Former ‘James Bond’ passes…

Actor Roger Moore, best known for his portrayal of the James Bond character, has died after “a short but brave battle with cancer.”

BTW:  The ICONIC name and the number? Ian Fleming was a Naval Intelligence Officer who longed to live the life of a spy in “Her majesty’s Secret Service”. The British author created the fictional ‘James Bond’ character in 1953.

The name? Well, the Bond name came from an  American ornithologist James Bond, a Caribbean bird expert and author of the definitive field guide Birds of the West Indies.    Fleming, a keen birdwatcher himself, had a copy of Bond’s guide.

The iconic “007” was the bus route number that Fleming regularly rode while developing the Bond character.   https://goo.gl/vLlEUz      https://goo.gl/tNCUw5
