Shifting Priorities

Mikey has been writing on this blog for well over a decade with over 1600 entries and counting! He's shared his thoughts on the trials and tribulations of running a business from the inside, gave helpful hints and advice on topics from stained glass to fusing and even occasionally made the odd discovery such how he is the smarter brother of Albert Einstein
Mikey shared the notice of securing the exclusive distributorship of Swiss Cheesed Glass (the glass with holes) only to have to contend with a recall (holes were the wrong size). And how the naming rights to our building were to become the 'Swiss Cheesed GlassWerks Building'. 
Or that John Lennon wrote Carry That Weight and She Came in Through the Bathroom Window about how Paul met his unfortunate death in the bathroom when a truck delivery of lead came crashing through the basement window onto Paul while he was indisposed.
All these entries always appeared on the Fantasy In Glass blog.
Then we were able to simultaneously publish them on our Facebook Page as secondary.
Starting today, we will be making Facebook our primary spot as a source of all things Fantasy In Glass.
Just to see if you read this, we will give you a $1/lb off on all solder purchases until Feb. 6 if you can identify the guy at the top of this entry.
That is all...
