Girls Just Want to Have Fun . . .

I have heard that Florida is full of wealthy women . . . widows of men who worked their lives away building huge estates . . . and then dying early from all of the stress of the work . . . leaving wealthy widows with all the money that their husbands spent their lives earning. Derek Sivers, the man who created CDBaby.com and helped revolutionize the recording industry says this about the wise use of time for a passionate and focused businessman: "To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time." But a passionate achiever cannot focus entirely on his passion and his goal, and the work that he must do to reach that goal, he must be somewhat 'present' focused also - there must be a balance. Derek goes on to say "Sometimes, pull your head out of the future, and give your full attention to the present. Relationships, communication, and sex require this. But too much present focus is hedonism: living only for immediate gratification with as much excitement and novelty as possible."

In this comedy crime adventure Teri Mortimer, played by Anne Crawford, is the bored and neglected wife of workaholic businessman Charles Mortimer, played by Donald Stewart. With the help of her girlfriend Lady Margaret, she tricks her husband into visiting a jewelry store and purchasing the famous Peterville Diamond for her, but after Charles writes the check a suave jewel thief enters the store and robs the owner of his best jewels . . . and the Peterville Diamond resting on the finger of the bored wife . . . and the bored wife seems to be fascinated with the suave thief, to the point that her husband Charles is finally a bit peeved and jealous. That evening at a party that Charles and Teri are giving for the President of the small South American country that they are in, they are surprised by the entrance of Baron Redburn . . . who is the jewel thief! Under his arm is a briefcase with all of the jewels in it, and now the real fun begins as the Chief of Police, and Charles' right hand man, and an American detective . . . and the ladies, Teri and her girlfriend Lady Margaret, all discover that the jewels are in the Baron's briefcase. But wait, it isn't as simple as that . . . There are three identical briefcases, and the three get swapped so many times by the players that none of them, or us, is sure which briefcase holds the priceless jewels, as the police and the girls and Charles chase after the briefcases. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
