My Royal Dutch Bond

With Putin threatening a Royal Dutch naval vessel, the Roozemond family are not innocent bystanders safely watching the action. Why the title “Royal Netherlands Navy”? My ignorant daughter and her wicked drunken family do not get to use me for target practice anymore.

I am going to make Miriam Starfish Christling a Ukranian. Ian Fleming was a reporter before he became a leader of British Naval Intelligence. My characters are a literary extension of this branch, created to fight tyranny, and not to make money. I have been tempted to make Victoria and Miriam non-bisexual, but there go the real contrast. In liberal – is Liberty!

Amsterdam Welcomes Putin With Rainbows (rferl.org)

The Royal Netherlands Navy has now confirmed that its De Zeven Provincien class frigate HNLMS Evertsen, which has been sailing in the Black Sea together with the U.K. Royal Navy destroyer HMS Defender, was harassed by Russian fighter jets last week. The announcement comes after Russia and the United Kingdom entered something of a war of words last week when the Type 45 destroyer HMS Defender conducted maneuvers in an area close to Russian-controlled Crimea. Both of these ships are currently part of the British aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth’s multinational strike group, also known as Carrier Strike Group 21, or CSG21.

The Royal Netherlands Navy today released a statement highlighting the events that occurred last Thursday, June 24. That was the day after Russia claimed to have dropped bombs and fired warning shots to ward off HMS Defender, which Moscow claimed had violated the Russian maritime border around the Crimean Peninsula. The Kremlin seized Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, an annexation that neither the Netherlands nor the United Kingdom recognizes as legal.

From Reporter to British Spy

Shortly before Britain entered World War II, Ian Fleming was working as a reporter for the London Times. He was regarded as a superb writer and a man who had more than his share of contacts. He traveled to the old Soviet Union, where he covered the Metro-Vickers trial in which three British citizens were charged by the Russian secret police on trumped-up charges. His reports on the trial gave him a wide following and his name became known in the right places.

After a stint as a London stockbroker, a job he disliked, he was plucked from obscurity into the dazzling work of naval intelligence as the personal assistant to Admiral John Godfrey, then head of British Naval Intelligence. Working out of Room 39, also known as NID (Naval Intelligence Division), Ian Fleming sat at the helm of all British naval intelligence and was privy to all the secrets of the far-flung British naval empire. Fleming began this military career part-time with the rank of lieutenant but soon commander, with three stripes on his sleeve. (In his fictionalized books, 007 was also a commander.) Admiral Godfrey wrote complimentary reports on his new aide, stating at one point, “Ian carr[ied] out the multifarious duties of personal assistant, a job which has no defined frontiers, with outstanding success.”

US. Navy Dismisses Russian Media Claims Its Warship Approached Crimea (msn.com)

The U.S. Navy has dismissed reports that its destroyer, which is in the Black Sea for large-scale NATO-led military drills, had sailed towards Crimea in a provocative action.

Claims emanated from Russia that USS Ross, which is in the region for the Sea Breeze 2021 drills that started this week, had headed towards the peninsula, which Moscow annexed in 2014.

The Royal Netherlands Navy (Dutch: Koninklijke Marine) is the naval force of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.[2] Its origins date back to the Eighty Years’ War (1568–1648), the war of independence from the House of Habsburg who ruled over the Habsburg Netherlands.

During the 17th century, the navy of the Dutch Republic (1581–1795) was the most powerful naval force in the world and played an active role in the Anglo-Dutch Wars, the Franco-Dutch War, and wars against Spain and several other European powers.

The Russian parliament passed a bill in January forbidding the dissemination of “gay propaganda” to minors, a vague pronouncement that may include parades, protests, and the use of the rainbow flag. The law, which awaits Putin’s approval, would fine offenders up to 500,000 rubles ($16,000).

In Amsterdam, the evening protest quickly turned into a block party as thousands congregated across from the museum where Putin was dining with Queen Beatrix. Dressed in every color of the rainbow, the crowd waved homemade posters; “Putin go homo” and “I’m a person, not a propaganda” slogans were popular, as well as the simplistically elegant “F*** you, dictator.”

It Passes

It passes
it passes
but it always comes back
because it's in me.
I can drink it away but it does not drown
I can push it away but my shadow catches it
I can laugh at it but also stop laughing
I have to accept it, but I do not want the truth to be true.

Victoria Bond attended Le Rosey, and was the epitome of a Rosey Brat, a truth she wants to leave far behind her. She had a anonymous patron. Some suspect the Agha Kahn took her under his wings. Her peers spread rumors, and called her a Royal Slut and Mistress of the one of the wealthiest men in the world. But, it was his wife who adopted Lara from afar, for all the right reasons. This lovely woman called Victoria

The Imperial Riding Cup

Posted on April 19, 2018by Royal Rosamond Press

The Imperial Riding Cup

Lara Roozemond can ride a horse like this. She competed in the Imperial Riding Cup. This is a plus for ‘The Bond Woman’. I am fashioning a glass slipper for Lara’s foot. When I looked at her on Instagram, a Jaguar ad appeared. She’s a……….Horseshoe in?

Lara rode ‘No Angel’. This will be the title of a chapter, a scene from ‘The Royal Janitor’. Where after competing, she drives willy-nilly to the Horseshoe Inn. This is her hoof stomping ground. Belting down a shot of Kentucky Bourbon, she spots the Austrian who competed in the Men’s event.

“Look at the hindquarters on that one. And those eyes. He reeks of good breeding. I must have him!”

And off she slinks across the room, like a black panther. The female bartender shakes her head. She has seen this predator in action before. They call her the Black Widow, for, she loves them and leaves them – devastated! She is utterly crazy and dysfunctional when she gets like this, And it is not the whisky.

Victoria’s girlfriend comes in and sees she has her prey cornered.

“She shouldn’t get on a horse. She thinks she is the reincarnation of a Centauride. She was a shut-in as a child, and read a lot. She has an altar to Hera. She believe men fucked the worship of her all up. She is out for revenge.

Uh-oh. He’s feeling dominated and wants the upper hand. If he touches her in a superior manner, she’ll kick the shit out him! She knows French Foot Boxing. When her eyes start blazing, and she declares “I am Arion!” best cut her off.”

I want my female Bond to be half mad, for what was done to her.  Note the pic of Lara and her lover in the lower right-hand corner. I love this shot! This is her inner black panthers taking control. (add smile) You can not write good poetry – unless you are mad! Did I tell you Victoria has committed to memory a million poems? Don’t let her corner you when she’s…..in the mood.

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.[4]

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.”[9] 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.
