DEAR HELAINE AND JOE: Hello, we have a haberdashery case with all the original curved glass, all the original hardware and fixtures -- but it's missing its shelves. Can you tell me more about its history and what would be its value? If you could help me find some information about the shelves I would like to replace or refabricate them.

Otus the Head Cat: We must stand for something or fall for anything

DEAR CAR TALK: We had a new neighbor move into our neighborhood and homeowners association a couple of years ago. We all have our eccentricities, but this guy has a really odd habit, and I'm hoping you can help answer a question about it.

DEAR READERS: Tomorrow is Father's Day, a special time to acknowledge dads and their influence on our lives. Take the time to thank your dad. You can give him a necktie, of course, but a heartfelt letter can convey your true feelings.

Happy birthday. It's the ones who don't seek validation who tend to get it. The principle works in reverse, too. This year you don't seek attention, approval, respect, affection or remuneration -- and yet you get all of it. August brings a notable award. Financial highs are July, January and February. Vows and deals go down in October.

Time was, the release of a new Pixar film was more than a blessed cinematic event, it was a revelation: Their initial stretch run, beginning roughly with the release of the first Toy Story in 1995 and running through Toy Story 3 in 2010 was pretty unassailable -- with only the rare desultory misfire (Cars) to besmirch their otherwise pristine track record.

Director X's Superfly is supposedly a remake of the 1972 Blaxploitation hit Super Fly, but frequently seems to be more like the work of one of its producers, Joel Silver (the Lethal Weapon movies, Roadhouse, The Matrix, Swordfish, et, al.), who, in the '80s and '90s provided moviegoers a steady supply of explosions, gunplay and female nudity.
