Possum Grape is (or at least was) the closest place to by beer if you went to school in Searcy.

Which is irrelevant since people who go to school in Searcy don't drink.

The vines are all in the timber, but I don't see much actual possum grape.  the japanese beetles have them et up before the fruit ever sets.  I always thought a possum grape was just wild grape, as opposed to a scupnun or muskydine.

Scuppernong and muscadine grow wild.  They were here before the white devils came.

If you're being fer real….

They're close to falling back right now, next weekend or in April. It gets confusing because sometimes they're 15 hours ahead of us and sometimes they're only 13 (we spring forward and they fall back.)

And it gets REALLY confusing these two or three weeks in between now that the U.S. starts before St. Patrick's Day and ends sometime after Halloween.

And if you think having Arizona and Hawaii doing their own thing makes things a little busy, check this aMm out.


You don't have to go that far to get into fricked up timekeeping.

Effective April 2, 2006 - all of Indiana observes daylight saving time. Effective April 2, 2006 - the eight Indiana counties of Daviess, Dubois, Knox, Martin, Perry, Pike, Pulaski and Starke moved from the Eastern to Central Time Zones.
Effective March 11, 2007 - Pulaski County moved back to the Eastern Time Zone. Previously Pulaski County had moved from Eastern to Central Time effective April 2, 2006. The Federal Government has approved Pulaski's request to return to the Eastern Time Zone.
Effective November 4, 2007 - The five counties of Daviess, Dubois, Knox, Martin, and Pike moved from Central to Eastern Time effective when Daylight Saving Time ended. The Federal Government did not approve Perry County's request to return to the Eastern Time Zone.

Note: This website lists official time zones as set by the U.S. Dept. of Transportation. Some communities and towns may choose not to observe these official times zones and this site does not reflect any such variances.

Indiana's crazy, but I give them credit for (1.) having all counties follow Daylight Time now and (B.) none of that weird half-hour bullshit.
