President Bush took a lunchtime birthday jog today "to show that 65 can still do three miles." The temperature was 77, the humidity was 60% and Bush's T-shirt was soaked with presidential sweat by the time he finished his jog at Ft. McNair, an Army base in southwest Washington. "I wanted to show that 65 can still do three miles," Bush huffed. He reached into his limousine for a plastic bag containing ice and cans of orange soda, tossed a soda to an aide and had one himself.

Burbank city officials and historians are eagerly awaiting the celebration of the city's birthday. But they can't agree on how many candles to put on the cake.

If you're reading this, you survived early October's shake 'n' bake, for which I rejoice. There is much speculation among the seismologists about when The Big One will be, for which last week was just a run-through. I wish they'd ask me. The men in my family are causing the earthquakes, at least the 1971 shake and a week ago Thursday's. The 1971 quake happened a couple of minutes before 6 a.m. on Feb. 9, my son Timothy's birthday. The recent one was Oct. 1, my husband Doug's birthday.

When Hala Masaad invited her girlfriends over to celebrate her 18th birthday with cake and juice, the high school student was stepping into an unusual public debate. Is celebrating birthdays un-Islamic? Saudi Arabia's most senior Muslim cleric recently denounced birthday parties as an unwanted foreign influence, but another prominent cleric declared they were OK. That has left Masaad with mixed feelings about her low-key celebration last month. She loves birthday parties, she says, because they make her feel that she has "moved from one stage of life to another."

Ask Huldah Hunter about her health, and the soon-to-be 101-year-old changes the topic at the drop of a hat. Instead she'll inquire about your grandchildren, or say, "Would you like a piece of my birthday candy?" The Westminster resident, born July 31, 1899, was the main attraction Thursday at a senior center luncheon party celebrating July birthdays. But sure enough, whenever fellow celebrants stopped by to chat, Hunter instantly diverted the attention from herself.

One of Edwin Jackson's teammates jokingly insisted the 20-year-old pitcher had hired a screenwriter to script his meteoric rise with the Dodgers. The opening act definitely indicated blockbuster potential as Jackson shined in his major league debut Tuesday night -- a 4-1 Dodger victory over the reeling Arizona Diamondbacks at Bank One Ballpark. The highly touted right-hander delivered a show-stopping performance before 36,488, working six strong innings while filling in for injured Hideo Nomo.

Christie Brinkley seems to be defying the laws of aging and broadcasting it as she gears up for her 60th -- yes, 60th -- birthday on Sunday. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model flaunts what she's got on the latest cover of People , posing in a teal swimsuit for the mag. "Christie at 60! All her stay-young secrets" the headline reads, and the va-va-voom factor she brings to the glossy surely does the mag a few favors.

Sure, it was Mariah Carey's birthday this week - strike that, her "anniversary" - but she was the one doling out a present to fans: a shot of herself without makeup and looking lovely.

The only things missing when Los Angeles' top air artists get together are inflated egos. There's something resembling Betty Boop standing in the corner. Pluto, the cartoon dog, is sitting on the floor. A tiny ladybug rests on a hand. There's a birthday cake, a Viking headdress, a witch's hat and broom, an octopus, Casper the ghost. All made of twisted-together balloons. "We're standing on the shoulder of giants," says Eddie Medrano, one of the balloon blowers. "Look at that guy over there.

After reading Baker's article I have nothing but scorn, disgust and unbridled hate for all draft dodgers. How dare these young men reap the benefits of this nation while having committed acts of cowardice and treason? It turns my stomach! Good men, brave men have fought over 200 years to keep our nation free, and while I'll admit America is not perfect, it is still the finest country on Earth. The United States offers much to its citizens and asks only loyalty in return. These subhuman creatures should be shot for their crimes against our society as a testament to all those who would desert this nation.
