    Thank you. I didn't get the job. I will continue to search and try until I find something I can be successful at. At least the longer I stay in my current post as a supervisor, I am slowly building up the experience that employers are looking for.

    I watched Goldfinger on Sunday (my wife was at work, that is why I was able to! She does not like Bond films at all!) I have a question. Was Sean Connery the man in the gun barrel scene? To me it didn't look like him, he appeared different in stature?

  • Napoleon PluralNapoleon Plural LondonPosts: 9,201MI6 Agent

    No, it was stuntman Bob Simmons for the first three. Connery only first appeared in Thunderball in the gun barrel probably because it was widescreen and had to be redone, and it's not great, he wobbles slightly at the end.

    I took this picture yesterday, fancy playing Flowers In The Rain on it, Barbel? 😂


    Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

    Better luck next time, Joshua, your perseverance will pay in the end.

    CHB- Wow, that's impressive!

    N24- it ties in with a separate conversation we were having elsewhere.

    Night and day on Mactan Island.

    The horrors of having a large garden with a good harvest. Most of the apples and berries will be eaten by birds an worms ... 😩

    Beautiful photos CHB!

    Barbels photo reminds me of how the weather usually is here.

    @CoolHandBond and @Number24

    Both you characters have magnificent views of overlooking salt water right out your front door! I am very jealous!

    That Norwegian fjord reminds me of the coastline of Canada's West Coast where I spent many happy years, though I assume the temperature range and length of daylight is rather different.

    I've heard parts of Canada's west coast is together with New Zealand are among the few placed that looks like here.

    I don't know the temperature ranges and daylight hours om Canada's west coast, so I don't know. You don't have the Gulf Stream and if there aren't any comparable warm major sea streams running along the coast I assume it's much colder on the same latitudes.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,128MI6 Agent

    I just looked it up. The far south of Norway is about as far north as the furthest north of Canada's west coast. Most of Norway is about as far north as Alaska. Thanks God for the Gulf Stream!

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    All joking aside, beautiful pics, guys, much appreciated.

  • caractacus pottscaractacus potts Orbital communicator, level 10Posts: 2,413MI6 Agent

    it may not be the same Gulf Stream, but the major ocean current in the Pacific functions the same way, I think: a big counterclockwise circle from the equator towards the arctic, so that warm equatorial waters are being pushed north along the west coast of North America .

    Around Vancouver, Victoria, and Seattle, temperatures in winter rarely get as low as zero, and in summer rarely more than 25. Very civilized. Whereas on our Atlantic coast I gather they get winters much worse, because that big circular Atlantic current is pushing cold water south. My friends in Newfoundland said they saw icebergs drifting by in July, whereas in Victoria I would see roses blossoming in January.

  • Number24Number24 NorwayPosts: 18,128MI6 Agent

    Places like Kristiansand, a big town in the far south, has temperatures much like Vancouver. Innland temperatures, particularely in the north, can get as low as minus 30, 40 and in extreme cases as low as minus 50.

    It does rain here too, it’s tipping down and loud thunder - just taken this at 07.30 - but it is already 81F


    Lovely view, N24. We’re very much south of you - approximately 700 miles north of the equator.

    Breaking news: Chuck Norris has caught Covid-19. The virus is now in a one-month quarantine.

  • CoolHandBondCoolHandBond Mactan IslandPosts: 4,041MI6 Agent

    I had to go the dentist yesterday, so travelled across the bridge from Mactan into Cebu which is under MECQ rules at the moment. A usually packed mall was very quiet. The number of COVID cases is dropping substantially because of the restrictions so hopefully they may be lifted upon the review on September 7th.

    I hope nothing serious at the dentist, CHB. It's beyond time for me to have a check up- the "lockdown" excuse has outlived its use, I fear.

  • CoolHandBondCoolHandBond Mactan IslandPosts: 4,041MI6 Agent

    Just a small filling, Barbel. Pain free from start to finish, happy to say 🙂

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    That's good. 😊

    Today Danish health authorities said Covid-19 is no longer a threath to their society! Handshakes, hugs, cinemas, conserts, cinemas ... it's all back! 😊

    People are still encouraged to stay at home if they feel ill, infected must quarantine and the authorities still track the virus. Congratulations, Denmark!

  • BarbelBarbel ScotlandPosts: 31,542Chief of Staff

    That's good news. 😊

    It's been proven by science that the people who experience the highest number of birthdays tend to live longer than the rest of the population.
