Sheila Chandra explores the ties between Celtic and Indian music, in one of a series of tracks where she looked at the migration path of the Celts and its origins in the Caucasus Mountains in what is now northern India.

I have had her 'Donalogue' in my head for about fifteen years!

And to this day, we still won't even talk about the issue. All we do is scream at each other while our children die.

Okay, now how do I get Kubuntu back to KDE from Gnome? Backing out Ubuntu-desktop with apt-get purge didn't do it, and I'm having to restart lightdm to get a login screen.

Found the problem. Needed to switch from lightdm back to sddm.

Departing for Delhi India from a small regional airport. It only has 6 gates, but I only need 1 to access the rest of the planet.

Haven't been before. Will see some of Bengaluru, as I will have a weekend there.

This is my daughter and her girlfriend. I'm already sending everything I can, and they won't move down here to Virginia - can you blame them?

Just don't tell them who sent it. They might send it back.

I have to say, I am impressed with the Karnataka Enlightened. This is a 7 layer BAF, with all of Bengaluru shown for scale. I look forward to the opportunity to maybe meet the agents who contributed to this.

Today's music posting, which seems to tie in to current events somehow -  but then Tony Carey usually does.

My farm is now providing eggs to the local secular food pantry. Feels good to be giving back to the community.

Andres at the front desk was the only employee actually working. He ran his butt off taking care of us. My wife has fibromyalgia and needs hydrotherapy after long car rides. The pool area opens at 7 according to the sign. At 8:30, it was still locked, and when Andres unlocked it, the hot tub was shut off and stone cold. No hydrotherapy for you. The engineer (didn't get his name) and the other guy whose jacket covered his badge gave us non apologetic apologies. The breakfast was terrible, with little that someone allergic to pork could eat other than carbs. Won't stay here again.

Amazing chicken shawarma sandwich. They sprinkle feta in the olive oil that comes with the appetizer bread.

They do an excellent grilled falafel sandwich, but the best offering is the set-menu breakfast. Do not go by yourself. Take a small group. There's lebneh, hummus, foul, yogurt with honey, sour cream with za'atar and olive oil, black and green olives, scrambled eggs with tomatoes and onions, and they bring out huge rounds of fresh-baked bread until you surrender. I went there with a group of six. Two more of our friends showed up after we had been served. We left with food still on the table, unable to finish it all. Excellent service, friendly staff, and I'm told they set up a good hookah.

Very geek-friendly, with a separate gaming room fitted out with a whiteboard and comfortable chairs, diverse genre decor, and a staff that play the games, watch the movies, and read the books. Brilliant menu, although a bit pricey for the average gamer.

Excellent buffet, with Pakistani-influenced dishes that I don't usually see at an Indian restaurant. Good service, very polite staff. I've been here multiple times and never had a bad experience.

Dunno about their hookahs, but they do an awe inspiring breakfast on Saturday mornings. Bring friends and be prepared to spend serious time with serious amounts of amazing food.
