Sometimes even the quietest of parties will precipitate a visit from the local law enforcement agency. If the police arrive be courteous. They may have been called to your party by an irate or concerned neighbor (who may not have been invited!). Try to answer the concerns of the police officer outside your front door. Stay calm and respond to reasonable requests ("keep the noise down, move vehicles that may be blocking the roadway, etc.") If you are intoxicated, don't attempt to negotiate with the police, send your spouse or trusted friend to the door, an intoxicated host gives the police a valid reason for concern (and possibly further action). Never get out of control, especially at your own party!

Storing Invisible Balls
Monty often gives away invisible balls, coins and other invisible items during his shows. These are easily lost since they are invisible (some people can see invisible items under UV or black light and sometimes they will show up in photography or video depending on lighting conditions.) Also most people cannot feel invisible items. The best thing to do is stick the invisible item in your pocket or purse. When you get home, put the invisible item in a jar and label it Invisible Magic Ball from Monty. You can then show the invisible balls to all your friends. If you put them under UV or black light, some of your friends will even be able to see them.

Simurgh first started out as a lion-bodied bird but eventually turned all bird. Simurgh is said to live at the Tree of Knowledge whose branches have the seed of every plant that has ever existed. This Persian bird is believed to have a magical touch that heals on contact, and have seen the world destroyed and created three times, thus having the knowledge of every age that has existed. Simurgh is said to be so large it can carry an elephant. It is also known to take children to nurse or adopt.
