Can You Find All The Peanut Statues In Dothan Alabama?
Chey Huston-McCrea

When talking about lower Alabama, many people think about the boll weevil, an insect, and how it destroyed the cotton crops. When this happened, George Washington Carver introduced the farmers to peanut crops. Because of this, the farmers started to rotate crops, and the peanut industry began.

The Alabama Peanut Producers Association (APPA) is located in Dothan, Alabama and is where the "Peanuts Around Town" is located. This project started as a fundraiser to help restore downtown Dothan, and many artists designed the peanuts that are, quite literally, all around town. My two friends from Maine and I ran around this month, March 2017, and found most of them. Here is just a few from our adventure around town.

To Begin:

Find the Dothan Visitors Headquarters and grab yourselves a handy dandy map of where to find most of the Peanut Statues. Be aware the map is not updated and does not say if you have to go inside or not so you may find a few hidden treasures or may even have to go inside a doctors office.

The Original Golden Nut and Elvis-


These nutters are found at the Visit Dothan Headquarters. As as you see with Elvis, and many other photos, my friend is being her nutty self.

Kiss Goodbye to Cancer-


#ShesOurFavoriteSuvior. Ashley (in the middle) was diagnosed in November 2014 with Hodgkins Lymphoma and was deemed to be in remission in December of 2015! We love you, Ash!

Media Nut-

We decided it was our (Me-middle, Jessie-Right) time to shine and get in on this Nutty Broadcast!

Nuts About Safety-

!

Stop, Drop and Roll! This nutty fire hydrant and Dalmatian, located at the Dothan Fire Department, is here to tell y'all how to be safe!

Health Nut

This nut! Oh my, if you are looking for the actual "Health Nut" that is on the map you'll have to venture into Southeast Alabama Medical Center. This is the nut that will pop up on google though when you try to hunt him down online, and we got a little irritated as it took us almost an hour to hunt down this guy who was on the other side of town!

Captain Cash-

All he was doing was trying to save our money but no, Ashley The Villain had to punch him in the nose!

Noki The Nut-

"Can you hear me now?" ...Oh, wait that's Version..Oops?

Sherrif Sam-

Sherrif Sam, stopping donut crimes since he was placed there.

Mr. Sam's Club-

"Too cool for your membership."

Gone Shopping-

Some of the Peanut statues are not in good shape. Luckily for this gal, only her shopping bags were missing.

Grits On The Side-

Mr. Grits was located at an abandoned dance club and is one of the seven nuts not on the map. (There could be more than seven, though!)

CarMax Nut-

This dude needs to watch where he's going. He is also not on the map.

Wild Blue-

Wild Blue is definitely not on the map either, and we found him by complete accident when looking for Mr. Sam's Club!

Where's Percy?

It is said that every Peanut has a story, well we have a new story for Percy the UPS Nut. The photo above was not taken on the day we did our hunt. In this picture, it is evident that he is outside and that is exactly where we looked for him. Well after circling the building looking for Percy, we asked one of the workers to help us find him, and he gives us directions as to where Percy should be. We pulled up to Percy's spot, and he was gone! We circle the building again just to let the workers know that he was missing and the guys leans back and yells, "Percy's gone?" To another coworker leading to a different worker walking over to find Percy. The new guy then explains that Percy may be out getting fixed and that the boss man would know the truth. I think Percy just wanted to help the men out and make a delivery run!

Doing the Peanut Hunt should definitely be on the list of things you should do when visiting lower Alabama or even if you are a resident of the area and never have actually gone out to do it yet. There are over 30 Peanut statues around Dothan, and I have just one question.... Can you find them all?

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

236395

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

The Best Bagel Recipes For Every Personality Type, In Case You Need Another Excuse To Eat Carbs

I'll approve of pasta for breakfast any day, but this is more socially acceptable.

I've had times in my life at which I've told myself I need to cut out carbs. Those moments last about a minute or two before I start daydreaming about rice and pasta.

Bagels hold a special place in my heart — for many of my college friends and me, a bagel sandwich was the go-to breakfast after a long night of drinking. Years later, I still love to indulge in the occasional carb-filled breakfast. As much as I love putting in an UberEats order from bed, nothing beats the feeling of pulling some fresh-baked bread or pastries out of the oven.

How Much Of A Coffee Snob You Are, Based On Where You Live

Your state may determine how picky you are about your coffee.

131347

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

When "Mean Girls" said "In girl world, Halloween is the one time of the year where you can dress up like a total slut and no one can do or say anything about it," they were damn right. Halloween is the perfect excuse to buy that raunchy costume and show your partner that you're that B. Coming from a very single (yes, very single) 20 something-year-old, I have already got my Halloween costume on lock, and now you will too.

Not only are these 10 Halloween costumes dangerously sexy, but you can wear them in the bedroom whenever you want to give your boo a surprise, yes, year-round. Whoever said you can only dress up on Halloween is seriously disturbed.

Ariana Grande released her first single called "positions" since "boyfriend" with Social House and it is a BANGER. This song is absolutely incredible and I am SURE you will agree with me once you listen.

I'm a sucker for a single with a video and that's exactly what we got. Ariana's been pretty quiet during the pandemic, and we all assumed she was working on some new music, and we were right.

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.
