• London-born Ian Fleming published his first James Bond novel Casino Royale in 1953. Fleming wrote the book in two months at his Jamaican vacation home. It was met with positive reviews and sold out its first and second month. Fleming himself had worked for British Naval Intelligence during World War II and was well-acquainted with the world of espionage, an experience he used to shape his novels. He based the character of Bond’s boss “M” after his own superior in the Navy, Admiral Sir John Godfrey. • Fleming named his spy James Bond after a noted ornithologist, Dr. James Bond, who had written a book on birdwatching that Fleming had on hand. Fleming said, “I wanted the simplest, dullest, plainest-sounding name I could think of. James Bond seemed perfect.” The number 007 was the bus route Fleming frequently used between London and Canterbury. WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS? Publish a

JAMES BOND (continued): • The fictional Bond’s parents were a Scots gentleman Andrew Bond, employed by a weapons company, and a Swiss woman named Monique Delacroix. When his parents died when James was 11, he was sent to live with an aunt, was enrolled at Eton, and was recruited into the Royal Navy. (Fleming also attended Eton and was involved in naval intelligence). • Fleming wrote a Bond novel every year until his death in 1964, a total of 12. Since then, seven other authors have continued the series, including John Gardner who penned GoldenEye, which became the 17th Bond film. Fleming gave the name GoldenEye to his Jamaican vacation retreat which overlooked the Caribbean, after a World War II military mission he had developed in the event the Nazis invaded Spain. After Fleming’s death, the estate was sold to Bob Marley. • The 1958 novel Dr. No came to the big screen in 1962, the first of 23 Eon Productions “official” James Bond films. A casting contest was held to find the perfect James Bond, seeking a man age 28 to 35, about 6 feet tall, with dark hair, and a British accent. Sean Connery landed the role, edging out Cary Grant and Richard Burton. Dr. No was the only official Bond film seen by Ian Fleming before his death in 1964. • Between 1962 and 1967, Sean Connery starred as James Bond four more times in From Russia with Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, and You Only Live Twice before retiring from the role. Timothy Dalton was strongly considered as his replacement, but declined, saying that age 25, he was too young for the role. Adam West (Batman) was offered the part, but said no, believing that Bond should be a British actor.

JAMES BOND (continued) • In 1969, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service was released, starring a 30-year-old Australian former used car salesman, George Lazenby. Lazenby’s acting experience was almost nonexistent, having most recently appeared in a TV commercial for chocolate bars. For his screen test, he purchased a custom-made suit ordered by Connery, who had failed to pick it up at the tailor’s. He added a Rolex watch and went to Connery’s barber to add to his look. It was Lazenby’s only Bond film. • The studio was advised to bring back Sean Connery, no matter what the cost, and in 1971, Connery returned in Diamonds Are Forever, for a $1.25 million salary and 12.5% of the profits. He donated the entire base salary to a Scottish education charity. This would be the last Bond film Connery made for Eon Productions, although he starred in a non-Eon move, Never Say Never Again in 1983. • Connery wore a toupee in all of his Bond films. During the filming of a fight scene in Diamonds Are Forever, Connery’s opponent accidentally pulled off the toupee.

• In 1973, Roger Moore stepped into the role for Live and Let Die, a Bond with a more comical air about him. Moore is the current record holder for the most Bond films with seven, including The Man with the Golden Gun, The Spy Who Loved Me, and For Your Eyes Only. His final Bond film was 1985’s A View To Kill, when he was 58 years old, making him also the oldest James Bond actor. With all the firearms used on the movie set, Moore had to overcome his hoplophobia, the fear of weapons, the result of a childhood accident when he was shot in the leg by his brother with an air rifle.

• In 1984, Pierce Brosnan’s wife had a part in For Your Eyes Only, and met producer Albert Broccoli on the movie set. Roger Moore was preparing to step down from the role, and Broccoli felt Brosnan would be the perfect replacement. Brosnan was offered the role in 1986, but was forced to decline due to his contract for the TV series Remington Steele. Timothy Dalton then got another chance at the Bond role, when he was selected for 1987’s The Living Daylights and 1989’s Licence to Kill, bringing a more serious interpretation of the character back into the role after Moore’s light-hearted approach.

MOMENTS IN TIME • On Nov. 6, 1789, Pope Pius VI appoints John Carroll bishop of Baltimore, making him the first Catholic bishop in the United States. He oversaw the creation of leading Catholic institutions, including the nation's first Catholic university, Georgetown University, founded in 1789. • On Nov. 7, 1885, at a remote spot called Craigellachie in the mountains of British Columbia, the last spike is driven into Canada's first transcontinental railway. Despite the logistical difficulties posed, the almost 3,000-mile-long railway was completed six years ahead of schedule. • On Nov. 9, 1946, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Army Cadets play to a historic 0-0 tie at Yankee Stadium in New York. Notre Dame-Army was college football's biggest rivalry. Football tickets typically cost $1 to $5, but many fans had paid scalpers as much as $250, equal to $3,200 in today's dollars. • On Nov. 4, 1956, a spontaneous national uprising that began 12 days before in Hungary is viciously crushed by Soviet tanks and troops.

The History Channel

Thousands were killed and wounded, and nearly a quarter-million Hungarians fled the country. The Soviet action stunned many in the West, as Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev had pledged a retreat from the Stalinist repression of the past. • On Nov. 3, 1964, residents of the District of Columbia cast their ballots in a presidential election for the first time. The passage of the 23rd Amendment in 1961 gave citizens of the nation's capital the right to vote for a president and vice president. • On Nov. 8, 1974, Salt Lake City resident Carol DaRonch narrowly escapes being abducted by serial killer Ted Bundy. When Bundy was finally captured in 1978 in Florida, he confessed to the murders of 28 women, and was executed in 1989. • On Nov. 5, 1994, George Foreman, age 45, becomes boxing's oldest heavyweight champion when he KOs undefeated 26-yearold Michael Moorer in the 10th round of their WBA fight. Foreman dedicated his upset win to "all my buddies in the nursing home."

• There was a four-year gap before the return of James Bond, this time in the form of Daniel Craig, who was met with a negative reaction. However, it didn’t take long for filmgoers to take a liking to the new Bond in 2006’s Casino Royale. It was followed up with Quantum of Solace in 2008. The year of Bond’s 50th anniversary, 2012, marked the release of Skyfall, which has become the highest-grossing Bond film of all time, overtaking Thunderball, starring Connery, which had held the title for 47 years. Craig is the first Bond actor to be younger than the Bond series.

HEART ATTACK FACTS • 37% of all deaths in the United States are related to heart disease, making it the largest single cause of natural death. Heart disease kills twice as many people as all forms of cancer combined. The major causes are smoking, fatty diet, high blood pressure, obesity, stress, heredity, lack of exercise, and diabetes. It is an illness produced of man's environment. Before 1900, heart attacks were very rare. The rate of heart disease increased so sharply between 1940 and 1967 that the World Health Organization called it the world’s most serious epidemic. • Every single cell in the heart is guided by an electrical impulse which synchronizes the heartbeat so all muscle cells contract in unison to pump the blood. During a heart attack, the cells begin firing out of turn so the efficiency of the heart is lost and the blood does not get pumped. When doctors shock the heart, the shock overrides each cell’s individual firing mechanism and once again synchronizes every cell, hopefully getting them all to work together again.

FAMOUS CANADIANS:

JOHN CANDY

Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, funny man John Candy made us all laugh with his comedy roles. Let’s look at his Canadian roots and subsequent success. • Candy was a native of Newmarket, Ontario. At age four, he lost his 35-year-old car salesman father to a heart attack, an event that followed John Candy his entire life. He attended a strict Catholic high school, where he was active in football and hockey. An injury brought his athletic ambitions to an end, but it allowed Candy to pursue his love of comedy and acting. He improved his skills at Toronto’s Centennial Community College, modeling his comedy after the likes of Abbott & Costello, Jackie Gleason, and the Three Stooges. • After a few bit parts in Canadian TV, Candy encountered fellow Canadian and struggling young comedian Dan Aykroyd, who persuaded him to try out for the Second City improvisational comedy troupe in Toronto. Candy was invited to join the main troupe in Chicago, where he united with other upcoming stars including Gilda Radner, John Belushi, Eugene Levy, and Bill Murray. This group became part of a new TV series called SCTV in 1976, of which Candy’s impersonations of celebrities was a huge part. • Candy began getting significant roles in 1979, beginning with Steven Spielberg’s 1941, alongside his friend Dan Aykroyd. He appeared again with Akyroyd the following year in the hit The Blues Brothers. 1981 brought a role in Stripes, then another in 1983’s National Lampoon’s Vacation. But his breakout role was in 1984’s Splash, a comedy about a mermaid who washes ashore, in which he played Tom Hanks’ brother.

• Candy is also fondly remembered for his role in 1987’s Spaceballs and Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. Candy’s success of 1989 was the wildlypopular Uncle Buck. • Even with the success of Home Alone in 1990, Candy’s career took a bit of a dive, as he appeared in several unsuccessful films in the early part of the decade. He renewed his success with a dramatic role in Oliver Stone’s JFK, and in 1993’s Cool Runnings, in which he played the coach of the real-life first Jamaican bobsled team. • Candy’s leisure activities included his 20-acre farm 50 miles north of Toronto, where he and his wife were raising their two children. In 1991, he also became part owner, along with Wayne Gretzky and Bruce McNall, of the Canadian Football League’s Toronto Argonauts. • With both his father’s and grandfather’s deaths from heart attacks always in the back of his mind, the 325-lb. Candy often tried crash diets and joined gyms. However, his success was brief and fleeting, with the weight always finding its way back. At one time, his weight ballooned to 375 lbs. and his waistline grew to 59 inches. He also smoked a pack of cigarettes a day, which, along with the weight and lack of exercise, contributed to his death by heart attack in 1994 at age 43 while filming the western comedy Wagons East in Mexico. The film was released five months after Candy’s death, with several scenes needing to have his image digitally inserted. • John Candy appeared in 40 feature films over the course of his career.

• The Bond films have been filled with interesting gadgets and weaponry, along with some pretty fast cars. But these weren’t Ian Fleming’s only stories about fascinating automobiles. In 1964, Fleming penned the story Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for his young son Caspar. The story about a magical flying car was made into a musical film in 1968, starring Dick van Dyke and produced by Albert Broccoli. It was the only non-Bond film Broccoli produced after the Bond series began.

• Beautiful women have always been a significant part of the Bond films and gave many actresses their start in the movie business. The very first Bond girl was Swiss-born Ursula Andress, who had the role of Honey Ryder in 1962’s Dr. No. Andress received a Golden Globe for the New Star of the Year for her work. Her career was set, as she appeared the following year with Elvis Presley in Fun in Acapulco, and went on to star in nearly 30 movies and several television appearances.
