When I came home from a business trip last week, Athena had welcome
home messages all over the place for me — on the bathroom mirror, in
a Hershey’s kiss and even written in glow in the dark paint.  Boy did
I feel loved.

Have a heart pumping week — Michael

I received a lot of great entries for last week’s contest on using the
Internet to keep the sparks going in a relationships.

Mark Barsocchini of Westminster Colorado won with his idea on *Virtual
Us Time* you can read all the Internet ideas at:
http://theromantic.com/stories/stories.htm I also added several
stories from a previous contest on doing special things for your
sweetheart when he or she is sick.

This week’s contest is on the POST OFFICE.  How can you use the postal
system to be a creative romantic?  Have you mailed anything clever?

The prize is a new container of glass chalk — great for writing love
notes on car windows and other places.

HOW TO GIVE A HUNDRED FLOWERS
by Michael Webb

At least 99 percent of women like flowers.  They love getting a dozen
of this or a single stem of that.  But very few men ever give them an
entire garden.

We gardeners cant wait to get our hands in the black soil and ready it
for blossoming plants.  However, we are fully aware that one of the
dangers of springtime gardening is planting delicate young seedlings
only to have them killed by an unexpected cold snap.

This year I am planning on making some window boxes for our house and
beginning them inside, sitting them near windows to soak up the
brightening sun.

I could surprise Athena with her very own window box garden but she
likes digging in the earth too so this is a project we will both
enjoy.  Together, we’ll get to pick out the plants we choose for our
window boxes.  We’ll plant the seeds or tuck the young seedlings into
the dirt.  We’ll water our precious “children” and watch them grow and
brighten the inside of our home until it is safe to be moved outdoors.

Projects like this are what keeps you close. As Martha would say “it’s
a good thing.”
