It’s always been a special time of year for me .. the fall is just beautiful in Chicago. Â I can still remember my dad mowing the lawn with his shirt off. Â My brother would be planted on the couch watching the football game. Â Of course things were much simpler back then and time just keeps flying by. Â If only I could turn back the clock .. now that would be magic.
As I write .. it is the last Sunday in September. Â I have some stories to catch up on still .. and I will get to all the summer fun. Â I’ve also got a lot of cool stuff coming up and I wanted to fill you in on some of that too. Â First off .. I’ve been writing for an online magic publication called the New Tops. Â If you wonder over to Abbott’s Magic online you’ll find some very cool stuff. Â Not only is it a great source for information by some of the top professionals across the country .. Â you’ll find the best, hand-crafted magic props made right here in the USA. Â Check then out .. I can’t say enough good things about them.
For all my friends that have an iPod at their side .. I taped my very first Podcast interview. Â It will be online this Monday 09/28 and you can find it on iTunes in the Podcast section. Â Simply look up iTricks and you’ll you’ll here the latest news in the magic world. Â I’ve never done an interview on the computer .. it was interesting and I think you’ll enjoy it.
Rocktober is upon us and my calendar is filling up. Â Speaking of calendars .. I picked up a new desk calendar for next year. Â I still like writing my schedule down … so I can see it, on paper. Â I can’t tell you how many of my friends have been hounding me to get an iPhone so I’ll have it all at my fingertips. Â It is an amazing gadget .. and I just love Apple stuff but, Â do I really need it? Â To tell you the truth .. I don’t talk much on the phone anymore, and I don’t want to be bothered 24/7. Â I know it’s invaluable for travel .. but, I’m pretty much done for the year now. Â If you have any words of wisdom .. drop me a note, Â I’d love to hear from you.
Until next time ..
