Does anyone know if hot liquids has a harmful effect on lead crystal?

I just made a pot of cinnamon coffee, ...and I was too lazy to go downstairs to the kitchen to get a coffee cup, ...so I poured it into a crystal wine glass instead. {lol}  Is that bad for crystal?

{Phew} Thanks Miggy. I was a little nervous, so to be on the safe side, I used the Baccarat instead of the Waterford.

My father was a quartz crystal engineer.  In fact, he was the world chairman of the CSA (Canadian Standards) and BSA (British).  He travelled all over the world to give speeches and wrote in algebra or crystal talk or something.

I know lots about crystals.  He taught me.  I have a few beauties.

(he retired years ago and they no longer use crystals for radios.

I can't be using the Waterford.  I'll only smash it.

Thanks Lord H. No I don't ever put them in the dishwasher. I always handwash, and rinse them quickly so they don't stain.

no prob Jag, make sure if you wash them in hot you rinse them in hot too. Fast temp changes will crack them too.  The short period I spent  with Swarovski paid off a little I guess   Grin

Thanks. That part I once learned the hard way pouring hot water into a glass.  Sad
This time I made sure I warmed up the glass before pouring the coffee into it.

I just can't believe I spent $150 bucks on a wedding gift and then had the engraver write "Pam & Bob" when it should've been Bob & Pat  Roll Eyes  (the guy was someone my husband worked with and I hadn't met her).

I wonder if something could be done to disguise it or cover it up  Undecided

Actually PrincessL, I'm really laughing WITH you, not at you.

I just did a similar bonehead move myself. I had designed some drop business cards ...glossy full colour etc. The purpose of these cards is to go in the little slots at the gas pumps... ya know, where people have to stick their credit cards or debit cards to pay for their gas. (Up here, we pump before we pay). Well they can't get their credit cards in because there's already something in there. They have to pull out what's in there first, ...and of course what's in there, is a gorgeous glossy card letting them know they can save money on gas. I'm reaching my target market, precisely at the moment of their greatest pain... when they have to pay the high gas prices. Precisely when they have the greatest desire to save on their fuel costs. Well, like I said, I designed the card, I really got into it, came up with the design, wording, went through about a gadzillion photos before finding the right one.  Made arrangements with gas station owners, as well as pump jockeys all over the city to keep the credit card slots stocked, ...and ordered 1000's of cards.

I got the cards and dropped off boxes at gas stations all over town. About 3 days later, I realized they had made a horrendous mistake on my email address. I was all set to call them up to inform them they had made a mistake, and that they'd just have to do another run, ...when I looked at my final proof that I had approved...  Embarrassed   Needless to say, ...I never made that phone call. {blush}

All I can say is... thank goodness I'm hitting my target market at the precise moment. Despite the screwup on the email addy, people are still figuring out how to reach me, and others simply went to my website and set up a free retail customer account, so they can purchase what they want, whenever they want it. At least I didn't screw up on the urls as well. That would have really sucked.
