Horoscopes for March 23, 2011

If today is your birthday: It’s your birthday! Today you will get to eat your cake and have it too. Don’t be excited. You will find out how this all plays out later. Enjoy your margarita. Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) You will try to answer an new age question.  Why do drink machines accept paper money but gas pumps don’t?  Your answer must be type-written and double-space.  Proper punctuation and spelling is required. Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) If you are looking to the stars to help guide your path in life, you should probably wear shades during the day because that big star in the sky that we call the sun can blind you if you stare at it directly. Pisces (February 19 – March 20) Might we suggest a meal fit for a dorm room.  Ramen Noodles and Potted Meat Sandwiches.  The electric bill will arrive tomorrow and you’ll be thankful that we warned you! Aries (March 21 – April 19) There are a few things that you should avoid today… they include, but are not limited to, using telephones, walking, eating your toenails, sharing Twinkies with the neighbor’s dog, marbles, powdered milk, mints, work, birds that have yellow beaks, apple flavored potato chips, imitation cheese slices, people who have hyphenated last names, energy bars, polyester bed sheets, printed calendars, purple ink pens, fluffy woodland creatures and, above all else, Frisbees. Taurus (April 20 – May 20) You will spend an inordinately large amount of time today trying to figure out the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R.  This will add to your stress level and will make everyone in the store stare at you strangely.  We suggest using the power of the internet and doing the research there.   You’ll still waste the time, but, unless you’re Skype-ing, no one will be the wiser. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) When in Rome…  wait… if you’re in Rome and I’m sitting here eating Cheetos and writing horoscopes for you to read… there’s a serious problem…  Why didn’t you take me to Rome with you.  What.  You’re too good for the company of a psychotic rat… I mean a psychic reader like me?   I hope the Colisseum falls down while you’re there and the Italian authorities blame you for the whole thing and you get chased by thousands of Romans with big wooden sticks and the Pope denies you asylum, you self-centered, egotistical, pompous…  Oh… sorry… I didn’t see until just now that you planned this trip long before we met….  so… When in Rome… Remember… they didn’t invent pizza… Americans did! Cancer (June 21 – July 22) There is no shame in surrender.  Surrender to your inner desire to eat twelve pints of Haagen-Dazs ice cream while watching Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Big & Turner & Hooch.  It’s a Tom Hanks kind of day.  Avoid re-runs of Bosom Buddies! Leo (July 23 – August 22) You will see an unusually large amount of paper clips today.  Have some fun… hook them together and try to make a tree for Christmas. Virgo (August 23 – September 22) The answer you seek is written on the back of a napkin that was thrown in the trash bin near the corner of Washington and Clay Streets.  If you get there quickly, you’ll be able to dig it out before Bubba throws his spit cup on top of it. Libra (September 23 – October 22) You will develop an aversion to scented candles.  There’s nothing wrong with your nose.  One of your friends replaced all of your candles with prank candles that smell like cow patties. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) Yesterday was a figment of your imagination. So yesterday is today and today won’t happen until tomorrow. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) Go nuts.  Really.  You should have some cashews, walnuts, almonds… some sort of nut should really be in your pocket today.  The squirrels will demand them.  Oh… by the way.  They hate, and we mean HATE, pistachios.]]]]> ]]>

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

Published

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.
