If it's your birthday today, congratulations!  You share this date with artist and record producer, T Bone Burnett  born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1948. An artist in his own right, he produces Robert Plant & Alison Krauss' "Raising Sand" album, the soundtracks to movies "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and "Crazy Heart," and the music of ABC-TV's "Nashville".  Happy 67th, T Bone.    

It's National Dress Up Your Pet Day!!

from Jun Xiao

Let's face it, pets are a part of ones family and this day should be special for them.

Some pets enjoy getting dressed up, others not so much.  Today you have the opportunity to really dress up your pet.  You can make something for them to wear or visit a pet store and buy an outfit.  Remember, it's winter so something warm is probably best.

Always remember to keep your pets safe and comfortable in their clothing and costumes that you choose.

Dressing up your pet birds or goldfish could be a problem.
