New Theme - Polar Bear Club
- - - -
I am happy to say it was a busy holiday season. I hope everyone had a great holiday and a Happy New Year. I did not have any ideas on what to use for a theme this month, but a relative from Wisconsin sent me a photo of the annual Polar Bear Club outing. These crazy people take a dip in to icy cold Lake Michigan January 1. With this idea in mind, I came up with the Polar Bear Club Member whose photo is located on the Kids Stuff front page. http://www.mbd2.com/kidsstuff.htm On the front page, I have added a Polar Bear in swimming shorts waiting for his turn to enter the lake. http://www.mbd2.com

Entertainer's Tip 9 - Electric Balloon Pumps and Airport Security
- - - -
On January 8, I was scheduled to fly to Louisville Kentucky for a one-day business promotion. I would leave Chicago Midway Airport on the 8th and return the following day. The problem I had was how to get my balloon pump through security (picture of electric pump http://www.mbd2.com/PumpElectric.htm ). I was flying out of Southwest Airlines, so I decided to call them to see what they would recommend. I talked to a gentlemen who looked up the regulations and read a paragraph about obtaining a Security Certificate, which I could obtain at the check-in-counter and use this to pass trough security.

I arrived at the Airport 2 hours early, expecting a hassle about the electric balloon pump. I approached the check-in-counter and informed the check-in-clerk that I was an entertainer and I had an electric pump, with two NiCad batteries enclosed in my case, and that I was going to carry this lounge on the plane. Could she provide me a Security Certificate so I can get through security? "You want a what?" said the check-in-clerk. I explained how I contacted the Airlines and what they had told me. The check-in-clerk call the supervisor for scanning over to see if they new what this Certificate was all about.

He explained that he has never heard of this Certificate that all you need to do is when you reach security, simply tell them that you are an entertainer, you have an electronic balloon pump and batteries in your bag and they will x-ray the bag. So on I went.

When I arrived at the security x-ray station, I informed the guard that I was an entertainer going to Kentucky and I had a balloon pump with batteries. She said okay, and simply x-rays the bag. I on the other hand had to go through the metal detector twice, get waved by the wand, and had to take off my shoes, because the alarms kept ringing. The Security guard did have to open my bag to see what was behind the pump, because the x-ray tech could get a good reading, but other than that I was through security with no problems.

On the way back to Chicago, I informed the guards again that it was a balloon pump. No problem, they simply x-rayed the bag, while I again sat in a chair and had the wand wave around me.

I did have balloon inside the pump just encase I had to demonstrate the pump. However, that was not needed. So if you're traveling with a balloon pump, just kindly tell security that you're an entertainer with a pump and you should have no problems.

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 has grown bigger, and bigger, and with 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.
