The Rain Bucket - 1.17.14

What an exciting weekend we have upon us.  All of here at AR HQ's are decked out in blue in anticipation of the Seahawks game on Sunday.  There's just something about a city's spark when one of their sports teams is making it happen. A sense of community and pride shine from windows, cars, conversations in line at the grocery store. Anybody who lives in one of the four cities playing this weekend knows what I'm talking about.

Want know what else I'm talking about? The fabulous Rainers of course! This week we have another set of superstars to highlight.

 

Inman Love
Francine Viola's post on staying afloat during a crisis made it onto Inman this week.  So did Larry Lawfer's top ten reasons to get out of the business.  Congrats you two!

The Cat's Meow
What a wonderfully titled post, You Put the Litterbox Where?!?  I admit it, Karen Feltman got me to click too.  The title alone brought in the traffic. If you weren't one of the 2,800 that clicked and read the post I recommend you do, you'll be surprised where they put it. 

How About Them Apples
Shout out to our own Elizabeth Weintraub for being a frequent contributor to About.com.  Looks good Elizabeth!

Where the Sun Does Shine
Bridget McGee was full of rays as she was quoted in the Baltimore Sun.  Her energy and expertise are shining bright.  Way to get out there Mortgage Mama!

Kerrie I LOVED this post!  Can you believe that I hadn't previously been following you??  What a gross oversight.  Thank you for compiling these articles.  I learned a lot from the writers.

Good Morning, Kerrie.  As I glanced through Today's DailyDrop the word "Seahawks" jumped off my monitor.  I'm down here in 49er country and will be attending 49er party tomorrow.  There's lots of 9er's pride down here and we're mad the seahawks wouldn't sell any tickets to CA residents.  But, I have a question for you; What is a seahawk, anyway?  Can you eat them?  Baked, broiled or roasted?  (Just trying to tease you, Kerrie.  I wish your team well. Not.)

I'm happy to see our local AR talent being featured nationally.

What a great game.  I love Sherman's comments at the end.  Say it like it is, is refreshing and needed.  The Seahawks have a swagger that a love.  I will be cheering for them all the way to the Super Bowl.
