The Scottish Association of Young Farmers is turning 75 years old and to celebrate, hundreds of members past and present are in Glasgow.
The "selfie" has turned into a social media phenomenon. Here is a look at some celebrity fans.
Hundreds of ghostly sightings have been reported on the A75 in Dumfries and Galloway
A soldier who had suffered a leg injury during a training exercise in the Galloway Hills has been rescued.
The incident happened in a remote area on the border between South Ayrshire and Galloway some time before 2pm on Saturday. Members of the Galloway Hills Mountain Rescue Team attended and the soldier was evacuated to a forest track near Tukskeen Bothy, where he was treated by a military medic.
Dumfries and Galloway MP Russell Brown went door to door in Lochside this morning as he continues to engage the public about Labour's involvement with the Better Together campaign.

'We can't sit back and allow what looks like a very good lead in current polls to just say well we are home and dry and everything will be fine. We need to hear what people are saying, we need to listen to the concerns they have and try and explain our interpretations of facts and figures.'
The canvassing comes ahead of the publication of the Independence White Paper on Tuesday by the SNP.
Four people have been taken to hospital after a crash on the A74 (M)
The incident took place at 5:50am between junctions 20 and 21.
The casualties were said to have been suffering from the effects of inhaling chemicals and taken to Dumfries Royal Infirmary for treatment.
Firefighters in Dumfries and Galloway helped the casualties and cleared the motorway after two HGVs collided this morning.
Scottish Fire and Rescue Service liaised with the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency to ensure the chemicals were safely managed and removed.
– Incident commander, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service
“The crews were quick to respond to this challenging incident and acted swiftly to contain the spillage. Through the effective partnership between firefighters, police officers, ambulance personnel and SEPA, the situation was resolved to ensure the continued safety of oncoming drivers.”
Two lanes are closed northbound on the A74 (M) between junctions 21 and 20, due to a crash involving two lorries.
One of the lorries struck the central reservation, and it is expected that the two lanes will be closed for some time.
Traffic heading towards Lockerbie is also being affected.
Arts in Dumfries and Galloway play a major part in the economy of the region - and now the artists themselves will be able to take greater control over their future.
Fresh Start for the Arts aims to bring a new approach to the industry, and celebrate the region on a national stage.

– Councillor Colin Smyth, Chair of housing, planning and environment committee, Dumfries and Galloway Council
"It's a good leisure facility, people can stroll along here on a Sunday, and hopefully we'll begin to see the marina itself develop and more boats coming into the area.
"That brings people into the community, that might have not visited Stranraer and it actually allows them to bring in investment to spend in local shops and cafes."
– Keith Brown, Transport Minister for Scotland
"If it makes people take the choice to go into Stranraer, rather than take some other mode of transport away from the ferry port, that's got to be attractive.
"It was a difficulty in the past, if we make it as easy and attractive as possible then people will want to go into Stranraer.
"They'll want to go for the railway station, and hopefully to spend some time and money in Stranraer as well."

Dumfries and Galloway MP Russell Brown has welcomed the official opening of Stranraer's West Pier.
The refurbished Pier has been opened following a £650,000 investment by Dumfries and Galloway Council.
"Dumfries and Galloway council are to be congratulated on the work to bring this historic pier back into public use.
"There has been a lot of debate locally about what the projects in Stranraer the council should and shouldn't spend its limited resources on, but I believe the West Pier refurbishment has widespread community support.
"However, the real challenge now is the regeneration of the East Pier and the wider Waterfront.
– Russell Brown MP, Dumfries and Galloway, Labour
"The council simply can't do that on its own. Scottish Government Ministers need to do more than simply turn up for a photocall on the Waterfront."
