Zeal for New Zealand!

I would love to take my wife out for an extended, never-to-be-forgotten date. Just her and me. On a date. Where we can do whatever we want to do without having to worry about administering the demanding ketogenic diet that prevents our oldest daughter from having seizures. Where we can sleep in without being woken up by our youngest daughter's early rising.

Oh, how heavenly that would be!

And it CAN be! An opportunity has presented itself.

Air New Zealand is hosting a vote-driven "Coldest Canadian" contest. It's for a flight to New Zealand, accommodations, and some great activities while we're there.

Now, I'm not sure that I'm the coldest Canadian, and I certainly wouldn't win a contest for the coolest - or the hottest, for that matter - but I just happened to have some footage of me going for a snorkel in the wintertime and I thought, What the heck! I want to take my wife out for one heck of a memorable date!

Now, because it's a vote driven contest, I can't do this alone. I'm going to need your help to make it happen. I know it takes a lot of work to register with your e-mail address (and opt out of receiving newsletters if you so choose) so you can vote for my video. And I know it takes a lot of work to vote on the video every day. And I know it takes a lot of work to pass the link of the video on to all of your friends. But if I can take my wife out on a date to New Zealand, we'll have you to thank!

Here's how it works:

  1. Go watch the video here.
  2. Register.
  3. Vote.  EVERY DAY!
  4. Like it on facebook and whatever other social media tool you use.
  5. Tell all your friends to vote EVERY DAY!
There are 16 days left.  The odds are good.  WE CAN DO THIS!

Thank you for your support.
