If this is your birthday, congratulations! You are celebrating today, with this country music musician. Alabama drummer Mark Herndon, born in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1955. He joins the Hall of Fame band in 1979, just prior to its launch into country's mainstream. Herndon is a live fixture with the group, though he rarely plays on its recordings.

This Is Eat What You Want Day! 


Today, forget the diet, and eat something you really enjoy.


Lot's of fried bacon would be a great start.
