Light relief

After my last deep thinking and potentially profound post, today I present, at great personal expense a little light entertainment. 

Roses are red..
Valentines day
"Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs, Saint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 500 AD. It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards. " source wikipedia 

So in the best of valentine traditions, here is the e-card I have sent to Mrs RJR with the help of those nice people at JibJab 

Enjoy your Valentines Day and remember

"If you love em ...Tell em !!"
