Richard Armitage Legenda 85: Stuff worth reading

[Legenda offers a brief, non-inclusive index of stuff about Richard Armitage that I noticed and enjoyed since the last episode. It doesn’t usually include materials presented on the major fansites, which I love dearly, but which are linked in the sidebar. Because I always forget or just miss stuff, please add additional pieces of interest via link in the comments.]

[This is a brief edition because I was on the road for so much of the week. I was only able to read through part of my email. Please help us all out by posting your favorite stuff in the comments.]

[And, yes, I’m home, finally. I’ll post about that soon. Meanwhile, thanks for all the prayers and thoughts that accompanied me along the way. I will get to comment replies tomorrow, I hope!]

  1. I have bought orange or lemon barley water mix from the place I get my British foodstuffs from. It is good, or at lest the premix stuff is. I have gotten Robinsons. I also though I had a recipe for barley water and I do, it is to make either orange or lemon. I have never made them but I think I might have to give it a try. I am always up for something new. The recipe I got is based on one from 1685.


    • wow, interesting! What does it taste like?


      • The premix barley water taste like lemon or orange, I could not tell that I was drinking anything with barley.

        On Tuesday I got some med. barley at the store so I could try out the recipe. On the 4th I asked the 2 younger boys if they wanted homemade lemonade or to try out the barley water, they wanted the barley water. I made the lemon and we all like it better than lemonade. You can tell there is something different but it is not odd, a smoother taste to it. This is one that we will be making a lot I think. The boys thought it was better than soda pop too.


        • wow, now I am going to try it. Thanks for the rec.


          • Here is the full recipe.

            50g (2oz) pearl barley I used med
            1.25 litres (2 pints British 20 oz)
            Juice and zest of 2 lemons or oranges
            Sugar to taste

            Wash the barley and put it to boil with the water and the thinly peeled zests of the lemons or oranges. Boil (simmer) very gently for 2 hours with cover on, then strain. Just before serving, add the juice from the 2 lemons or oranges. Serve over ice with a mint leaf to decorate (I didn’t add mint).

            At the same time I got the cookbook I also got North and South.


  2. HA HA thank you for linking me.


  3. I read with interest the article on The Hobbit training regime. Now we know who the ‘insane psycho of a gym instructor’ was that Martin Freeman mentioned when speaking of RA’s stoicism!


    • I have to say that I clicked on that thinking, “this will be tedious” and it was totally the opposite. I bet Armitage was in the 25% who already knew something about fighting … 🙂 (gave me a chance to be proud of our guy)


  4. Thank you Servetus as always for Legenda, and for linking my blog and the others that reviewed STAGED – I had been avoiding reading my fellow bloggers before viewing several times myself – but now I’m ready 🙂

    Thank you for your comment also 🙂

    Hope everyone around the world who ordered will get their copy soon.


    • Thanks for review it! I saw on C19 that the UK copies had started to arrive. I’m looking forward to an interesting discussion once everyone has seen it!

      And I totally get wanting to see it first. that was part of why I paused my road trip to write the review — I didn’t want to risk waiting too long 🙂


  5. Thanks for the great links, Serv. I find I’ve seen more and more of the Armitage ones as time goes by, but you always manage to find something new – like the Hobbit exercises! How interesting! I was exhausted just looking at that circuit. Count me in with Martin Freeman – fainting long before the finish! LOL! Makes me appreciate how truly physically fit RA is.


  6. Being on your list of stuff worth reading is a real honor for me (and makes it easier for me to ignore the trolls) -Thank you for that!


  7. Thanks so much for linking Serv. (and also for putting up with my absences from blogging! Hope all is well 🙂 M
