Last Week's Favorites: January 27th - February 2nd

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

This week there were some great newbies and some darned good oldies as well.  So here is this week's list:

Jay Markanich: Early Rising - How Would You Like An Extra Month Every Year?  Now this sounds like a great idea!

Roy Kelley:  Cleaning An Egged Car in Kentlands  Great advice wherever your car might get egged!

Jonathan Steele:  "Coming Soon" ...coming soon, sketchy style  Jonathan is a new blogger and from DC.  Didn't know we had these bad apples here!

John Kreiss: Desperation Means "No Sale."  OK, so I've been hanging out around the newbies this week.  Welcome John, and I like his post.


Janis Borgueta: “Wonder” without Googling… Is It Possible Anymore?  Sounds like dinner parties I go to!

Brad MacKenzie: Rain, Wind, Crazy Rain -- Coincidence?  There was a lot of this on the east coast last week.

Donna Foerster: What is enough?  Ah, that age old question!  And here I thought that enough was enough!

Mitchell Hall: NYC Loses an Icon - Hiz Honor former Mayor Koch dies at 88  It's one quintessential New Yorker writing about another.


Kathy Godin: Be Careful I Kiss and Tell  This is one we should print out and share with out clients.

Glenn Freezman: My opening night in Stand Up Comedy!  It will make you wonder what his settlements must be like!

So that it for another fun week on Active Rain.  Stay warm, even if you're not in Florida or California, and I'll be back next Sunday with some more.

Pat- I have to echo what Lenn said... I read many posts each day and know that I miss a lot but thank goodness for your post.   I still seem to be missing quite a few.

As always thanks for the great weekly feature and including my post this week. Waiting for an agent that made an appointment to show his buyer my listing. He had no intention of showing up with her - his buyer is 1/2 hour late. So I got caught up on some activerain reading thanks to your wonderful week in review.

I'm always amazed with both yours and Kathy's picks.  Seems like you both had a few in common this week.  Wonder if Glenn does real estate jokes?  ;-)
