So how was the most hyped up day of the year for you guys? I spent a relaxing day with family and of course the internet – though the latter decided to act pricey for most part of the day. That’s why we need friends and family.
I was just browsing through the history of Valentine’s day – but for a day on which $19.7 billion dollars are spent in the US alone – surprisingly not much is known is known or even interesting/impressive. Just in case, you are interested, this page sums it up pretty well. A few news items that caught the eye for Valentine’s day this year was a marriage proposal as a newspaper headline and how Godfrey, a 17 year old boy in Utah, bought flowers for each of the 834 girls in his school from his own hard earned money! Yet, the weather seems to have hogged the limelight in the US this year – especially the northeast where it seems to have broken all freezing records – wish all of you from there, warmer days ahead
Due to unavoidable circumstances, the next post/update will be on the 22nd of February. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Please do leave me a note – the good, the bad or the downright ugly (err maybe a bit sugar-coated ) will also do!
Here are a few quotes to keep you going…
