For all the romantics out there,this is their day. I of course will have a card and some flowers for my lovely wife,but I've really come to dislike this day,as it is really a day for overpriced merchandise.
I have better ways to tell my wife I love her then to spend a lot of money on ,say roses which triple in price and half of them don't open,candy,like most of us need more sugrar in our diet,long waits at the restaruants,nope not a big fan of this day.
Its going to be a warm day for us up into the 40's,but short warmup as a strong cold front moves through this evening with high wind warnings and plunging temps.Tomorrow will be a cold day with low wind chills,but the end of the week we have a big warmup,then colder for the weekend.
Watched the grammys last night,enjoyed a lot of the performances,have to admit some of the people I wasn't familiar with.
Enjoyed Lady Gaga,but she is becoming more and more a clone of Madonna.Kept saying through the song born this way,how familiar it sounded,then it dawned on me it was very much like Madonna's Express Yourself.I still enjoy her,as kooky as she may be.
Lady Antebellum is a good group,it was good to see them win.Some interesting performances.

Did you see how Lady Gaga arrived on the Grammy's Red Carpet this year? Seems she, too, can't wait for Easter to arrive! LOL! Like you, I enjoy her music as well, but I could do without some of the extremely over-the-top costumes and theatrics! She makes Madonna look tame.

Hi,Jus,WP,and Mass,thank you,hope you all have a wonderful valentines day.
Mass,yes, there were many groups last night that I had to shrug at,being a music lover,I like to listen to a lot of the new music.I am actually a big fan of Lady Gaga,her music is high energy,and she certainly is different. And poor Bob Dylan,time to stop dragging him out,he just can't do it anymore.

Good Morning, NEW and ....

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU, YOUR LOVELY WIFE AND EVEN PRINCE!

You're not alone in your thoughts regarding Valentines Day. It's become overwrought with commercialism and trinkets in recent decades. My hubby and I prefer to exchange meaningful cards, prepare a nice meal at home and just spend a nice quiet evening together. It's far better than buying expensive gestures that either wither and die, promote cavaties or get stuffed in a closet somewhere.
We don't consider ourselves being over-the-hill but a bit wiser with age and experience.

I only watched snipits of last night's Grammy Awards. All the female singers who sang a tribute to Aretha Franklin did a most admirable job ... including Christina Aguilera. I bet she didn't miss rehearsals this time!! LOL! Live and learn. I do feel my age now in that there were quite a few groups or artists I didn't recognize. Poor Bob Dylan looked lost trying to make his way towards the mic. After he and his meandering group started singing, I almost wished they hadn't found it. LOL! Seems the technical crew didn't do a quick enough background check.

Thought I'd leave you with a Valentines Day song sung by one of the above tribute artists, Martina
McBride. I enjoy her music when she sings more pop-oriented tunes, like below, and dedicate this to you, your lovely Mrs and all WU's collective spouses, girlfriends and boyfriends.
