Sankey-Skutt Sessions DVD

OK - I have been playing around with magic for a little over a year now. I really ant to get into doing what I call "hoakey" trciks like the rings and the balls and cups routines. I want to get into doing some illusions that have some meat to them and can really grab the attention of the spectator. I want to do something for a crowd that can be examined, where they can be fairly close to me or I don't have to be sitting at a specific table or performing far away on stage. The magic that they call "in your face" magic.

I don't know how I was out of the loop on this guy, but a friend of mine told me about a magician named Mike Skutt that has produced a DVD with one of my favorite magicians, Jay Sankey. This DVD called "The Sankey/Scutt" sessions is available on a lot of sites - just google the name and you should have your choice of your favorite online magic retailers. After reading a couple of reviews and looking at the types of illusions included on this DVD, I think it is exactly what I am looking for. I just hope it is not too advanced for me - but I am ordering it today!!!

Already 4 weeks!

I can't believe that in 2 days my 2nd child will be 4 weeks old, and Saturday he'll be exactly one month old. It seems like we waited forever for him to get here. Now that he's here, it seems to be flying by.

It was extremely hard for me to go back to work last week. Not necessarily because of the work, but because I was able to spend so much time with my family. There's just something about that bonding time with your child that means so much. I know that any parent will agree that holding your newborn and watching them sleep gives you so much joy!

We went out Saturday night to the Lighthouse restaurant for my mom's birthday. After church yesterday, we left to go to LaGrange and had a get together at my mother-in-law's home for my wife's grandfather. We spent the night and this morning the wife and her grandmother are off shopping with the baby. I am here now with big brother and we are going to have lunch soon. I think we are going to meet up with my wife's dad sometime today.
