The statue of David Hume (1711-1776), dressed as an ancient Greek philosopher, was installed on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh in 1996. This much respected man was a keen philosopher and historian, I looking for practical solutions and solidly against all religion and superstition. It is therefore ironic that the public deem his large toe to be worth a fondle for good luck, a tradition started, apparently, by philosophy students who hoped Hume could help them through their exams.

Thanks to everyone who brought us some shelter last week; the variety was huge. Special thanks to Ken for a solid shelter that made me think it would star in a tv series; to Su for a great example of shelter renovation; and to Sandy for a lesson to all DIY fans – this is the way it should be done.
