We don't get mushy at our house, but some of you folks may still go in for that kind of thing especially this close to Valentine's Day. I adore the Farmer's Almanac, and its homey, old fashioned, wit and lore. Here's one that I had to share with my sista's!

In 1989, The US Food and Drug Administration banned advertisers from promoting pills or potions because testing had shown that none worked no matter what the contents—whether fennel or dried beetle bodies.
Any that appeared to work did so only because the user believed they would—the stimulant lay only in the users' mind. In other words, it's the imagination that creates its own exciting possibilities and the body that leaps forward to fulfill the fantasies.
The Last Stimulant You'll Ever Need
Love is the most magnificent of aphrodisiacs. Although it is certainly no more easier to get a hold of than some of these potions, it's a heck of a lot cheaper and more environmentally friendly.
Before you spend money on the goods, spend the time on your partner. Otherwise nothing will work!
