Two More Event Planning Resources

Here's another new event planning site that I just came across. It's called PLUQ. I found this article about it that spells out its various features. It seems to be similar to some other event planning sites, but this one is geared for casual use, for parties, dinners, and such, with lots of interactivity possible.

(Update: 2/24/09: here's another article that describes the difference in PLUQ as compared to other event planning sites, and how it's more interactive.)

And if you're looking for a speaker for an event, you may want to check out the You can search for speakers by topic, post an "open call" for a speaker, or have the folks at the site find a speaker for you.

Have fun exporing!

A Few Quick Thoughts...

Just got back from Des Moines, Iowa, where I worked over the weekend at the Youth Strike for Christ conference. I performed a customized version of my one man theatre show for a group of about 600 teens. What a rush! A big thanks to Margo Fuller and Jim Oberbroekling with the Youth Strike group for inviting me and for being such gracious hosts. They put on a very impressive event.

I'm working on my latest email newsletter which should go out in the next couple of days sometime. If you're not on my list, and would like to be, send me an email and mention that you'd like to receive the newsletter. It's full of my thoughts, what I've been up to, and fun tidbits such as vegetarian recipes and a magic "Trick of the Month" that you can learn to do.

If you're in the Peoria area, have you been out to see me at my Wednesday night spot at Tyroni's Italian Cafe in Bartonville? If not, come on out, you'll love it! Here's the scoop.

Finally, a Happy Valentine's Day this weekend. Hope you find time to spend with those you love. Stay in touch!
