My name is Carol. In real life, I'm a Registered Nurse, have worked 12 hour night shifts for many years. Ian's veins are "Nurse Porn'. I love old movies and I adore Cary Grant. He's my favorite. A young Cary sizzled then as Ian does now... Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Arsenic and Old Lace, Alfred Hitchcock movies as well as anything Cary Grant are my favorites. I have 4 children, 2 of each and every other so I'm very blessed. My youngest daughter sucked me into watching The Vampire Diaries with her. That single act stoked my love for Damon & Elena.

"You're a nurse? That's cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. How much do you make?"
Some of my favorite quotes are:
"If we're free to dare - and we are - If we're free to give - and we are - then we're free to shape the future and have within our grasp all we dream that future will be." President Ronald Reagan
"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives." Ronald Reagan
"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again." Ronald Reagan
"Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever." Walt Disney
"I don't measure a man's success by how high he climbs but by how high he bounces when he hits bottom." General George S. Patton

"Well, I did. Everyone of 'em. Mostly I remember the last one. The wow finish. A guy standing on a station platform in the rain with a comical look on his face because his insides have been kicked out." Rick Blaine in "Casablanca"
"The annals of war at sea present no more intense, heart shaking shock than these two battles, in which the quality of the United States Navy and Air Force and the American race shone forth in splendor... The bravery and self devotion of the American airmen and sailors and the nerve and skill of their leaders was the foundation of all." Winston Churchill on the battle of Coral Sea May 4-8, 1942 and Midway Island June 4-7, 1942
Winston Churchill, "The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we're spirits—not animals. There's something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty."
Ronald Reagan, "You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin—just in the face of this enemy? Or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard 'round the world? The martyrs of history were not fools, and our honored dead who gave their lives to stop the advance of the Nazis didn't die in vain. Where, then, is the road to peace?"
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Einstein

“You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.”
"But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever." John Adams
'Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." Winston Churchill.
'Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.' Ronald Reagan
"My fellow citizens, our nation is poised for greatness. We must do what we know is right, and do it with all our might. Let history say of us: 'These were golden years -- when the American Revolution was reborn, when freedom gained new life, and America reached for her best.'"
