Early Christmas Gift Idea!
Do we have a suggestion for you! Have you ever slept on memory foam? The stuff is incredible. It will change your life. Once you have slept on this space-age marvel (NASA invented it) you will never go back. So, here's the idea: If you live with your partner, or sleep over often, get him a memory foam mattress topper for his bed--- a unique and super Christmas present. And who else gets to benefit from it?
If you sleep alone, well, get him one for his bed, anyway. After hearing him rave about it, you will soon be ordering your own. We have a king-sized topper, 3" thick was plenty. And it really helps with your bad back, too.
This company sells a quality product, at a decent price (memory foam is not cheap), with free shipping: My Dream Mattress
Need a date for the holidays? Here's some great ideas!
It's beginning to look a lot like... Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, and (last but not least) New Year's Eve. Yes, it's almost that time of year when people seem to be celebrating with their significant others... and if you're single... (The Rest of the Story...)

Movie Review: Babel
Man, what a drought at the boxoffice lately
loads of Christmas movies-yuck!
An American couple vacationing in Morocco are plunged into a desperate struggle for survival after an accidental shooting. This tragedy ignites a chain of events which link together 4 groups of widely separated players. It is a film about misunderstanding, and how it can plunge us into confusion and tragedy, and argues for truth and sympathy. And the power of love.
Babel is technically brilliant, has a stellar cast (including Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett), and sweeps you along in a most interesting tale. As one review stated, Babel is a "beautiful, thrilling maze that pulls us into and out of traps and seeming blind alleys." Enjoy!

Pearl Harbor Day Remembrance
December 7, 1941... "A day that will live in infamy"...
Today marks the anniversary of a traumatic and scary day in U.S. history. Our parents who lived through the radio reports and declaration of war on Japan will never forget it. They thought the enemy would be invading our shores soon! Imagine that...
Those of us in newer generations sit in our comfortable living rooms, watching news from Iraq unfold on our wide screen TVs. It's all distant, non-threatening. Disturbing but not scary... for us anyway. Complacency.
Find an elder relative or friend today who was alive and remembers the Pearl Harbor Attack. Ask him to tell you the story, how it all felt. It'll make you appreciate the relative security and freedoms we still enjoy in the states today (despite the horror of 911). Partly because of the ultimate sacrifices many men and women made during the Great War. Let us never forget.
And rent or buy Pearl Harbor, the movie.

Poetry Contest Winner: SURRENDER
Anytime I think of you
You stared at me with
Your breath all over my body...
I have never touched, smelled, nor felt anybody
It is hard not to remember.
It tells me something,
I will hold back.

THE POLITICALLY CORRECT SANTA CLAUS!
His workers no longer would answer to "Elves",
And labor conditions at the north pole
Four reindeer had vanished, without much propriety,
And equal employment had made it quite clear
So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid,
The runners had been removed from his sleigh;
And people had started to call for the cops
Second-hand smoke from his pipe had his workers quite frightened.
And to show you the strangeness of life's ebbs and flows:
So, half of the reindeer were gone; and his wife,
And as for the gifts, why, he'd ne'er had a notion
Nothing of leather, nothing of fur,
Nothing that might be construed to pollute.
And fairy tales, while not yet forbidden,
For they raised the hackles of those psychological
No baseball, no football...someone could get hurt;
Dolls were said to be sexist, and should be passe;
So Santa just stood there, disheveled, perplexed;
He tried to be merry, tried to be gay,
His sack was quite empty, limp to the ground;
Something special was needed, a gift that he might
A gift that would satisfy, with no indecision,
So here is that gift, it's price beyond worth...
"May you and your loved ones enjoy peace on earth."

SOME ADVENTUROUS DATES FOR 2007
Build a tree house (then make it your own secret romantic hideaway!)
Attend an auction together. Look in the paper for upcoming events.
Go to a travel agency and explain that you are comparison shopping a trip you are planning to take. Ask for an itinerary of sights to see. Get estimates for airfare, lodging, food, and transportation. Why not go?
Get up early one morning and head for the mountains, a lake, the shore, or even the sand dunes. Take along all the ingredients for a delicious breakfast to be cooked over a campfire and pack a picnic lunch. Check our Picnic Page for ideas.
Gather 26 objects starting with letters A-Z on a road rally. No more than 2 items per location. Throw in a mandatory stop at a tasty restaurant for lunch.
Clean out an attic, basement or garage that no one has touched for a long time. Grandparents' houses are perfect places for this. Delight in the treasures you find.
Go and shoot your own turkey. When you come back, clean it and dress it for dinner.
Catch your own worms and use them early one morning to catch fish at your favorite lake or stream.
When the rain is coming down in bucketfuls, put on some old clothes and shoes and go hunting for puddles in gutters, parking lots, grassy areas in parks, etc. Have splash wars or jump from puddle to puddle. You could even stand on a sidewalk next to a big puddle that cars have to drive through. Pretend that the sudden wall of water was a surprise! If you are in the park, make sure you use the wet slide, which probably will have a big puddle at the bottom. Make a muddy mess of yourselves, then go home and take a hot shower together!
Take an airplane or helicopter ride around the city. Take a camera to take pictures of you and make the memories twice as great! Check the yellow pages under airplanes rental or rides.
Go on a hot-air balloon ride. Hot-air balloon facilities and operators can be found all over the country. Depending on the time of day you go, be sure to take a picnic, light breakfast or dinner (you may want to have enough for the operator too). Don't forget to take some pictures of the breathtaking views.

The post-holiday letdown may well extend into your love relationship, if you let it, Aquarius. Do some serious soul-searching around the 12th. Figure out what your true needs and desires are, and communicate this to your lover. But be prepared to hear his wants and needs, too. Give him a chance to ventilate, and try to see things from his eyes for a change. This give-and-take can work wonders for you guys, and a stronger bond can be forged in this way. If you are unattached, you may well find a new love interest around the 28th, or a new idea for adding romance and intimacy to your existing relationship.
