Got Milk..Glass?

First made in Venice in the 16th century, colors include blue, pink, yellow, brown, black, and the white that led to its popular name.  Pieces made for the wealthy of the Gilded Age are known for their delicacy and beauty in color and design, while Depression glass pieces of the 1930’s and ’40s are less so. Perhaps one of the most famous uses of opal glass (or at least the most viewed example) was for the four faces of the information booth clock at Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan.

A Bird In The Hand…

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Did you hear this all the time as a child? I did , but never knew what it meant! Til now that is…
It’s better to have a lesser but certain advantage than the possibility of a greater one that may come to nothing.
This proverb refers back to medieval falconry where a bird in the hand (the falcon) was a valuable asset and certainly worth more than two in the bush (the prey). The first citation of the expression in print in its currently used form is found in John Ray’s_A Hand-book of Proverbs_. (1670)
