We offer our heartfelt condolences to Stewart McLeod in the loss of his wife Margaret. Her sudden passing was such a shock for Stewart and the family as she was preparing a family meal in their Desert View home at the time. Margaret & Stewart have owned a home here since 2003. We send our love and best wishes to Stewart and the family.

February is the second month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendars. It’s the shortest month and the only month with fewer than 30 days. The month has 28 days in common years or 29 days in leap years.

Zodiac Signs – are Aquarius (until February 18) and Pisces (February 19 forward).

Birthstones – is the amethyst. It symbolizes piety, humility, spiritual wisdom, and sincerity.

Flowers – are the violet and the common primrose.


Valentine’s Sayings:

Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you. But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead, the sugar bowl’s empty and so is your head.

Kind, intelligent, loving and hot – this describes everything you are not.

I want to feel your sweet embrace, but please don’t take that paper bag off of your face.

The most effective way to remember your wife’s birthday is to forget it once.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing: either the car is new or the wife.

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
