As a matter of coincidence, recently I found myself in a position of needing to describe my idea of the ultimate dream date. As I allowed my imagination free rein, I found that there was absolutely no chance of my dream date fitting into just one lowly evening. So, as a matter of coincidence, I present you with....My Ultimate Dream Vacation. Any remote mountainous region will do nicely, as long as my husband and I find that we are "stranded" in a cabin, either rustic or full of amenities, as long as it has a warm, cozy fireplace. Being "stranded" is where the rubber left the road of my imagined date, as I was picturing being snowed in, and subsequently, cut off from any contact with the outside world, for a reasonable amount of time, that is. As our cabin had been all ready stocked, before our arrival, with a week's worth of gourmet meals, we had been in no danger of starvation. Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries appeared, as if by magic, while we were lounging on a fluffy faux bearskin rug in front of the fire. Glorious mountain views and romantic paths to walk, not forgetting the abundant wildlife, were the distractions of the day. Just dreaming of the private outdoor hot tub, steaming away into the cold snowy night, had my imagination running rampant to even more steamier pursuits. My musings upon my dream date showed my husband arriving by horse drawn sleigh and delivering us by romantic snowy roads to our destination. Although I believe for a proper vacation, our mode of transportation would be, if not by plane, at least a meandering drive through the countryside from our home, in Michigan. (a notoriously flat state, absolutely without proper mountains) to our dream vacation. If for any reason you would like to take a peek at my pinterest board, which was the spark that set this all off, the URL is http://www.pinterest.com/shannonmwhelan3/my-ultimate-dream-date/ Have no fear, I am not a weirdo,nor a creeper, but just a fairly young retiree who enjoys daydreaming of spending quality time with my husband now that my 8 children are grown! And thank you for this enjoyable diversion!!

Is there a working link to the official rules? I may have won a first prize but want to verify who is managing the promotion and no one at customer service seems to know what's going on.

Ive been patiently waiting for the winner announcement, giving the moderators a chance to answer everyones questions but I'm already tired of playing this game. No dates, no moderator answers. Do you guys mind giving us something? I think we deserve it!
City Slicker
