Indian cuisine and wind-up DAB

Just a brief entry (really this time!) since I'm half-way through that four-day shift...

Last week, I went for lunch with my Dad - I'd intended to take him to a 'leisure complex' type Indian Restaurant (you know the sort... high ceiling, modern design and fairly standard food) in what we affectionately term "the Monstrosity". As I was on my way to meet up with him, I passed a little pub-style restaurant, with blackboards outside where one of the staff was cleaning the windows.
The 'critical reviews' on the boards lauded the food, and as I was reading, the window-cleaning man asked me whether he could help. I mentioned that I was meeting my Dad for lunch, and that I was considering going to Mumbai up the road, and asked him why I should visit his restaurant instead. He said "Come on in, and if you don't like it, you don't have to pay." Well, I can say that Papa J's Indian Tapas Restaurant certainly lived up to expectations and because it's real Indian food, and they have a very reasonable (£4.99 per head) lunchtime menu, and the proprietor is friendly and helpful (certainly to an Indian cuisine novice like me!), I'll definitely be going back. If I can find someone else who likes Indian food!

Woo! New toy! Bring together the wonders of Digital Radio with the ecology of clockwork - and you get this wonderful device: the Freeplay Devo. Want one!

Two more days to go until my next day off... not that I'm complaining!

Ooh.. I've just received an email:
South China Morning Post podcasts has played your song [monster gratis] Summer In Britain. Find out more about this PodShow at music.podshow.com/music...
... OK, so I've not heard it on any of the podcasts I've downloaded today, but it's nice to have a mention!
