<3~    From the Editor      ~<3

I leave on Thursday to go volunteer at a youth camp in Florida for a
week.  I volunteer at a few different camps throughout the year.  Lots
of these kids dont have dads in their lives so it is easy to make a
difference.

If you would like some romantic tips for celebrating the new year, I
have lots on my site here:

Dont forget to add my email address above to your mailing list to make
sure the newsletter doesnt get filtered out.

Have a celebratory week.  — Michael

Colored Flames of Love
by Michael Webb
http://www.TheRomantic.com

Surprise your sweetie with a dazzling colored fire!

A lot of these ingredients can be found in the laundry section of the
grocery store, or a dry goods/farmer’s store (such as a store which
sells horse and cattle feed).

Borax = yellow-green
Copper sulfate = green-blue
Calcium chloride (pure only, a bleaching powder) = blue
Magnesium sulfate (epsom salt) = white
3 parts Potassium Sulfate/1 part Potassium Nitrate = violet
Potassium Chloride = purple

Chose one color above per pine cone, don’t mix them.  Dissolve as much
of the colorant into a gallon of water in a bucket as you can (this is
typically about 1/2 lb of colorant to 1 gallon of water), mixing well.
Toss in some clean, dry pine cones and let them soak overnight.  You
can use as many as you can fit in the bucket.

Remove the wet pine cones and lay them out on newspaper to dry.
Depending on the weather, it may take up to 72 hours.  Throw a couple
into a fire to test them before you use them for a romantic gesture.

Sit down with your sweetie in front of the fire.  Throw some pine
cones in and say something meaningful, like “when I’m with you, I see
colors in my heart.”

Enjoy the kiss that you’ll surely get!

*editors note: you can also dip the cones in melted paraffin wax and
sprinkle the powders while the wax is still wet instead of the above
soaking method.
