“THE best thing about be­ing a woman is the pre­rog­a­tive to have a lit­tle fun.”

So sings coun­try mu­sic su­per­star Sha­nia Twain.

I per­son­ally don’t know the best thing about be­ing a woman, be­cause I’m a bloke, but good ol’ Sha­nia was cer­tainly on to some­thing when singing about hav­ing a lit­tle fun.

How do you make a Pi­rates movie with­out the star. Julie White Wont be watch­ing that any­more. Michelle Cross It will lack with­out him. Damien Ed­wards Vinci. The world’s rich­est man, Ama­zon founder Jeff Be­zos, spends bil­lions on start­ing space tourism.

But un­like the Sul­tan of Brunei, cars aren’t that im­por­tant to him – he drove a 1996 Honda Ac­cord to work af­ter be­com­ing rich.

Of course, it’s easy to buy fun when your cash is over­flow­ing.

But every­body needs to spend some of their money on fun.
