Valentine's Day-Related Gifts Each State Googles More Frequently Than Other States


Valentine's Day is nearly upon us, which means millions of Americans are wondering what they will receive on this most romantic of days. It could be flowers or chocolates, or it could be something completely unexpected. Curiosity got the best of Estately, so we set out to find what Valentine's Day-related gifts people in each state Google more frequently than people in all other states. To do this we ran hundreds of possible gift-related search queries through Google Trends, which ranks how frequently people in each state search for each term online.

Hopefully this information is of some use, such as to help you determine where you might like to search for a home for sale (with Estately, of course), or what type of gift you should be on the lookout for on Valentine's Day. Either way, please remember this doesn't show what people in each state Googled the most, it's what search term or terms people in each state Googled more frequently than people in all other states.

Goodwill employee Lakeisha Williams was sorting through some donated books at a Stockton, Calif., collection site when she noticed an unexpected donation.

"There was an envelope full of cash," Williams told ABC NEWS.

The envelope had $10,500 in it in $100 bills. Williams joked that she briefly thought about pocketing the cash but knew she had to do the right thing.

"My concern was somebody was out that money, and I would have liked for them to get it back," she said.

She handed the cash over to a manager about a month ago, and the money had still not been claimed.

Goodwill Industries of San Joaquin Valley President David Miller said that it had not gone unnoticed that Williams "kindly and correctly" returned the money.

"What we did is we take the money … and put it into a holding account, and we wait usually a pretty good amount of time to see if somebody comes forward and identifies themselves and says they made a donation and a mistake," Miller told today.

Authorities were contacted in case anyone reported money missing, and the money will be held in the bank account for "no less than 120 days," he said.

"If nothing happens at that point … and all indicators are that nobody is claiming the money, at that point in time we put it into our normal donation stream revenue for our agency," Miller said. "We have a policy to reward our employees for their honesty and integrity. …"

The amount of money rewarded to the employee is up to Miller, but he said it would likely be in the range of 10 percent in this instance. This means Williams could be about $1,000 richer if no one comes forward to claim the missing money in the next three months.

CMT is pretty sure that something's going on between DUSTIN LYNCH and KELSEA BALLERINI, and they have some evidence to prove their case. Dustin posted a pic on Monday where she's about to kiss his cheek. He captioned it, "I'm calling dibs." Obviously, a reference to her song "Dibs".

She also told them last year that Dustin would be her pick for the "best snuggle buddy in country." And, they've noticed the two of them have a long history of Tweeting stuff back and forth.

If they are dating, then it's certainly on the down-low, because he's not willing to go there. talked to him at the Crash My Playa festival a couple of weeks ago. They asked if he has Valentine's Day plans, and he said, quote, "I don't really have a Valentine's Day date this year. I'm single. I suck at this whole dating thing."

The TV show Brain Games asked a simple question recently - can you figure out which way this school bus is headed?


The interesting thing is that 80% of children under the age of 10 could answer the question almost instantly, where adults found it to be a little harder!

Children are much better at taking in the first visual cue given and making a snap judgement based on that cue. Adults, on the other hand, take in different visual and other sensory cues before coming to a final judgement — making their decisions slower and perhaps more thought out

Got it figured out? Here's the ANSWER
