Mustard Seed Dreams

Mustard Seed Dreams

Today, many of us have a day off from work to honor the 4th of July holiday. And the 4th of July is a day to honor all that is American - and we usually do it over hamburgers and hotdogs and lots of ketchup and mustard. Jennifer Connor is hoping that you’ll be eating lots and lots of mustard. Jennifer is one of those people who’s trying to grow a new business in the midst of what everyone agrees has been a deep recession. Jennifer tells Dick Gordon about her bumpy ride from college kid to entrepreneur - and the divine sign she received just when she needed it.

Finding Photos

Dennis Reed was an amateur photographer in Los Angeles 30 years ago, when he stumbled on the work of a group of Japanese art photographers from the 1920's and 30's. At the time their work was widely published, but when World War II broke out, the men were sent to internment camps and had to leave their photographs behind - stored, hidden or abandoned. With the instincts and determination of a private investigator, Dennis located a handful of survivors, and the families of others. He's now mounted an exhibition of their work.
