I’m proud to report that sometime while I was asleep Friday night, the number of views on our website, lakedarbonnelife.com went over the 100,000 mark! By today’s “viral” internet standards, that isn’t going to break any world records. But when it comes to a site about hunting and fishing in northeast Louisiana, begun right here in Union Parish, I’d say that’s mighty fine! There is no other site in the South that promotes a lake, a parish and a region’s outdoor resources exclusively like this one!

And by the way, that $100,000 bill . . .
Okay, there really WAS a $100,000 bill printed at one time and that is a picture of it. In 1934 Gold Certificate notes were printed featuring a portrait of Woodrow Wilson. The notes were printed from December 18, 1934, through January 9, 1935, and were used only for official transactions between Federal Reserve Banks and were not circulated among the general public. There are at least seven 1934 $100,000 Gold Certificates are still in existence and each is valued at $1.6 million. No, I don’t have one, but I do have three $2 bills and one $3 “Bill” (… with Bill Clinton’s picture on it. No. it is not a real bill).
