    People reveal what they would be willing to give up for Lent

    Lent begins today for some, which means having to give up something for 40 days and 40 nights.

    Local television station FOX 10 asked their viewers, who were partaking in Lent, what would they be giving up for Lent and these were the Top 5 answers.

    Rounding off the survey was meat, which the majority of those celebrating Lent do not eat on Fridays anyway, so abstaining from it altogether should not be too difficult unless you are a meat and potatoes kind of person.

    Coming in fourth was chocolate. You may have seen the gag gift, “In case of emergency break glass,” which reveals chocolate. Now that is a tough one! Chocolate is an aphrodisiac!

    Placing third in the poll was alcohol, which can be a struggle for some, especially those who go out on the weekends.

    And the runner-up was … Twitter! That is something the president should probably give up for Lent (or forever!)

    So that leaves us with the number one answer on the survey, which asks, if you had to give up something during Lent, what would it be? Most people answered social media! That would certainly be a hard one! Just ask your kids or any millennial! Could you give up social networking for 40 days and 40 nights?

    Some other things to consider giving up for Lent are swearing, fast food, sweets, maybe even smoking!

    If you had to give up something for 40 days and 40 nights, what would it be? For me, it would have to be caffeine. I would replace it with more water!

    Annual Mardi Gras celebrations promise lots of parties

    HAPPY MARDI GRAS!

    When you think of Mardi Gras, you likely picture colorful beads, elaborate masks, wild parades and general revelry. But how much do you really know about Mardi Gras?

    Those purple, green, and gold beads actually mean something. They come from King Cake, which is rumored to have come from France to New Orleans in 1870.

    Each color represents a different virtue. Purple for justice, green for faith, and gold for power.

    Beyond these traditional colors, hidden inside each cake is a plastic baby. That’s right: a baby.

    If you happen to get the slice with the plastic baby it’s considered good luck.

    Whatever you decide to do for Mardi Gras, be creative, have fun, and, most importantly, be safe.

    Spice Girls set to reunite for summer 2018

    A hit making girl group is reuniting for the masses, or at least for the United Kingdom, and United States, as TMZ reported.

    Mel B, Victoria Beckham, Geri Haliwell, Emma Bunton, and Melanie C, met with former manager Simon Fuller, who made a lifetime’s worth of loot creating “American Idol.” The collective discussed plans to perform again soon.

    The idea is to set off the tour late this summer.

    The Spice Girls will first hit the stage in England and then head to the U.S.

    As some fans may have hoped, there will be NO Vegas residency and no plan to record any new music.

    The hold-out was Victoria Beckham, known to fans as Posh Spice, though now she is officially on board.

    Sources told TMZ that “merchandising opportunities” may also be connected with the tour.

    At Hooters on Feb. 14, owners of a lonely heart can burn, bury, dart or shred a picture of their ex and be rewarded with free wings, according to a news release.

    The chain’s “Shred ’em and forget ’em” promotion offers a coupon for 10 free boneless wings when you buy 10 if you destroy a photo online or in participating restaurants.

    Customers can visit the Hooters website and take a short quiz about the former relationship. Then, they’ll be asked to upload and shred the photo online.

    In exchange, Hooters will email a coupon for the 10 boneless wings.

    The offer is valid for dine-in and only on Valentine’s Day. It can’t be combined with other offers or discounts, the company says.
