Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain January 15 to January 21, 2023


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!

Thank you for pointing out some some important posts, especially Roy's post about Dolores.  I had missed that one.  It is sad to hear Dolores fell.  I really hope her rehab goes well and she is home quickly and that Roy's vertigo is corrected quickly too.

I agree Ray Henson I hope that her healing will go quickly and well.
