fun: DONT BE A PAIN IN THE RAIN? - 04/12/14 10:53 AM
What does this mean? Well anywhere else besides ACTIVERAIN, it means something to do with the weather and people are scratching their heads thinking what? However, here on ACTIVERAIN, one can become a pain but what type of pain?
RESISTANCE=GROWTH
You see there is pain that comes with growth. Learning pain if you will. Resistance to anything signals growth is yonder and awaiting. This is an acceptable pain even necessary. Richfuscious says...man who does not go with flow...go anyway
THIS ONE HURTS
How about pain of truth? Something that you see and read about that brings a past or present unpleasant episode to rise up and cause … (7 comments)

fun: AN OPEN HOUSE HISTORY LESSON - 04/10/14 07:27 AM
This is always a pleasant subject that has history and purpose. I have watched the open house subject evolve from appealing to agents "only" to more of an appeal to the public at large. In the 80's, it was important to get agents to view the home to generate traffic and create a word of mouth
OFFICE TO OFFICE COMMUNICATIONS
Remember, there was no Internet. Ponder that because it provides the setting for the opens back then. Fliers were not uncommon to communicate between the various Real Estate offices daily by messengers. They would come in and all of them would describe a property … (10 comments)

fun: TRANS-WORLD THE REAL ESTATE PLANET (with humor) - 04/03/14 01:57 PM
On this world of transparency called TRANS-WORLD , it is known for its transparency in everything on it. Nothing is hidden that cannot be revealed and is open to easy accessible inspection to anyone that wants to inquire about a place for sale or investment. The history of a property from the time it was built to present day is available
CLICK TO REVIEW
HOW? You push a button or click on one... and the entire history of the property comes up for your review with nothing held back. Work performed (and when) also is logged in and even included are the materials and who did the work. … (13 comments)

fun: RAIN RAIN DONT GO AWAY...LETS MEET UP AND GET TO PLAY - 03/29/14 01:38 PM
Sara & Les Oswald, Kristin Hamilton, Richie Alan Naggar, Marisa Hunter, and Christina Hood all met up and talked Real Estate fluently and many other things too. Christina & Kristen both work for Keller Williams, Marisa for RE/MAX, Richie for Ran Right Realty and Sara & Les for Eastvale Team Realty
ACTIVE-GAIN
We all agree on the value of ACTIVERAIN, posting, commenting and being known. The public remembers all that and usually recognizes us before we them. Marisa shared she first recognized Sara in a bathroom. We got a few laughs out of that...All of us also thought that being able … (5 comments)

fun: YOU CAN FOOL ME BUT NOT THE BIRDS AND THE BEES - 03/14/14 05:18 PM
One day I am out shopping looking around to gift my wife. Guys, we all do it at some point so relax a little here. Anyway  I am not a good shopper. When I was a kid, I saved all my measly allowance and bought my mom LIPSTICK. WHY? It cost the exact amount that I had
I DON'T SHOP WELL
It doesn't matter if I even make an effort when buying a gift. Its not me. I am missing that gene. Even if I ask for help, they don't know my wife and what she likes and I don't like taking the time to … (3 comments)

fun: I TOILED, SWEATED, BLOGGED, COMMENTED AND FINALLY - 03/10/14 05:09 PM
Made it into the top ten 10 in California. I am among the greats now. The California Hall of Famers and die hard ActiveRainers who take their ranking seriously. I also want to have a pause of respect right now as you read this for all the ones I passed on the way here. Begin the pause now
PAUSING IN REMEMBRANCE
I knew those I passed and had fond memories as I suited up, fastened my seat belt and engaged my blogging warp drive. As I went past one after the other, there were some that I saluted because they were worthy of … (12 comments)

fun: THIS WAS AND STILL IS LOTS OF FUN - 03/10/14 11:00 AM
Riding a bike. It is inviting to all ages. For the young, it is something they will never forget. That feeling of when you took off on your own perhaps on three wheels and then one day on two is one of the biggies of life. Then, moving to the other end of the scale, when you see this...
GRACE ON WHEELS
An elderly man or woman riding a bike it is like watching a swan pedal as they go by. They are graceful, deliberate, slow but steady and the little kid once again is the one pushing the pedals. This invention of riding … (10 comments)

fun: CHALLENGE YOURSELF WITH THIS ONE: LISTENING - 02/03/14 07:29 AM
Pick a day any day and decide to make it a day where you practice listening. Not just NOT talking but listening to what others are saying. being attentive, eye contact, giving your full attention to the person and as an option, ask questions for further listening training
I WONT TALK...
Listening is a lot harder than you think. Most people's first reaction to wanting or attempting to listen will be to think that they will just silence themselves thus becoming what is left..a listener. Not so. Rocks and walls are silent but they are not good listeners. NO. More is required from … (10 comments)

fun: ON THESE ACTIVERAIN POINTS WHERE ARE THEY POINTING? - 01/29/14 07:34 AM
I like points and when they first came into my life, they commanded respect. When you find out what they can do or represent, it becomes a way of keeping a blogging score for your self and on others too. After you hit 500,000 points however, what is the point after that?
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
I have written two previous posts on this subject one for fun and one for forward development. I see a greatness and a uniqueness using the current point system to evolve into its next phase. If one doesn't keep the business legs in good shape, they get out of … (22 comments)

fun: HERE IS SOMETHING THAT IS GUARANTEED TO RELAX YOU - 01/15/14 09:34 AM
You have done this on occasion but I am willing to bet not recently. When you did do it, you loved it and it said quite a bit about you at the time. It involved sharing the way you feel and what you see and then creating that so that others can enjoy it too
THE COLORING BOOK
I am speaking of COLORING. Good old fashioned crayons and a coloring book of your choice. Many themes to choose from and remember when you were a kid, the most often repeated prompt when starting out on this was....
DON'T COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES

fun: THIS POST PURELY FOR RANKING & ACTIVERAIN POINT MANEUVERS - 01/04/14 08:14 AM
I like moving up in rank. It is not easy to do here in California as the Rainmakers here make so much thunder and lightning that it is no easy task to move up. However, if you catch someone who has taken a vacation or a long nap, you get with some blogging moves...to up your rank
ALL SYSTEMS PREAPRE FOR LAUNCH
Such is the case here. An opportunity existS where I can move up so here I go. I am only doing what we all do but don't talk about about. Yet ranking remains relevant for its boasting rights and there is … (21 comments)

fun: DONT BE A DUMMY LOOK WHO'S TALKING? - 12/17/13 02:59 PM
In the world of dummies, they appear normal to each other. However if one ventured into our world, they appear to be dummies. The opposite must be true. If we ventured into their world, we would appear to be the dummy and so it went back and forth with this fellow (see pic below)
Look, I sez...why don't you make something of yourself?
He sez...I am. For now I am helping you to learn CPR
I sez...how can you help me with your eyes closed?
He says...how come you wear glasses?
I sez...because I have trouble seeing and this helps
He sez...I don't have to see … (4 comments)

fun: ROD SERLINGS SMOKE ALARM - 12/12/13 08:46 AM
It started one night. I heard a distinct noise that pulled me out of a dead sleep. I was in bed in a second story 3300 square foot home when I heard first in my dreams...chirp. Once awake and a few moments later...chirp. What was that? A giant cricket from hell? Remember, I was half asleep
CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP whoa
I got up in the middle of the night and started tracking down this noise. I couldn't go back to sleep with this programmed steady chirp every so many seconds. In my groggy mind, I would countdown the seconds until the next chirp and … (7 comments)

fun: A President, Ambassador and Millionaire Meet in Norco CA - 12/09/13 07:26 AM

COME ALL YE FAITHFUL was the call and we heard it and we came. It was an ACTIVERAIN meet-up. I highly recommend face to face with any RAINMAKER so that your online experience can come full circle and pay off in coin not of this realm. The coin? Sharing & caring up close. BTW, I asked Kristen about her online picture and she posed exactly like it. I exclaimed...that's it like a little kid and we both laughed (remember Kristen?). Real treat for me. Sarah & Les anchored the event and one brings warmth and the other brings inviting and together they … (8 comments)

fun: ACTIVERAIN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE KERRIE - 12/02/13 07:38 AM
Fascinating experience this blogging, commenting and knowing others electronically. ActiveRain and it's popularity eventually will develop a A.I. consciousness of its own one day logging in to see what I am doing instead of me going to it. It will have to get my attention in such a way that compliments my morning.
BEEP...BELL OR FLASH
It will start with a BEEP or a BELL or perhaps a flashing light coming from my computer. In a smart phone type suri voice, my computer will gently call to me and then start its inquiry. Richie, ACTIVERAIN awaits contact with you. Would you mind coming this way? … (4 comments)

fun: ONE MILLION REASONS TO BLOG IN ACTIVERAIN - 12/01/13 04:20 PM
I found ACTIVERAIN one day. I reviewed it not understanding it and made a note to come back when I had more time. With me, making a note or bookmarking is literal. I only go toward things that capture my attention in a certain way. AR qualified. On my return visit, I decided to fill out some areas and hardly noticed the movement as it gently prompted me forward. It reminded me of an airport
FIND THE TERMINAL
You enter the area and then the parking section and on to the entrance and then into the terminal. Then, you wonder past different … (76 comments)

fun: EMBARRASING AND ENTERTAINING DEPENDING ON POINT OF VIEW - 11/28/13 11:15 AM
My granddaughter had come to me one day and shared a gift someone gave her. It reminded me of one of those whoopee cushions remember those? You take this hard rubber type balloon, blow some air into it and then put it under a seat cushion. An unsuspecting person goes to sit down and out comes a noise simulating an embarrassment. Of course everyone knew it wasn't you but a joke.
THEY IMPROVED ON IT
Now she shows me this electronic type WHOOPEE gadget that attaches to underneath a table or a chair and ...ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? It comes with a remote control. … (12 comments)

fun: RANDOM ACTIVERAIN THOUGHTS - 11/28/13 10:32 AM
Just some random thoughts and observations that make up a post and who knows where it may lead. I find logging in to ACTIVERAIN pleasurable and productive. The changes are welcomed and some need to hit the ground running. I suppose it is an ongoing activity as we are all tweaking while we go
1. The scrolling of the spell-check choices. You hit spell check. Then, this little box appears with choices. The old one had me scrolling down 2-3 pages off the screen on some words. I even stopped using those words because I didn't want to scroll down to correct them...Now, the … (6 comments)

fun: I'LL TAKE ONE OF THOSE, SOME OF THOSE AND 5000 OF THOSE PLEASE - 11/24/13 04:04 PM
We are in the home stretch. Yes to all those that have stayed with KERRIE'S 30 in 30 post contest for November. We will have much to celebrate besides Thanksgiving this next week. 5000 points is a huge leap into the ranking, point pleasures and status on the ACTIVERAIN boards. Yes, there are many that tell you to post for business etc. and that is what counts in the end and I agree with them BUT...
HO HUM...YAWN POINTS?
I never have seen or heard of anyone yet who blogs, comments or posts say to ACTIVERAIN...Just keep the points. I don't … (9 comments)

fun: YOUR POINTS ARE TALKING - 11/24/13 03:12 PM
Its true...Those ACTIVERAIN points come from participating online in ACTIVERAIN. I am thinking of all those video games when they first came out and how they discovered it built up the eye to hand coordination for kids and even activated their brain centers too. So it is with engaging ACTIVERAIN as it also will engage you too
POINTS SPEAK is an ActiveRain language
You see when accumulating points, it is because of your involvement and the different things that you are doing. While you are involving and doing, you are learning. As your learn, you are given points and the whole … (11 comments)
