I killed the yeast!

Yesterday I tried another recipe from Bernard Clayton's book that required warmed milk, but I think I got the milk too warm.  I didn't check the temperature, went ahead and added it to the yeast mixture and I got NO RISE!!!  I was SO mad at myself for wasting all that flour and yeast.  AAAHHH!!!  A hard lesson learned!!
Don't kill your yeast with too much heat!  And it was kneaded so beautifully, too!  I will try that recipe again, and we're out of bread, but I was too depressed to try again and today my car needs to be cleaned.  And truthfully, I'm still recovering from the trauma.  I should have taken a picture to show you.
