I've Always Said I Learn Something New at ActiveRain Every Day and It's Time I Showed You.  April 22-- April 29, 2012

I learn something new every day at ActiveRain!  With this series I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment.  It could be something techie, about Real Estate, about a place or person!

Emmary NicholsonApril 22:  Emmary Nicholson  Semi-Speechless Sunday: Bring Isabel Home.
This is a little different but Emmary posted this last week and as of last I checked, little Isabel is still missing.  Please read this post.


Marco GiancoloApril 23: Marco Giancola   Not of This Earth Day.  
I’ve been boating in South Florida for about 25 years and have seen all types and sizes of boats, yachts, and ships but this one is really out of this world!


Sondra Meyer ParkerApril 24: Sondra Meyer Parker  Thoughts on the Luxury of Simplicity: Can Simple Be Luxurious?
Most of us spend our early life accumulating things that make us feel as if we’re living in the lap of luxury.   I love Sondra’s phrase...the “luxury of simplicity”.


Carra RileyApril 25: Carra Riley  Global Connections in India
I admit, I am the first person to really dislike call centers that seem to be where English is not the mother tongue.  It’s frustrating!  but please read Carra’s post.


Janis BourgetaApril 26: Janis Borgueta  Optimize Your URL on Linked In
I’m on Linked In but admittedly don’t use it like I should.  The first thing I’m going to do is optimize my URL!


Phil LengApril 27: Phil Leng  You Don’t See This Every Day
Just for fun, you’ve got to take a look at this.  Claustrophobia comes to mind.



Myrl JeffcoatApril 28: Myrl Jeffcoat  All That Glitters is Sometimes Gold
I love my glitter and bling and I guess that’s what opened up the west!  We’ve all heard of the gold rush but read Myrl’s interesting story.



Thank you for letting me do what I love to do each day... learn something new!

Kathy,

I am delighted that the post on embracing India, it's people and our world touched you and then you "paid it forward."  We can all make a difference in how we perceive others being kind to one person at a time.  You have just shown us the way and I sincerely appreciate you and what you do to make the world a better place!  Thank you Kathy.

Toni- hope you’re not having the rainy day we are!  Enjoy your day.

Norma- I can see everyone having a busy spring, which is great.  Hope this makes it easier for you.

Scott-be sure to check out Marco’s.  Since you passed through our way you may have see this.

Janis- I can tell you that I bet a lot of people will be checking their Linked In URL’s.

Marco- I loved that yacht!  It really did look like it was from outer space.  It’s really soggy today.

Kristine- We’ve all been so busy lately, which is good, but it’s always nice to come here where you can see your friends.

Myrl-my pleasure- I think we often don’t appreciate our history until we’re older.

Sharon- I’m glad you like it.  Enjoy your Sunday reading.

Pamela- I’ve had to bookmark it because I know I’ve not maximized my presence on LinkedIn.

Kathy- when I’m reading through everything, it really makes me realize how many I miss during my normal AR reading.

Brenda- I try to offer a variety  and am glad you like them.

Dick- I really appreciate that, and thanks for the feature in my favorite group.

Roy- as always, my camera is handy.

Debbie- be sure to look at Phil’s.  I’ve never seen anything like it.

Carra- Thank you for your kind words.  I’d never really taken the time to think of the “voices” as people just like us.

I nose dived for Marco's. I would have been on the lookout for extra terrestrials. That is wild looking.
