I will be departing later this week for the summer camp
that my wife and I help run each year.  It takes a tremendous
amount of our personal time and effort but giving in this way
is extremely rewarding.

Have a special week.  — Michael

A while back I mentioned how I have made up to $75 an hour being
part of focus groups.  The most memorable one is where I was part of
a mock jury and we heard all the facts about a potential court case
and was paid $150 for two hours of work.

Some said the link to the website where you can find out about focus
groups in your city wasnt working so I am putting it here again —
http://theromantic.com/focusgroup.htm

Most of the focus group meetings can take place in the evenings so
those with full time jobs can even participate.  If you are a man or
a minority you can make even more.

In recent years a lot of focus groups began taking place online so
you can live in the middle of nowhere and still do them.

~~~ Tip of the Week ~~~

BIRTHDAY SURPRISE
by Drew McLellan
http://www.TheRomantic.com/

For 18 months, my wife and I (while we were still dating, not married)
lived 2000 miles apart.  Which makes it very difficult to go on a date
together — much less a date to celebrate a special occasion, like a
birthday.

About a week prior to my then girlfriend’s birthday, I began gathering
items.

* birthday candles
* birthday hat
* birthday streamer
* matches
* birthday balloon w/ribbon string
* thumb tack
* a deck of UN GAME cards (I mailed half to her and kept half)
* birthday gifts, wrapped
* Sleepless in Seattle VHS tape

On the day before her birthday, I also got:

* one cupcake
* one tupperware container to keep cupcake intact and
from other items

I packaged all of these items up, and overnight shipped them to my
girlfriend, with strict instructions not to open the box until we were
on the phone together that night.

I then placed two calls.

I ordered dinner from her favorite restaurant, to be delivered at
exactly 6:30 pm, with a bottle of chilled champagne.

I ordered a bouquet of flowers to be delivered at exactly 6:15 pm.

We got on the phone together around 6 pm. I asked her to open the box
and do the following:

* hang the birthday banner
* use the thumbtack and put up the balloon
* put on the hat (I did the same)
* give the horn a blow (I did the same)
* put the candle in the cupcake
* lay out the presents

By then, the flowers had arrived.  Fifteen minutes later, her dinner
arrived.  My dinner (the exact same dish, although no doubt not as
well prepared — Stouffers don’t you know!) was just coming out of the
oven.  So, we shared dinner and a couple glasses of champagne
together.  Then, we played the UN GAME (remember, we each had half the
deck) while dinner digested.  We opened her presents and then dimmed
the lights for the romantic Sleepless in Seattle, which we started at
the same time on our VCRs.

It didn’t make up for the fact that we were miles apart….but it did
make the distance feel a little shorter.  My wife still says it is the
most romantic thing any man has ever done for her.  I’m still working
on ways to top it.
