Here is a nice place to note down anything related to the Day, Month, Year, etc

For a starter,
Today, it is February 2, 2020 - written as a number, (02-02-2020) is a Palindrome number (can be read the same in both directions),
so the day is called a Palindrome Day

A Palindrome Day happens when the day’s date can be read the same way backward and forward.

How did January - February get its name?

January was named for the double-headed god Janus, who looked into the past (the old year) and present-future (the new year),
but its follow-up was called after “the old word februum,” writes Censorinus.


February - As the month best known for Valentine’s Day—a legendary saint beheaded for his religious convictions, not his passion for true love—
February had close ties to ancient Rome.


What’s februum, you may ask? A means of ritual purification. Latin word.

“anything that consecrates or purifies is a februum,” claimed the Latins of ancient Rome,
and this is how February got its name!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Valentine’s Day Quotes
From Shakespeare to Aristotle and others, see how writers through history have expressed the power of love.



Love is among the greatest muses, inspiring the world’s most famous romantics, from Shakespeare, who wrote 154 sonnets dealing with love, time, beauty and mortality, to Chilean poet and diplomat Pablo Neruda. The work of these authors, poets and playwrights speaks to the enduring power of love across the ages of human history.

Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.– Aristotle

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.– Lao Tzu

My bounty is as boundless as the sea, My love as deep; the more I give to thee, The more I have, for both are infinite.– William Shakespeare

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you … I could walk through my garden forever.– Alfred Tennyson

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.– Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.– Henry Ward Beecher

Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.– Anais Nin

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward in the same direction.– Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires; To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.– Kahlil Gibran

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.–Helen Keller

Love consists of this: two solitudes that meet, protect and greet each other.— Rainer Maria Rilke

Love does not dominate; it cultivates.– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.– Zora Neale Hurston

Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love.– Leo Tolstoy

Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it, and it darts away.– Dorothy Parker

Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star. — E.E. Cummings

I have learned not to worry about love; but to honor its coming with all my heart.– Alice Walker

We're all a little weird, and life's a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. — Dr. Seuss

There is no remedy for love but to love more. — Henry David Thoreau

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.– Pablo Neruda

On these times of Lockdown due to the Covid-19
laughing is part of keeping us healthy & sane ;)

I got this from a friend,
and hope that at least it breaks a smile for you, too!!

The following is from an actual trial in the UK.

A young woman, obviously several months pregnant, was sitting in a bus.

When she noticed a young man smiling at her, she began to feel uncomfortable due to her condition.

She got up and changed her seat yet the young man seemed more amused.

She moved again and the man laughed even harder!

They met again in court because she filed a harrassment case against him.

The young man’s defence was:

When the lady boarded the bus I couldn’t help noticing that she was pregnant. And then I saw that she sat under a movie ad which read,

Coming soon – The Creature from Hell!

I was even more amused when she moved and second time and sat under a female deodorant advertisement which read,

The love stick did the trick.

Then I completely lost it when she moved for a third time and sat down under an advertisement for tyres which read,

Dunlop Rubber would have prevented this accident.

I simply couldn’t help it.

The case was dismissed because the Judge fell off his chair, laughing!
Just saying!
