Hey Ferd & Elizabeth,

I plan on contributing some pictures, stories, information etc..very soon Bravo to you both!!
I just registered on your wonderful website. I have found a number of Benicia bottles in San Francisco Bay over the years. I will try and send you some photos. Keep up the good work, excited to see future posts and updates!!
Thanks John. Always looking for pictures to support posts. F
Moments ago I had the time to view your entire web site and I must comment that the glass hobbyist as well as all of us who are members of the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors are fortunate to have you among our ranks. Your site provides a stage or a setting to inspire individuals to expand their interests in glass objects and become more dedicated to advancing our hobby. I am most grateful to know and call you a close friend.
I just registered for your site and wanted to thank you for providing such a great venue for all of us to share our passion for early bottles and glass. The photography is outstanding and I look forward to being able to contribute pictures of some interesting and rare bottles and glass.
To Ferdinand and Elizabeth, Barbara and I want to thank you for the article you have created for us concerning our glass and history interests. The passion you both put into your collecting and into your Peachridge Glass Site is much admired by our glass community ! Keep up the sensational work and happy glass hunting, kind regards, Dale and Barbara Santos.
