Mr. Sherlock Holmes--you know he only says "Elemental" once in all of the stories. Once!The weather has turned of late and I’ve burrowed myself into volume 1 of the Complete Sherlock Holmes. Granted this task was started in late December. Volume 2 is waiting for me on the shelf next to many other books on my “to read” list.

I confess that I enjoyed the first and last of the stories in this book–A Study in Scarlett and the Hounds of the Baskervilles. Meeting Holmes’ brother, Mycroft, was quite fun too. Faithful readers (those of you left!) might want to check out The Sign of Four on youtube and starring my favorite Holmes, Jeremy Brett.
