August 16th, 2014 by Richard Grinnell

Turpentine Creek Wildlife RefugeTurpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is the largest big cat sanctuary in the United States with over 130 beautiful animals on over 450 acres in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

How and why people and companies find themselves in possession of lions, tigers, cougars, cheetahs, or other big cats is another story but the fact of the matter is, more often than not, these animals prove to be more of a challenge than the owner had expected and, soon enough, they find themselves in need of a home for their erstwhile pet or mascot.

Asparagus Guacamole Roll

Mountain Sushi Japanese Restaurant

In the old Subway building in Eureka Springs a new Japanese Restaurant has opened serving Asian Fusion Japanese cuisine. The restaurant is Mountain Sushi and it has quickly become one of our favorite lunch places. The other night we decided to try dinner. We started with an Asparagus and Guacamole Roll and OMG, what a mouthful of flavor. We had Chicken Tempura and Chicken Tempura Fajita for our main entrees and found them to be excellent.
