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...
