I Learn Something New at ActiveRain Every Day and It's Time I Showed You.  May 27 - June 2, 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!

Dorie DillardMay 27:  Dorie Dillard  Wear Your Red Poppy and Honor our Servicemen on Memorial Day.
I’d forgotten all about wearing a red poppy on Memorial Day.  Do you remember the red poppy tradition?  

Barbara S DuncanMay 28:  Barbara Duncan    Amazing Things About Old Pictures.  Old Photographs Made In Georgia.
How many times have we looked at an old photograph, perhaps of our parents or grandparents... then said “I wonder what life was like then?”  Maybe if we really saw the photos we could get a glimpse.

Gabe SandersMay 29:  Gabe Sanders  A Short Sale Nightmare
I first learned the term “short sale” when we returned to Florida in 2007.   At that time, many Realtors I’d met wouldn’t touch them.  Gabe’s post reminded me how it is imperative that a Seller hire the most professional and experienced Realtor they can find and one who is guided not not only by the sale but more importantly guided by doing what’s right for their client.

debbie reynoldsMay 30: Debbie Reynolds   Debbie’s Quick Fixes How to Fix Dents in Your Front Door.
I’ve seen dents like the one Debbie describes in some of the homes I’ve staged.  This is a fix any of us could do.

scott foglemanMay 31:  Scott Fogleman  Losing Them Each Day, We Will Not Forget

Many of us say certain things should happen, but Bob Slaughter took it a step further.  Did you know there was a National D-Day Memorial?

Mark LoewenbergJune 1: Mark Loewenberg   Awesome iPad Realtor Apps

I just got my iPad so I’m going to look at some of these apps.  It’s always interesting to read what other users have to say.

Fernando HerbosoJune 2:  Fernando Herboso    Do You Mind?
Often what we learn from a post is not only the post itself but from the comments.  Fernando writes about a subject that is very close to home for many of us.  Don’t just read Fernando’s post... scroll down to read the comments.

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