The year is 1970, and the youth of Europe are in the chaotic, ecstatic throes of the sexual revolution.

MY FUNNY VALENTINE

The color red is popping up everywhere.  Chocolatiers and florists are stocking up on heart-shaped boxes and long-stemmed red roses.  Stores are cramming their shelves full of foil hearts and teddies.  Greeting card store owners are rubbing their hands together with glee.  Yes, the Big Holiday approaches... V-Day

As a romance blogger facing my first Valentine's Day posting, I've been feeling the pressure.  Love or hate the holiday, everyone will have romance on their minds to some extent-- what to write?  Then it occurred to me: I'm not the only one stressing about this holiday.  Lonely hearts (or perfectly content singles) have the strain of being solo on a holiday for couples.  Couples are under pressure to be romantic on demand (and since when does Cupid ever stick to a schedule?).  I scanned my shelves.  Could there be an antidote for all this stress? 

TRIVIA QUESTION ANSWER

The answer to the Trivia Question of January 21 is Lady Smuggler, Molly Sneden. Molly and her husband came to Rockland around 1745, and to support his living as a farmer, Molly operated a ferry service across the river to Dobbs Ferry. Their first home, portions of which date back to 1719, was a stone house near the river. During the Revolution, the Snedens sided with the British and refused to sign the Orangetown Resolutions. For this, they were forbidden to operate the ferry or any other boat on the river. Molly continued to ferry British soldiers across.
