Travel and Vacation : The Bahamas - Beautiful Beaches, Conch Shells and Mangos

Both my father and my husband are from Nassau, Bahamas, so I always like to say a little something about this beloved country at different sites that I write for. Rather than rehash the content of my various articles published elsewhere on the web, decided that in this bubble I would simply share the YouTube video clip which is the famous scene from the very first James Bond movie, "Dr. No", where James Bond (played by Sean Connery) sings a few words from "Underneath the Mango Tree"; and Honey Rider (played by Ursula Andress) was also singing that song while she was collecting conch shells on a beach in The Bahamas.



The video doesn't include the complete dialogue, but Honey said that she could get $50 for one shell in Florida!

Grew in Miami, Florida. "Dr. No" was released 1962. Often wonder what the market price for a conch shell is these days. Enjoy the video!

JFK's recommendation may have helped sell the James Bond books to America - Did you know that the late former President John F.

My Worry-Free Philosophy (Humor and Serious Truth)

“Revenge it's a kiss, this time I won't miss, now I've got you in my sight.”

( Lyrics from GoldenEye - http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/tinaturner/goldeneye.html )

I love me some Tina Turner. Her being picked to sing a James Bond theme song? So worthy to be chosen to become a member of the same club as Dame Shirley Bassey. She performed this song well, but alas … Revenge is not a part of my worry-free philosophy. 




The advice in the image above (found at glitter-graphics.com) says: “Never go to bed angry. Stay up and plot your revenge.”

Eh! That's great for a joke! But not a route one should take in real life.

 Never go to bed angry. Anger is an emotion that you can fully control. CONTROL IT!! Anger, more often than not, makes you do things you regret for a long long long time.

Say what? Jesus got angry with the money changers in the temple? Yeah well, you're still trying to get to heaven. Don't screw up your chances! Jesus is already there! He can lock the gates!! ☺


Also, don't give me that crap about anger management or you'll make me angry!!  


 Stay up and ... Stay up? WHAT???!!! I get precious little sleep as it is!! You want me to choose between beauty rest versus wrinkles, extra gray hair, and bloodshot eyes? What are my other options?


 Plot my revenge? Plotting is needed when writing a book or a script for a movie. If I have that kind of time to spare and can spend it on plotting, might as well write a book. Why not? I'm wide awake anyway!! You never know. Could be another Harry Potter series.

So the bottom line is: 
Revenge is _______________. In my life, it's a blank and I'm never going to fill it in.



Like to read more of my worry-free philosophy? Click this link: My Worry Free Philosophy You have my assurances that none of the quips and quotes were borrowed from Erma Bombeck.



IN MEMORY OF: Erma Bombeck (1927 – 1996) 
Ms. Bombeck is a beloved American humorist. She was noted for using the vehicle of comedy to aptly and succinctly express practical wisdom and advice encapsulated in witty, terse, hilarious statements.


March is Women's History Month and it seemed fitting to honor her and supply a link to an article which shares some of her selected quotations: http://womenshistory.about.com/cs/quotes/a/qu_erma_bombeck.htm
