Happy Valentines Day

This should probably be considered the national day for romance readers.  It features two of the crucial ingredients any self-respecting romance lover considers essential:  love and chocolate. Which reminds me of the first and original RomantiCon convention I went to.  There was a chocolate smorgasboard (yes, you read that right). One buffet of chocolate and
