TODAY IS

It's March! Bring on St. Patrick's Day, March Madness and the first day of Spring! I'll do my taxes later. Plan carefully what you're giving up for Lent this year, as St. Patrick's Day is on a Friday.


Justin Bieber is 23 today. Doesn't it seem like he should be 40? Instead of blowing out the candles on his cake, he throws eggs at them.


Kei$ha turns the big 3-0 today. She's still got that dollar sign in her name. Years ago, she dropped her last night, which did include the cents.


Tim Daly turns 61 today. He's been dating his "Madam Secretary" co-star Tea Leoni for over a year now.


Director Ron Howard turns 63. Oh, wait a minute. Bryce Dallas Howard's dad turns 63. There are those of us who remember him as Opie on "The Andy Griffith Show."


Roger Daltry, lead singer for the Who, turns 73 today. For the younger listener, The Who is the group that does the theme song for all those CSI shows.


Harry Bellafonte turns the big 9-0 today... is a day... is a day-ay-ay-o.


Peanut Lover's Day -- the average child will eat 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before he or she graduates high school. Peanut butter has been popular since the early 1900s, but no one knows who invented it. Today, it is an $800 million industry dominated by household names such as Jif, Skippy, and Peter Pan.


The average American eats 3.36 pounds of peanut butter each year and that's a good thing because it can help you lose weight. Wait a minute, that can't be right can it? A high-calorie, starchy sandwich spread can help us lose weight? Yes, it can. That's the not-so-nutty word from researchers at Purdue University is that peanuts and peanut products cut the appetite. "The high protein and fiber content in peanuts may play an important role in curbing hunger and thereby not promoting weight gain," says Dr. Richard Mattes.
