happy: Has anyone noticed old Activerain members coming back? - 07/21/15 01:08 PM

Lately Vegas Bob has noticed older members posting again and quite a few new members joining the Activerain network.
And I think the number one reason is because Ben Kinney now owns the Activerain network, and he brought Bob Stewart back.
Has anyone else noticed older members blogging again or more often then before?
Has anyone else noticed quite a few new members at the Activerain network?
What ever the reason may be for some old friends and faces appearing once again at Activerain and the new faces jumping aboard, Vegas Bob likes it.

We as members don't have to agree with every ones posts, opinions, etc at Activerain.
So that being said, let's do our … (43 comments)

With temperatures in Las Vegas reaching 105, 110 & 115, it's a little toasty outside to be showing homes.

Another bonus about Alaska this time of the year is 22 hours of sunlight to play ;o)
