Calista says "This is the Yes day ever!!!".

I propose we move St. Patrick's Day to May 22nd and call in "TáLá" or possibly "GráLá".

Eurovision. As usual, the songs are mostly terrible, but the set is incredible. I want a synchronised video floor.

Very disappointed for the UK. I thought the 1920's throwback was very good. Don't remember Russia's song at all!

That's not exactly true, +John Looney​. France had a referendum about that constitution and rejected it. I can't remember if other countries rejected it too (but yeah, the prospect looked rather bad)

Hold your ground, hold your ground!

Sons and daughters of Galway, of Dublin, my brothers and sisters! I saw in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the generosity of Ireland fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day! An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of kindness comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day, we win! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you rejoice, People of the West!

This is a truly awesome thing. Very pleased and hope that it will set future precedence for other countries seeking the same.

Anyone who's had DON'T REDEFINE MARRIAGE yelled at them over the past few weeks would do well to read this.

Redefine away.
Legal changes over the years profoundly altered the state of marriage for the better

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!

Unfortunately it was overcast and raining when I was here, which is a pity as I think that the view is one of Doyle's main attractions. Still; the food was excellent and the service efficient, friendly and polite.
