Click on "Forums" in the menu - it's right below the DC logo in the upper-left corner. At the almost-bottom of the page is a 'What's going on?" section that lists that day's birthday people.
As you scrolled down that page you probably already noticed that every forum and sub-forum is listed. "The Back Porch" is the last one before the "What's Going On?" section and that's where the birthday threads show up.
It's amazing what you can find on different websites when you play because you're avoiding real work.
