Come in OUT OF THE RAIN!!! or Play in the RAIN!


Did your Mother or Father or as parents yourself ever say "get in out of the rain", seems this place can take up a lot of your time and energy that is not spent in other places. So I was just wondering how much time the rest of you take out of your day to play in the rain. And do you feel it is time well spent? Thanx, Chuck.

It varies tremendously. If I have two reports to do on severely distressed properties, I'll go get my 10 daily comments in real quickly by visiting various groups that I started (Active Rain Book Club, Classical Music, Inspired By Nature). If I can't get my 10 comments in real quickly there, I'll go to other groups, such as NACHI Inspectors. I'll save blogging until another day. That usually takes about 30 minutes.

If I'm wanting to explore various subjects and comment on them, it could take me 1-3 hours to find them, read, and comment. Sometimes I'll do many more than 10 comments in a day if I find a new subject and lots of good blogs. Remember that commenting on someone else's blog will often get you a comment in return, which will ultimately add points to your total.

If I'm commenting and blogging in the same day, it could still be 1-3 hours.

I never spend more than 3 hours; that's just my own personal limit. I exercise self-control and save something for tomorrow.

Hi Chuck,

I haven't been on the "rain" in some time.  It seems that life generally gets in the way of spending time on the computer.  The darn PC is one of the biggest time eaters I know of.  Since I've gotten older (nearing 66) I am jealous of any and all free time.

Chuck, I was checking to see it you have started being active on your blog here or not.
