Hi Steve, nice coverage. It is time for me to get back there again. I have it on my do list because I have heard that they have several old wooden molds, and I think the would be worthy of some study. I used to know two museum directors, but I know that neither one of them is there now. Retirement thins us older ones out of the business world. RED Matthews

Thanks for taking us along, Steve. That would make a nice place to live. Now if Corning would just display their stuff like that!
