    4. I'm blessed with an incredibly darling husband (DH), two very intelligent high-maintenance kids, and Ivy the Wonder Dog.
    5. I'm learning to make kombucha.
    6. I'm a DIY kind of girl - we grow our own veggies and fruits, we make our own soap, and because my DH and son are allergic to wheat and corn, I make all of our baked goods (bread, pizza, cookies, muffins, etc.) from scratch. And it's really GOOD!
    7. My DH and I eloped to Carmel, CA because I refused to get married in Fresno, CA.
    8. Marbles are more fun to pull out of the kiln than are beads - I don't have to clean them!

    10. I'm addicted to anime and manga.

    1) i have always wanted to be a boxer, except i'm a four eyes and kind of a pussy; even though i think about it seriously sometimes, i have never put on a pair of gloves.

    2) i love tobacco which means i hate myself.

    3) after a short period of years where i took the practices professionally, i no longer drink alcohol or take hallucinogenics. except . . . . well, there are exceptions.

    4) in the late 80's, as a kid, i taught sunday church school. in 1993 i spoke in tongues, writhing on the floor next to a man with a full back tattoo of jesus in a bed of marijuana. in 1994 i was hunted by an angel who finally caught up to me on a greyhound bus, he wore all white and ate sausages he said were from a dumpster, he told me none would be spared and that my path was marked. in 1999, i left my body via DMT and saw god; i said i was scared, he said 'my shield protects you'. in 2004, closer to the edge of the human mind than i have ever been, i told god that i would sacrifice my life to be a glass craftsman of skill; he said, 'done'.

    5) i owned a head shop in boulder, colorado before i stared lampworking called happy harold's glass warehouse. i sold pipes and had a snack bar that served soggy sandwiches, hemp ice cream and fifty sacks. one day the police came to the store and said they thought i should take a vacation. i said when do you think i should go, they said before tomorrow morning; i moved to up state new york.

    6) i am working in the eleventh glass shop i have built; i hate the idea of moving again but know i will soon.

    7) i often dream of a boro girl, tall with blond hair, vegetarian, red westphalia camper and a 24" stienheart; but i've never met her. maybe she dreams of me.

    8) i have a dog named ruby, she is the reincarnate of this other dog named cedar; when cedar died i buried her with a to-go plate of bacon from dot's dinner cause that was her favorite. wild flowers grow strong from the grave, ruby likes to pee on them.

    9) twice in my life i have tried to join the us army and twice i have been rejected. twice i have quit a job, moved out of a house and sold off my life to ready myself for the service and twice, after a handfull of weeks, was returned to the boston buss station empty handed. the second time, as the fort jackson doctor was signing my discharge prior to training papers, i asked him what kind of a man am i that i am unfit to catch a bullet for my country. he told me, son, i'm happy to say you'll have the chance to find out. the army sent me a bill for $11.50 for laundry services rendered; i let it go to collections.

    10) even though it has moved so many times before, the only place on earth i have always felt welcome and excepted is in my glass shop. and so i stay there.

    4. I don't steal or lie.

    Probably too much information, but here goes:


    1- My parents signed me out of school in 1982 (16 years old), because I felt that working was more productive than going to school. I have been working full time since then…presiding over 3 corporations and 2 sole proprietorships… but was always an entrepreneur, and have been working since I was 12 years old.

    2- I despise liars, thieves, cheaters, and those who take advantage of “the system”.

    3- I served in the U.S. Army as a Military Police Officer, as well as the police equivalent of the “SWAT Team”. I am Special Forces qualified in explosives and demolition, and an expert marksman with the M-1911, M-16, M-60, and M-203 grenade launcher.

    4- I met and dated the love of my life 25 years ago (more than ˝ of our lives), and have been happily married to her for the past 15 years. We have never even raised our voices to / at each other… EVER. Any disagreements are resolved diplomatically with compromises that we both agree with.

    5- I have had 5 dogs in my life, and all of them ended in some sort of tragedy and severe heartbreak. As much as we love animals, Elaine and I will never have another one… we love them TOO much. I loved my dog “Blackie” so much, that I wanted to die before she did so I didn’t have to go through the pain of losing her.

    6- High moral standards are paramount to me… so much so, that even I can not live up to them.

    7- I enjoy giving far more than receiving, and have always wanted to be a philanthropist. This is why I am leaving our facility to the glass community.

    8- I am a hermit / homebody / loner, and do not like to travel. I am very content living in my own private world here in the middle of “nowhere”, but I enjoy… and am proud of… providing a place where like minded people (glass workers) can converge and learn from each other.

    9- I’m a die hard 80’s metal head, and occasionally dress the part for fun when I blow glass. It’s kind of a cross between Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), Blackie Lawless (Wasp), and Vince Neil (Motley Crue).

    10- Politically and spiritually, I align myself with traditional Christian / conservative values… with the exception of abortion, gay rights, and a few other issues.

    11- I love my country, but I hate the people that are running it and fucking it up.

    12- mer is an awesome dude, and this one is for him… keeping it in multiples of 3

    4) I own a house, that doesnt have wheels like my childhood home.
