Date Idea: Outdoor Theater

Mountain Theater Originally uploaded by kimretta . Summer is a great time of year for entertainment. One thing we really like doing is attending outdoor plays and concerts.

The Meaning of Love

Love!! Originally uploaded by fanz . Love is one of those interesting words in English. It has so many meanings. Consider the following: * I am in love with my wife * I love my children * I love my dog * I love pizza * I love this hotel room * I love autumn * The score was 20-love Obviously I don't love my wife in the same way I love pizza. Yet, we use the same word to express the deep abiding passion that exists between husband and wife as we use to express the flavor of some food. Looking in the dictionary, there are over 17 different meanings to the word love. I can be a noun or a verb, active or passive. There are two separate phrases involving love to consider.
