  1. This is a great post and a great list. I was looking to make my own Valentine’s Day article, and this put my idea to shame. Back to the drawing board. I don’t often (almost never) leave comments on posts and columns, but this was so much better of an idea than mine that I thought I had to show my appreciation. Cheers.
