Did you know?



In 1942 Marilyn Monroe worked in the Radio Plane Munitions factory in Burbank, CA, where she sprayed fire retardant on airplane parts and inspected parachutes to be sent to the soldiers. Two years later while at work in 1944 a photographer, David Conover, from Yank Magazine took pictures for a feature on women in the war effort. After declaring her a photographer’s dream, Conover made her the focus of the shoot, and later began using her for other modeling jobs.

I had no idea! What a great story!

This story is awesome, and illustrates one great point. Hollywood is not the source of beauty and glamour, it's just where the current crop of "discovered" beauty and glamour congregate.

There are beautiful women everywhere, I just need to get my life straightened out before I go off in search of one myself. I do not subscribe to Jimmy Soul's philosophy of marrying an "ugly girl."

It can't work in fact, that is exactly what I believe.
