On this day

The Feast Day of St. Valentine, patron saint of lovers.
There were fourteen Saint Valentines - Of the Saint Valentine whose feast is on 14th February nothing is known, except his name and that he was buried at the Via Flaminia north of Rome today.
The day first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
Gretna Green, historically the first village in Scotland, has been performing weddings since 1754.
They originated from cross-border elopements stemming from differences between Scottish marriage laws and those in neighbouring countries.
And; 'there's not enough love to go round'.

The deregulation of banking by thatcherism; has led to the deregulation of society.
Never forget (sucker) that before thatcherism; building societies came about, cos the banks were ripping plebs off.
What you say; our fellow humans wouldn't do that...
Remember the very recent 'magic money tree' and the hu ha about it.
Private banks and the government can magic up money when ever they want to - forget interest rates sending you into poverty - QE -now only expediently 'used' - was a vain attempt to keep the western world ahead of the wealth game.
You aint seen nothing yet - did you become a greedy get!
