We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

UGH let me try again - my computer I must admit is almost old enough to begin junior high school - and my digital camera is ready for grade school - both ancient by 'normal standards'.

I gave my old computer to goodwill last month, if only I had been a little more thoughtful.
Anyone else about ready to trade up? Remember our Hilary? Camera?
Computer? Pencils? Laugh!
In another 9 months you'll be rolling in dollars and electronics, dentist are known for their love of the exotic.
