The Reaction to the Top 10

First off thanks for making last week's Top 10 post my most read posting ever. That was really cool and a great way to start 2007. However, that list did spur controversy. What controversy you ask? Well evidently I missed a handful of items that people felt should've been on the list. So here they are...

(And yes, these would be better on the message board or as "comments" but we are still working on the cyber-shyness of our industry. Hey no matter how you communicate, don't stress it, keep it coming!)

Missing items:

1. Decorative Glass- I got hammered on this by several people, actually. Basically, the tone was "How could you miss this?" Well, honestly, I did consider it, and it could've been on the list for one big reason. 2007 will be the first full year of "legitimate" Decorative Glass. What does that mean? Well GANA now has a decorative glass division and that move alone will help take deco from the back room to the front page.

2. Labor needs- I think it's legit, but to me its not getting the drumbeat that it was getting a few years ago.

3. Scratched Glass/Scraper usage- A window cleaner friend of mine wrote me on this and there's been PLENTY of debate here. I think I'm going to save my thoughts for a future entry.

4. Phone Scam- Yep, I missed it- I mean that Phone Scam that is hitting glass shops everywhere is simply nuts. I feel horrible for everyone who has been caught in that nightmare. As if you don't have enough to worry about everyday in business- now you have these shenanigans.

5. USGlass Blogs and Message Boards- Geez, wonder where that came from. But you know USGlass was the one that made USGNN a must read each and every day- and slowly but surely the message boards and blogs will be "must reads" too.

Other than that, I had plenty of comments on the China angle. Some amazing horror stories were passed on to me, including one company that went to China for material because it was cheaper- and the Chinese company eventually went around that company and sold the customer direct. Sickening stuff.

Outside the top 10 stuff...

The warm weather- what effect will the mild winter, so far, have on the normal cycle of glazing in the East and Midwest? Normally January and February are the worst months, but will that change now?

The Snow- The flip side is poor Denver that has gotten enough snow for the entire country. Now I'd assume that is a region that will have a bumpy start to 2007.

As for the video of the week... when I was taking my whacks about missing items from the top 10, I ran into this pretty cool video...



Note- some people have noted that the videos have not worked for them. I am working on that and apologize.

Have a good one... and let me know if anyone sees the Ohio State football team... They are due in Arizona for a game Monday the 8th.

Hi Blog mate!!

I hope you don't mind me blogging anonymously like this. I thought the blog was really cool. I am also into casino grand online.

I found another interesting website blog at http://gamblingwebsites.blogspot.com. I am constantly looking for ways of making extra money online and think that online gambling could be a way of doing that.

Cheers for now and keep up the good work!
