    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Pathetic

A New York bride is suing a florist for £200,000 because the flowers they provided were the "wrong shade".

Elana Glatt, who is a lawyer, is suing Posy Floral Design in Manhattan for alleged breach of contract, reports Sky News.

She says the firm substituted pastel pink and green hydrangeas for the dark rust and green ones she had specified for 22 centrepieces.

Ms Glatt filed the lawsuit on behalf of herself, her husband David and her mother-in-law, Tobi Glatt.

In it she says: "The use of predominantly pastel centrepieces had a significant impact on the look of the room and was entirely inconsistent with the vision the plaintiffs had bargained for."

The flowers cost $27,000. The lawsuit asks for more than $400,000 in restitution and damages.

Stamos Arakas, the florist, said that he and his wife Paula tried to match the colour of the hydrangeas with a picture Ms Glatt had given them, but had explained the colours might not look the same.

Mr Arakas said: "My father used to tell me 'Don't deal with the lawyers'. Maybe he was right, God bless his soul."

Och!

What is it about Scotland?

Imagine beating France home and away, and having that magnificent win at the weekend over Ukraine, only to fail against Georgia. We badly missed Scott Brown,Paul Hartley and Lee McCulloch. Georgia were no great shakes but got their tactics right and fully deserved their victory.
