And that brings us to our last word in business on this Leap Day: a rare proposal. Traditionally in many European countries Leap Day was considered the only day when a woman could propose to a man. And one restaurant in Swindon, England seems to be capitalizing on that.


Yes, at the Beefeater Grill ladies can get down on one knee and order the Leap Day special, a seven ounce steak branded with the words Will You Marry Me. The special costs about $17. And David, I wouldn't say it's expensive, if you consider that there's no better way to a man's heart than food, right?

GREENE: Certainly works on me.
