friends Marcella and Flavio today. It’s cool to be able to understand what they say. I’d say I’m at around 80% comprehension if they speak slowly.

Before I take a trip, I photograph the days in the Bible when I’ll be gone. Books are heavy to haul around.

Doing research on where I’m staying my first night in London. A hostel called the “Dictionary.” I’ll be on a bunk bed with 16 other people. Not in the same bed! Three nights I’ll be at the hostel Another three nights I’ll be in a AirBnB which is within short walking distance where the Hilton is where the conference will be held. Didn’t want to have to hassle with local transport late.

I’ll use Google maps Street view and memorize all the land marks I’ll need when I’m on foot to and from the underground and the train station.

That strategy worked great for my trip to Israel. I recognized all the land marks as if I had already been there!

Living in the future, baby!

Podcast! LIVE! Yard Work! Bike!

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:44 pm  

Recorded “Knot Able” this morning! How we learn and remember is important to remember!

Released Verbal Surgery -498- “Guide LIONS.” Excellent edition focusing on the rules that keep us in line.

Also went LIVE on Facebook with a video version of “Guide LIONS.”

After lunch, I worked on the yard. Mowed the front and blew the driveway and deck.

Looks better!
The Verbal Surgeon Cabin.
Pushed that lawnmower .50 miles.
Went for a 15.50 mile bike ride.
I already have six episodes ready after I get back from the UK. Astonishing how much I love to hear myself talk.
