When you get down to it, February 14th has a rather bleak history.

Blood and death, in the midst of warped love stories, I know, from first hand experience, is a real part of the background of this date. My maternal grandmother, Nellie Gray (pictured below), was the victim of a murder-suicide on Valentine’s Day, 1940.

A couple of years ago, for Valentine’s Day, we were in search of a specific kind of Chupacabras beer, which does have a creepy vampire notion to it, of course.
So, we are looking for suggestions for what our next Valentine-Crypto artifact to discover should be. Any ideas?
Happy Valentine’s Day.
