Last week’s winner was Amy Holcombe of Traverse City, Michigan. Her
idea was *Honey, I Got You a Website.*

I have been unable to upload all the stories. About a dozen will be there
later this week at: http://theromantic.com/stories/birthday/main.htm

This week’s contest is on technology. What is a unique way you used
technology (cell phones, computer, video games, etc.) to be romantic?

The prize is a new copy of Cooking as Courtship. This $30 book is a
manual of sorts, exploring and explaining the ins and outs of love and
friendship in the presence of food.

Stories must be received by Monday, October 9 to qualify for the
prize.

The great tragedy of life is not that men perish, but that they cease
to love.

This week’s tip is a result of last week’s contest on creative
birthday surprises. There were many more great ideas. I’ll have them
on the website later this week.

THE WINTER TAN
by Lynne Ann Machowsky

A few years ago my boyfriend told me that he was so tired of having a
birthday in the winter. He said it would be so nice to go away to
some tropical paradise to celebrate instead of in the snowy-cold. He
said that I was so lucky to have my birthday when it was warm.

Being young at the time I hardly had money to take him on a trip to a
beautiful tropical place so I did what I thought was the next best
thing. I had a tropical island surprise party. I had all the guests
dress in island/hot weather apparel and sun glasses.

I put a fire on in the fireplace and laid beach towels on the floor.
I set up outdoor furniture in the house like lounge chairs etc. I put
a grill in the house-unlit of course and set chicken wings on it and
tongs next to it. I made a huge sun and hung it on the light fixture.
I also had posters from a travel agent on the walls with tropical
scenes.

Beach toys were scattered about as well. A cooler was filled with
beverages and so on. Imagine his surprise when he got home and walked
into an island paradise on his birthday in the midst of a snowy
winter’s day.
