Step into any card shop or drugstore, and you won't be able to avoid the rows of heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, the miles of red and pink cards and the many soft and cuddly stuffed animals smiling back at you.

IT MAY TAKE MORE time to plan a romantic dinner for two at home than to make dinner reservations at a fancy restaurant, but there are many advantages. There is something quite wonderful about cooking a special meal for the one you love and enjoying it together. No traffic, no parking, plus both you and your valentine can enjoy as much wine as you like, then move right onto the after-dinner festivities in the comfort of your own home. But this will only work if you are organized. You want to be relaxed, not stressed, on the big night.

Evidence of February's abduction was everywhere: Drivers became reacquainted with the colors of their vehicles; construction workers toiled in shirtsleeves; children played in parks unburdened from three layers of coats.

Crazy Heart . ( 3 STARS) There's a powerful symmetry at work in "Crazy Heart" that's impossible to resist.

I wonder why?"Unsolved Mysteries" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- "UM" wishes everyone a Happy Valentine's Day by looking at a bunch of alleged aphrodisiacs, seeking answers to the burning question of whether such foods as chocolate, honey and oysters can affect one's sex drive. Plus, is it really possible that an asteroid could crash into the Earth, ending life as we know it? (What a stroke of luck NBC has this show to air just two days before its ratings-month blockbuster, "Asteroid," dramatizes that very possibility!
