The family and I have been out. . .

 . . . to spend a little time in the snow this week. I look forward to getting back in the swing here tomorrow.

Conan Doyle
Lovers of Swiss ski holidays have the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to thank. He had fallen in love with the sport in Norway and thought Switzerland offered the perfect terrain. He imported some skis and encouraged two Swiss brothers to join him. They practised at night to avoid being teased by the locals. Conan Doyle later wrote: “I am convinced that the time will come when hundreds of English men will come to Switzerland for the skiing season.”

And if that isn't enough. . . .
