Coming up in a year or so, a well known magician that has been involved as of late with theater projects will be directing a version of Shakespeare's The Tempest with the concept that Prospero is Harry Willard. This production will be done by one of the best known outdoor Shakespeare festivals in the world, and they might even tour it a bit under canvas.

I've always wanted to stage that play on a set that looks like a large ceramic vessel designed for holding hot water and Oolong leaves.

Pontiac???...I thought Watkins built em......

Ah, cmon Jim. A tempest in a teapot is something that creates a lot of turmoil, but is completely insignificant. Come to think of it, I know someone that also fits that description.

Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea?
Alice: Well, I haven't had any yet, so I can't very well take more.
March Hare: Ah, you mean you can't very well take less.
Mad Hatter: Yes. You can always take more than nothing.

This is getting steeped in controversy and this conversation is beginning to boil. Shall we not leave, and bag this topic. But rather continue and not get too steamed.

Bev's book is amazing.

Denny tells a really good story about something Bev said when Mike Caveney was doing his book.

He said, "Why would Mike write a book on Willard? I already wrote THE book on Willard."
