Skyfall vs. Casino Royal

Skyfall. I heard good things from the relatives that went to see it. I love Bond movies, so I had to go see this one. So many good words about it. A movie critic from the CBC gave it 5 on 5.

I thought Casino Royal was the top of the top of the top. I had to see this one, as the Quantum of Solace was alright. But it was no Casino Royal.

The first part of the show was alright. The motorcycle scenes, good. But you get tired of watching hundreds of people running out of the way of the chase when on the over crowded streets. How does no one get hit? Maybe I am to much of a realist. Then the battle on top of the train. How could Madame M give such an order. Has she lost her brains. Especially when a chance was had for Bond to overcome his struggle.

One of the bond girls only lives a short while. This really surprised me. Alright then.

When the villain was on the ladder. He shot the steel bar twice. Let off on the trigger. Why not shoot him then and there? Finish it. Then a rail way car came crashing through. Did the crook set the explosive, at the right time, for this to happen. Unbelievable. By letting go of the villain there, he sure did allot of damage. This Bond is good at leaving the villains continue on to shoot people for a bit.

Then the old shooting the ice underneath me, and falling into the water trick while killing one of his adversaries. Alright.

The catchy slogans. The rat eating a rat thing. Then, at the end, the rat slogan comes out again. Cheesy.

Because it was a Bond film, I liked it. But not as much as the others. The best part of it was the opening song. Great job Adel! Casino Royal was a great film. You just never knew how it was going to end. The love element, the Villains, hard to top. Oh, and that card game. That is just my opinion.

Till next time, no news on the book front...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
