Balloon Poppers

There's a fair bit of ballooon and trident activity bustling around the blogs. This statue and the balloon flight seem to go together if we imagine the ballooon getting popped by the Trident. All sorts of meanings maybe gleaned, I feel sure.

David Niven's autobigraphy has the title ' The Moon's a Balloon'

Oh, no kidding? Didn't David play 007 in the original "Casino Royale"?

Gotta check into that book. Great one!

Oh Yeah, so he did. Passed me by , which of course it shouldn't have. David Niven, attended Grace Kelly's wedding, and no doubt his career could be a well of synchromysticism. I have read the book, which has a pretty unfashionable ending, and perhaps gives an insight into Bond,s character.
I feel Fleming might have given a fair bit of knowledge of the Transnational community.
The opening scene was filmed in Ford's building in Prague, a wholly glass affair, a place very flooded in 2002. I will start work there in a couple of weeks.

There are some other connections. Obviously, "Around the World in 80 Days" (1956) and the TV Mini-series from 1989 which starred "Bond" Pierce Brosnan...not to mention Christopher Lee.
