college football...2 days AWAY and counting until the Arkansas Razorbacks take the field and begin what has the makings of being a very good season.

John L Smith, Tyler Wilson, Knile Davis, Tank

Hopefully all of the hype and the grandeur will happen as expected and the Hogs will have that great year.  However,  an injury here or there could take away all of those great expectations.

All i can say right now is GO HOGS!

Petit Jean Mountain.

If you live anywhere close to Petit Jean Mountain and you have not been there then you are missing a beautiful place.  I just spent a couple of days there at the Winrock Institute but also went to Petit Jean State Park.  Here are some of the pictures that I took.

 A plaque discussing the River and the Mountain and its affect on the area.  This is at the overlook of the River Valley

The Arkansas River from the Overlook.  This picture does not do justice to the view and the amount of the country that you can see.  This is simply amazing.

The rest of the Valley from the overlook.  It is almost as you are on top of the world.  

Winthrop Rockefeller Institute.  A very nice conference center on top of the Mountain.  This was a time lapse picture taken after dark.  This was originally a large working cattle ranch.  The place is very nice.

Some of the Water features around the Rockfeller Institute.  These are very nice.  This is a time lapse at night of the feature.

The Rains Came.

Burt Lancaster in the Rainmaker gives the great line after a long speech.


What a great line for us at this time.   Arkansas was needing rain.

Hope you got some rain.

Net10 Phones and Plans for Everyone!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

What does your plan do for you.  That is what you should be asking.   Not what can I do for my cell phone plan but what can my cell phone plan do for me.  So many times it seems that we live for and are held hostage by our cell phone company and the plans that they have for us. 

This is not so anymore.  You need to see the Light like many others have seen.  Yes, a real NET10 customer knows that you can get what you need with Net10 and that their Net10 Unlimited is a great deal. With it you can get nationwide coverage and unlimited talk, text, and data, for $50 a month.  Can your present company do that?  Yes NET10 does that and there are no contracts, no surprises on your bill and they don't need to check your credit.  You can see that and other options and preferences from watching this cute NET10 commercial,

You can also see what Rob has to say as a real NET10 customer.

You get all of this in plans along with the fact that they use great phones like LG like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung.  With these phones they give you nationwide coverage and great reception.  Can you hear me now?

Check out how NET10 really works at there you can find out how this is not only a great idea for your personal cell phone but it is great and useful for your business as well.

Net10 has many plans such as::

• The Easy Minutes Plus plan is an automatic minutes plan that starts at $15.00 for 200 minutes.

• With Pay-As-You-Go Plans, your minutes carry over with active service.

• Unlimited Minutes, Text and Web for $50.00/month.

The educated customer would also know that you can switch between plans each month to suit your budget and airtime needs, without penalties or fees and their Anytime air plan can be purchased online, at a nearby store, or directly from your phone.

International Long Distance also is a question that many people have.  Net10 gives you long Distance Service which is available to over 75 countries, for about 15 cents per minute on calls originated in the US.  There is also an International Neighbors program available to Canada and Mexico. This program gives you a special phone number that your family and friends can use to reach you at your NET10 number.

Phone Selection is something mentioned earlier.  They can provide all the way from simple phones for simple needs, calling and texting capabilities for under $15.00 but they can also provide phones with essential features, such as camera, video recorder, blue tooth capability, mobile web and more for under $40.00.  They have phones that have  full QWERTY keyboards, slider phones, and touch screen phones, with all the basics plus great app capabilities, camera and video recorder, web access, etc., available for under $60.00.

Have you figured out yet that this company has a good deal of options that can free you from the old statement by your company that says here is what you get.

Check out Net10.  Join them on Facebook and Twitter.

These are my thoughts for now.  Excuse me while I check out my NET10 Phone.

Roommates are Awful

Guest post from: Natalie Walter

Honestly, I was just sick and tired of living with roommates…I was too old for it and the girls I was living with were absolutely driving me crazy! I wished for the longest time I could afford to move out and get a place of my own but that wasn’t really an option until last year when my uncle passed and left me some money. I found a great little townhome and snapped it up immediately – I couldn’t wait to live alone! I had it all decked out with security features like a Http:// alarm and new deadbolts for the doors and I even had someone come in and put in crown molding so I could get better resale value out of the house. I love living by myself and not having to clean up after anyone or babysit and hope I can continue this forever without having to find a roommate to help me pay the mortgage! Living by myself was totally, one hundred percent worth it.

Saturday, August 6, 2011  Have you been to this website?  If you or anyone you know has a need to wear scrubs or even if you like to wear scrubs as an every day attire, this is a place to look at.  Yes, every where you go today you see people wearing scrubs and honestly, I believe that these people look very nice, professional and attractive.

I believe there is nothing better than to go into an office and nurses in uniform are everywhere looking sharp and getting their job done.  Well, this is what can happen to you and your office if your folks will look at blueskyscrubs.  Look at their site.  They have the scrubs for your and what you do and they can get those to you at a reasonable price.

So, back to the real question.  Do you want to look sharp, feel sharp and give off a professional appearance?  If this is true and you are finding yourself buying scrubs at higher prices than necessary then you need to get to BlueSkyscrubs and find their great selection at great prices.

Tell them I sent you and that will get you nothing, but you can do it anyway!

That is my thoughts for now.
