Pensive V. DaY Thoughts to Ponder: Heh.

Valentine’s Day – Birds

In some countries, mid-February marks the beginning of mating season for many birds. Even the great Shakespeare wrote in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “Saint Valentine is past: Begin these wood-birds but to couple now?”

Among the most faithful of birds, swans choose a mate and stay with them for life.

Valentine’s Day – Cards

The first Valentine’s Day card was from the Duke of Orléans—the younger brother of Charles VI, King of France—who sent it to his wife with a poem, in the 15th century. As luck would have it, his mother’s name was—Valentine! Fast forward to 2017:

Did you know that, around the world, people send each other roughly a billion cards decorated with red hearts and flowers?

Valentine’s Day – Chocolate

Is Valentine’s Day a celebration of chocolate? Either way, a box of chocolates—likely in the shape of a heart—is one of the most popular gifts on February 14. In the US, every year, chocolate sales reach or exceed $20 billion!


Valentine’s Day – The color of love

Giving roses is one way to express your love, but not all colors send the same message. A red rose symbolizes passion; white, the purity and sincerity of your feelings; yellow, friendship; orange, carnal desire; and pink, loyalty and sweetness. couplerr.gif

Valentine’s Day – Alone

Cupid often misses his mark. The proof? Roughly 124.6 million American adults were single in 2014. That’s a lot of people who are lonely and probably have no interest in celebrating on February 14. Being alone is tough, which is why numerous help lines notice a rise in the number of calls around Valentine’s Day.
It’s certainly not everyone’s favorite day.

Valentine’s Day – Finland

Alone on Valentine’s Day? Pack your bags for Finland. Okay, that might be a bit far-fetched, but perhaps you should borrow their interesting take on Valentine’s Day. For them, the celebration—Ystävänpäivä—encompasses much more than lovers.

It’s a celebration of friends. Their unique interpretation of this holiday ensures no one is left behind. Pretty great, isn’t it?

Valentine’s Day – Marriage proposals

Popping the big question on Valentine’s Day isn’t terribly original. It’s pretty romantic, but choosing that particular day seems a bit too planned and obvious. And don’t think you’re the only one who’s thought of it!

There are around 220,000 marriage proposals on Valentine’s Day each year in the United States. What would happen if you waited until February 15? valentine-ca-cupid.gif

But seriously…….It was once said: “I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”

I do believe that we have built a bridge my friends..so from your hearts to mine..Bless you all and thank you for being keepers of the Flame.

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.”
Thank y’all for keeping me sort of sane.

I love you my fellow patriots. Never give up your love of country and what is righteous. We Will Not Submit.

THIS is what I am makin today…Any takers?..lolz

Healthy version!

“Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart.”

    When people watch an awards show they want to see the awards show. Not those A-holes who Parade around in their Pussy Hats. We don’t care about all the crap complaining and whining. Do you take away from the glamour by complaining about Trump instead of getting Awards. Isn’t that just like a wacko Liberal.

    Keep it on that dumb Saturday Night Live crappy show. That way I can Shut them all down at the same time.
