If you have a birthday today, congratulations! You share this date with two country music artists.  Guitarist Rachel Reinert  born in Sarasota, Florida, in 1989. She makes her Grand Ole Opry debut days before her 20th birthday as a member of Gloriana, a harmony act that earns hits with 2009's "Wild At Heart" and 2011's "(Kissed You) Good Night".  Happy 26th, Rachel. Also celebrating today, Carrie Underwood  born in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in 1983. Her 2005 participation in "American Idol" is a prologue to a career marked by soaring performances, platinum albums and a ream of Female Vocalist honors. Happy 32nd, Carrie!

This Is Middle Name Pride Day!

Sergey Borisov

Today we honor that seldom used middle name that sets you apart from others.  After all, it was selected with care so you should be proud of it.

It's that middle name that your parents gave you which makes your name unique.  The middle name is often selected to honor a friend or relative.  Any idea why you were given your middle name?  Today is great day to find out.

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