A Look Ahead: The Eiffel Tower turns 125!

We know how you feel about Monday morning -- not the greatest day, right? You fumble for the coffee, stare bleary-eyed at your overstuffed inbox and wonder why you aren't still wrapped in a blanket cocoon on the sofa watching reruns. We'll ease your pain and let you in on some of what this week has to offer.

MONDAY, MARCH 31: Today in 1889, the Eiffel Tower opened its doors for the first time, standing as the entrance to the World's Fair. That means it's the legendary Parisian monument's 125th birthday. Have you ever visited it?

TUESDAY, APRIL 1: Believe nothing you hear today! It's April Fools' Day, which means one of two things: Go out and join in the pranks, or hide in your house until it's all over.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2: Today in 1978, the first episode of "Dallas" aired on CBS. Sadly, Larry Hagman, who played the show's iconic villain J.R. Ewing, is no longer with us. However, you can check out original "Dallas" castmates Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) and Bobby (Patrick Duffy) on the show reboot on TNT.

THURSDAY, APRIL 3: Amanda Bynes turns 28 today. The actress had a rocky year in 2013, but she took a plea deal in 2014. Here's hoping her 2014 is looking up.

FRIDAY, APRIL 4: Today in 1975, Microsoft was founded, so you can feel-extra blessed for every version of Windows that has ever steered your Internet life. Plus, don't forget to update your Window XP operating system. The company is ending all technical support for those users on April 8.
