Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain November 6 to November 12, 2022


Every day there is something 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!


WayneNovember 8: Wayne Martin The ActiveRain MeetUps

While we used to have these meetups on a regular basis, you can still have them. I loved that I got to meet Wayne before his move to the windy city .


LeanneLeanne Smith What the Heck is a Water Haul

I learned about a water haul at Leanne's zoom presentation and learned more here. Makes you truly appreciate ow much water you use.


SheriNovember 9:  Sheri Sperry    Gratitude Post 2: I Am Grateful for Sedona Dark Skies

It has been a rare occasion when I’ve enjoyed the beauty of dark skies. And as usual, Sheri and Rick’s photos do not disappoint.
