This is copied out of an email I received today from Bullseye Glass Co. While I don't use that much Bullseye Glass, I do know that moretti glass is also going up, due to the price of gas, etc. Unfortunately for bead makers, it means that they will have to raise their prices to keep up with the rising price of glass, gas, etc. I guess everyone is feeling the pinch - check out my web site for the rest of September for a 10% off sale!

Have a great weekend! We are visiting my friend Beth and her family for dinner tonight - she has half a cow to eat, and we're bringing the pie and corn from the farmer's market! I can't wait to what else she's done to her house - right now I think they are working on their deck. They do it all by themselves, too! Busy Busy!
Oh yes, and I want to say good luck to all the people in Texas who are dealing with Hurricane Ike. I haven't seen too much on the news about it, yet, I'm sure we will later when people can finally figure out what's going on. We're thinking about you.

If you don't know, there's a CIM glass rod color called Elphaba - pretty funny!

Always remember, never forget. And I hope all of you are safe.

If you have noticed the time and temperature setting to the right of my blog paragraphs, you will see that we here in Pittsburgh are getting a bit of a much-welcomed cold front moving in. I certainly appreciate it - sitting in front of a 940 degree kiln while using a torch makes for a hot work session. Having my basement a little bit cooler is great! Although I'll be complaining in the winter, when it's really cold down there. That's why I love fall so much - the temperatures are so great! Now, if we could only get some rain - I mean real rain! We had a little bit today, but not nearly enough to turn my backyard green again!
How did my kid get strep throat already? He was only in school for 5 days, and he missed today and will miss tomorrow because he has strep throat. I figured we'd have a month or two before the illnesses started - hmph!

Sorry, just needed to get that off my proverbial chest. Back to your regularly scheduled program.
