Where did January go? Yup, the month of January is over (so quickly) and Valentine is upon us. It's funny but I remember that I was at the mall shortly after Christmas and National Bookstore's display was suddenly filled with hearts. Talk about going on to the next occasion. In a few more days, we'll see togas and diplomas for sure. [more]
