    Okay guys, don't forget that it is Valentine's Day! If you don't have someone special in your life, offer to treat someone to a coffee or hot chocolate, buy some cookies or chocolates you can share with coworkers. Do something to make someone feel special!

    Who knows, someone might take notice!

    Is the goal to find a romantic partner or to be a good samaritan?

    Always disliked Valentine's Day. Called it a fake holiday. Maybe because I never had a girlfriend or a Valentine from a girl growing up.

    Happy Valentine's Day to everybody! Even if it's just a fake holiday, and not everybody has a partner, let's face it ... it's February and kind of a miserable time of year (especially if you've been following the news) and anything involving candy and flowers can't be all bad. If I were single right now, I think I'd buy myself a box of candy and I have (even though married) already bought myself a miniature rose bush as my Valentine's Day present!

    My parents got married on Valentine's Day. Today is their 50th anniversary. I don't see it as just a day for romance. I see it as a day to show love and appreciation for family members and friends as well.

    And this "fake" holiday is originally meant to honor the memory of Saint Valentine in Italy. Back in that era soldiers were not allowed to marry, but a lot of men and their sweethearts wanted to be married before the men went to war, so Saint Valentine had them wed illegally. At least that's one of the stories of why Valentine's Day traditions got started, anyway.

    One could send lots of flowers I suppose...just don't bother sending any candy. Certainly not a memorable holiday for me either. o_O

    Tonight (errr... last night, it's now 12:30 AM of the 15th :p) I went to a youth centre for low income kids and served supper, then I went to torture myself at a local event where I took the above photo, just about the only good photo I took, there is another post about that...

    I was shocked as I did get flowers and an expensive dinner from the guy I live with.
    Then we looked at a store that sells crystals and rocks, (my special interest to collect)
    and they had a big tray of hearts carved out of different stones. He bought one for me.
    Fits in the palm of my hand. Nice fidget soother.
