Long-time readers (Hi, Denise!) may remember that Sara took me to a make-your-own-paperweight tutorial when we were in Corning. Here’s the front door of the place, Hands On Glass. The door ain’t much of a much, but they’ve garnished it well. (Sorry — I’ve been watching cooking shows again.)
Important pro tip: Don’t actually put hour hands on glass unless the glass is cool. This door opens onto the glory hole, which heats the glass to around 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit (1,093 Celsius).

Wandering around Corning, we came across this brewery. Alas, we didn’t patronize it, as it had moved elsewhere. We liked the arches and the murals in the niches.
We also saw its antithesis: the Corning Health Center, which sported a ghost window or two.
I got excited when I saw there was an attraction called “Mark Twain’s Study” in Elmira, about an hour away. So we drove in the rain to see it. We saw it.
But all was not lost: This is where we had lunch at Boricana, SO GOOD!
