Video Tour of My Marilyn Monroe Collection

I did an interview for the Wellington County Museum highlighting my items that are currently on display.  I am happy to be able to share this with those of you who are unable to come and see it in person.

MarilynGeek Guide to Niagara

I have visited Niagara Falls many times over the years but I finally got around to concentrating on Marilyn's time there.  I have researched and documentated how Niagara looked then and now.  If you are planning a trip there I hope you find this guide useful to locate the Marilyn locations that are still there.

Here is the link to the Guide...
