There’s always one — the house that kids make a beeline for while trick-or-treating, the address where king-size candy bars are handed out and nary an apple is seen. That house. But if you want to establish neighborhood dominance this year, there’s more to take into consideration than simply offering colossal Hershey bars. We chatted with Scott Kazlouskas-Noyes, general manager of Provincetown’s Cabot’s Candy (which has a second location in Cambridge), about the best ways to please everyone ringing your doorbell this Halloween. A Cabot’s employee for 18 years, Kazlouskas-Noyes knows his way around sugar, and the candies to buy if you want to kill it this year. 1. Pucker up! Sour candies are having a moment Though often considered a polarizing type of candy, Kazlouskas-Noyes said sour treats are among Cabot’s most frequent requests. “Sour Patch Kids are one of our top sellers,” Kazlouskas-Noyes said. “People come … [Read more...] about How to be the house that everyone wants to visit on Halloween, according to a candy expert
Oblivion how to buy a house
ROSEWOOD — The house went on the market at the end of May — a three-story Victorian with stained-glass windows, surrounded by 35 acres. But there’s no sign in the yard. A state plaque out on the road to Cedar Key, where tourists stop to take pictures. And others drive by, shooting holes into the metal marker. “We aren’t advertising it much locally,” says the owner, Fuji Scoggins. “We don’t want any trouble from the neighbors.” When she and her husband moved there 40 years ago, they didn’t know about the history of the home, what the former owner did — or the town of 300 African Americans that a white mob torched into oblivion. They had no idea that their house was the only remnant of Rosewood, Fla. “Not until that reporter came around,” says Fuji. “Then, all of a sudden, we had TV crews and people from all over jumping the fence.” On a hot, humid afternoon, she sinks into a red rocker on … [Read more...] about The last house in Rosewood
Fort Edward Something Judge Kelly McKeighan said stopped Ashley Livingston in her tracks. "He looked at me and he said, 'I just wish you could see what other people see in you,' and honestly my first thought was, what on earth is he talking about?" she recalled. Until that moment in 2013, standing before the Washington County judge, Livingston had been content to go to prison for seven years on felony drug charges. Prison, she thought, is where I belong. She was a junkie, a criminal, a literal punching bag for not one but two ex-boyfriends. What could anyone possibly see in her? Livingston had felt something like promise once. When she had Oxycontin (first prescribed to her at 16 after an older boyfriend beat her up so badly she developed bone spurs) she excelled. She was great at school. She wrote papers better and faster. She mastered physical therapy. She graduated high school, got into college, got right up to her first midterm when — out of pills and puking from withdrawal … [Read more...] about She almost went to prison. A judge had a better idea.

Pokemon Company/Niantic All Tech Considered To Be The Very Best: Pokémon Enters Into Augmented Reality Full disclosure, here at the start: I don't know Pokemon. That's not technically true; here's a list of everything I knew about Pokemon before playing the new smartphone app, Pokemon GO (this knowledge absorbed solely through cultural osmosis, given the phenomenon's ubiquity). 1. Pikachu is a kind (species?) of Pokemon. It is an "electric-type" Pokemon. It is yellow. It has a cutesy voice. Said voice is profoundly annoying. 2. Squirtle is another kind of Pokemon, a "water-type" Pokemon. It, as one might imagine, squirts. 3. There are many different kinds of Pokemon, of many different types. 4. These many different types include: … [Read more...] about Gotta Catch ‘Em All, Or At Least A Few: A Pokemon Neophyte Tries ‘Pokemon GO’
