Party Tips:

Written invites are a great idea. Try to make them fun and different. Use your personality but don't forget the basics like time and location. Tell your guests when the party starts and when it will end. Specify the hour in advance to avoid confusion. Let your guests know what kind of attire is appropriate. If you are anticipating a semi-formal gathering let them know.

Outside of traffic, there is nothing that holds this country back as much as committees.

A little Magic History: more history

Houdini was known as a debunker of fake mediums and spiritualists. His interest began during his bereavement after the death of his mother, Cecilia Weiss. Because of his background as an illusionist, he recognized the techniques of mediums who claimed to have contacted the spirit world. Houdini became a crusader against these charlatans who bilked grieving families of their money. He frequently attended seances in disguise in order to expose the mediums.
