If today is your birthday: It’s your birthday and you can be a big whinny moaning cry-baby if you want to, but nobody will come to your party. Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) Wonders never cease!!! You will get the house spotlessly clean for a grand total of ten minutes before your family comes home and lays your hard work to waste. Hey… look on the bright side. Ten minutes is a new record. Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) You are the most intelligent person that we know. Oh, no…. this horoscope is not meant for you. Sorry for the confusion. Pisces (February 19 – March 20) For some strange reason, you will hear train horns blaring all day long. Don’t ask us what that means. We don’t know, either. And no… it’s not just some random thing that we pulled out of mid-air… it’s what’s in your stars. We did not arrange the stars in order to drive you nuts with the sound of train horns, so stop accusing us! Aries (March 21 – April 19) Stop playing dumb. You know you took the cookie from the cookie jar. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) When it comes to matters of the heart, your monitors have flat-lined and the doctors are calling for the time. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) You should apologize to your wife. It doesn’t matter that you didn’t do anything. The gesture will go a long way towards improving your sleeping arrangements. We’re just looking out for you; we know that the couch hurts your back. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Don’t leave your chair. Really… This is not some lame justification for laziness… The floor around you is actually molten lava. Touching it with even your toe will make you burst into flames. Leo (July 23 – August 22) Speaking of lame justifications for laziness… Your floor is not lava, but you can claim that it is because your boss is close to someone who tried to touch the floor and it didn’t end well for them. Virgo (August 23 – September 22) Do you remember the dream about the hottie with the sweet smile that was so into you? That was a really great dream, wasn’t it!? Libra (September 23 – October 22) When the going gets tough, you curl up in the fetal position, suck your thumb and call for your mommy! Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) If you make mountains out of mole hills, a giant mole will crawl out, dig you out of your house and gobble you up. And you thought that they weren’t carnivores. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) Is it starve a cold and feed a fever or the other way around? You should really find out before next week.]]]]> ]]>
Find a gold ticket, have a chance to win 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
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.
