vision issues forum:
I am looking for suggestions for building participation in the vision issues forum. The forum is a great place to post questions, ask for help or just talk about what’s on your mind. Please e-mail me or post a thread about what you would be interested in talking about on the forum. We could pick a couple days a week for postings and replies making it easier for all to know when new postings would appear in the forum. Let me know. Thanks.
