More Than Just 007

Hello again!

Luckily, “our” David got through Harvey in Houston pretty much unscathed. I hope your “Davids” as well if they were involved in any of the mayhem that occurred this late summer-autumn (hurricanes, Harvey in Houston, Irma in Florida, Jose in the Caribbean as well as Irma and Marie, Katia in east Mexico, earthquakes in southern and central Mexico, flooding in numerous places including Italy and even Switzerland). It seems there are “plusses” for buying a house above the “500-year flood plain” in Houston, in any case. I had never looked at that before, but next time (if there is one), I will definitely check on that!

This post is about (surprise!) 007, but not the actors involved. published the cars of 007 and the girls (I think I prefer “ladies”) of 007, both in vertical strips. I thought it might be interesting to put them side-by-side and see what we all like the best. Well, the page is not wide enough to get good definition on the page to be able to see things as will as I wanted, so the strips are set up one after another. Sorry ’bout that!





Information Polling

If you want to vote for a favorite car or “Bond Girl,” Just write a comment down below. Personally, I’m a traditionialist on these two subjects, and the Aston Martin DB5 that was first seen in “Goldfinger” and in later films as well is my favorite car. If you are interested, there is a cinematic history of Aston Martins in Bond films at


My favorite Bond Girl is far and away Ursula Andress.

She was the first one, and for me she defined the role for all those who followed. The text on the picture stip is impossible to read. I suggest you take a look at Bond Girls Then and Now if you want to choose one to vote for. I will start the survey with a comment:
