It is something you give as a gift! Roses die after a week or so, does this mean that the gesture is not appreciated? I bought a "Star Name" for my Father about 20 years ago, he still has the framed certificate. He views it I'm sure as a gesture of love from his only Daughter. I can't think of anything else I could have given him for $35.00 that could have said as much.

Celena, you are absoltely right, and do I ever have an offer for you.

Want to memorialize someone you love? Name a bridge after them. Bridges are visually striking, architecturally dynamic, and built to last. And they come in all shapes and sizes. Suspension bridges, truss bridges, and even covered bridges are available. And the venues are wide open - just choose your location. A lookout over the Pacific? Crossing the Straits of Mackinac? An idyllic footbridge over a forest creek? Yes, even certain bridges in New York City can be yours to name!

Just imagine going to your Aunt Edna's 80th birthday part with this special gift. "Aunt Edna, I may not be able to take you to Paris, but here's this bridge over the Seine, with a terrific view of the Louvre. It used to be called the Pont Neuf, but is now the "Pont Edna." Then whip out the hankie and wait for the tears to flow!

For only $59.95, you will get a framed photograph of your bridge, a certificate stating that this is indeed an authentic bridge, and the satisfaction that you have given someone a novelty gift for the ages. And the new name of your bridge will be kept on file in my office, in a genuine locked filing cabinet.

Don't delay - send me your order today! If 100,000 people bought star names, just imagine the pent-up demand there is for beautiful objects so much closer to where we live.
