To many, Memorial Day means the unofficial start to summer, a three-day weekend for grilling and a chance to break out white clothes that have been in the attic all winter. But the holiday is more than just beaches and barbecue. It’s a time to pay tribute to those who have died in military service to our country. Originally created after the Civil War to honor the fallen Union soldiers, Memorial Day has now evolved to commemorate every American soldier and service member. Here are the top 10 destinations to celebrate and honor America’s heroes.
It's not much of a conundrum, really. The bottom line is that most of the time, dogs will lick their people as a sign of affection. "You are the sun and the moon," their silky tongue would have you know. "And guess what? You taste good, too!"
But much as barking can be, licking is also a multi-faceted tool that seems to play many roles in canine behavior and, consequently, tends towards many different interpretations. Here's a list of the many ways in which we homo sapiens have come to understand this culturally alien mode of communication: Licking is a natural instinct in canids. When a mother licks her pups and her pups lick each other during the course of grooming and other social interactions, we're observing quintessential licking behavior in dogs. Indeed, this behavior is held up as one that may serve as the basis for all other licking decisions a dog makes. ("Mom licked me now I lick you ...")

Star Trek fans have been waiting anxiously to see exactly how the relationship between Spock and Uhura develops in the sequel.
But, if super-villain John Harrison has anything to do with it, the relationship is doomed to end in tragedy.
In a new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness, the antagonist, played by British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, narrates over a series of images that show the blossoming romance between Spock and Uhura.
Nyota Uhura, played by Zoe Saldana, must choose between her love for Spock, played by Zachary Quinto, and the good of her team.
The once secretive relations that Uhura and Spock had now appear to be common knowledge to all on the USS Enterprise.
The controversial couple can be seen in the new trailer sharing a tender kiss against a backdrop of danger and mayhem.
The black-haired woman nervously thumbed through her purse as she took the end seat at the blackjack table. She pulled out three $20 bills and gingerly placed them on the felt, confessing to the dealer this was her first time playing the game.
“No problem,” he assured her. This was a friendly table, he said, and he or the other players would be happy to help a novice. She put out the $10 minimum bet and was dealt a two-card 20 for her first hand. Her blackjack fling started with a victory.
“You know what you should do now?” the dealer asked, barely suppressing a smile as he prepared to deliver the punch line. “Run! Run for the hills while you're ahead!”
Many people making their first casino trip or trying out a new game are like that uneasy blackjack player. They want to gamble but they’re not exactly sure what to do.
Tattoos are an art as old as time. And, as with any cultural art form, there's a rich history behind all that ink — and some of it may really surprise you.
For example, did you know that European missionaries tried to remove tattoos by scrubbing the skin raw with sandstone? Or that one American man claims to be the only person legally allowed to tattoo copyrighted Disney characters into his skin? It's true.
Here's 10 other surprisingly fun facts about this colorful art form:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – America loves its outlaws, and few are as admired and lionized as Willie Nelson.
As the enduring American icon's 80th birthday has approached, he's been honored with lifetime achievement awards, serenaded at special performances and saluted by musicians from every genre of music. And Nelson has taken it all in with a bemused smile.
"It's a nice thing to do for someone on their birthday and I appreciate it," Nelson said in a recent interview aboard his bus. "Usually I like to forget my birthdays as much as possible."
The hubbub is as much about celebrating Nelson as it has been celebrating with Nelson.
FTA " Kylie Bisutti, a former model who won the Victoria's Secret Angel Search competition in 2009, does not have heavenly memories of her former employer.
In her new book "I'm No Angel," the 23-year-old claims she "felt like a piece of meat" working for Victoria's Secret and opted to trade in her lingerie for a quiet life in Montana.
In an excerpt obtained by the New York Post, Bisutti recalls laying on a bed in little clothing while a photographer encouraged her to pose more provocatively.
"That’s when it hit me. I was being paid to strip down and pose provocatively to titillate men. "

Virgin America has launched a new service that allows people the ability to send drinks, a meal or snack to fellow passengers that catch their eye.
The airline announced that the new feature uses the airline's existing Red on-demand food ordering system to send a cocktail to that passenger of interest. Just locate them on Virgin's digital seat map, browse the menu and have a drink, snack or meal sent over. You can even follow up with a text message.
Virgin launched the service to mark the start of its Los Angeles to Las Vegas service, but it's available on all of its U.S. flights.
Airlines are increasingly getting into the matching game. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines introduced a service called “meet and seat” that lets travelers link Facebook and LinkedIn profiles to their check-in information.
The Motion Picture Association of America announced changes Tuesday to its movie rating system, saying the group wants to better inform parents about violence in films.
The new system, called the "Check the Box" campaign, will include a more prominent and detailed description explaining why a movie received a particular rating. One example read, "An intense scene of war violence, some images of carnage, brief strong violence."
