As the family and I finalise the details of our summer break on Iona, I am intrigued to see this report about the new way of resisting the midge, or at least, it resisting us.
Having face, fought and failed to repel 1000s of midges over the many years I have spend holidaying in Scotland, I will seek this new potion out with some haste.
It has to be said that, of all the deeply theological questions that I have struggled with over the years, the search for meaning and for wisdom into the mysterious, the one answer I have never come close to glimpsing is "what is the midge for". Hopefully this new product will render such debates even more esoteric than before
