~~~ From the Editor ~~~

Today is Athena and my 19th wedding anniversary. I would have
never imagined that marriage would be this fun or that my wife
would actually get more beautiful every year.

DO MEN ADORE YOU?

Do men treat you like a queen? Do they fall over themselves to
please you? Would they gladly take care of all of your needs if
you allowed him?

I’ll tell you a secret. Men will only do that if you are “adorable”.
I don’t mean cute and perky like a kitten.

Here are the things you need to do in order to be “adorable” in
any man’s eyes. Be this sort of woman and you can have any man you
desire – and if you already have a man, he will desire only you.

~~~ Contest ~~~

From all the correct entries to last week’s contest I randomly
chose Mark Hammond of Covington, Louisiana.

The answer was – Snowballs. New Orleans’s Snowballs are NOTHING
like snow-cones. They are made with extremely fine shaved ice and
come in 100s of flavors. They are in the road-side stands all over
the city. And they are divine!

One of the coolest stands is in Abita Springs, called Bot & Nola’s

*** This week’s contest:

Where were Athena and I married 19 years ago?

To enter the contest email me at tipofweek@aol.com and put “wedding”
in the subject line. In the text of the email give me your answer
along with your name and city where you live.

From all the entries received one will be chosen at random to win
a trip the Prize Vault.

TheRomantic.com’s ever growing PRIZE VAULT is filled with over 100
books, board games, CDs, stuffed animals, and other fun stuff at:

~~~ Tip of the Week ~~~

Better Than Check Mate
by Michael Webb

http://theromantic.com/

Athena and I like to play all sorts of games – cards, backgammon,
chinese checkers and even chess. Staying home and playing games
is a relaxing and inexpensive date night for us.

Chess particularly can be a “serious” sort of game. There is a lot
of strategy and thought that goes with it. Sometimes chess should
be more fun.

To combat the all too serious attitude about chess I came up with a
great way to bring a bit of levity to the game. I created little
tags to put on the bottoms of the chess pieces. The tags were
basically “rewards” for capturing that piece.

So when Athena captured my Rook, she turned it over and found that
she was awarded a five-minute back rub. When I took her Queen,
I got one night off of making dinner (yes, I do most of the cooking).

The tags are randomly placed under the pieces so capturing a Pawn
might gain you a better prize than say, a Bishop. I even created
a couple of tags for each side that allowed the conqueror to take
back one of his pieces.

Bobby Fischer probably wouldn’t like my game of chess, but Athena
and I sure do.

And here are some more great romantic tips…
