I don’t understand why Cupid was chosen to represent Valentine’s Day. When I think about romance, the last thing on my mind is a short, chubby toddler coming at me with a weapon.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you who live in the countries that celebrate Valentine’s Day – United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Denmark, Italy and Japan! If it was spring time here, I’d shower you with tulips (though red roses are considered the flower of love because the color red stands for strong romantic feelings)! But it is still snowing, and I don’t grow red roses anyhow, so I’ll just send you this pair of Parrot Tulips from last year.
Also left over from last year is my Valentine’s Day Story 2011, which was read by only 18 people. I thought it had some ingenious suggestions for gift giving, but you know that my ideas are sometimes so outside the box that I don’t even know what is in the box.
Love is much nicer to be in than an automobile accident, a tight girdle, a higher tax bracket or a holding pattern over Philadelphia.
