In the 1950s and 60s we had Audrey Hepburn and Hollywood’s Golden Age. Then the New Age of Hollywood appeared.

In 1959, this little deer named Pippin was definitely in the right day and age.

Ladies, I always pass the white glove test when I use my Mr. Scrubbalot multi-surface scrubber with fresh pinecone scent. You should too.

In honor of Veteran’s Day, we would like to salute all the furry-four-legged troopers! For all their bravery, we thank them.

This is Sergeant Stubby, a homeless pup in 1919 who became the mascot for America’s 102nd “Yankee” Infantry Division in France. Stubby alerted soldiers to the threat of mustard gas in time for them to don their protective masks, captured a spy all by himself and was decorated many times for, “heroism of the highest caliber”. Stubby was also famous for boosting morale in the trenches and cheering the wounded in hospital.
