--Another Story--

My mother saved all of my grandmotherís papers. Grandma Ann was quite an accomplished business person for a woman in the 1950ís due to her husband suffering a severe stroke and leaving her with 5 children to support. She always impressed upon us grandchildren to never let a possible learning moment pass and when she shared her ride home from the National Convention of the National Council of Catholic Women (Thursday, November 3, 1960) and was seated next to a humble woman known simply as Mother Theresa she visited as long as she could with her. Grandma Ann had heard her speak that Thursday morning in Nov. 1960 and asked for her autograph. Mother Theresa autographed her 4 page typewritten copy of the speech she gave in Las Vegas as well as her picture that had been included in the program information. She told my Grandma that this was her first trip on an airplane and her first trip to the United States as well! Little did anyone know that this loving, selfless woman would later become a true Saint.

Could you help me to know how I would go about getting something like this appraised? Patti

--Another Story--

I have to respond to the thread of the removal of our TV as I was one of the original ones that have never looked back after pitching ours in 1987 or around there. Where do we get our news Gina? How about where do we get everything? The internet! The TV is thought to be the expert on any and everything, this is just not the case except on how to waste your day, not have real relationships & how to become an afraid elderly person! Do you remember how the most coveted news program was busted for lying? Wasn't it Dan Rather? I am sure we don't know the half of it! I can find any late breaking news on anything I want & much quicker & FOR FREE on the web.....I can access a world of knowledge, a world of shopping from my home & I can play games with the world if I so choose! But you want to know what? I don't choose, most of the news is depressing, I don't care to know it, who cares that homosexuals can marry now in California? Delete. Why do I want to fill my day with this dribble? I would rather spend my day doing something more productive with real people & think for MYSELF rather than what hollywood/liberals wants me to think. I have a file cabinet full of published articles of studies done to prove that the TV ruins children's attention span, school academics, contributes to them to being overweight by the continual advertising to eat while sitting etc...you get the idea! But to each his own & we have never regretted the disposal of our TV. But I do have to admit, I do not know who some of todays hottest stars are~~guess I will have to suffer there. Guess I can just read a book!!

My youngest granddaughter is 2 1/2. This last April my daughters were taking her to a local rodeo. Gd kept telling her mom that she liked cowboys! They were watching the parade and a friend who was sitting with them with her son kept trying to get her to talk to her. But she just kept hiding behind mom and not speaking to her. Well, a cowboy in the parade stopped ant was talking to grand daughter. She started batting her eyes to him and was talking to him. A 2 1/2 yr old flirting with a cowboy! Well she was walking into the rodeo grounds with mom, dad and auntie, the cowboys were warming up for the first event and she looked at her mom and said '' I love cowboys mom, can I take one home with me?'' The adults looked at each other in shock then her mom told her ''Not until your 30!'' She said '' Ok mom!'' We all had a laugh about that! As they say '' Out of the mouth of babies!'' Margaret

10) A vintage recipe request from a reader
As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you had this recipe.
When I was in college about 50 years ago (or longer) one of my roommates father had a restaurant in New York City. When she went home on week-ends she would bring back a one gallon jar of pizza steak. It was so good to this southern girl. I would love to know how to make it. It was not a thin steak - more like cubed steak. Can you help? Jean
If you can help this reader with this recipe, please forward it to recipes@tias.com . If you have a vintage recipe request send it to recipes@tias.com and we might just publish it here.
