Quote from: "Dave"
It's difficult to see all publications on each artist and when I saw you at Grahams care and share (which I got a lot from and enjoyed meeting you) you had loads of books I hadn't seen before, I was wondering if you could list them?
Congratulations to Kevin Dewey look forward to seeing his lecture sometime.

Not all of my 28 books are on balloons, so I'll just list the balloon ones.  They all start with Dewey's so I'll leave off that part.
New Balloon Animals
Basic Balloon Sculpturing Course
Balloon & Clown Notebook
Gospel Balloon Routines #1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
Rubber Rascals
Mammoth Multiple Balloons
Extra Easy Balloons
Amusing Rubber Antics  (this one was an acrostic for DARA, my daughter.)
Zany Balloons
Celebrity Balloons
Balloon Anomalies
Wild Balloon Hats

You can see all of them on my web page.

I'm not sure if Kevin will keep doing balloons, because he is beginning to like magic these days.

Hi Ralph,

this is so exciting. I started doing Gospel clowning at a kids church we were running at the time because I found out about it through both you & another book. I've stopped that now. I have to say that your routines were really good.

Now I go round schools presenting gospel in a unique way (I won't go into it here) I saw someone do the jonah & whale story using a balloon I don't know if it was yours. But it blew me away. Now I'm interested in doing it with balloons.

Ok, ok, here's the  question. Can I get your gospel DVD's (I prefer to books) over here in UK. Also I would like to attend one of your jams (not jelly  :roll: ) how do I find out about when & where you are going to be next?

Hello Ralph,
It was nice to meet you the other week and I did enjoy your lecture.  Are you finding the downturn in the economy has had any effect on the amount of work you are getting or in the expenses.  I have noticed here that enquiries for family birthday parties have dropped although the work for community projects has not.  How are you finding things over there in the States?

The Jonah & the whale was probably my routine.  Of course there may be other versions of it going around too.  Currently I only have the one Gospel Balloon DVD.  IBS carries some of my books and DVDs.   If they are out, you can contact me via email to order them.

There is a possibility that I'll be lecturing somewhere in the UK next year.  Keep checking my schedule to see when and where it will be.

Hello Thelma,
It was great meeting you and the other twisters as well.  By the way, on BalloonHQ your dog design should appear in May in my column.  Thanks again for sharing it with the balloon community.

My area (Houston, Texas) doesn't seem to be lacking for balloon work.  However, the increases in gasoline prices has impacted travel a lot.  I'm not sure about other areas of the USA as far as demand for twisters.  I haven't heard on the BalloonHQ email list that other areas are suffering yet.
