A FAVORITE “CHILD”

K ELLE Y

by Blue Sullivan

Blended fresh for you

America is a culture that loves good food. The proliferation of successful cooking shows on TV like “Master Chef” and “Chopped” has given rise to the “celebrity chef.” Yet perhaps the most beloved chef since the advent of television isn’t on TV anymore. That’s Julia Child.

• She was born in 1912 in Pasadena, California. Her father John was a graduate of Princeton and a California real estate investor, and her mother, also named Julia, was a paper-company heiress. • In her youth, Child attended the elite Katherine Branson School for Girls in San Francisco. She was the tallest student in her class at 6 feet, 2 inches. • At school, Child was known as a highspirited girl who loved playing pranks. She was also an accomplished athlete, especially skilled at golf and tennis. • Child attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. Her intended career had little to do with cooking. She wanted to be a writer instead. turn the page for more!

TOOLS 4 LIFE BY DR JIM COYLE Working Parents

Are you a working parent coming home every night to a pile of laundry, uncut grass, and household chores calling your name? Are the weekends filled with stress from trying to play catch-up? Are you guilt ridden because the kids take on the role of a liability instead of an asset to your life? Here are some tools that can help working parents and kids reconnect. Talk to your kids. You will be surprised how much they understand Involve yourself with a common interest that you both can enjoy Minutes are very important. Carve out 30 minutes to play catch, read a book, watch a show….. Escape from the demands of the day and use this time as an oasis with your family We must look at our kids as gifts and unwrap them every day in the chaos and hustle of life’s demands

• “There were some famous women novelists in those days,” Child said, “and I intended to be one.” Alas, though she wrote often and submitted manuscripts regularly to the New Yorker, none were ever published. • After graduating, Child tried her hand at advertising while working for a successful home furnishings company. It didn’t last long, as Child was promptly fired for “gross insubordination.” • When World War II broke out, Child volunteered for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in Washington, D.C. She performed assignments all over the world, including stays in China and Sri Lanka. • While in Sri Lanka in 1945, Child began seeing her future husband, Paul, a fellow employee of the OSS. Child and Paul married after the war in September of 1946. • Paul and Child moved to France in 1948, when Paul was assigned to work at the American Embassy in Paris. It was there that Child’s love for cooking came into full bloom. She was quoted as saying, “The whole experience was an opening up of the soul and spirit for me . . . I was hooked, and for life, as it turned out.” • In Paris, Child enrolled in the worldrenowned “Le Cordon Bleu” cooking school. After six months of training, she chose to open her own school with two fellow classmates. • They named the school “L’Ecole de Trois Gourmandes,” which translates to “The School of the Three Gourmands.” • Child and the other two founders of the school set out to create a cookbook of French cuisine that might be understood and employed by regular folk.

• The two-volume cookbook was released in 1961, entitled “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” The book was incredibly successful, remaining the bestselling cookbook for over five years. • The book has since become a favored teaching tool at cooking schools throughout the world. Yet there was a time when it looked like it might never be published at all. • The writing of the book was a grueling and frustrating 10-year process for Child and her collaborators. She would spend months trying to perfect recipes for just a single ingredient. She wrote to her principal collaborator, Simca Beck, during her frustration: “I’ve just poached two more eggs and thrown them down the toilet.” • The initial draft of the book was turned down by the first publisher, as were many subsequent drafts. Only after offering it to a different publisher, Alfred Knopf, was it picked up for publication. • Child’s first television appearance was on a humble Boston public television station in 1962. She cooked an omelet on air. After a surprisingly positive and vocal response, she was invited to do a series. Her initial pay was about $50 a show. • Child’s show, “The French Chef,” grew quickly beyond those humble beginnings. Soon after its initial airings, the show was syndicated to 96 stations. The show was both a commercial and a critical hit. In 1964, Child was presented with the George Foster Peabody Award for her work on the show. Two years later, she was given an Emmy Award as well.

A FAVORITE “CHILD”(continued): • “The French Chef” was produced and directed by Russ Morash. It ran for 199 episodes between 1963 and 1966. • “The French Chef” was just one of many shows Child appeared on during her long career. Other programs included “Julia Child and Company,” “Julia Child and More Company” and “Dinner at Julia’s.” She was also a regular guest on “Good Morning, America.” • Child wrote many other cookbooks after her initial success. Among these were “In Julia’s Kitchen with Master Chefs,” “Baking with Julia,” “Julia’s Delicious Little Dinners” and “Julia’s Casual Dinners.” Many of these were accompanied by their own TV specials. • Julia Child died on August 13, 2004. She was just two days shy of her 92nd birthday. She was remembered by her family and friends as a person of great generosity who loved to teach others. Though she once mourned her “lack of talent,” Child left an indelible legacy in the kitchens of people around the world. • In addition to inspiring both the book and film, “Julie and Julia,” Child’s life inspired an exhibit entitled “Julia Child’s Kitchen” to be installed at the National Museum of American History. • The installation is 20 feet by 14 feet. These were the dimensions of Child’s kitchen in Massachusetts. Though the walls and floor were created for the exhibit, everything else found there is from Child’s own former kitchen. The arrangement of everything found inside was assembled exactly to replicate Child’s original workspace. • There are over 1,200 individual pieces from Child in the exhibit, including equipment housed in the cabinets and drawers. These objects are not visible to the general public, but hundreds of others still are.

● The longest game in the history of professional baseball was played between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings in April of 1981. It lasted just shy of 8 1/2 hours, and ran for an unbelievable 33 innings.

● Jazz musician Glenn Miller was the recipient of the first gold record ever awarded, for the big-band hit “Chattanooga Choo-Choo.”

Three Simple Steps to Weight Loss Far too many of us, women especially, can develop weight problems as we age. We’re less active. Menopause doesn’t help. We might have different eating patterns. Researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have done a study that looked at self-monitoring as a way to reduce weight. The study results show how we can lose weight safely in three steps: 1) Keep a journal that reports everything that’s eaten; 2) Don’t skip meals; and 3) Don’t go out to lunch. Sounds so simple, doesn’t it. They divided 123 overweight and obese senior women into two groups for the yearlong study: one group used diet and exercise, and the other only diet. Here’s what they learned: Women who kept journals of what they ate lost six pounds more than those who didn’t keep a journal. This appeared to be the most important of the three steps, and it makes sense. If we write down exactly what we eat, it’s easier to identify whether we’re meeting our goals. The trick is to be honest, and being honest means measuring portions and reading labels -- and always keeping your journal with you in case you do eat while away from home. Women who went out for lunch at least once a week lost five pounds less than those who didn’t, or who ate lunch out less frequently. When you eat at a restaurant, you can’t control the size of the portions or how the food is cooked. Women who skipped meals lost eight pounds less than those who didn’t skip meals. Researchers weren’t sure why this was so, but it could be that being hungry leads to overeating or eating out. Eating at regular times gave the best success.

Chesapeake Bay Bridge

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel

● On Aug. 9, 1936, at the 1936 Berlin ● On

Aug. 16, 1896, George Carmack spots nuggets of gold in a creek bed near the Klondike River in Canada’s Yukon Territory. His lucky discovery sparks the last great gold rush in the American West. Over the next two years, as many as 50,000 would-be miners arrived in the region. ● On Aug. 17, 1915, Charles F. Kettering is issued a patent for his “engine-starting device” -- the first electric ignition for automobiles. In the early years, drivers used hand cranks to start the internal combustion process that powered car engines.

● On Aug. 18, 1940, Walter Percy Chrysler, the founder of the American automotive corporation that bears his name, dies in New York. Aside from automobiles, Chrysler was known for financing the 77-story Art Deco Chrysler Building skyscraper in midtown Manhattan. When completed in 1930, it was the tallest building in the world and the first manmade structure to top 1,000 feet. ● On Aug. 13, 1961, East German soldiers begin building a wall between Soviet-controlled East Berlin and the democratic western section of the city. Berlin residents found themselves cut off from friends or family until the wall was dismantled in 1989. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Rising 186 feet above the water, the beautiful Chesapeake Bay Bridge of Maryland is one of the longest above-water structures in the world. Listed below are interesting facts about one of the East’s most spectacular bridges. • The 4.3-mile-long Chesapeake Bay Bridge takes route US 50/US 301 across the Chesapeake Bay between Kent Island and Annapolis. It provides Maryland with a direct link to the Washington D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis areas. • The bridge is commonly referred to as Bay Bridge, yet its official name is The William Preston Lane Jr. Memorial (Bay) Bridge, named after the Governor of Maryland when construction first began. • Before the bridge was constructed, Maryland residents were forced to cross the Chesapeake by boat to get to and from the Eastern Shore. • The idea for a Chesapeake bridge was first introduced in 1927 but was quickly disregarded when the Great Depression struck. It was reintroduced in 1938, but with the outbreak of WWII, it was put on hold again. • Governor William Preston Lane commissioned the building of the bridge in 1947, and in early 1949, construction finally began. • The first span, eastbound, opened for traffic in July of 1952, followed by the westbound span in June of 1973. The eastbound span cost $45 million to build and at the time was the world’s longest continuous over-water steel structure and the world’s third-longest bridge. The westbound span’s total cost was $128 million. • Both spans were designed by J.E. Greiner Company, Inc. • During its first year of service, the eastbound span carried around 1.2 million vehicles. By 1996, the bridge was seeing 20.5 million vehicles per year. • The westbound span stands about 25 feet taller than its predecessor. • The toll is currently $4 for two-axle vehicles, increasing from $2.50 on November 1, 2011. • The bridge is actually split as two side-byside bridges, eastbound with two lanes and westbound with three. All lanes are reversible and the extra lane is usually given to the area of heavier traffic. • On average, the bridge carries approximately 65,000 vehicles every day. • During the summer months, the bridge offers a beautiful view of surrounding areas and sailboats flooding the bay below. • Every spring, the bridge hosts a Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk, closing one lane of traffic for one day for a pedestrian walk that is approximately 4.5 miles. • The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Walk, usually held on the first Sunday in May, has become a widespread attraction hosting anywhere between 40,000 to 60,000 people. It usually takes participants about four hours to complete. Due to construction problems and the Bay Bridge Preservation Project, the walk was not held in 2012. • Construction of both spans used 126,100 tons of steel and 286,000 cubic yards of concrete. Over 3.3. cubic yards of earth were moved. • During the winters of 1986-1988, the eastbound span was closed and renovated and completely re-decked; it is estimated to need further renovations in 2018. • The bridge’s traffic capacity is 1,500 vehicles per lane, per hour.

August 14th 2012

December 22– January 19

June 22– July 22 Excuses, excuses, Cancer. You’ve delivered too many. Time to pull up your bootstraps and get a move on! A new face brings a fresh perspective to an old dilemma..

January 20– February 18 An appeal goes out. Help only if you can, Aquarius. You don’t have to save the day every time. A humorous incident gets people talking.

July 23– August 22

Throw caution to the wind this week, Capricorn, and take no prisoners. There is nothing beyond your reach. Whispers kick the gossip mill into high gear.

A relationship strengthens with an admission. Ill feelings give way to wishes of good will, and all is right with the world once again, Leo.

August 23– September 22

February 19– March 20 Tests in patience abound, and you must keep a lid on it. A charity comes calling. Don’t hesitate to lend a hand, Pisces. Your services are sorely in need.

What goes around comes around, Virgo, so be careful what steps you take. A mission in organization comes to a complete halt with a discovery.

March 21– April 19 Perfection will come but at a great cost, Aries. Perhaps you don’t have to do it all alone. A green project reaps many rewards in your bottom line and otherwise.

September 23– October 22 All kidding aside, Libra. You need to make good on a promise. Bail out now, and you will lose out on an opportunity. Amazing things happen at work.

April 20– May 20 Lean times call for major cutbacks in entertainment, but all is not lost, Taurus. There is much free fun to be had. You manage to pull off the impossible at work.

October 23– November 21 It is what it is, Scorpio. Stop trying to twist the truth and see the situation for what it is. It is a mess, but that’s to be expected, and it will get straightened out over time.

May 21– June 21 A friend’s loopiness catches you off guard. No need to worry, Gemini. Their head may not be in the right place, but their heart is. A great charade begins.

November 22– December 21 Oh dear, Sagittarius. You’re a popular person this week, and your services are in high demand. Commit to what you can feasibly take on, and leave the rest.

With all the talk about a famous chef, it seems only natural to spend a little time on food as well. Here are some fun and interesting facts about various culinary delights, rare and not-so-rare, found in the United States and abroad. • The most expensive coffee in the world comes from beans called the Kopi Luwak. These beans sell for $120 to $600 a pound and are sold mainly in Japan and the United States. The beans are found in areas with high numbers of Civets, a cat-sized mammal whose diet of ripe berries creates a unique environment for the growth of these rare beans. • The popsicle was invented in 1905 by Frank Epperson, though its creation was entirely by accident. After leaving a mixture of soda and water with a stir stick● Monday on his porch on a night of freezing $5 burger baskets 11-8 temperatures in San Francisco, Epperson ● Tuesday $6.99 tacos 11-8 awoke$4.00 to discover the solution frozen to the well Margaritas 11-8 stir ●stick. He called theWings resultant fruity, Thursday, $5 Dozen 4-9 pm icy treat the “epsicle.” When he patented ● Sunday All Day Happy Hour! it 18● years later, In Epperson renamedTVS it the All Games High Definition “popsicle.” • If you’re looking for something to eat that is about as expensive as a mid-priced luxury car, your search is over. The most expensive food in the world is a type of caviar called “Almas.” This caviar from the Iranian Beluga fish will run you about $34,500 per kilogram (2 lb., 3oz.), a price that gives it the nickname “black gold.” Only albino sturgeons between 60 and 100 years old can produce it, and only those found in the relatively pollution-free southern Caspian Sea. • The traditional method of eating caviar is by rolling it between your thumb and index finger and then into your mouth. If you’ve paid over $30,000, however, you’ve earned the right to eat it any way you choose! • There are expensive foods, and then there are odd foods. In the West, we may be tempted to squash a beatle or cricket in our house, or at least shoo it outside. In many Asian countries, insects are welcome in the kitchen; in fact they’re on the menu! • While coconut milk comes from the coconut flesh, coconut water is the liquid actually found within the coconut. In addition to being refreshing, coconut water has another, unexpected use. • Coconut water is actually an acceptable substitute for blood plasma. It has a PH level that is ideal. It is also sterile. • For anyone who really loves cherry pie, there are reasons to encourage your continued consumption of this wonderful (though calorie-rich) dessert. It turns out that the chemicals that give tart cherries their red appearance have potentially more pain-relieving potential than aspirin or Advil. It’s thought that a diet of 20 tart cherries a day can lessen inflammation and the likelihood of headaches. • Residents of Michigan are especially fortunate in this regard, since Michigan contains nearly four million cherry trees. Each of these produces between 150 to 200 pounds of tart cherries a year. Considering a cherry pie has about 250 cherries, Michigan is a cherry pie lover’s dream.

A: Today’s over-the-air TV transmissions are entirely digital, a change mandated by the government a couple of years back. The old “analog” TV transmissions were switched off in 2010, something that owners of old tube televisions who try to pick up signals with their old antennae are painfully aware of. However, even with an older television, you can pick up line-of-sight transmissions and receive local television stations. Converter boxes are available at most large retailers that sell electronics and cost from $30 to $60. You can learn more at http://dtv.gov/ consumercorner_4.html. If you have a newer HD television, you might be able to pick up a few signals if the TV has a built-in digital antenna. If not, there are several HD antennas on the market. If you live in an area where TV signals are traditionally faint, you’ll absolutely need one of these. They start at around $45 and go up in price, but the plus side is that you won’t pay any more money for TV signals once the antenna is up. At least one brand of HD antenna was designed to be set up inside your home, but there are other brands specifically made to be set up outside or on the roof. Outdoor antennas can pick up signals up to 50 miles away in most cases, as long as there aren’t too many obstructions like hills or other buildings between your home and the transmission source. To set up an outdoor HD antenna, follow the instructions included with the product. Those made for rooftops should include proper mounting bolts and, ideally, small sealing squares (basically roof-patching squares) that sit between the antenna mount base and the roof. If those sealing squares aren’t included, head to your home-improvement store for roof patches and cut them to fit. You’ll also need to feed the coaxial cable connecting the antenna back into the house to your television. If possible, try using the holes already drilled by the cable company to install its coax, rather than punch more holes in your home’s envelope. A number of videos on the web can provide more information on antenna installation. This video (http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=CuY-D9fQG_s) shows one homeowner’s installation option, at the top of the eave. Another (http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=C0WQtzMdo7I) provides details on properly positioning the antenna for an optimal signal, which is important in remote areas.

NOW HERE’S A TIP By JoAnn Derson

● When patching cracks in plaster walls, if the crack is large or it’s a small hole, stuff it with wadded-up newspaper or steel wool in order to fill the gap. Apply the plaster over the top. ● Recipe substitution: For each cup of brown sugar needed, use 1 cup of white sugar and 2 tablespoons of molasses.

● If your washer oversuds because you accidentally added too much detergent, just add a half-cup of white vinegar to the wash water. It will dampen the extra bubbles. Then make sure to put the load through an additional rinse to eliminate soap residue in your clothes. ● Ever had to deal with early arrivals at your garage sale? If so, you know it can be annoying and disruptive. When advertising your sale, use the block number instead of your house number. It will still be easy to find, but you’re less likely to get staked out. ● “It can be hard to find a good contractor or company to provide a service. The best referral resource I’ve found is friends. Whenever someone I know has work done at their home or purchases an item I might be interested in, I always find out the details of who worked on it or where it was purchased, and whether my friends were satisfied with the outcome. Friends and even acquaintances usually are quite amenable to giving details, especially when they are either very pleased or very displeased with a job.” -- R.E. in New York Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
