Some of these facts are just amazing. Some are kind of what you might have expected. But in either case, here they are....

Well Craig, I'll have to get going. I already bought my wife 2 cards, one serious, one funny, but they were 2 for $ .50 at the dollar store. When I posted the blog for breast cancer, I did buy 2 boxes of chocolates to help the cause, but that was only $20.00 I may buy a bouquet of flowers but that will only be about $20. as she prefers the colors to roses, which don't last that long. And no romantic dinner as she gets more appreciation when I actually cook, so I'll probably come up about $60.00 dollars short. I hope someone picks up my slack.

Shirley - $48.00 for a dozen roses? He got off cheap!

Krystal - Gerber daisies last a whole lot longer than roses do anyway. You're better off.

Laura - It's all part of the full service I provide!

Toula - It's definitely a money maker.

Lou - Maybe that's why my VD never turns out the way it's supposed to.

Amazing how statistics can be compiled for anything nowadays.  I would like to know the number of men who end up in the dog house for not giving their sweeties a gift on Valentines Day.

$120?  I'd better head back to the mall, huh?!  Those are some pretty 'startling' statistics!  Thanks for sharing.

Have a great week...oh, and happy Valentine's Day!
