A wonderful resource for pet lovers that want to travel with their pets is Go Pet Friendly. I can personally vouch for the service and the owners since I know them. Amy and Rod Burkert started Go Pet Friendly along with their dogs, Ty and Buster. Per Amy and Rod:
We're on a mission to make it easy for you to enjoy fantastic travel experiences with your pets! It all started when we decided to take a road trip to Canada. We experienced pure frustration - and spent more than two days - planning the trip. It was a hassle finding pet friendly hotels, tracking down their policies, and locating restaurants and activites that we could all enjoy together. That's when we had our "aha" moment.
As usual, the big trend in toys is KGOY or “Kids getting older younger,” or more simply, “age-compression.” In short, kids want to play with stuff their older siblings and parents play with, which is why we’re seeing so many iPhone-based offshoots this time around.
Take a look at the toys featured. The toy that kinda gives me the creeps is Baby iCan Play iPhone case, Fisher-Price. The one that makes me laugh is the "Brick" iPhone case.
I always suspected that Hallmark originated Valentine's Day, but it appears I was wrong.
Saint Valentine's Day, commonly shortened to Valentine's Day, is an annual commemoration held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions.
The day is named after one or more early Christian martyrs, Saint Valentine, and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD.
It was deleted from the Roman calendar of saints in 1969 by Pope Paul VI, but its religious observance is still permitted.
It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offeringconfectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. [Wikipedia]
