Special Radio Show I'm proud of!

I am proud to be part of a fast  growing radio show on Saturday mornings - which is all about  collecting, antiques, home decor, crafts, gardening and more - called  Marc Speaking. Wanna listen in tomorrow? I think you'll enjoy it!  Show starts after the news at 10 AM on our sister station:

Thanks to the radio show's success - Marc recently opened a local store  called "Cherry Hill Home". It's a fantastic home decor store full of  antiques and one of a kind creations!  Visit Cherry Hill Home Fridays  and Saturdays at 2811 Tamiami Trail, Port Charlotte (on the access road -  same building as Labcorp, and straight across from the old Whiskey Creek restaurant) 


The Most Popular Halloween Candy In Each State

October 26, 2018

 New list reveals the Halloween candy preferences from across the country

  • Bulk candy seller The Candy Store has come out with their annual list of the most popular Halloween candy in each state
  • Candy Corn is by far the most popular, being the top choice for seven states
  • Not all states go with popular choices, with Connecticut the only state that favors Almond Joys, while Nebraska and Washington love Salt Water Taffy

With Halloween less than a week away folks better run to the store to get their candy for trick or treaters unless they want to be left with the stuff nobody wants. So, what candies do most people prefer to hand out? Well, turns out, it depends on where you live.

Online bulk candy seller The Candy Store has come out with their annual list of the most popular Halloween candy in each state, and while some candies, like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Candy Corn and Skittles, are preferred in a lot of states, there are some places that don’t confirm to the norm.

For example, folks in Connecticut are big fans of Almond Joys, while those in Louisiana love Lemonheads, and Hot Tamales are big in Indiana, North Dakota and Virginia. Another odd favorite? Salt Water Taffy, which is the most popular in Nebraska and Washington.
