Sorry for the lack of blog posting recently. I’m working out my plans for the future, which is a time-consuming process.
I’m in the Cyclades at the moment and am looking online for a job. I’m going to close my current business down and work for another company. If anyone knows of any job availabilities in the memory field, please let me know.
Otherwise, I will take a regular, full-time job in the hostel industry that leaves me enough time in the day to train on memory. With my current business taking up 10 to 16 hours per day, I don’t have enough free time to seriously train.

Jon Vickers as Otello fits #175 which was previously “telephone” (now #802). Otello’s hair, bulky clothes, and dramatic staggering are distinctive. Cornell MacNeil as Iago will be #337. The buttons on his costume are memorable, as well as his goatee and villainous gesturing.
