Love meeting with other ActiveRain Members

Our virtual friends are not always are real friends. Sometimes we talk and talk online, but never really make the effort for some 'Old School' networking... you know, face-to-face.

Last week I had the pleasure of having lunch with two Activerain Members. Kim Daugherty and Laura Barron. They are Broker/Owners of D&B Real Estate in McKinney Texas. AND... they are sisters!

Here we are after lunch in front of their office, which is located in the center of McKinney Square. Very nice location and surrounded by lots of shops and restaurants. We ended up eating at Square Burger. This was my first experience with Square Burger and it was very very tasty! I highly recommend giving it a try. And hey... while you are there, stop by and say hello to Kim and Laura!

I had met Kim previously at the last two Dallas Raincamps, but had not had the pleasure of meeting Laura until Friday. Apparently they were at the Houston Raincamp, but I didn't see them. Did you see them there? I think they flew under the radar during that trip...probably trying to avoid Greg. Nah, Im sure thats not true.

When is the last time you got out and met some fellow "Rainers"?

In the past two weeks.  I offered to stop to visit anyone near I-10 in Texas, but had no takers.   I was in San Diego and Tucson... now I'm back home, but need to visit with some of my local AR peeps.

Loreena - Ummm... I saw you there also. :-)  I just didn't see them.

Donna - That made me LOL. I didnt know they had STAR shapes. HA.

I've made some great friends via Activerain, Facebook and Twitter and I love networking. Some of these friendships are so much more than just online friendships, they are lifelong ones.

Scott - I read the post from Donna, which is how I came across your blog. Whenever there is an active blogger in Texas, I like to check them out. Glad Donna had a good turnout.

Cara - Mike has been around a little while. He's a good guy.

Todd - They certainly can be. I've met a handful of people on Twitter in person, and a little more on Facebook since Im more active there.

Just not in Texas John.  I did meet up with some in California and with Mike Jones for lunch in Arizona.  Lots of fun.  Mike was a really nice guy and recommended an awesome spot for lunch.  Perhaps some future vacations we will have more time.

Kim - You have been a little busy, so its understandable. The Chili Cook-off should be a lot of fun. Dont forget that the MC is going to be CJ when he gets back from Disneyland.
