Trained motor-buggy technicians at Thomasville Toyota examine and purify foreign and domestic vehicles during the one-hour 19-point inspection, which includes an air-conditioner sanitizer. Fluids such as power-steering, coolant, differential, transmission, brake master cylinder, and windshield-washer wait patiently for an inspection and the cool kiss of a liquid top-off, and air filters, exhaust systems, and hoses are inspected by a magnifying glass on reprieve from the doldrums of ant observing in the sun. Rubber wheels are then investigated for rough wear, and tire pressure is checked and adjusted to appropriate levels. Rid jalopies of mold, pollen, dust, and other floating particles with the air-conditioner sanitizer, and ensure that cars are allergen-free and smell as fresh as laundry that's been drying in a perpetual wind tunnel.

Located down the street from Sweet Grass Dairy, Blue Coop's cheese selection satisfies everyone from supertasters to extremely picky Packers fans.
Automatic scoring systems track players' scores as they launch bowling balls down the Capital Lanes' 40 polished alleys. Lasers and black lights illuminate the play area on cosmic-bowling nights, and families share hot snacks from the full-service bar and grill during league play, but bowling isn't the only attraction at the center. Teams battle one another for arena domination in the laser-tag maze, and—a short walk away—the game room recognizes players ability to wield a joystick and to find change in seat cushions.
