Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-October 17 to October 23, 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!


SheriOctober 17: Sheri Sperry It has been 10 years...

Congratulations to Sheri! We have all enjoyed Rick and Sheri's photos and I love her monthly weather post for Sedona! See what she has to say about her 10-year journey.


Thomas J. Nelson, REALTORThomas J. Nelson Ripples of Inspiration in the Rain!

I love what Thomas has to say about networking and being YOU. And, see...what you say or write is read by others!



Mike October 18: Mike Cooper Don't Panic; just Improvise.
Mike has followed his mother-in-law's advice and it's good!!! Find the solution to a problem. Pizza and green beans, though??


Ron and AlexandraRon and Alexandra Seigel Monday Musings & Inspiration: Watching Your Thoughts!

This is such a simple concept but it is so true. Put your gear in reverse when you see yourself heading down that road to negativity.



Peter Mohylsky.  October 20:  Peter Mohylsky    Do You Believe in Ghosts?

It’s almost Halloween so how about a ghost post??? Do you believe in ghosts???


Lorrie Semler, REALTOR® in the Dallas area.                  October 21: Lorrie Semler When ActiveRain Becomes 3 Dimensional

Love Lorrie's title!! And our Carol Williams spent about a week or more going through the great state of Texas! And we got to see a new member, Neva Warnock!


Margaret RomeMargaret Rome Staying Up with Real Estate

Love Morgan Freeman's quote. And if anyone knows about keeping up to date with real estate it's Margaret!


KatOctober 22: Kat Palmiotti Autumn (and Rain) in Sandpoint, Idaho

Kat had me wondering if she managed to tuck in an ActiveRain Meetup! Take a look! And what a great job she did of showcasing the area.

Hi Brian England it's football weekend so having fun. We saw the Jayhawks actually hold Oklahoma for the first 2 quarters yesterday. Quite an achievement. 

Michael Jacobs I was thinking the same thing today. We began making Thanksgiving plans and thinking about Christmas gifts!  Didn't we just hit summer?
