So great to see long time friends this past Friday morning for the 2nd South Puget Sound Activerain Meetup... I've known everyone in the group for 10+ years now. How'd that happen? It's so fun to gather around a table over a great breakfast and catch up on life, business, the market, blogging, social media, and what's going on in the neighborhood. (L to R) Gabriella Neme, Paul McFaddon, Bonnie Stuart, Rene Fabre, Paul Henderson. It's been a busy and very social week with multiple events every day... This was a great way for me to end up the week with an AR Meetup on Thursday in Seattle with Charles Buell and Friday with Paul Henderson! It's always a pleasure to have some real FACE time with my Activerain Community!

Activerain Meetup, Johnny's at Fife, August 14, 2014. Thursday morning was the last and not least of my Activerain Meetup tour. What a fun week it has been. I was so happy when Paul Henderson took me up on an offer to co-host a south end Meetup. Charlie Buell and I always invite our South Sounders to every Seattle Meetup, but if you know this area the drive up from Olympia and Tacoma on a weekday morning at commute time to Seattle can be a brutal affair.  We met at Johnny’s at Fife just off Interstate 5 a couple of miles from downtown Tacoma. This was a great location and we had a large banquet room all to ourselves. Thanks Paul, excellent choice! And many thanks to the gals at Johnny's that took care of us. They were a lot of fun. Left to right around the table... Paul Henderson, Nancy...

I was early to arrive yesterday to Johnny's at Fife for the Activerain Meetup and I had the banquet room to myself for a few minutes. As I turned towards the wall at the end of the tables I saw this one checking me out.   There were several fish in the tank and most of them headed for the back behind the rocks and plants. But this one wasn't shy at all. I snapped a few photos and didn't think about it until last night. To my surprize the light and reflections through water and glass (no special effects) created this rather fun unintended compositional accident.

South Sound's first Activerain Meetup! I was so excited when Paul Henderson took me up on an offer I made back in March. The invitation is always open to our Activerain friends in the South Sound to join us at the Seattle Meetup. But, if you live in Pierce, Thurston, South King or over the Narrows Bridge on the peninsula in Kitsap, you know the drive north up Interstate 5 to Seattle on a weekday morning is a brutal affair.   So Paul and I are going to host the first southend meetup in Fife!  Johnny's at Fife.     WHEN: Thursday, August 14, 2014, 10:00 am   WHERE: Johnny's at Fife, 5211 20th St E, Fife WA 98242   Please RSVP! If you plan to attend the South Sound Activerain Meetup at Johnny's in Fife, please let us know with a comment below so we can keep an accurate count for reservatio...

I have visiting The Warthog since 2009 and have always had great food. I tried their smoked Prime Rib last weekend and my mouth is still watering from the fantastic flavor. (The also have the best french fries but ask for them to be Crisp (Dick Lynch style)... I have only had smoked Prime Rib  one other time (in Florida) and I vowed never ever to try it again. Well I have begun to trust the fine folks at the Warthog and my trust paid off. I have tried many different BBQ meals at the Warthog and have never been disappointed. If the restaurant was a little larger or laid out better,  this would be a 5 star review, all day long!   I give it a 4 out of 5 Stars!   This post was authored and photo taken  by Paul Henderson. ©2013, All Rights Reserved, This content may not be reproduced or rep...

Is now the time to sell in Radiance? In the last week I have been asked several times if now is the time to sell. And in every case, regardless of where the house is located, I have said Yes! Why? Because we are in a Seller's Market in South King County and Pierce County. Last month King County only had a 1.56 months supply of homes. And Pierce County only hada 2.2 months supply of inventory of homes for sale.That means that if no new houses come on the market to sell, then it would only take 1.56 (or 2.2) months to run out of houses to sell.  And when demand is high, and supply is low, it creates a Seller's Market.  Is now the time to sell in Radiance? Absolutely!!! This house, pictured on the right, received an offer within 12 days of being on the market. And that was back in October ...
