  • Juggling Chainsaws

    Here is a short video of me juggling chainsaws at an event. I got some grass stuck in one of the chainsaws at first, so I had to dislodge it while everyone waited. Then I got it out and juggled the chainsaws. Yes, they are sharp and running. They are Makita battery operated chainsaws with a…

  • It’s As Scary As It Looks – At First

    At first, this is very frightening. But after years of practicing the shorter unicycle, I found that once I took that first “leap of faith” onto the tall unicycle and rode it for a bit, it was just like riding the shorter one, just higher in the air. This was taken at Highland Lakes Camp…

  • Juggling a Chainsaw

      DISCLAIMER: DO NOT ATTEMPT! I juggled a live, running, sharp chainsaw for the very first time last week in North Carolina. I guess I was tired of being a juggler for 15 years and having people ask me, “Soooo, can you juggle a chainsaw?” I would always have to say, “No, but I’d like…

  • From the Lips of Children

    Tomorrow is Palm Sunday, the day of the Christian calendar where we celebrate the Triumphal Entry, when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey while the crowd shouted “Hosanna!” That means, “Save!” The choice of donkey versus a horse demonstrates that Jesus is the humble king. But there is another detail of this story that…
