Reminder -- Valentine's Day is a week from tomorrow. Dinner reservations should have already been made.

Former U.S. gymnast Kim Zmeskal celebrates her 43rd birthday today. She became famous as the athlete most often asked, "Is there a letter missing in your last name?"

Rick Astley hits birthday number 53 today. One thing about Rick, he's never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never gonna run around and desert you, never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye, never gonna tell a lie and hurt you. OK, technically, that's six things.

Axl Rose of Guns 'N Roses and, occasionally, AC/DC, turns 57 today.

They named Guns N' Roses after him, because Guns N' Axles didn't have the same ring to it.

Nothing says, "What? I can't hear you!" like a Guns N' Roses song.

If you're thinking about getting him a gift, how about an "e" for that first name?

Former teen heart throb Fabian turns 76. These days, he gets checked often for that heart throb. For goodness sake, Fabian, you're 76: get a last name!

Retired NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw turns 79 today.

Mike Farrell, who played B.J. Honeycutt on M*A*S*H, turns the big 8-0 today. He actually popped his head into a Yakima radio station I worked in back in 1970s when he was on a motorcycle trip.
