$1200 for Charge and Cease Fire. The latter was an educated guess based on the clue rather than knowing the call.

If it's not already, "South Carolina island" probably needs to be a pavlov to Hilton Head - at least for me. I'm sure I've seen that one multiple times on J! and I miss it every time.
Better make that South Carolina island RESORT = Hilton Head. South Carolina island + Marines = Parris, and that comes up from time to time. And South Carolina island + opera = Porgy and Bess.

EDIT: Admittedly the clue in this game didn't mention the word "resort". But if you can't figure out which pavlov corresponds to "more than 20 championship golf courses", maybe you should give up on Jeopardy! and try Wheel instead.
What? What'd I say?

what about daniel island home to the volvo car open (tennis) formerly known as the family circle cup?

We in the peanut gallery that day were quick to agree on the brutality of the bugle category.

Go stuff yourself.

And your images are not working.
I'm already stuffed. I'd post a picture to prove it, but....

Are my images not working for others as well? I can see them just fine on a Windows PC in Firefox, even when I'm not signed into the Google account where they're stored.

Nuttin' honey.

There's probably a way for me to fix it when I have a chance.

As for me, if I were in the army, apparently I'd be running every which way except the way I was supposed to.
