    Miscellaneous: No Time For Blog, Doctor Jones

    The first week of the year is always a mess, isn’t it? I’m on a new schedule, which is actually an old schedule, and as a result I haven’t had time to update the site these last few days. I tried, though. I took a whack at that sixteen random things meme making the rounds and realized that there are only eleven salient facts about me. And only six of them are interesting.

    So until equilibrium is restored, check out some other blogs of note. Like author Tom Piccirilli’s The Cold Spot. Or JohnAugust.com. This recent post outlining his involvement with the Captain Marvel movie is as good a primer on how Hollywood works as you’ll find.

    I know, that’s not enough. Tell you what. Here’s a song that Cary Grant used to perform at parties. It’s sung to the tune of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean.” I learned it from the book I’m currently reading, Roger Moore’s memoir My Word Is My Bond.

    I once had a box of tin soldiers
    I knocked off the general’s head
    I broke all the sergeants and corporals
    Now I play with my privates instead

    Go on, try to do it in Cary’s voice.

    Oh, all right. I know what you really want.

    Just finished Sir Roger Moores book, great stuff Rog....all the best---Creveat.


    Sorry! The names Caveat, Caveat Emptor. I bought another paperback at the same time that I purchased the excellent Sir Rodger More autobiography. Have you read Bill Shatners autobiography? Entitled, William Shatner up until now. Equally as good, (sorry Mr Shatner, excellent). The ending, wow! If anyone does purchase the book I would suggest you do not read the last few words at the end, it’s the one thing that Mr Shatner does not give away. Read it, you don’t have to be a Trekkie, I’m not. Have a nice day-----
