Happy Valentines

Some Valentine’s facts, did you know that the name Valentine has its origin in the word Valentius, which means Strong, Vigorous and Healthy, so very apt for the intrepid swimmers planning to cross the Solent in June. Less positive associations are the Valentine’s Day massacre in Chicago in 1929 or the fact that the original St Valentine was beaten almost to death before being beheaded. More cheerfully it is rumoured that Benedict Cumberbatch has chosen St Valentine’s day for his wedding on the Isle of Wight, so congratulations to him, oh and by the way happy Valentine’s day to my lovely wife.
