Michael will be giving a very special Topit Seminar in Zurich this summer. The seminar will include a new magic curriculum he has developed too! If you are in Europe and would like to attend, Facebook us and let us know! It will be in August.

Magic Castle Fire Sale

We bought the panel you see in this photo at the Magic Castle Fire Sale. After the fire on Halloween, there were some things that didn't find their way back into the Castle. This is heavy wood panel that for decades separated the dining room from the hall leading to the Palace of Mystery. Milt Larsen autographed it for us. Maybe we'll use it as a headboard...

Easter Sunrise

A tradition with our neighborhood is to take a boat out before sunrise on Easter morning, and watch the First Baptist Church Sunrise Service from the lake with close friends. We take coffee, fruit, and breakfast bagels. This was the view this year on Lake Down. It is so beautiful and peaceful.

Mardi Gras Float Riders

Every year we ride in the Mardi Gras parade at Universal Studios. This float was a little scary! Called "Earth, Wind and Fire" - it made cackle sounds and shot steam and confetti every few minutes. The hard part of the job is grabbing handfuls of bead necklaces and trying not to tangle them. I wasn't so good at aiming, I think I hit about 10 people in the face! Oops

Big Time Rush

I took Savannah and her friends to see "Big Time Rush" concert last night. Wow, what a big time rush. Those boys can sing and dance!  Imagine 10,000 11 year old girls screaming as loud as possible! LOL

Limo to Houdini's Mansion
My mom and I visited LA for a week to attending the memorial for John Daniel. My mom knew John since she was a 13 year old girl. While it was a sad occasion for us, it was wonderful to see Cathy Daniel, and all our other friends at the Magic Castle. One of the most memorable things to happen was being invited by Erika Larsen to make a visit to the Houdini Mansion. The mansion was purchased recently by a fascinating man from Chile (I know him only as Jose). We are pictured here riding up Laurel Canyon in his limo. He gave us the grand tour. Fortunately, Houdini Expert Patrick Culliton was with us too, so we had every question answered!

The local magic guys put together a great show at Sleuths - a mystery theater in the tourist area of Orlando this month. Michael was the headliner, and commented after how much he enjoyed it. Every city needs a little "Palace of Mystery" - don't you think?
