I never saw the movie ‘On Her Majesties Secret Service’. I looked at it for the first time four days ago. I now wonder if I am the embodiment if Ian (Jon) Fleming who died in 1964. I had a near-death experience in 1967. In 1999, I designed a coat of arms for Ambrosius, which my surname stems from. Braskewitz appears to mean ‘Son of Ambrose’. There are some amazing parallels, and a convergence. My cote of arms contains the Jewish letter LAMED which I saw as a Dragon. Merlin was name Ambrosius when a boy. He encounters the red and white dragon. NAZIR stands for Nazarite who let their hair grow long. There is a method to my Armorial Madness. Merlin is a candidate for the Anti-Christ, which I find amusing because he is always a threat to expose the false church.
If Ian had a choice, he would come back as Merlin. Who else? I believe Lara is my Vivian. Does she have a choice? We three appear to be in the same family tree. It is written!
If there is no Magic, there is no England, and, nothing worth fighting for.
Merlin Ambrosius, or Myrddin Emrys
Geoffrey’s account of Merlin Ambrosius’ early life in the Historia Regum Britanniae is based on the story of Ambrosius in the Historia Brittonum. He adds his own embellishments to the tale, which he sets in Carmarthen, Wales (Welsh: Caerfyrddin). While Nennius’ Ambrosius eventually reveals himself to be the son of a Roman consul, Geoffrey’s Merlin is begotten on a king’s daughter by an incubus demon. (The name of Merlin’s mother is not usually stated, but is given as Adhan in the oldest version of the Prose Brut.) The story of Vortigern’s tower is essentially the same; the underground dragons, one white and one red, represent the Saxons and the British, and their final battle is a portent of things to come.
At this point Geoffrey inserts a long section of Merlin’s prophecies, taken from his earlier Prophetiae Merlini. He tells only two further tales of the character. In the first, Merlin creates Stonehenge as a burial place for Aurelius Ambrosius. In the second, Merlin’s magic enables the British king Uther Pendragon to enter into Tintagel in disguise and father his son Arthur with his enemy’s wife, Igraine. These episodes appear in many later adaptations of Geoffrey’s account. As Lewis Thorpe notes, Merlin disappears from the narrative after this; he does not tutor and advise Arthur as in later versions.
On a visit to the College of Arms, Bond finds that the family motto of Sir Thomas Bond is “The World Is Not Enough”, and that he might be (though unlikely) Bond’s ancestor. On the pretext that a genetically-inherited minor physical abnormality (a lack of earlobes) needs a personal confirmation, Bond impersonates a College of Arms representative, Sir Hilary Bray, to visit Blofeld’s lair atop Piz Gloria, a fictional mountain top in the Engadin, somewhere between Samedan and Pontresina,[note 1] where he finally meets Blofeld. Blofeld has undergone plastic surgery partly to remove his earlobes, but also to disguise himself from the police and security services who are tracking him down.
My dream was to see my grandson attend Le Rosey where Liz Taylor’s children attended. I would pay his tuition from the sales of my book ‘Bonds With Angels’. After reading Snyder’s book of Art Lies, I see he and Patrice suffered from severe low self-esteem, and thus they had to whittle us down, render us dangerous lunatics, and Rosey She-things. If the Gallery Gargoyles had not been so keen on promoting Rosemary’s Whacky Art House, then Drew Benton could have attended Rosey, too. Perhaps it is not too late.
Liz’s children found it very gauche to be posed with Micky Mouse. After they saw the Ancestral Chateau, the Sleeping Beauty castle – was a joke! Tyler Hunt is in the Getty family tree. I wanted him to be a Country Swell and go goat hunting in the Alps with the grandchildren of the Agha Khan. Pia Getty went to Rosey. None of my family will give me the time of day!
“Time for tea!” Tyler says, taking out his grandpa’s watch.
“What does that say on the cover?” Salmon Khan asks.
“Royal Rosamond Press!”
Let us look at the alternative cosmologies Heather (Patrice tee-hee) suggested as a place to baptize Tyler Hunt. Posing as my daughter, Patrice zeros in on her comfort zone, a place where she feel comfortable and accepted. It’s all about Patrice – whether you know it or not! Ha! Ha!
“Anyhow, my Mom was actually planning on going to Global Heart’s Spiritual Center on Easter. She would love for us to join her. It is a new church that is much like
You might be able to research it on the internet for more info. Well, I better get ready for the day. Love you.”
What? Who uses language like this -today! Disney did – sixty years ago! When Patrice and her boys lived with me, she lay her Mary Poppins Hippie Pixie Dust on me all the time in order to prove hippie women got enlightened by taking LSD, too! This stage mother showed me a video of Heather when she was fifteen dressed up in a Tinkerbelle outfit her mother made for her. I asked her if it was Halloween.
“No. I just wanted to do it!”
Do you think Heather would disobey mommies wishes, her plan she made to meet me for the first time – and my family? This is her Baby Doll, her Pinocchio she has on a string! This e-mail was written in the morning. A little happy whistle music, maestro!
“Well, I better get ready for the day. ”
How beautiful! I wish was there when my child was born instead of the Great Imposter and Con Artist, Randolph Delpiano. But, it wasn’t meant to be!
Pia Christina Miller Getty (born 1966), is an American independent filmmaker. She is the oldest daughter of businessman Robert Warren Miller and sister of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece and Denmark and Princess Alexandra von Fürstenberg, a trio famously dubbed the Miller Sisters.
In 1992 in Bali, she married Getty Oil heir Christopher Ronald Getty, son of Jean Ronald Getty and grandson of Jean Paul Getty. The couple has four children, Isabel (b. 1993), Robert Maximilian (b. 1996), Conrad (b. 1998), and Maximus (b. 2002). They divorced in 2005. She is the godmother of her niece, Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark.
Her first feature documentary film, China Power – Art Now After Mao, released in 2008, focused on China’s burgeoning art scene.
Institut Le Rosey (French pronunciation: [ɛ̃stity lə ʁo.zɛ]), commonly referred to as Le Rosey or simply Rosey, is a boarding school in Rolle, Switzerland. It was founded by Paul-Émile Carnal in 1880 on the site of the 14th-century Château du Rosey in the town of Rolle in the Canton of Vaud. It is one of the oldest boarding schools in Switzerland.
The school also owns a campus in the ski resort village of Gstaad in the Canton of Bern, to where the student body, faculty, and staff move during the months of January through March. In 2015, the son of the fourth director of Le Rosey Philippe Gudin, Christophe Gudin, became the fifth one. Michael Gray is the headmaster.
Le Rosey’s philosophy is inspired by what Harvard educationalist Howard Gardner has called “multiple intelligences“: “its aim is to develop all Roseans’ talents through academic, sporting and artistic programmes.” The school offers a demanding bilingual and bicultural education with the language of instruction being French or English depending on the student’s academic program; however, students may take many language classes while at Le Rosey.
It is known as the school of kings, counting among its alumni the Shah of Iran, Prince Rainier of Monaco and King Farouk of Egypt. Its catchment area was once the glittering palaces that housed the grandest families on the Continent: the Metternichs, the Borgheses and the Hohenlohes.
But Institut Le Rosey is now spreading its net to humble old Britain. For the first time in its 135-year history, the prestigious Swiss boarding school has been recruiting gilt-edged pupils, aged seven to 18, in London.
Co-educational since 1967, it is keen to claim a slice of a market hitherto dominated by British boarding schools such as Eton and Harrow.
But at £80,000 a year – more than twice their fees – the most expensive school in the world will hardly be cherry-picking the brightest and best middle-class British pupils. Their parents find British school fees steep enough already.
London, however, has become the city of choice for the world’s richest parents so is also home to the world’s richest kids. And it is they who formed the target audience for Le Rosey’s recruitment drive last week, held at the city’s Swiss Embassy.
There has long been a tiny British contingent at the school, making up five per cent of its 400 pupils. Its intake hails from 63 countries, with no more than 10% of its students coming from any one country, to prevent a single nationality dominating.
Sir Roger Moore and Elizabeth Taylor sent their children there. John Lennon’s son Sean studied there too, as did the Duke of Kent and Winston Spencer Churchill, grandson of the wartime Prime Minister.
I am the embodiment of Wolfdietrich. We were both born during a starshower and thus are associated with Revelations 12 ‘The Woman and the Dragon’. I carry a sword called ‘Rose’ that once belonged to Ornitt. I pulled it from the dragon he slay. Now, I come to the Rose Garden to joist with brave knights. There are wondrous maidens and queens in this story. For models I employ the images of Lara Roozemond and Georgiana Spencer – with their permission of course. They could pass for sisters. There will be nine muses who protect nine famous museums, the Rose Mund. For Wolfdietrich I use the photo the artist ‘Rosamond’ took of me. He is a combination of Wolfdietrich and Dietrich Von Bern.
I hope there is no problem with an old man having young muses as guides. I have bonded with very beautiful women, and grew up with the Rosamond sisters. I have seen the world thru these women’s eyes. My first girlfriend, Marilyn Reed, and I have become old together. We are very close and share our world view constantly. We are timeless. We are The Eternal Return. Her Geoffrey ancestors came from France.
Fifteen years ago I made a cote of arms for Prescowitz-Braskewitz a name from Bohemia that I suspect means Ambrose the name of Merlin as a boy. A boy nestled in wings is from Ambrose heraldry. Broderick is a family name and I liked the nibs in their cote of arms since I am a writer. They are a titled Midleton family. I turned the Hebrew letter L into a Welsh dragon. I am a Seer. I can see the Future. I own the eyes of a Dragon. The future has been looking faint, even non-existence. This is why I will throw off my cloak and reveal who I am.
“Dietleib then came with all their weapons, and with the prince he fought fiercely against the dwarfs. At length Dietrich wrenched from one of them a golden ring. He gave it unto Hildebrand, and his sight was restored. Then did the old warrior enter the conflict. The dwarfs fell fast before them. Thousands were put to death, for there was none in Laurin’s castle who could prevail against the three great warriors.”

Wolfdietrich is a German hero of romance. The tale of Wolfdietrich is connected with the Merovingian princes, Theodoric and Theodebert, son and grandson of Clovis; but in the Middle High German poems of Ortnit and Wolfdietrich in the Heldenbuch.
Wolfdietrich is the son of Hugdietrich, emperor of Constantinople. Repudiated and exposed by his father, the child was spared by the wolves of the forest, and was educated by the faithful Berchtung of Meran. The account of his parents and their wooing, however, differs in various texts. After the emperor’s death, Wolfdietrich was driven from his inheritance by his brothers at the instigation of the traitor Sabene. Berchtung and his sixteen sons stood by Wolfdietrich. Six of these were slain and the other ten imprisoned. It was only after long exile in Lombardy at the court of King Ortnit that the hero returned to deliver the captives and regain his kingdom.
“Snatch off his waist girdle,” Hildebrand cried.
Ere long Dietrich possessed himself of the magic girdle, which gave to the dwarf his great strength. Then the prince had him in his power. He cast the
The South Tyrol saga of King Laurin (German: König Laurin, Ladin: Re Laurin, Italian: Re Laurino) is part of a popular tradition in the Dolomites. It is a popular explanation of the optical phenomenon of Alpenglow (Ladin: Enrosadira), by which the summit of the mountains change their color to shades of red and purple during and after sunset. King Laurin’s legend is also considered to be the source of the German name of the Rosengarten group (Italian: Catinaccio) between South Tyrol and the Trentino.

FIRST be it told of the lady Kunhild’s brother, Dietleib the Dane. He had fame in his own land for strength and prowess, and great and glorious were the deeds of his sire, the brave Yarl Biterolf. It chanced that when the three journeyed towards Bern they were set upon by Heime and his robber band in the midst of a forest. Boldly fought the Danes, and the robbers were all killed, save Heime alone, whom Dietleib, with his sword Welsung, wounded on the forehead and put to flight.
