Today in History

What is this Valentine's Day that I keep hearing everyone talk about?

To Shady, February 14th is an important day because:

1817: Frederick Douglass' Birthday (read A Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave or Life and Times of Frederick Douglass if you haven't already - life-changing reads! Makes Shady want to be a better peanut.)
1920: League of Women Voters was established
1950: USSR and China sign peace treaty
1963: First successful kidney transplant
2008: Mets pitchers and catchers report for spring training

The best "love"-related quote today - Service is love in work clothes.

Go out there, nuts and pay it forward!
