Happy Valentine's Day

Did you know that nearly 150 million cards are exchanged each Valentine's Day?

Or that more than 40,000 American are employed at chocolate companies?

141 million cards are exchanged annually on this day, making Valentine's Day the second-most popular greeting-card-giving occasion.

Over 50 percent of all Valentine's Day cards are purchased in the six days prior to the observance, making Valentine's Day a procrastinator's delight.


Of course the Starving Artists team thinks jewelry is the best gift! What did you give your Valentine's sweetheart this year?

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day.

We went out to dinner. Hee - it's not that were especially sentimental but we had a gift certificate and figured that was as good a time as any to use it!
