“Chess is as elaborate a waste of human intelligence as you can find outside an advertising agency.”

― Raymond Chandler  



From blue skies to open highways:

more ways to take off,

handle stress,

island spirit.


The world’s biggest and brightest pumpkin patches,

locally sourced

always one of a kind.

Enter to win!


Handsome men’s club

Open for business.

You’ll love what you hear,

and what you don’t.


Kick back. All the way back.

In business, you don’t get what you deserve—

you get what you negotiate.


Outside the box

accentuate the positive.

Inside animal minds

the anxiety solution for dogs. (And cats.)


It takes decades of hard work to shave off a few seconds.

The best medicine




A season of giving.

Winter wonderland.

One gift. A million*** thank yous.

Lettuce rejoice.


In the US, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year. It used to be the official start of the Christmas shopping season, but today, sales start after Halloween.
