Richard - Just a couple of days from turning 82,and there just one thing that bothers me about Peter. (5 years ago)
barry - Imagine Columbo vs Sherlock. That would be something. Who would solve the most cases? I haven`t got a clue. (I know, That was bad of me.). I would root for Columbo. I would love for Columbo to show up Sherlock with the check mate evidence. He could say, "Uh excuse me Sherlock, were you looking for this to solve the piece of the puzzle?" "How did you find that Lt. Columbo?" "Elementary my dear Sherlock!" Yeah! I can see it! (6 years ago)
