I DON'T REMEMBER reading Winnie-the-Pooh, but I remember having the Pooh stories read to me by teachers and by my mother in the late 1940s. I saw them then as the humorous adventures of a loveable bear - "the Bear of Very Little Brain" - blundering through life knowing less than I. That was the fun of the Pooh stories. The characters were so like us. Or, as someone says in "Winnie-the-Pooh," published 75 years ago this fall, "Some have brains, and some don't. And there it is." For example, when Pooh and Piglet set out to put on a birthday party for Eeyore, "the old, grey Donkey," we 7-year-olds saw trouble coming.

Amber Milnes Aberdeen In her first season with the Eagles, Milnes faced a couple of daunting tasks -- rebuilding after graduating three starters from last year's state championship team and then rebuilding again after 2011-12 All-Metro Player of the Year Brionna Jones tore an anterior cruciate ligament in January, which forced her to miss the rest of the season. With two freshman and two sophomore starters, she converted a team that had been centered on the 6-foot-3 Jones into an up-tempo team in which everyone had to contribute.

A.A. MILNE: The Man Behind Winnie-the Pooh. Written by Ann Thwaite. Random House. 553 pages. $29.95. IN A.A. Milne's "The House at Pooh Corner," Rabbit thinks that Christopher Robin "respects Owl, because you can't help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn't spell it right." The same could be said of Ann Thwaite's new biography of Milne. Her efforts are to be respected even if she doesn't get it right.Thwaite's book is long on facts and short on interpretation. Her obviously painstaking research has produced a hefty volume chock full of unnecessary detail and trivia.

Michelle Milne feels like she's going to give birth this weekend. But she's actually just delivering her graduate thesis in the form of a one-woman show, Looking for Lulu, presented by the Towson University MFA Theater Program today through Sunday at Theatre Project. "I feel like I'm putting my new baby out there for everyone to see," says Milne, who is getting her master's degree in fine arts at Towson. "It's a very personal piece." Looking for Lulu is loosely based on Milne's life and experiences.

This past Sunday, Winnie the Pooh -- the fictional yellow bear who's inspired such philosophical texts as The Tao of Pooh, Pooh and the Philosophers and Postmodern Pooh -- turned 75. The Havre de Grace Branch Library is celebrating with a belated birthday bash Monday, featuring games, stories and treats. Now most of us know a thing or two about Pooh: He eats "hunny" by the fistful; he hangs out with a miniature pig, a bouncing tiger and a donkey; and he possesses a rather irrational fear of imaginary "Woozles," "Heffalumps" and "Jagulars."

"I had the feeling that all wasn't well with my father," Claire Milne recalled. It was Christmastime in 2003, and Milne had flown from her London home to visit her 82-year-old father in Maryland. Milne noticed that her dad struggled to stay upright as he walked, early signs of a mysterious neurological condition. Over the next four years, Milne, 56, would travel across the Atlantic every few months to watch over him, standing by during hospital stays, offering support to her ailing stepmother as well.

With this Saturday evening's performance of Johannes Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem (German Requiem), the Annapolis Chorale ends its season with an opera luminary and renowned musician as guest conductor. Sherrill Milnes, a veteran of New York's Metropolitan Opera often regarded as the world's foremost baritone, said he was initially asked to sing with the chorale. "I said, `What I'd really like to do is conduct,'" Milnes said in an interview this week. "I was a fiddle player as well as a singer," he explained.

The other day I took the time to stop and smell the Scotch.I sniffed the fruit of the Speysides, inhaled the smokiness of the Islays and noted the peat of the Highland Parks. They were some of the component whiskeys of Scotland that make up a Scotch blend, J&B Select. The new Scotch is being introduced to the United States in two states, Maryland and Massachusetts.Mine was one of a number of noses in a sniff-off held last week in Ruth's Chris Steak House in downtown Baltimore, designed to show that all Scotch did not smell like medicine.

Today's the 75th anniversary of one of the great literary achievements of the 20th century. I can't think of more than a dozen figures, personalities, in all literature that can compete with Winnie-the-Pooh for enduring enchantment. Given the nature of publishing, the date is a bit arbitrary, but for the sake of felicitations, Oct. 14, 1926, is the recognized publication date of Winnie-the-Pooh, Alan Alexander Milne's introduction of what is now Earth's most famous bear and his friends and neighbors.
