What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-June 28  to July 4, 2020

 

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! 

 

 

NOTE: I began this series on a whim on February 4, 2012, and have never missed a Sunday. I’ve written while on my long road trips and even wrote during Hurricane Irma in 2017.  

However… this week there are some posts missing.  My draft for this week is somewhere lost in Cyberville and the blogs from last week are missing from the ActiveRain Blogroll as well. 

I cannot find Grant’s post but if it returns, it will be worth your reading. There were some other good ones I hoped to share with you and should they return, I'll try to include them down the road.



grant schneiderJune 28:  Grant Schneider    How Are We Doing?

We work so hard to get where we are, we often forget that we need to ask this question to those who work with us and to those who use our services. 

 

doug dawesJuly 3: Doug Dawes As I Sit Here Contemplating...

Doug often shares very thought-provoking posts and I love reading what he contemplated.

 

 

ted bakerTed Baker Fourth of July Thoughts

Do yourself a favor and read Ted's post. Put politics aside and open your mind to a well thought out post.

 

marte cliffJuly 4: Marte Cliff Happy 4th of July-Happy Birthday America!

You have to read Marte's story about bringing fireworks to her area. It shows us what any of us can do if it's what we truly want.

 




Don’t forget to check out Carol Williams Second Chance Saturday posts as well!!! I always find several posts that I’ve missed.

Thank you for letting me do what I love doing...learn something new and interesting every day!

Thanks for the inclusion Kathy.

I've had so many things going on this last week that I hardly made it here. I didn't try to post until yesterday, so missed the frustration and lost posts that so many endured. 

I believe computers were created by Gremlins to make us crazy - but we'll all get through it.

Kathy in light of the issue AR had this week you were lucky to even come up with these choices.  Hopefully AR will have things back to normal this week.

Marte Cliff - for the dogs and the animals, the damn things need to be outlawed, all of them...and I mean forever.  Sounds like summer life in the country. :)

Kat Palmiotti you are very welcome! I enjoy searching for them. 

Good point Donald Urschalitz anything can happen in 2020.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I wish I were privy to what went on behind the curtain but I'm not. Last week was frustrating because I never knew when I was going to get the "Heavy workload" noticed.

Carol Williams you are very kind to say that. It's me competing with me basically. I know that the world will go on if I don't publish one of my Sunday posts but it's just me. I had 4 posts in my draft of my weekly post but the whole post vanished from drafts. And even though I could remember the blogger who wrote a post, there's no way for me to find it in the ActiveRain blogroll as it is now.

Grant Schneider your post was in my Google docs draft of my weekly post. The only thing I didn't have was the link to your post, which is missing. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Thank you. I just wanted to try. 

Michael Jacobs I just plug along...no miracles.

Will Hamm I'm keeping my fingers crossed that things will be fixed by Monday. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD it was frustrating not to have been able to highlight more posts.  We got to watch the fireworks that the community behind us fired off. It was fun watching them but the bugs ate me alive. I had to go inside to the good old air conditioning.

Sharon Lee thank you so much!!!! Hope you're enjoying your campground. 

Jeff Dowler, CRS I hope that things will be fixed by tomorrow. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I hope that people didn't lose interest as well. My problem was that even though I had the names of some of the posts I wanted to feature, I was not able to find their post on ActiveRain since June is missing.

Marte Cliff as frustrating as it is, you're right, we all get through this eventually. 

George Souto at least the "overloaded site" thing hasn't popped up today. 

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD our poor Brittany hated loud noise. (a hunting dog who was gun shy!) We were on our boat for the Christmas boat parade when a sailboat with cannons on it went by. And just as it did the cannon went off and our dog raced down into the cabin and wouldn't come up until we docked.

Good morning Kathy Streib,

I always check your "Ah-ha" moments for the week and so appreciate you posting diligently every Sunday! I'm hoping they can recover the lost posts and the posts I had in draft. I spent a lot of time working on them so will be optimistic they can work their magic on a recovery!

Thank you, Kathy Streib.

We are well aware of the loss of Active Rain date over the holiday weekend. Perhaps someone set of a fire cracker in the AR server.
