One thing

What one small to medium thing could you regularly do that would make her life easier, better, or nicer?  If you don’t know right off, you could always ask her – but only if you are serious about following through!

Notes on the move to the blog:

  • I am traveling through next Tuesday, so I have limited ability to work through things.  The tips will continue to go to the old system for several weeks, so there is no huge hurry.
  • Both Yahoo and G-mail are treating the e-mails with passwords as spam.  NO doubt other systems are doing the same – I know AOL is famous for this.  To whitelist enter the following two e-mails, replacing the “$” with @ – nobody$cpanel.netpublicist.com and paulb$themarriagebed.com.
  • The best current instructions for moving are here.
  • A few of you are seeing the old web site because of a local or ISP cache issue.  If you see the old site, dark blue with cartoon man and woman, hold down the shift key while clicking the reload button on your browser – this should fix the issue.
  • If your work or school firewall is blocking the site, you may be able to get the RSS feed.  I will also get information on e-mail from the RSS feed and send that out.
  • YES – I KNOW – the font on the main banner is too feminine. I had to throw something up there, I will get a proper banner up when I am home next week.

Hidden gifts

Make a habit of hiding small wrapped gifts where they will be found by your bride (and only your bride if you have others in the house).  This could be a simple as a piece of her favourite candy or something she often needs and has trouble finding (nail board, pens) or something that gets used up (small candles).

Every so often, toss in something different – a nice gift, a gift card, an invitation to dinner, an offer to do a massage, or so on.

A few bugs in the code …

Hi all,

All in all a fairly easy release.  I apologise to those of you who tried to read, register of comment between 1pm and3 pm Pacific time today while I was making changes to the live site.

A couple of changes made today:

  • Removed the default  italics from the right column – too difficult to read
  • Added the ability to create a local avatar – go to your profile to upload one.  This will suppress your global avatar (if you have one) on this site only, or allow you to easily set up an avatar if you don’t have a global WordPress account.
  • Fixed the login and log out features in the side bar – both were buggy on some browsers.

klingon1Enough of this programing – I will get a real tip posted for Wednesday.

I will leave you with my favorite programing quote – those of you who do battle with code will appreciate this:

Klingons do not “release” software. Klingon software escapes, leaving a bloody trail of design engineers and quality assurance people in its path.

New TGH system lives!

At long last, the new system is ready.  Due to ISP spam issues  I will not be mass moving the list – if you want to keep reading the tips you will have to do one of the things explained below.  Tips will be sent from the new system to the old for at least a month, so you don’t have to act immediately, and if you move to the new system you will get tips from the old system if you don’t unsubscribe.

 

There are now four ways to read the Generous Husband Tips – Full text E-mail, Reminder e-mail with a link, RSS feed, or read them on-line.

The new system allows readers to comment on posts, and/or rate posts.  To post comments or rate you must register.

E-MAIL:

Still here, just buried in code

Hi gentlemen,

I’ve spent most of the last two days trying to get the new Generous Husband system up and running.  If all goes well, you will tomorrow receive a Monday e-mail that will be a test message.  If that works, the Tuesday e-mail will give you information on migrating.

Don’t worry about having to make a change in a hurry, the new system will send mails to the old system for a month or more.

Bride’s choice

If sex is likely to be on the agenda for Valentine’s Day, tell her it’s her choice – what, when, where, how, and so on.  Make it her day to have sex the way she most wants it.

Finish with a snuggle

Whatever you do for Valentine’s Day, finish the day with a good long snuggle before you go to sleep.

More Valentine’s Service

A couple of y’all sent some great ideas for serving others on Valentine’s:

We go out on a day near Valentine’s as a couple, then take your kids out on Valentine’s day, should you have any. I take our girls out, and my wife takes our son out. We’ve been doing it for years, and the kids really look forward to it every year, even though the boy is 14 now.

I dress as cupid & my wife dresses as queen of hearts & we go to people who have had a difficult time ie: death of a spouse, loss of job, loss of friend or someone that has never been married. We show up give them a goodie bag & the head to the next one on our list. We get a blessing making them smile.
