America is a country full of would-be inventors. For most, it’s as simple as discovering a problem that no one’s ever solved and coming up with a creative and inexpensive solution. Here are just a few of the countless TV marvels that have been advertised on our sets since this phenomenon began. • A good example of the whole “discover a problem, discover a solution” method of inventing is the “Snap-It Screw.” It’s a method of replacing the tiny, and difficult to handle, screws that hold eyeglasses together. • The “Snap-It Screw” was invented by Nancy Tedeschi. “The old saying that necessity is the mother of inventions is what inspired [it],” said Tedeschi. She meant it literally, as it was her own mother who inspired the invention’s creation. • Tedeschi’s mother was overseas doing volunteer work when a hinge screw in her glasses broke. Left with no other immediate remedy, Tedeschi’s mother pulled the pin out of one of her earrings and placed it where the former hinge had been. • “She wore this dangling bead from the hinge of her glasses for about a year. She traveled to several foreign countries with it in, and people would literally stop her on the streets and ask her where she got this charm,” said Tedeschi. “My mom came to me and said, ‘You have to invent charms for glasses.’” • For Tedeschi, inventing the “Snap-It Screw” was the easy part. The difficult part was doing all the things necessary to produce and market her new invention. She had to set up patents all over the world. She had to set up a factory in China and a warehouse in Seattle, Washington. She had to spend countless hours marketing her idea to retailers. Today, the “SnapIt Screw” is a success, and Tedeschi says that despite all the hard work, she wouldn’t change a thing. • “Bling To Go” was invented by Abby Appelt during a period where she was forced to use crutches. She felt the dull metal could use a little pizzazz. So she created some decorative wrap-on decals to give her crutches some personality, and her invention was born. • Appelt said, “When I wore my crutch décor, I had people stop me, literally everywhere I went, complimenting me on how awesome my crutches were!”

• As Appelt notes, people decorate a million different things with stickers, so it made sense to do likewise with crutches. • “Bling To Go” works on crutches, canes, walkers and bed poles. It’s a medical grade product that can be sanitized and cleaned, so it presents no health hazard to the user. The company’s slogan is “express your health,” and they back up their words by being active contributors to several physical and emotional health charities. • Perhaps one of the more peculiar and innovative creations making the invention circuit is the “Bogdon Bass.” It’s a standing bass guitar whose main component is a cardboard box! • The “Bogdon Bass” is literally a large cardboard box sealed with tape, with a wooden neck and vinyl strings. It can be played with or without an amplifier. Because of the use of these materials, it is lightweight, inexpensive and recyclable. • This peculiar instrument was invented by a man named Chris Badynee. He named the instrument after his father, Bogdon. • “The inspiration to make my Bogdon Box Bass was that I had the desire to own something that I couldn’t afford, so I made one myself,” explained Badynee. “All I wanted was a natural-sounding upright bass for my own home recordings of songs I wrote.” • After assembling what he thought was just a silly idea only he’d use, Badynee was shocked by how good the makeshift instrument sounded. “[It] sounded so fantastic that I had to tell someone. So I filmed a 60-second

• On Sept. 13, 1814, Francis Scott Key pens a poem, which is later set to the music of a popular English drinking tune called “To Anacreon in Heaven.” In 1931 the song becomes America’s national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” • On Sept. 10, 1897, a 25-year-old London taxi driver named George Smith becomes the first person ever arrested for drunk driving. A true breath test didn’t come along until 1931 with a device called the Drunkometer. It involved a blow-up balloon and a tube filled with a purple fluid (potassium permanganate and sulfuric acid). Alcohol on a person’s breath changed the color of the fluid from purple to yellow; the quicker the change, the drunker the person. • On Sept. 14, 1927, dancer Isadora Duncan is strangled in Nice, France, when the enormous silk scarf she is wearing gets tangled in the rear hubcaps of her open car. The scarf wound around the axle, tightening around Duncan’s neck and dragging her from the car. • On Sept. 16, 1940, the first peacetime draft in the history of the United States is imposed. Registration of men between the ages of 21 and 36 began exactly one month later. There were some 20 million eligible young men -- 50 percent were rejected in the first year for health reasons or illiteracy. • On Sept. 12, 1953, Massachusetts Sen. John F. Kennedy, the future 35th president of the United States, marries Jacqueline Bouvier in Newport, R.I. Seven years later, the couple would become the youngest president and first lady in American history. • On Sept. 15, 1978, boxer Muhammad Ali defeats Leon Spinks at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans to win the world heavyweight boxing title for the third time in his career, the first fighter ever to do so. Ali left the sport permanently in 1981. • On Sept. 11, 1985, Cincinnati Reds playermanager Pete Rose gets the 4,192nd hit of his career, breaking Ty Cobb’s major league record for career hits. Rose was a folk hero in Cincinnati, a homegrown talent known as “Charlie Hustle” for his relentless work ethic. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

video and posted it on the web. I got 1,000 hits on Youtube in less than a day.” • The video became a bit of a viral sensation, and Badynee was asked by “Good Morning, America” for the right to show the video on their program. • Almost immediately after the video was shown on television, Badynee received requests to buy a “Bogdon Box.” He brought in his uncle and a couple of acoustic technicians to help him perfect it. Once they got the instrument exactly right, they began selling it on Ebay to a huge response. Hundreds were sold, almost as quickly as they could turn them out. • Badynee took the profits from those sales to protect and patent his invention. Eventually, his belief in his invention paid off in praise, when his bass was given a rave review in “Bass Player Magazine.” • A well-known invention marketed via television infomercials is the Snuggie. This blanket with sleeves solved a problem most people didn’t even know they had. • Since it covers your entire body but keeps your hands free thanks to its armholes, Snuggie wearers stay warm while still retaining the ability to take sip of their drink, change the channel or turn the page of a book. • The Snuggie was introduced in 2008 and was an instant success. By 2009, 20 million Snuggies had been sold. But there was actually a similar product already on the market, The Slanket, invented by Gary Clegg when he was a college freshman. • Because it is difficult to patent a textile product, Clegg had not patented The Slanket, so the makers of the Snuggie were able to make and market their product legally. • Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but it’s a safe bet that Clegg felt something other than pride when he first saw the Snuggie.

RODENT WOES Q: Late one night last week, my husband jumped up and said he’d seen a mouse scurry under one of the kitchen cabinets. I put a sticky trap down near the cabinet he mentioned, but haven’t caught a mouse yet. Any ideas? -- Sherry in Salem, N.H. A: Mice can be pretty good at avoiding certain traps, which, as you’ve found, is pretty frustrating. And if your husband has seen one, there’s bound to be more -- especially at this time of year, as wild creatures begin to look for places to hunker down for the winter. If you have a professional pest-control service that visits routinely (twice per year, at least), be sure to mention the possible infestation. The serviceperson likely will put down more traps and ask you to call them if a mouse is caught. Meantime, look for signs of mouse infestation. You likely will find their droppings in areas of the kitchen where humans don’t spend a lot of time, such as the corners of lower kitchen cabinets. You may see gnawed-on areas of the lower walls, baseboards or cabinets, or the sawdust remainders of such gnawing. House mice also have a musky odor; if you notice this in a particular area of the house, a nest may be nearby. Sticky traps, or glue traps, are cost effective and quick to set up -- you simply peel back the plastic covering and set the trap face up against a wall in an area where mouse activity is indicated or has been noticed. You also can try the more traditional “snap trap,”

which can stay in place longer and be reused. Set more traps than you think you’ll need, but make sure that they’re out of reach of pets and children. Bait traps with favorite mice items like a tiny bit of cheese or a dot of peanut butter. Another method is poisoned bait. This is sold in several forms, but one less accessible method is to purchase sealed pellets. These are poison pellets inside a sealed container that you place inside the wall or in a location pets can’t reach but mice can. The mice chew through the container to eat the pellet. To further reduce a mouse infestation, clean out cabinets that contain food items as well as your pantry. Inspect containers for evidence of gnawing or other access by mice, and discard affected containers. Place grains and flour in glass or food-grade plastic containers. Store boxed items off the floor and away from known mice access points. Locate and seal holes in your home’s walls, exterior and interior, that are larger than 1/4 inch. For holes that can’t or should not be sealed (like soffit air vents), make sure that screens and similar barriers are in place and in good repair. HOME TIP: Have a large gap around a pipe or a hole that you don’t have time to seal up? Tuck a piece of steel wool into the gap and tack in place with a bit of caulk.

Sofa Shopping Having provided some fun facts about those marvelous inventions sold on TV, it makes sense to share a little interesting information about the evolution of home shopping. For anyone who has ever enjoyed the luxury of finding a good deal from the comfort of their couch, here’s how it all came about. • The first example of “home shopping” as we know it was offered by The Home Shopping Network (or HSN). HSN started with humble beginnings in 1977 in Clearwater, Florida, by selling 112 electronic can openers on an AM radio station. This turned into a regular radio shopping show called “Suncoast Bargaineers.” • In 1981, the televised “Home Shopping Channel” was launched as a Tampa Bay local access cable channel. In 1985, it began broadcasting nationwide, 24-hours a day on cable and local TV. • Today, The Home Shopping Network is a $3 billion retailer that stretches across multiple channels and includes online, mobile, catalog and brick and mortar stores. It offers products 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 364 days a year. • HSN now reaches 96 million homes, and its online site is one of the top 10 e-commerce sites on the web. Its catalog division, Cornerstone, distributes 275 million catalogs a year. That’s a lot of postage! • In 2010, legendary rocker Rod Stewart was the first popular performer to debut a new album on a shopping channel. He debuted his CD “Fly Me To The Moon” with a live, one-hour concert on HSN. It was the highest viewed program in the history of the network and broke all its music sales records. • The other prominent shopping channel is QVC. It was founded in 1986 by Joseph Segel, founder of the Franklin Mint. Seasoned viewers of late-night TV commercials will recognize the Franklin Mint as the seller of commemorative plates, figurines, painted coins and other collectible items. • QVC’s first live broadcast was shot in a studio in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The company broke American business records for sales by a new public company. Part of its early success came through an exclusive agreement with Sears to sell their products on the air. • Showing the influence of home shopping as more than just niche programming, QVC reported record sales of T-shirts heralding “Dallas Cowboys 1994 Super Bowl Champs.” The network sold over 6,000 shirts in just the first few seconds after the game ended!

• In 1995, QVC’s success in home shopping was expressed by a few remarkable landmarks. In March of that year, they recorded over 250,000 phone calls in a single day. • It also shipped its 200 millionth package during March of that year, the equivalent of one package for every person in America at the time. In August of that year, QVC held a “Klondike Gold Rush Day,” where revenues topped $19 million dollars in 24 hours. • Today, QVC receives more than 181 million calls in the United States per year, and it ships about 166 million packages worldwide. Its reach is to more than 166 million homes, and sales recently topped $7 billion in a single year. F

SUNSET BOULEVARD By Samantha Weaver

• It was William E. Vaughan who made the following sage observation: “To err is human, but to really foul things up you need a computer.” • Those who study such things say that your brain can store 100 times as much information as a typical desktop computer. • In 1930, United Airlines began using the aviation industry’s first stewardesses. To qualify for the position, applicants had to be registered nurses. • George Washington, Dolley Madison, Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton helped to found this country, but that wasn’t all they had in common; they were also all big fans of eating ice cream. • If you ever hear an orangutan belch, you’d better watch out. That’s a warning sign that you’re encroaching on his territory. • When Andrew Jackson was running for president in 1828, an opponent called him a jackass. Instead of being offended, Jackson embraced the epithet, using the image of a donkey in campaign materials to represent his stubborn refusal to knuckle under to big business. Later, Thomas Nash, a political cartoonist in New York, started using the donkey to represent the Democratic Party as a whole. • If you’re a well-traveled person, you might have noticed that the average woman in Scandinavia is taller than the average man in Asia. • Only 12 people have walked on the surface of the moon. • The framework for the Statue of Liberty was built by Gustave Eiffel, who later became famous for building Paris’ iconic tower. • If you’re stopping at a fast-food restaurant for lunch today, you might want to consider the following: It takes a whopping 1,500 gallons of water to produce an average fast-food meal. Thought for the Day: “The more information you get, the less fantasy you have.” -- Andy Warhol (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

As one of Los Angeles’ most popular entertainment districts and tourist destinations, Sunset Boulevard is home to a variety of trendy restaurants, nightclubs, attractions, shopping spots and much more. • Sunset Boulevard is an approximately 22-mile-long, immensely famous street beginning in downtown Los Angeles and continuing west toward the Pacific. It eventually becomes Sunset Strip as it runs through Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Santa Monica and ends at the ocean. • The boulevard is a direct link between the lower-income areas of Hollywood and the lush, incredibly upscale ones. As the road continues west, it undergoes several transformations. It gives tourists the ability to experience both sides of Hollywood and is rich with sights and attractions all along the way. • It encompasses a surplus of must-see sites including Echo Park, Hollywood Memorial Park, Paramount Studios, KTLA Studios, Fox Network, Columbia Square and the iconic Sunset Grill made famous by Don Henley’s song. • It is at least four lanes its entire duration, and thanks to its curvy, winding route and frequent traffic congestion, car accidents are prevalent. • It is sometimes referred to as “Guitar Row,” as it is home to a wide selection of guitar stores and music-industry-related buildings. • One of the most famous nightclubs in the ‘40s and ‘50s was the glamorous Earl Carroll Theatre on Sunset, said to host the most beautiful girls in the world. After it was sold, it functioned as Moulin Rouge for a number of years. • Hollywood High School, built in 1904, is on Sunset Boulevard and has a reputation for being one of the most beautiful schools in the state. Many famous entertainment personalities are among its graduates. • The iconic thoroughfare inspired the popular 1950s feature film “Sunset Boulevard,” starring William Holden and Gloria Swanson. There was also a 1993 musical named “Sunset Boulevard” that starred Glen Close. • Sunset Boulevard has been highlighted on TV shows, album covers and in song names, including the 1960s TV series “77 Sunset Strip” and the 1990s’ “Below Sunset.” • The best known section of Sunset Boulevard is Sunset Strip, which before its glory days, was nothing more than scattered buildings and nurseries. Once the movie industry took off, studios and glamorous houses began popping up everywhere. It was once called Beverly Boulevard. • Sunset Strip is about 1.5 miles long. It got its name because many Los Angeles County workers referred to it as “that strip” for years. • Sunset Boulevard can brag that it has hosted most of the early motion picture companies; the area near the intersection of Gower Street was famous for the many Westerns made there. However, this section was also known as “Poverty Row,” as many of the films made there failed. • Although many film companies popped up, the smaller ones tended to end quickly — some of them included California Film Co., Century Film Co., H. Paulis Studio and Francis Ford Studio. • A few film companies were able to survive; some of these include Warner Brothers Studios, Christie Film Co. and Columbia Studios. • Today, visitors from all over the world come to Sunset Boulevard to get a glimpse of what makes Tinsel Town glitter and glow.

Andalusian triplets in “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted,” will play opera diva Maria Cal- and blonde, she didn’t succeed. Every time

HOLLYWOOD -- Robert Pattinson’s breakup with his “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart overshadowed the news that he’s planning to fill the shoes of movie legend Peter O’Toole in the role that defined his career, T.E. Lawrence in “Lawrence of Arabia.” In l962, historians had problems with the original script by Robert Bolt. Considered one of the greatest films of all time, it won the Best Picture Oscar, but not for Bolt, who had to wait until “Dr. Zhivago” and “A Man for All Seasons” to win his two. The film, not a remake, is called “Queen of the Desert.” O’Toole had strikingly bleached blond hair and came off a bit gay, which makes us wonder how Pattinson and director Werner Herzog will choose to play him in their film. Nicole Kidman was announced some time ago to play Grace Kelly, the actress who became a princess, in “Grace of Monaco.” Now Tim Roth has been chosen to play her husband, Prince Rainer III. The film will show how Grace Kelly skillfully maneuvered her prince through his political troubles with French Prime Minister Charles De Gaulle. Spanish actress Paz Vega, who voiced the

las, and Frank Langella has a supporting role. Roth, one of the busiest actors working today, has completed “Arbitrage” with Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon, due out Sept. 14, and “The Absinthe Drinkers” with “Twilight Saga” star Peter Facinelli, John Hurt and Keith Carradine. No release date yet. Roth is currently shooting “Broken” with Cillian Murphy.

“Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig teamed Melissa McCarthy (Oscar nominated for that film) and Oscar winner Sandra Bullock as a Boston cop and an FBI agent, respectively, who attempt to take down a Russian mobster in his film “The Heat.” Feig played science teacher Eugene Pool on “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” before receiving two directing Emmy nods for “Freaks and Geeks,” which he created, and three Emmy nods for “The Office.” Damian Bichir (Oscar nominated as Best Actor for “A Better Life” last year) and Michael Rapaport of “Boston Public” have joined them shooting on the streets of Boston. Miley Cyrus, in the news lately for her new hair-do, has been cast as the girlfriend of Angus T. Jones -- you know, the half man on “Two and a Half Men” -- which could become a recurring role for her. If she was trying to leave her Disney image behind by making her “do” short

LONG, COLD NIGHTS NOT SHORT ON FUN

The days are getting shorter, and that means one thing: Cold weather is coming. Before winter sets in, plan what you and your family will do for entertainment when the nights are long and you’re stuck indoors. The key is to not spend much money. --Board games and cards: check charity shops for games in good condition. Open the boxes and count the pieces to be sure nothing is missing. Look for jigsaw puzzles that have a note attached saying all the pieces are there. Avoid games that take batteries. Borrow a card-game book from the library, or see Pagat.com for international games. --Take your children to the library after school one day a week to check out books.

--Have an Art Night. Before all the school supplies are gone from stores, stock up on crayons, paints and markers at low prices. Add stacks of construction paper and glue for the younger ones. Check craft and fabric stores for modeling clay that can be baked in the oven, and create holiday ornaments or pottery gifts. Make wallets from duct tape. Create holiday cards out of last year’s cards and construction paper. --Make one night a week Kids Cooking Night. Look online or at the library for easy recipes. Have them plan in advance what they’ll fix, and be sure the ingredients are on hand. Bake bread together and freeze the extra.
