"More than a Hallmark holiday, Valentine's Day, like Halloween, is rooted in pagan partying....

"The lovers' holiday traces its roots to raucous annual Roman festivals where men stripped naked, grabbed goat- or dog-skin whips, and spanked young maidens in hopes of increasing their fertility, said classics professor Noel Lenski of the University of Colorado at Boulder."

Heh...

I guess I should add something more meaningful though... I am grateful every day for the love in my life (and for the love of my life), and wish everyone a life filled with love :)

"Some may try to deny it, but by now there’s next to no doubt that global warming is having real, profound effects on the world we live in. Perhaps one of the most alarming changes is occurring in the world’s oceans and endangering islands with diverse ecosystems, rich cultures, and breathtaking, beautiful landscapes."...

"The burgeoning field of neuroscience emits a fairly constant stream of evidence for meditation’s positive impact on immune response, cardiovascular functioning, the brain itself. Meditation can change the brain—measurably. Scientists can see a thickening of the cortex areas where memory and empathy reside. In one famous study, subjects who meditated showed less activity in an area associated with negative emotions like anger, depression, and anxiety, and more activity in the area associated with buoyancy, optimism, and confidence. They also had a stronger immune reaction to flu vaccine than did those in control groups. And all these differences show up in eight weeks."

Yum, wow... My cousin and his wife gave us this book for Christmas, and tonight, on a whim, my husband made the Black Bean and Cheese Empanadas (with his own improv vegan queso)... they were amazing and ultra-delicious...
