Aww. This is of no huge consequence, but still gives me a pang. That is a truly great scene from a truly great movie.

Yes, definitely worth the read. I'm feeling quite good about this, after some initial misgivings.
 
"Mike Pence is the clanking mechanical heart of the Party of No... Kaine is the anti-Pence." You'll like Kaine after reading this. :)

I'll say one thing - if elections were won on stagecraft alone, this would be over already. The DNC is inspiring - every single speech, performance and presentation I've seen has been superbly well done.

Unfortunately, I don't think it'll do much. Fear wins, and the orange tiny-handed douche canoo will have plenty of supporters turning up on election day. They don't care about facts, or hifalutin ideals, just dem terrorists/forriners/crooked politicians. They're misguided idiots, but they are, unfortunately, allowed to vote. And they'll do so in great numbers, and with greater conviction. :/

So this is "51st & Green" - finally an airside business lounge in the transatlantic section of Dublin airport. It's after the CBP area, right down at the far end of the U.S. departures terminal (close to gate 406; maybe a four-minute walk).

It's nice - at the moment very un-crowded (but I'm on EI145, which is one of the last flights of the day). There is plenty of comfortable seating with a view of the runway as well as some desk style seating. Good quality snacks (self-service) as well as a paid hot menu, and a barista. No bar though. (The barista has some alcoholic additives.)

Definitely better than either the DAA or Aer Lingus lounges, and being airside from CBP is a big advantage.

Very pleasant restaurant in Cupertino; extremely friendly and engaging staff with a lot of hands-on customer service from the owner. The food was delicious - roti with a fresh curry dip (delicious), one of the best chicken satay appetizers I've ever had, and a really spicy, flavoursome curry entree. Numerous flavors of shaved ice desserts; try the mango especially!
