Most shows, all you get is a ticket stub for your scrapbook. With Barry Manilow, you’ll always have Paris. The show Manilow calls the “most romantic” of his career has found an ideal home at the Paris Théâtre at Paris Las Vegas. Along with his own catalog of love songs (“Mandy,” “I Write the Songs,” “Ready to Take a Chance Again,” “Could It Be Magic”), Manilow performs covers of a few of his favorite romantic ballads by other songwriters.

Social media start-up Pinterest has raised $100 million in a recent financing round led by a Japanese online retailer, increasing the estimated value of the virtual scrapbooking company to $1.5 billion. Japanese e-commerce firm Rakuten Inc. led the fundraising for the Palo Alto company, which is now ranked by Experian as the third-most-popular social network behind Twitter and Facebook. Pinterest users check out thousands of images collected by fellow users and "pinned up" on their online scrapbooks.

A note to tell you how much I enjoyed reading "Hind Site, Grand Central's Grand Past." Years ago, I managed Grand Central Aircraft Co., which included the terminal and airport. Had I known you were about to write the column I could have loaned you my scrapbook. Now your column is to be included as the final entry. FRANK L. ARGALL Sherman Oaks

I was delighted to read about Charlie Lord by his daughter, M.G. Lord ("Rocket Man, Rocket Girl," Jan. 30). Charlie and I became acquainted in the mid-'70s and bowled on the same team for years. He was so proud of M.G., and before she went off to Yale he came by the house to introduce her to my children. He kept us advised of her progress and her jobs after graduation. I am sorry that she didn't realize until late in life how very proud her father was of her. Before her clippings reached his scrapbook, they were shared with his many friends.

When it comes to finding a way to watch his daughter play softball, not even the sky's the limit for Jay Smith. He attends every one of El Camino Real High's games, which wouldn't be unusual except that Smith flies in from San Jose each time. "It's not easy to take a half-day off from work, to go fly there, and then rent a car and go to wherever the game is," Smith said. "But I would never, ever regret any of that." It means a lot to his daughter, Morgan Smith, a senior first baseman.

Back in another era, when Harlem night life was famous for high style, hot music and classy dancing, the community was a magnet for uptown entertainers and downtown cafe society. Louis and Bessie, Duke and Lena, Fred and Adele--they all congregated there; so did Cotton Club showgirl Ora Hines, who chronicled those flashy years in her personal scrapbook. Now her grandson, Maurice Hines, has borrowed that scrapbook and used it as the story line that shapes his dance musical, "Harlem Suite," opening Sunday at Hollywood's Pantages Theatre.

It was just after dinner on a school night sandwiched between the first round and semifinals of the Southern California Regional Division II boys' basketball playoffs. Karen Miller slid to the edge of the couch in her Del Mar condominium and enthusiastically opened a scrapbook filled with memories of son Courtie's basketball career at Torrey Pines High School. Courtie sat quietly in the easy chair, watching her show a visitor some clips and pictures she had collected.

The seven actors who played the Von Trapp children in Robert Wise's beloved 1965 Oscar-winning musical"The Sound of Music" are as close today as they were while they were in production in 1964 in Salzburg, Austria. Though they live all over the globe, they have always been there for one another. A decade ago they rushed to be at the side of Heather Menzies (Louisa) when her husband, actor Robert Urich, died of cancer. And Menzies is the godmother to Kym Karath's (Gretl) special needs 20-year-old son, Eric.

To orchestrate her wedding next month, Dara Weiner's biggest helper isn't her party planner or her devoted fiance - it's the Pinterest website that now dominates the time she spends online. Weiner browses the site checking out thousands of photos collected by users and "pinned up" on their online scrapbooks. When she likes an image of a table setting, a dress or a bouquet, Weiner will earmark the photo to pin up on her own Pinterest page to keep for inspiration. "I've planned 70% of my wedding around pictures I've seen on Pinterest," said Weiner, 40, of Newport Beach.

If, as William Carlos Williams wrote, "The pure products of America / go crazy," where does that leave Tim Burton, a pure product not just of America but also of Southern California, land's end of our national phantasmagoria? Hollywood, maybe, where Burton ? born in Burbank, raised on TV and the films of Ray Harryhausen, educated at the California Institute of the Arts ? landed in the late 1970s. Or London, where he now lives with the actress Helena Bonham Carter and their two kids.

Before I explain how I happened to be in Hugh Hefner's bedroom last week, let me start at the beginning. I bumped into L.A. City Councilman Tom LaBonge at the supermarket recently and asked if he'd had any clue that Hefner was going to save the day a couple of weeks ago by donating the last $900,000 needed to purchase the peak surrounding the Hollywood sign and keep it from being plundered by developers. LaBonge said no, but he hated to think what would have happened without Hefner's generosity.

They called her "labelwhore," this 28-year-old rising star in the world of scrapbooking, with a silver stud in her lip and a tattoo in Latin on her left forearm: "Art is long, life is short." Before the Internet bullies bashed her and judges revoked her title in the scrapbooking Hall of Fame, Kristina Contes basked in a reputation built on making pages dedicated to her designer handbags, her Converse sneakers and the word "dude."

Re "The New Crop of Scrapbookers" [by Charlie Amter, April 6]: I am surprised you gave little mention to Creative Memories, which started the whole scrapbook-making industry in 1987. The company now has 90,000 consultants in the U.S. and other countries. The company donates major dollars to the Alzheimer's Assn. and consultants donate time and money for its annual Memory Walk.

Among the sports collectibles offered in the Upper Deck Authenticated catalogue is the airplane formerly used by the Kings. The price: $5 million. "Now your company, family or just 70 of your best friends can enjoy the same level of comfort and relaxation that helped (Wayne) Gretzky and the Kings perform to their highest potential," reads the advertisement for the Boeing 727. "The jet is signed by the team. A must-have for the ultimate Kings fan!" Signed by the team? At $5 million, it's a steal.

From its very beginnings, the Smithsonian Institution has taken and collected photographs. Masses of them. John Brown's steely eyes were captured in a daguerreotype by August Washington in 1846. A now-extinct Tasmanian hyena, sleek and striped, attracted photographer Thomas Smillie in 1891. Harry Bowden went to Jackson Pollock's chaotic studio in 1949 and found an unintentional abstract of cans and brushes.
