Predictions for 2009!

Predictions for 2009. Mountain Rita ask me for mine, do you have any predictions for 2009? If so send them to the blog, or just comment here. Mine are:
Blenko Glass's will have an Outstanding Year in 2009.
2009 will be a Year of PROFIT for Blenko Glass
Blenko Glass Designs in 2009 will be Award Winning!
Blenko Collectors Society will grow double in size!
Blenko Collectors Societys' annual meeting attendance will triple in size for 2009!
2009 will be a very good year for all things BLENKO!
The Heart of Glass Blog will post # 1,000 in jan 2009!
A couple years ago Mr. Walter and Mr. Don Blenko stepped in to aide Mr. WH Blenko and Blenko Glass. The Blenko Family feels devotion to West Virginia and to the men and women who work at Blenko Glass. We as collectors and West Virginians need to also be loyal to Blenko. I'm not certain what we can do to help. Other than BUY BLENKO! Tell your friends and neighbors in other states about Blenko! Word of mouth is the very best advertisement. Quality keeps them coming back!
Its a difficult proposition making glass in today's economy but BLENKO knows their product is A+ nothing compares to handmade West Virginia glass. In quality - but price - well competing with the imports in price - just can't be done. . . . SO we must depend on YOU the consumer to THINK before you buy, BUY quality handcrafted made in the USA products. Check the label.
Keep the JOBS at homes. Buy locally grown foods, fabrics, glass, dishes, marbles, furniture, wood for your fire place.
We need your photos and stories about BLENKO please send to theblenkoproject@aol.com if you don't get a note from me within 5 days - resend I'm having trouble with SPAM control. hjh

I predict a real depression in the American economy.
A closing of most all American companies feel the rush of jobs to the Mexican borders? No unions.
The collapse of the American dollar, the collapse of the republican party, the collapse of the Heart of Glass along with the Republican Party she loves so much, and also Blenko.

It was a great night for the indian film fraternity at the golden globes yesterday night. "Slumdog millionaire" - the movie set in mumbai about a poor lad's dramatic road to becoming a millionaire won quite a few awards including best picture, best director, best screeplay (englishmen) and best music director (A. R Rahman)... not sure if you are aware of him but he is a tamilian and the best in the business in india currently.. He wont out among a field that included Hans Zimmer!!.. He's always deserved it, except that his great scores were always set in movies from the not-so-relatable indian socio-cultural mileu and hence not really appreciated by the west..

I predict that Dr Hilary does no such thing. She waits until she is closer to 30 or at least over 25 before she steps into an engagement and then only after meeting my Saul. (laugh)
These ladies are married and want you to join them in their bondage Hilary.
Also whats wrong with other occupations? Artist? Dentist? Oral Surgeon? Hospital Admin. Real Estate Broker Business Owner Self Employeed Play Boy?

Hilary find yourself an engineer or an accountant no doc as you know the govt doesn't let us make any money and we work too hard not good spouses.

Blenko Glass continues to make glass in West Virginia, even in these bad times because people like to buy quality made items. Items that last.
