Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!


There’s still time (depending on when you’re reading this) to get your significant other a special Valentine’s gift!!!


This is a busy celebratory week…Super Bowl Weekend followed by Valentine’s Day! 



Outside of Valentine’s Day cards and chocolates…flowers and jewelry, I’ve never known that much about the history of Valentine’s Day. There seem to be some different theories as to its true origins though.

Larry and I have celebrated 44 Valentine’s Days together so

jewelry, flowers, dinner, chocolates aren’t something I expect anymore. Wellllllll…maybe chocolate!!!


We may head out for some pasta from one of our favorite restaurants. My annual football withdrawal has begun but not as bad as in years past. Maybe it’s a sign of maturing. 


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Congratulations to the L.A.Rams, Superbowl Champs!


Love may not make the world go round, but I must admit that it makes the ride worthwhile. Sean Connery

Hi Kathy Streib - I wish you a very Happy 44th Valentine's Day with Larry! It is 51 for Rick and me. I am showing property to clients that came in from out of state so I will be working.  We might grab a bite to eat later.  We steal time when we can together. Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day;  It was a tense game and the result was more a matter of who wasn't injured.

Wayne Martin I agree...we don't exchange gifts but yes, as Larry says, every day is Valentine's Day for us. 

Brian England I think that gift giving is a learned art and you're right. It's about who you're with. 

Nina Hollander, Broker  you're right...it's about chocolate!!!  Happy Valentine's Day to you and your husband.

Joan Cox you know, it doesn't seem that way if you're with the right one!!! 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel if presented with a large dessert menu...I always go for chocolate. 

Michael Jacobs a gift of chocolate is always appropriate in my book.
