Hi Guys
I am a 45 year old dad of 3 boys who has loved magic my whole life but has only starting studying the art in the last few years.Grew up watching The Paul Daniels show every Saturday evening and that was when I first encountered astonishment.I have learnt very quickly that learning this beautiful art is a marathon and not a sprint .I have always loved books and have acquired many lifetimes of learning in a short period of time,what is it with this book addiction ?
From my very short time here I can see that this community respect each other and value each others opinions, many similar online forums could learn a valuable lesson from TMF. 
Thank you for letting me be part of this community and I look forward to what lies ahead.

Kind regards
Damien

Damien,

Welcome. We're glad you dropped by and look forward to getting to know you better. You are correct, sir. Rudy has created a special little corner for those of us less interested in drama, and more in magic, to get together. Out of curiosity, how'd you stumble upon us?

Hi Anthony,
I was reading a review of Mr Loraynes jaw droppers lecture and decided to purchase the lecture and that is how I found TMF.

Welcome! Never too late to start and hopefully it will pass along to your kids. Gotta keep passing the torch.

Welcome to our community, Damien! I trust that you'll find this to be a friendly place to talk about magic 😉

See you around!

Welcome Damien.

Your story sounds very much like my own when I joined 3 years ago. My magic has come on in leaps and bounds since joining TMF. Loved watching Paul Daniels back in the day.

Hi Damien, I am new to TMF as well. I have noticed the marked difference here at TMF as you did. Respect and the high value placed on each others opinions.

Welcome aboard sir.

Hi Dave,

It's not bad. Before I floated across the water for uni, there was a magic club that met once a month every Monday. What's it like down south?

Hi Rouxnapse,
Unfortunately down south there is nothing ,the nearest meeting for me would be in Dublin which would be a five hour round trip. I learn from my books and some dvds and preform for family and friends .I have just received my copy of "And Finally" from Harry this week so every night book and cards in hand.

Kind regards
Damien
