Reader's Exchange: Add to fire, police uniform patch collection

It is always so interesting to hear about the neat things people collect. Bob in Citrus County is a retired Washington, D.C., firefighter, and over the years he has collected more than 3,000 fire and police uniform patches. He is always looking to add to that collection, so if anyone out there would like to trade patches with him, or give him any unwanted ones, give him a call at (352) 527-1557.

Can anyone help Marie of St. Petersburg relive her fond memories of Hawaii in the 1950s and '60s? She had filmed herself and her family having a wonderful time in paradise, and now she would like to view those home movies again. The only problem is, it has been so long since she used a VCR that she no longer remembers how to use it. She is hoping to find someone out there who can help her with instructions so that she can play those movies again. If you can, please call Marie at (727) 526-0238.
