I saw an ad at the supermarket asking anyone who was looking for a way to propose marriage
to call a number to get help doing it. I did.
I called and spoke to Jonah and Richard, and made an appointment to see them. When I got there,
I watched a pilot episode of 'Say Yes...' in which a man proposed by having some apes at the zoo put on T-Shirts that said
'Jennifer, will you marry me?'
At this point, with tears in my eyes from emotions that welled up while watching the show, I
figured 'Gee, I'll never top that one'. I suggested that I could write a song, have my band (H to Oh!) play a gig
and tell everyone that the crew was filming a documentary about we five musicians. They said they already had a music

While I waited, I looked at 'The Life Network' to see what was posted
Want to "pop the question" on TV?
Marry Me, a new television show currently in production for Life Network, is looking
for real-life marriage proposals for its pilot episode. Whether it's proposing while dangling upside down from a bungee chord,
flying over Niagara Falls in a helicopter or dressing up as a knight in shining armour with a white charger to boot every

I got the call back from Jonah who asked me to check in with him the next week. I called back
then, and got the shock of my life. 'Yes, we'd love to do this' and 'can we shoot it next week?' Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
I asked if the following week would be ok, and Jonah said that would be fine.
In the space of 24 hours I managed to secure a venue, confirm with the band that everyone was available
(even Tina who lives waaaaaaaaaay out of Toronto), write the song, set up a web page with all the info and get the band to
do a run-through rehearsal of the song (which I recorded and edited so we had a guide). I called back Jonah, and we
were on our way........
