Nicholas Sparks. That name alone makes women of all ages swoon just a little bit over the man who single-handedly transformed the simple love story into today's modern classics.
I throw myself into that same category of women and have been fortunate enough to have read every major book he has written and published (except for his latest, "The Best of Me"--I just got it for Christmas and I'm still trying to recover!).

Iâ€™m a guy in his late 40s, educated, ok to look at and have a lot to offer a great girl. I put a profile up on a dating site and hereâ€™s my issue. Why are girls so rude? They want respect but wonâ€™t return e-mails. I take the time to write thoughtful messages and either get the â€śno thanks, not interestedâ€ť mail, or nothing at all. Why donâ€™t they give the same respect back to us? I think a large percentage (over 90%) just want to e-mail and pass time.

The Veterans Day National Ceremony is held each year on Nov. 11, at Arlington National Cemetery. The ceremony commences precisely at 11 a.m. with a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknowns and continues inside the Memorial Amphitheater with a parade of colors by veterans' organizations and remarks from dignitaries. The ceremony is intended to honor and thank all who served in the United States Armed Forces.
