Last Week's Favorites on Active Rain: October 28th - November 3rd

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

With Superstorm Sandy blowing through the week before the national elections, it's been an interesting week.  And here are a few of the interesting blogs I read on my two days off:

Teri Eckholm:  It's Not Your Grandma's Linoleum!  This flooring sounds like an interesting.  And it looks like something that won't look dated in a few years.

John McCormack: Garden Spider Motivational Monday  This is a not so itsy bitsy spider of our childhood!

Debbie Cook:  The Spooky Open House I'll Never Forget - Scared the Heck out of Myself!  This is a good Halloween post!

Hella Rothwell:  I turned down a FREE cruise to the Bahamas today.  Dang, Hella!  Coulda' been a fun trip.

Karen Fiddler:  The One That Got Away?  It's about a house, but I'll be Karen has a fabulous class reunion!

Virginia Kail:  Whatever You Do, Don't Push the Red Button!  Now this is a gadget that could make you feel better showing houses.

Norma Toering:  Palos Verdes or Paris?  Write a post about your recent Paris Paris trip, and if I find it, it'll probably make my list!

Maureen Bray:  Top 10 Most Dog-Friendly U.S. Cities  This was Willie the Labradoodle's pick.  He's lobbying for a relocation to Portland.

Holly Weatherwax:  Getting rid of the Candy!  Holly addresses a very serious problem for many of us.

Charles Buell:  Halloween sure---but why was there a dead body in the return air duct?  This is not a spoof!

That's all for this week.  Next Sunday, I'll be back!

Pat: Thank you for choosing my blog this week. Didn't know until just a short while ago because I was on the road for the last 8 hours between Crescent City CA on the Oregon border and Carmel-by-the-Sea. Even wrote a blog about my thankfulness that it is OVER. But the beautiful scenery along the way makes it all worthwhile.
