News: Happy Holidays to everyone on the forum! It's been another great year of topics. 2018 will be a great year. The other Admin, Jon is supposed to be coming up to Connecticut this coming spring or summer to meet up with me. Mayhem will sure to follow us. LOL. Gonna visit the still vacant AMES HQ in Rocky Hill, the last vacant AMES in Connecticut located in Seymour, and going to hit up one of the 3 remaining K-MARTS in Connecticut. As a side trip we're probably going to hit Northern Mass and meet up with Chris the founder of the AMES Fan Club. ~ Brammy. New Email brammy82@mail.com

This is like a whole second Valentines Day that occurs in October.
It is basically only celebrated in Ohio and Michigan.

It started as a promotional stunt by a candy company in Cleveland in the 1920's.
They put a full-court press on in the media to create a day for you to buy your
"sweetest" a box of chocolate.   

Growing up in Pittsburgh I had never even heard of this, but when I got to
Michigan I learned it was a VERY big deal.  Married a gal from Michigan and
ended up on the hook for this AND Valentines Day every year.
