Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t’aime davantage,
Aujourd’hui plus qu’hier et bien moins que demain.

BONUS CROCHET PATTERNS (Sorry; not theme-related):

Susan Pinner's Magical Flower Motif - "You have to see this pattern to believe it! The best part about the Magical Flower Motif is that it can be paired with the Mini Gemstone Octagons to create a gorgeous afghan that fits together like a puzzle. This flower crochet pattern starts as an octagon and then the flower petals are added to the octagon pattern. Make a wonderful flowery and geometric pattern with this amazing pattern."

Brittany McKelvie's Enchanted Orchid Cowl - "The pretty pastel color of this Enchanted Orchid Cowl makes it a great pattern to make for spring. This free crochet scarf pattern is quick and easy to make, so get started right now and you'll be done before you know it. Treat yourself to this trendy fashion item, or make one for a friend. It's a great item to add to anyone's wardrobe because it can be worn year-round as a stylish accessory."

Pamela Grennes' Magical Pillowghan - "At first glance, this Magical Pillowghan doesn't look like anything more than a crocheted pillow. But if you take a closer look, you'll discover the magic behind this free crochet pattern: the blanket is actually folded up and turned into a pillow when not in use. Pretty neat, huh? This is a great gift idea for new homeowners or new neighbors, but be sure to make one for yourself too so you can enjoy the allure of this Magical Pillowghan.:

From - 03/24/14:

Three men were shipwrecked on a desert island and were captured by the local natives.

They were brought to the chief native. The chief gave the men two choices: they could have death or submit to Unga Bunga.

The first man decided he didn't want to die, so he chose Unga Bunga.

Ten of the natives took him into the woods; when he came back one hour later he was all beaten up.

The second man chose Unga Bunga and he was taken out into the woods for 2 hours where the natives beat him up.

The third man, not wanting to go through all that torture, decided upon death.

So the chief said, "Okay - death by Unga Bunga."
