Hope everyone had a great Christmas and are gearing up for 2009.

We've just added three new Dundee stories.

The first is a report on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Armistead Lecture in Dundee's Kinnaird Hall.

Secondly, a rather chilling story from the Courier centering on a Confederate veteran of the American Civil War.

The third story is a bizarre if not sad tale of the Dundee Elephant.

Have a good New Year and best wishes from Sons of the Mars for the coming year.
