The reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe
MALIBU, Calif., Aug. 8 -- Adrian Finkelstein, MD, UCLA Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, graduate of the renowned Menninger School of Psychiatry and pioneer in past-life regression therapy will present his client, Sherrie Lea Laird, as the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. Dr. Finkelstein will discuss his six-and-a-half-year working relationship with Ms. Laird, and explain why he is convinced that Ms. Laird is the reincarnation of Ms. Monroe. Dr. Finkelstein will present similarities in facial bone structure, hands, handwriting, voice pattern, linguistics and personality traits that exist in common between Marilyn Monroe and Sherrie Lea Laird. Dr. Finkelstein will also discuss new ways of potentially proving reincarnation, such as through DNA studies and the comparison of iris patterns. Dr. Finkelstein's work will be summarized in his upcoming book, Marilyn Monroe Returns, The Healing of a Soul, which will be released by Hampton Roads Publishing in Spring, 2006. Ms. Laird, who goes by the stage name, Sherrie Lea, is a singer whose production of "No Ordinary Love" hit the top of the charts in Canada and Europe. It is interesting to note that in her film Bus Stop, Marilyn's role was of a singer named Cherie.

Turkey for tribes
With a high population of unmarried people and singles in the Bay Area, the definition of extended families has grown to include close friends in addition to aunts and uncles. Often defined as "Urban Tribes," this generation of people redefine the relationship between family, friends and commitment -- a concept put forth in Ethan Watter's best-seller of the same name. Food often serves as the centerpiece of Urban Tribe gatherings.

Local culinary expert and mom, Rosemary Mark, has 20 years of experience preparing down-home cooking for publications such as Better Homes & Garden and Sunset magazine and is always looking for ways to cook delicious dinners with minimal fuss for holiday, social and especially family gatherings; she has found that the Jennie-O Oven Ready Turkey is the perfect main course for preparing a quick and delicious dinner and may be the perfect solution for the Urban Tribe Sunday dinner. Always moist, golden brown and tender, the turkey goes from freezer to table in less than four hours, without thawing or handling -- it's available in two pre-seasoned flavors: Homestyle and Butter, Garlic and Herb. Jennie-O Oven Ready Turkeys are available at a variety of San Francisco Bay Area grocery stores. For more tips on creating an entertaining and delicious "extended family" Easter dinner or Sunday dinner gathering, Mark is available for interviews and product demonstrations.
