("Diamonds and Wood" contains explicit language.) Today, Chad Lamont Butler, bka Pimp C and one-half of the legendary rap duo UGK, would have turned 38 years old. The godfather of trill is responsible for not only many of Texas rap's defining albums ("Super Tight," "Ridin' Dirty," "Underground Kingz") but also arguably the sound of Southern (read: most popular) rap today. Besides his effortless, forever-quotable rapping, Pimp remains one of hip-hop's most important producers ever, crafting the ride-slow sound of the South through smart samples, trunk-eviscerating basslines, bright horns and rusty, blues guitar licks.

Lena Miller was all smiles as family and friends gathered to wish her a happy birthday Wednesday at Timbuktu Restaurant. The 100-year-old Elkridge resident smiled when she received balloons and when she talked about enjoying her favorite breakfast that morning - bagels with cream cheese and lox. When Alvin G. Thomas, president and CEO of New Life Assisted Living, presented her with a proclamation from Howard County Executive Ken Ulman stating that...

Back in 1972, when John Waters successfully persuaded his friend, Divine, to eat a handful of doggie poo in the name of cinematic trailblazing, who would have guessed that Waters would one day be regarded as among Baltimore's most accomplished and distinguished citizens. It has, indeed, been a long, strange trip. From quiet, almost clandestine showings of "Multiple Maniacs" in musty church basements to exhibitions in major art galleries throughout the world, Waters' career has undergone quite the trajectory.

Sam Schmidt, who is in town for the Grand Prix of Baltimore, didn't get to celebrate his 49th birthday on the race track. That didn't stop Baltimore's Charm City Cakes from wishing the owner of Schmidt Hamilton Motorsports a happy birthday. Two weeks after his actual birthday, Schmidt was presented Saturday afternoon with a race car cake. Members of Schmidt's team, including IndyCar drivers Simon Pagenaud and rookie Tristan Vautier, and onlookers sang “Happy Birthday” to Schmidt, a former driver who became a quadriplegic after a car he was driving at the Walt Disney World Speedway crashed into a wall on Jan. 6, 2000.

It's Mencken's birthday, and everyone in the newsroom is starving for terrapin stew. And a beer. It took about three seconds to find some good Mencken writing on food and restaurants. He begins the essay "A Genial Restauranteur," from the collection "Newspaper Days, 1899-1906," with a defense of spelling: "I am well aware that the word restauranteur , as it appears in the title of this chapter, contains an n that the French eschew; my plea in confession and avoidance must be that I am not writing in French but American, and, specially, the American in vogue on the newspapers of my native Baltimorean in my salad days as journalist.

Did you know that the Affordable Care Act (ACA ) - aka. "Obamacare" - made it illegal for health insurance companies to deny coverage to children due to preexisting conditions? Think about what that means. I am a practicing pediatrician. The second birthday of the ACA reminds me of the bad old days: "Your child has asthma," I would say - and also, I would think to myself, a preexisting condition. Two crushing blows at the same time. Your child is sick, and your child may now be uninsurable.

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish. This is just one of hundreds of memorable rhymes created for children by Dr. Seuss, who began writing books in the 1940s. Monday marks the 99th birthday of Dr. Seuss, which will be celebrated at libraries across the country, including the North Carroll Branch Library, which will present a night called "Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss." Children are invited to learn fascinating facts about the author. For example, Dr. Seuss -- or Theodore "Ted" Geisel -- was not a doctor.

Historian Fred Shoken observes the mystery that early documents refer to our principal city as "Baltemore" ( "Happy birthday, Baltemore!" Aug. 7). The city got its name indirectly from Charles Calvert Lord Baltimore, who got his title from an Irish town called Baltimore, which is an anglicization of the Irish "Baile an Tí Mhóir" meaning "town of the big house. " Since the state prison or "big house" is indeed in Baltimore, this is an appropriate if unflattering appellation. Meanwhile the Irish town of Baltimore is now called by another name in Irish.

(Note to readers: Before sending an email to the editor of this page complaining that I or the editors don't know how to spell the name of our fair city, please know that the spelling "Baltemore," with an "e" instead of an "i," is intentional … read on to learn why.) I recently noticed that some local websites were announcing that July 30 was Baltimore's 284th birthday. Baltimore town was founded on July 30, 1729 - so they say. As a local historian, this came as news to me; I was unaware that July 30 was celebrated as Baltimore's birthday.

My sweet baby boy Aaron turned 1 on Saturday. I still can't quite wrap my head around how fast this year has gone by. I knew it would be fleeting. This isn't my first rodeo, after all, and I'm stunned every day by just how grown-up my 4 1/2-year-old is. And with Aaron being born before my husband returned from his deployment to Afghanistan, I knew that first few weeks would fly. But knowing that, and knowing that we're a two-and-through family and that I wouldn't be doing this again, made me think that if I held on a little tighter to every moment, maybe time would slow down.

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.
