      Another object lesson for me in how different personal tastes can be, Regina. Sorry Arthur Conan Doyle and his creation are not to your liking. Will miss seeing you at the discussion.

      Hi Conway. Nice to hear from you. I found a substitute read this month with Agnes Grey by Ann Bronte. ... a group from Vista. I will catch up with all of you in June. Enjoy Sherlock.

    Louis, many thanks for making us aware of that 86-year-old kine of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle talking about his most famous creation, Sherlock Holmes, and his interest in spiritualism, which was shared by another scientifically trained luminary of the time, Sir William Crookes, the fatheor of the cathode ray tube that was the basis og television sets until supplanted by modern LCD, LED, and plasma technology.
