Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-May 2 to May 8, 2021


Every day there is something new to learn here at ActiveRain.  With this series, I try to highlight posts 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!

Thank you, as always, for your weekly post. I hadn't read most of them. I did know goats could be rented to clean areas - I think that's a great idea.
