    • We refer to temperature using Farenheit. Hope that helps and thanks for your kind words!

  2. When I was in primary school in the 60s, we were told it would all be metric by now.

    never underestimate British Imperialism!

    or the Spanish Inquisition, it just goes by other names now…..

  3. I have always wanted to learn how to blow glass and make my own glass object (a little kiss).  I would like to set up a group of people who want to learn how to blow glass at Sea on Celebrity.  Who would I contact?  Are you for hire?  I can be reached at (937) 879-5702.  I am a travel agent at Excellence in Travel

  4. Does anyone here have experience in photographing glass objects?  Any tips?  I’m a pretty experienced amateur, but would appreciate any tips anyone has learned.
    A family friend who makes her own jewelry beads and wants me to photograph them suggested this site. 
    Thanks! email: jerryq1000@comcast.net

  5. I’d like to see more on photographing glass. in particular art glass of all types and crystal/brilliant glass. the set up for the plate was really interesting. I have a very large glass collection and I’d like to get good photos of everything but it’s so difficult. lol. I know I’m not alone in this talking with other collectors.
