I'm now the Equipment and Observing officer for the University of Birmingham Astronomical Society. I'm going to turn the society into a lean mean observin' machine. That is as soon as I get over this Balti Chicken Tikka.

P.S.

Why are you eating a Balti chicken at 11.00 in the morning?

Congrats Glom.

Don't tell me they haven't reached Newcastle yet. :(

Go to your local curry emporium, I'm sure they'll have them

They're a sort of extra-flavoured aromatic curry that you eat with nan bread.

Congrats on the new job! :) Send lots of pics, ya hear?

And watch that tikka stuff. I had a murgh tikka at an Indian restaurant here that fought back all afternoon. Good stuff, but violent.

Thou knave!

Naan bread is a flat bread, baked usually in a Tandoor or Indian clay oven. It is one of the host of flat breads from the tropics - pita, tortilla, etc., but in my humble estimation is by far the best.

That's it, I'm off to the Curry House.

Naan's great, but don't forget the paratha, especially roti bawang!

No nan bread in Canada! :( I almost emmigrated there, I'm glad it all fell through now! :D

Balti in Bengali (or Urdu or something) means "bucket"

In India this means the cheapest ingredients made in the cheapest pots. Why some English esteem balti, I'll never know #-o

Perhaps its been anglicised, a bit like chop suey, the Chinese dish which is really an American dish.

Naan bread? The biggest ones you can get would cover your table..a bit like American steaks.

But.. #-o seems to me we're off topic a bit..just thinking about our fat stomachs.

Glom, tell us more about what's occurring.

Off topic, but Chop Suey was always one that I got a chuckle over. All it really amounts to is leftovers. Give me a good roasted duck and black bean sauce any day of the week.

I'm surprised. Every Indian restaurant I've ever been in had Nan, and I got to believe that Toronto has at least one Indian restaurant. Heck, Cleveland has 3 or 4, and we're not exactly the food capital of North America. :wink:

Thanks everyone.

I have seen the cupboards. They're a bit of a mess and I need to sort them out, but first we're waiting for our new 10 inch telescope which should arrive by next week. I will aim to keep a proper logbook of all AstroSoc observing events and be make dedicated targets to observe.

At the moment, we're still trying to get things sorted out. I'm still not quite sure who else is on the committee.
