Considering the age and condition of the [negatives] I think you have all done a marvellous job
With Valentine's Day almost upon us it's time we started thinking about what to do to show that special person in our life how much they mean to us. Those in new relationships will want to make a good impression and show their romantic side, whilst those who have been together for a long time may need to think of different ways to declare their love.
As we begin to see the shops fill up with cards, flowers, teddy bears and other heart-filled merchandise, the pressure to give a special and unique gift increases. Finding new ways to show our love for someone is not as difficult as it seems. Even if you are not particularly creative, there are little things that can be done to make the most romantic day of the year extra special. After all, it's the little things that count.
A good card is essential and most of us spend hours scouring the shops looking for the one that says how we feel in the best possible way. It is a good idea to choose a card that reflects your relationship; some couples are more lighthearted in their approach to romance, in which case a Valentine card with a touch of humour is a great option. Those true romantics, who like to freely express their feelings, choose a card with a love poem or sentimental verse.
When it comes to presents, it is crucial that we select a gift that is personal to our loved one. If we are opting for the traditional flowers or chocolates, we must ensure they are his or her favourite. If taking them out for a meal, book their favourite restaurant or cuisine. Showing that we understand and care about what our partner likes is a guaranteed way to have a successful day.
Another great gesture of romance is to reminisce on good times together. The problem with this is that many of us aren't very good with words and nerves can sometimes get the better of us. That's where our precious photo collections come in. As they say, a picture says a thousand words, and by making a collection of a dream holiday, a special event or even a recap of the years spent together, we can gift a truly unique gift. Whether it is a simple photo collage or an entire photo book, this is a sure way to portray our love for someone.
For many of us, trawling through years of photos seems too much like hard work. However, we need not fear as help is at hand. A photo scanning service allows people to simply send off an entire photo collection, which is then scanned and stored electronically. This then makes it easier to quickly flick through each picture and select the ones to use to make not only a personalised present, but also a true declaration of love, combined with happy memories that we can treasure forever.

I first came across box-sizing: border-box when it cropped up in a temporary colleague's CSS. I found it pretty annoying when I picked up work that he'd started as it seemed to get in the way. This was because, as I said in a previous post on margin ...
