The worst-tempered people I have ever met were those who knew that they were wrong.

A Sad Love Story Of Antony And Cleopatra

The true love story of Antony and Cleopatra is one of the most memorable, intriguing and moving of all times.

The story of these two historical characters had later been dramatized by William Shakespeare and is still staged all over the world.

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor

The relationship of Antony and Cleopatra is a true test of love. They fell in love at first sight. The relationship between these two powerful people put the country of Egypt in a strong position. However, their love affair outraged the Romans who were wary of the growing power of the Egyptians. Despite all the threats, Anthony and Cleopatra got married.

It is said that while fighting a battle against Romans, Antony got false news of Cleopatra's death. Shattered, he fell on his sword.

When Cleopatra learned about Antony's death, she was distraught and later she took her own life.

Great love demands great sacrifices.

````

Jim asked his friend, Tony, whether he had bought his wife anything for Valentine's Day.

'Yes,' came the answer from Tony who was a bit of a chauvinist, 'I've bought her a belt and a bag.'

'That was very kind of you,' Jim added, 'I hope she appreciated the thought.'

Tony smiled as he replied, 'So do I, and hopefully the vacuum cleaner will work better now.'

````

Odysseus and Penelope: A Story Commitment to Love

Few couples understand sacrifice quite like this Greek pair.

After being torn apart, they wait twenty long years to be reunited. War takes Odysseus away shortly after his marriage to Penelope. Although she has little hope of his return, she resists the 108 suitors who are anxious to replace her husband.

Odysseus is equally devoted, refusing a beautiful sorceress's offer of everlasting love and eternal youth, so that he might return home to his wife and son.

We feel that this story, written by Homer, reminds us all that true love is worth waiting for.

````

Roger, who was 19 years old, was buying an expensive bracelet, to surprise his girlfriend on Valentine's Day, at a very smart jeweller's shop in Hatton Garden, London.

The jeweller inquired, 'Would you like your girlfriend's name engraved on it?'

Roger thought for a moment, grinned, then answered, 'No, instead engrave "To my one and only love".'
The jeweller smiled and said, 'Yes, sir; how very romantic of you.'

Roger retorted with a glint in his eye, 'Not exactly romantic, but very practical. This way, if we break up, I can use it again.'

True Love Story - Flybe Airline Plays Cupid

Michael Young fell in love with a fellow passenger on a Flybe flight from Belfast to Newcastle. The girl who caught his attention was Juliet Lever, who was sitting next to him in row 2. Sadly, Michael was too shy to ask Juliet for her phone number. He confirmed this on the Victoria Derbyshire show on BBC Radio 5 Live today. A true love story - Flybe plays cupid

He pined for her so much after they parted that he contacted the airline and begged bosses to ask her to get in touch with the girl in seat 2C. They obliged and Juliet, 29, phoned him and they agreed to go out to dinner. A whirlwind romance followed and they got married the next month.

Juliet, who now lives with Michael in Manchester, said, 'Every girl dreams of a fairytale romance and you couldn't get better than this.'

Flybe's Head of Customer Relations, Ella Jones commented, 'Michael's tale pulled heart strings so we played cupid.'

````

One morning Emma woke up with a start. Her husband Jim asked what was the matter, she told him, "I just had a dream that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's day. What do you think it means?"

"You'll know tonight," Jim said.

That evening, Jim home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, Emma opened it - only to find a book entitled "The meaning of dreams".

True Inspirational Love Story -

A Canadian man is writing to 3,700 Belgian women called Sabine in a bid to find a sweetheart. Marc Lachance met a Belgian woman called Sabine on a bus trip to Havana while he was on holiday in Cuba.

He told De Morgen, the online news agency, 'We liked each other and spent the day together. But I was too shy to ask her address or telephone number.'

Back in Canada, he realised Sabine could be the woman of his life and began his efforts to track her down. 'All I know is she speaks French and she was travelling with a friend named Klara', said Mr Lachance.

'Finally, I looked up in the phonebook the addresses of all women named Sabine. There are 3,700 of them. I was shocked it's such a popular name.' Mr Lachance has so far written to all the women named Sabine in Brussels. Soon he will send letters to the Sabines in Namur, then the rest of the country.

'It is costing me a lot of money', he admitted, 'And what if her name is not in the phonebook - I dare not think of that.'


Lovelorn Canadian Tracks Down His Sabine - Update


The Canadian Marc Lachance who was writing to 3,700 Belgian women called Sabine in a bid to find a sweetheart has struck lucky. What seemed like love failure turned into success.

'But I didn't find her by letter', he told De Morgen. 'Her brother had heard about my search on the Belgian radio and told her the story. I was so happy she found me', he said. 'And she said she is still thinking about me. We had only but a very short moment on the phone but she promised to send me a large e-mail'.

'She said she wanted me to show her country. If she does, I'm on the first plane to Belgium.'

````

Mike walked into a post office just before Valentine's day, he couldn't help noticing a middle-aged, balding man standing in a corner sticking "Love" stamps on bright pink envelopes with hearts all over them. Then the man got out a bottle of Channel perfume from his pocket and started spraying scent over the envelopes.

By now Mike's curiosity had got the better of him, and so I asked the man why he was sending all those cards. The man replied, "I'm sending out 500 Valentine cards signed, 'Guess who?'"

"But why?" asked Mike.

"I'm a divorce lawyer," the man replied.

Joe, I feel your pain on the gloom, I really need the sun to lift my mood. Winters are very gray and dreary here. Do you still have Beau?

Have a great day all! The start of a busy week but no late visits so far, so I shouldn't fall behind this week.

Hope you see the sun soon and get sufficient sleep on Monday, Joe. grin

Hope your busy week goes well, Ana. That's great that you have no late visits so far. thumbsup

It's Sunday night, and I'm off to sleep. Once again, I didn't get the gaming time I wanted, and I have another crazy week ahead. It's never fun when these resets come up. crazy I specifically request a robot for these jobs, but it hasn't happened yet. lol

Have a great Monday, everyone. winter

Good Morning Folks,

Working from home today and getting ready for the next snow-pocalypse that should be hitting later this afternoon. Need to get out and fill the bird feeders too, our feathered friends really took a dent out of the seed yesterday as soon as the snow started. winter

Magnificent Monday ya'll puppy

It's a beautiful, sunny day in AL. For those seeking the sun, come on down. It's chilly to me, but would be warm to you guys from the frozen north.

I spent a couple of hours getting supper into the crock pot this morning. Now I'm impatiently waiting to eat it rotfl

Va. son's family all have the crud...so not fun when everyone is sick at once.

I'll be heading back into the library to continue my quest to make it an enjoyable room once again.

You guys in the way of snow-pocalyse stay warm.
