Interesting. Went to print a recipe from http://www.thenewpotato.com/2012/11/12/pasta-bucatini/

The jumbled print preview is from +Chrome 48.0.2564.109 (64-bit)

whereas the correct layout is from Chrome Canary 50.0.2646.0 canary (64-bit)

Is there a button/link (that's not in Help) where I can easily access my +Google Activity log

Or should I just bookmark "https://plus.google.com/apps/activities"

Bizarre icons when you 6x click on the version on the 6P.

Think I got used to testing +Android​ M with the home screen rotation & now it won't rotate other than apps. 😥

😞 I should have put in two orders for the +Nexus Since I have the 5x & 6P on the same order. Today was the intended ship date, but that's now pushed back 1-2 weeks. 

And nothing truly functions on the Galaxy Nexus which I'm using in the mean time after my N5 died. Wish the +Android updates limited versions based on the phone.

The GN barely holds a 1/2 days charge.

Introduction

I enjoy helping people/organisations learn to help themselves. Whether that's with better communication, consolidating data for easy quick access, or simply providing tools for them to prosper faster.

I've managed projects from the initial concept to the finished implementation on three continents. I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty, whether crawling through sub flooring or digging deep into contract negotiations.

My passions are competing in sports, traveling, photography, advanced technology, and educating myself & others.

So location...this is in the seedier section of South Street, which is saying a lot. But Stephen Starr is well known for opening restaurants in downtrodden locations & revitalizing the area...see Buddakan, Jones, Continental, etc. Once you enter the air-gap, it's another world. Unlike the majority of Starr's other restaurants there's no theme/set here. It's got clean lines & contrasting colors. The walls are chalkboard, the bar back is a shaded street window, & the focus is on the open kitchen. The "Chef's Table" is more like a sushi bar, you're not interacting with the Chef at all but being aware of what's going on...even if 90% of it is facing the saucier. The menu is split into a la carte & a tasting menu. On return, I would opt for the tasting menu, which has exclusive courses from the a la carte. The leftmost two columns are light fare & the last is quite heavy. The 3 items I enjoyed the most & would order again are: Raw Scallops, Deep Fried Duck Leg, & Capers Brined Trout. I tried two others & wouldn't bother. Preferably I would have gone for a 4th appetizer versus the dessert too. Service was very attentive at the Chef's table, better than I expected with so many seats. Value, though the food was excellent...the cost was quite high for the portions, thus my belief the tasting menu at $95 with 13 courses is likely a better deal. I'm looking forward to returning.

It's quite a toss up finding a restaurant around the harbor as they all seem to be tourist traps. This being one of them. The service was molasses-like. The only worthwhile entree was a soup, the others aren't even memorable.

A great visit if you're in the area. A beautiful lived in home. One of the few lived in chateaus which is well taken care of. Like similar castles in the UK, this is a home. There are pictures of family amongst the rooms.
