    A feng shui master is a person who knows the art of feng shui. It's an old Chinese art of positioning furniture in your home, buildings within the city as well as shrubs and trees. The whole idea is to achieve harmony through a careful placement of those objects so they correspond with the positive energies and work against the negative ones.

    a Jiminy Cricket-- size business - a very small business ( Jimminy Cricket is a Disney character)
    financial sinkhole -is a financial disaster, money being poured into something, irrecoverable, throwing money out the window.

    Mouseketeers - teenage cast from an old show (50's) called "Mickey Mouse Club". They all wore black caps with Mickey Mouse ears on top.
