Kenneth Foster got an early Valentine's Day treat Tuesday, delivered by four red-vested, bow-tied singers. "Dear valentine, my valentine . . . " sang the lead, Art Clayton; tenor, John Rambo; bass, Fred Robirds; and baritone, Stan Tinkle. Along with their harmonious tunes, the barbershop quartet, known as Jubilee, also sang "Happy Birthday" to the surprised Foster, who turned 67 Tuesday.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period. They kicked off their weight-loss "strategies" on Jan. 10 . Got lucky and got to take exactly who I wanted on a nice Valentine's Day dinner Monday night. We had the most interesting conversation, several shots of whiskey, and yes, America, some dishes that were going to help me get neither fit nor trim. RELATED: Two guys lose weight: The journey A while back, I remembered that she was inspired while at a yoga studio.

I am considered "a catch" only in certain Third World countries, where my limited ability to read and write and my fondness for simple things like the squeeze bunt and a good crisp apple are not viewed as a lack of sophistication, as they often are here in America, in our First World home. So Valentine's Day takes on added significance for me. Each year, I must woo my wife again, start from scratch really. In marriage, there's no such thing as tenure.

"Valentine's Day" and "sightseeing tour" probably shouldn't be uttered in the same sentence. But I like the pace and low cost of this night-time spin around New York City . The Highline, the Statue of L i berty and the top of 30 Rock as well as dinner in Little Italy are all part of the tour for $79 a person. The deal: The five-hour Night on the Town Tour from Gray Line New York takes $10 off each ticket by buying online rather than at a ticket booth or elsewhere.

My Valentine's name is Julie. She was born on my first wedding anniversary, Valentine's Day. She was beautiful. She was perfect. Feb. 14, which was already important in our house, became a very big deal indeed. It was like another Christmas. And it remained that way for a little more than three years--until the day Julie rode her tricycle into the pool while her mother was setting the table for lunch. Julie was just over the chicken pox, and I had promised to swim with her that afternoon.

Yolanda Miranda spent two months planning for Valentine's Day this year -- assembling hundreds of cellophane-wrapped gift baskets, designing dozens of flower bouquets, hunting for deals on teddy bears, holiday mugs and picture frames. A year ago, she made $3,000 peddling Valentine's Day gifts from a folding table in a Northridge parking lot. This year, she doubled her offerings, staked out three spots, and imagined dollar signs over every heart. But on Sunday night, Miranda was pacing the sidewalk in front of her home, her melting candy, wilted roses and untouched pile of teddy bears crowding her tiny front lawn.

The Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas is, to me, an island of elegance in the city of seemingly endless hotels. The luxury brand in one of the Strip's shiny CityCenter high-rises snagged a five-star rating last year from Forbes Travel Guide. And what better time to check in and check it out than Valentine's Day? The deal: I found a few deals for a mid-February stay, depending on how much you want to pay. Note that standard amenities at the Mandarin include free Wi-Fi, gym passes, free morning coffee and tea, and more.
