Re: Burnt Bridges

I advise on a glass art forum on Facebook occasionally but there are dozens of others that I couldn't spend more than 30 seconds on because they're full of people spouting tosh. It's not just Facebook poultry forums...

Happily someone on this forum (sorry, I can't remember who) warned me t...
