In his imperishable Treatise on the Art of Political Lying, published in 1714, Dr. John Arbuthnot laid down a standard for falsifiers and calumniators that has yet to be excelled:
Detractory or defamatory lies should not be quite opposite to the qualities the person is supposed to have. Thus it will not be found according to the sound rules of pseudology to report of a pious and religious prince that he neglects his devotions and would introduce heresy; but you may report of a merciful Prince that he has pardoned a criminal who did not deserve it.

What are some good art workshop ideas for adults with celebral palsy?
I am a volunteer in a local association of young adults with cerebral palsy.
Lately I have noticed that the teacher who is holding these workshops does not have any new ideas for the projects. Many of the projects that have been done before, are repeating.
I would like to come up with some new arts or crafts ideas that people with cerebral palsy could do, to improve the workshop, Any ideas please?
Thank you all in advance!!
In a rehab center in Germany I saw a woodwork workshop where they work together to make hangers, spice racks, and the sort. Does your workshop have a sewing machine? If it does, they can make bags/ accessories and sell it in a market/fair that the center hosts.
