Thanks for all the wonderful feedback I’ve been getting on my newest
book, A Better Way To Date.  I’m offering a 50% discount on it for my
subscribers for just a few more days.  You can check it out at

Valentine’s is just around the corner, so if you celebrate it, now is
the time to make your plans.  Don’t wait until Feb 14 like many people
do.  And ladies it is not right to always expect men to plan the date
or give the gift.  I know a lot of men who would love some LoveCookies
(see below) or a pack of 50 love coupons —

Have a beautiful week! — Michael

I received a huge response to last weeks contest on FLOWER PETALS.  I
gathered all the ideas and put them into a list of 39 romantic ways
you can use flower petals.  It is this week’s tip.  I put everyone’s
name into a hat and drew out Pam Hayes-Bohanan for this week’s winner.
Additionally, there were some exceptional ideas (including a wonderful
recipe using rose petals) that couldn’t be simplified for the list so
I have put them on my site here:

This week’s contest is for a TRIP TO VIENNA, AUSTRIA

Starbucks is currently conducting a “Match Made Over Coffee Contest”.
In recognition of the new coffeehouse dating phenomenon, Starbucks is
conducting a nationwide search to find the most romantic
Starbucks-inspired love story – – from couples who met their spouse
while waiting in line, to new romances brewed over late night study
sessions.  Up for grabs – the winning pair receives an
all-expenses-paid trip to romantic Vienna, Austria.

The “Match Over Coffee Contest” is seeking story entries at
www.starbucks.com through Feb.  7, with the winner to be announced on
Valentine’s Day.

Petal Power
by Michael Webb
http://www.TheRomantic.com

When one thinks of using flowers to be romantic they typically imagine
a bouquet of roses or other flowers.  In my opinion, a more romantic
usage of flowers is with their petals.  Here’s a list of 39 things you
can do with them:

* Tossed on the bed
* Floating in the bath
* Making a trail
* On top of ceiling fans
* Decorating a dessert
* Rose petal massage
* Writing on rose petals
* Covering yourself with petals, and nothing else
* Put on the sun visor
* Strewn throughout the car
* Hidden in the glove box
* Used as packing material for a gift
* Take flowers you received – dry and make into potpourri
* Made into a candle
* Create a bar of soap using petals
* Used in a salad (some flowers are edible)
* Put in pockets, purses, briefcases as a clue of something special coming up
* Worn in your hair – gee, smells terrific
* Bring some to restaurant and put on table
* Hot glue to a picture frame
* Sprinkled in a packed lunch
* Sew or hot glue onto lingerie
* Write out a message with petals
* Inside an envelope with a card or letter
* Used to decorate a picture you drew
* Floating in a bowl of water – with or without floating candles
* Put in a shadowbox with other items
* Placed in a book your sweetheart is reading
* Sprinkled in the underwear drawer
* Tickle your mate with rose petals
* Frozen for future uses
* Put inside balloons – if you put inside clear balloons, slightly
wet the inside of the balloon and the petals will stick to the
sides for a dramatic effect — or keep dry if you want someone to
pop the balloon
* Surrounding your mate with petal while he or she is sleeping
* In luggage for someone traveling alone
* In a small crock pot with a little water for a beautiful smell
* Put in a glass of champagne
* Frozen in an ice block for champagne or centerpiece
* Make candied edible petals by rolling in wet sugar
* Dried and placed in a decorative jar or vase
* Make a homemade card by gluing on petals
* Tossed into a fire – enjoy the scent
