I got worms yesterday by the priority mail. They are packed in a video cassette size priority mail box. They are alive, but not active at all. I prepared the compost bin with extra plastic container laying around for the craft shows. Drill bunch of holes on the bottom, and put an air hole with a cushion came with the Orton cones glued over the top. My wife teased me about names for new pets. I have checked them a couple time since, they are more active now.
I had very good firing, and found couple good leads for new glaze combination.
