John is a sweet guy and a wonderful magician. He went through some health problems a while back, and I'm glad to hear he's back on his feet.

John does a fabulous Linking Ring routine, with a sweet silent drop linking.

Hey Ben, if you see or speak with John, tell him I said hello. Haven't seen him in a dog's age.

Ditto, for me. Haven't seen John since he became ill. He was always one of the nicest guys to me at Tannen's - ok, he WAS the nicest guy to me at Tannen's when I would visit. Thanks for the good news. Opening a shop must mean his health has improved. That makes me happy for him. Send him my best wishes, please!

I'd have to disagree and say that I was the nicest demonstrator at Tannen's! In all seriousness John Blake is a great guy and Tannen's has definitely not been the same with out him.

I passed on all the warm wishes to John and he was very touched. John's at the shop everyday from 9am to 6pm if any of you would like to call and say HI. I know he'd love to hear from you all!
