If this is your birthday, congratulations! Two names in country music are also turning a year older as well.

Joe Diffie, born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1958. Emerging in 1990, he melds traditional country with borderline-novelties to create a string of hits that includes "Ships That Don't Come In," "Honky Tonk Attitude" and "Third Rock From The Sun".

This day arrives at just the perfect time of year. The Christmas hustle and bustle is over. The kids are getting bored of their new toys. It's time to turn to card games for a calmer, relaxing, and more slow-paced form of fun and entertainment.

Beware, there are a few serious gambling types among us, who view cards a serious "business". To most of us, though,  card games are just ....games.

Why not, Spend the day playing cards with family and friends. If you have kids, make sure to play some age appropriate card games with them. You'll find its quality time with the kids that will  create many warm memories.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
