The variety of portrayals of Sherlock Holmes is slightly less interesting to me than the passionate responses they provoke among Holmesians. The character is written just colorfully enough that readers develop a very precise picture of him in their heads -- but it's a very different picture from person to person.
 
Sherlock Holmes is one of the greatest detectives of all time. He's appeared in television shows, movies, short stories, and novels. Get out your magnifying glass and look at the Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes in Pictures. http://on.nypl.org/1kEslGC

Lonerider's Brew it Forward 2013 winner, Black Eye schwartzbier. Delicious - crispy taste, tiny bit sweet, nice chocolatey smell. Hello, weekend.

Back at Trophy after another unfortunately long absence. Richie recommended the Loner, a super-tart sour, and it's a good 'un - flavorful and easy.

I've been off my special NC beers while I try to branch out into European brews, but I busted through the annoying wax cap tonight to celebrate my last snow day with Triple C's Up All Night. It's not the very best coffee-BBL I've had but it's pretty good - nice balance of flavors, not so much coffee that I'll be having nightmares.

Bottle Revolution in Raleigh, I think. I don't know if they still have it - I bought it at least a month ago.

I was on a hop quest tonight, and the one with only one type of hop was the one I liked best. Oakham Ale Citra. Very fresh and light with just enough hop bite to get your attention.

Good brewery, Citra is probably one of the best UK pales under 5%.

I'm damned if I can figure out why all these real estate companies and people have started following me. I'm not in the market. I'm not in the business. I don't have any money even if I wanted a house in the mountains.

Even at two years old, a distinctive dresser. (Who hated her hair - yes, that's a shower cap.)   #throwbackthursday

Actually, it was made of cloth. Ladies used them to cover their hair when it was up in curlers back in the day of curling your own hair and no home hair driers.

Brasserie Dupont's Foret organic saison. Really tasty and a good match for coq au vin.
