Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-December 5 to December 11, 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!

DorieDecember 6: Dorie Dillard My Christmas Miracle
Still don't believe in miracles? We need to flood the internet with stories that make you smile!


Ron and AlexandraRon and Alexandra Seigel Monday Musings & Inspiration: A Formula for Joy!

One of my favorite words is JOY. We have it in our power to find it, during this holiday season and throughout the year.




JeffDecember 7:  Jeff Dowler    Are You In a Hurry or Do You just Sound Like It?
First impressions aren’t just in person anymore. How are you coming across on the phone?


EndreEndre Barath, Jr. Today is December 7 and Every Year I think of the Year 1941

If we forget these important dates in history (real history, not the stuff others would rewrite) then we will continue to lose. Well done, Endre.


Thomas J. Nelson, REALTORDecember 9: Thomas J Nelson Take Action: Marvel at the Apples

Such a simple concept. Every day we are in awe of our devices, for example, and what they can do for us. But we waltz right by those simple things gifted to us by Mother Nature and think nothing of them.


SheriSheri Sperry Thankful and Throwback Thursday- A Postcard From 1969

RockyRocky Dickerson Even though it is a business network...

Mahalo Rocky for what you have brought to the community. If you wonder why we're here or if you should be here, Rocky's post should fill you in.


RobertDecember 10: Robert Siciliano Erase the Data on Your Devices: The Secure Way

As I said in my comment, Larry has taken the hammer to one of our hard drives for a laptop we had. Robert offers some other less invasive ways!!!


Dan DeeDan Dee McGinnis You Hiding Like a Snail or Turtle? Get Out Help Someone Make a Friend

It's been said that the best way to take your mind off your own troubles is to get out and help someone.


KenDecember 11: Ken Tracy Drawing Inspiration from My Father on His Birthday...

We can all relate to this on different levels. Happy Birthday, Ken's dad. You're never too late to be a work in progress.
