Second Chance Saturday: Week 172

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.  

Second Chance Saturday is back as long as the site keeps functioning as it currently is. Fingers crossed.

Hi Carol Williams - thanks so much for this post, I'll be reading and catching up in AR this morning. Hope your air is better than ours this weekend. We both have headaches and scratchy throats.  Still, we are far more concerned about people who have lost family members and homes - devastating time in the Pacific Northwest.

Hi Carol:

Thanks for the reading list - looks like a good one, and I clearly have some catching-up to do.

I hope all is well in your area...the stories about the Pacific Northwest are horrible.

Carol, again a great selection of posts with good content.  You, Kathy and others are another brand of "feature faeries" in the rain.  Much would be missed without your time and effort.  Just want you to know it is noticed and appreciated.  And cute profile pic too.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 
I think our air is a little better than yours. I checked this morning and yours is off the charts. Stay safe... or escape somewhere beyond this mess. I would if I didn't have my sis in law to look after.  Stay safe!

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS 
Yes, the air quality in all of the Pacific Northwest is horrible. We aren't quite as bad here as down in Oregon. We're praying for rain!
