I recently met Hugh who does something amazing. He loves homeless
people full-time. I dont mean as an emotion. I mean it as an
action. He helps restore their dignity by spending time with them,
serving them, helping them to find jobs or healthcare. No agency
pays him to do this.
I urge you to read what he is doing and consider how you can help
those whose suffering is beyond our comprehension. Perhaps you
can give him five dollars a month so he can hand out more clean
socks. Maybe you can do something in your own community. Let me
know how it touches you.
P.S. Be sure to read his “April letter”. Engrossing.
My foundation is helping Hugh with monthly support.

This week I received a letter from a lady who has been married for 3
years and she already feels like the romance and spark are gone from
her relationship even though they were initially quite passionate.
Everything gets boring after a while!
If you feel like things are a little ho-hum, stale,
same-ole-same-ole, then a very SIMPLE way to spice things up is
to put more games into your relationship. I dont mean checkers
Here are some games you will want to play behind closed doors
(or at least with the blinds closed).
~~~ Tip of the Week ~~~
ELECTRONIC SCAVENGER HUNT
by Michael Webb
Scavenger hunts are one of the more popular romantic ideas. You
send your sweetheart around the house or town, searching for clues
and perhaps picking up gifts along the way.
A modern version of the scavenger hunt incorporates the
computer. Here are some different ways you can set up a scavenger
hunt for your sweetheart.
Create some webpages. You might want to use a free service like
Yahoo or Google. Give your mate the url of the first page. On
that page will be a clue. Perhaps it could be something like
“What is the name of the restaurant where I proposed to you? Use
that name to create the url of the next page you will go to:
you can also create multiple choice questions and by clicking on the
right answer, it leads you on to the next page. You can continue this
hunt for several pages if you want and have the last page be a coupon
for a present or simply a page that is a dedication of your love,
including photographs, love poems and other things your have written.
Here’s another idea. Send your sweetheart on a hunt using existing
sites. Have them collect the answers to your questions (similar
to this week’s contest above). Use questions that are meaningful
to your relationship, such as “One of my favorite musicals is Les
Miserables. Which city did it debut?” or “My favorite cuisine is
Thai. Name two Thai restaurants we have never been to within 40
miles of our house.” The clues will give them “clues” for future
romantic dates and gifts.
And yet one more. This idea uses your computer only, not the
Internet. Create files throughout your system, in different
directories for your partner to find. Use fun file names such
as yourthebest and loveyou. Have them search for all the files,
including clues to get to the next one. The final page they open will
tell them what their reward is for successfully completing the hunt.
