400 Posts Already? That is a lot of writing, isn’t it?


This is my 400th post on ActiveRain, according to my profile.  I enjoy milestone posts, because I can look back sometimes and see my progress.

Please bear with me, as I don't have a huge "concept" for this post – I just wanted to write something to commemorate it.

It's a beautiful spring day here in the Austin area, sunny and about 82 degrees, with a nice breeze.  Frankly, it's the kind of day that makes me happy to be alive.

Tomorrow, we will be celebrating my daughter's 7th birthday (it was a few days ago).  My wife took the older kids to shop for new bikes, and I am here at the house with our two-year old, who is napping.  It's nice to have the house (sort of) to myself for awhile.

(UPDATE: I just finished taking a nap with the baby after getting her back to sleep.   Everyone has returned now.  Where did the afternoon  go?  Wow – I love naps, which is ironic, since I hated napping when I was a kid.)

I am now on the notebook computer in our breakfast room, listening to my "Beatles" station on http://www.pandora.com/.  If you haven't discovered Pandora yet, I would highly recommend it.  You can customize your own commercial-and-DJ-free online radio station by choosing an artist or song that you like, then ratings selections from their catalogue.  It's fun!

I have some buyers that I will be meeting with soon, and today could be "decision day" for them.  I guess I need to type faster.

On my 300th post, I had promised to include a picture of the ripped abs from the movie "300" (which I did).  Despite the requests to do this again, I decided not to go that route this time around. 

As with my last milestone post, I want to take a minute to thank my subscribers (518 of them now!) and regular readers.  I wouldn't have stuck around if people weren't reading what I wrote. 

If a writer writes something which is not read by anyone, does he make a sound?

Thanks to AR, I continue to accumulate referrals, leads, and good friends.  Can't do better than that, I suppose. 

Have a good one!
