Isn't it romantic? They're a little hazy, but I can almost see them walk into Four Oaks Restaurant. I guess it's just my imagination, but she is smiling, telling him how happy she is to be here. "I chose it just for you," he is saying, holding out his arms in a gesture that gathers up the cool night air, the starlit sky, the trees out on the patio and the warm glow that illuminates these cozy walls. It is a gift. He says, "I know how much you love these country places." And so she does.

Did you know David Bowie put out an album this year? We're only 6½ months into 2013, but already it feels like an eternity since the glam-rock legend released "The Next Day," his first studio disc since 2003, back in March. (Blame "Yeezus. ") Perhaps that's why Bowie revealed Monday night that he'd made a music video for his song "Valentine's Day. " Even legends need a way into the entertainment-news cycle. PHOTOS: Concerts by The Times Like the tune itself -- a Beatlesque guitar-pop number with a lovely vocal from Bowie -- the "Valentine's Day" video is a fairly straightforward affair, certainly as compared to the higher-concept clips for earlier "Next Day" singles such as " Where Are We Now?

Looking for last-minute ideas for Valentine's Day? Let's start with dessert. Each of these treats comes together using only a handful of ingredients and no special equipment. I will warn you, two of them take a little time to set up: the lemon posset -- a pudding-like dessert -- needs chilling time, and the other, a frozen chocolate zabaglione, freezes like a creamy gelato.  Hazelnut zabaglione: Try a sherry-based zabaglione, whisking in a moderately sweet oloroso with just a touch of hazelnut liqueur.

“Mad Men” is almost always more successful when it approaches Important Social Issues obliquely rather than head-on. Last year's “The Flood” was widely panned for its awkward and heavy-handed depiction of Martin Luther's King's assassination and its aftermath.

On Valentine's Day, there will be no chocolate gifts for young Aly Diabate. "I don't know what chocolate is," said Aly, who was forced into slavery at age 11 to harvest cocoa beans in Ivory Coast. Aly's ignorance of chocolate is forgivable. Like tens of thousands of other child slaves on cocoa farms in Ivory Coast, he subsists on a diet of corn paste and bananas. Less forgivable is the fact that chocolate lovers in the West have been kept in the dark about these harsh realities.

Muslims in Singapore have been advised by their religious leaders not to celebrate Valentine's Day because of its non-Islamic origins, a newspaper said. Murat Mohammed Aris, manager of the office of Singapore's mufti, told the Straits Times that the holiday is off-limits to Muslims. He warned that young Muslim couples who go out for Valentine's Day might get caught up in a romantic mood and risk overstepping the bounds of Islamic morality.
