Weird scenes inside the gold mine

Yesterday I posted this apology.

(And it can't just be me)
We care all the time
(And that's the end of the rhyme!)

With thanks to surliminal, who provided the last two lines, and the original version of the two lines above that - "When the plain truth is (more ellipsis)"

I have to say I rather enjoyed not feeling the traditional Valentine's Day pressure, and just being able to relax - but I'm very happy for those of you who had a great Valentine's Day!
