Oh I didn't mean trolling in a bad way. I just meant "fishing" the boards looking for interesting subjects. I enjoy your posts.

Thank-you for clearing that up...

I've lived in Arkansas for 30 years and have been in just about every county, and every town. I've yet to find a banana plantation here. Guess I need to keep looking.

Maybe the OP needs to trade in his Texas clock for a Hog hat. Then he might make some friends!

I lived in AR for six years while I was in the military. Now live in NC. I had fun and Arkansas is not a bad place, most parts aren't. Cost of living there is very cheap. And the scenery is beautiful. People aren't as friendly there as I would say in Alabama or Georgia, but there not really rude or blunt. You wanna see rude and blunt go northeast like say Jersey or Boston. I remember alot of times you have to force people to talk. I left there when I got out of the military because there not much opportunity there. There are factories here and there but no major industries are based there. If you do have a good job, youre straight. Overall its a good place to be. Ive lived and worked in 5 diffrent states.

Great points, I think AR is very friendly, but overall I agree, probably not quite as friendly as the deep south. Of course it depends on where you live in AR I would guess. The one thing I do think about: AR, though a southern state really has more of mid America personality which is not quite as hospitable as the deep south.

Oh, I disagree, I've found South-Central folks (AR, OK, TX) to be the nicest of anywhere in the country (and I've lived in the Deep South, East/West coast, and spent some time in the Midwest as well).

That's just my experience....I might be a little biased though. I've lived away from this area for several years and now that I'm back I'm gonna do my darndest to stay here. :-)

You could be right, that is why I mentioned it depends on where in the state you live. Remember, here in NWA a good number of the population are from all over the country and we are right on the border of the mid west. Again, I am not complaining, I absolutely love living here and I think it is very friendly, but I have seen places even more so.

Nita

oh, and welcome back, I too, hope you get to stay. I know we are here for the duration.

Most defiantly. I always saw AR as being "northeast TX", just as northern New Jersey is really just New York City suburbs.
