Posted:Hey Pete, you would have met Stone on a Wednesday sometime. I don't think he comes to Sunday's due to work.
I am his protege (i'm sure he'd disagree) Or at least for the first few months of my spinning career. Wealth of knowledge.


Geez, I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

pete, we will have to catch up at Eddy gardens. I do cubs, and burn myself a lot wink



Hi ataxia, I hope you remember that statement when youre rich and famous. How's the juggling? I'm still trying, and I'll get to a Sunday night meet, one day soonish. Trust me! biggrin



Matty sells devil sticks and poi at St Andrews market and Concentrate has a stand there as well.



Does anyone, and Im thinking Bender, know the fire spinner who is selling leather gauntlets? So far the best Ive come up with is the S&M bondage shop Brunswick St (left side, Alexandra Pde end). They have wide leather gauntlets for $45 each, which is a bit rich. They also sell welded link chain in small sizes, but Im not sure about the strength, as well as whips and a whole lotta interesting leather stuff if you are looking for a new hobby ubbangel



Thanx for the info on Firesol newgabe. All I heard, was it comes from Qld and it was similar to Shelsol. Also wonders how much Firesol is per litre, and if Benders buys his wooden swords at happy high herbs wink

Posted:Definition of protege from dictionary.com:
One whose welfare, training, or career is promoted by an influential person.

Jo and Tyr got me some glow juggling balls a couple of weeks back, so i've been getting into juggling a bit more lately. Just joined a band which reherses on Wednesday nights, so I wont be able to make it to edinburgh indefinitely. (Not that I make it to Wednesdays anyway.)
