I'm guessing Jimmy Buffett really celebrates his birthday. Today is number 63.

Scottish singer Annie Lennox turns 55 today.

Today also marks a birthday for Ken of Field of Cards. Ken's blog is new to the blogosphere but I predict great success ahead. Ken likes baseball, baseball sim games, baseball books, baseball cards, baseball documentaries and baseball blogs. (And they say there are no renaissance men left!) He lives somewhere in the Northwest (hiding?) but is a HUGE Baltimore Orioles fan. Happy Birthday Ken, wherever you are. <;)
