Last Week's Favorites on ActiveRain: August 30-September 5th

By
Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

It's been a fun week, well actually only 5 days so far.  In my first foray onto ActiveRain in a while, I've found many old friends and some new, or at least new to me, bloggers.  So here goes!

Nick Vandekar: Music for 9.2.20:  It looks like Nick, a new to me blogger, is into music posts.  As a classically trained flutist, this one grabbed me.  The velvety, satiny sound of Kristina Cooper's cello just may bring tears to your eyes. It did to mine!

Michael Jacobs:  Realty:  This is one of those topics that has a lot of us scratching out heads lately.  It's a good read for this time of alternate universes that many of us feel we might be living in - or are other people living in them?  Michael hasn't lost a beat during my recent absence.

Alan May - Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat & Smack-talk:  If you've never been ghosted by a buyer or seller, you're missing out on a major experience that is a rite of passage for any great agent.  And Alan can make us sort of get that it's OK.  Like get over it! Next!

Anna Banana Cruchten -  Lazy Lane or Dead End.  Your choice!  Is there reaally a Lazy Lane?  What was the developer of that neighborhood thinking?  This is a cute blog with a message.  It made me smile, but even more important, it made me think!

Chrissy Boltan - Why Are They Called Plantation Shutters? I never knew this!  This post goes ihnto that "learn something new on ActiveRain each day" category.  Chrissy is another new to me blogger, and I do think I'll learn a lot from subscribing to her post!

Richie Alan Naggar -  Laptop Love or You Will Lose Her: Here is a cautionary tale that we've heard all too often, but the way Richie wrote it has made me stand up and listen.  How to avoid that sick, sinking feeling you get when you see the life on your computer disolve before your very eyes!

Adam Feinberg - The Disease I Truly Worse Than The Cure:  Adam wrote this last April as New York was scaring the crap out of the country.  In this city that I love, so many people were terribly ill and dying as we saw the canary in the coal mine keel over.  Covid isn't a hoax. 

That's all for this week. I had fun looking for posts to include in Last Week's Favorites, and maybe next week I'll find your magnum opus.  Cheers, and have a fun Labor Day!

Hi Pat:

So nice to see you posting here again (although I always enjoy your Monday Morning Coffee emails). I actually saw a number of these, only because life was not so crazy AND we could readily get in to read, comment and post. Such a treat!
