Over the Christmas period, as chance would have it, I came into possession of a collection of Sherlock Holmes quotations appropriate to each day of the year. What better, than to share them on a daily basis with my chums throughout the new year on Facebook, commencing on New Year’s Day.

I will post occasional of the choicer selections in this journal, but you can enjoy them daily should you choose to follow my Facebook account which you can locate at https://www.facebook.com/richard.gregson

Here’s a sample to whet your appetite:

“I know my dear Watson that you share my taste for all that is bizarre and outside the conventions and humdrum route of everyday life”
“The Readheaded League” (1891)
