This post contains instructions on how to avoid spilling juice from cartons or Tetra Paks®, with a rectangular cross-section, while opening or lifting them. It’s quite natural to grip cartons by the easiest method (the broad sides) while opening them, or lifting them when they’re still full, causing the contents to pour or squirt out inadvertently. Cartons with a square cross section are indifferent to the sides that are gripped when lifting or pouring.
You go to the refrigerator and take out a new cool carton of juice. You hold it firmly and take off the seal and juice spurts out at you and runs down the side of the carton, or you pick it up after removing the seal and juice pours out as you grip it. Before you’ve got it in a glass you’re in a mess. This is usually caused by the way you grip the carton. Continue reading “Spilling Juice From Cartons or ‘Tetra Paks®’”
“It’s a bit nippy, a bit dull and there have been a few showers.” – Helpful Colin, May 2012
In Durham there are lots of narrow hilly streets and the river has a big hairpin bend in it so you can walk over one bridge and after a short distance without doubling back walk over the same river again. The Market Place is pedestrianized and on quite a steep slope, but it’s all very clean with pedestrianized streets leading off it. Even the Market Hall on one side of it has a severely sloping floor inside it and a two storey staircase to get up to it on one side. Here, in the featured image, is a nice view of the River Wear taken from Elvet Bridge. I presume the rowers are sporting university types.
We finished the day with dinner atFinbarr’s Restaurant, No.4 on Trip Advisor’s Durham Restaurants (at the time of writing), and deservedly so. It has a very nice ambiance and was well attended on Friday night. It also has a very nice bar area. NOTE: It can be difficult to find. Walk to the end of Waddington Street furthest from the town where there is an Arriva bus depot. To the right of it is a hotel through an archway. Finbarr’s Restaurant is around the back of the hotel off the car park and cannot be seen from the street. There is a sign for the restaurant on the left as you enter from the street by the bus depot.
Footnote: Sadly it slipped down to No.10 on Trip Advisor’s Durham Restaurants by 24/12/2014.
