As On-Air On-Soaps discussed in its latest Michael’s Blog;  Leaving Llanview: My Final Visit with the Cast of One Life to Live, during the final press day, the actors and actresses, creatives, and behind the scenes personnel gathered on the set for the last cast photo of the series 43-year-run on ABC.

With series creator, Agnes Nixon flanked by Erika Slezak, Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn, and the current cast of the show surrounding them, the photographer took a series of images that would be the final cast photo for One Life to Live’s historic run.

After the jump, watch some of the special moments from the gathering, as the cast looking “mighty fine”, said its farewell as captured on camera in this video clip! Then, let us know your thoughts after watching this heart-tugging scene.  But I am sure you would join us in telling them, “A toast to all of you in Llanview! Thank you for all the years of entertainment and some of the greatest drama ever seen in the genre.  We salute you!”

Heartbreaking…..totally heartbreaking. Been watching since the summer of 1976 and I still can’t believe that on Friday we will say good bye to Lan View. I do not believe in good bye….I’ll be seeing you don’t know how don’t know when….but in the mean time I’ll be missing you. THANK YOU to the wonderful cast….you have made the years enjoyable and those years I will cherish forever and always! Your simply the BEST!

tim trozzo

Great to see the cast together one last time (for now)I was a little disappointed that Patrick Gibbons wasn’t there.Sam was a big part of the show over the past year.

Dee

Amen!!!

ethel

i can’t say anything right now but there are tears streaming down my face …………….

Elise Lubell

Good-Bye OLTL. I’ve been watching since 1970, hardly missing an episode. You are all my favorite characters/actors. I will miss you terribly. I’m only sorry I never got to see any of you at any fan functions. Good luck to you all in all of your future endeavors. I can’t believe it’s almost over. Two more days.

Mary

I love these actors and I’m going to miss OLTL terribly. ABC has made such a huge mistake.

Cole

I hope they make the cast AND crew photo available….

Gloria

I would love to have a poster of these photos

Linda A. Stradella

Thank you for all the wonderful storylines. I started watching this show the first day it aired and I feel like I am losing part of my family. I want to wish all the cast members and crew good luck and happiness in 2012. Maybe one day we will all gather around our TV sets again to enjoy the magic of OLTL …<3 <3 <3

David

Wow, Linda! That’s so amazing that you’ve been watching from the beginning! I feel honored and privileged to have watched since 1993… wish I could have seen it from the beginning, like you!

Leena

Truly there are no words that will suffice in expressing how sad I am!
Thank you to cast & crew! You’ll never truly understand the impact OLTL has had on us, the audience. Here’s to wishing you the best of luck in all your future endeavors! BRAVO!

MaryAnne Robertson

That was so Beautiful !!!! I’m just so saddened & heartbroken , Is it silly of me to be this way ? I’m just loss for words. I’m just so SAD about this whole mess. Thank you all at OLTL Cast & Crew & Writers for all the memories you have given me over the 30 years I’ve been watching !!! You are my second family and always will be !! OLTL will live on forever for me. Thank you also Michael for all you do for the SOAPS !!!

Shrea Kellums

Maryanne,

Its not silly to feel that way , I do too. I have been so sad for the last two weeks terribly. We have been watching it for such a long time. I have been watching it for 27 years and yes they are part of our family…

Gloria

Nope, not silly. I have been really sad since Nov. 23. I had so looked forward to the show moving online or wherever. This is such an unnecessary loss for so many. Can’t imagine what Monday afternoon will be like without this show to enjoy & be excited about every day. Life will go on, but life will not be as sweet, without One Life to Live.

lew

No Maryanne, It is no silly at all. I think all of us are grieving the loss of our show. I started watching OLTL with my mom, when I was a child. I remember Nancy Pinkerton as the first “EVIL” Dorian and Tommy Lee Jones as Mark Toland. Do you guys remember the Siegels, The Halls and the Craigs? This show is rich in history and I can’t believe it is over. Love ya Llanview.

DANESSA

it n really sad to see this show to end wish soapnet will still carry it or have another network pick it up like amw did

Nina

Loved that they took pic of the cast and crew,i will forever be heartbroken

Halee

The whole cast looks great.. I am going to miss this show so much.

Michelle

ABC you should be ashamed of yourself….I truly hope the shows you chose to take OLTL and All My Childrens place totally flops….Why do we need another food show….ugh!!!! Very big mistake!

tkfanalways

I’m glad they put a cowboy hat on the chair for Phil Carey. It is to bad the did nothing to represent the original clint during the picture. And yes they should have put the the actor that played Sam in the picture.

Thanks Michael!!!

Nora Westcott
One afternoon in July 1968, I was at my friend Rose’s house in Lawrence Park, PA where I grew up. Rose’s mom told us there was a brand new story beginning in a few minutes and did we want to watch it with her? We said yes. Watching that first episode of OLTL is one of my “Kodak” moments. The image of Rose’s squeaky-clean living room, the black and white portable tv, the beige walls, and brown-tweed sofa is burned in my brain. We were introduced to the Lord family, and I was hooked. I couldn’t watch during the school year because VCRs hadn’t been invented yet, but I watched during school breaks and summer vacations. I married after graduating from high school and had my three children closely together. While they were small, I’d put them in for their naps after lunch, and it was a welcome break to watch my stories while they slept. I began working after my youngest entered school. I worked evenings so I was still able to follow OLTL. When I went to college, I worked full time, pursued an honors degree in English writing (won a full summer scholarship to Oxford), and had three active children to raise. During those years, I taped my story. Did I see every episode? No, I didn’t. After graduating I won a Teaching Assistantship and began working on my Masters. I worked part-time, went to school and taught full-time. I continued to record OLTL. When my brain was fried from reading rhetorical theory or literary criticism articles or couldn’t write another word for the countless papers due each week, I’d stop, watch my story, then return to my work refreshed. After earning my Masters, I began teaching English at the university level. I watch OLTL everyday. It’s on while I critic student drafts, grade papers, and read journals. I’m not sharing this because I think I’m special. I don’t. I’m writing about my accomplishments to try to break the stereotype that the only people who watch the soaps are bored, uneducated, unemployed, fat housewives who have nothing better to do. Millions of us are educated, hard-working people who just happen to love daytime drama. The majority of soap fans lead stressful, busy lives. They turn to the stories because they can let go of their problems and immerse themselves in pure, stress-free entertainment. This genre provides a constant in their chaotic lives, particularly now when so many people have lost their jobs, are worried about losing their jobs, and/or facing foreclosure on their homes. As I write this, tears are streaming down my face because I feel I’m losing my friends. Over the decades, many friends have come and gone from Llanview, PA. The Wolecks and Vegas come to mind, but the show introduced many other new friends over the years. I am grieving, yes grieving over the loss of Vicki, Clint, Dorian, David, Blair, Todd, Rex, Gigi, Shane, Renee, Nora, Bo, Star, Jack, Sam, Jessica, Natalie,… Read more »
Faith

I completley agree with everything you have said! I haven’t watched since the very first episode because I was not born yet, but I have been watching since I was born as every generation in my family has watched. I grew up watching both OLTL and AMC and like you would watch during summer vacation and breaks from school. I started recording when I was in high school. I was 15 and finally got a vcr to go with the tv in my bedroom. I haven’t missed one episode since. All through high school, college, working while putting myself through college I took my breaks by watching the soaps. Then I became a mom and I currently stay at home to raise my two boys. When my first was born, this was the time I fed him his bottle and put him down for his nap. As he got older he started to watch a little with me and began to understand that mommy’s soaps are All My Children and One Life To Live. I had hopes when I had my other son a few months ago that the same would happen with him. I was hopeful to pass them on to a 4th generation to watch.

They have been my escape and I agree that soap fans do watch soaps to escape from all the everyday stress of their lives. Soap fans don’t want talk shows or reality tv! Why would we want reality tv when we watch soaps to escape from reality?! I know that I will not be watching any show that replaces my beloved shows and I also don’t want to buy anything from any of the companies that will sponsor them!

Judy

Nora, Like you I started watching from the very first episode. My friend Dolores and I would rush home from school to watch our soaps. I have watched for 44 years. I went to college, raised a family, held a job and even when I was “just a housewife” I was never bored cause I had my stories. They were always something to look forward too and “time for me”. I am heart-broken to lose them and also, SO angry with ABC for their lack of regard for the fans that made their daytime programs a hit for so many years. Soaps are as American as apple pie and baseball. There will never be another show that has the longevity these soaps have had. No, no one will be rushing home or recording The Chew or The Revolution to watch later. No one will care if they miss these shows…that’s if the even make it a year, which I doubt they will. How sad that the network cares more for money than for the people who have made them what they are. They have killed the genre and broken the hearts of so many.

We will forever miss you all at OLTL. Thank you all for ALL the joy you have brought us for so many, many years.

Shrea Kellums

Amen

Thats all I have to say

Diane

Nora, you have said so well what so many of us are feeling. When I worked at a grocery store, during lunch a group of us would gather and we would discuss Erika and Jackson from AMC and Asa, Clint and Vicki from OLTL……we would give our viewpoints on the various storylines and try to guess what would happen next…. Fridays would always leave you hanging and waiting for Monday…I seriously doubt anyone will be sitting on the edge of their chairs for The Chew or Revolution and whatever failing replacment program ABC comes up with after taking away our other families. They have totally destroyed daytime TV. I have loss another family member and I am so sad. These soaps are what got so many of us through our own problems and dramas in our lives. For a few hours every day we could forget “us” and get so immersed in our “other families” which helped us to continue on. For over 40 years this has been a part of my life …..and sadly now its gone. Please put together some DVDs to showcase One Life and All My Children…….Bless you Agnes Nixon for your vision and your story telling. To the whole cast and crew and everyone connected with One Life to Live…..thank you, thank you and thank you again for all the wonderful memories. I will miss you all.

Melanie

I feel like I’m losing my Family members..ABC your making a HUGE MISTAKE….OLTL you will be Missed!!!!!

Melanie

P.S. after OLTL airs Friday I WILL NOT watch ABC,DISNEY, ESPN…..

leah

mighty fine looking cast. Best wishes to you all… Maybe we’ll get a movie or a book out of you all to tell us how it all ends….

Blake

That was really sweet to see. Makes me both happy and sad. These people should not be losing their jobs. But at least the show is going off while they had great stories still.

Caitlin Gresta

So sad to see them all together for the last time!

Suzanne Melton

I am sure the video would have been great if I could have see it. I heard it but the video part o f it didn’t work. I am going to miss OLTL. I have been watching from the beginning and I feel like a part of my family is dying. Best wishes to all the fine actors from OLTL

Sharon

I am very disappointed that this show is ending we all there has to be away to keep it.There are all those reality shows that I don’t know who watches,, there are other networks , One life to live I am so sorry to see you all go ….Hope you all fine bigger and better things,,, I am going to miss you .. Make a new Show Life lives on in Llandview…or just Llandveiw

Jackie C.

Thank you for the many hours of soap opera enjoyment. The cast and storylines of OLTL have been superb. I will miss the show . The cast picture was a rea; treat/

Brad

ABC is robbing the general public of what they want. I no longer trust them, even if they are moving characters to GH, it is only so they don’t lose THAT audience. I cannot bring myself to watch, sorry. No Erika, no Robert Woods, no Hilary…no me!

1loveabcsoaps

Stephanie

That was so beautiful!

moneek77

So sad 🙁 Agnes Nixon looks so sad I don’t even think she smiled. Twice in a few months to say Good-Bye to what she has created has to take a toll

Carol

What a beautiful shot of the cast and crew… OL has been a part of my life since 1969 and I can’t imagine it no longer being on. Thank you for the many wonderful years of entertainment…You will be missed…

Cindy

I WANT A PICTURE_ and, cast- THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES- as BOB HOPE once said, CINDY

Christine

How sad, but the crew & cast are a class act. Made me tear up! You suck ABC powers that be, what a HUGE mistake!

Dee

Like many here,I ‘m speechless and yet sadden that such a wonderful program has to come to an end. I have enjoyed and so use to watching you all that I had to rethink the times when making doctor appointments, forgetting you no longer will be around.

To each of you, to those who are newly experience and those who spent the last 43 yeas on OLTL….all I can say is, God bless each of you and your families. May God direct and lead you to the right new acting jobs. May any new parts be a blessing from God. And through the many paths we walk upon take to a much better place one day.

You have inspired millions of people. You have entertain them with your truest dignity. We are sadden you have to leave ….but unfortunately things have to come to an end even if we hate it and refuse to accept it.

You will be greatly missed, not only as characters of a show, but as your fans as an actor/actress, and as individuals for who you truly are..

So, at this moment, I salute you …& applaud.

…and to the crew, bravo!!!!

…and yes, ABC, you made the biggest mistake by shutting down our soaps. You should be so ashamed of yourselves. for unemploying so many, and for undoubtedly ending shows that are truly admired by millions.

Safe hugs to each of you!

Linda

I feel like I am losing a part of my FAMILY. I am devastated ABC is taking OLTL off. I have been a loyal FAN for 35 yrs. When I worked all day I would tape OLTL and GH to watch when I got home from work. I cannot express how UN Happy I am with ABC. I will MISS you all soooo much. XXXXX’s

Sheila A

Like viewing a family album. Best wishes to all people of LLanview PA
TV at it’s finest!
I will miss each of you, daily.

Monique

ABC made a biggest mistake ever. I have been watching since 1991 then stopped watching it but I watched it again in 1996. I love that show so much. It won’t be the same ever again.It was the best show ever. I will be disappointed that the show will be gone ait will not be the same ever again. Love that show so much.

Monique

I do really miss that show so much. It won’t be the same no more. It was a heart broken and sad to see that show been cancelled. It is so sad to let them go. I have been watching it for a long time. I think I started watching it since 1990 then I stopped watching it since 1995. I began watch it again. I remember all the plot of the show. That show One life to Live is a wonderful show I ever I watch. I will be terribly miss that show. I will be missing the show so much. I will be disappointed that the show will be gone. It is the best show ever. It will make me sad to see the finale will be gone. It is one of favorite show ever.

Terry Ceparano

Thanks for that picture. My heart is breaking as the time nears. I’ve watched since 1972 & so this IS my family who will be missed more than words can say. I’ve been lucky enough to meet a large majority of these actors & actresses & these are memories & photos I’ll treasure forever. Goodbye OLTL!!

Chriss

Reading all the comments above, made me cry because I feel the same as everyone else. I, too, have watched OLTL since day one. As someone else said, did I see every episode, no. But over the years there are very few that I missed. Of all the ABC soaps, OLTL was always my favorite. I remember Vinnie Wolek, Tony Lord, Jennie, Brad, Karen, and so many more that have gone. As I said….I’ve watched forever. Now I couldn’t be more sad….or cry more or harder….if I lost my whole family. This is devastating to me. I’ve been crying since last week’s shows. I cry when I read articles about OLTL. This is the show that has made me laugh and cry and sympathize and always treated social issues with class and true information. And it’s made me wink at the tv so many times over the years at references to the past that only longtime viewers would pick up on.

I’m thrilled beyond words that Kassie, Roger (welcome back. oh how I’ve missed you!), Kristen and Michael will be moving to Port Charles. My only hope/wish now is that there will be more to follow.

Good luck and God Bless the whole cast, and all the crew and writers. May this door closing be the opening of a window for you.

Karen M

Ms. Nixon THANK YOU!! Thank you for filling the last 33 years of my life with fun, drama, angst, tears, smiles, applause and a family that I will NEVER forget.
Ms. Slezak – thank you for Victoria Lord Buchanan (as she will only be known to me as!)
Mr. Woods – thank you for Bo Buchanan and for making it nearly IMPOSSIBLE for me to find a decent man that measure up to Bo!
Ms. Smith – thank you for Nora Hanen Gannon Buchanan! An inspiration for me to be as strong as I could be and make it OUT of a really bad situation my life had become stuck in.
Mr. VerDorn – thank you for Clint Buchanan! Although Clint Ritchie will always be dear to my heart – you breathed a new life into Clint and took him to places we never imagined.
Thank you to the entire cast and crew over the past 43 years for your dedication, your devotion, your love of your craft that gave us some of the best (and worst) hours of our lives!
I am writing this with tears streaming down my face as I feel as if I am eulogizing a dear dear deparated friend, but in a way, I guess I am. I love One Life to Live. It was more than “a TV show” or “A soap” it was it’s own living being. And that is because of all of you that it lived.
May God bless you all in all you do and keep you safe. Until we meet again.
PS – Please keep watch over them all Mr. Carey – I’m sure Asa would’ve pulled that 12 guage on Brian Frons faster than he could say, “You’re outta the will!”

Here’s what you do when you don’t find the rainbow’s end
This time
Here’s where you go when it looks like the rain won’t end
Don’t cry

There’s always tomorrow, where you can have a second chance
And after tomorrow, all that you have to remember

Here’s what you do when you think nobody cares
For you
Look in my eyes and see there’s an answer there
It’s true

We’ll find tomorrow, a place for us, I know because…
Time only knows
How long forever’s going to last
And we don’t even need to ask

Let’s live today
And find someone to share it with
‘Cause we only have one life to live

Don’t cry

I’ll give you tomorrow
Let me be the one you share it with
And each day that follows
‘Cause we only have one life to live

Karen: This was lovely. It brought tears that are strolling down my eyes as I type this. I like how you addressed the longstanding Player’s….. in perfect order. U even added a touch of Humor and added Ole Asa in…., which he belongs. LOL I ONLY wish you wouldn’t have forgotten Dorian. I’m heartbroken that she isn’t in the final cast picture. I hope they picture shop her and place her in. She was certainly a dedicated player of the cast and beloved and thanked by Erika Slezak each time she won that Emmy. Thank you for ending your post with the appropiate ending of OLTL. Maybe you could throw a line of credit to Robin Strasser as a P.S.

Diane

I agree and thank you for how beautifully you stated what so many are feeling.

Pat

I too have watched OLTL since high school days, 40 years ago. I remember fondly Vicki and Meredith and Dr. Joyce Brothers. Joe Reilly, Karen Wolek, Vinnie and Wanda Wolek, Mark Toland (Tommy Lee Jones) and of course Dorian Lord. I could go on and on. It’s shameful that the network couldn’t work this out and find a way to continue scripted daytime television. Both AMC and OLTL shold have had a place on network TV but greed won in the end. My best wishes to the cast and crew, I’ll miss you.

luane raudabaugh

How nice to be able to see this and see everyone interacting with each other. Agnes, Erika and Kassie all looked like it was very hard to put on a happy face. I have watched this show since it began with the original “ikki Vicki” and am so happy to have been able to see Erika carry on this role-fab actress! I have enjoyed every single show and actor/actresses and truly feel honored to have been able to watch the best soap opera ever made! OLTL will forever be in my heart! The best of everything to all of you-you all deserve it so very much!

barb rose

As many of us I will not be watching the replacement shows for all my children and especially one life to live. the new shows are all of the same old excessivness this country is being lend into. How many self improvement and food shows do we need in this day and age when so many people can barely put bread on their tables let alone indulge in your self pleasing greed. One live to live took us out of the problems of these times, and escape the harsh realities in our lives. These new show are a slap in the face to all the poor souls just tring to surive.I pray they all fail I know I will not be tunning in. God help us all! One Life To Live you will surely be missed I love all of the actor on this show they are the best!!!

Erika

I loved the video of the final cast photo shoot. I am so sad to see my last Soap go off the air, first AMC and now OLTL. It is getting so close to the last day and I am starting to get sad & mad all at the same time, lol. They both are my family of sorts over the years of watching them over my last 40 years. Goodbye & R.I.P AMC & OLTL. But I can say that I was happy to hear about Blair, Todd, Star & John going to GH which I usually do not watch but sad to hear that Jack, Sam, Natalie, & Liam will not be Joining them. Which I do not understand why are Jack & Sam not gonna exist anymore? And why put John & Nattie back together at the end if they are not gonna be a family??? I love you all & I am gonna miss u all so much.

Marie

I am so sad it is the last week. I was sad about AMC and now OLTL. I unwind after work watching soaps. Definite void. Have started taping Young and the Restless and General Hospital. ABC is no longer on my friend list.

Mary

I have watched One Life 40 years,named my son Clint ,after Clint Ritchie,Im so mad,Im losing my family,shame on you ABC,wished so much another network would pick up the show ,this week I can’t stop crying!,i will not watch ABC again Ill always treasure my issue of episodes with Asa and Renee on the cover,25 years ago,miss you all so much,I hope to see some of my family on other shows ,but breaking this show up is hard on me,,love you guys<3<3<3

Cathy M.

So nice to see the whole cast together for one last time. I have been watching OLTL for 30 years…I will miss it dearly. Good luck to all the cast and crew, and thank you sooo much for all the wonderful, entertaining shows!!

Janet

Best of luck to the cast and crew of OLTL! You will be missed terribly. I have watched this show since the mid 70’s, you have been a huge part of my life. Thanks for the memories!

JANICE

I would like to say it is a sadden time to see this soap to come to a farewell. i started watching this soap when i was 9 with my grandmother. yall became a part of our family . we shed tears and we laughed at some of the scenes . but yall came in our house every day as clock work. never missed espoide .if i wasnt able to see it on the giving days i taped it and watched later. but i grew up sharing each special moment with everyone there. i am so upset about losing my show . hoping that in some given way it could be saved. hopefully some where months ahead maybe there will be a way for it to come back and the cast that is there now will come back cuz as Agnes Nixon always said Ya’ll are All My Children. even if yall are from One Live To Life. i just dislike this having to come to end but i am hoping some way yall come back . miss yall. i will not be tuning in to watch the replacement in the time slot. of yalls hour of 1pm to 2pm

David

I’ve watched One Life to Live since 1993. I was 13 years old at the time and didn’t have any idea of who I was or what I wanted to be. I’ve changed a lot since then and have had many ups and downs. I feel honored and privileged to have spent 18 years with the citizens of Llanview. They feel like my second family and aside from my family, have been the most consistent thing that I have had. There will be a void when it is gone, but I know that I’ll look back and cherish the one hour a day that I got to spend with such interesting and complex characters. Thank you OLTL!!

Michele

I’ve been watching OLTL for 30+ years! It’s my 2nd family! I will miss all of the actors, story lines, the whole show! Shame on you ABC for taking off these shows that are special to so many people! I will NOT watch The Chew, Revoluation, whatever it’s called! I hope ABC realizes it’s mistake once these new shows tank & BRING BACK OUR SOAPS!!!

Bittersweet moments indeed. OLTL has been part of my life for 30 year. It’s been with me in good times & in bad. It was always a comfort to come home to. I love it & I will cry my eyes out once it finally ends 🙁 Long live the Manning’s!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Welcome To The New Michael Fairman TV: A Note From Michael Fairman

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.

With gratitude,

XO

Michael
