i'll remember that when we're licking greasy Popeye's off our fingers and making fun of the (admittedly adorable) Bode Miller who can't seem to ski straight and laughing at the figure skaters who fall down.

(though that Chinese couple were pretty ballsy last night, weren't they?)

Student sends roses to 500 classmates

February 15, 2006

WESTON, Fla. --If any female juniors at Cypress Bay High School weren't aware of classmate Paul Kim -- they know him now.

The 17-year-old junior ordered 500 red roses and had them delivered to nearly all his female classmates on Valentine's Day.

A card attached to the roses said, "To all the lovely ladies of 2007, here's wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day. Affectionately, Paul Kim."

He said he used money he had been saving since his birthday in December to pay for the roses, which cost about $900.

"To me, Valentine's is a special day," Kim said. "I realized that not many girls would get anything and it would be an ordinary day. I figured I'd take the initiative and put a smile on their face."

Sara Farinelli, 16, got her rose during her math class.

"I don't know who this kid is, but he's sending everyone a rose," Farinelli said. "I think it's a cute gesture."

Kim's estimate on the class size was slightly off. There are more than 600 girls in Cypress Bay's junior class.

He said he got the idea Friday, when he saw the Business Professionals of America club was having trouble selling flowers as a fundraiser.

I got her a number of small items that I knew she would like. Actuually, I enlisted the help of my 5-year old daughter. We have an ongoing date night each Friday. So, after we had some dinner, I would ask her to help me find things for Mom.

Let's just say that our relationship is strong if I can get her an oven mitt for Valentine's Day.

(ok, it was pink, heart shaped, and she thought it was cute).

Still in Love After 77 Valentine's Days

Tue Feb 14, 10:13 PM ET

Fred Landis has a Valentine's Day ritual. Sometime, somewhere, he'll lean over to his wife, Gwen, and say, "I love you." They say he's been doing that on Valentine's Days since 1928, when they were married.

In October, Fred, 102, and Gwen, 101, celebrated their 77th wedding anniversary, and they are not far shy of a record. The longest current marriage, according to the 2006 edition of Guinness World Records, is 78 years, 296 days.

On Valentine's Day 2006, Fred will say "I love you" a bit louder than he used to because Gwen is hard of hearing. Fred has macular degeneration, which has kept him from writing poetry for her.

Gwen says Fred wrote poems to her during their courtship, a gesture that may have won her heart.

"I think that had something to do with it," she said with a shy smile.

They met in 1924 as college students, he at Albany College and she at Simpson Bible College in Seattle. Fred attended a church where Gwen's father was the pastor. When they were married, Gwen's father performed the ceremony.

Gwen remembers receiving $800 for a wedding gift, then losing it all in the stock-market crash the following year.

The Landises spent the next four decades working in ministry and raising four children. Fred was the pastor at several small churches in the Northwest. Gwen played the piano and organ and taught Sunday school.

He retired in 1970, and they have lived in Salem since then. They moved to a retirement center in 1994.

"They're just wonderful people. You couldn't find any better," says a friend, Dorothea McAuley. "They're setting an example for everybody. They're always happy. I've never seen one of them angry. They're God's example."

Commitment is the word Gwen uses to describe their marriage success. Fred agrees.

"Sure, we've had squabbles and disagreements galore," he said. "But there's a commitment to marriage because we have a reverence to it."

They have eight grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.

Son John, 67, says he continues to be amazed by his parents, their relationship and their lives.

"I think — I know — they would not have lived this long singly," John says. "They keep each other going."
