Had spring in February, as usual, (Daffodils, Crocus, Bluets, Johnny Jump Ups, Harbinger, etc.) – we had extremely high pollen counts due to trees; then 20 days of very cold weather including a record low of 2F (breaking the old record by 20 degrees) lots of ice and snow – did I mention ICE and ICE ! A major kill off of everything took place. Last week we started again only this time the grasses are pollenating and both categories are very high to extreme. I have been miserable for 5 days; actually glad to see the rain today (3/18) and tomorrow (3/19).

At the 105 year old Oark (yes Oark, no Z) Country Store on the upper Mulberry River in the southern Boston Mountains, with a decorated Cedar Tree and a beautiful floatable River just downstream at “Wolf Pen” access. Best burgers in Arkansas and beautiful old time atmosphere:

I purchased this old PC on eBay about a year ago. I shows the old hotel in Jasper, Arkansas. This hotel has situated on the same street (on the corner of Court St. and Spring St.)  that the Movie Theater “Buffalo Theater” and the Chamber of Commerce, and a few other shops sit today. It was supposedly torn down in  1930s.
