Liz (left) did a series of da
ncers but it was her cartoon of Cameron and the pig that caused much hilarity.
Unfortunately the Macrobert arts centre were not amused . They thought it reflected badly on them and asked for the hashtag on Twitter to be removed! they said they were non-political.
Hmmmm...there is such a thing as creative freedom.
Joy, age 82, is a former Scottish Water Ski champion. Now she has taken up dancing, T'ai chi and today- mud painting.
Finally we all did a scroll. Now I have got to find somewhere to show it. Any suggestions?

Live music is always a special treat and an afternoon of chamber music in a private house in Bridge of Allan makes it all the more exceptional, especially when it starts off with drinks and home-made canapés served in a beautiful garden.
The occasion was a fundraising event for
Pollok House Arts Society and the musicians were a group of women who first met as students at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.
Fifty years later, Shona Gidney, Angela Welch, Phyllis Strachan and Anne McKinnes still maintain that friendship, they love of music and today after a lifetime working as professional musicians they now play for pleasure.
Shona, their leader, explained that this is how Schubert would have performed -in a private house to a group of friends.

"Exits and entrances"
“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances,"
All the Worlds a Stage ( Shakespeare)
When you reach a “certain age “you discover the
morning post brings a plethora of leaflets about subjects you would rather not think about.
Take this one which I received today
Campaign for Dignity in Dying. Now this is a very worthy cause and I wholeheartedly support it.
I just wish I was not inundated with reminders of my own mortality, especially on a bleak dreich Monday morning with 60mph winds whipping through the glen.
But it’s the ones from the Co-op urging me to pay for my funeral in advance that annoy me.
