A couple of years ago, a few days before Art Modell turned 85, the Ravens surprised him with a beautiful cake at lunch in the cafeteria of the Castle in Owings Mills. You haven't lived until you've heard Ozzie Newsome and John Harbaugh and dozens of big, tough football players and coaches and Ravens staffers sing "Happy Birthday. " It wasn't Pavarotti, it wasn't "America's Got Talent," but it was from the heart, all right.  Modell, the Ravens' owner emeritus at the time, was in a terrific mood.

Monica Snodgrass was a brave woman to invite more than two dozen 7-year-olds into her home for her son's birthday party. But with spot-on entertainment planned, it wasn't the headache one might envision.  The Clarksville mother of three had arranged for a visit from Darth Vader, who led light saber training with pool noodles, and talked about what it means to be a Jedi. “You could say it's just a kid's birthday party,” says Snodgrass, whose Heroes for Hire character knew to mention his TIE fighter.

  Video of a disagreement between the owner of a shopping mall party space and a Brooklyn Park woman -- who claims that her daughter's sixth birthday was ruined when the young guests were booted out without receiving pizza, cupcakes and goody bags -- has gone viral. Mother Jaime Norfolk is suing store owner Nsenga Rivens in Anne Arundel County District Court. But Rivens claims that she is the victim.  The owner of the party space, Shugaland, said that she asked the group to leave her business Sunday after they were rude and profane to her. Rivens says she has agreed to relocate her business from Marley Station Mall after mall officials were bombarded by calls from Norfolk supporters.

Adults have been known to shriek and children to bawl when they spy Daisy the Clown, often before she even begins her kid-friendly act, and sometimes from across a room. When it comes to evoking a primal fear of the unknown, Santa's got nothing on clowns, says Kim Daley, who's been performing as Daisy for more than 30 years. But the Columbia resident has mastered a way of defusing children's anxiety - and avoiding meltdowns that can unnerve parents and freak out other kids. To flip audience reaction to Daisy from negative to positive, Daley transforms into her girlie circus counterpart before their eyes.

Retired U.S. Navy Capt. John "Jack" Slaughter said people often ask him what the secret to his long life is. "It was an awful lot of luck," he told friends and four generations of family - about 240 people from around the country and as far away as Canada - who gathered at the Colonnade in north Baltimore on Sunday to wish their patriarch a happy 100th birthday. For one thing, Slaughter said, the first ship he served on was the only one in a group of four to survive a battle during World War II. The other three ships were sunk.
