Valentine’s Day: Now and Then

This antique card seems strangely prophetic in regards to the importance of phones, communication, and love, although I’m not sure what’s up with the cupid buns! So, after you connect with your sweetie, kick back, and enjoy some sweet sounds. Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!


Would You Do It for Love?

How spontaneous do you think you really are? Would you participate in a flash mob with enough encouragement? This is a fun snippet displaying one person’s amazement which quickly turns to jealousy when someone very close to them decides to participate in a flash mob without telling them. Not to hurt but to surprise…somehow it backfires. Be careful what you choose to give your loved one this coming Valentine’s Day. Maybe some chocolate and a good book would be a yummy and surefire choice!
