The Stamp Collecting Report, I'm Lloyd de Vries

It's not official, but it's reported that those are some of
the 15 subjects for the Celebrate the Century stamps for the
1920s. Those stamps aren't coming out until May.  Other
subjects include Charles Lindbergh, Prohibition, the Four
Horsemen of Notre Dame football and Jazz.  You'll find the
complete list of 15 on the Internet at

Next weekend in Houston, the American Philatelic Society
will present one of the bigger stamp shows of the year,
AmeriStamp.  Show director Ken Martin says it'll include
many exhibits, a large kids area, dozens of dealers from
six countries, and a stamp fortune teller.  What's that?

"I don't know completely myself yet either, but there's
oing to be a person who's a fortune teller and who's going
to predict your future related to stamp collecting."

AmeriStamp runs Friday through Sunday at Houston's Brown
Convention Center.  Admission is free.

And that's stamp collecting this week.
