Well, if you must, you must, I suppose…
Given the date, I suppose I should post at least something about Valentine’s Day.
The problem with Valentine’s Day is I think it’s utter crap – a con trick by the greetings cards manufacturers to persuade us to part with our hard-earned cash. Why women fall for this fake romance bollox is utterly beyond me and it goes past in this house without notice, which is the way I prefer it.
But, having had my ten pennorth of bile, for those who prefer to mark the day in some way, here are some ideas:
