  • BACK FROM STRUDEL LAND: Little Rock called me home yesterday.

Yes, I'm back in Little Rock after two weeks in Hungary, Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, a feast of beer, bread and architecture. I posted quite a few photos on my Facebook page.

The Times crew kept me abreast of events here. I've missed a relentless onslaught of news releases, dark money advertising and wildly misleading electioneering, but it doesn't appear things have much changed. My take on polls is that the yellow dog voter now trends Republican in Arkansas, but the percentage is still less than a majority. Is there a silent majority lurking in the undecided and "independent" voters? We'll soon know.

That strudel was a Prague version. A guide on a walking tour of Prague for food lovers told me that there are dozens if not hundreds of different ways to make strudel in Mittel Europa. Hard to go wrong with apples and pastry dough.

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
