Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain November 20 to November 26, 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!

Guess what?  I am on vacation so my schedule has opened up a little bit and I should be able to attend the zoom meeting!

Awesome, Brian. The bad news is I probably won't be able to attend with the amazing Craig. If all goes according to plan, I will be somewhere in the Siskiyou Mountains during that session.  Have an awesome vacation week!
