1) Featured Collectors Club
Highlighting clubs of interest to collectors.
Antique & Art Glass Salt Shaker Collectors Society
A society formed for collectors of antique and art glass salt shakers. The society's goals are to promote fellowship among members, share collecting experiences, and promote the education and collecting of antique and art glass salt shakers.
In the few short years of its existence, this group has developed as one of the most "friendly" organizations of its kind. It has also established the reputation of a group readily sharing information between members and the public.
For more information, click here:

2) We want your stories. Do you have any stories related to your adventures collecting? Share them with us. Put together a few choice words and email them to me at Phil@TIAS.com
Come on, folks, it’s TV!!!!!! The Pickers only crawl over piles of rusted junk after they set up their cameras for the best angle. Do you think they just drive down the dirt road and happen to “find” all of that great stuff??? Don’t you think their production people have been out scouting for stuff for weeks before they drive up in their old van?? It’s about as real as the rest of reality TV. If you think American Idol, the Big Loser and all the others are “real” then I guess you believe the Pickers show, too. I’m just surprised that the Pickers show is not on TLC like the rest of them, but I guess it kind of goes with Billy the Exterminator. Patty
Hi, I have to add one more opinion regarding TV shows on collecting. I love Pickers, and all the other shows that educate me about antiques and collectibles. However, there is a show that I feel sometimes rip people off. And that show is Pawn Stars. I realize they have employees and overhead, etc,, but I have seen them knowingly take advantage of people. Of course, there are those Pawn Star customers who should have done some research and probably didn't, but I have also seen those who knew how much they should get and the Pawn Stars wouldn't budge on their price. Nobody has mentioned Pawn Stars in any of their comments. Would anyone else like to comment? Kathy Adams - Indiana
Hi, Phil: I have watched all episodes of this creative and enjoyable show. Mike, Frank and Danielle are intelligent, well-spoken and entertaining on the show. I am not interested in everything they like, but I do appreciate their attitudes and the way the talk to people. Have they "ripped someone off"? No. I haven't seen much that I would want, or even want to sell, but they have treated everyone fairly.
I'll bet your pro-to-con ratio of viewers is 99-to-1. I know you can't piss off readers, but frankly, those who oppose the show don't know what they're talking about, and they should just shut up. Sincerely, Lisa - Lakewood, CO

My daughter and son-in-law went into labor with my Grandson at around 10:30 on December 16th, so my ex-husband and I both convened on their home to “watch” our 31/2 year old granddaughter, Georgie – with orders to not bring her to the hospital until her mom was almost ready to deliver so Georgie would be the first to meet her new brother. When Georgie got up the next morning, she was excited that Papa and Grammie were both there to play with her while Baby Brother was getting ready to come. I brought a box of cookie mix to make since Georgie loves to help bake. Her Papa discouraged making the cookies and tried to say couldn’t do it while we were awaiting the all important phone call. Exasperated, Georgie looked at him and said, “Yes we can Papa – the Huskies aren’t playing!” Looks like we have a future University of Washington Husky in the making…. We got the cookies mixed up and then headed out so Georgie could meet the new baby. Georgie is delighted with her brother, who is now 10 weeks old. Karen Landwehr

In a small bowl, combine garlic, cumin, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar and Tabaco.
Grill cutlets 4 - 5 inches above medium coals for 15 - 20 minutes until cooked through. Turn and baste 2 - 3 times with sauce. Gail Dengler
