Skyfall




Well… it was brilliant! ;-)

When you come out of the cinema wanting to go and see the very same film again,  I think that says it all!! And so, without giving too much away:

A superb cast; Daniel Craig has to be the best Bond ever! Judy Dench excels. And there’s a real beast of a baddie!!

Ab fab views of Shanghai… and then, all of a sudden, you find yourself in the Scottish Highlands and you realise that there’s no better place for a massacre than Glencoe !! ;-)

This film absolutely oozes Britishness and there’s a symbol of the very essence of Britishness, which enters and exits at various points of the film.  Say no more.

Skyfall is, indeed, well crafted, in every way possible. Yes, it’s far fetched in places but isn’t that what Bond films are all about? I also loved the music ; the score is diverse…and divine...and delightful!
And then there’s Adele and THAT theme tune (which comes 12 minutes after the film begins!) and believe me, it’s even better in ‘cinema mode’! Nice ‘n loud! 

This is entertainment at its best! Well, I think so!

Finally…who or what is Skyfall?!!

Go see for yourself!  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

A lovely walk and then... OMG!! ;-)



Paignton 5pm yesterday...and what a warm spell we are having here in sunny South Devon!

We had spent the day doing a few jobs and decided to venture out later in the day.

So we jumped on the train ..a ten minute ride and we were there.





We walked around to the harbour, a very pretty area.











We then walked all along the sea front and it was bliss. 

With few people around,the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore

was pleasant music to our ears.

It was a lovely walk.

BUT THEN... OMG!


Making our way back to the town, we happened to pass this hotel.

I had to look twice at what was going on.

It seems that they have their dates all wrong, is all that I can say!!

Christmas decorations everywhere!

SHAME ON THEM!!


Why on earth do we have to have all this on October 20th?

Disgraceful.










(In fact, I don't even know why I am giving them the publicity!)

I just think that anyone who puts up Christmas decorations

in October, should be ...well...you know!

;-)
