Last Week's Favorites on Active Rain: January 5th-11th

Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

Last week, the bloggers who were shivering in the deep freeze of the polar vortex have been reading the Florida and California and Hawaii bloggers with envy.  And this week's list has a little of each, starting with -

Andrew Mooers:  What If You Swapped, Traded Real Estate Markets for a Week? Sorry, Andrew!  Not trading with you this week!  Brrrrrr!

John Anello: Circuit Breakers: What To Do WhenTey Trip  A must read for when all your space heaters start to pop.

Chelsea Robinson:  What Do Buyers Want Me to Do?  I was surprised at this California Association of Realtors survey results.  

Dick Greenberg:  The Goose Meet-up  The picture and the story both made me smile.  

Mathew Enger:  How to Find a Lost Cell Phone in 2014  Thank heavens for Find My Phone on iCloud!

Gabrielle Kamahele Rhind:  If You Are Going To Put Lipstick On A Pig- Make Sure It's The Right Color  Good advice.

Marnie Matarese: I "Ate the Ugly Bug Early" and it Really Paid Off!  More great advice!

Charles Buell: So you think you want an On-Demand water heater? Well, gee!  I did until I read this.

Donna Bacher:  Dear Facebook, I'm breaking up with you  Oh, dear!  Not another breakup!

And Rebecca Gaujot: The iPad, a funny video  This really, really is a funny video.  I laughed myself silly.

So that's it for now.  Hope you all stay warm next week, even if you don't live in Florida, California or Hawaii!  And I'll see you  next Sunday, so blog on!

Thanks for the picks Pat.  Rebecca's post was a nice call out.  It was hilarious.  And it's a nice pairing to Richard Weisser's feature about the "pen"

Thx for putting this list together.  So glad you included John in here.  I reblogged one of his.  I met him in December and I think he's going to be very successful here.
