New, Email Program
- - - -
Since I’m always striving to do better. I have developed an email database program that will automatically add, email, and delete user from the Update Notices. You will now notice that your name, the date and time you joined the mbd2.com Update Notice program appear at the top of the Update Notice.

I hope that this will help people remember that they willingly subscribed to this program. Secondly, on the bottom of the Update Notice is a removal url that will automatically remove you from this mailing list. Do not do this unless you do not what to receive these update notices.

I hope to write a program that will allow users to change their email, but until then I will still have to do it manually.

Save $1.00 “Of Clouds and Balloons”

I have been previewing a book that deals with the business of balloon entertainer. The book is by Jimmy Leo a seasoned professional entertainer. The book I feel has some good material for beginners and good for the veteran twister to retool some of there marketing tricks.

If you preorder the book, I will take a dollar of the price of the book. I will be putting the book in the preview section tomorrow 10/2/02. If you order the 10/3 - 10/5, I will give you $1.00 off. Again, I will be posting the preview tomorrow so stop in and check it out.

Pooh’s Beehive
- - - -
Okay it is easy to do. So simple I decided not to do photos but give you written instructions instead.

To start, you need 1 350 Orange balloon and 7 260Q balloons.

Inflate 7 260 balloons leaving a 5 inch tail. Inflate the 350 balloon halfway. Push the air to the end of the 350. This is the top of the Bee Hive. Take one of the 260 balloons and wrap it around the 350 balloon (opposite end of the nozzle). Wrap the nozzle around the 260 balloon; Thus, creating a loop. This makes one 260-balloon ring wrapped around 350 balloons. Remove the excess 260 balloon. Take the second balloon and wrap it around the 350, but make it 1” bigger then the first balloon. The balloon will slowly get wider or bigger. The trick is to use Rubber Cement to glue each ring together. Simple smear on a light amount of rubber cement round the second ring and press it up against the first ring. This process in continued for 2 more rings. Rings 3 & 4, rings 4 and 5 are the same size, ring 6 and 7 are smaller.

**** NOTE **** Once you know how big the bee hive is going to be, you can tie off the 350 making it smaller and removing the excess balloon.

When using Rubber Cement, be careful not to apply to much. Too much cement will eat through the balloon. Appling multiple lays may break the balloon. Try to make one even THIN layer of cement. It will take practice, but it will be worth it in the end.

Entertainers Tip 3
- - - -
The key is practice, practice, practice. Does this mean I have to fill the house up with teddy bears and puppy dogs? Yes! In the beginning, we all have to make hundreds of teddy bears before we get the proportions correctly. “But I’ve been twisting for some time now; I don’t need to practice anymore.” Yes you do! The practice is a very different type of practice. When we first started out, we would sit in front of the TV making teddy bears until they all started to look alike. Now we practice on the job. “WHAT!! ON THE JOB!” Yes!

When I learn a new animal or character, I tell the customer that I have a new balloon creation and would they be interested in that, or do they have something the want instead? 80% of the time the will ask for the new creation. This gives me practice, if the balloon breaks – oh well, its’ new, and lastly - others will see that balloon and request it. Thus giving me more practice.

This is how I started doing the Alien. Now I can do them in my sleep.

Update Achieve Notices

Boy, have things changed. When I first started sending out update notices, it was just a couple of line saying “hey, new pictures at...”, but this site is grown bigger, and bigger, with more cooler stuff. As a result, the two-line email has now gone to the ezine format. I have now started archive these messages and will have a link off the update notice form and at the end of the email.
