Word of the Day: Te quiero, te adoro, mi vida
Translation: I love you, I adore you, my life
Pronunciation: teh kk-yair-row, teh adoor-row, me vee-dthah

More lyrics from Buena Vista Social Club’s, “Dos Gardenias para Ti” for Valentine’s Day.

The thing about Saint Valentine is that nobody really knows who he was! Some Roman guy who told the Emperor to go stick it. Maybe. He’s not even a real saint. Ain’t that the way it goes? The whole thing might be some kind of eighteen hundred year old scam!

Valentine, the name, it seems, is related to our word – valor. Which is an interesting association if you think about it -courage and love. So be brave and practique estas palabras de hoy (practice these words today) on someone, or something.
