World Juggling Day on Jeopardy...

I was just watching Jeopardy "Kids" version on TV with my daughters, and the question to the answer was "World Juggling Day". Pretty cool. I forget exactly how the answer was worded, but the category was something like "World Celebrations" and the answer was something like "what "World" Day is in mid June and might be celebrated by throwing three torches in the air, or something to that effect.

The Juggler of Carlsbad

The writer does not bother to learn or find out the juggler's name, but seems to enjoy what he does. Anyone know who he is writing about?

Juggling Museum?

Here is a related story to that last post about Ken Benge, here is a newspaper story about a possible Juggling History Museum being considered in Beecher, Illinois that would house his personal collection.

Ken Benge

Ken wrote "The Art of Juggling", which was a key book for me, as a developing juggler. It was the first juggling book that I read and I still reference it today whenever I perform my Library program.

New World Record set with Paddle Balls

Ok, I know it is not juggling, but it is pretty cool news. Besides, it is my blog, and if I cannot use it for a little shameless self promotion, that what good is it?
The Big News Is!!!!
I returned just last week from setting the very first Guinness World Record with Paddle Balls. I set the record for the most Paddle Balls done by one person, by doing 7. I have done 8 and 9, but wanted to save a little room to "grow the record" at a later date. It was a great experience and I am very happy to be the first one to put a Paddle Ball record into the Guinness World Record Database. I have a sense that it will be just the first of many. I will attach a few links to video of this event. I will also attach a link to The Paddle Ball King's website, where you can go to the "Blog" section and read the whole story, if you feel so inclined.

Rastelli's Grave...

I recently had a chance to make the pilgrimage to "jugglers' mecca", the great Enrico Rastelli's grave in the village of Bergamo Italy. I was in Milan setting a Guinness World Record for the most Paddle Balls done by one person, and had the opportunity to make a side trip with fellow juggler, and friend, Aaron Greg. I will post some photos of our visit...

The Tumescos

I came across this vintage promo shot of "The Tumescos", Michael Moschen and Penn Jillette, when they were but young pups in the variety business. They have both gone on to achieve great heights in this biz since then. Very fun image. It received a lot of interest when I posted it on my Facebook page, so I figured it worthy of posting here, as well.
