    60 miles is a wee bit too far. The closest one to me is Dawsonville, 31 miles. Still a tad far.

    Billy Joe Shaver dead at 81. Billy Joe wrote a bunch of songs that Waylon Jennings recorded.

    Affectionately known as the “Wacko from Waco,” Shaver was born in nearby Corsicana, Texas, and made his mark in 1973 when he released his debut album, Old Five and Dimers Like Me, and Waylon Jennings recorded nine of his songs for the landmark album, Honky Tonk Heroes.

    I don't think so. Niven was in Casino Royale in 1967. Connery was in Dr. No in 1962/3.
    C.R. was a spoof of the Bond movies. It was utter crap but I still enjoy it.:D
    It was a mess from from conception with the producer running afoul of the Broccoli/Salzman company forcing the the film to be completely changed. It used approximate 9 screenwriters at different times to complete the script.
    It was a real cluster......
    And they did try to get Connery as Bond but they only offered him a million dollars so he said no. He'd done 5 Bond films by then so was in big demand.

    There was one previous Bond film before Dr. No that I'm aware of, though I've never seen it. It was a 1954 television production of Casino Royale! I knew who the actor was that played Bond but it's completely gone from my memory, although I can picture him. I think he might have played a PI on a tv show in the late 50s.
