James Bond 007 Marathon, #22 Quantum of Solace and Recap

Tonight we watched #22, “Quantum of Solace” (2008). The female lead was incredible, the plot was top notch especially the continuity with the previous film and there wasn’t a gadget to be seen. Not one. The theme song was something… «more»

Not Another Cooking Blog

You’d think that I was trying to alienate all of you. What, with yet another post about my dinner and no pictures of the kids. Hey, it beats posts about Bond right? Oops, I go on to talk about Bond… «more»
