Take the Challange Make a Call Write a Post

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A


Today I took the challenge I made a call. I have been reading some wonderful posts by a few members and thought I would see if I could write a post on Active Rain. I picked up the phone and called Endre Barath, Jr. no one answered I left a message .

Quite frankly I have been so impressed by some of the members posts and disappointed by the lack of posts I decided to jump in myself. I do understand that Active Rain has been down quite a bit lately and points and posts have disappeared but I do still love my friends in the Rain and refused to give up.

My phone rang and there was a return call from Endre .We chatted about COVID 19 and how our business was. We talked about cooking something we both love to do  . Endre lives on one side of the country and me on the other yet both cities experienced riots and looting. Before we knew it time passed quickly his phone was beeping and so was mine.  We decided to end the call I hope he also writes a post as I did not even remember to mention the challenge as I was so glad to speak with him and enjoyed our call so much

I really hope that more members Take the Challange Make a Call Write a Post 

Let's make it Rain  pick up the phone

Hello to Ron and Alexandra Seigel  and Michael Jacobs ! I (Diane) just had to say how much I enjoyed spending time with the 3 of you also - Ron and Alexandra I went to the local Honda dealership and bought my car after that Sunday brunch 5 years ago; and Michael, I was so looking forward to enjoying the opening of the Vromans Bookstore Wine Bar until Covid interrupted everyone's plans.  Endre always speaks highly of his AR family and I hope to meet more of you one day.  I can attest that I don't think he'll get on a Zoom call

Endre Barath, Jr. (Diane) - who would have ever anticipated something worse than some spilled wine and books, huh?

Endre Barath, Jr.

Michael Jacobs And spilled wine (!) and on books (!) would have been bad enough! Miss you, and hope we will be at the Vroman's Wine Bar (which is officially named "The 1894") all together soon! Diane

I have tried to connect with Endre Barath, Jr. a couple of times when I was in California but have yet to meet it.  It might not be meant to be, haha.

Remember when you and I went for ice cream together when I visited YOUR city?

Luckily I enjoyed meeting Endre in person - in CA - during the ALS Ice Water Challenge days. 
Hope you are well and stay well! Lynn

Lynn B. Friedman  I will never forget that day. You were like a little kid when you saw the big ice cream cone and insisted I turn the car around so you could get an ice cream cone -- we laughed so hard --

I have not had the pleasure of meeting Endre in person but enjoyed our talk immensely

I always find AR members to be like Family

Have a wonderful day

Endre does speak his mind and that is fine with me I always enjoy straight shooters - as I do the same and seem to get myself in trouble

Thank you Anna looking forward to your entry

I wrote my post today, but cannot see where to post the link as the bookmark took me to an entirely different blog post, as Ben had said, lots of the links are broken due to the loss of the June information.

Good evening Hannah Williams ,

Good for you! I enjoyed the challenge as it was a time to reach out and visit with some members I've been wanting to visit with! I even called someone I really like and have met in person who isn't posting any more. Thanks for hosting.

Hello Hannah!

I have been away from Activerain for some time and am so happy to see that the familiar faces are still here and going strong!

I have been trying to stay focused on time management and the internet had shown up as one of my "time sucks" in a time study that I did a while back- Probably because I enjoy connecting with all of you so much!

I am happy to be back and am "time blocking" Activerain each morning again. 

This challenge sounds interesting. 

Be well!
