Valentine Daze

Be My Valentine At last, the flu bug has been beaten into submission here. Family members are back to work and school, and I am going to go sleep for 6 hours to recover myself - LOL
Valentine’s Day is THREE WEEKS from TODAY! (All the male readers experience temporary blindness - LOL)
I’ve decorated the ol’ blog - added a countdown (I will send the code to anyone who wants it) changed the banner and colors a bit (still tweaking the colors some, it’s hard to find colors that look good and provide enough contrast to show up well.)
WIN FREE CANDY! Russell Stover Chocolates Send in your best Valentine joke, and I will compile them into a post each Friday for a contest, and ask readers to vote for their favorite. You can post your jokes in the comments section, or e-mail them to me here:
Valentine’s Day is Tuesday February 14, so I will announce the winner on Friday, February 17. I will send the winner a free box of Russell Stover Chocolates!
Here’s one to get you started:
A young woman was taking an afternoon nap.
After she woke up, she told her husband, "I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's Day. What do you think it means?"
"You'll know tonight." he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife.
Delighted, she opened it--only to find a book entitled "The meaning of dreams".

I dont have a joke but have been running a contest for Valentines. I will say I wasn't expecting over 50 entries but am so happy it turned out well. :)

Blogger has a message that they are having problems, and are going to be experiencing some downtime. I can't get anything to work, so I am hoping this will get through.

Thank you all for stopping by - I hope the problems are corrected soon!

It's Valentine's Day and a guy walks into a bar.

He's got a bouquet of roses in one hand and a box of candy in the other.

Bartender says, "I'm guessin' those ain't for me."

The guy says, "I'm meeting my wife here."

Bartender says, "what does she look like?"

The guy says, "I don't know. You're the first person I've met, and no offense, but you're not my type."

PLEASE NOTE - MOVED TO NEW BLOG

1-28-06

Hi,

I don't know why, but Blogger has locked me out of my old blog. It still accepts comments, but I can't get it to publish anything new, or make any changes to the template. I even attempted to use FTP to upload it to my domain, but that also failed.

I struggled with it for days, writing letters to Blogger Help and Support, all for naught, so I’m starting over at:
http://enterthelaughter.blogspot.com/

Trying to notify all of my previous links. Trying not to think evil thoughts - LOL

I would love the code for the countdown that you have-it's awesome. I bet I could rig it for just about anything so it would be very useful but I would first use it for valentines day-even though I am a male-Nice blog!
