If money was not a problem, I would be throwing the biggest, fanciest bash in San Francisco, and inviting everyone to come and party the night away… helping me to celebrate 25 years as an ordained Wiccan High Priestess.

And those of you who live a distance away need not worry… you would find a limo waiting at the door; compliments of yours truly, ready to transport you to the nearest airport, where a private jet will fly you to the City On the Bay… so you can join in the festivities.

But alas – I’ve got champagne taste and beer money. In another words… I’m broke, and there’s no pennies in the budget for parties.

So the best I can do is tell you to close your eyes while I wave my magic wand… and we shall be transported through the darkness to a time outside of time, and a place outside of space…

Enjoy the party – and please leave a comment so I know you were there!

P.S. You can check out the special Anniversary Honors here:

Since Ocean loves seafood,

we’re holding a good old-fashioned clambake on the beach!

To start us off,

there’s plenty of boiled shrimp served up with bowls of cocktail sauce…
