    The human race must be in love or......

    Was in the city today and by 3pm it was worse than any Xmas Eve. A total mad house, cars parked right in the entrances of parking lots, lots jammed full.
    What for? Cheap chocolates, and flowers.

    Both women and men with crazed looks in their eyes, tempers flared up standing in long lines to pay.

    Geez all I wanted was some grub, I don't buy into this day not even 1%. If I can't show my loving and caring the other 364 days of the year this one day isn't going to cut it.

    I would say the phenomenon you witnessed is caused more by guilt than love.

    Wife said nearly 30 yrs ago not to waste money on over priced flowers.
    I can honestly say those were the sweetest words that a man could hear, and I always do what I'm told.

    32 for me. She says "Let's go for a drink before we have dinner with the kids at home". I say "OK". I think "That's whacked. It's Valentine's Day. Packed and over priced". We go, have drinks, and 2 appys, and the bill comes. She says" This is such a rip off on Valentine's Day". I smile and say nothing (why would I?) $108 out the door.

    I'll repeat the scenario in 364 days....

    We don't celebrate the day but the 15th we get candy and flowers a lot cheaper so we can celebrate our anniversary the 16th.

    We celebrate the little wins we get in life, that seems to do it for us. After a while how much stuff do we really need-just more stuff.
    Don't get me wrong there's always the wish list tucked away.

    But sometimes its like a friend said one time " Sometimes we just have to take a little bit of money off the table."

    But not for these hyped up events.

    Very troubling events and the 13th this year alone. Wonder where the love and compassion has really gone when it starts so young.

    Its sad but until parents wake up nothing will change. If you don't want security then its a soft target. Shame on those parents and that school.
    Everyone acts so shocked when it happens. Wake up people!

    Rip to the 17.

    These things are great for furthering the anti second agenda. Don't expect any real changes.
