History of mbd2.com – Host
of mbd2.com 10 year bash
In 1988 DEO Consulting, Inc. was born.
Its owner, Dale E. Obrochta was a professional entertainer
who worked at a local trick shop and entertained around the
Chicago land area. On January 21, 1997 Dale developed mbd2.com.
The site originally was going to be co-hosted by Dale and a
DJ company. This lasted little over three months when the DJ
company decided the Internet was not for them. But Dale kept
the URL... mbd2.com.
In 1998 Dale opened a Yahoo! balloon
forum and in 2000 mbd2.com started it first e-commerce site.
In 2002 the mbd2.com forum was started. As each year goes by
new products and services are developed and incorporated into
the mbd2.com site.Our goal is simple; provide good products
along with good services. We do our best to make your shopping
experience enjoyable and providing the best in balloon services.
Biography: Magical Balloon-dude
If you ask Dale where he learned his skill,
he will tell you from a bunch of twisted people. While attending
college he met a group of professional entertainers, which met
every Monday and would practice in the gym. Always wanting to
learn how to juggle, Dale joined this merry group.
This Illinois Entertainer learned from world-class jugglers,
unicyclist, magicians, clowns, balloonists, fire-eaters, theatrical
entertainers, and vaudevillians. I did not realize at the time
how lucky I was to be working with such talented people and
the skills and techniques that were freely given to me.
I have used all my entertainment skills over the years, but
have decided I would rather be a Master of one form of entertainment,
than be average in many. So a Master Balloonist I am, and a
solid multi-talent entertainer when needed.
