Shaken and Stirred and Octogenarian

Thought for the day :
In the real world ... James Bond would now be in his eighties.
(What fun to write an adventure for an octogenarian 007!)

Frances Stonor Saunders reviews The Man Who Saved Britain by Simon Winder in Telegraph.

you're still blogging so this is a good sign that you're getting better i hope? and I pray that you will get well soon...

I wish i can cheer you up with some good jokes...since this is a soccer mad season i wish i could send this funny clip - someone sent me a lovely & short 2 mins or so football clip recently which is hilarious but i don't know how to paste it here ...

by the way england team sucks big time...they don't deserve to be in the quarter final let alone become a world champ...

He likes his prune juice shaken, not stirred.

I was watching "For Your Eyes Only" on the Astro some time ago, the special effects were quite amazing for a movie which isn't so new.

greenbottle - i am back from hospital just and am recovering

don't talk to me about football or i'll have a relapse

i don't support england or anyone else!!!

anonymous - you sound like a splogger and that doesn't impress me ... i'll set james bond onto you and he will gnaw you with his dentures or beat you to death with his zimmer frame

jordan - brilliant!

james - i like the old james bond movies

Read a review of Roger Moore's performance as JB some time back, and the reviewer hit the nail on the head when he described Moore's JB as "looking like an ageing sex-tourist running around in exotic locales." !!

Sharon, hope you're feeling better now. Thank you for such a lovely time the other day-you are every bit I thought you would be-warm, funny and a bit crazy. Please stay that way.

Hi Sharon!

Need your help... do you know anyone who has a small collection of coffee table books? I'd like to interview them about it. It's my first assignment for MPH Quill. :D Could you help advertise for me? Thanks very much! See you tomorrow night!

jane - it was great to meet you too and look forward to seeing you again?

eternal wanderer - i'll put up an ad tomorrow!! meanwhile starlight (see sidebar) might be a good person to ask as she has edited coffee table books ...
