    How have I lived without reading your blog all this time?? Being a Sherlock Holmes manic fan, I thought I had been to every single webpage on the internet relating SH (kinda impossible yes, but hey, I’ve been to a hell of a lot webpages). I LOVE your blog, I love the layout, the Search bar and the posts themselves. I would gladly marry you, but I’m not pretty sure you like younger women, Doctor.

    Lovely to read you, have a nice day!

      My dear lady, thank you for your kind comments. The layout of the blog is entirely due to the extensive research and design flair of the architect over at Line In Web Design (see the link at the bottom of the screen). There’s a Case Study about how it was built at http://line-in.co.uk/john-watson/

      On the matrimonial question and “in an experience of women which extends over many nations and three separate continents” [SIGN] I and the present Mrs Watson are quite happy, thank you. But please do not be offended – if anything changes, I’ll let you know!
