A Simple Guide To Home Ownership - 07/29/10 09:07 PM
A Simple Guide To Home Ownership The first step to Home Ownership is to meet with a local Real Estate Agent. A good agent will listen to your needs and concerns, will put you in contact with local lenders, will help you seek out the properties that will suit your needs and your budget and will guide you through the entire process from searching for your dream home to making it yours at closing. Your agent will protect your interests along the way. Find an agent that you’re comfortable with, someone who will listen and someone who will communicate with you (2 comments)
PodCamp comes to Connecticut - 07/27/10 07:56 PM
PodCamp comes to Connecticut in October this year! Since stumbling into ActiveRain a few years ago I have had the opportunity to travel to many great events. It was only fitting that my first experiences included a great AR Party in NYC and a follow-up function a few months later that got a bit wilder in a Princeton Bar. Since that time many from my crowd including me ventured out of the Rain to experience the world of REBarCamp,Twitter and Facebook where some honed their social networking skills and others spent hours playing games. After trips to Philadelphia and several outings (5 comments)
Camping on the Boston Waterfront - 07/27/10 09:03 AM
Rainy Days and Mondays tend to be gloomy but the sunshine was bright in Boston as RainCamp descended on Seaport World Trade Center. My day started shortly after 3am in Maine as we packed up the cabin and cut our weekend getaway short to spend the day at RainCamp. The first obstacle appeared shortly after 5am when I was dead-ended by a train stopped on the tracks in the backwoods of Maine. After sitting for several minutes I u-turned and it took me a half hour to get to the southbound highway. 3-1/2 hours later after sitting in Boston traffic for (10 comments)
ActiveRain is the site I credit most with getting me involved in all aspects of Social Networking. Back in the early days I'd wake before dawn and anxiously head for my computer to review comments and stop by to visit new posts from friends. Not sure when I actually became aware of the now household names like Facebook & Twitter but I'm pretty sure it would have been via a blog posted on ActiveRain. When I heard RainCamp was coming to Boston I was instantly interested though logistically juggling priorities to attend Camp was not my (11 comments)
Is it really summer fun? - 07/19/10 02:05 PM
I started running about 4-1/2 years ago and the 5k race was my area of concentration for the first few years and continues to be a fun race to test fitness. Most events take place on weekend mornings but Middletown is home of the Citizen's Bank Not your Typical 5k that takes place on a weeknight. This year would be my 5th year of participation in the event which has certainly lived up to it's name of not being a Typical 5k. Most mature races seem to stick with their certified course year after year allowing particpants to judge there results (4 comments)
Join me for some Time Traveling... - 07/14/10 01:46 PM
The recent termoil created during the past few weeks due to the RainMaker policy revisions got me back into visiting ActiveRain and although times have changed many familiar faces still remain. The top two positions in Connecticut are the same although George Souto has landed at Number One and Nima has been stripped of his title. I on the other hand have been slip sliding away from my location at number three and the idea of gaming the system to regain my former location is not very appealing. Nostalgia is fun so after discovering my slide down from third I wondered (9 comments)
Another one bites the dust... - 07/05/10 08:39 PM
Depending on who you talk to you may get the impression all is rosey in the Real Estate world but I tend to call it as I see it. Some people prefer to be shielded from reality and if you are one of those you may want to move along quickly. Truth is... The Real Estate market is FANTASTIC or SUCKS depending on your needs. The bad news first... many sellers that purchased within the last 5 years are having a difficult time. Tonight I just returned from one of those listings. About 6 years ago when the market was hopping (2 comments)
