Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. 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.

Blogger Network

My good friend Chris' Blog http://not-my.blogspot.com/ discusses most everything except BLENKO GLASS and WEST VIRGINIA CRAFTS Note: He will on occasion post BLENKO GLASS SALES and other events. He's been known to activate the 304 Bloggers and have everyone POST BLENKO Events. Bloggers network a good group of people to know. Chris is the people person, he knows everyone, and is generous with info and time. Today his blog is about Bill Maher's Film .....
"I was driving by Park Place Cinemas (which I still have a tendency to call "Cinema 7") in downtown Charleston Sunday between two hospital hearings and was thrilled when I saw Bill Maher's Religulous on the marquee! I never expected that I would be seeing that film come to Charleston, WV as I was just discussing it with JDB the other day who had caught this film when it opened in Pittsburgh on the same logic. JDB reviews this film much better than I could over at Infinity Ranch (so check it out) but here is my crack at it. Bill Maher likes to be irreverent and I appreciate that about him. He was one of the first who spoke out against the George W. Bush administration when their solution to 9/11 was to tell people to slap a flag sticker on their car and go to the mall as a way to help the nation ... now 7 years later look where we are. His book When You Ride Alone, You Ride With Bin Laden was brilliant and I used to watch his tv show when it was on Comedy Central"

I am a state farm agent, I would buy Blenko as gifts for my clients if they could come up with a $50 piece not too big
and would somehow date it
for the Holiday not necessarily santa clause but
just 12 08 or something or else
an etched holly
anything or just a two color
item. That we might special order. My thinking is you could promote the hell out of an item like this, but need to do it now as people are currently buying for holiday.

I will be waiting for this movie to come to the rental stores. Watched the short clip. The Holy Bible is my religion, not some of the people who preach and teach this subject for they scare me. Roxie
