Real Estate Agent with Resort and Second-Home Specialist REALTOR Broker #21673

Ron and Alexandra Seigel are a big presence here in ActiveRain.


Offering their professional experience and plenty of good information - sometimes with a healthy dose of humor - their blogs and comments have been great reading for me since I became an active member over a year ago.


Saturday they shared some BIG news.


They've earned over 2 million points!

On an another gorgeous cool and sunny morning, we took off for the Santa Barbara Market.  Persimmons are known as the "food of the gods."  From our standpoint having been tricked into tasting an unripe persimmon once, we appreciate them for their color, and not so much their taste.  The ones  pictured above can be eaten when ripe, and do not make your mouth feel like it has been turned inside out!  When cut horizontally, they have a beautiful star shape.


This is the lethal one, you have to wait till it gets to a mushy state before you even dare to eat it.  It is called the Hachiya Persimmon.


With this post, we pass the 2 Million mark on Active Rain.  It has been a delightful journey, and we appreciate the conversations, the posts we have read, and the people on this platform.  This is the best real estate platform in the social media universe.


Wishing you lots of Saturday Smiles,

Hi Kathleen Luiten ,  Ron and Alexandra Seigel  always have interesting blogs to share. We don't have any persimmons here in northern Indiana, so it's interesting to learn about the rest of the country and what they have to offer.
