Morning Reads for Thursday, February 14th

536969_312712005498857_1008286355_nGooood morning from Colorado!  Ain’t no party like a Breckenbridg party… and Happy Valentine’s Day.  Here’s hoping you’ve already made reservations for tonight.  Maybe Open Table can help the stragglers? OR Waffle House Offers Annual Candlelight Valentine’s Dinner.

From wikiSt. Valentine’s Day began as a liturgical celebration of a Christian saint named Valentinus. Saint Valentine was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians. During his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution he wrote “from your Valentine” as a farewell to her.

The day was first associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”).



From what I can tell, today’s translation is roughly “Is THIS what I mean to you?!”  A quality make-up experience is probably gonna be highlight of your day, gentlemen 😉  Good luck.

    Way tl; dr–that said did anyone else have really bad issues with NPR this morning? The national feed was all weird but then the local feed was OK. This was when I was waking and getting to work, 5:34 to 6:27.

    I can’t believe I know exactly when I woke up and got to work.

    the jeopardy teen tourney was fun to watch, esp with my 12 year old trivia geek. there were several kids from ga in the tourney–i’m guessing they had a tryout in atl or something…the kid who won is pretty cool…

    Obama changes to pro-gay marriage, Kasim Reed changes to pro-gay marriage. Obama is concerned about school violence, Reed becomes concerned about school violence. Obama comes to Decatur to support pre-K, Reed appears on channel two supporting pre-k. Reed appears regularly on Meet the Press to support Obama’s positions. If you want Reed’s position on anything just check with Obama.
