That is a good ad. Classes on making glass. Wish I had these doctor bills paid I would take a class. I like the stain class windows that Hillary's parents made. I also would like to learn or watch how they blow the glass. I also would like to see the permanet mold operation. Have to do a walk thur. Us to work in a brass factory making cores and grinding. and assemblying sprinkler systems. Now that use to be a big thing in WV. I wonder sometimes how many business have my work. Use to put out 2,000 K-frames aday.I know how hot the furances have to be to melt brass and lead. Well good luck on filling your class/glasses. LOL. Roxie
