Ah yes, Valentines Day is fast approaching. I love this holiday because it's a chocolate fest.

In our house, Valentines Day is February 15th because that is the 1/2 price chocolate holiday. Who cares about the 14th. Everything is over priced.
With our work schedules we celebrate on a day thats conveniant. The 14th is actually conveniant this year, but swag comes on the 15th.

Everyone has their own way to celebrate. It's all good as long as both sides are happy...but beware guys,
if your wife or girlfriend says "Don't make a fuss or get many anything" That is girly girl speak for "Buster, if I don't get flowers, a mushy card and dinner, at the minimum, you sir are toast".

Anyhow, I thought a blog full of love songs would be fun. Or if your not feeling it, go ahead and post "Love Stinks" by Huey Lewis and the News.
Just be sure to use the "old embed code" from You Tube.

Here is my most recent favorite love song dedicated to you Bear, after 14 years I still look at you and feel like this :-)

Ah, I am so glad you told me about the chilli chocolate, I won't be tempted now. I shall stick to my favourite flavour..... which also gives you a warm feeling down the back of your throat .... oh, but much more pleasant! I also think it has medicinal properties, therefore can be enjoyed as such rather than chocolate!! lol

Morning, GG,

Just saw your note at Sandi's about your soggy shoes. We got 2" - amazing. Now, we need some more. And more. And... Greedy, much? I just keep thinking about what's going to happen when summer hits and those 90 degree temps and blazing sun start slurping up what water we've gotten. Well, and the news stories about the 5.5 million trees lost sort of focus the attention, too.

It's windy and cool here, but nice. The bluejays are going crazy, singing and calling. Could it be the pecans I've put out? I imagine there are bluejays twelve blocks away that are getting the word - "She's feeling generous this morning!"

Beautimus Morning Today!
Hope it's this nice tomorrow after the ground dries up a bit. My daffodils have sprung and flowered so it is indeed spring.

Hi Sandi, I have tried the Chilli Lindt. Chocolate with chiles has been a foodie rage lately. It tastes like regular chocolate until you swallow. Then you feel warmth down the back of your throat all the way to your belly. Some people seem to enjoy this. To me it feels like heartburn. Oh well, innovation can be good so I will continue to try the "new" stuff and see if there is a new winner.

Hi Gams, Thank you. Yes, for some reason we can also get you-tube videos out of blogs but not from the site at work. If it's Sunday, it's your day off. Hooray!

Hi Ylee, Done for the week. Now it's the 4day weekend that follows the 4 day work week. Plan on making the house pretty. That does take energy so more chocolate should be okay.

No chocolate here except for some Hershey's Special Dark I'm hoarding for bad times, lol!

Hope work is going well for you!

Perhaps you wouldn't be so tempted if there were only these two flavours!

Good Morning All,
It is Thurwedsday for those on the four day stretch of a compressed work week.

Seems the Universe has been sending a message loud and clear; "Step away from the chocolate box" All the usual half price candy stores only had cruddy chocolates in abundance. No Lindt, not even Russel Stovers. So, why bother. If it's not something I really like why eat it.

Especially considering I had to buy a larger pair of jeans. The putting weight back on thing has been very successful lol. Why can't all goals be that fun and easy?

Anyhow, have to run off to the batcave so a quick howdy and thanks for visiting to Sandi, Prose, Ylee, Sp, Karen and Briarcraft.

Ps. The Daisy song was one of my favorites as a kid. Used to sing it loudly, happily, and quite badly. Still do sometimes.

Hi ho!

When I was at the garden centre today I saw some Lindt chocolate and thought of you. But there were some flavours I had never heard of before.

I took photos on my phone but haven't downloaded them yet.... I will tomorrow morning so you can see.... but how about "chilli" flavour or even "Sea salt" !!!

Chilli chocolate???? The mind boggles!

Hope the bat cave is behaving for you :)

Maybe a little late for Valentines, but you said it didn't have to be on the 14th anyway. It never was a million seller, but it's my all-time favorite love song. Hope your Valentine date was a good one, with no girly-girl speak required. :-D

- Charles M. Schulz

Add: Wasn't going to even try to contribute to love songs, lol. But, late as I am, I just listened to this at Scalzi's blog and it is a love song and the video is shot in a place that I love.

Well, the snow came and went. Glad we went out in it last night to walk the corgi or would have never known. Today is overcast and has been a good day for organizing that pile of paper on the table.

Filled out rebate forms which required stronger eyeglasses to read the fine print, not just copies of receipts but genetic clones and climbing the tallest tree in the yard to collect some finch sweat. Okay, I'm making the last stuff up but it sure seems like it.

Hi Plapman, oh yes, the day after Easter is the other National Chocolate Holiday here. Mmmmmm chocolate bunny ears.

Hi Ylee, you are right. If you are ever on a re-do of "who wants to be a millionaire" don't make me your lifeline call for music trivia...unless I'm at the computer with google available.

Hi Barefoot, now that is funny. A veggie and his cheeseburger.

Hi Skye, why is it the good bands only have you-tube vids recorded from their concerts by fans. That would have been awesome live.

All right, we got a concert going.

Hi Sandi, chocolate and spirits is the feeling of love embodied. See, we really can buy love ;-)

Hi Prose, of course great minds think a like. There is plenty of room for this subject. It's a nice reminder of whats right with the world.

Hi Alley, are you sure you didn't used to be a d-jay?
We have an evening d-jay named Delila that spins these songs all night.

Hi Karen, isn't great when you get along so well that calendar dates aren't a point of contention. Congrats on 40 years!!!

And here is another favorite song of mine. This particular you-tube version is neat because the guy dedicated it to his Mom at the end.

I'm spending Valentine's Night playing with my Bunco group, but I'm with you - get all your chocolate half price!

Sandi -here in America, all the chocolate companies create Valentine's chocolates. Hershey kisses will be wrapped in red, pink and silver, M&M's will make bags of M&Ms in red, pink and white, and after the holiday they clear them out of the store to get ready for the next holiday -which I guess we can expect GREEN everything!

Hubby and I have celebrated over 40 Valentines together, so it honestly doesn't matter what day you celebrate. His answer when I asked him if it bothered him that I was playing Bunco on Valentine's night was - every day is Valentines Day. You see why he is such a keeper? Of course that said, he knows the night I play Bunco he gets to make a pizza and rent a movie that I don't want to see - he isn't a stupid man! LOL
