The finality of an acronym

posted: 06/29/2014 2 a.m. Comments 6

Recently I came across a bit of trivia, a snippet of knowledge. An interesting fact. And so I thought, "I'll tell Dad." Next time I see him.

Glassworks in the greenery

The winding paths of Garvan Woodland Gardens are lined with flora from around the world, with bridges and streams that span and cut through the rocky landscape.

Proceeding legally through a traffic light is hazardous to your health

We’ve all had that moment when time seems to stand still, when the seconds ooze out like drops from a slowly leaking faucet. Most times it’s when the message “Your call will be answered in the order it was received... your call is very important to us” has drilled its way into your head.

EXHIBIT: 40 Disfarmer photos in show

A tale of Two Rivers

posted: 10/18/2011 4:10 a.m. Gallery Discuss

On a recent Friday it rained, surprisingly, slightly annoyingly, pattering down onto the Two Rivers Park well-dried landscape. The drops that missed me splashed noisily onto the leafy canopy that covered most of the paved paths that wind through the park.

All hot and bothered

In case you haven’t noticed, somehow forgotten or are new to the area, Arkansas summers are pretty hot. If you haven’t noticed, you’re probably a victim of thermophilia, a completely made up malady wherein the sufferer cannot feel excessive heat. These lucky people, if they existed, would not be experiencing the fiery heck the rest of us are going through.

Exercism

There comes a moment in our lives when it becomes vitally important to exercise, to slow down the inevitable effects of aging. Unfortunately that moment is seconds after birth.

No loafing
