Welcome to Marlinspike Hall, ancestral home of the Haddock Clan. A couple of editorial notes: Navigation is on the right. As is an *EXPLANATION* of the fictional basis of this blog. HINT: Read the column on the right labelled **ABOUT::THIS::BLOG**! Look up recent posts, or posts by category or date of posting. Text that is underlined & shaded light blue is a clickable link to relevant information. Enjoy your stay! There are some slippers over there somewhere.
