    Hello Steve,

    Don't we have a optiboard online store in this forum somewhere that we can post photos to sell or consign?? I have many Chinese manufacturers want to sell their frames here. Any thought you can suggest will be helpful. THanks & best regards.

    Hi Steve,

    I took the Gold paid sub as you suggested. Thanks.

    I have a suggestion and I'd like to hear your opinion.

    I noticed the sub-forums. I could run one for you on beating the Internet-only glasses suppliers and Optician Marketing.

    Right up front, I do have a book coming out on that subject, on Amazon, Barnes & Noble etc., so I would have a vested interest. However, I'm nuts about marketing and could contribute with practical advice, tips and specific answers to specific questions. I would not use it as an advertising platform.

Machol's Grand Unified Theory

by Steve Machol on 05-26-2011 at 03:36 PM
I've done it. Where others before me have failed, I have created a Grand Unified Theory that explains everything. Here it is:

The Nobel Committee knows where to find me. I'll be waiting for your call.

How many more must die needlessly?

by Steve Machol on 09-18-2009 at 01:31 PM
It is approaching six years since we lost Liz and the amount of time does not lessen the profound loss or pain we feel every day. Today CNN published an article about the number of people we lose every tear due to lack of proper healthcare. Liz is one of the ones they profiled.

45,000 American deaths associated with lack of insurance

It is my sincere hope that we can finally provide real healthcare in this country that is not dependent on being rich or lucky enough to be

United States of Oz?

by Steve Machol on 07-26-2009 at 04:51 PM
After suffering through what passes for 'news' over the last few weeks I can't help but wonder when we passed into the Land of Oz?

Democrats have no courage, Republicans have no heart and it doesn't appear that either have any brains.

Unfortunately clicking my sneakers isn't getting me out of this nightmare. :(

With Apologies to Country Joe and the Fish

Fed, Treasury offer 800 billion dlrs more to credit markets

And it's one, two, three
What are we paying for?
Don't ask me I don't give a damn
This is all just another scam.

And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the treasury gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! Kiss your money good-bye.

Why Septembers will never be the same

by Steve Machol on 09-18-2007 at 09:39 PM
Those of you who have been around for a while know that Marlena and I lost our daughter Liz four years ago. This Friday would have been her 30th birthday and that is also four years to the day that the Doctors told us she was lost and gone for good.

Septembers used to be a month of joy and celebration in our house. We had 4 birthdays to celebrate along with many other things. Now Septembers have changed forever. Instead of joy, there is mostly dispair and sadness. In spite of what
