As I wrote about in my last post, when my wife and I moved to "Raleigh" from San Diego, we really didn't know all that much about the area. We had made the decision to pack up the U-haul and move here based more upon the areas geographical location than most of the other factors;  we wanted to be...
As I wrote about last week, my wife and I moved to Raleigh about 3 years ago from just outside of San Diego, in a town called Escondido.  When we made we honestly didn’t know all that much about the area.Which is how come I’m writing this post;  so that other people thinking about making the move...
My wife and I were living in Escondido, California near San Diego, California and neither of us were having much luck finding jobs in our fields.  And while Southern California is a wonderful place to live, it's not the cheapeast place on the planet to get by in.  Plus, after having moved from St...
As I was reading through some blogs this morning, I came across one where the lady was talking about why she didn't do New Year's Eve Resolutions and that she was going to work on being "kinder" to herself. Well, to me that sounded like a great New Year's Eve Resolution! ;-) But, I did understand...

Hi Everyone!  It's amazing how time gets away for a person.  Here it is going on the end of October and I realized that I haven't blogged here on Activerain for quite some time.  I really don't have a good reason.  It started because I got really busy working on my house and with a few transactio...
It's been kind of a crazy couple of weeks here in old St. Louis and I haven't been able to get on Activerain as much as I would like.  There are a bunch of different reasons that I haven't been on, including the best one...I've started getting busy again!  YEAHH!!!! I've also been out and about r...
I don't know how many of you are familiar with Andy Pausch.  He was a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who was suffering from Pancreatic Cancer that had been determined to be terminal. His "last lecture" to his students was recorded and became an internet phenomena.  If you haven't seen it...
