    The word "CUPID"...

    Meaning: 1. (Cupid) The Roman god of love. 2. (cupid) A representation
    of Cupid as a naked cherubic boy usually having wings and holding
    a bow and arrow, used as a symbol of romantic love.

    Word History: Today's Good Word, like so many others, comes to
    us from Latin: 'Cupid' was the Roman god of love (Eros in Greek
    mythology). The name is based on cupido "desire" from the verb
    cupere "to desire". The noun cupidity "greed, avarice" comes
    from the same source. Romance, of course, is a special case of
    strong desire. According to Roman mythology, Cupid was the son
    of Mercury, the messenger god with the wings on his ankles, and
    Venus, the goddess of love. Psyche had such a radiant beauty
    that it rivaled that of Venus, so Romans were deserting Venus
    to worship her. This angered Venus so she asked Cupid to cast
    a spell on Psyche that would make her fall in love with the most
    loathsome creature on Earth. Cupid, however, filled with desire
    for Psyche himself, had her spirited away to a magnificent palace
    where he visited her every night.

    Cupid's bow is a bow for shooting arrows that curves inward
    in the middle and usually outward at the ends. Cupid's arrows,
    however, are the delicious pangs of love and St. Valentine's
    Day is the day to look out for the little cherub.


    Wishing all Spoofee members a very happy, and, loving St. Valentine's Day!

    That was very interesting Rags - thanks for sharing!

    Happy Valentine's Day!

    Here is a tip for you: if your roses come without flower food, put them in a can of soda (7-up, Sprite) and they will last longer.

    I once had a bouquet of roses last 2 weeks because I used a cans of Sprite instead of water (you change it just like you would the water) They also bloomed all the way!

    WOW KM thank you for that tip! We are heading up to the Philadelphia Flower show in about three weeks, and, they have a buy of three dozen of roses for like twelve bucks! Such beautiful colors too, hard to choose every year! I can't seem to get them to last past about a week! Believe me, I am going to try the soda trick this year!!
