• If you’re planning a visit to the United Kingdom, you might want to keep in mind this rather obscure statute: It’s illegal to stand within 100 yards of the reigning monarch if you don’t have socks on. • A groundhog can move 700 pounds of dirt in a single day. • When the twoand-one-halfhour finale of the groundbreaking television show “M*A*S*H” aired on Feb. 28, 1983, advertisers paid a hefty $450,000 for a single 30-second spot. That was $50,000 more than the same spot cost at the Super Bowl that year. • We all know what a disaster is, but did you know where the word came from? The base of the word is “aster,” which is Latin for “star.” The word “disaster” originally meant “an unfavorable aspect of a star,” reflecting the ancient notion that the motions of heavenly bodies affected terrestrial events. © 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

• On Aug. 30, 1963, a "hot line" between Moscow and Washington goes into effect to speed communication between the governments of the United States and the Soviet Union and help prevent the possibility of an accidental war. The hot line was never really necessary to prevent war, but it did provide a useful prop for movies about nuclear disaster, such as "Fail Safe" and "Dr. Strangelove." • On Aug. 29, 1982, the Swedish-born actress and three-time Academy Award winner Ingrid Bergman dies of cancer in London on her 67th birthday.

Memories Take Shape With Homemade Clay Think of all the experiences your kids have already stored up in their memory pool since summer vacation began. Talk about their recollections together, then put them into shape with this fabulous play clay made with baking soda, cornstarch and water. It's a snap to concoct and especially amazing to watch the magical transformations when the liquid mixture turns into a mashed potato-like consistency right before your eyes. Chemistry in the kitchen was never so much fun. The pliable, smooth white play clay is a perfect medium for letting out the creativity of imaginative minds. Shape sculptures of the animals and birds your kids gawked at while at the zoo, a dolphin they met at an aquarium or the clown who taught them to juggle at a country fair. Once they create sculptures or beads from the dough, let them harden overnight, and your kids will have another fun afternoon putting their strokes of color on their objects. Here's the simple stuff you'll need to make the dough: -- 2 cups baking soda -- 1 cup cornstarch -- 1 1/4 cups water -- Saucepan -- Candy coloring (optional), available where cake decorations are sold; food coloring also works -- Acrylic paints and brushes (optional) Here's the fun: 1. Place the baking soda, cornstarch and water in the saucepan. An adult should stir the mixture over low heat for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and continue stirring. 2. When the mixture takes on a mashed-potato consistency, it's ready for play. If you'd like, separate it into small batches and color each batch with a few drops of candy coloring. If you leave the clay natural, you can let it dry for about 12 hours and paint it with acrylics. Tips: --For sculptures, put a small lump of clay in the barrel of a garlic press and squeeze to make long hair to plop on a clown's head. --For beads, roll small ball shapes in your hands and poke a hole through each one with a skewer. When hard, string on a bit of elastic through the holes. ••• Donna Erickson's award-winning series "Donna's Day" is airing on public television nationwide.

• To keep vinyl car seats bearable in summer heat, keep a few towels in your vehicle and lay them over the seat. This also keeps the plastic parts of baby seats from burning little legs and arms. • You can use plain white bread to get fingerprints and smudges off of wallpaper and semigloss painted walls. Just ball up the bread center (not the crust) and rub the smudge away. • “Out of prewash and looking at a nasty grease stain? Grab your dishwashing liquid soap (not the one you would put in your automatic dishwasher). It’s designed to break down grease, and I just dab it on, scrub a bit and then let it set for about a quarter of an hour. After that, I launder in hot water. It’s usually successful.” -Nancy V., via email © 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.
