My kinship to Ian Fleming via Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, has taken on a very real import. You who oppose Trump have got to look at those who depict the EU as the home of the Antichrist. Look for motive. Use your mind.

Evelyn St. Croix Fleming, born Evelyn Beatrice Sainte Croix Rose, in Kensington, London, known as Eve Fleming (1885 – 27 July 1964), was an English socialite.
Evelyn Rose was the daughter of George Alfred Sainte Croix Rose (31 January 1854 – 14 February 1926), a Captain in the service of the Royal Buckinghamshire Militia (King’s Own) and Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for Berkshire, son of the 1st Baronet Rose, of Rayners, by his marriage on 8 April 1880 to Beatrice Quain (1857 – 4 January 1911), the daughter of Sir Richard Quain, 1st Baronet, graduated with a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.). On 15 February 1906 she married Valentine Fleming (1882–1917), and by that marriage was the mother of four sons: Peter Fleming, Ian Fleming – the novelist who wrote the James Bond books, Richard Fleming and Michael Fleming. She was known for her flamboyant beauty.
After her husband’s death in action in the Great War in May 1917, Evelyn Fleming inherited his large estate in trust, making her very wealthy. However, the conditions of the money in trust transferred it to others should she ever re-marry. She became the mistress of painter Augustus John, with whom she had a daughter, the cellist Amaryllis Fleming.
She died only two weeks before the death of her son Ian on 12 August 1964.

It was indeed Daisy who first wore the Dali inspired “Shoe Hat”, which Dali sketched for Elsa in 1937.

A Ian Fleming Revival
‘The Deal of the Art’
Monica de Mornay Del La Croix watched the rise of her son in the Admiralty with amusement. But, now that the war was over, anyone who was somebody, took a keen interest in the art collection of Hitler’s top brass. The looted art was hands off, but, there was the art that belonged to the aristocracy, that was considered war booty. Henriech Himmler allegedly took it upon himself to rescue the art treasures from the stately homes in Berlin before the advance of the Russians. This art was never found. Then there were Berlin’s museums. Curators moved their art treasures the day after the first allied bombing. All of this was considered war booty, and up for grabs.
James had turned down his mother’s job offer for a position at Loyd’s of London, and Sothebys.
“Get close to the de Rougemonts. They are locking up the world!” Monica said as upon a stage, then came to hover over her son who was in his desk drawer looking for surviving bottle scotch whiskey.
She then tried to hook her son up with Hoaward Young, the art dealer, who was purchasing European Art for wealthy American millionairs.
“I don’t know a thing about art!” James announced proudly, hoping this would put an end his mother’s latest ambition for him.
“Its not a matter of what you know, but who you know! Daisy Fellowes has the hots for you and is between husbands. She is related to Winston Churchill. If you allow her to bed you, she will move you up through the ranks! Everyone in the Royal Navy is after her.”
“Mother! Are you pimping me out?”
“Yes! You are giving it away – for free! How many artists friends do you know, who act like whores around their patrons? Daisy can help you round them up and put them in the Bond & Fellowes stable.”
“Hmm! Bond & Fellowes Art Gallery of London. It has a substantial ring to it. Why not throw in the latest fashions?”
“I don’t trust you will get anything done with all those young models around.”
Monica de Mornay watched her son take in the whole hook, with his mother’s disapproval of him being a womanizer – and a cad! She employed the Rebel Child gambit on him, that she knew would not last forever. Her son was surrounded by those Eaton chaps that were taught how to be clever, and nothing more. They were not ready for the Blitzkrieg. They thought it was going to be another long drawn out chess game. They did not expect their opponent to lunge across the board and plant a dagger in their gut.
The next call would be to her calling card company. She knew her clever son was into giving his name with aplomb;
“Bond. James Bond. Here’ my card!”
Bond & Fellowes
Daisy was now considered the Muse of the Century. Where there is a muse, look for an artist close by. John Singer Sargent did a portrait of Daisy, which got the attention of his rival, Augustus John, who lured the famous actress, Tallulah Bankhead, to his home in that would soon become the home of Francis Taylor. His mother, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was there, as was Elizabeth’s sister, Mable Rosemond Young, who was married to Art Dealer, Howard Young, who was a good friend of General Eisenhower. They played a lot poker, with other brass included high ranking allied brass. Monica played her calling card on the Rosemond sister from America.
“Do you know Baron John Rose of Canada? I am kin to all the Rose Barons.”
Monica instantly regretted her name dropping. The look these American women gave her was a put down she had never experienced. She apologized before she heard;
“We grew up with a work horse named Rose.”
“And, a chicken!”
The rumor has it The Boys played for Art, art that was turned over to the allied commanders by their troops. After ascertaining it was German art, Howard arranged for buyers. This was all under the table. This art seeded American companies that took advantage of the technology that the war produced. Several Airlines took off with art belonging to families with Von in their name. This is…….The Untold Renaissance!
Everyone got it, if those Sad Sacks from the Ozarks found out they were being aced out, there would be another American Revolution. The poor hate a rigged game. Booty will be Booty. That’s how it goes, the wages of war.
When Daisy accompanied Tallulah to her first sitting with John, she was introduced to Taylor’s two children. She was struck my the color of their eyes. All the Rosemond women had these purple-blue eyes. They wanted to meet the movie star, who looked perturbed, as did Augustus. She didn’t get what he wanted – from her! Here was Hollywood Royalty, and she looked like she was heading to the barn to milk the cows. She didn’t have – IT!
“And, what are you going to be when you grow up?” Daisy asked Elizabeth.
“I’m going to be a horse trainer. Do you want see my pony uncle Howard gave me?”
