AMAZED residents had a new dimension added to their lives earlier this month when Uri Geller visited Nightingale Home in Nightingale Lane, Balham. A large crowd, packed into the home’s new concert centre, watched Uri bend Nightingale spoons before their very eyes. They also witnessed a mysterious changing of time on watches. Uri, who spent over an hour at the home, told those present his life story. He spoke of his army training, and how he became a paratrooper. He then became a model and explained how, by chance, he had shown a photographer how he was able to bend spoons and other metal objects. The photographer then booked him as an entertainer. Uri has appeared around the world to packed audiences but his busiest time was in the mid 1970s. Today, Uri writes a great deal and teaches other people to understand their own powers. He also has the power to heal and receives regular visits from people to his home.

Dear Mr. Geller,
On behalf of the Montreal Chapter of Ezrath Nashim-Herzog Hospital, it is my pleasure to thank you for your support: in cur recent fundraising event. It is with much pride that I am able to report that our benefit this past May, was a great success both socially and financially.
The auction of your piece was particularly lively. After our “Vannas” paraded around displaying your efforts, our guests jumped with whole heart into a mini bidding war. It was very exciting. Without question, I can say that your participation made our evening even more sensational.
Working on a fundraising project that helps expand our community outreach and in addition generates more interest in the Hospital’s work, is every fundraiser’s goal. Being in contact with an artist like yourself, whose generosity of spirit was remarkable uplifting, was a gift. Raising over $80,000 for research for Herzog Hospital was the result. We’re pretty happy and you should be pretty proud – without you; none of this would have been possible. Thank you!
Please accept our program book as a token of our gratitude. I hope you’ll remember Herzog Hospital and the role you played in supporting geriatric and psychiatric research with much fondness and pride. We will certainly remember your contributions with gratitude.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
