Having physical ailments is not fun. Having new or “different” ailments is really not fun. I am happy to report, however, the kidney is doing better; the pain has decreased considerably; and the energy level is once more going up. The train is now coasting along nicely and gaining speed!

Sadly, because the kidney and sinus problem has practically taken away the chance of me winning NaNoWriMo this year, I am happy to report it has not taken the enthusiasm away from this story. For a while there, I was half afraid it was going to wipe out all writing enthusiasm. Silly me: How can a down time completely take away from what keeps me going on so many levels? All it can do is delay me here and there.

One thing that made me very sad and almost upset was discovering today I had missed an opportunity to see Cheri Priest at Joseph-Beth Booksellers here in Lexington yesterday. Yes, I know! I was out and about and doing things with the Husband and didn’t even take time once to go to the computer and check e-mails to see if there was anything happening around town I – or we – might be interested in doing. Well, there was, and I missed her. I now has a big sad. 

The sad will pass, but it has taught me the value of checking e-mails on a daily basis.

One good thing that occurred this weekend is the Husband took me to the movies yesterday. We saw Skyfall, the new James Bond movie with Daniel Craig. This installment in the franchise brought everything around full circle. There is a Moneypenny again, and a wonderful M with a bit of a tough streak in him. There was a big hint of the James Bond from the novels as well as the same character we have all come to love from the many different actors who have played Bond. I can honestly say Daniel Craig as bond is my favorite of all except for the original himself – Sean Connery.

The character of Bond was also put through the wringer and came out Bond. Once you see the movie you will understand why I say this. The character’s anguish was necessary in bringing about the freshness this movie had about it than all of the others. If you haven’t seen it, go, and decide for yourself if this is not one of the better incarnations of James Bond and his universe. This time I believe Ian Fleming would be very proud, and so pleased he might just border on smug about it.

    wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.


  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as

    My website is in the very same niche as yours and my users would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you present here.
