fun: DO YOU HAVE A GROWING UP STORY?
- 10/12/15 02:01 PM
I loved to play outside and inside non-stop. Inside involved having those army plastic soldier figures that stand up and you can place them anywhere. The battle commenced on my signal and many were lost until I reset the game. On the outside, I wouldn't come in until I heard my mother calling out, someone saying she is or it was too dark to play anymore
That's how it worked in Brooklyn, New York when I was growing up. You see you not only played in front of your own home, but in others too even around the block. Many times you

- 09/07/15 10:57 AM
It creeps up on you. Its called STRESS, AMBITION and WILLFULNESS and the first casualty is the one from whom it is coming from not going to; a common misconception. Those that have become too entwined in an outcome, goal, want, or situation and find signs of impatience, anger, frustration and vindictiveness with blame, excuses and failure starting to materialize will make good use of this suggestion
MUST BE HEARD TO WORK
This tool is easy implement, works every time and does one very important dynamic that is part of the cure. It doesn't raise your defenses or the other guys when applied. It can be used
fun: POINTS ANONONYMUS RECOVERY PROGRAM
- 06/19/15 10:04 AM
Anyone who had signed up for ActiveRain has been introduced to the world of points. Points for what you might ask? Well, just about everything having to do with the site and your involvement in it. If you get into ActiveRain, they give you points. Of course you get posting, blogging and commenting privileges and more...too
BUDDY, CAN YOU SPARE A DIME?
One of the unfortunate side affects of the point reward system is its addicting qualities. THINK: Same dynamic at the all you can eat places. You eat until you cannot and driving it is ancient DNA which I will refer as the FREE gene. Its
fun: THE WILD CARD OF LIFE
- 04/17/15 08:30 AM
It's adult people and what is in them. Billions of people no two are alike but similar and all are in different places, times, understandings with their own beliefs traveling in a place no one has visited before and trying to figure out navigation as we all go. Go where? Through life!
Why then are we continually amazed, shocked, stunned and thrown off when we meet with each other and find out what is inside folks is not what we were expecting? What is the factor at work here? Is it because we are trying to best each other to get ahead? Or we don't want
fun: ARE YOU READY FOR ANYTHING?
- 01/01/15 06:59 AM
Is the word NEW just a word to you or does it really take hold and apply in the literal sense. Here we have a symbolic and concrete opportunity to start fresh on any subject you choose. What a great way to keep score too. Easy to remember and it is a positive bookmark for the brain. A New Year!
The subjects that a person can visit with, support, activate and work-out in... have no end. Perhaps keeping it to two categories might help. Lets call it personal and business. These two should cover more than enough for the entire year
fun: THIRD ANNUAL EVERYTHING IS THE OPPOSITE POST
- 10/22/14 04:35 PM
That's right! After this paragraph, everything in this post will mean the opposite. Your comments must mean the opposite as well. Do not forget this while reading as some words may sting you but not if you remember its the opposite of the word used and not the words. This is all the warning you get...
HERE WE GO
1. Guys...I sure wish you didn't drop in just now. Let's not do this again
2. This post is too hard to participate in
3. I don't blog for points nor do I like being in the Rain either
4. Google juice will drown you
fun: HAVE YOU NOTICED THIS IN THE RAIN?
- 10/17/14 01:50 PM
No one is going at it with anyone else. No feuds? No tete to tete? No comment to post combat? I know we don't all agree, but have we reached the point where we can share and not take prisoners during the exchange? I haven't seen or heard of anyone declaring war on another here in ActiveRain-land
IS IT ME?
Am I in a rose garden? Do I have on colored shades? How about I am not frequenting the more colorful neighborhoods here in ActiveRain-land or have I lost touch? I can take it! Please tell me that Rainers have learned... HOW... instead

- 09/26/14 12:58 PM
Staying ignorant. NO really. Try not learning, having a good time or making some points. I dare you! It just can't be done. When you come to this site, your little army of skills, talents, abilities and gifts all should stand ready to give as well as receive. Think of it as a Farmers Market where you buy fresh produce only its people and who they are.... that we are sampling
MASTER "LIKE" BUTTON
Most satisfying. It is not practical to tell everyone you run into online how much you appreciate them for there wouldn't be enough time in the day. However, it is

- 09/25/14 06:55 AM
POINTS...? Yes and if you mess with them, there oughta be a law. In real life, they don't mean much but in the world of virtual reality they have standing. They are a close cousin of ranking and ranking has distant family called status and of course status means that you have achieved something. I get it.
For something that doesn't matter.....It walks, talks and acts like something that does...POINTS....Every-time you close an escrow, you should get points...POINTS
1. You should get points for waking up in the morning. Add points if you drink coffee, exercise or wash your car regularly. If you

- 09/21/14 03:53 PM
Stop. Just stop it now! Margaret Rome from ActiveRain? What a surprise. The first time she called me, since I screen anything outside my area code, she ran into my message bank. Un-deterred, she leaves a message (our secret) that has me calling her back right away. Little Margaret Rome. This woman is in the ActiveRain museum next to a head bust of Lenn Harley
HER CHOOSING TO CALL PROCESS
She has called many a Rainer and has taken to putting legs on her blogs and her heart. She is moved by some mysterious force...call it love or phone addiction..it doesn't matter
fun: REAL ESTATE BY THE SONG OF THE SAME NAME
- 09/16/14 01:15 PM
I am going to take some classic well known songs and apply a different meaning to them as it relates to Real Estate. There is no end to this so here are just a few get your chuckles going or perhaps create some of your own. We all know the reoccurring nonsense that shows up in this business. I just put song to it
SONGS OF REAL ESTATE?
1. Rolling Stones: I can't get no Satisfaction....an overpriced seller belting this out after 30 days of no sale
2. Frank Sinatra: Fly me to the moon...a buyer that doesn't like anything shown to them.

No fortune cookie can hold him. Shakespeare was known to study him secretly. The Native American Indians all said that Richfuscious speak with one tongue. The Dali Llama lights a candle weekly for him. He is known for sharing, caring and then dis-appearing. Here are some of his latest various thoughts
Person who not take time enter contest... never know rest
Man who make haste when posting make bad cook in kitchen
He who blog only for points... missed the point
Person who bet on zestimate get back estimate

fun: I WENT TO THE POMONA FAIR
- 09/05/14 06:04 PM
This is not my first time and I know what to expect when I do go. Be prepared to spend your hard earned money and I mean at shocking prices too. The allure of this place certainly dominates the value received. $10 for a turkey leg. A decent sized ice cream or dessert, corn on the cob, BBQ, or any type of food is somehow five to ten times the price?
THE KID SIZE
I went to buy my first goody. It was an Italian ice which is simply delicious and if you add it to a hot day and the sights and sounds, it even

You enter into the main lobby of the ACTIVERAIN-GAIN store and immediately, you see all these specials and discounts full of value. In the center of the first aisle is a sale on ACTIVERAIN-DOLLS. Each one comes with a certificate of authenticity, nicely boxed and reasonably priced. But wait! There is more..much more

- 08/26/14 06:15 PM
Here I am in my bloggin wagon smoking up the ActiveRain-land freeways and I look in my rear-view and there's Tom! Again? How does he get all those points? How does he move up in ranking that fast? Who does Tom know? mmmm. Perhaps he is just at the top of his posting, commenting and blogging game and when I nap, he floors his point machine?
WHAT'S UNDER THE HOOD?
My blogging wagon can move when I put the post metal to the pedal. It has won many a "feature" race and elicited my share of responses. But Tom has a good formula
fun: LETS PLAY ACTIVERAIN JEOPARDY WHERE THE QUESTION IS THE ANSWER
- 08/15/14 11:23 AM
It is a brilliant game idea that involves your thinking in another way to participate in a question and answer forum. The premise is that they give you an answer and YOU must provide the question for the answer. If you do, you get points and money, fame and power follow. During this journey, it also becomes much fun too.

That one has been around for a long while. For those that have not heard it before, the answer was a NEWSPAPER. Notice how I said was. There is a new answer to that question. A POST! You are looking at one now. It is an electronic greeting or type of business card but it is definitely here to stay because it is the way ideas, points, products and services are introduced in cyberspace
DO YOU SPEAK E-TALK?
Posting is a type of e-talk. That's all. It is no different than taking what you would say to a neighbor, friend, family member, a client or

I was overwhelmed and overjoyed when I showed up at this ACTIVERAIN meeting of the greats. Hosted by Pete X, who out did himself, this was one memorable occasion to be a part of. Pete doesn't take NO for answer and so look what happens...? This group shows up and meet, greet, and eat went into high gear
GOOD FOOD GOOD FUN HAS BEGUN
Beautiful meeting place first of all. Maggianos is a good Italian place to visit with. The smell hits you at the front door activating your digestive juices for what is to come. The service is good too and We got
