The kids are back in school and Iím busy tying up loose ends before heading to Atlanta next week for GlassBuild America. As usual, Iím looking forward to seeing whatís new on the floor and catching up with industry friends.

The event should provide a good gauge of the industryís mood. Weíre all making preparations for 2008 and Iím very interested to hear what exhibitors and attendees alike expect for the coming year.

What about youóare you going? Thatís our poll question of the week. And, as usual, Iíd love to hear from you.
Email me and let me know what your company might be looking for as far as new products and equipment as you get ready for 2008.
