Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to Amy Uram who won this week's "Mind Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

Sometimes I am loved,
Usually by the young.
Other times I am dreaded,
Mostly by the old ones.
I am hard to remember,
Also hard to forget.
And yet if you do,
You'll make someone upset.
I occur every day
Everyone has to face me.
Even if you don't want it
To happen; embrace me.
What am I?

ANSWER: Birthday.

Enjoy!
