Last Week's Favorites: August 21st - 28th The Hurricane Edition

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

You have no idea what I had to go through to get this posted!  Yikes!!!

I'm in New York hours after the eye of Irene looked us over.  Perhaps she got pissed off because she was downgraded to a rainy early morning.  Whatever, the wi-fi at the hotel is not working properly.  And my I-Pad may be the only answer to getting this up.   I can’t get it to allow me to upload your photos or even links to the featured posts,  so  I’ll have to add them later. And the list is shorter because it’s taking an hour to upload each freakin’ page.  And my language is getting a bit um, crude.  Anyway, here goes:

1.  Greg Nino:  NEW AR POINT SYSTEM Rolling Out 9-01-2011. Interesting Stuff!  Those of us who are obsessed with points will love this one.


2.  Kristine Ginsberg:  Not so Silent Saturday: Getting That Great Photo  Here are some tips from one of my favorite photo bloggers.


3.  Alan May:  You might actually get PAID for reading this post!  If you are skeptical about making money in the rain, read this one!


4.  Anna "Banana" Kruchten:  Kindergarten Tales of Adventure in Duluth Minnesota!  Cute post with an adorable picture of our Anna!


5.  Scott Hayes:  Sorry But Contracts Do Survive Closing  Here is an important reminder about the contracts our clients sign.


6.  Ellen Caruso:  We Survived! Over 1,000 jars bottled!  What to do with all of those tomatoes you can't give away! 


7.  Chris Ann Cleland:  Earthquake Safety Tips  This one came before the great Hurricane scare roared up the East coast.


8.  John McCormack:  The aromatic roasting of NM chile has now begun. Red or Green?  I really loved John's Christmas tree!


9.  Ron & Alexandra Seigel: Luxury Real Estate Marketing: The Luxury of Consistency and Predictability  Ah!  And one about real estate!


10.  Jay Markanich:  Beauty Is Only Skin Deep   This is trite and true!  And be sure Jay will find whatever the makeup is covering.

I am going to buzz over and read the new points system. That had passed me by completely.

Pat ~ the most important thing is that you are safe.  We can just look these up.  Your picks are worth putting the time and effort to do so.  Stay safe!

Hi Pat, With the fabulous job you always do with this list each, no one should mind that the list is shorter or missing photos. We adore you, love your selections. This storm was a major inconvenience to many so it is certainly great that you even got this much done. Glad you are OK and Hope you had a decent time at least. In October/Nov the new iOS5 comes out and your iPad will be fully functional as far as commenting and uploading posts to ActiveRain. Abe has been beta testing it and said it works great!

Hope you are having a great time.

I am so impressed you got done what you did. It's another great line-up, even without the links and pics. It's not that hard to find these so don't obsess about the linking. :)

Always nice to see the articles you've found interesting and quite a few real gems.  I thought Greg Nino's article was brilliant.
