Russell,  Just remind her that she will be bedecked in jewels and will be the
envy of every woman she ever knew. If that doesnt work go to the old standby.
"Honey" "Have I told you lately how much I love you? " If that fails to pry
open the larder offer to do the dishes.  Of course no one expects you to
actually do them but the offer is a nice touch.  Dennis on the North Coast

I have some great movies on Gemstone mining in America to offer.  Shipping is
free.  This one hour video takes you to see the actual mining of many famous
mines in the good ol USA.  The Sleeping beauty mine for Turquoise, Red Beryl
in Utah Tourmalines in Maine and California and several others.

I recently used this same method for displaying Agatized Coral, Florida's
State gemstone and it worked just great. I purchased The plastic stands that
are used to hold phographs. These come in a variety of sizes and would work
to display faceted gemstones.

TODAY'S FUNNY ~

The story of someone getting a haircut.

Women's version:

Woman2: Oh! You got a haircut! That's so cute!

Woman1: Do you think so? I wasn't sure when she 
gave me the mirror. I mean, you don't think it's too
fluffy looking?

Woman2: Oh God no! No, it's perfect. I'd love to
get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too
wide. I'm pretty much stuck with this stuff I think.

Woman1: Are you serious? I think your face is
adorable. And you could easily get one of those
layer cuts - that would look so cute I think. I was
actually going to do that except that I was afraid it
would accent my long neck.

Woman2: Oh - that's funny! I would love to have
your neck! Anything to take attention away from
this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.

Woman1: Are you kidding? I know girls that would
love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so
well on you. I mean, look at my arms - see how short
they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes
to fit me so much easier.

Men's version:

Man2: Haircut?

Man1: Yeah.

REFLECTIONS AND TIDBITS:

Don't go through life, GROW through life.
