I will recommend this conference to any glass lover, to anyone interested in glassblowing or glass arts.
The opportunity to meet new artist, to renew friendships and
to visit Louisville for something other than horse racing.
Everyone plan to attend.

Answers:
Comments: If your comment contains the word Blenko it will be published - if your comment is vile or the focus is a person or behavior not glass it will not be published.
Simple enough?
Glass Arts Society - Boring? Only the small mined or ignorant are bored. If you love glass art this conference is an excellent weekend away.
Thank you Dr Ann - I also enjoy this GAS confernces.
Other Q's.
#1. I haven't found a job - I will work in Public Health or Community Health and in WV. Probably a rural area ( Elana do you have a job for me?).
#2 Ms B shares the Homburg girls' passion for chocolate - deep dark chocolate. We absent mindedly left chocolate on a low table.
Ms B is now very healthy. Thank you. Short story with good ending.
Lesson learn....Do Not Allow Your Pet Near Chocolate Its Deadly.
#3 I love OSU - I will leave Ohio in June .
#4 My Dad's Retirment Car - E- Blue Tec - remains at the South Charleston Body Shop ...its now almost 90 days since the small
rear end accident.
Thank you for asking. AVOID buying a car when the dealer has NO Body Shop.
#5 Car was not totaled - small accident - car was going less than 25 miles per hour. No it is not totaled.
#6 Blenko's Future? Well...I plan to ask Walter Blenko to speak about this. My belief is Blenko's future is strong. The interest in Blenko Glass continues to grow.
Blenko is the ONLY manufacturer of antique glass in USA (to my knowledge).
#7. Collectors Group - I have no knowledge? Anyone else with current update? If so speak up.
After July 2010 I'll have free time and plan to work with the group. You also should volunteer to assist. Karin Alonzo of Texas is the current BCS president we'll also email her to ask for status.
#8. Yes. The American Glass Museum in Weston should be promoted.
#9 I didn't alter the blog location. This was a Herald decision. I don't know how to get the blog listed in search engines (or relisted) If you have the knowledge and time - Please help.
#10 re: comments (see above) - include blenko, focus on blenko and no problem it should publish.
Thank you for reading the Heart of Glass Blog and for purchasing and supporting Blenko Glass. Blenko Glass located in Milton, WV.

small minded and ignorant?that sounds like anybody that would push a company that has refused to pay a gas bill they owe and could care less about their men just ask some of them or are you afraid you might hear something to break your blenko colored glasses?
