But I did pop in to my local butcher’s today, which is run by the local pork farm, and asked about the specific cut of meat that the pulled pork recipe I have asks for. In the States, it seems to be called a “Boston Butt”, but I described it to my butcher as a “bone-in blade shoulder of pork, 4-5lb approx.”

I hadn’t gotten around to it until today, and I was sealing them up in an envelope when, with impeccable timing, a big chunk of varnish fell off the arms of my “good” pair of glasses – the varifocals.
“The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume,”
I recently received an email which was sent “to notify you that we have temporanly (sic) prevented access to your account”. Nothing new about that. Except the “ISP” which was allegedly suspending me (and requiring my signing on to reactivate my account) was none other than filklore.co.uk.
… and then realise I forgot to add tags.
The sunglasses look ok initially – I love the retro mock-tortoiseshell frames, but something niggles me, so I send an email to them querying it.
So it pained me greatly when I first went to see the film Daredevil at the cinema, in 2003. Staring Ben Affleck, it was an incoherent mess, a string of bad action sequences without any real story to link them. It was a horrible movie, and what really annoyed me about it was that having made it, no-one else was going to make Daredevil the movie properly.
I really do like it.
In addition, at several points the drama cut between acted scenes with Paul Giamatti, and archive footage of the real Harvey on the Letterman show. This sounds like it would be a mess, but it wasn’t – it was extremely well edited, and not confusing at all. What I particularly liked was the attention to detail – when Paul Giamatti is led onstage to be interviewed, he is wearing exactly the same clothes as we then see worn by the real Harvey Pikar when we cut to archive footage on the Green Room TV monitor. Simple, but very effective.
The Greeniversity has already done a lot of the hard work in finding a wide range of venues throughout the Peterborough area, all which are offered to registered Greeniversity teachers for free, subject to availability.
Benedict Cumberbatch, who memorably played a young Stephen Hawking a few years back, is brilliant in the lead part, while Martin Freeman managed to bring John Watson to life. Tremendous fun from the outset, and strangely true to the spirit of the original, I am looking forward to future episodes.
