A few of our “Mutton Eaters” will be involved in the first murder mystery weekend at the B&B on Second Street. For all the details, with more to come visit http://lizziebordenmysteryweekend.com/
In 1994 I was lucky to finally realize a life long wish to visit London. Just around the corner from the famous Madame Tussaud’s wax museum is 221 Baker Street, which downstairs houses Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Room and upstairs, a faithful representation of the apartment of the fictional Holmes. Thousands of letters pour in yearly to Sherlock, with addresses which span the globe, all asking for advice.
It is great fun to visit here, and I see their website has become quite sophisticated, with a tour of the premises, gift shop, paid quarterly magazine, and much more. I know you will enjoy surfing the many nooks and crannies of this site, maybe shopping at the online store, watching video clips and listening to the great Jeremy Brett series audio music files. Here is a free quizz you might try out if you are a Sherlockian. You will win a 10 dollar coupon to spend in the giftshop or online store even if you miss a few! They also send you a free complimentary copy of the next issue of The Baker Street Times, which is a treasure of information about the Life and Times of Sherlock Holmes in the late Victorian period. So, enjoy!

It would seem that we have some Partners in Crime, to be found at the Baker Street Blog maintained by Scott Monty (a BSI member) which is filled with suggestions for good reads, links, articles, and Sherlockiana. You may wish to visit and read some of their most excellent postings about the game afoot in other quarters. There is apparently never a shortage of crime. http://www.bakerstreetblog.com/
