BIG SHOT BIRTHDAYS _ William Shatner (Star Trek, Boston Legal) is 82; sportscaster Bob Costas is 61; Reese Witherspoon (Water for Elephants, This Means War, Oscar for Walk the Line) is 37
GOOF OFF! _ Today (Friday) is Goof Off Day. Funny how it comes on a Friday during the NCAA men's basketball tournament.
U.S. GOVERNMENT WARNS OF FAKE EMAILS _ The U.S. government on Thursday warned computer users to beware of fake emails they may receive from hackers claiming to be from the Department of Homeland Security and demanding money to reinstate use of their computer. Homeland Security's U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team, or US-CERT, published an alert on its website warning it had received reports of the "ransomware."
A $1,000 EASTER EGG _ If Peeps and Cadbury Creme Eggs are too low rent for your Easter-candy-loving-tastebuds, get them -- and your wallet -- to New York's Upper West Side and the bakery called Sugar & Plumm. It's created a $1,000 chocolate egg with dark, milk and white chocolates along with marzipan flowers, ladybugs, and what look like Angry Birds. A grand ain't peep, uh, cheap, but the egg does weigh 22-pounds and stands 3-feet-tall.
