Well, I need to know hours most importantly.

I'm thinking I could maybe block off some time gratis on 7/05 and 7/07, if I could get 7/06 paid for. Things are booking up though, so a commitment may need to happen soon. I do still have that weekend open ATM.

Normally I charge $75 an hour for the room, but I could do $65. Or if it's needed for the whole day and evening, we could come up with a flat rate for the day. Then I could "throw in"  :D some time on Friday and Sunday.

Mi hermano y cuñada estaban viendo un programa muy popular de la televisión uruguaya ("En Foco") cuando, durante una entrevista a un fabricante artesanal de trompos, pusieron segmentos de mis rutinas en Tokio y Shanghai.  :o Al artesano Luis Palavecino lo conocí en persona hace poco más de dos años en un mercado de pulgas de Montevideo (donde filmaron la escena del lanzamiento al final del video).

Did anybody else ever get any of these?  Did anyone else ever get a chance to try them?  I am wondering if those prototypes from Don are in my garage?

I would like to order some, is the PM working? I have tried to msg MrYo a coulple times, but I don't see where the msg. has gone out
in my outgoing msg. folder??
It only saves a copy of the sent message if you click the box before you send.  Personally, I think it should save by default.

Stunning piece! Original artist?

He is Carlo Finelli, a sculptor who lived two centuries ago.
The sculpture is "Le ore danzanti".   "Ore" are mythological figures, doughters of Zeus, "danzanti" means "dancing", so, yes, they are moving.
Some parts are difficult to cast but there are techniques and materials, (soft silicon), which help to overcome the difficulties.

Got out a box yesterday that says "girogiro" on it.  It says it is from Italy and is a pen top.  Looks like I have eight or so of them.  The problem is, none of the pens work anymore.  The ink must be old or it simply dried up.  I will see if I can find replacement cartridges tomorrow.

I also have been having fun with Don's mazes where he challenges you to finger spin a top and then guide it through a maze.  He must have a half dozen different designs including a couple for golf, one for Easter and one that is shaped like a Christmas tree for that time of the year!!!  He is so clever.

Detail of the top...

Now that you have a top carrying a high-contrast pattern, watch it spin under a variable-speed strobe light. The strobe will freeze the rest pattern at some flashing rates and create new virtual patterns at others.

By fine-tuning the flashing rate, these speed-dependent virtual patterns can be frozen as well. Some are quite unexpected.
