Well you may have seen on the BBC that I have added to my collection. A modest donation along with the Scottish Government and the National Galleries in London has secured the Duke's Titian "Diana and Actaeon". Plans are now afoot for the painting to alternate between the galleries in London and Edinburgh and home. Originally the old duffer had tried to drive a hard bargain and set a cut-off day of 31st December. After seeing a few of the photos taken during our New Year's Eve party I convinced him to be a little more flexible (as certainly the photos implied he could be). A good deal all round methinks.
