Odds and Ends by Leann Harris

I am a geek and readily admit it. The other night on the ACH channel they had the program What History Forgot, and talked about actress Heddy Lamar and what a genesis she was. During World War II, Lamarr and composer George Antheil developed a radio guidance system for Allied torpedoes, which used spread spectrum and frequency hopping technology to defeat the threat of jamming by the Axis powers.
I was so awed by this information, and told my husband, thinking to surprise him. Yeah, he knew. He was in the army and was a munitions officer and a physicist. I didn't stump him. But he still can't find yeast in the kitchen cabinet.

The fact that he might be looking for yeast is amazing to me. My husband has never made anything in the kitchen that required baking soda or baking powder....and definitely not anything with yeast! :)
