Two Ravens Cabernet Sauvignon Touriga Nacional


Mass spectrometrists:
They’re creepy and they’re kooky.
Well, mostly creepy.

Name: Two Ravens Cabernet Sauvignon Touriga Nacional
Type: red wine
Menu: Chicken covered in a pesto of turmeric, garlic, and cilantro, roasted sweet potatoes, and a Thai style slaw.
Venue: house

Review/notes: An impulse buy because it was on deep discount, this held up well against the heavily spiced and sweet and sour dishes.

A new mass spectrometer delivered to Physical and Theoretical Chemistry was flown into place via a crane, today.  But the real Oxford Mass Spectrometry news has to be the roll out of @michaeltmarty ‘s hash tag ( #UniDec ) for some spectral deconvolution software — help make this trend by Tweeting rude-to-obscene photos (like this or this or even the pic below) with the hashtag #UniDec (go on, you know you want to). [UPDATE 12 December 2014: #UniDec got me blocked.]

After the stress of this delivery, I did a short run around the University Parks:
