How to Remember Birthdays

Are you good at remembering birthdays? I am awful about remembering people's birthdays—whether it's my baby nephew, my best friend's little girl, or (gulp!) sometimes even Mr. Cafe Kim!

Birthday Alarm is a computer reminder website and a fantastically simple way to remember birthdays. Just input the names and birthdays of your friends and family members, and the site sends you e-mail reminders before the big date!
