Tom Jones at the MGM, 1/24/09

We went to see my friend, Tom Jones, at the MGM last night. He is such a great entertainer and puts on an excellent show. We go everytime he is in town and I recommend that if you come to Vegas you check him out as well!

I autographed some tickets...

After the show I signed more autographs and meet some great fans...

I talked with Tom backstage. He's a great guy!

Los Angeles

We are in Los Angeles this weekend. We are spending Saturday and Sunday at the Magic Castle and then off to a book signing at the Border's Books in Northridge.

Saturday night, I magically appeared on stage during a magic show and then gave a Q and A about my life in movies. It was a wonderful, and sold out audience and we all had a great time. I signed books and sold and signed artwork, posters, and photos...

I have always loved Magic and the Magic Castle is really a cool place to be. I am hoping to come here on a more regular basis...

Here I am talking with a fellow Magician...

Some of my artwork on display...

Here is my Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Most people don't realize that when I first moved to Hollywood from NYC, that I lived not far from where my star is located.
Sunday night the Magic Castle is screening my film, Houdini, and again, afterward, I will talk and answer questions.

Saturday at the Ranch

Saturday Jillie and I went out to Shiloh for an interview for a magazine called Energy Times. It's an environmental publication and they wanted to learn more about our horse rescue, Shiloh.

Jillie and I were photographed with one of our horses, Tanis. Tanis is a Friesian from the Netherlands. Jillie's ancestry is Dutch and I bought her Tanis last year...

I spent some time with one of Shiloh's Pigs, Jimmy Dean. JD is a 5 month old Pot Bellied Pig who was scheduled to be euthanized at a local shelter here in Vegas. Jillie and Sally (Jillie's mom and rescue partner) brought him out to Shiloh. We actually have five pigs at Shiloh- Sonny and Cher, Sausage Patti, Pig Newton, and now Jimmy Dean. They are living out their lives at our rescue.

Jimmy Dean loves to walk on a leash. Once he grows a little bit bigger, he will be able to roam freely with the other pigs.

Here I am with Spur, one of the ranch dogs.
Me and Tanis.
