The Sixth Grade Band
Last Thursday, Guy Emanuele Pavilion hosted the Alvarado Middle School Extravaganza. Truthfully, the theme of the night was “Talent You Cannot Bottle!” The night was full of talent from various extra-curricular organizations, groups, and clubs. There was band, choir, guard, and even cultural dance groups.

Portrait of David Hume
by Allan Ramsay , 1766
Oil on canvas
Scottish National Portrait Gallery
David Hume was born at Edinburgh on April 26, 1711 the younger son in a good but not wealthy family. His father, "who passed for a man of parts," died when Hume was still a child, and he was brought up by his mother at the family estate of Ninewells, near Berwick. About 1723 he entered the University of Edinburgh, and, according to his Autobiography, "passed through the ordinary course of education with success." His letters show that when he returned to Ninewells about three years later he had acquired a fair knowledge of Latin, slight acquaintance with Greek, and a literary taste inclining to "books of reasoning and philosophy, and to poetry and the polite authors." His studious disposition led his family to believe that law was the proper profession for him, but he "found an insurmountable aversion to everything but the pursuits of philosophy and general learning; and while they fancied I was poring upon Voet and Vinnius, Cicero and Virgil were the authors which I was secretly devouring."
Read An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding by David Hume,
one of 11 of his works available free from Project Gutenberg.
