Posted "today,yesterday, n days ago"

For my crmercado.com site, I show the date posted - boring.

I would like to emphasise that my site is posting 2-3 times daily..

How can I take the date value and display it as follows:

If DatePosted "day" is equal to Now()= "Today"
1 day ago = "Yesterday"
2+ = "N days ago"

 <cfset variables.number_of_days = dateDiff("d",  variables.PostedDate,  now())>

 <cfswitch expression="#variables.number_of_days#">
    <cfcase value="0"> Today</cfcase>
    <cfcase value="1"> Yesterday </cfcase>
    <cfdefaultcase> #variables.number_of_days# days ago</cfdefaultcase>
 </cfswitch>
