A Photo a Week Challenge: Colorful

For Nancy’s Challenge this week we have Orchids at Kew Gardens. An annual event providing a burst of color to close out Winter and welcome Spring. The event is always very popular with visitors. This year the Orchids on display were Colombian…

Annual Computer Headset Day

So, it’s February 14th. That day when almost all of us men would like to slink away to a corner and don our headphones to avoid the inevitable burning of the ears for not buying a card, chocolates, flowers, etc… Actually that’s not quite how it is, though we guys like to joke about it between ourselves in the privacy of the pub 😉 The reality is that we actually get our ears burned for things not done as expected / required by our partner throughout the year and poor old Saint Valentine gets the blame for it! Of course, I use the term guys loosely in our modern world – I’m sure that the same situation exists in same-sex relationships too 🙂 And the reality is that we should be showing our partner how much we love them throughout the year, not just today. But if we did that I guess lots of florists and card companies would go bust!

As an aside – My Wife forgot that I was at a friend’s retirement party today and, when I wasn’t home as expected, called to find out where I was – now that’s what love is really about 🙂

Happy Valentines Day everyone 🙂
