Jeff:

Your timing sucks, mate. The day before SVD might’ve been a tad better for these tips.

In fairness, given that I’m on the far side of the planet from my wife, nothing short of a Star Trek level transporter, complete with site-to-site beaming capability, would have done much to enhance our effectively non-existent Valentine’s Day call-it-observance-if-you-want-to-but-it-wasn’t celebration.

For those of us separated from our beloved, Skype and FaceTime, and online orders, will have to suffice.
