The bigger the heart, the bigger your love for your Valentine, right? We scoured a map of the U.S. to find some hearts measured in acres: Heart Lakes. These charmingly named bodies of water can help show your turtledove you're awash with love. And there's a bonus: They're near cozy inns or romantic bed and breakfasts. Once you have your sweetheart in the right place, the rest is up to you. And remember, romance isn't just for Valentine's Day, so if you're on vacation any time of year, a detour may be in order.

For a moment, I set the Gideon's aside -- that's a Bible, not a Scotch -- and take to the jittery streets of what would probably pass for the L.A. of Canada. Vancouver. V-Town. Protesters. Lots of pot. Women of dubious values. Amazing how all those traits usually travel in herds. This is the country, after all, that gave us Margaret Trudeau, a stormy gal who, you may recall, was once married to the prime minister and then -- only for a brief time, maybe a day -- Bullwinkle the Moose.

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.

Love in Los Angeles? You want to know about love in Los Angeles? It's still like the man said, some 70 jaded years ago: "It's a Barnum and Bailey world/ Just as phony as it can be/ But it wouldn't be make believe/ If you believed in me." Granted, when the Broadway lyricists E.Y. Harburg and Billy Rose wrote "Paper Moon" with Harold Arlen in 1933, hoping the song would find its way west and into a movie and make them MGM-style rich, they may not have mentioned L.A. outright.

" 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.

Nothing says "I love you" like divorce papers. So a Michigan lawyer has decided to celebrate Valentine's Day by giving away a free divorce. Walter H. Bentley III says he got the idea after a student at a night-school class he teaches invited him to a party to celebrate her divorce. He told ABC News that this led to a revelation: "Why not do something special for Valentine's Day? You can't find a new love before you close the chapter on the old. " According to Bentley's website , the winner of the free divorce has to come up with "the most compelling and convincing story" attesting to why he or she deserves a free ride to relationship freedom.

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and, like most, our thoughts turn to martyrdom. Love hurts, but probably not as much as what was done to the saints the heart-shaped-box holiday is named after. There were at least three St. Valentines, according to New Advent's Catholic Encyclopedia (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15254a.htm), and all were martyrs. Although details are fuzzy, Catholic Online Saints (http://www.catholic.org/saints/saints/valentine.

I'm in my traditional Cupidian buying frenzy leading up to Valentine's Day, my major organs bursting with good intentions, not knowing quite where to turn, getting a little angry about it actually -- the frustrations of unbridled romance, bordering on malice, verging on angina. Is this what they call lovesick? Or is it that wad-nut of food still stuck in my gullet from the Super Bowl party? During the power outage, I washed down the perfect barbecue sandwich with a double dose of chili, chased by teriyaki meatballs and fistfuls of Lebanese chicken, topped by about 50 oatmeal cookies.
