    I'm putting together a roundup article. Who wants to help me out?

    Answer the below two questions, please, and I'll add your responses to my article.


    What is your favorite Valentine’s Day tradition?



    How are you celebrating Valentine’s Day in the office?

    This year while my daughter and her husband go out for dinner, my wife and I are taking my granddaughter out to a restaurant in Cape May.

    My suggestion for the office this year in light of what's been going on, is to make a donation to the American Heart Association for each patient seen on Valentine's Day.

    I like your donation idea, Richard. Are you actually doing that?

    Valentines Day! Really do we need the day to express love and affection. Do your story Gretchyn and hope it's better than what MSN puts out.

    Yes! Just sent an email to other ODs I consult for advising them of the idea.

    You forget that Heart Attacks and I are no stranger!
