Just a little note to let my friends at the Café know what's been going on. Normally, I would post this elsewhere on the site, but I think I will reach more interested parties in this section of the Café than anywhere else.

First off, I'm doing fine. I've gotten several e-mails from friends here wondering what was going on with me. The Cups and Balls Museum web site is down for the next few weeks. I had an attack from someone who sends malware to people's sites, and my ISP shut my web sites down. I have a friend working on getting it running again. Please give me a few months.

I had a quadruple bypass in October, followed by a couple of surgical procedures common to old men. I did not have a heart attack, but I had four blockages. I'm doing fine now, not only with the bypasses, but also with the other surgery. I did suffer some neurological damage in my left forearm, which has slowed down my guitar, banjo and accordion playing, as well as my sleight of hand. But it's coming back.

If you have questions about the cup collection, send me an e-mail or contact me via facebook. My private messages are still closed off on the Café, but if you do a little detective work, you can find my e-mail address.

Anyway, thanks to all who have asked.

I have wondered.
And I will soon be part of the open heart club as I am about to do a valve replacement. I would like to hear more about your experience but soon I will have my own. Glad to hear you are doing OK. It gives me hope.

On a magic note, I am planning on some new cup and ball books. I have had my share of internet problems. It can drive one nuts. I have fallen back to just selling books via amazon dot com, print on demand. I feel obligated to make my material available to those that desire it. With amazon or createspace, the books are always there. As a business person, I feel the customer comes first. I wonder if you have considered publishing a full color work on the museum?
Magic Al. Say it fast and it is magical.

Hi Bill! I am glad your health is improving, my friend! Us old guys...ain't getting any easier! But ya know...this MALware stuff...there IS no excuse! Why on earth would ANY human being do this to a person they don't even know!!! It boggles me. There IS a special place in Hell for people who do things like that. Plain vandalism. For NO reason! The loss...MONTHS! To a guy like Bill? That's the worst part. GOOD people are hurt by it! Rankles me to the CORE!
