Deadline

Beware the Ides of March! Or, you know, don’t. Unless you’re Caesar (or someone who needs to be absolutely sure your ad appears in the next issue of Paper Shop), you’ll probably be okay. Friday is the day that we wrap up our week’s work, give the paper a final go-over, and send the whole…

Wheels. And Deals!

Ready to get your motor runnin’? Head out on the highway? Yeah, us too. Some people gauge the arrival of spring by the first crocus to peep out of the snow or by the appearance of the first robin, but not us. We know spring’s on its way when our Motorcycle category begins taking off.…

Hop to it!

Ale. Lager. Porter. Stout. Light or dark, hoppy or malty. How do you like your brew? If you’re American, chances are that you like it cold. And we’ve got you covered!

Prom with Aplomb

It’s said that every journey begins with a single step; even so, it’s odd to think that one of the culminating events of the High School experience takes its name from a simple walk. You might have already guessed that Prom is a shortened form of the word promenade, but did you ever wonder what…

140

It’s the atomic number of Unqadnilium (yikes!). The age at which Job supposedly died. The phone number for you’d dial for directory assistance if you found yourself in Cairo. It also happens to be the maximum number of characters that can be used in a tweet. You know us. We’re friendly, open and tend toward…

Clip, Clip Hooray!

Even if you’re not particularly extreme, chances are you’ve clipped a coupon or two at some point. After all, over 80% of Americans use coupons – even if it’s just once in a while.

Saturday’s St. Patrick Day, and that can only mean it’s time for the wearin’ o’ the … blue?! Yes, blue. As strange as it seems to us now, the color originally associated with St. Pat was not emerald, but azure. However, owing to the holiday’s spring timing, the colors of the Irish flag, and that…

Under Pressure

We all are. Literally! At sea level, the Earth’s  atmosphere exerts 14.7 PSI (pounds per square inch) of pressure, so our bodies think that 14.7 PSI is completely normal; you’re completely unaware of this pressure that operates on and in you at all times. In fact, we’re willing to bet that most people don’t think…

It’s about time!

The times, they are a-changin’. And to that? We say “good”! We’re happy to spring forward and adjust our clocks accordingly. We’ll still have our same office hours, and the change to Daylight Savings Time won’t have any affect on our ability to get all ads posted on findnflip.com within 30 minutes of when we…
