Title: Happy Valentine's Day
Post by: Donna on 14-Feb-11, 06:59:26 am
There's only 1 couple I'd  :heart: to see together. This is why I started watching just about 8 years ago. I hope where ever Mariah & Kaver are, they are happy. I can't help but wonder.

Valentine’s Day? Yes, it’s true. We can thank our feathered friends for helping to make Valentine’s Day a celebration of love and affection.    
A little history explains the surprising connection. Back in medieval England and France, people believed that February 14 was when birds chose their mates. The date made sense because it was right around when the first birds would start their joyful song after a long, cold winter.

How, you might ask, did a date that marked the mating of birds turn into the Valentine’s Day we celebrate today? A popular theory holds that February 14 became forever linked with love and romance after the famous medieval poet Geoffrey Chaucer used birds to symbolize human lovers in his poems.

We’re sure you’ll agree that even those of us who aren’t poets find inspiration in the amazing beauty of birds.

From Bob Marcotte

“I said you’re the cutest thing that I’ve ever seen
I really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time
Said lovey dovey, I can’t get you out of my mind”
–Lovey Dovey, sung by Otis Redding

Hmmm.
“Lovey dovey.”
Webster’s New World Collegiate Dictionary says this is slang meaning “affectionate, amorous, or very sentimental.”
It doesn’t say how the phrase originated, but I think I got a clue at Irondequoit Bay outlet last week.
I mean, what could be more romantic-looking than this display between two Rock Pigeons?
Pigeons, doves. They’re all in the same family.
I wonder if, way back, somebody saw pigeons doing this, and were just as taken by it as I was, and coined the phrase?

he even has his eyes closed, while she's peeking.  :heart:
