With the Superbowl coming up it's natural that people will start talking about the various ads that you'll see running during the game.  I imagine that there are probably as many people who tune in to see the ads as actually watch the game.  This got me to thinking about some of my favorite adver...
As the title suggests, this post should put me over the century mark here on AR.  When I looked up and noticed this, I thought about what a suitable topic would be for it and decided that the best thing would be to reflect on the good, the bad and the ugly of my experiences here on Active Rain.In...

Yesterday I wrote a post called, "Is It Time For A Revolution" where I talked about an article that I had read on how the very rich spend their money.  I thought that the post had turned out pretty good, but what impressed me the most were the comments!The comments that I received on it were out ...
