Sounds like fun - Like your clever sign too.

Posted by Jason & Amber Gardner, We're Committed to Your Success! (Hasson Company, Realtors) over 11 years ago

Margaret - glad you'll be there, but what do you mean you've been disabled?  Do you mean on BTR?  You should just be able to go to the RAIN website and listen from there, join the chat, or call into us, you don't have to be any kind of a member on BTR to do that, only to comment I think. Let me know. 

BTW - I should have that other little issue resolved by this Friday for you and the others. Thanks for being so patient.  Looking forward to having you on the show and at the party with us tomorrow.  :)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 11 years ago

I'm working on getting some outside sponsors to donate some really cool stuff, we'll have to see how many of my peeps will pull through at the last minute here.  Party starts in just 12 hours.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 11 years ago

Sorry to miss the party, I have a showing but I have to say your techie tips and ideas totally amaze me.  How do you ever sleep with all those ideas floating around?  Have a fun party!

Posted by Annette Smith, Sarasota Real Estate Agent (Allen Real Estate Services, Inc.) over 11 years ago

We're a little snowed in in Las Vegas right now, so I think that will give me time to listen. Looking forward to the last broadcast of 2008!

Hi Brad!  YOU are NOT going to believe this!  I am headed up 321 to Blowing Rock / Banner Elk to pick up my son from college today!  I could not believe when I clicked on this post and saw your sign--Hey, I recognize that sign!  Of course, I'll be looking for the AR party announcement on the sign today too!!

What a coincidence! 

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Posted by The Lovely Wife... over 11 years ago

Hey TLW - did they pick it up? 

I finally got logged into the chatroom, but once I did that, all sound on the blog radio was lost.  Not on my computer but on the blog radio, so then I couldn't hear a peep that was being said.  Not much fun when you can't hear the 'radio'!!   ;-((

Yup. They kinda had to...They were talking about BB and I which made my phone ring :)

I have to run out right now into the mobs at the Mall to help Santa with stuff for under our tree, but I'll be back later this afternoon to see how much damage and affect the party had on our fellow "rainers!" 

It was a blast from beginning to end.  I just watched TLW's video again, it' her favorite, and mine too!  ;-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 11 years ago

Hi Brad, Missed the party as I was working!!!! I did get the listing 'tho.  I loved the AR highway sign & the little sign, looks like it's on the side of a building. You elves rock! Now to listen to the broadcast.

Posted by Marian Gregor-Ann, Arbor area Real Estate (Keller Williams) over 11 years ago

Hi Brad:

That was fun today.  By the way, there's a big delay between the chat room and actually hearing the broadcast.  I would say it was at least 10 to 15 seconds... 

By the time I heard the questions, you had a winner!

So glad I went! I had a blast reading in the chat room and listening to the conversations - even though I didn't win anything.  It was great!

Thanks for the great party!  I didn't call in but I "lurked" and did get in on the chat room.  Lots of fun.  I guess I don't type fast enough to win prizes.  I was looking forward to that flip video.   Oh well - maybe next time.

I missed both =(  But I love that sign! That is so cool! What a unique and creative idea. I have a picture of a "Welcome to Daytona Beach" sign. I'll have to use that in a blog post. Thanks for the idea =)

Brad...

I won but gave away my one year subscription for RES. I asked that it be given to the person who answered the question after I did in the chat room. Inquiring minds would like to know who The Free Year went to? I'm hoping it went to someone who hadn't already won something. The RES Subscription makes a wonderful Christmas present :)

TLW...ROAR!

TLW - not sure who that was, but if you can let me know who you'd like to hand that down to, I'd be happy to contact Jeff Turner and the member to get it all setup and squared away.  If you can't find out who it was, let me know and we can find another way to get that to someone on AR who really needs it.  I'll need to get back to Jeff soon so we can get it setup for them before year end.

Thanks, it was great having you call in and join us.  AR Parties just aren't the same without you.  :-)

Brad...

Don't worry about it. I'll take it from here and talk to Hubba myself. As you probably know, he and I are very close.

And just so you know...I really do enjoy Rain Radio but the timing has just been off for me. Hopefully most of that is behind us and I'll tune in 'live' next year :)

Until then, I hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas together :)

TLW...ROAR!
