Top 10 list of the outrageously expensive Valentines Gifts

The "Dance with Shadows" web site writes :

Quoting  begins What will you do for your significant other this Valentine's day? For me, I like the "KISS" concept -- and while a kiss is always appreciated, "keep-it-simple-stupid" seems appropriate for these leaner times. How about fixing dinner? A nice one. Or, just a bottle of champagne, a romantic DVD and just the two of you on the sofa? Or, perhaps flowers, and a dinner invitation to that exclusive little spot you've been wanting to check out! Quoting  ends

A Font with emotion : My Valentines Love

Future man and machine

"My Valentine's Love" font, 50+ free Beautiful Graphics to Show Your Love! - The folks at the Font Cafe write :
      You are probably already aware of the fact that certain fonts can stimulate the brain and change a reader's state of mind. The type of font face you use is crucial to your work because it persuades the reader unconsciously. It colors how your readers will interpret the text... and it creates strong emotions about what you’ve created. At FontsCafe we have designed a series of exclusive fonts that do just that. Our “feel good” fonts are perfect for all your projects when you need a little emotion injected into them. . . . . DOWNLOAD ICON
