Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Kick Back Moments: The President Kennedy, James Bond & St. Patrick's Day Connection

Peggy Strack's Kick Back Moments features The President Kennedy, James Bond & St. Patrick's Day Connection. I dare say I would have never put these three together as having any kind of connection. Maybe JFK and St. Patrick's Day because of the Irish connection. But James Bond? Um-m-m-m? Now that raises some eyebrows.

How much do you know about James Bond or his creator Ian Fleming? Do you think Mr. Fleming's books were an instant success? Did he reach #1 best seller with his first book? Were his works ever criticized?

After all, look who we are talking about...James Bond, intriguing, sexy, with dark, rather cruel good looks! To learn more about this unusual connection, visit Peggy Strack's Kick Back Moments: The President Kennedy, James Bond & St. Patrick's Day Connection.

All I am going to say here is look at this book... Now, you should really be hooked for we have gone from the Irish to Russia!

Peggy Strack is the author of A Stop in the Park. "An engaging and hope-filled novel."—Kirkus Reviews 

"This was one of those books, that as soon as I put it down, I couldn't wait to get back to it. Each reader can find a message that speaks to her/him. Gives us all food for thought."


  1. My favourite Bond is Daniel Craig

  2. Thanks for posting the link to Peggy's blog post. Sean Connery is my favorite Bond, but Pierce Brosnan is a close second.

  3. What a great hook. Who would have thought there was a connection?

  4. Never would have thought of that! I agree with Sandy that Sean Connery was my favorite Bond, but I really liked Pierce Brosnan too.
