    Good morning, vagabonds. As promised, here are the answers to the “Bond” quiz. I’m resubmitting the questions so you’ll have the answers in context.

    The cardiologist referred me for some stress tests, but I prefer to take them in May, after I return from Florida and the weather is better.

    Yesterday I began scotch taping all my “One Big Happy” clippings on to paper. I’m trying to organize them by subject: James, Library lady, Avis, Playground Lady, Mr. Foley and Lucille, the garage sale lady (“Tarnation”) together.
    Oh, I forgot to mention: When my Chinese guest came for dinner, I had a sealed pair of chopsticks ready so he could take his choice of those or European tableware. He chose the chopsticks – eating rice with chopsticks really take a long time. I myself am not dextrous enough to use chopsticks.
    Anyway, here’s the Bond Q & A:
    ‘Now pay attention, 007!’

    1. What drink does bond order in the poker scene in “Casino Royale” (2006)?
    a. Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred
    b. The Vesper: Three measures of Gordon’s gin; one of vodka; half a measure of Kina Lillet vermouth. Shake it over ice, add a slice of lemon peel.
    c. Death in the afternoon: 3 tablespoons of absinthe, 1/2 cup of Champagne

    b. “Goldfinger” (1964)
    c. “Thunderball” (1965)
    d. “Diamonds Are Forever” (1971)

    3. Which Bond movie sees 007 wear a Scottish kilt, meet some brainwashed beauties and get married?
    a. “Dr. No” (1961)
    b. “Goldfinger” (1964)
    c. “Thunderball” (1965)
    d. “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” (1969)

    4. In “Live and Let die” (1973), how does Bond kill drug-trafficking bad guy Kananga (aka Mr. Big)?
    a. Poisons him with a dart gun
    b. Throws him in the Louisiana bayou, then eaten by crocodiles
    c. Forces a shark gun pellet into Kananga’s mouth, causing him to blow up like a balloon and explode
    d. Falls ina coffin filled with snakes and dies from venomous snakebites.

    5. In “Die Another Day” (2002), which celebrity cameos as a fencing instructor?
    a. Tina Turner

    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? It seems to me to be about 2 months too early this year. It CAN’T be November already!!!

    Good Morning, Vagabonds,

    I knew the first four Bond questions……no clue about the Madonna appearance. Thanks for the quiz, Arye.

    We have a day off today…….no errands, no doctor appointments, no meetings………just some time to enjoy the beautiful day. Snow is about 50% melted, so it’s easy for me to take my walks.

    We’re leaving early tomorrow to Great Falls. MMM is donating platelets at the Red Cross Center there. Should be a beautiful drive.
