Hi Tweeters -

Just saw the first Varied Thrush of the season. Must be cooling off higher up...The Spy That Came in from the Cold...???

... who knew...heard this on CBS This Morning today:

...Although the stories and characters were fictional, a number of elements had a real life background, taken from real people or events that Fleming knew or about which he had read. These included the name James Bond, which Fleming took from the American ornithologist James Bond, Bond's code number—007—which came both from English spy and polymath John Dee, the breaking of a World War I German diplomatic code, Bond's character and tastes, as well as Fleming himself.

Guess James Audu"Bond" would have just been too long.

Caryn / Wedgwood
