Storms and Valentine's Day

How have you been managing with the storms? There's been a lot of snow in some parts of the country, tornados in other parts. 

Valentine's day is coming up - is it a day you like,  a day you don't like , or is it just another day?

Speaking of Valentine's Day, did you know about One Billion Rising?

To show the world that we want to end violence against one billion women and girls! By being a part of One Billion Rising we will all discover our solidarity and the scope of this issue. We will come to know that ending violence against women is as important as ending poverty, or Aids or global warming. We will come to see that it is not a local issue or particular to any culture or religion or village or age. We will come to see what is possible. When One Billion bodies rise and dance on 14 February 2013, we will join in solidarity, purpose and energy and shake the world into a new consciousness.

For more information here is the link http://onebillionrising.org/

I live in an area right between the storms. We've had some wind, rain, sleet, and snow but nothing severe. I used to love Valentine's Day when my kids were really young because we really had fun with it but now it's just usually a nice day where I get my husband a gift and he gets me one and we have a nice dinner.

That one billion looks interesting and I will check it out.

We had some snow but not as much as some places. As far as Valentine's Day goes it's a quiet day at our house, we don't really celebrate it.

It sounded like it was going to be quite the event.  Glad to hear it was a good experience for you.
