And other Valentine's Day press releases, e-mails, links and contributions we've received at Beachwood HQ.

1. THIS VALENTINE'S DAY, GIVE THE MOST THOUGHTFUL GIFT: BREAK-UP!

Valentine's Day is upon us once again. Hearts, flowers, and the best gift of all: Breaking up.

Say, what???

That's right: Break up with you lover. Temporarily break their heart - but set them free to be with their true soul mate and stop wasting their time and their life.

So says author and speaker, Dr. David Gudgel, who says to those who have been dating for a long time, "If you want to give each other the ultimate gift of love this Valentine's Day, either propose or break up."

Dr. Gudgel, author of the book, Before You Get Engaged (Thomas Nelson 2008), explains that too many people who are in long-term dating relationships are kept "waiting on the shelf" because one or both wants the companionship but isn't ready for the commitment of marriage . . . and may never be.

It may sound cold or unkind, but Dr. Dave's practical advice often ends up with warm and wonderful happy endings - for someone else.

How does a couple know if they are heading toward, or are ready to, get married? Ask Dr. Dave.

ABOUT THE EXPERTS
* DAVID GUDGEL is the senior pastor at Bethany Bible Church and host of a thirty minute weekday radio program in Phoenix, AZ. A graduate of Westmont College, Talbot Theological Seminary, and Western Seminary, Dr. Gudgel has been in vocational ministry for thirty-five years. David is the author of numerous books and articles including Before You Get Engaged and Before You Live together. He and his wife Bernice have three twentysomething children: one married, one not, and one (Brent) thinking seriously about it and has coauthored a book about the pondering process.

BRENT GUDGEL is a filmmaker and photographer in Los Angeles. An owner of Chronicle Project, he directed the film Dear Francis, which aired on Showtime in 2007. David has worked on projects in over twenty countries. When not on a set, Brent travels to conferences, colleges, camps, and churches across America to speak about social justice. Three months after he and his girlfriend Danielle finished coauthoring their book, they got engaged, and four months after they got engaged, they got married in November, 2007 - and they're still married!

ABOUT THE BOOK
In Before You Get Engaged, authors David Gudgel, his son Brent, and Brent's girlfriend Danielle, interact in a discussion that not only reveals twelve relational indicators indispensable to a healthy, lasting marriage, but fleshes them out with dialogue and insight straight from Brent and Danielle's journals.

6.I DREAMED I SAW ST.VALENTINE
By J.J. Tindall

I was cornered near Lincoln Park
by the Unholy Three: Gov. Blah-Blah-Blah-vich,
Speaker Mad Again and President Stroker.

They threatened to crank my Juice payment or
take away my buses and hospitals. "Gee whiz,
fellas!" I sputtered as they clenched their fat

fists around my whiny throat. Then suddenly came a
chorus
of angels, and a bright light broke through the ashen
clouds.
Like a great bald eagle, with the visage of Tony
Peraica,

St. Valentine in sandals descended. "Hark, ye Sharks!
The Age of Graft has now ended! Unhand this slave and
all who
tremble like him or ye shall wither like a First Ward
Republican!"

"Curses!" screamed the Three, in unison and with
feeling.
Then I awoke, clutching my throat, still in my orderly
scrubs,
late for work again and scrambling for my bus pass.
