April '22 -  Success And Friendship! That's What ActiveRain Means To Me. Back in the Dark Ages of 2010, interesting posts from a group called ActiveRain began to show up in my reading. Looking into the community, I discovered that it actually had a phenomenal philosophical base.The Founders offered a set of Community Guidelines for individuals within the group. In fact, right there, they spelled out good conduct and "bad" as well. Good conduct included maintaining ActiveRain as"a place where real estate professionals can network with their peers and discuss industry insider topics.

Atlanta Buckhead Midtown: Snow And Still Have Electricity! Great Combo In Atlanta Buckhead Midtown and the Westside, snow is beautiful. When the flakes begin to melt and then freeze into ice, the trouble begins!The storms this weekend gave us the beauty of the snow dusting without coating either the trees or the streets with ice. Life proceeded as normal - people out walking and running and having fun in general albeit a bit colder outside - like 28 degrees instead of the usual balmy 45 degrees of January days! And one other lucky break - the winter flowers stayed in full bloom - no ice to kill them!
