Program:   Mabe presented another fine program for the club by introducing Gene R. Gordon, a Magician.

Gene was born in Englewood and went to Englewood High School. He has a wife and daughter, all of whom attended Englewood High. He was voted 7 times as Best in World for his Magic. He is a 20 year veteran Slight of Hand and has been voted “Best in Colorado”. He was also the “House Magician” at Casa Bonita’s Restaurant.

For the opening trick, Gene told how his wife likes to cut coupons from the paper as evident by all the pieces of newspaper, cut into about 1 foot squares. After spreading some magic dust on the strips of paper, Gene shook his hands and opened up a whole, newspaper page. There was no sign that that paper had been torn.

Gene demonstrated his skills of Slight of Hand work by having Bob Hogge pick a card from the deck and after some magic stuff, the card showed up in a sealed envelope. He also showed how to make 3 metal rings get hooked together or separated with no apparent defects in the rings as evident by Don Smiths’ careful examination of one of the rings.

Gene had Nick Morrone bring a $5 bill up to be used as the object of another “slight of hand” trick. After some fancy hand waving, flaming wallets and a partially burnt $1 bill (which Gene tried to convence Nick that his five dollar bill had turned into a one dollar bill, Nicks fiver was later pulled out of the cap of a pen, all rolled up in a small wad. It was verified as his because Nick had put his name on the bill.

Another trick was demonstrating an empty bag and through some magic trickery, an egg appeared. Gene did several other close up tricks also.

For Gene’s final trick, he was pulling scarves out of one hand and stuffing them into the other hand what appeared to be red, white and blue silk scarves, each tide end to end with the next color. When he waved his hand, he unfurled a U.S. flag. Great job Gene.

Gene has a web site at: www.Infinitymagicproduction.com and he will do his magic work for Corporate, Private or Public Functions. His card says” “Always the Best in Magic” and indeed, it was very impressive. If you would like to book him for your party or company function, call him at: 303 762-0467 or 720 318-7472

Movie review:


Show your goals and plan of action to someone who has achieved them and ask for advice. Why reinvent the wheel?

Never settle for less than the BEST.
Do not compromise on those things that are most important to you. You get what you settle for. Settle for only the best in life!

FOCUS on what you want.
Not on what you don't want or your present situation. You get what you focus on --- so focus on what you want...every moment.

HEALTH is your #1 priority!
Achieve and maintain excellent health. Only with good health can you enjoy your wealth! While benefiting all concerned.

TRAVEL more to experience more.
Broaden your horizons. Learn how others live. Be adventurous to enrich your life!

TAKE RISKS to move ahead in life.
Especially when you have little to lose and much to gain. You'll learn from many new experiences which will add to your life.

Learn something NEW daily.
This is the secret of happiness. Notice that when you are learning something you want to learn --- how happy you are!

Develop SPEED for productivity.
Challenge yourself to achieve faster with less effort and money. Be super effective!

Success is a JOURNEY.
Not a destination. Always keep this in mind. It's the gradual progression toward your goals that's important. Enjoy the journey!

Build a REPUTATION of integrity.
This is all you really have. Build it on integrity, honesty, being reliable. Be patient, it takes time. It's well worth all the effort.

At least a 30 minute walk. Alone or with a good companion. Use it to enjoy nature and to clarify

Did you receive a spam (junk e-mail message) that referred to CDT's Operation Opt-Out web site? Information is available about these messages and why Opt-Out can't work for e-mail. Posted September 4, 2001, updated March 11, 2002

Dear Concerned Consumer,

Are you tired of getting all that junk mail? Telephone calls during dinner? Worried about who has your name on a list and what they're doing with it? If so, this site is for you.

You may not realize it, but a company you have done business with may have sold or shared your personal information to other companies. In some cases, you have the power to stop this practice. Many companies give you the option to get off (or "opt-out" of) lists that share your information.

Some companies make the task of opting out relatively easy - some even let you do it online. Other companies make it difficult for you to opt out: addresses are buried, you can't opt-out online, etc. Some companies have even used the low rate at which individuals opt-out to argue that consumers don't really care about their privacy.

We know you care about privacy. We've created this web site to make it as easy as possible for you to opt-out of having your personal information shared and sold by the companies you interact with. Here's how you can get your name off the lists:

    1) In the "Generate Opt-Out Forms" section - We have taken many of the companies that do not allow you to opt-out online and created a system so that you can: a) generate a group of letters, b) print them out individually, c) fill in the particularly sensitive information, and d) mail them in to the proper address (sorry, but you'll have to provide your own postage).

    2) In the "Opt Out Online" section - We have set up links to the companies that do allow you to opt-out online. We place these links within frames so that you can simply fill out each opt-out form and then move on to the next one.

    3) In the "Featured" section - We focus on specific information practices or types of online companies. So far, we have highlighted portals and online profilers. We will periodically add new categories. Alerts on new features will be e-mailed to the CDT activist list, so sign-up if you want to be notified of the latest steps you can take to protect your privacy.
