The Weird and Crazy Sherlockian Fact of the Month

These people were surely a bit lucky though - to have the last name 'Holmes.' Then, all the parents had to do was name their kid 'Sherlock'!

According to my research on the Internet, there are at least 43 people in the world who are alive right now - who have been named exactly 'Sherlock Holmes.'

It would be interesting to have that name, wouldn't it?

It's a fun read (I hope!)

Time now for...

This Month's Special Sherlockian Sizzler...

Hope you enjoy the 'puzzles' there.

There's a 'quiz' page at as well. It's got trivia rather than 'riddles' though. Here it is:

Well, bye for now!

See you next month. :-)
