Death of a Legend

Sir Roger Moore, who embodied the heartthrob swagger of the world's most famous spy "James Bond" for a dozen years, has died in Switzerland after a short battle with cancer, his family said Tuesday in a statement posted to Twitter. Sir Roger George Moore born 14 October 1927 in Stockwell, London. He was the only child of George and Lillian Moore.



Moore made his name in television. He was the eponymous hero, Sir Wilfred of Ivanhoe, in the 1958–59 series Ivanho. His next television series involved playing the lead as "Silky" Harris for the ABC/Warner Brothers 1959–60 western The Alaskans. In the wake of The Alaskans, Moore was cast as Beau Maverick, an English-accented cousin of frontier gamblers Bret Maverick played by James Garner.



Worldwide fame arrived after Lew Grade cast Moore as Simon Templar in a new adaptation of The Saint, based on the novels by Leslie Charteris. His participation in The Saint was not only as actor, but also as a producer and director, and he also became involved in developing the series The Persuaders!.



After replacing Sean Connery in the James Bond films, Moore played the infamous British spy from 1973 until 1985. He made his 007 debut in the film "Live and Let Die," He was the longest serving Bond in the film's series.

"Being eternally known as Bond has no downside," Moore said. "People often call me 'Mr. Bond' when we're out, and I don't mind a bit. Why would I?"



He embodied the world's most famous double agent for the next 12 years, starring in "The Man with the Golden Gun" in 1974,



"The Spy Who Loved Me" in 1977,



"Moonraker" in 1979,



"For Your Eyes Only" in 1981



"Octopussy" in 1983



Probably my favorite of his 007 "A View to a Kill" in 1985.


In 1991, he became a UNICEF Goodwill ambassador, which his family said was one of his life's passions. During his lifetime, Moore received numerous honors, including being made a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in 1999. In 2003, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Moore reflected on his knighthood in an interview with The Guardian.
"The knighthood for my humanitarian work meant more than if it had been for my acting," Moore said. "I'm sure some people would say, 'What does an actor know about world issues?' But [working for UNICEF] I've become an expert on things from the causes of dwarfism to the benefits of breastfeeding. I feel very privileged."

Thank you Sir Roger for a lifetime of entertainment and service to mankind.

At least 19 people were killed and more than 59 injured in an explosion at the end of a concert by American singer Ariana Grande in the English city of Manchester tonight and two U.S. officials said a suicide bomber was suspected. Those attending the concert was mostly young girls age 6-20. You can bet the lamestream media will be covering up as much as they can failing to call this an act of terrorism. This heinous premeditated assault gets downplayed while the talking libtard airheads will be frothing at the mouth with Russia! RUSSIA!! R U S S I A !!! Get our borders secured, round up the Islamic Terrorists Obama & Hillary brought here and make our country secure before this is an everyday occurrence in the USA.

For all those motor heads who just happen to have a very fat bank account. The first Lamborghini Centenario in the United States has been delivered to its owner in Newport Beach, California, and it has been personalized with Blu Nethuns exterior accents adorning its carbon fiber body.



Inside, there's black leather and Alcantara upholstery accented by blue stitching and embroidery, as well as a blue center console. Despite the car being extremely exclusive, buyers areable to customize their Centenario with any color scheme via Lamborghini's bespoke Ad Personam division.



Powering the Centenario is a 6.5-liter V-12 rated at 759 hp and 508 lb-ft of torque, and it's paired exclusively to a seven-speed Independent Shifting Rod transmission. Like the Aventador SV that it's closely based on, the Centenario puts its power down through all four wheels and has a top speed of 217 mph.



Lamborghini says that the Centenario will be able to hit 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and weighs 3,351 pounds thanks to its carbon fiber body. The limited edition car went into production to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini's birth.



In total, 20 coupes and 20 roadsters will be offered, and all have been spoken for. Pricing starts at $1.9 million before taxes for the Centenario coupe and north of $2 million for the Centenario roadster.



Deliveries of U.S.-spec Centenarios will continue throughout the year.

It's been a wet, rainy, chilly and down right crappy few days here. I dug out a project vase Alex and I picked up while out rummaging.



I spent the evening applying two shades of gold; a bright glittery metallic with a satiny gold highlight. Then the sky blue so it picked up the light blue within the wallpaper.

I messed up and failed to bring attention to TODAY Saturday May 20, 2017 as being Armed Forces Day. President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish a single holiday for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country. I/We wish to thank all our members who are currently serving our nation and those who have served protecting our way of life.

NO! Not that!



We'd covered the cement step with a sheet of plywood to protect it from the storms last night and yesterday.



Amazingly after I popped off the forms the concrete GOT HARD! All by it's self!

TODAY in the world of Science! Scientists Have Discovered a 'Puffy' Exoplanet With The Density of Styrofoam



Astronomers have found a giant exoplanet larger than Jupiter, but with extremely low mass - a composition that gives this mysterious 'puffy planet' a density very similar to styrofoam.



The team who found KELT-11b, which orbits a star located about 320 light-years from Earth, says this "extraordinarily inflated" world is the third-lowest density planet with a precisely measured mass and radius that has been discovered – and this oddball, lightweight sphere could tell us more about how such strange exoplanets evolve.

Here we go again.......



as if Trump doesn't have the Mexicans all pissed off enough!



I set out hell bent to bastardize their national food!



I made us BACON, lettuce and tomato TACOS with cool ranch dressing!



Pretty simple and easy to make from the American Classic BLT!



I laid down the soft shell taco. Added shredded lettuce, fried BACON, and sliced tomatoes.



I topped it off with some cool ranch dressing as suggested in chat by Bisex and they were fricking awesome! I bet you'll love them this summer too!

With all the problems facing our nation our petty lamestream media now spends time "deeply concerned" about what our first lady, Melania Trump is wearing. The previous administration had focused on American designers, however, going back Jackie Kennedy preferred Cassini and Dior.



Melania Trump likely has a number of dresses to choose from for special occasions. She made the decision, however, to opt for something less feminine-inspired for an event celebrating military mothers on National Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Instead, Melania hosted the gathering alongside President Donald Trump wearing a Dolce & Gabbana white button-down and Ralph Lauren Collection pants. The outfit exuded the classic "all-American style", and she's worn both designers multiple times since becoming first lady.



There was another outfit detail that didn't go unnoticed by the lamestream. Her black trousers flared out at the bottom while sailor-inspired buttons on the pockets gave a nod to the servicemen and women in attendance. Though we don't often see Melania in pants, this specific pair spoke to the day's events.



We have a beautiful First lady, gracious, and down right classy compared to the Target & Walmart special's rack from prior years gone by. I too dress in D&G's with a smattering of Ralph Lauren. Go try to buy American made clothes! Just maybe the lamestream media needs to focus on getting back American manufactured clothing? There's only ONE brand of jeans totally MADE IN THE USA right now and that is Lucky's. All the other "name brands" carried are made outside the USA. Yes we do own several pairs of "Lucky's" as a part of our support for American workers. However, sending JD out to scoop shit in cheap assed Levi's verses the more expensive Lucky's is a no brainer. Why not focus on the tax reforms currently proposed in congress so there will be more clothing with the MADE IN USA label on them for us as consumers.
