BC0D63D7-41B2-48A0-8D2C-3B19FF2CF4ACIn an earlier life, I ran a jewelry manufacturing company of over 500 people. We manufactured jewelry for Avon, Tiffany, David Yurman, and so on.

I learned all my business skills running the factory. In the 1960s we had over 30 people who were glassblowers making glass beads. My grandfather actually invented the dipping of glass beads for coloring.

This week I was at Corning Community College in New York, the home of Corning Glass.

I was able to visit the Corning Glass Museum. Brought back many way cool memories.
