Alas, that time of year is approaching again! It is nearly the annual celebration of all things that are red and heart-shaped. Valentines Day sees restaurants and hotel rooms booked out and couples cuddling on every park bench in the country. It's always difficult to decide upon a present for your lover. Perhaps you should pop into the library and get some ideas for crafty gifts. Or for the slightly more cynical a good Valentines Day murder mystery might give you some nifty ideas.
Whatever you do, make sure that those you love know that you love them, for in the words of Henry Van Dyke:
"Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love, time is eternity."
