• I n 1826, English chemist John Walker was attempting to create a new explosive. Stirring an antimony sulfide and potassium chlorate-based formula with a wood stick, he noticed a teardrop shaped glob had dried on the stick’s tip. He scraped the stick against the stone floor to remove it and, to his surprise, the stick caught on fire. • In 1827 Walker began selling “Friction Lights” but he never applied for a patent. They had tips coated with a potassium chloride-antimony sulfide paste, which ignited when scraped between a fold of sandpaper. They came in a tin, each with a piece of sandpaper. The user folded this over the match, held it tightly and pulled the splint hard. Walker made little money off the invention and copy-cats soon abounded. There were problems with the matches, however. They ignited with the force of a firework and they smelled terrible. • In 1830, French chemist Charles Sauria discovered how to make matches using white phosphorus instead. They didn’t smell as bad, they burned longer, and they were less explosive. However, it turned out to be a disastrous development due to the toxic nature of the phosphorus. Inhaling fumes from burnt matches had deadly consequences. When the fumes of white phosphorus are inhaled, or when fingers that have contacted phosphorus contact the mouth, or when a drinking glass is used that has been in the presence of phosphorus fumes, the toxin enters the body. A single pack of matches contained enough phosphorus to kill a person. • A French scientist named Georges Lemoine found that red phosphorus was not poisonous. A patent was filed on this method of matchmaking in 1898. • The Diamond Match Company purchased the patent and then, at the urging of President Taft, made the patent public domain so that all match manufacturers could use the formula without paying royalties. DIAMOND MATCH COMPANY • The increasing popularity of smoking coupled with the advent of gas for lighting and heat caused the demand for matches to skyrocket. Mechanized methods of matchmaking were needed. To solve this difficulty, the country’s largest manufacturers banded together in 1881 to form a single company, The Diamond Match Company. The best features of the machinery that each had developed individually were combined. MODERN MATCHMAKING • The machines that turn out Strike-Anywhere matches at the rate of more than 300 a second are about 60 feet long and two stories high. Wooden matches are made out of white pine or aspen wood. It takes an hour for a splint of wood to travel through the factory. • The matchbook became the “best read book in America” and the warning, “Close Cover Before Striking” became the most printed phrase in the history of the printed word. For 40 years, matchbooks were the most popular advertising medium in the nation. • Matchbooks are one of the most popular collectibles in the world. In the U.S. it’s the second most popular collecting hobby after stamps. People who collect them are called phillumenists, meaning ‘lovers of light.’ Today, more book matches are used than any other kind. • The market for matches has declined by some 80 percent since the introduction of the disposable lighter in 1972.

Glass Rolling Pin Q: I have a small collection of vintage rolling pins. One of the more unusual ones is made of glass with a stopper on the end. What was the reason for this design? -- Phyllis, Stigler, Okla. A: The glass rolling pins could be filled with cold water, making it easier to roll out pie crusts. These are collectible and often sell in the $25 to $35 range. *** Q: I realize you don’t do appraisals, but can you recommend someone who can so I can find out the value of a 165-year-old dinner plate that I have. It belonged to the last king of France and has been documented by the Library of Congress. -- Linda, Billings, Mont. A: I suggest you contact two of the better auction houses, Sotheby’s, 1334 York Ave., New York, NY 10021; and Christie’s, 20 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10020. Each has experts on staff who might be able to help you. *** Q: I have a fountain pen that my uncle purchased in 1941 when he was in the U.S. Army. I have enclosed pictures of the pen and wonder if it has any value other than being a family keepsake. -- Ruby, Peoria, Ariz. A: You left out an important piece of information, namely the maker of the fountain pen. There are several excellent price guides available at amazon.com that might be helpful. Check out www.thefountainpennetwork. com, one of the better websites for collectors. *** Q: I have a land patent document signed by President Benjamin Harrison in 1892. I would like to know its value. -- Rogene, Grand Junction, Colo. A: One of the better autograph dealers is Brian Kathenes, P.O. Box 482, Hope, NJ 07844; brian@nacvalue.com; and www.nacvalue.com. Kathenes is considered an autograph expert and also is a certified appraiser.

Check us out on Facebook The Real Truth About MSG Monosodium glutamate, commonly known as MSG, is used as a flavor enhancer in many recipes. It’s made from starch, corn sugar or molasses from sugar cane or sugar beets. MSG is produced through a natural fermentation process, much like that used to make beer, vinegar or yogurt. There’s a lot of controversy -- both pro and con -- about using MSG. The following information may help you decide that you want to start using MSG in your dishes. MSG is the sodium salt of glutamate. Glutamate is an amino acid essential for metabolism and brain function and is manufactured by the body. It occurs naturally in almost every protein-containing food we eat -- foods such as cheese, milk, mushrooms, meat, fish and many vegetables like tomatoes. When MSG is added to foods, it provides a similar flavoring function as the glutamate that occurs naturally. The MSG added to food is handled in the body the same way as natural glutamate found in foods. MSG contains only one-third of the sodium as table salt and is used in much smaller amounts. When MSG is used with table salt, it actually can help reduce the total amount of sodium by 20 percent to 40 percent. In addition, MSG can be helpful to the elderly, who may experience a decline in smell and taste. Adding MSG may make eating more enjoyable for older adults. Some people feel they are sensitive to MSG, and attribute headaches and other symptoms to eating it. However, current research has not found a link between MSG and these reactions. MSG is safe for consumption, as stated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It is even safe for infants, as human breast milk contains glutamate. Flavoring your dishes with MSG can enhance their taste. As a general guideline, about half a teaspoon of MSG per pound of meat or per four to six servings of vegetables should be sufficient. Overall, MSG helps make good food taste even better. Adding MSG to my recipe for Swedish Meatballs and Gravy enhances the spices and flavors of this familiar comfort food dish. (Additional information provided by Tammy Kliethermes, Dietetic Intern, Missouri Department of Health.)

1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper 1/2 teaspoon MSG 1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 3/4 pound lean ground beef 1/2 pound lean ground pork 1 large egg plus 1 egg white, beaten Vegetable oil, for brushing Swedish Gravy: 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons flour 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley Lingonberry jam, for serving (optional) 1. Place breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, allspice, salt, white pepper and MSG, and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add milk and Worcestershire sauce and bring to a simmer. Pour the milk mixture over the breadcrumbs and stir to make a thick paste; let cool. Add the beef, pork, egg and egg white to the bowl and mix until combined. 2. Brush a baking sheet with vegetable oil. Roll the meat into 1-inch balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour. 3. Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake meatballs until cooked through, about 20 minutes. 4. Meanwhile, to make gravy, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add flour and cook, whisking, until smooth. Whisk in beef broth and Worcestershire sauce, and bring to a simmer. Add the cream and meatballs. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer until the gravy thickens, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Transfer to a serving dish; sprinkle with the parsley and serve with lingonberry jam, if desired.

What to Do with Memories Read: Psalm 25:1-7 Remember not the sins of my youth. (v. 7) Memories can bless or torment. In a random moment there flashes a familiar face across your mental screen. Maybe it’s someone you worked with years ago, or went to church with, someone with whom you prayed or laughed. Maybe it’s the face of a loved one now with the Lord. How you respond depends, in part, on your personality. If you can immediately give thanks for that person and go on, I envy you. But if you’re like me, there’s a prior step. The memory makes you sad. You know you can’t go back. You’ll never share those great times again. You’ll never be together again in the same way. Now that you’ve acknowledged your sadness you’re ready to give thanks to

the Lord. You acknowledge the real pang of sadness, then move forward to give thanks for the time God gave you together back then. Then there are also the painful memories. Some faces that come remind you of foolish, harmful, or selfish things you’ve done; of people you’ve hurt, or who hurt you. In these cases we don’t want to go back, we just want to forget. But first we must forgive. Then pray for God to forgive us. I love the verse, “Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness O Lord!” (v. 7).

Prayer: Lord, I will remember not with guilt but with gratitude.

PICKS OF THE WEEK “Trance” (R) -- After a priceless painting is stolen, one of the thieves can’t quite remember where he put it. It’s all because of a bang on the head suffered by art dealer Simon (James McAvoy) during the heist. The gangster in charge of the robbery (Vincent Cassel) hires a gorgeous hypnotist (Rosario Dawson) to delve into Simon’s mind and find out where he stashed the painting. The lines between memory and reality, lies and truth all start to twist as each scene adds another layer of intrigue. Written and directed by Danny Boyle (creative force behind “Slumdog Millionaire”), “Trance” will keep your attention, despite all the confusion. Boyle is an accomplished director who deploys visual spectacle with care. Even with a story so murky, Boyle is able to make all of the head-scratching pay off. “Ginger and Rosa” (PG-13) -- This 1960s coming-of-age drama makes a stark contrast with the one discussed above: this one is actually good. In 1962 London, Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) are teenagers and best friends. Ginger becomes involved in the ban-the-bomb movement, and she becomes fixated on fixing the looming threat of nuclear war. Rosa is more interested in boys and church -- an odd combination, but this is a movie about people who are on the edge of self-awareness. Interesting conflicts and characters arise, all orbiting around a stellar performance from Fanning. “Welcome to the Punch” (R) -- This is another British crime thriller starring James McAvoy, but unlike “Trance” discussed above, this one is not good. In a world where all lights must be blue-filtered and constantly swinging around, a cop (McAvoy) and criminal mastermind Jacob Sternwood (Marc Strong) foster a deadly grudge. The game is stepped up when Jacob’s son is shot. This movie sure loves its gunplay, but doesn’t know what to do with it. The excitement-per-bullet factor is disturbingly low for a movie with so much bangbang. DOG OF THE WEEK “Love and Honor” (PG-13) -- Two soldiers in the Vietnam War make a trip back to the United States while they’re on leave -- one of them needs to check up on his girlfriend, and the other one (Liam Hemsworth) is going along for the laughs. However, it’s 1969, and now everyone under the age of 35 is a hippie (that’s how it happened, right?) The first guy’s girlfriend isn’t his anymore, and Hemsworth hooks up with a cute, anti-war blonde (Teresa Palmer) because he made up a story about being AWOL. The script, I strongly suspect, must have been written by a lovesick 13-year-old after watching “Forrest Gump.” Occasionally, a character makes some kind of heavy-handed speech. It’s nobody’s idea of good drama -- watching attractive people joylessly recite whatever bland nonsense they were told to memorize.
