A Valentine’s Day Dinner Party You Have to See to Believe

Timothy Corrigan's Paris Flat

For regular readers, Timothy Corrigan needs no introduction. Our behind-the-scenes look into a holiday dinner party at his French chateau years ago is still buzzed about; his springtime al fresco lunch gave us total landscaping envy; and his casually elegant Easter brunch gave us a first glimpse into Timothy’s West Coast home. Oh, and as unofficial president of the Timothy Corrigan fan club, I even went so far as to get married at his Loire Valley property last year… now that’s dedication. I’ve always known that Timothy and I were kindred spirits, but today’s story makes it official. There’s no holiday that I love more than Valentine’s Day, and it turns out that our favorite francophile interior designer feels the same way. How’s he celebrating this year? The only way he knows: with close friends around a beautifully set formal dining table, his newly renovated Paris flat a most amorous setting. Ready for some jaw-dropping inspiration?

Favorite Valentine's Day Movies | Breakfast at Tiffany's

If Valentine’s Day really was invented solely to torture single people, one might argue that the entire romantic comedy genre is intended to see them through.

We put our heads together to come up with our all time favorite Valentine’s Day flicks — movies that make us laugh, feel good, and renew our hope in love.

On This Day in Football: Cologne gets a new club

On This Day in Football: Cologne gets a new club – originally posted on Sportslens.com

On this day in 1948, German Bundesliga club FC Koln were formed.

But the foundation of Koln was successful after the merger of different clubs. In 1901, a group of young men dissatisfied with a gymnastics club called FC Borussia Koln decided to form a football club and named it Kolner BC. They played professionally in the Zehnerliga West prior to the start of the First World and even won the Westdeutsche Championship in 1912.

In 1907, Spielvereinigung 1907 Koln-Sulz was established as Sulzer Sportverein and merged with Fußball Club 1908 Hertha Sulz to form SpVgg in 1919. This club won the Westdeutsche Championship in 1928.  Five years later, the Third Reich oversaw the establishment of 16 divisional league competitions as part of a major reshuffle of German football. FC Koln’s predecessors played in the Gauliga Mittelrhein, one of the 16 leagues.

FC Koln was established in 1948 after a merger of these clubs and won their first divisional championship in 1954. They also reached the final of the DFB Pokal that season but lost 1-0 to Stuttgart. In 1963, they were one of the original 16 teams to play in the newly formed German Bundesliga. Koln were also the inaugural champions in the 1963-64 season by finishing six points above second placed Meidericher SV.

Fast food workers mark fiftieth anniversary of Memphis sanitation strike with day of action

February 12 is the fiftieth anniversary of the Memphis sanitation workers strike, and to mark the occasion, thousands of fast food workers across the country walked off the job. In Memphis itself:

Seeing the rally nearby, 28-year-old Burger King employee Robin Curtis said she made a split-second decision to walk out on her job of about six months, telling her manager, “Time for a change.”

“To make a change, if I have to quit, I will,” said Curtis, who is working multiple jobs as she raised two children in South Memphis.

In Kansas City:

Bridget Hughes, a local mom of three, has worked in fast-food for 10 years. She spoke at the rally.

“Low wage workers today here in Kansas City and across the nation are carrying on the tradition of Dr. King and the sanitation workers. Every day, working people are overcoming our divisions and organizing together to win better for all of us. We know that McDonald’s and these billion-dollar companies are trying to rig the political and economic system against us. Are we going to let them do that? If we are going to win, we must use our strength in numbers and come together as one people.”
