Smashing Time

Do you remember Pyrex Dishes

When I was growing up you could put a Pyrex Dish on your head to wear as a helmet. Your mates could chuck bricks at you and the Pyrex kept them off. Never broke, even when you fell on your head.

What has happened to Pyrex. Today I dropped a pyrex bowl on the floor, and only from a height of six feet, and it exploded. Sharp edges bits of glass all over the floor.

Thank Ghod we don't have a doggy at the moment!

Is Pyrex less good than it used to be.

Has Pyrex been taken over by the French and all of its' strength leached away.

Or is it like long hot summers, longer and hotter in memory than reality.
