Since I am flying today (Thursday), I went out for a late lunch Wednesday at my nearby excellent Indian Restaurant – it’s a few blocks away and I seem to go there for a meal the evening before most major trips.

Today, June 23, 2012, marks the 100th birthday of Alan Turing, a man whose efforts helped break Nazi encryptions, and, consequently, end the war. He was even awarded an OBE for this.
