Saint of the day: St Nicholas von Fl∫e, the patron saint of Switzerland, was a prosperous farmer who took early retirement in his fifties to become a hermit in the mountains. On the way to his new life he was stricken with a terrible stomach ache, which left him with no need for food. Which is useful if you live up a mountain.
