Need a reason to get out the party hats, bake a cake and invite people over? Not to worry -- with a good reference book at your side, you can come up with meaningless milestones every day, just like the professionals in marketing and media.Take, for example, Elvis Presley. Is it possible to find a reason to write about him every year through 2000 A.D.? Is Graceland in Memphis?We were able to do this exercise in 10 minutes, without even referring to "The Ultimate Elvis: Elvis Presley Day By Day" (Simon & Schuster, $30)

Mothers are very important people. They give us hugs and kisses; they put Band-Aids on our wounds; they hide special notes in our lunch boxes. They're so special and important that they even get their own day. Today, my two brothers - Matthew and Jacob - and I will celebrate our mothers for Mother's Day. We'll plot how to surprise our moms and talk about what we should make for a special breakfast, then go do something fun with them. But this Mother's Day will be even more special than all of the others because we'll plan all our surprises knowing that soon after, on May 18 (one week before their 30th anniversary)

Edward C. Papenfuse, an Annapolis icon who has presided over the Maryland State Archives for almost 38 years, announced this week that he will retire as of Nov. 1. Papenfuse, a leading authority on Maryland history, announced his intentions at Monday's meeting of the state Hall of Records Commission. A decade into his tenure as state archivist and commissioner of land patents, the archives moved to the building it now occupies on Rowe Boulevard in Annapolis. In 2005, to commemorate Papenfuse's 30th anniversary in his job, the Board of Public Works named the building for him. A white-bearded man with a jovial manner, Papenfuse has long been a familiar figure at Maryland historical commemorations and other public events.

Isn't it about time we all stopped wallowing in the death of John F. Kennedy?The media can dress up all their specials this week as "celebrations" or "investigations," but to me they are just exploitations and titillations.They are just an excuse to drag out old clips of Marilyn Monroe singing "Happy Birthday" and the Zapruder film and John-John saluting.Monday will be the 30th anniversary of John Kennedy's death, and to that I say: So what? What is so special about a 30th anniversary?A 25th anniversary, OK, I will grant you a certain significance to a quarter of a century.

She probably could have done it years ago, but the timing seems perfect now. Singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of rock 'n' roll king Elvis Presley, has finally connected her musical skills with those of her legendary father. On "In the Ghetto," a "departed duet" in the vein of Natalie Cole's 1991 Grammy winner "Unforgettable," Presley adds her vocals to a slightly reconfigured version of Elvis' famed 1969 recording. The song and video were released this week to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Elvis' death, and all proceeds from the project will benefit a new Presley Place transitional housing campus in New Orleans, one of the late singer's favorite cities.

PHILADELPHIA -- They were again in close quarters, sharing popcorn and laughs rather than punches and nasty looks. Ali-Frazier IV was much different from I, II and III. This wasn't the Thrilla in Manila, but the most public detente between these two former world champion boxers and longtime arch-enemies. That it came in the City of Brotherly Love seemed a fitting way for Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier to finally put their 30-year feud behind them. "Absolutely," said Miya Ali, who sat behind her legendary father at courtside during yesterday's NBA All-Star Game at the First Union Center.
