I believe you had stated positive energy. I am fortunate enough to have one of those few and far between that believes everyday is a "Valentines" day. Always showing and telling me his love for me. Yes, take a moment out and tell not only your significate other, but your family and friends that you love them, just as Nancy said.

Worth the read to get to the story at the end.

This is not my favorite holiday by a long shot. My husband and I are always too busy trying to weave our way through our three daughter's boyfriends and the day knowing that any minute could potentially offer extreme highs or lows depending...

Love and the expression of it cannot wait for February 14th and end on February 15th.
Thanks

Great column which made me laugh. I could feel how awful it feels for people to act better than you and how wonderful it is when someone rescues you. Even better that she recognized and relayed this kindness.

Happy valentines post to you.
Depending on the time of one's life, a favorite valentines song might be "You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille" by Kenny Rogers.
Or how about Ruby? Not sure why I am affixed on kenny

The perfect Valentine's Day: Dinner at the Hot Shot Cafe, a mix tape, and a few fresh beets for dessert.

Been asked what love song is the golden oldies to which I refer...several I can think of. Among the best is Righteous Bros singing "Unchained Melody." I'm melting, I'm melting. Not like the wicked witch in Wiz of Oz, but like...oh my...I think I might faint. Strange title, though. I'd name it "A Song to Make Her Swoon" or "Things to Say to a Girl to Make Her Happily Do Your Laundry and Cook Your Favorite Dishes."

I was thinking along the lines of Mickey D's and a roll in the hay afterwards.

Mickey D's had to get rid of the playgrounds due to threats of lawsuits. You won't see any new ones as they are phased out.

I always gave my wives a card and a Valentine teddy bear on Valentine's Day for what good it did me.
