Delton gets together a few close friends for a brainstorming session, a very diverse group, friends he has known for various reasons.

Dell, a lawyer that he went to school with. They have been friends since middle school and know how the other one thinks. Dell keeps Delton in line when he begins to stray.

James, a past business partner, from when Delton was building houses. The most trust worthy, when it came to business, that Delton had ever met, or knew.

Tommy, owner of several night clubs, knew the ins and outs, and was well informed on current government dealings. Delton relied on him for inside contacts, as Tommy had many, although they were not all to be trusted.

Clarence, this was Deltons insurance man, he could give all the information that he would need for shaping the insurance program he had in mind.

This is the group, that Delton has assembled, individually, to bounce ideas off of in the past and he has always been very pleased with the group. This however is much larger of an undertaking, this is why he brought them all together at this discussion.

Clarence arrives first, "hey Delton whats up, Jeannie told me you had an idea, and needed a little insurance advice. Is everything alright? Are you thinking of upgrading your life insurance?

Delton." no Clarence, nothing that complicated, much worse, (he chuckles) I have this idea and I want to wait until I get all you guys together and kind of, just bounce it around. I have Dell. James and Tommy coming too.

Clarence, " not Tommy, why in the hell are you dealing with him? Haven't you learned your lesson dealing with him, hell, last time he cost you several grand. Remember that?"

Delton,"yeah I do, but you don't know everything involved, Tommy had told me that his friend, the one that was going to build the truck stop, had a very checkered past. It was my decision to not listen to my gut, I guess, I had dollar signs in my head, anyway it clouded my thinking, That's in the past, I learned my lesson, lets just move on."

Clarence, "ok, Delton it's your ball game, what ever you do, is fine with me, I'll just listen to this thing, and whatever help I can give I will. Sound good?"

Delton, "yep, that's what I wanted to hear, let's just try to stay on the same page here. I really believe you will like this, and if it's half as good as I think it is, we can all make a good chunk of change."

Dell arrives and walks onto the front porch.
"hey guys, the gang all here" (slightly laughing)"Clarence I haven't seen you for a while, how's the fanily, and insurance biz."

Clarence, " all is well, except I know you cheap skate attorneys, always need more insurance." (laughs)

Dell, "and how is your will, maybe I need to look at that."

Delton,"ok you two enough, about past wives. (laughs)  I need you two to get clear headed before Tommy and James get here, this may take a while."

James and Tommy arrive together. Entering the front door, talking and smiling.

Tommy and Clarence, glare at each other for a second.

Delton." glad to see you guys, these two have been boring me to tears, and I really am excited to see what ya'll think of my idea, hopefully with everyones help, we can all make a little money."

The guys all get quiet and look at each other, each looks as puzzled as the other.

A Little Inetrlude Sneak preview

I have decided to take a little break.
I have also decided to do a little sneak preview here.
Most of you, have been following me for a while.
I will share here the story that I am writing for a screen play purpose, any and all suggestions and comment will be truly appreciated.
Screen plays are written in a much different fomat and is really foreign to me, I am suppose to be receiving soon the soft ware that converts it for me.
I hope you enjoy this story line.
ps. realize this is a rough draft

The story you are about to read has copy rights, in place, and pending protection for intellectual property:

The Year Is 2015-
Nothing set in stone

The opening scene:

The character exits the court house, there are crowds of people amassed at the bottom of the long set of stairs. 
Some people cheering, some are booing and hissing,
Some have hate signs, some have love signs, but there are thousands of people.
The man descends the stairs not waving or in any way acknowledging the crowd, He is whisked into a waiting limo and drives away.
Now the story begins.

Fade back to:
The year is 2009, December 21.
The man is sitting on his front porch reading the paper, and spots an article about impending doom.

He waits for his friend that delivers the mail, he shows him the story.
His friend relates to him that he is more than aware of all of this news and hoopla, as he has been delivering all of these survival books for weeks, that are all related to surviving this impending doom that is coming in the year of 2012.

He tells him that there has even been a movie that was recently released, all types of TV shows, books about how all these scientist, scholars, preachers, rabbis, historians, and on and on, are all relating the end of the world has been designated as of December21,2012.

He has never heard any of this before.
It gets him to thinking about a similar event that happened in 1999, about the Y2K thing and all the money that was made from this non-eventful scenario.

Fear sells, and he wants to cash in, but how?
He research's diligently for several months, contacts many of the doomsday experts, then devises his plan.

He will introduce a survival insurance program, that will be expressly designed as a program for 20012, survival,  guaranteed.

He will build vehicles, similar to the shuttle craft, some for passengers, some for food, some for building supplies, some for fuel, etc...etc.

He will sell different packages for different people and the closer it gets to the doomsday date the higher the price.

The package will include rights for safe passage, living quarters, food, and fuel.
There are even packages that will include special space available for personal affects.

He gets all the builders of these shuttle craft together, procures the property for launching, builds warehouses.

Then starts recruiting people that have the money to back his venture.
The advertisement campaign is over whelmed with interest, The money flows in like a flood.

People are literally going crazy to become passengers and clients.
He makes trillions of dollars.

As the date nears for doomsday there is a frenzy, and he is being referred to as a modern day Noah.

How he got there:

Research is very important for the implementation of a successful plan.

Delton is a man of limited resources, but a wealth of imagination and ambition.
He realizes that there are only a few times in the length of a mans live, that presents itself with an opportunity to grab the brass ring. This he feels is his time.

The Mayans had written a calendar that was remarkably accurate, it fore told of many happenings, was further advanced than any found in existence. It fore told of eclipses, the coming of the Spaniards, and many other documented events.
This calendar ends in the year 2012.

Nostradamus, predicts "the great king of terror from the sky", this coincides with mars moving closer to earth, and the discovery of a planet of comets.

Edagar Cayce, another well known teller of prophecies,"the sleeping prophet",
predicts of a polar shift, between 2007 and 2012.

The Hopi Indians, talk of a third world that is destroyed by mother nature, this coincides with, Cayce, Nostradomus, and the Mayans.

The Oracles, all around the world many of the ancient oracles, Greek and Chinese, all talk of then end of time.

The encoded bible supposedly point out the destruction of the earth with a comet.

N.A.S.A., predicts solar flare and a polar shift, coinciding with the year 2012.

The Egyptians, have what is called "the orion" prophecies wit a hidden code found in the pyramids, that coincide with the Myan calendar.

Delton, after researching all of these predictions, prophecies, and coincidences, comes to the conclusion of mass hysteria.
Fear sells, he thinks, and this is a perfect formula for success, as he reflects on 1999 and the Y2K, events.

So, How to cash in, with out anyone getting hurt?
Can I make money from all of this, and still keep everyone happy?

this is just the first installation
more later...........or as they say
to be continued
