What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-December 16 to December 22, 2018.

 

I learn something new every day at ActiveRain! With this series, I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that lightbulb moment. It could be something techie, something about Real Estate or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

Not every post makes me sit up and take notice but for some reason, this one brought a big smile to my face.

Your list was so good that I had already commented on at least half or more of them.  And thanks to you, I know that  I missed Anna's birthday. The really sad part is that Nancy and I were at she and Gary's home and I still missed her birthday!  Thank you!

Great blog. One of my friends suggestion on how they write passwords is they write a whole sentence. That's interesting. I have just learned how to do this because it's so important with what's going on out here on the internet.
