other than considering, at a very young age, whether to submit to a bunny hug. or whether to subject your child to the ordeal, however cute, of sitting on his lap for auto photo op. wait, is he a she? in fact, long before it was a bunny, it was a hare, online you'll see all sorts of stories about how the easter hare goes way back to a pagan goddess whose name sounds like easter. doubtful. >> there's no evidence that it's true, it could be true, but a lot of things about that era could be true that we can't verify. >> the easter hare does appear to be german. the first known written reference to such an animal, 1682. >> it's a german book but written in latin and it's about

rob it basics a. female is a doe. a male is a buck. rob its are capable of breeding once a month, babies are called kits. at a show what looks like obsessive petting is grooming. no hair products allowed. just water. >> what variety? >> mike has been raising rabbits since 197. he even met his wife showing them. >> i've always lived on a farm. i do have three acres myself and a 350 hole rabbitry right now. >> he goes through a ton of feed a month and attends around 40 shows a year. >> are these any of them pets? >> all my animals are pets. i mean, we talk, we have a radio going on 24 hours a day for them.

9:16 am
>> she's about seven months old. she has a coat about stone eight inches long. a good quality english angora should grow one inch of wool each month. >> that's something compared to angelique's mother, franchesca, who holds the guinett world record for wool more than 14 inches long. eric stuart, executive director of the american rabbit breeders association raises french angoras. >> this is sunny she's just over three years old. >> and sells the wool to be spun into yarn for sweaters or scarfs. >> as you can see this is quiet, painless. >> which means giving his rabbits a hair cut three times a year. >> how much does this actually sell for? >> about $10 an ounce. >> wow. >> obviously a high maintenance breed.
9:17 am
be, stuart insists the lesson easter bunny. >> everyone wants a baby, everyone wants a little bunny. sounds like a wonderful gift to bring home to a family, but this is five to ten year commitment. you want to make certain that the family is prepared. >> so, instead of a real bunny in that easter basket, there's always the chocolate kind. u.s. candy companies produce more than 100 million of them every year. >> pauley: next --

>> pauley: and now a page from our sunday morning almanac. march 27, 1863. 153 years ago today, the day a motor car legend started its roll. for that was the day henry royce was born near peterborough, england. a gifted engineer, royce tried his happened at building his own
9:20 am
his car impressed a dealer named charles rolls, who agreed to sell as many of the cars as royce could build. and so was born the rolls royce. which went on to become the standard for automotive luxury. and though rolls and royce are both long gone, their car and its mystique lives on. >> its reputation won it a starring role in the 1946 movie snoot yellow rolls royce" with rex harrison as a fussy british lord to tries out the posh back seat and claims to find imperfections. >> i don't much care for the shape of the decanter. and the telephone is badly placed. >> beatle john lennon did the yellow rolls royce one better when he gave his car a custom paint job.

of the game. >> here if you want it, i'll give it to you. >> as mark phillips learned when he visited the rolls factory two years ago. >> the whims and wishes, desires of the wealthy know no bounds. >> pauley: not content with the usual handcrafted leather and burnished wood interiors, rolls buyers today are ordering and getting just about any feature imaginable. just one of the tycoons who have made china the leading market for rolls royces. speaking of green, he says he paid $1.8 million for his. but don't let the price tag discourage you. a so-called entry level rolls royce "ghost" can be yours for

brandon thinks hellmann's is heaven in a jar. that's because our ingredients come from... farmers committed to responsibly sourced oils... blended with ingredients like cage-free eggs. mmm. heaven. real ingredients. that's how we're working to bring out the best. before i had the shooting, burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain, these feet played shortstop in high school, learned the horn from my dad and played gigs from new york to miami. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda approved to treat this pain, from moderate to even severe diabetic nerve pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness,
9:24 am
don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and these feet would like to keep the beat going.

9:26 am
garage of p her pittsburgh, california, home. they're supplied by jelly belly which actually considers her its artist in residence. >> i never would have imagined i'd be any sort of artist much less jelly bean artist. >> it takes her about seven days to turn 12,000 jelly beans into a work of art. >> really the only question i have for you is how many do you eat? >> well, i've limited myself in the last couple of years to try all the new flavors. because they're so good that if i didn't have some sort of rule i'd just be in trouble. >> cummings is one of a handful of artists turning beans into beauty. jelly bean mosaics started in the 1980s. and were actually inspired by president ronald reagan's love for the candy.
9:27 am
>> his obsession motivated san francisco artist peter rocha to create this image which now hangs in the ronald reagan presidential library. cummings developed a taste for jelly beans in 2009 and has since created nearly 40 pieces. most of her work, appropriately, is displayed here at jelly belly headquarters in fairfield, california. >> when you walk in here nobody knows who you are. >> , no absolutely not. >> just lady with the red hair. >> i'm okay with that. >> collectors have developed a sweet tooth, some of her works have sold for thousands of dollars. and she gives new meaning to the term, performance art. >> very nice. very unique. >> here at chicago's comic and entertainment expo last week, she gave onlookers a sense of
9:28 am
she starts by creating an image with acrylic paint. and then using spray adhesive, she sticks on the beans one by one. >> using more than one different kind of blue or red create a sense of depth and three dimension even though it's two dimensional surface. more interesting to look at. >> along the way she's copied the works of thest masters, vangogh the starry night. with one major difference. >> huge history going back with oil painting and, you know, marble sculpture and there's these really, what i consider serious mediums. and this just isn't it. because it's, you know, you can't really mess up. >> you can't? >> no. well, you can always fix it. jelly beans you can eat your mistakes.
9:29 am
than that. >> pauley: still to come. preacher joel osteen. but first -- >> i get goose bumps just standing here thinking about --
9:30 am
9:31 am
packs a punch. >> it's "sunday morning" on cbs and here again is jane pauley. >> pauley: for the unenlightened that is john cena prevailing over "the edge" and "the big show" at the wrestlemania event back in 2009. this year bout of over the top staged wrestling is just one week off. and as rita braver explains there's most unusual tag team in command. >> over more than three decades, wrestlemania has become the super bowl of american wrestling. a day-long event featuring brawny, brawlers of both sexes
9:32 am
time, the success of wrestling's biggest event will rest largely on the very strong shoulders of these two women. >> we did have our fans literally on the floor with us. >> they are scions of two of america's most prominent sports families. >> it's an emotional journey for me. >> steph me mcmahon, daughter of world wrestling entertainment ceo vince mcmahon is the company's chief brand officer. charlotte jones anderson, daughter of dallas cowboys owner jerry jones, holds the same job for the cowboys. it was charlotte who managed to land wrestlemania for her family's at&t stadium. >> i made the pitch of why we needed to be together and why wrestlemania has to occur here. when it was over vince looked down the table, we're going to come to at&t stadium. it was a great event. >> how can you say no to charlotte.
9:33 am
extent to make it all work. >> exactly. >> of course it's a bit different from the games usually played here. charlotte's dallas cowboys on sport where nothing is preordained but stephanie makes no bones about the fact that world wrestling matches are essentially fixed or as wwe prefers to say, scripted. this season's stories of villains versus heroes, will culminate in wrestlemania 32, really a mega finale where champions will be revealed. >> you know what that outcome is? >> absolutely. we're going to take you on a ride. to make you so anxious and so caught up that you can't wait to see what's going to happen. >> but if their sports are different their lives have many similarities.
9:34 am
into your own in the business, was there a little skepticism, like, who is this girl? >> absolutely there still is. i do think when you are the boss' daughter or son that you have more to prove. he challenges me more, he drives me harder. you don't expect respect, you have to earn it from everyone. >> my biggest challenge is overcoming a perception that you are there only because you are your fart's do you. so every step of the way you're always trying to not only prove to yourself but trying to prove in your work that you belong where you are. >> both women are working in field's dominated by male executives. charlotte was not long out of stanford university when her father sold his oil and gas business to buy the then struggling cowboys in 1989. >> my family and i have given a
9:35 am
the cowboys. there will be nobody with the cowboys that doesn't give as big a piece of them, we don't want them with the cowboys. >> people forget that the dallas cowboys were losing $75,000 a day. >> a day? when you pick the biggest red letter item on the list, which happened to be laundry, went to the local dry cleaning if you will take care of our lone dei'll put your sign at practice and slowly the idea of sponsorship and marketing evolved. >> in recent years, she over saw the building of this billion dollar stadium, the nation's largest domed structure. >> this is our suite on game day this is filled with quite a bit of activity. >> she's now supervising a new state-of-the-art practice field and team headquarters on 91
9:36 am
dallas in frisco, texas. >> stephanie mcmahon started working at world wrestling, head quartered in stamford, connecticut, when she was still in high school. >> i'd come after school i'd answer phones, i still have extensions memorized from that time. we're here on the first floor which is in essence the heart and soul of the digital and social and creative teams for wwe. this is where it all really happens. >> after boston university, she worked her way up through the executive ranks. but she also plays another role. that's right, she's not only a top executive, but also a wrestler, a villain nicknamed the billion dollar princess. she once even had to slap her
9:37 am
former wwe executive in her right and one time candidate for the u.s. senate. >> i almost threw up. i'm not kidding. that was the single hardest thing i have ever had to do in our show. >> stephanie slapped her on r own mother! >> of course it was all part of the show. outside the ring, stephanie's life is remarkably parallel to charlotte's. both are moms to three children. both are married to men who work for the family business. charlotte to marketing executive shy anderson whom she met on a blind date. and stephanie to, wwe world heavy weight champ, triple h. and both joke about conflict with their dad's. >> never threatened to fire her are. i know that sometimes i expressed my disappointment which is probably worse than me -- >> i don't remember that. but you have actually. >> i would suggest i probably
9:38 am
has ever -- sort of a technique. she's been let go three or four times. >> i thought that maybe you don't always see eye to eye. >> no, we do not see eye to eye. more often than not, though, i come around. >> but each is clearly the apple of her father's eye. he admires his daughter's ability to command respect. >> i knew from her experience that she wouldn't break. that she had a tough skin. i saw that in her, that she would confront. >> it's a jolt of adrenaline for me because i draw on that. that vibrance that she has. >> neither woman wanted to discuss speculation that she could be in line to run the family company in the future. they were both too focused on wrestlemania 2. >> you expect every seat to be filled? is that the idea?
9:39 am
>> they hope to break the wrestlemania attendance record of 93,173 set in 1987. but it's more than numbers that drive them. >> we want people to talk away say, i have never been in a place like that and had an experience like that in all of my life. >> likely never will again. >> and likely never will again. >> pauley: ahead, timeless recordings that will survive. with ingredients like roasted hazelnuts and cocoa,
