In 1923 only the rich had access to quality dentist and doctors, and teeth were not always valued by the middle and lower class.
I wish I could say everything has drastically changed. It has not. While affordable and often free dental services are available. Attitudes about oral health have been slow to change, I'm happy to report in West Virginia the publics desire to ' keep their teeth a life time' is slowly improving.
Among my circle of friends, there seems to be an effort to purchase close to the source - food from
farmers, clothing made IN USA - which I might say is more and more difficult.
We are buying furniture that was either handcrafted locally or was made of quality wood or steel by a USA maker.
Blenko Glass is made in the USA. Made in Milton, WVa , made daily by local craftsmen.
If you haven't tried Blenko Glass - go on line to the www.blenkoglass.com website or visit the gift shop in Milton, WVa. A list of shops carrying Blenko may be found on the Blenko Glass . Check out the Blenko Project website to learn more about Blenko Glass. www.blenkoproject.org
