Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.


"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   


Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Looking forward to reading the ones I missed. I had to disable outside comments this week due to an infestation of spam. All over the place, even emailing me from AR. I'm anxious to read Barbara's take on it.  Love your Thanksgiving photo...enjoy the weekend. D

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 
The spam has been rampant. I've been deleting spam on my blog posts and reporting spam on the other blogs when I see them. Getting lots of points for reporting spam.  LOL    And, yes, I've been getting the spam emails too. I can't figure out what they think they are accomplishing. What they are doing is worthless to them.
