They Say Our Love..


"They say we're young, and we don't know, and we won't find out until we grow.

Well, I don't know if all that's true 'Cause you got me, and baby, I got you.

They say our love won't pay the rent, before it's earned, our money's all been spent.

I guess that's so we don't have a pot, but at least I'm sure of all the things we got.

Babe. I got you, babe, I got you, babe..."


From the famous Romeo and Juliet song by Sonny and Cher in the 1960s, the mega-hit song ‘I Got You, Babe’ was written for all the young people who are finding their first love.  Of course, all older and experienced people always spill out the old, your love won't pay the rent, but I say any love and any love at any legal age should be experienced and savored.  With a limited number of days on this earth, you need to act on love when it comes to you.  I say follow your heart, you never know when it might last and be a life-long marriage.  



...I say any love and any love at any legal age should be experienced and savored.

Valentine's Day celebrated on February 14th, traces its origins back to ancient Rome and the festival of Lupercalia, a fertility celebration dedicated to Faunus, the Roman god of agriculture. During Lupercalia, young men would draw women's names from a jar, and they would be coupled for the festival's duration, sometimes leading to marriage.



The holiday's Christian association began in the 5th century when Pope Gelasius I combined Lupercalia with St. Valentine's Day, commemorating the martyrdom of St. Valentine, a Roman priest who defied Emperor Claudius II's ban on marriage for young men, performing marriages in secret. Legend has it that he sent the first "Valentine" greeting to his jailer's daughter, signing it "From your Valentine" before his execution on February 14, 269 AD.



...Valentine's Day remains a cultural phenomenon. It's a day for expressing affection and appreciation through gifts, gestures, and acts of love.

In the Middle Ages, the tradition of exchanging handmade cards, known as "Valentines," became popular. By the 19th century, mass-produced valentines replaced handmade ones, and the holiday's commercialization began.


Today, Valentine's Day remains a cultural phenomenon. It's a day for expressing affection and appreciation through gifts, gestures, and acts of love. Couples often exchange cards, flowers, chocolates, and romantic dinners, while others use the occasion to propose marriage or reaffirm their commitment.



Valentine's Day is always in style...

Social media and technology have also transformed how lovers celebrate Valentine's Day. Platforms like Instagram and TikTok are flooded with romantic posts, declarations of love, and creative ways to celebrate the day, reflecting the digital age's influence on modern romance.



...flowers, chocolates, and romantic dinners, while others use the occasion to propose marriage or reaffirm their commitment.

Valentine's Day is always in style despite its commercialization and evolving traditions. It’s a reminder to express your soft and cuddly side, strengthen relationships, and celebrate the timeless power of love.

The dirt is waiting for us all.   Live while you can and get your fair share of life. There is NO future staying in that sunken sofa.
