yes, we heard some pretty far out remarks from our friends in NM. of course most were sure we would be killed by tornados the first day we arrived; some were hoping our neighbors didn't have their extra refridge on the front porch and of course they just knew property would be 1/2 of what it was in NM. Acutally in BV, it is probably a little higher, depending on where you life in NM> I guess the most asked question simply was, "why in the hell would you move to Arkansas?" I tell them, we want to have a real college football team to route for....Too bad the razorbacks are going to have a re-building year: I might end up eating my words........

I'm still hoping Petrino can be a bit of a miracle worker in a rebuilding season and we can finish in the middle of the SEC west pack at least. Now...if we can get some recruits who don't have such an affinity for breaking the law...that would be nice.

I too am hopeful, it isn't only the re-building and I like Petrino so far, it's the law breakers that will kill us. No pun intended, I don't really mean literally kill us...

Geez, I thought Arkansas was predominantly african-american, as opposed to red-neck. Am I incorrect in my thinking here?

Ahhh.... Pine Bluff, which is 70% black, I think. It's in the Mississippi delta, which is where most of Arkansas' African-American population lives. Plenty of red-necks there, too. The Ozarks are mostly what give northern Arkansas (and southern Missouri) it's West-Appalachia stereotype. I try not to say too much, considering I have lots of family in that neck of the woods. I just hope none of them were related at the time of marriage. Could explain a lot of my personal problems, though.

Arkansas is a fine state; a place I have lived before and if the opportunity arose again I would probably relocate there in a heartbeat.

I thought I was going get to bump up my time line and move this year, but that fell through, so I'm stuck with my original plan. I can't wait to get to Arkansas and leave nasty LA behind.

the slow to prepare food and long lines are due to their not making food ahead so it can sit under heat lamps.. The food is made while you wait. I do agree with you on the fries though..

A lot of people don't like their fries, I happen to think they are really good cause they are fresh. You are right about why it takes at least 5 or 10 minute (god forbid) to get served. Everything is fresh.
