CYNICAL singleton that I am, who enjoyed the commercialised nonsense that is Valentine's Day?

I have to admit to chuckling upon passing a card shop late last Thursday and seeing a queue of blokes, arms laden with cards and all manner of 'lurve' items - teddies, chocolates, love heart balloons and the like.

Naturally, the traditional gift to give is, of course, red roses.

And that's where our local radio station Hertbeat FM gave a helping hand.

Their roving man on the street, Cookie, was out in WGC that morning handing out single red roses to some lucky ladies.

Sticking with the love theme, he dressed up as Cupid. Although judging by this picture, below, a word that rhymes with that would be more appropriate!
