Cory's People: Great sisterhood is turning heads

The answer: 26, 25, 23, 17, 22 and 22. The question? What are the winning Superlotto numbers? Perhaps, but unlikely. Actually, it’s the number of years each of the women have been cutting hair at Turning Heads Beauty Salon in Crescent City.

Antique show looking for participants in Calfornia

Creators of the antique archeology show, American Pickers, are searching for interesting people with lots of interesting items. They will be in California in March.

American Pickers, which airs on the History Channel, follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz and explores the world of antique “picking.” Hitting back roads from coast to coast, Wolfe and Fritz comb junkyards, basements, garages and barns for unique items. 

According to the show’s creators, some of the items Wolfe and Fritz are hoping to buy include tin, wind-up and cast iron toys, pre-50s vending machines, pinball and slot machines, old movie posters, vintage movie memorabilia, vintage advertising items, taxidermy, pre-60s vintage diner collectibles, pre-60’s TV merchandise, mobster memorabilia, Civil War antiques and more. 

Wolfe and Fritz only pick from private collections, so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public.

Church Notebook: Resist tempatation to be unkind when others are mean to you

A couple days ago, cleaning out my purse, just about everything slid out of my wallet.

For the umpteenth time I thought about those fancy new ones that are supposed to hold everything but the kitchen sink, and keep those characters at bay who can steal your credit card information. Definitely better than the homemade one I carry, but it serves it’s purpose, this one of yarn and plastic canvas.
