Dear ones.
A poem for the season by Toni Kelner:

Sherlock and Dr. Watson by Toni Kelner
(To the tune of "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer")
You know Sam Spade and Kinsey
And Archie and Nero
VI Warshawski,
And old Hercule Poirot.
But do you recall
The most famous detectives of all?
Sherlock and Dr. Watson
Rode around in hansom cabs
Looking for thefts and murders
Sherlock even had a lab
All of the London coppers
Used to laugh and call them names
They never let our sleuths
Solve a crime along the Thames
Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Lestrade came to say
"Sherlock, with your keen insight
Won't you solve a case tonight?"
Then all the coppers loved them
And they shouted out with glee
Sherlock and Dr. Watson
You'll go down in mystery!

Former Bengal player McInally sold a copy of Alice in Wonderland inscribed to the real Alice, Alice Liddell by Lewis Carroll for $125.00. You can read about it here.

Also I hope some of you saw the new version of "Alice" on the Sci Fi cable network last week. As an Alice lover, I really liked it.
