Please if you have sent anything that isn't published
re send.
In the title line write
Blenko Glass / Blog
I receive tons of spam mail daily due to the blog.
We want your photos and your stories.
Please re send.
We publish each and every story that is Blenko related and also publish photos.
The blogger is preset 10 days in advance so it may be 10-14 days before you see your story or photo.
Again 'Thank you' for sending your photos and stories and for reading Heart of Glass and most of all for supporting Blenko Glass. Buy made in the USA.

My BF did a Master or Doc of Public Health. I shall today ask him to mail you all the materials he has and used, papers, test etc to assit you with this program.
You will not regret a career in Public Health.
Money is not the most important factor in having a great life.
Public Service provides a good life and time to enjoy the good life. Rural Health care is critical to having a healthy happy nation. Dental Health care is in crisis. You will flourish in this enviroment.
Actually I could see you working at CDC in Atlanta or the CDC office in your own state.
Dentistry more than other health modalities needs someone to push for changes and knowledge.
You go Hilary.
I'll ask my friend today
please post your mailing address.

??? Does it makes you nervous to know your blog is always listed last on the blog homepage?
Is this because you have fewer readers than the other blogs?
Just curious.

I keep meaning to take photos, have tried but glass is difficult to photograph.
I'll have to bring it next time and ask WV Jan to photograph, unlike Bruce and Diane I have no skill in this area.
I enjoy seeing the photos, wish I could contribute.
