advertisement or arrange for a local movie theater to play a video tape of you

cookie until it is soft enough to open. Place the diamond ring inside with

walk on the beach. Have a friend prepare a special area set up with
flowers, champagne, music and an engagement proposal written in the sand.

ring as you cross the finish line.
