This may be a bit elementary, but I hope not; using the letters in the word VALENTINES, let's see how many new words we can come up with. One word per post, OK? And let's try not to have multiples of the same word. Me first.
Oh yes, you can only use the exact number of letters found in VALENTINE. For instance the letter "e" is found twice so you may use that letter twice in your new word if you need it. Same goes for the letter "n". I hope that's clear.
