Florence, Italy -- A "magic powder" sold by a German company that allegedly turns water into Chianti wine is a dubious trick, angry Italian farmers say.
The Web site for the German company, Trek'n Eat, promises that its "magic" powder, when mixed with water, allows mountain hikers to enjoy a glass of Chianti at the summit of their climbs, the Italian news agency ANSA reported.
But that's nonsense, says the Tuscany branch of farmers' association Coldiretti, reportedly asserting that the drink is a "terrible copy" of real Chianti wine, which, it says, "is made from grapes and not packets of powder from which hodgepodges are made."
Pembroke Pines, Fla. -- An 81-year-old magician says he is deeply in love with his new 79-year-old wife, who he met during a magic show in Florida.
Magician Joseph Marker said he met Camille Lewis last May at Southwest Focal Point Senior Center in Pembroke Pines when he asked her to serve as his show assistant, and less than a year later the couple married there, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Sunday.
"We just fell in love and are always telling each other that we love each other," Marker said. "It's so nice to be together."
The senior couple will always have a little mystery in their relationship as Marker refuses to share his magic secrets with his bride.
"I don't want to know. I like the surprise," Lewis said of those secrets. "I just can't figure it out."
