"Reel Life." RCA. * 1/2 George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam--the boy and the girl in question--released a Boy Meets Girl album three years ago, and as tunesmiths-for-hire they achieved fortune, if not fame, composing two of Whitney Houston's biggest hits.

Record stores are expecting clogged aisles next week. On Monday, the compact disc version of the Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," the most celebated rock album of all time, goes on sale. The next day, Whitney Houston's new album--the follow-up to the biggest-selling debut LP ever--goes on the shelves. Capitol Records said that the initial shipment of "Sgt. Pepper" is the largest for any CD the company has released, including its other seven Beatles collections.

One woman in Malibu grabbed her old wedding ring and divorce papers. A Santa Clarita man showed up at an evacuation center with four suitcases but little memory of what he and his wife threw into them. "Probably not what we need," he said, clutching his pillow. An Escondido woman, her head cloudy with panic, rescued her $1,000 Christian Louboutin shoes.
