I've often tried during my life, but with the help of the books (Juggling for the complete klutz, for example), it's finally working. Quite fun, actually.

Years age we learned to juggle at Club Med . It was a lot of fun . That is a great gift .

My cat is young and doesn't care about food or snacks. Usually paws at the door and wants to go out which I interpret as out into the hallway of the apt. building to stare at the doors where other cats live. In the evening a couple of the cats come out into the hall and cat demands to go out to stare directly at them. Sometimes I try to substitute hugs for the outings; sometimes that is what cat wants. That can be a full day here in ER-land.

Went to a large church in Tampa tonight for their Christmas celebration. Over 400 people in choir, 80 plus in the orchastra, 60 plus dancers. I have never seen such a talanted group. And drove part way home with the windows down at 9pm. what a place to live.

P.S. I also put a slip of paper in each juggling book that said the first person to send me a video of him/her juggling three balls for more than 30 seconds gets $25.

I used rice and balloons. The video below shows the technique (check out others at youtube). I used 100 grams of rice for each ball. An improvement over the technique in the video is to use a funnel to put the 100 grams of rice in an empty water bottle, then blow up the balloon and put it over the top, then invert it. The rice flows quickly in to the balloon.

Except for the first balloon, trim the balloon before stretching it over the ball. I use all the same color balloons for each ball.

I used four balloons per ball. I ended up making 21. Here's the master at work:
