Here is a Friday puzzler for all you puzzle masters out there. You might be familiar with “Tale of Two Domes” a saga in which architect George R. Mann claimed that the Mississippi New Capitol building’s dome is based on his design for the Arkansas state capitol building. If you’re unfamiliar you can catch up on the 5 part story in the links below.

“Well Done! You did it in 01:17. The fastest time so far is 00:50.”
I had to click the link this time, by the way, using Chrome. Will check on some other browser.
My best time was 50 seconds, but someone has set a new record of 49 seconds.
That would be yours truly, of course.
If you get a chance, got to Crawford–preferably on a Saturday via the “scenic route” through Oktoc—and check out the M&O RR section house. It’s on Charlie Hairston Rd. down by the Tom Soya grain elevator bins. MDAH did a survey on the house last August when there were rumors that it was to be demolished. It was built, circa 1888. I hope it can be saved. You will pass by the oldest home in Crawford(circa) 1840–The Golden-Harvey house with the large 4-County Power association-butchered cedar trees in front.
But, I think 0:32 is as fast a time as I can set.
Phsh! Show off! :-)
