    When is your mock?

    I'm leaving in a few hours, and will be gone for the weekend. Should be home late Sunday or Monday. Depends ......

    Hey, I'll actually be real near Shamrock, TX on Sunday. I have to pick a load of beef up North of Amarillo (Cactus, TX) on Sunday and bring it back to the Alamo.

    I'll be all over Texas the week of the 19th. Amarillo is on the roadmap and so are a bunch of other towns throughout. I'll be in Houston for a couple of days and Dallas one other day.

    I need names of good BBQ places throughout quick! I was in Dallas last week, and the place they took some folks to stunk. :tdown:

    Many place names in our state, including Arkansas, are French pronunciations of Indian words.

    At the time of the early French exploration, a tribe of Indians, the Quapaws, lived West of the Mississippi and north of the Arkansas River. The Quapaws, or OO-GAQ-PA, were also known as the downstream people, or UGAKHOPAG. The Algonkian-speaking Indians of the Ohio Valley called them the Arkansas, or "south wind."

    The state's name has been spelled several ways throughout history. In Marquette and Joliet's "Journal of 1673", the Indian name is spelled AKANSEA. In LaSalle's map a few years later, it's spelled ACANSA. A map based on the journey of La Harpe in 1718-1722 refers to the river as the ARKANSAS and to the Indians as LES AKANSAS. In about 1811, Captain Zebulon Pike, a noted explorer, spelled it ARKANSAW.

    During the early days of statehood, Arkansas' two U.S. Senators were divided on the spelling and pronunciation. One was always introduced as the senator from "ARkanSAW" and the other as the senator from "Ar-KANSAS." In 1881, the state's General Assembly passed a resolution declaring that the state's name should be spelled "Arkansas" but pronounced "Arkansaw."

    The pronunciation preserves the memory of the Indians who were the original inhabitants of our state, while the spelling clearly dictates the nationality of the French adventurers who first explored this area.
