A Florida woman was charged yesterday in federal court here with conspiring in 1998 to sell "kits" on the Internet that could be used to make one of the so-called "date-rape" drugs. Marcella Glass, 25, of Port St. Lucie, has agreed to plead guilty at a later date to a single felony charge involving sales of GHB without warnings of the danger involved in the drug's use. The drug, gamma hydroxy butyrate, has been linked by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to more than 600 overdoses and at least 32 deaths and some 20 sexual assaults nationwide in the past decade.

The dented mess kit of a soldier from Roxborough who fought in a bloody battle in Normandy came home Tuesday, 72 years after it was lost on French soil. About 40 relatives of Hudson Leroy Funk, including great-grandchildren and his 95-year-old brother, hugged and proudly passed the mess kit around a kitchen table in Medford after hearing how a World War II memorabilia collector had found it last fall, using a metal detector. Funk, who lost his legs later, in a battle in Luxembourg in November 1944, had carved his initials - HLF - into the metal container.

D EAR ABBY: Making wise decisions about what to do with your money can be tough. Insurance policies, mortgages and investment plans come with so much terminology and fine print. The phone calls, emails and mail offers for products and services are endless, and some are downright dishonest. It seems as if there's a scammer - or an opportunity to make the wrong financial decision - around every corner. To help your readers sort out the offers for products and financial services that come their way, USA.gov, the federal government's official website, has created a free Financial Self-Defense Kit. It contains a dozen publications that explain how to make solid investment, shopping and credit decisions.

Media resident Tom Long had gone through several careers before he took up photography. Long was an Air Force mechanic, a sailor in the Merchant Marine, and a securities salesman before 1984, when he opened up the Swarthmore Photography Center on Chester Road in Swarthmore, taking portraits and passport photos, developing film and framing pictures. The picture framing was just a sideline to the photography business, but it led to Long's development of a new kind of picture frame bracket, and a new addition to his list of accomplishments.

Have you got your kit yet? You don't want to start conversing without the government's guidance. And conversing about the topic the government has selected for us is, according to Sheldon Hackney, chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, something we all "have a responsibility" to do. Hackney, former president of the University of Pennsylvania, may sound slightly hectoring but that is just because he wants to be helpful. He believes we need help if we are to converse properly about "American Pluralism and Identity," so the NEH has produced a kit of "materials - conversation starters, book and film lists, documents, essays - to help spark the individual conversations.

The first time you pick up a camcorder, anything you do with it seems nothing less than magical. Capturing everyday life as it unfolds is so exciting that it can blind you to an essential fact: Until it's arranged into some kind of structure, this cinema verite stuff is boring. To prove this to yourself, try sitting through someone else's home videos. Do home movies have to consist of frozen smiles, waving hands and pointless greetings? Not according to Hollywood Make a Movie in Toms River, N.J., where entrepreneur John Marco has devised do-it-yourself movie-production kits consisting of scripts, title sheets, props and audio effects that give you the rudiments of a film short.

If only we could clone Norm Abram just before Sukkoth. That's the weeklong Jewish harvest festival, starting at sunset Wednesday, that's traditionally celebrated by spending time outdoors in a sukkah, a makeshift hut symbolizing the temporary shelters used by the ancient Israelites during their flight from Egypt. Building such a hut would be child's play for the master carpenter. But even with a fraction of his skill, who's got the time? No sweat, as Ron and Abby Pete of Chestnut Hill quickly learned.

Gaby Rochino knew she wasn't the only Rowan University student struggling to get through a particularly difficult engineering class - "I'd study nine hours a night and I'd still get a C on a quiz" - but she still felt alone. "Imagine sitting in a classroom, and nobody in your classroom looks like you. Rowan itself is very un-diverse, so mostly everyone around me was a Caucasian male," said Rochino, 21, of Cherry Hill. "It's just devastating looking around the room, thinking, 'Maybe I'm not cut out for this, maybe I'm not made for this, maybe girls can't do engineering,' " she said.

Cake in a box, updated and excellent Remember Caviar Assouline? The founder of that now-closed specialty food retailer, Joel Assouline, did his best to keep his daughter away from the food biz. But it may be a good thing Agathe Assouline-Lichten didn't listen. Her New York company, Red Velvet, has joined the rising online "meal-kit" sector pioneered by titans like Blue Apron, but with a special focus on desserts. And based on this excellent pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting and spiced pepitas, she's onto something.

Then it's off to work for eight to 10 hours. Evenings are filled with work-related soirees that involve cocktails and photo shoots in front of step-and-repeats more likely to make their way to social media before I make my way home, which sometimes is after 9 p.m. So I need clothes that both complement my curves and feel like pajamas.

Miss You Already is Beaches for the 21st century, although this Drew Barrymore-Toni Collette tearjerker is far less likely to become a touchstone of chick flickdom, and there is no "Wind Beneath My Wings" to soar up the charts. R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion," which Miss You Already's stars wail together in a giddy burst of '90s nostalgia, will have to do. Barrymore's Jess, an American who grew up in London, and Collette's Milly have been best friends since school days, bonding over boys and music and Wuthering Heights.

It's a pregnancy test that is biodegradable and can be flushed down the toilet. Bethany Edwards, CEO and co-founder of LIA Diagnostics, hopes her credit-card-sized device will become a force in the vast pregnancy home test market and be ready for sale online by the end of 2016. "Pregnancy test kits are one-time use and made of plastic so they aren't environmentally friendly," said Edwards, 30. "There's also no privacy in the current test kits as they can easily be discovered in the trash.
