Last week I had two typos (perhaps even more).  First, there was an
incorrect link in my sponsor’s ad for Timeless Message.  That correct
link is: http://theromantic.com/timeless.htm

Secondly, the contest was looking for wedding gifts for SPOUSES,
not SOUSES. 🙂

Next week in my Secrets of Blissful Relationships ezine I’ll be
writing about how to maintain the bliss in step-families.  If you
haven’t already joined that ezine send a blank

Have an error-free week — Michael

Kelly Legge of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada won last week’s contest on
gifts for your bride/groom to be.  Her creative idea is “Do Not Open”.
Most of the ideas are suitable for anniversary and birthday gifts too,
so you don’t have to be engaged to use them.  You can read Kelly’s
story and 9 others at:
http://theromantic.com/stories/weddinggifts/main.htm

This week’s contest is on ROMANTIC MOMENTS GONE WRONG.  Have you ever
been part of a romantic moment that did not come off as expected?  It
could have been a wedding, a date, a gift, a surprise or something
else that flopped or did not have the desired effect.

The winning idea will receive a new copy of Two to Tango, A Couple’s
Wish Box ($25 value), donated by TimeforTwo.com.

All entries must be received by Monday.

HAPPY, HAPPY HOUR
by Michael Webb
http://theromantic.com/

When I was in college, a few of my friends and I would head over to a
nearby restaurant on the occasional Friday night for Happy Hour.

While most people probably went for the drinks or the hopes of meeting
someone special, we went for the food.

The buffet table was loaded with hot wings, meatballs, vegetable
sticks, cheese and crackers, and many other hors d’oeuvres.  We
ordered an inexpensive soda and then headed over to the buffet to load
up our small plates.  We got away with “dinner” in a pleasant
atmosphere for under $2.  There would even be live music sometimes.

Now that I’m married, Athena and I have Happy Hour dates.

If you are looking for an inexpensive, yet fairly interesting date you
might consider going to a nearby Happy Hour.  Now, if you start
ordering alcoholic drinks at $4 a pop, the date suddenly becomes a
strain on the wallet.  Just because everyone else is drinking booze,
you don’t have to cave into social pressure.  A glass of coke or juice
will quench your thirst even better than a Rum & Coke or Vodka
Martini.

I’m not against alcohol.  I’m against people equating romance or
dating with spending a lot of money.  That’s why so many couples quit
going out after they have children.

Go to a Happy Hour and if desired, when you get home kick back and
relax on a homemade alcoholic beverage that cost 1/10th of what the
restaurant would charge you.
