Valentines Day


Recommended Posts

$367 million is expected to be spent on pets for Valentine's Day this year. :blink:


"God is so great and merciful that he does not require that we name him precisely. God is even willing to be anonymous for a time. Remember how God led the Three Wise Men from the East to Christ? The Wise Men did not know the God of Israel or Jesus. They worshipped the stars. So God used a star to lure them."--The Twelve Steps for Christians

Human relationships are way more complicated.

I'll bet that this number is a fraction of what humans will spend among themselves for V-Day.

Some folks don't have a fit human with which to share the day,

Of course the (dog/cat/parakeet/hamster) is clueless as to the occasion.

OTOH, that might say something about why someone might do V-Day, for selfserving reasons?

It's the flower growers, candy makers, and Hallmark who clean up on this day anyway.

Oh, yes. Restaurateurs do too. Try walkin seating tonite. Good luck.

"During the contest trial, the Coleman team presented evidence of a further 6500 absentees that it felt deserved to be included under the process that had produced the prior 933 [submitted by Franken, rk]. The three judges finally defined what constituted a 'legal' absentee ballot. Countable ballots, for instance, had to contain the signature of the voter, complete registration information, and proper witness credentials.

But the panel only applied the standards going forward, severely reducing the universe of additional basentees the Coleman team could hope to have included. In the end, the three judges allowed about 350 additional absentees to be counted. The panel also did nothing about the hundreds, possibly thousands, of absentees that have already been legally included, yet are now 'illegal' according to the panel's own ex-post definition."

No flowers, candy or Valentine's Day cards.

I did buy a generic greeting card with a photo of two polar bears. On the inside, I whited out the printed text, and wrote my own message:

I would not want to be a polar bear.


you were a polar bear.


then I would want

to be a polar bear.


I would be sad.

Monday the 11th was the 150th anniversary of the first Marian apparition at Lourdes. I got Suz an Our Lady of Lourdes medal as an early Valentine's Day present.
