Valentine's Day cards are as much a part of the tradition of the
holiday as chocolate and flowers.  Visit PostcardsOnline to send your
own free animated postcards.  The object of your affection can receive
your postcard via email in an attached EXE file (for Windows users) or
via their web browser by clicking a link that is emailed to them.
Choose from I Love You, Valentines, Missing You, and postcards for
other holidays as well.  They've got cards that that feature sound and
music too.  The best way to try it out is to view the Valentine's Day
card from your beloved Busdriver waiting for you at:
I promise it'll bring a tear to your eyes.  :-)  After you view my
card, you can send one of your own to someone special. 
Virtual Chocolate
----------------- the on-line place to send your friends and loved ones a free
virtual treat, send the real thing, or find fellow chocolate lovers
and products worldwide.  The pictures do look good enough to eat, so
have some moist towelettes on hand to clean up the monitor just in case. 
Virtual Valentine at the C*E*A
In their annual tribute to love, hearts, flowers and all that sort of
stuff, the Centre For The Easily Amused's Virtual Valentine offers four
musical selections for your enjoyment.  Whether you're floating around
in an endorphin-induced stupor, or you've vowed never to fall in love
again, you'll get a hearty chortle out of this.
What makes it fun is that they've interspersed links to their favorite
amusing sites in the lyrics to these "classic" love songs.  Check out
the lyrics to "Love Hurts", "I Love You (But You're Boring)", and "When
I'm Back On My Feet Again", replete with silly links.  Lot's of fun! 
Not For Lovers Only
Realizing that Valentine's day elicits a wide range of responses,
here's a Shockwave game that'll bring joy to your heart no matter
how you feel about all that lovey-dovey hoopla.  The "Kiss or Clobber
the Cupid!" game is a way for both factions to enjoy themselves in the
holiday spirit.  Kiss the Cupid if you are feeling soft and fuzzy, or
Clobber the little pest if you are feeling cold and prickly.
The game is about 500KB, so it'll take a few minutes to appear on your
screen.  And if you don't have the Shockwave plugin, you can use a link
on this page to download it first. 
Funny, But No.

greeting cards?  An interesting look inside the greeting card
Olive Hue Two
Ever wonder how they say "I love you" in Yiddish, Yugoslavian or
Swahili?  Wonder no more.  You can find the lexicon of love for
about 200 languages at the address below: 
My favorite is the Bengali - "Ami tomake bhalobashi."
Shakespeare In Love?
If you still can't find the right words to express yourself, try
reciting these time-tested words from the Bard himself.  A little
poetry just makes the place seem so much classier, don't it?
   Let me not to the marriage of true minds
   Admit impediments. Love is not love
   Which alters when it alteration finds,
   Or bends with the remover to remove:
   O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
   That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
   It is the star to every wandering bark,
   Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
   Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
   Within his bending sickle's compass come:
   Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
   But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
   If this be error and upon me proved,
   I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
   -- William Shakepeare (1564 - 1616)
That's all for now, see you next time!  -- From Your Ever-Lovin'
Busdriver (who is celebrating the second anniversary of the day he
traded his IBM employee badge for a chance to work at home in
his underwear)  -- Bob Rankin
