The next time you visit Waikiki, Hawaii, and I just know that you will, be sure to explore the island on a Harley-Davidson from the best motorcycle rental in Hawaii, Cruzin Hawaii, right on Waikiki Beach. Glenn and Christine, a couple from Youngstown, Ohio, did what many of us dream about, but never actually do. They left the hum-drum life here on the 'mainland' and followed their passion to live and work in Hawaii. I am jealous as heck. Why couldn't my passion have been the warm sun and cool breezes of a South Seas paradise? Don't get me wrong, I am happy that my passion is old movies and tv shows, but why am I stuck here in beautiful Niles, Ohio instead of sunny Hawaii? I think that I need to meditate more and see if I might be inspired to take my laptop down that way . . . I can connect to the internet and upload old movies from there just as well as from here . . . of course, I'd miss my friends from Ohio and from Bluffton, South Carolina . . . and Bluffton isn't too shabby either when it comes to nice weather . . . what to do, what to do . . . .

Pearl Harbor brought Hawaii to the world's attention on December 7, 1941, because of the attack on the U.S. Naval base that was established there, and it would be another nine years before Hawaii chose to become our fiftieth state on August 21, 1959. In 1938, when Bobby Breen used the islands as the setting for this adventure and more of his young tenor voice, Hawaii was an independent nation, an exotic South Seas wonderland. The language, the dance, the food and the customs were all different and exciting to an American audience. Bobby plays a stowaway on a luxury liner heading for Hawaii, and sings his way into the hearts of movie goers as he avoids the police and helps to capture spies that are stealing information from the U.S. Naval base on the island. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and drizzle lots of warm melted butter over it as you sit with the kids and enjoy a slice of heaven with Canadian singing sensation Bobby Breen and the wonders of Hawaii.
