Over the last couple of weeks I’ve given interviews to the Wall Street
Journal, Redbook, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health and several other
publications.  So you just might see me or mention of me in the months
ahead in something you are reading.

If you happened to have problems with any links in my issue last week,
it could be because my site unexpectently went down for nearly 30
hours later in the week.

Have a perfect week! — Michael

Last weeks contest was on SEARCH AND FIND.  I put all the correct
entries into a basket and picked out Tamara Woerner as the winner.

This week’s contest is something all together new.  It’s someone
else’s contest but thought it would be right up your alley.  The prize
is a week-long stay on the private island of Cayo Espanto, off the
coast of Belize (a really great country in Central America).  To
enter, submit an essay describing what makes your mate the “perfect
mate” for a chance to escape together.  This contest is sponsored by
Coffee-Mate and you must register (for free) by Nov 15 at their
website www.coffee-mate.com

If one of my subscribers makes it as a finalist, please let me know so
I can share the great news with your fellow subscribers.  Again, do
NOT send your entry to me.

S P O N S O R

Over the years Athena and I have participated in quite a few market
research panels.  They are usually done in groups of 6 to 10 people
and you discuss a certain product or commercial.  One time I got to
sample various beverages and tell them which ones I liked and why.
The discussion usually lasts only an hour and I’m typically paid $40
to $80 (in cash) for participating.  A couple of times, they had more
than enough people show up so they paid me and sent me home.  If this
is something you would like to do now and again (I get calls about 10
times a year), then sign up at this site:

Home Romantic Home
by Michael Webb

If asked to describe what would be a typical romantic occasion, the
majority of people would probably give details of a full moon,
deserted beach, mountain chalet or other beautiful place where two
people could spend some time alone.  It just shows how important the
atmosphere or ‘setting’ is to romance.

Likewise, many people have the opinion that they have to go away to
those sort of places in order to have a romantic evening or weekend.
That’s simply not practical most of the time.  Since we spend more
time at home than anywhere else, it would reason that we might want to
make more of an effort in making our own homes more “romance
friendly.”

Does your home have a fireplace?  How often do you use it?  Most
fireplaces aren’t extremely efficient but they sure do look great.
People use fireplaces in their homes now for atmosphere – and not just
in the winter.  You never know when you’ll need a romantic get-away so
always have some firewood around and pine cones on hand to throw in so
the fire has a lot of romantic “crackle.”

Is there a good supply of candles handy?  Turn off the lights, light
the candles and presto!  you have a romantic setting.  Aladdin’s Genie
couldn’t have transformed the room any quicker.  Also, you might want
to consider putting a dimmer on the lights in the dining room.  For
less than $10 you can transform blinding lights into a soft romantic
glow.

Nothing creates a mood quite like music can.  You can be in a taxi in
the middle of New York City and shut your eyes, put on some soothing
music and instantly it can take your blood pressure down a few
notches.  So what is “romantic” music?  How about a CD or tape of
thunder and rain?  There are other nature sounds on tape like waves
crashing, birds singing, jungle noises and crickets chirping.  They’re
a nice alternative to the traditional classical music we’re accustomed
to.  Put one of those on and instantly the mood in the room will
change.

Invest a little money into making your own home a romantic getaway.
It sure beats the expense of going away every weekend just to put a
little romance back into your life.
