Last Week's Favorites on ActiveRain: September 6th-12th

By

As I sat down to write this post, I realized that I hadn't saved the page where I had all of my links for my favorite posts last week.  Oops!  But my memory is still good enough to remember the ones I liked and even loved.  So here goes:

Nick Vandekar: A tribute to the dogs and rescue searchers of 9/11  Every year, I sit down to read to 9/11 posts with a hanky nearby.  When I got to Vik's I needed it.  If you love dogs like I do, you'll need a hanky, too.  

Patricia Feager: It May Surprise You But...  Here is a trip down memory lane with a lot of heart and humor. It reminded me of our neighborhood family doctor suggesting to a harried new mom that she put a little beer in her baby's bottle.  My mom was scandalized.

Barbara Todero: Real Estate Is A Sink Or Swim Business - No Treading Water to Thrive:  This is must reading for any Active Rain blogger who has decided that thriving is a really good life - and career - strategy. And isn't her new photo just wonderful?

Joan Cox: Buying a Brand New Home - Do You Use their Preferred Lender  Sometimes what looks like a savings can be costing you more money at the end of the day.  I agree with Joan that it's important to do the math when you are doing new construction.

Jeff Dowler: Virtual Art in the Village is Now Live in Carlsbad  Gee. Everything is virtual these days!  But I really loved the picture of Jeff sitting in one of the pieces of art.  I think he should consider using it as his new profile picture.  

Robert Swetz a.k.a. Vegas Bob:  What would your phrase be for this great Alaska photo?  This comes from one of ActiveRain's great characters, and it's one that I certainly hope involved a bit of Photoshop!

Nina Hollander: Labor Day In The Midst Of A Pandemic: What Americans Think  This is an interesting post at a time when I think that probably 100 percent of us just want to make it stop!  And Nina's right.  This was no ordinary Labor Day.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin:  That's what she shed!  This is one of those "this is too good to make up" posts.  And it's also one of those examples of mature professionals handling a problem in a way that it wasn't a problem.  Good work, Wanda!

So that's all for this gorgeous sunny morning!  Hope you all have a good next week, and blog on!

Dorie, it's fun to back in the Rain.  It does feel awfully different than it was a few years ago.
