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
The word 'selfie' has been named as the word of 2013 according to Oxford Dictionaries.
The word is described as "a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website."
We would like to see the best selfies from Dumfries and Galloway, Cumbria and the Scottish Borders.
To get you started, ITV Border's Lori Carnochan, Paul Dobson and Hannah McNulty have taken their own selfie.

Scottish Transport Minister Keith Brown will be in Stranraer later to launch an electric bus service linking the ferry terminal in Cairnryan with the town's railway station.
The town's west Pier will also be officially reopened.
A man from Dumfries says the heat generated by his Christmas lights is cheaper than central heating - and is saving him money on his fuel bills.
It is not recommended by the fire service, which says overloading your plug sockets with lights could be a fire hazard.
However, Darrel Piper will not be convinced. He loves his decorations so much he has been putting them up since September.
Hannah McNulty reports.
The GUARD Archaeology team unearthed an additional two empty cists at the farm in Stranraer.
The cists, which are ancient graves, indicated to the team that there was a possible attempt by the family of the young child to set aside graves near to the body.
The team also highlighted that stress indicators on the skeletal remains may have indicated a wider problem for the community at that time, perhaps a food shortage or onset of disease.
The report states that this implies that the community understood and planned an individual's burial practice well in advance of that person's death.
A man from Dumfries is using thousands of Christmas lights to heat his home.
Darrel Piper claims it is cheaper for him to use the lights for heat rather than paying for gas.
The 40-year-old says that he puts £30 in the electricity meter every fortnight and £5 in the gas meter to use for cooking.
He says that if he didn't have the lights it would cost £60 a fortnight for the gas and electricity.
Darrel buys most of his decorations second hand and some are decades old.
He says that he never goes out and leaves the lights on.
Other homeowners are being advised not to follow in his footsteps.
Archaeological investigations carried out by a GUARD Archaeology team found that the child was malnourished at the time of death.
Warren Bailie and his team found that the skeletal remains belonged to a child aged between nine and twelve years old.
Tests carried out on the remains showed that the child suffered from malnutrition, indicated by dental enamel hypoplasia (DEH) and cribra orbitalia, both childhood stress indicators.
A radiocarbon date test placed the child's death in the early Bronze Age period.
An ancient child's skull has been found on a farm in Stranraer.
Farmer Jock McMaster was ploughing his field when he came across the skull, which is thought to be around 3,500 years old.
Mr McMaster, uncovered a stone-lined pit at Blairbuy Farm after his plough dislodged when it made contact with the grave.
The burial 'cist' is believed to be one of the oldest ever found in Scotland.
