Anyone out there got something like this?  I want a script to recognize the Month and day and then compare it against database entries for events that happened on the same date through history.  I'm not very good when it comes to the whole "date" thing or I could probably get it myself.  Any help would be appreciated.

that is a realy rather simple. I think that you are trying to over think this one. I often do this my self.

Are you wanting to search by month or day or both?

Not even a search.  Just something to display in a small box on the front page of my site.  Something like this:

I think it always helps me if I can just see an example.  Lots of things I can work out for myself if I just sit down long enough, but like I said, the whole date format thing screws me up.

SELECT whatever, (YEAR(CURDATE())-YEAR(event_date)) as years_ago
FROM event_table
AND DAY(event_date) = DAY(CURDATE())
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
