    FILE - In this Nov. 9, 2010 file photo, actress Betty White wears a U.S. Forest Ranger hat after being named an Honorary Forest Ranger by the U.S. Forest Service, at the Kennedy Center in Washington. White says her plans for her upcoming 90th birthday might include "a little vodka on the rocks." The tireless actress's big day on Jan. 17 seems to be exciting others more than her. NBC is airing a birthday special for White the day before and has picked up a "Candid Camera"-like prank show featuring senior citizens called "Betty White's Off Their Rockers." "I didn't accomplish anything," White said Friday, Jan. 6, 2012. "It just came up on me. I'm blessed with good health." (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)

    Senior citizens rest at a square in Seixal village, on the outskirts of Lisbon May 12, 2011. Portugal had resisted a bailout for months, mindful of the hardship and popular resentment when it called in the IMF in the 1970s as the country emerged from decades of authoritarian rule. But after a government collapse in March, soaring borrowing costs forced Portugal to seek financial aid, becoming the third euro zone member to do so after Greece and Ireland.
