Howdy folks, 

Are we all keeping well? 

The outside world has started to get a little busier again, certainly over here in England, but we are still taking things one day at a time. The good news is that things do seem to be moving back toward some kind of normality.

Fingers crossed.

And as we move to the next stage of the current situation, it’s time to bring ‘Something to read when you’re bored’ to an end. But before I do, how about one last burst of stories to keep you entertained/occupied/distracted from the outside world?

Sound good? Great! Let’s start with some news.


Yesterday it was announced that Justice League: The Snyder Cut is finally getting a release. The film – an alternate take on 2017’s Justice League – will be available to stream in 2021 via HBO Max.
