Bryan Bergey got from his fellow marines on his 23rd birthday bash in the Kuwaiti desert. The Corona del Mar reservist was deployed in February. He has since e-mailed home several photos, including one showing how his resourceful buddies made him a "cake" with pieces of bread slathered in chocolate sauce and decorated with M & Ms for his Feb. 28 birthday.

Because OCC used to be an army air base before being transformed into an educational institution 60 years ago, it?s only fitting that the milestone anniversary will be heralded by an airborne mascot. The Pirates will hit their six decade mark Wednesday, and the school is inviting the entire community to watch sky diving champion Jim Wallace jump from an airplane and parachute his way into the OCC quad dressed as a pirate. A massive cake weighing more than a half ton will be sitting right next to his landing pad, and everyone is invited to partake after a few speeches by campus dignitaries.

The Orange County Fair Board got a not-so-sweet treat Thursday — an old cake with a message stenciled in the icing: “Let ‘em eat cake.” But members from the Orange County Preservation Society, who delivered the cake, said they had good intentions. They initially bought the cake about a month ago to give to the board Feb. 2, but that meeting was canceled and rescheduled for Feb. 9. The board, however, canceled that meeting for lack of quorum — and the cake went stale.

As if trying to channel its aviation past, OCC celebrated its 60th birthday with a pirate jumping out of an airplane and landing in the middle of the campus Wednesday. Thousands of students and community members gathered in the school quad, stared up at the sky and snapped photos with their cameras as sky diver Jim Wallace opened his bright green-and-yellow parachute and careened down, buccaneer-clad and wielding a sword. He helped cut the 1,200-pound, white-and-orange birthday cake with Betsy Worthy, one of the school’s first graduates who earned her diploma in 1949, right after the campus was cobbled together out of the remnants of an Army air base that was used to train pilots and bombardiers.

COSTA MESA - Vibrant sprays of lilies, orchids, daffodils and other blooms surrounded artist Shaile Socher's work space Thursday at the Orange County Fair's "Live, Eat, Grow" exhibit promenade. The delicate, detailed petals looked real, but Socher's flowers were made entirely of sugar. "A florist at a bridal show said that I pretty much fooled her," the Huntington Beach resident said as she molded white sugar-gum petals between her fingertips. "She was at another booth, and she walked over and said that she wanted to check out the competition," Socher continued.

While a few of the finer points of Fairview Community Church parishioner Beth Syverson's wedding were ironed out in advance, one big detail remained a mystery: when it would take place. The attire and location, the Old Orange County Courthouse in Santa Ana, were chosen before Wednesday, but caterers, photographers and, especially, the perishable flowers, were aspects she and her partner of four years couldn't plan without setting a date. On Wednesday, following the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions affecting same-sex marriage, Syverson, 44, and Jan Mabie, 50, learned they would have a ceremonial wedding June 26, with the state-recognized paperwork to come after Proposition 8 is formally lifted.

Our two favorite new restaurants of the year are Three Seventy Common in Laguna Beach and Juliette Kitchen & Bar in Newport Beach. There were few fine dining establishments that opened in 2012; perhaps it's the economy or perhaps it's the trend toward small plates and more casual dining. Either way, it allowed us to taste a larger variety of dishes. Here are our front-runners, in no particular order of preference. Green Rice Kebab : Koobideh are ground chicken meatballs, stacked on skewers.

A new university study released this week confirms what many here already know: Orange County has some of the most congested freeways in the nation. California can boast — or loathe — that it has nine of the 10 most clogged stretches of freeway in the country, with a majority in Los Angeles County. But just take a short drive southbound on the San Diego (405) or Santa Ana (5) freeways to the O.C., and the situation isn't much better. According to the study by an institute at Texas A&M University, parts of the 405, 5 and Costa Mesa (55)

COSTA MESA — For Linda Kirkpatrick, who used to work in Las Vegas construction, there's no job satisfaction quite like building the perfect Bundt cake. The Newport Beach resident and owner of a newly opened Nothing Bundt Cakes location in Costa Mesa realized about two years ago that she needed a "paradigm shift" from her work as a commercial and residential subcontractor. "Vegas was hit the hardest, the epicenter of the fallout, and construction just stopped," said Kirkpatrick, 54, of the days leading up to the decision to sell her half of the subcontracting company, which specialized in mirrors, fireplaces and showers.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Black or white is a clear-cut situation, but gray areas require the most attention. Hold off on making a final decision until all the facts are made clear. Take some extra time to make sure that finances are in order. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Prioritize your agenda. Don't waste your time on trivial matters when more pressing issues demand attention. Don't put too much stock in flattery, as there is very likely to be an ulterior motive. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
