Indjah

Brahma

Well after much packing and unpacking i finally had my bags together.  Had my passport, visa, shots. I had liquids and gels in TSA compliant amounts.  Took off for the airport well in advance of my take-off time. Very nice of my wife to not only drive me to the airport but to walk me to the security line as well. Leaving is bad but if there is a good side its that it makes me appreciate Mrs. Mice.

The flight to Frankfurt was long but on the upside we had those on demand in seat entertainment systems. I watched all of Aliens v Cowboys which was tolerable and most of Anonymous which was pretty cool. I slept some but I really was not keeping track of what time it was or what time it was in Frankfurt or what. I didn’t even have time to go to the restroom before I had to board my flight to Bengaluru. Though fewer hours in the air the second leg of the flight seemed much longer. Was it because there was no on -demand movies? Was it because I had less space to stretch my legs? I tried and succeeded in sleeping at least part of the time. We landed in Bangalore at 2am local time. Wow was still kinda warm and very muggy. Was very much like Florida weather. Our driver met us at the airport with a printed sign with our names. One hour drive and we were at our hotel.

It was clear when we arrived that this was a nice hotel. First thing when arriving an employee greets me with a warm Namaste. Ha ha so awesome. I feel very welcome. I must be in the right place.

Stromboli

Stromboli
i mixed yeast, some corn oil, sugar and water. i then added like a couple cups of flour slowly and let it rise for like an hour and a half.

Stromboli
fried up some sweet italiain sausage (minus the casings), peperoni, salami, zucch, olives, mushrooms, some Italian seasonings in a pan. i did not use any butter nor oil.

Stromboli
i sliced the cheese. this failed, i recommend grating your cheese.

Stromboli
i rolled up the filling in the dough. the speckled one was a failed attempt because i rolled the dough too thin. its not a crepe. let the dough rise again and glazed with egg water. i baked at 425 for like 30 minutes or maybe less.

Stromboli
slice

Stromboli
and serve.

Stromboli
yum.

flying meditation

skydive

One of the most insane and most crazy things i have ever done or am likely to do ever.

My good friend Cindy turned 40 and invited me along. Actually she invited mrs. mice who would not have any part of this. It was pretty nerve wracking esp going up in the plane. I was meditating to try and keep cool. I doubt the Buddha ever did freefall from 14,000. Though I’m sure if he had he would have enjoyed it. Very grateful and humbled that I could do this. Going to have to think about it for a while to see if i would ever do it again. It was scary but also super fun. All pictures and video were taken by and property of Skydive Surfcity

Was a great way to celebrate turning 40. Happy B-day Cindy!

Don’t Give Me That Look

Flamingo

I like all three of these versions I post here for you. Really, I like every version of this song i have ever heard. It’s like a sipping on an Island Mai Tai at Forbidden Island. Which by the way I was able to do with my lovely wife this last weekend. Dinner at King of Thai restaurant. Really doesn’t get much better than this for this little cowboy.

The original version or at least the song performed by its co-creator Duke Ellington. Very solid.

The Martin Denny version. So much fun.

The first version I ever heard for the song by Wynton. Perfect.
