([3rd ||Sep||2013] new insert/clue ): .....like the fact that from now on, any correctly identified clue mentioned in a comment by a deviant on this page will be indicated by the addition of one word, then two then three, in correct order L-R, as more clues are solved from the following phrase, (appropriate.. don't you think?....):
"... elementary, my dear friend..." said Sherlock Holmes to Doctor Watson..."
to the appropriate clue above........thus the set of clues will appear weirder and more enigmatic-looking as clue-solving progresses... </b>
