Moving On
Even at my best I don’t like change very much. Be that as it may, I’ve got a big one around the corner. I’m preparing to move from Kansas City to Dallas, my first out-of-state move in eight years. A lot can happen in eight years. In that time I’ve met my wife and had two kids. I’ve transitioned from a graduate student to an office worker and dad, and now back to a grad student again.

Indeed the Tantive is so enormous that I actually felt embarassed getting it out and putting it on the table, as though I were some rich kid with a box of ridiculously overpriced toys flaunting it in front of his friends. ...
 
 
Murder by Decree - Tow Jockey Five Second Review
Aside from those in Shakespeare's plays, few fictional characters have been envisaged with so many styles, settings and interpretations as has Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. From an eccentric isolated from humanity by his intellect to full blown action hero to everything in-between. The one thing, though, that always seems to carry through is is his almost super human ability to think, to pick out details, and to draw accurate conclusions there from.
