Hey Mark,

I saw you this year at the Twist and Jam in Nashville and enjoyed your work. While I didn't buy your video while I was there, I gave in and purchaed it about a week ago. Great, usable stuff.

I'm jealous, I wish I could be with you guys tomorrow evening. I made your dolphin, shark and mermade tonight at my regular Monday night gig. The kids loved them. I wish we were closer. A fellow twister and I are planning to host Don Cauldwell when he comes to Little Rock, AR later this year. I'd be honored to do the same for you. When you are ready.

May the God of Large Bookings and adoration be with you.

Sincerely,

Derrick Rose...

I've started to save up about a month ago, to be able to go to your course, and the Phoenix balloon jam, in, let's say, about two years ^^. Do you think you'll still be doing the course?

I am a little confused....

This is a weekly balloon get together, where people share ideas and learn. Hardly worth flying in from Belgium for.

I would suggest going to Millennium Jam http://www.millenniumjam.com/ It is this week June 12th 13th & 14th in Belgium.

I have taught classes at Twist & Shout which is in February. February 20 - 24, 2008 this year in Boston Mass.
http://www.balloonconvention.com/

I do have a DVD for sale.

Hi Mark,
When we can find you on the Millenium Jam ? :P
Message: Posted by: legnakcor (Jun 7, 2007 12:05PM)
Yeah, I know, unfortunately I've still got school exams, so I can't go to the millenuim jam :(:(
Well, my plans are, save up enough money (by magic and balloon shows etc) to go to America and go to the most possible balloon conventions. (In my wildest dreams) I'd be visiting Florida as well.. oh, you never know, maybe that will happen.

No No I am not going this year!! I do know Niko and Guido and would love the opportunity to teach there too.
(Hint hint wink wink)

I am thinking about a lecture tour this fall or winter in England. Still working out the finances.

FINE ....

The bill is in the post....... I idnt get paid on Saturday (but it was a hcarity event ... didn't make any balloons so you owe me 0% of nothing ... I owe you 20% of nothinh). Yesterday ... I spent £52 on balloons (not including bag, pump paint etc etc) and got £50 .... the cheque for 20P (is that about $10 by todays exchange rate? or is the $ not hat stroing now). Hold on how come you got money out of me .... I done loads of advertising for you! :) And I was down minimum of £2

Oh by the way I did make contact with a local magican who thinks his club nmay be interested in a lecture ... I will PM you regarding details etc.

Hey why did so many of my balloons burst? Was it just my dry skin on my finger tips or could it be someting else as well? (before you ask NO I was not coating my hands in "goo gone")

We really need to talk marketing...

If you have dry rough skin, might I suggest a good hand cream an hour or so before performing. Also keep a nail file handy and keep you nail short and rounded. I have used corn huskers lotion and bag balm these are farmer like products found in country stores and Pharmacies.
