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?

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.
