A Tribute To Older Ladies
BOOK OF THE WEEK
My friend Karla wrote this non-fiction book. It is a children’s book for ages 6 to 11, so naturally I enjoyed it. It is a rather short book, but it is beautifully illustrated. So if you are like me and like a book that is a quick read with lots of pictures for your child, this book is that.
It provides a variety of information about Missouri and even briefly mentions how caves are formed.

ENTERTAINMENT OF THE WEEK
No Time To Die
I’m glad I saw the film, but I think the film is a good reminder that less is often more–the film was unnecessarily long. Plus, did they really have to fire so many bullets? I think had Clint Eastwood been selected to play the role of Bond, Clint would just have to stare at the bad guys and they would have given up.
No Time to Die is a 2021 spy film and the twenty-fifth in the James Bond series. It stars Daniel Craig in his fifth and final outing as British agent James Bond. In this film, Bond, who has left active service with MI6, is recruited by the CIA to find a kidnapped scientist, which leads to a showdown with a powerful adversary.
No Time to Die had its world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 28 September 2021, and was released in cinemas on 30 September 2021 in the UK and on 8 October 2021 in the US, after being delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The film received generally positive reviews, with many considering it to be a fitting conclusion to Craig’s role as Bond, and has grossed $525 million worldwide, making it the fifth highest-grossing film of 2021. (Source: Wikipedia)

Who else, since this week is dedicated to older ladies
Queen Elizabeth II
Elizabeth II (Born 21 April 1926) is Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms.
Elizabeth was educated privately at home and began to undertake public duties during the Second World War. In November 1947, she married Philip Mountbatten, a former prince of Greece and Denmark, with whom she had four children.
When her father died in February 1952, Elizabeth—then 25 years old—became queen regnant. Her coronation was in 1953.
On 9 April 2021, after over 73 years of marriage, her husband, Prince Philip, died at the age of 99.
Elizabeth is the longest-lived and longest-reigning British monarch, the longest-serving female head of state in history, the oldest living and longest-reigning current monarch, and the oldest and longest-serving incumbent head of state. (Source: Wikipedia)
