Beginnings . . .
Do you ever take time to ask where it began? where you are going? what you really want of life?
Earlier this week someone asked if I was always so focused and serious - and I didn't know the answer.
I found this photo taken on my first day of school (not pre school but REAL school) I insisted on walking myself - my uncle and my parents are 1/2 block away.
Life is precious isn't it? - family, friends, community, learning and loving to learn, all part of life. My grade school is closing, my town has radically changed in the last decade.
Some things you can COUNT ON! Some things DON'T CHANGE
BLENKO GLASS in Milton, West Virginia is one of the constants:
they make quality, handmade glass the old fashioned way.
Blenko is now the only manufacturer of antique and stain glass in the United States. The question is ARE WE WILLING TO SUPPORT QUALITY do we value quality?
Don't allow another manufacturer to leave the US, steel, electronics, what's really made in the USA? . . .
Forgive me for rambling, but today I just want you all to go to BLENKO or else use their website to order your Holiday Gifts, gifts for your clients etc. and to THINK before you buy....where was this item made?
