If today is your birthday: Speak your mind. That is unless your mind tells you not to speak. Then all you can do is try not to freak out in public. Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) Pretend that you are guiding a giant balloon in a parade. Wobble from side to side with your hands in front of you holding the strings. Every now and then, say, “Wooaahhh!” Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) Repetition is the key to success today. Repetition is the key to success today. Pisces (February 19 – March 20) Throw the whole ‘team mentality’ thing out the window. You should be out for you (and the rats) today. Aries (March 21 – April 19) You will feel like a stranger in your own home tonight. It of course doesn’t help that you drove to your old address and the new owners won’t stop crying, “Please don’t kill us!”   Taurus (April 20 – May 20) Just when you are getting the hang of your new job, they throw a curveball at you. “You want me to offer them fries AND pie?!?” Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Hard times are ahead. You should be proactive and start a firefly farm to supply everyone with light when electricity gets too expensive. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Look on the bright side. Make sure you put on your shades first. Leo (July 23 – August 22) You will be struck with inspiration this afternoon. It will hurt. You will cry. Virgo (August 23 – September 22) You should speak extra slowly today. Lllliiiikkkkkeeee ttttthhhiiiisssss. Libra (September 23 – October 22) Say what you mean and make sure that you meant to say it out loud. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) Go directly to jail. Don’t even ask about your $200, they don’t like it when you do that. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) The status is not quo. It has never been quo. Quo is just a figment of your imagination.]]]]> ]]>

Find a gold ticket, have a chance to win a candy factory

David Klein, aka the Candyman, is giving away a candy factory

Lovers of puzzles and jellybeans have a chance to win their very own candy factory.

David Klein, affectionately known as The Candyman, is excited to announce a worldwide treasure hunt. Klein, the founder of The Jelly Belly jellybeans and Tricky Treasures, is getting ready to retire, but not before he has some fun and not before he gives back to everyone who loves the candy industry like he does.

David and his partner have started going across the U.S. hiding gold tickets in the form of necklaces in places they come across with an interesting story. Plans are to have multiple treasure hunts for these gold tickets in each state. You can join one of their treasure hunts which are launching right now at www.TheGoldTicket.com.

The biggest and best part of these treasure hunts is that anyone who joins at least one treasure hunt, will be eligible to search for The Ultimate Treasure: the key to one of his candy factories and an all-expense paid trip and education to a candy-making university. He will add this treasure hunt after all the states have had a chance to play. Each treasure hunt is valued at $5,000 and cost is only $49.99 to enter a hunt. Each treasure hunt has a strict limit of 1,000 participants, no exceptions.

“With The Gold Ticket Treasure hunt, our goal is to get people out and about with their families. Grandma and Grandpa can even join with the kids and grandkids,” Klein said in a release. “Take videos of your treasure hunt experiences for possible inclusion in our upcoming series.”

Please go to www.TheGoldTicket.com and watch David’s documentary, “Candyman The David Klein Story,” for free and be inspired. Also, join the Facebook page for more information. The Gold Ticket Treasure Hunt would be a GREAT gift this holiday season. Join David on this Willy Wonka® fantastical journey across America and see if you can find one of his elusive gold tickets.

Booze Fairies are ‘dusting’ Vicksburg with the joy of giving

Published

on

In a time when most of us could use some good news and something to make us smile, a group on Facebook is doing just that.

Booze Fairies of Vicksburg is made up of women in the area who just want to make someone’s day a little better.

Women who sign up in the private group make a short list of the kinds of little things that would make them happy—a favorite cocktail, snack, or other little tidbits. Other women in the group can choose one or more people to make happy, whether it’s women they know or random strangers in their neighborhood. The women put together baskets or boxes with goodies and deliver them to other members. How much to spend is completely up to the giver, who can remain anonymous or not.

Think of it like a big game of Secret Santa, only for the times of COVID-19.

“There are no rules,” said member Heather Williams. “just go make somebody happy.”

Williams, who taught elementary school at the Sherman Avenue School for 25 years, said she’s delivered four baskets so far, two to women she knows and two others to strangers. Everything she bought was from the Dollar Tree store. She just made sure it was fun.

She used glittery party hats for her baskets, then added balloons, a pair of sunglasses, candy and crackers. Just little things, she said.

“It’s nice to get them,” she said, “and actually, it’s fun to go deliver, too. … You wouldn’t believe how much fun that is.”

After women get “dusted” or “boozed,” they will put up a photo of their goodies on the group page.

“You get to show it off,” Williams said. “It’s just neat. I thought it was a great idea.”

“I’m just sick of people being ugly to each other,” she said, and this makes her feel good and makes the recipients feel good. It’s a win-win.

Retailers, such as Toney’s 61N Liquor & Wine, are reportedly starting to offer discounts for Booze Fairy purchases.  

Williams has also received a basket with Margarita mix, Funyons, gum, Skittles, a pretty little magnet and a candle.

“I was having a rough day, and I got home and there it was,” she said. “It made me feel better.”

Booze Fairies of Vicksburg was started by Whitney Porter and has nearly 3,000 members.
