American vs British thriller

Why are there no thriller spy novels or crime novels where the Main Investigator is American and ends up in London or vice versa? Cross Atlantic intrigue? Or have I not found them.
Are British thrillers and American plots so different? Americans love a good government conspiracy — this goes back to our roots of how and why we had to leave the Homeland, the Mother Country in the first place (English Civil War, I’m thinking of you mate!).
Not sure if this is so with Britain. Britain has Sherlock Holmes in its cultural background, but James Bond was a post-War invention by Ian Fleming who supposedly did some espionage work with some sort of secret agency. Are British fears / thriller points more about those who want to invade UK from without? As a small island nation, that might be primo in its goings on.

Not that I want to see Sherlock Holmes meet Dashiell Hammet or anything. YET London-Los Angeles stories would be so so interesting because they are polar opposites in so many ways. And yet so similar too.

Royal Trifles

My plan was to make a trifle today in honor of the Royal Wedding, but then I realized as I was looking for the ingredients to buy that I could just buy similar prepared food for cheaper and then I wouldn’t end up with the leftovers that I would eat for days and ruin the diet I am try trying very hard to keep to. No carbs basically. cut down on most everything. cup of soup for lunch and one for dinner and fruits and veggies and proteins.

The royals they are never truly alone. There is always a servant somewhere, in the room or next room, who is monitoring what is going on – how sad really. While I spend alot of time alone. I live alone.

My goals this year have been to stop talking to myself and to stop talking to my cats. First the talking to myself is just chitter chatter. and I want to quiet my mind more. The cats do not need for me to vocalize, they know what I want and am thinking without me saying it out loud, so that is just for my benefit which I dont’ really need.

I can find distractions so easily. I get bogged down in details, in patterns. I have great start up energy and enthusiasm. I am not so good at following through though I have learned so much in my adult life in how to do that. I have improved.

Guess here is alot I am thinking about “I” today.

A very windy day. God does not “make”wind or bad weather or tornadoes or bad economics because people don’t pray in schools. That would mean that God is petty and a tyrant or egotistical. That is a projection onto God.
