Good morning JW, Clarky and all! Friday again already. It only seems like yesterday it was Friday despite all that has gone on inbetween. Much more travelling around for me at the moment so my Tube map is my friend.
Vintage Poljot for me today,
Just fell in love with this one (can't think why?)
Yes, time is certainly flying, Nigel. I hope you and yours are well.
Still had the Seamaster Chronometer on my wrist last weekend. I watched "Hemingway & Gellhorn" (Dir: Philip Kaufman, 2012) starring Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman.

It's always tricky when an actor has to play a character with such a (self-created and bestowed from without) mythology built around them. But I have a soft spot for Mr Owen. Check him out in "Children of Men" (Dir: Alfonso Cuaron, 2006). Brilliant film. Restored my faith in movies at a time when I had seen a lot of average fare at the cinemas.
"Hemingway & Gellhorn" was okay. I'd rate it a six or seven out of ten, but it was beautifully shot and edited, with a clever mix of archival footage blended in. And say what you like about Miss Kidman. Yes, she's appeared in nearly every film made in the last fifteen years, but she does great work in the role of Martha Gellhorn, giving her a smokey voice and a controlled sensuality.
About halfway through the film, watching everybody knocking back booze like it was water, I felt like a drink. So, in keeping with the Hemingway vibe, out came a bottle of Scotch;
Monday night, I switched over to the Seamaster 300 (WatchCo), and spent the next three days tackling some Library databases homework;
It was Sean Connery's birthday last weekend (25th), so in honour of his Submariner on leather as worn in "Dr. No", I put the watch on a ZRC black leather with croco pattern strap.

Have a great weekend, all!
