If you, like me, enjoy learning new and interesting historical facts and trivia, this blog post is for you. When I take a break from selling houses in San Jose, Cupertino and Santa Clara, Calif., I love learning new facts. Here are four fascinating facts from this date in history, August 11.

         3114 BC – The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, used by several pre-Columbian Mesoamerican civilizations, notably the Mayans, begins.

         1929  Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio.

         1934 – The first civilian prisoners arrive at the soon-to-be-infamous Federal prison on Alcatraz Island.

         1942 – Silver screen actress Hedy Lamarr and composer George Antheil receive a patent for a Frequency-hopping spread spectrum communication system that later became the basis for modern technologies in wireless telephones, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. At the time of its invention, it was deemed so vital to national defense that government officials forbid the  publication the details of how it worked. Both were inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.

Morning Michelle.

Hmm, I'm going to look up the one about Hedy, but I think I've wrote about that before.  If not I know it will be in the future
