My apologies if this has already been posted -- with 247 postings to
go I don't think I can make it through them tonight! My interpretation
of the hand-shaking was that it was part of the building of energy 
for Bob's physical manifesting. All three seen shakers had their right
hand shaking. When Bob came out of the black light it was with his
right hand first, exposed just to the point where the people's shake
had stopped.
