Entertainment Facts About Hawaii

I feel terribly slack for not doing a blog post in nearly a week. If I told you about the week I have had you wouldn't believe me! However I am involved with a fun project at work for Kiddie Hawk Air Academy, and they are hosting their 6th Annual Living Legends of Aviation Ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Thursday night. There will be some cool celebrities there such as Sir Richard Branson, Harrison Ford and Morgan Freeman, just to name a few. Without going into too much detail, perhaps you can imagine the week I have had given the info above, and that this project is in addition to the full time job I already have....say no more....

Given that I have been working in the celebrity circles last week and this week, I thought it might be nice to write about some entertainment trivia related to Hawaii. If you are like me and read People, US Weekly, Life & Style etc on a regular basis you would know that Hawaii is the playground for many celebrities and many have homes in the Islands as well. Test out your knowledge on these fun bits of trivia!
