I'm trying to generate a daily automated HTML email using Perl and MIME::Lite.  I have most of what I want working coming to Outlook 2007 clients although I cannot for the life of me get the date to work since moving from text to HTML.  The date should be generated behind the subject.  I'm a Perl noob so any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
use MIME::Lite;
# SendTo email id
my $email = '';
# Date
my $date = 'date';
# create a new MIME Lite based email
my $msg = MIME::Lite->new
        Subject => $date,
        From    => '',
        To      => $email,
        Type    => 'text/html',
        Data    => '<html>
                        <body lang=EN-US link=blue vlink=purple>
                        <p><b>-Stuff I am working on:</b></p>
                        <p><b>-Stuff I want looked over:</b></p>
