Hearts a plentiful is the mbd2.com website. Yes, it’s Valentines in February, so red hearts are the theme. I have updated the main page, kids stuff, the gallery, and the mbd2.com balloon jam forum, plus carried this theme into the balloon jam calendar.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Upgrade, Forum – Balloon Jam Counter/10 Newest Post
- - - -
* Forum Upgrade *
The upgrades to the mbd2.com forum are now complete. I have upgraded the forum form version 7.01 through 7.7. The new improvements have decreased load time, improved security, and have added some internal enhancements.

I fixed the poll bars to show colored bars, along with fixing the upload pictures button. One problem does exist in the watch topic, which I have not found the code reference, but if you click on the mbd2.com forum link, it takes you to an old test site. I just have to find the code, quick fix, but low priority.

* Balloon Jam Counter *
I have also improved the Balloon Jam Calendar layout. The new layout has a bigger balloon jam count number, which makes it easier to read. I am considering adding another feature to the calendar, which would show future balloon jams, ie jams that happen next month. What are your thoughts about this improvement, needed or not? http://www.mbd2.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=258&PN=1&TPN=1

* 10 Newest Post *
Another improvement to the forum has been a modification to the 10 Newest Post. Previously the list would only have a link to the topic, now I have added a mouse over effect that will display who posted the message. This way, you can quickly check out who posted the messaged, prior to clicking on the topic. http://www.mbd2.com/forum

New 5” Clown Heads
- - - -
Exclusive 5" white clown face on Qualatex balloons. Magical Balloon-dude Dale designed the clown face. The Clown Head was designed to allow the entertainer to simply color the face, no drawing required!

Expand your creativity, what can you do with this clown head?

Here are a couple examples of the clown face in action.

New Beginners Pump
- - - -
If you have never used an electronic pump then the Master Blaster is a good place to start. Has some noise, not excessively loud (about average pump sound), weight is average 7 lbs, designed for table use not wearing, will inflate enough balloons for an average birthday party easily. Over all a good starter pump, affordable, average pump strength, and extremely competitively priced.

- - - -
Have you been shocking people lately? Literally, have you been giving electric shocks when giving out a balloon? Well here are a couple of tricks to avoid shocking your audience.

Clothing, polyester and rayon are nice shiny clothing, but in a dry air environment can cause tremendous static electricity buildup. Use Static Guard and spray your clothing and balloon bag. DO NOT SPRAY BALLOONS! This is a chemical you don’t what to put in your mouth!

Cotton clothing, in my experience produces the lowest electrical buildup, but most restaurants and halls have nylon carpeting, which helps produce static electricity. Thus wearing cotton clothes doesn’t solve the problem totally. Spraying your clothes with Static Guard reduces static buildup from the carpeting. Not sure how this stuff works, but it does.

Static Sheets – Right now if you were to look in my balloon bag, in between the columns of balloons you would find two Static Sheets. These static sheets are the same sheets you use in a laundry dryer. Because the air is so dry in January through February, I place a Static Sheet in my balloon bag. The sheet helps reduce the static buildup. I make sure the sheets are not near the nozzle of the balloons. I use the Twist’em Up deluxe bag and have all my balloons standing vertically, nozzle up. Again, this is a chemical sheet and I would not recommend you eating the chemicals.

Static Guard and laundry dryer static sheets can be purchased at your local drug store.

Boy, have things changed.

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.
