    What's in a Name?

    What's in a Name?

    We often get asked why we are named 'Watson's Cabinet'. It's a great question, even the yellow pages thought we were a cabinet store at first, but that's taking a very literal meaning to our name.

    So where did we come up with it? First, take a look at our logo, a cat with a pipe. Any ideas yet?

    Our cat is the  model for our logo, (he's also named Watson), but it is also a reverence to the great literary Dr. Watson and Sherlock Holmes, who were fascinated with solving the mysteries of life and following clues to the logical explanation. It's a reminder to us that it's important to listen to those clues that our body tells us and to continue to be amazed (and to learn) about the mysteries of our biology!
