Love — Guess Who?

Click on the following link for a beautiful Valentine Love Story. I have always loved old valentines. I wish I had purchased the ones that I found through the years at various estate and yard sales. They would have made a beautiful collage.

This article is written by my Grandson, Chase Tomlin. I am so proud of him.  I LOVE him much more than old valentines.

The Camels are coming….

The founder of Dubai, Sheik Rashid, was asked about the future of his country, and he replied, “My grandfather rode a camel, my father rode a camel, I ride a Mercedes, my son rides a Land Rover, and my  grandson is going to ride a Land Rover…but my great-grandson is going to ride a camel again.  

“Why is that,” he was asked.

And his reply was, “Difficult times create strong men, strong men create easy times. Easy times create weak men, weak men create difficult times. 

Many will not understand it, but you have to raise warriors, not parasites.” 

Add to that the historical reality that all great empires..the Persians, the Trojans, the  Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, and in later years, the British…all rose and perished within 240 years. 

They were not conquered by external enemies; they rotted from within.

America has now passed that 240 year mark, and the rot is starting to be visible and is accelerating.

We are past the Mercedes and Land Rover Years….the camels are on the horizon. 

The greatest generation consisted of 18 year old kids storming the beaches at Normandy.

And now, two + generations later, some 18-year-old kids want to hide in safe rooms when they hear words that hurt their feelings. 

They want free stuff from the government because they think they are entitled to it. 

Billions of $ were stolen from moronic  “COVID” programs by people who thought they were entitled to it.

Several million Americans have decided they no longer want to work and are happy with whatever they can get from the government. 

The Camels are on the horizon for sure.






The first Valentine cards

The first Valentine cards were sent in the 18th century. Initially these were handmade efforts, as pre-made cards were not yet available. Lovers would decorate paper with romantic symbols including flowers and love knots, often including puzzles and lines of poetry. Those who were less inspired could buy volumes that offered guidance on selecting the appropriate words and images to woo their lover. These cards were then slipped secretly under a door, or tied to a door-knocker.

It was in Georgian Britain that pre-printed cards first began to appear, though these were not yet as popular as they were eventually to become. Perhaps the oldest surviving example dates from 1797: this card, held at York Castle Museum, was sent by one Catherine Mossday to a Mr. Brown of London. It is decorated with flowers and images of Cupid, with a verse printed around the border reading:

Since on this ever Happy day,

All Nature’s full of Love and Play,

Yet harmless still if my design,

‘Tis but to be your Valentine.
