The Prime Minister has recorded a video message to celebrate He said: "As we celebrate St Andrew’s Day, we celebrate Scotland, this great nation of culture and enterprise, of pride and passion, whose countrymen and women gave the world the steam engine, the television, penicillin, James Bond, Harry Potter – even the Higgs Boson.

June 19, 2014 is National Martini Day Today is National Martini Day! Although the exact origin of the martini is unknown, this iconic drink has earned a permanent place in the pantheon of classic cocktails. The first printed recipe for a “Martinez” cocktail appeared in a bartending manual published in San Francisco in 1887. However, historians disagree over whether the beverage actually originated on the West Coast. In 1911, a New York City bartender named Martini di Arma di Taggia began serving a cocktail made with gin, vermouth, orange bitters, and an olive garnish. The martini gained widespread popularity among Manhattan socialites, and has been associated with New York ever since. Today, 50% of all cocktails are served in a martini glass. Some of the most famous (historical and fictional) martini lovers include: John D. Rockefeller, Humphrey Bogart, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Clark Gable, Ernest Hemingway, and James Bond. To celebrate National Martini Day, enjoy a refreshing martini in the company of ...
The first movie, Our Man Flint, involves the evil Galaxy organization threatening the world with their weather-manipulating machine. ZOWIE, led by Mr. LLoyd C. Cramden (played by Lee J. Cobb) has no choice but to call on Derek Flint, the world renowned private secret agent (played by James Coburn). Flint follows Galaxy from New York to Marseille, Rome, and then to Galaxy Island, where he causes the destruction of the Galaxy organization and saves the planet from certain doom. In 1965, 20th Century Fox presented its own version of a master spy to take on United Artist's popular James Bond franchise. The first three James Bond movies had already made considerable money for that studio so Fox decided to try for itself. Their hero was wholly a celluloid creation however, not a transfer from a book series. Derek Flint was the creation of Hal Fimberg, whose writing credentials, though sparse, did go back quite a few years. Whether it was in keeping with a growing trend to try to 'out-Bond Bond' or, more likely, ...
John Joseph Patrick Ryan (December 30, 1920 – January 21, 1998), best known by his stage name, Jack Lord, was an American television, film and Broadway actor. He was known for his starring role as Steve McGarrett in the American television program Hawaii Five-O from 1968 to 1980. Lord appeared in feature films earlier in his career, among them Man of the West (1958). He was the first actor to play the recurring character Felix Leiter in Dr. No, the first James Bond film. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Lord was the son of Irish-American parents. His father, William Lawrence Ryan, was a steamship company executive.[1] He grew up in Morris Park[2] (now known as Richmond Hill), Queens, New York. Young Lord developed his equestrian skills on his mother's fruit farm[3] in the Hudson River Valley. He started spending summers at sea, and from the deck of cargo ships,[4] painted and sketched the landscapes he encountered — Africa, the Mediterranean and China. He was educated at St. Benedict Joseph Labre School,[2 ...
MOSCOW - Friday we touched base at two poles of Russia's journalism spectrum, distinct in age and independence. Touring TASS with features editor Vladimir Kikilo was at times like walking the set of a 1970s James Bond film: dark wood-panelled hallways and offices full of middle-aged men. Upstairs, though, headquarters of the government's news agency is undergoing a major remodel, with modern office space patterned on the Associated Press in New York. Leaving TASS, we made our way through the brick labyrinth of the former "Red October" chocolate factory, now a hive of hipster and New Russia businesses. There, we spoke at length with Mikhail Zygar, Editor in Chief of TV Rain, an independent channel he says is being starved to death by government pressure on its advertisers and cable carriers. Rain's space is done in hip industrial style and staffed with squadrons of young Russians. Watch this space for more on TV Rain.
Well, that wraps up a Marching Band career of epic proportions. It all started in 8th grade, under the direction of John Mashburn, playing "New York, New York" with a jazzy solo in "Harlem Nocturne". Freshman year i marched through Disney World with Earth Wind and Fire, with a solo in "Fantasy". Sophomore year I marched in Mardi Gras with "A Latin Fantasy" with a flugelhorn solo in "Concerto de Aranjuez" and a mariachi solo in "Malagueña". Junior year I marched down the streets of London on New Years Day, playing the music of Queen with a solo in "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "We Are The Champions". Senior year I marched through Gatlinburg, playing the music of Chuck Mangione, with a trumpet solo in "The Children of Sanchez", a flugelhorn solo in "The Land of Make Believe" and an ad lib solo in the same tune. Then came Furman, where I played "Cities That Rock" featuring the music of Chicago, Boston and Kansas during year one, and "Bond" featuring the music of James Bond. Some very memorable moments under the . ...

  A 1963 Aston Martin like the one James Bond drove in “Goldfinger” began its journey from Frankfurt to New York by being maneuvered into the hold of a Delta Air Lines Inc. (DAL) jet.   The tires of the $450,000 coupe were lashed to a standard freight pallet. Its gleaming chrome bumpers extended over the sides, so workers adjusted by putting slimmer cargo nearby. The bill for the trans-Atlantic trip: More than $10,000.   Delta flies about 100 cars a year, putting it in the vanguard of a new front in U.S. airlines’ quest to widen profit margins with premium services for wealthy fliers. That strategy drives the lie-flat seats and multi-course meals lavished on full-fare travelers. The payoff from freight, a $4 billion-a-year industry for North American carriers, is even bigger because passenger operations largely cover flight costs.   “The higher the value of the goods you’re shipping, the higher the margin, and a lot of these cars are almost irreplaceable,” said Helane Becker, an analyst at ...

I BUSTED OUT OF EVERY JUVINILE HOME they placed me in when I was a kid. Industry, The New York State School for Boys, fifteen miles south of Rochester, New York where my parents were, was the largest juvenile reformatory in the Empire State. I thought of this escape hundreds of times throughout the years as the seminal moment I became bad. Not real bad mind you, but bad none the less. Still thinking I was Matt Helm or James Bond, I plotted my daring escape from the moment they brought me there from a local juvenile detention facility which I also broke out of. To be honest with you I thought it was my duty to escape. I don’t know really know why, like I said I was a bad kid. Rolling thru the beautiful upstate New York country side in the back of state car in the early morning hours to the famous “Industry,” the place you didn’t want to be, I considered for a few minutes the possibility of me going thru the program and being a good boy, getting a job at Kodak or Delco or Bausch & Lomb, all i ...

"We can only theorize on the manner in which Moscow is controlled from New York, London and Paris. Undoubtedly much of the control is economic, but certainly the international bankers have an enforcer arm within Russia to keep the Soviet leaders in line. The organization may be SMERSH, the international Communist murder organization described in testimony before Congressional Committees and by Ian Fleming in his James Bond books. For although the Bond novels were wildly imaginative, Fleming had been in British Navy intelligence, maintained excellent intelligence contacts around the world and was reputedly a keen student of the international conspiracy."

Unveiling of a Wax Figure of Daniel Craig as James Bond at Madame Tussauds on November 13, 2008 in New York City.
Having trouble with the laptop tonight. Anyway, I played college tennis for a Division I team - played No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles WAY back in the day - and spent 13 years as the executive director of the Tennis Industry Association. I spent about 10 days in a row for 12 straight years in New York for the U.S. Open. So I follow the sport, especially the four Grand Slam events. I thought Novak Djokovic would win the final today. He is playing as well as anybody has ever played. Since I am at least part Scot, I have always rooted for Andy Murray. Murray wins and who is in the stands? None other than the greatest Scot of them all -- Sean Connery. The greatest James Bond forever - although I hate to admit I kinda like Daniel Craig. And, who else is in the stands? None other than Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester United. He is as Scottish as the day is long, lassie. So, to celebrate, I am going to have a wee nip and wear my kilt. If I had some bagpipes I would play them.

Did I just see that there is a film based on the game "Battleship"? What's next ... Gerard Butler and Rooney Mara in "Operation" -- where the tweezers accidentally touch the guy on the table, and then a buzzer goes off, setting off a James Bond-esque chase through the streets of New York ... or how about "Chutes and Ladders", featuring Jackie Chan trying to get from block 1 to 100 by avoiding all of the pitfalls... oh, I know ... "Sorry!" -- featuring Christian Bale and Johnny Depp in a tale based on "The Odyssey", where they have to get all of the good guys back home. Maybe Bill Arthur can come up with some better ideas.
