Book - The entity

500 years of Vatican intrigue and murder, starting with the Pope of the day trying to do away with our Queen Elizabeth 1 and replace her on the throne of England with Mary, Queen of the Scots. Things seem to have gotten out of hand after that with the Entity going after anyone who stood in the way of the Vatican's agenda, not its religious more its commercial agenda.

Book - Adventures Of A British Master Spy: The Memoirs of Sidney Reilly

If you ever though that the James Bond story lines were a bit far fetched,  then you should read this book. Kiki says Much of what is thought to be known about him could be false, as Reilly was a master of deception, and most of his life is shrouded in legend". Even if half of it is a true account of what Sidney got up to for British Intelligence, it is still almost unbelievable.  Mind you, James bond was not cast as a Russian Jew.

Dem Clouds Look Real Heavy

 This afternoon's rain clouds looked so laden with water that they could have crashed to earth.

Very dramatic.

Gallery Spot Lights

New spot lights for the wall hung paintings, using LED's powered by batteries.  I's very pleased with the results.  I think that was a humblebrag.

Gallery lights

New lights for the gallery installed together with 30 new paintings done by Gek over our six week stay in Singapore.  Turner and Monet look a likes.  Very good they are too.  I need now to make the 30 frames each made up of 8 machined parts.  That should keep me busy!!!
