Walking Papers

Today’s the 140th anniversary of the founding of the American Kennel Club (AKC for short). Without a doubt, we’re huge fans of dog shows; we’re big fans of dogs in general. We offer registered dogs & mixed breed dogs and we’re also happy to publish weekly updates from Griffin Pond Animal Shelter and SPCA of Luzerne…

Free & Easy

It’s the minimum age to be a candidate to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives. It’s the number of cents in a quarter. And it’s how many years of marriage mark a silver wedding anniversary. No matter how you slice it, 25’s a big deal. And with us? It’s a free deal. When you…

Give yourself a hand!

Or even better, 14.3 of them! In the market for a horse or pony? We’ve got ’em. If you’ve ever wondered how horses are measured, wonder no more! When you look at the ads in our Horses & Ponies category, you’ll see things like 16H or 14.3H in them. For those unfamiliar with equine lingo,…

Getting it Right (or Left)

Sure, the left-handed may comprise 15% of the population. And southpaws might tend to excel at abstract and creative thought. But these aren’t attributes that apply to the lefties we’re talking about here. Unless you’ve got some kind of magical plumbing, chances are your left-handed tub keeps its talents to itself. Yes, we said left-handed…

Catch Up

We love it when you catch our radio show live on Saturday mornings (that’s why we named it Paper Shop Live! and not something like Paper Shop Whenever Everyone Gets To It!). That said, we understand that life can get in the way of the best made plans, and even if you happen to catch…

Feeling salty?

Even if you aren’t, the roads are. Sidewalks, too. You’ve likely noticed dozens of trucks spreading salt over the last 24 hours or so, but did you ever wonder why? In a way, it’s a two-pronged assault on icy conditions. The main reason to spread salt over potentially icy areas is because the salt lowers…
