I needed an escape from reality, so I ordered Clea Calloway's book Burning Gold. Luckily, it did the trick and it was a page-turner. I could not put it down until I finished it. If you like an easy read and a good mystery/love story I suggest you order a copy from Amazon. I can't wait for her next book. I promise I am not a paid sponsor, but now a huge fan . - feeling happy.

Valentine's Day. What might this fine day conger up in your mind?Romance? Agriculture? Pagan Festivals? Wolves? Goats skins dipped in blood and slapped on women? No? That is NOT what you were thinking?  Well, Tis True! After the middle ages, during the pagan festival of Lupercalia, Roman women welcomed the touch of the hides because it was believed to make them more fertile in the coming year. And I mean, yeah. . .how sexy is THAT? Cannot resist - I do not know why Victoria's Secret is not all over this. . .

Anyway, later in the day, according to legend, slathered in goats blood and bleating with desire, (click the video so you can get in the mood while reading - think "50 Shades of Goat")
Do Goats Make Noise?
50 Shades of Goat?
all the young women in the city would place their names in a big urn. The city's bachelors would each choose a name and become paired for the year with his chosen woman. This is TRUELY and HONESTLY, and I swear on Lupa herself, how got started! These matches often ended in marriage, of which, statistically, 50% of those ended in divorce, again, just like! Oh, can you FEEL the LOVE?!

No matter which way you decide to look at it, Valentine's Day is a marketing boondoggle!  Cards! Strawberry covered chocolates! Flowers! Scrumptious steak! Lobster tail dipped in copious amounts of butter! Potatoes au gratin! Champagne! More cards! More chocolates! It's a wonder any romance happens at all - I mean, yawn, I need a nap after all of that! Ummm. . .maybe I should have channeled my inner-wolf and gone for the goat skins. Oh well, there's always next year!
