More travelling - today to Toronto to visit our glass (jars) supplier, the tech centre, and two warehouses. With the exception of the glass company, not an exciting day.

But the glass company just about made up for the lack of excitement. That place is incredible! Slugs of molten glass shooting about like something from a science fiction movie. And the heat in some places! It's one thing to know that making glass means high temperatures, and another to actually see the flames shooting out of the little window, and feel the heat buffeting you from the furnace.It was a good time.

The car ride wasn't bad, but it was a car ride with six other people - I feel drained right about now. Thank goodness for leftovers. One other positive thing about today - a friend from work told me about a house in Welland a friend of hers is looking to rent out for a good price - this could be promising. I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high - I'm getting tired of disappointment. But it sounds perfect for me. No! Hopes must be low...

Found out that my papa's memorial luncheon went well. People were talking about him - memories and stories. Makes me really wish I'd gone, now. I never really got to know him as a person other than 'my crabby grandfather'. I know that there must have been more to him, but he was so unhappy that it was difficult to learn much about him by speaking to him. I'm hoping that going through the old pictures will be enlightening - I'm really looking forward to that. I hope that I can do something good with the photos - make them really usable for everyone. Sitting in boxes like they were, they weren't of much use.

Well, I'm going to play with the movies I took today. I'm hoping I can string them together into one - maybe put some music with them, since all the sound is is a big roar in the background.

Now what kind of music is good for a glass factory?
