East Midlands Christmas breakfast for Richard Armitage?

Interesting article in the Guardian about how best to eat pork pie. I learned a lot, including what a “picky tea” is. Can’t say I’d necessarily want that for breakfast, though. Here‘s some more information on the context of Armitage’s pork pie love, including a link to the original interview in which he confesses his pork pie love.

  1. Our classic car club had its Christmas buffet on Thursday the pork pies disappeared very quickly it’s a favourite. I love that interview the hair isn’t the best but Chop is definitely in the room.


    • It’s the kind of thing my father would really enjoy trying, I suspect.

      I loved that interview, too, esp the joking about playing the cello.


  2. I read an article not to long ago that was about one of the professional basketball venues serving meat pies and the Australians were chastising us for eating them wrong. I often get meat pies at the Scottish/Irish festivals during the summer here and I love them, but I’ve been eating them with a knife & fork (gasp!). I now have permission to eat them with my hands 😀

    as for the Pork Pie, I’m not so sure about that. the jelly-like substance that oozes out when you bite into it, and eating it cold for breakfast. I would have to break the rules and eat it hot, later in the day. I will try to eat it with my hands, just don’t tell my father 😉


    • That knife / fork thing …. I think my hair is turning grey enough now that servers are putting me in the “how older people eat” category. They always give me a knife and fork for my brownie at Starbucks, and at bars, they’ve started to bring me a glass if I order a bottled beer.

  3. Une réserve. Le site de vente de médicaments en ligne “agorapharmacy” me semble très particulier. En tant que pharmacien diplômée, je préfère la publicité de sites accolés à de vraies officines de pharmacie. Désolée!


    • I don’t know what you’re talking about, I’m afraid. If you’re referring to an ad on another page, I have no control over that.


      • Il s’agit d’une personne qui a cliqué sur like , l’étoile bleue.
        Je ne vois pas pourquoi la personne se présente cachée derrière “agorapharmacy” si ce n’est pour faire de la publicité, de la vente de médicaments en ligne et de plus en utilisant comme support votre site.
        Les règles de vente de certains des médicaments (proposés sur ce site) sont draconiennes en France. Aucune présentation ou publicité, à destination du public, n’est autorisée pour certains des médicaments montrés sur ce site. Surtout qu’un médecin doit absolument les prescrire sur ordonnance, après une vraie consultation du patient, pour qu’enfin une éventuelle délivrance puisse se faire sous contrôle d’un pharmacien.
        Si cela est permis aux USA, j’en suis triste et vous prie d’accepter mes excuses.


        • I get a message when someone likes the page, but I can’t block them. The only control I have over who “likes” a post would be to turn it off. It’s relatively obvious from the message I get who is a fan and who is just using the software to advertise something or other (something else I can’t control, as I use a free blogging platform, which is not only cheaper but protects from a number of other problems relating to running my own website).

          So anyway — I didn’t read it. But it’s true that many drugs are widely prescribed in the U.S., including some that are not useful, some that might not be helpful, and some that require a physician’s prescription. It’s been that way since the mid-1980s.


  4. Damn you Peter Jackson for not letting him sing more! Pork pies, Red Leicester, fish & chips, got it. You never know when such information could come in handy. 😂. Didn’t he also say in an interview that his mother was very big on healthy eating? Healthy for England in the 70’s & 80’s, or contemporary healthy. I hope the former, it’s better for the myth.
