Ticking again, after 25 Years

By Judith Phillips
TIME had stood still for a watch owned by Marjorie Jones – until she watched a TV programme featuring Uri Geller.
Within minutes of following his instructions, the watch – which hadn’t worked for 25 years started ticking away merrily much to the amazement of self-confessed sceptic Marjorie.
“My sister was with me at the time, and at first we couldn’t believe it. She gave me the watch as a present and naturally I was upset when it stopped working,” said Marjorie, of Llanrhos.
“I put it away in a drawer and left it there for 25 years until I saw Uri Geller on television.”
The internationally famous spoon bender urged viewers to place
broken watches and clocks on top of their TV sets and then used his psychic powers to bear to try to get them working again.
“I fetched the watch and did what he said just for a laugh really – I’ve seen him on TV before butalways thought that he used some sort of trick to bend the spoons and so on, but now I’m not so sure, Marjorie added.
“When I saw the watch was working, I was staggered. I couldn’t believe it, and neither could my sister”

“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 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.”

“Absolutely amazing”

“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”
