And so it begins! I just love this time of year, the cooler air settles in, there is a crispness about it that breathes new life into me. I find it more and  more difficult to drive as my eyes are drawn to the symphony of colors that lay before me. Even though I know it is coming, I am always, al...
I think many of you, like me, consider ActiveRain to be like a second home, home away from home, cyber home, something along those lines. If you have been here for a while, you really get to know your "family and neighbors". You know what they like, what they don't like, you look forward to readi...
I am strung out on watching the Bears at Katmai Falls via There are other cool live cams there, puppy cams, polar bear cams, whale cams, panda cams, elephant cams, a whole load of cams providing great entertainment 24/7. The folks at put together a tribute to one of the f...
My post for newbies about ActiveRain was a walk down memory lane for me. Especially with Patricia Kennedy  Early on I found out Pat is just as much of a bovine lover as I am.

Nothing I did was helping, it even appeared as if I had some horrible virus in it. After a few days with the tech guy I got the dreaded call. It's...

You have cleaned it up and out, both inside and out. Remember, I have to take marketing photos to get those buyers to want to come ...
Thank you to Paul Henderson for this inspiration contest! At first I thought this might be TMI, I might have even worried that it was TMI. Then I laughed at myself and decided to go for it.My mom was a worrier, it was bad. She worried about everything under the sun. I can remember thinking that i...
I haven't talked about points in a long, long time. Perhaps because I took some time off from blogging and fell behind. I remember thinking I would never, ever get to a million points, but this post should put me right over the edge, obtaining a long forgotten goal I had. Or perhaps it was more o...
