Well, I haven't been in an abyss or anything like that; basically, I've just had a tremendously busy, but fulfilling, year. Meanwhile, the Baker Street Babble blog has suffered while I've been otherwise occupied. But now I'm back! I shan't be able to post every day, but I'm going to try to post at least every week. When I started this blog, I was really on a roll, and I'm quite pleased, looking back at my earlier posts, at the range of Sherlockian topics I managed to cover.

I'm a stay-at-home dad, and Director of Music Ministries at a United Methodist Church in Mt. Juliet, TN. And a longtime fan of Sherlock Holmes.
