Re: Heard some exciting news ...

Like everything else these days, that which is supposed to be simple and straightforward is not. It turned out that a whole bunch of the files we were sent were problematic and had to be rescanned.

Re: I Just Had a Root Canal: How's YOUR Day Going?

This specialist (all he does is root canals) uses blue dental dam. You can't use it for the trick because it leaves a bluish shadow over the coin.

So he had 50 copies made with only the first signature (32 pages) printed. The rest of the pages were blank. When I reprinted Greater Magic, I did an homage expurgated...

You don't need a bottle, cork, or anything else to set the coin up. Balance the coin on your second or third fingertip and stretch the damn out with the thumbs and fingers of both hands. Your finger pushes the coin upward. That's how I've done it for 50 years.
