Staying home and making Valentine’s cards together is one way for families to do this. You can then have someone in the household drop off the cards to your loved ones, if they’re close by, mail them if your loved ones are far away, or send them online yourself.The other tips on the list include taking a walk with your Valentine, celebrating with your special someone virtually, preparing a special meal or dessert, or planning a special movie or game night.It’s alright to have a picnic outside, the CDC said, but just make sure you have your masks on most of the time, and that you’re socially distanced from others who may be enjoying a picnic themselves in the same area.Remember that if you plan to celebrate with people who don’t live with you, outdoors is safer than indoors, according to the CDC.Indoors, you should avoid crowded, poorly ventilated spaces. These places don’t usually offer fresh air from the outdoors. If indoors, you can bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors, if possible. Using a window fan in one of the open windows to blow air out is recommended. This will also pull fresh air in through the other open windows.If you really must host a Valentine’s event where you’re expecting guests, the CDC lists some of the things you should bear in mind: if you’re sick or you have been near someone who thinks they may have or have been exposed to COVID-19, cancel the gathering.During the event, if it does push through, provide single-use options such as salad dressing and condiment packets, and disposable plates, cups and utensils. Limit the number of guests to your event, and prepare extra unused masks for your guests. Even before you start, remind everyone to wear their masks inside and outside.Remember also to clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and items between use. You may have to have your cleaning gloves ready at all times, because the CDC recommends cleaning dirty surfaces with soap and water first, then using disinfectant. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a list of disinfectants that are recommended for coronavirus. You can check out the list here.Because you’re celebrating, there will be food and drinks in the house or in your yard, so make sure your cleaning tools and your disinfectant do not mix with the food.In any case, hosting a virtual gathering with friends and family is always the better option. You can also walk or drive or around your community to wave to neighbors and greet them from a safe distance. If you’re taking food, your Valentine’s cards, or gifts to family, friends, and neighbors, do it in a way that doesn’t involve contact, such as leaving them at the door.They’ll understand that these are unusual times, and that it’s better to be safe than sorry.For more of the CDC’s tips for celebrating, visit www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays/winter.html.

Broadway legend Patti LuPone guest stars on this week’s Penny Dreadful, and we have never been more scared. In the flashback episode, the two-time Tony winner plays The Cut-Wife, a cottage recluse who helps Vanessa (played by Eva Green) control her special abilities. Spoiler: the lesson involves Patti LuPone slapping the crap out of her (it’s a big week for that). Take a look at the clip below, and catch Penny Dreadful on Showtime on May 17. We can only hope that LuPone will lighten up in Lincoln Center’s Shows for Days next month. Show Closed This production ended its run on Aug. 23, 2015 Shows For Days View Comments Related Shows

One of the downstairs living areas.Neighbours introduced themselves and congratulated the new owners, and Mr Parker told The Courier-Mail all parties were pleased with the result.“The sellers are very happy and the buyers are over the moon as well,” he said.“We actually auctioned the buyers’ property last year.”Mr Parker said potential buyers had been drawn to the location, as the house was on a 556sq m corner block across from Oriel Park, as well as the low-maintenance style of the home. The expansive master bedroom had a beautiful bay window.Not long after Ray White auctioneer Philip Parker invited opening bids, a gentleman kicked the auction off with a strong $1 million offer.However, it quickly got away from him, with bids of $100,000 flying back and forth to $1.4 million, before breaking down further to $50,000, $25,000 and $5000 bids. The house at 23 Wren St, Ascot, sold under the hammer for $1.715 million.Heads snapped from side to side as onlookers tried to keep up with who was bidding at a rapid-fire Ascot auction yesterday.A crowd of about 30 gathered in the shaded yard of 23 Wren St about 10am Saturday morning, as five registered bidders battled for the five-bedroom character home. The ensuite has a classically styled soaker bath.In a matter of minutes, hearts were in the throats of bystanders and bidding stalled at $1.705 million.After a short pause in the auction as Mr Parker and marketing agent David Treloar conferred with the vendors and the bidders, the property was announced on the market at $1.71 million, a bid that was held by a couple.One last spurt of $1000 bids in a desperate attempt to secure the property proved futile for another bidder, as the gavel was dropped on a bid of $1.715 million to the couple.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours ago The kitchen and a living room flow into the dining room and then outside.Polished timber floorboards flowed through the abode, with VJ walls upstairs, but a bedroom being used as an office is one of the most breathtaking areas of the house.It had rich brown panelled timber walls, and a coffered ceiling, with a look you would expect of a Harvard law professor’s home office.
