Many years ago while going through an intensely trying time in my life I had a problem.  I'd either grind my teeth or wake up with a terrible start that absolutely made my teeth bang together. Knowing teeth need to last a lifetime and mine were in danger of being ruined, I went to my favorite den...
I signed up for texting after a few friends said that I had to or I was grossly behind the times.  I paid for about 200 texts a month for about $5 added to my cell phone bill.  I discovered pretty quickly that my cell phone was not up-to-snuff because I had put in only 7 digits leaving off the pr...
When filling out info on a new listing for the Multiple Listing Service I always cringe when some things are asked. One of my least favorites is this in choices.  Wired for highspeed internet.  I always pass that one by because how can you actually tell?  One's idea of high speed may be dial up; ...
Looking through an old Historical Society book I found this house and just knew where it was located.  The nice curved porch support was unique.  So I decided to do a before and after shot.I drove by the house here just knowing I'd located the right house.  I snapped my photo and hurried back to...
I hate those popcorn ceilings!    You know what that is?  Textured ceilings that were used almost everywhere back in the 70's and 80's.  They even put glitter in some of them and that is REALLY hated now. Ugh!  These carpets would have to go.  Carpet used to cost more than hardwood floors!  Now t...
Being on Activerain has been interesting.  I've had people contact me that I never would have heard from otherwise.  This week I got an email from a Searcy resident who is a collector of maps.....lots of maps.  In fact he sells them on ebay and has a 100% satisfaction rating out of 1569 transacti...
Those of you who live in big towns have the opportunity to see big bands!  Big shows! In our town of 20,000, Searcy Arkansas, we don't get a lot of big-name folks.  I can remember, however, back when The Judds, Ricky Skaggs, The Carpenters and several other famous singers visited Harding Universi...
  I finally got my husband to visit the Bill Clinton Library, as it is generally known, as we went to participate in a putt-off contest in Little Rock.  He could have won a trip to the Masters but alas, he lost.  The Library is located at 1200 President Clinton Avenue in Little Rock Arkansas and ...
        Downtown Searcy ARKANSAS, corner of Arch and Spring Streets on the Square.   This is an old picture of Searcy Arkansas's Security Bank.  It is now called First Security Bank and is one of the strongest banks in the state. My next picture will show how it has been restored. Throughout the ...
We usually hate getting mail that is trying to get us to buy something, don't we?  Not as much as we hate telemarketers but we usually glance at it and then throw it in the trash. Mail a few days ago, however, caught my eye.  There was this fantastic photo of an old truck with Sowell's Home Supp...
