I've always wanted to meet Liza Minnelli, and now the state of Virginia is offering me the chance to do so. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its tourism campaign "Virginia is for Lovers," the state is giving away 40 free trips in 40 weeks
. Enter now because the first trip -- the two-night "Into the Wild Blue Yonder" vacation with a biplane ride, private hangar tours and flight simulations -- will be given away on February 20.
The trip I want, to be Liza Minnelli's VIP at the Virginia Arts Festival, will be drawn on March 6, but don't you dare enter that one. The other sweepstakes drawings, ranging from tours of Presidential homes and Civil War battlefields to Blue Ridge Mountains birdwatching and canoeing, will take place every week until November 23. You must be over 21 to enter.
