LECTURING!

LECTURING!

Wow! I had a great time at the North Wales Magic Circle! Despite waking up on the morning of the lecture with NO VOICE!  It was quite a worry actually, I thought I'm definitely not cancelling, but what if I can't speak?!  In the end, being silent all day (hard for me) and eating my own bodyweight in 'Fishermen's Friends' and Lozenges just got me through! :D To be honest, it's not often that I lecture, but a year or so back, I did one for a friend who asked that I did one at their local club, and from...

Borrowed Shuffled Deck?

Performing something with a regular deck at short notice is always a challenge, especially if you have just shuffled or borrowed the cards!
