Adventures in Graving
By Lisa Burks


Before Michael Jackson’s death, grave hunting was a (pardon the pun) niche interest.


Today it’s become a national obsession as the mainstream media Keystone Cop their way around our stomping grounds, trying to do what seasoned Hollywood area grave hunters have been accomplishing for years: find out where a body is buried.


Now I can appreciate what Meryl Streep must feel like whenever a flavor-of-the-month model tries to act. Just kidding. Kindasorta. 😉

Jean Harlow Reincarnated?


Jean Harlow


It’s been 72 years since screen siren, Jean Harlow died prematurely at the age of 26. Recently Lisa Burks, writer and Franchot Tone biographer, interviewed Valerie Franich, a woman who is believed by some to be the reincarnation of the Blonde Bombshell


“I don’t go around saying ‘I’m the reincarnation of Jean Harlow’ because I think that would be disrespectful,” explained Valerie from her home in the Seattle area.  “But because of my personal experiences, I’m open to the high possibility that it’s true. What I do say is ‘someone prove it to me,'” she added.


Check out Lisa’s very interesting story and decide for yourself.
