The secret to everlasting true love...

My side-project 1920's jazz duo, GRAND HOTEL, played a Valentine's Day party at The French Legation Museum. One couple there had been married for 37 years and another for 43 years. I asked them what the secret was.

The first couple replied: "Wine."

The second couple replied: "Lots of wine."
