Q: Sir Charles, got any ideas what to get my husband for Valentine's Day? - Out of Ideas in Pennsauken A: Sweetie, if you have to ask a complete stranger what to get your man, you have some serious problems. Guys are easy. You can get us anything, except maybe flowers. Aside from the obvious choices like candy or liquor or one master remote control that can do everything, maybe you should consider something sentimental. Like, where did you go on your first date? Maybe you can take him back there if possible.

TAMPA, Fla. - A parade down Broad Street will be a pipe dream if the Flyers' parade to the penalty box perpetuates. The Flyers, far and away the NHL's least disciplined team, found out the hard way with a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of a potent Lightning attack on Sunday night at Tampa Bay Times Forum. Penalties were bound to catch up with them at some point. Tampa Bay scored three times - twice on the power play - in a span of 4:21 in the first period to erase a 1-0 lead Sean Couturier built for the Flyers in the opening minute.

DOVER, Del. - A paper found in a box of old books sold at auction is being hailed as a treasure of Delaware history. History buff and author Robert Barnes, who found the quill-written letter in crumbling pieces held together with adhesive tape, knew it was special when he spotted the unmistakable signature of John Hancock. Dated Dec. 30, 1776, and written from Baltimore, the letter beseeched the Delaware General Assembly "in the most urgent manner" to send soldiers and supplies to Gen. George Washington's headquarters before what became known as the Battle of Princeton.

OF ALL of Damon Feldman 's cockamamie stunts, the one in which he and Octomom got engaged was the most ridiculous. Now the Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter is suing Octomom, a/k/a Nadya Suleman , in Delaware County. The pair are due in court Wednesday in Broomall. Feldman seeks his ring, which belonged to his ex-wife, or $7,500. He alleges that Suleman was supposed to return the ring after wearing it for a month to garner publicity for their fake engagement, but that she never did. He "proposed" to Suleman in February, during a promotional appearance in Woodlyn, Delaware County.
