    "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."

Lodged in the Memory

Campbell (sonsdiary) makes comment in the caption competition below regarding the up and coming friendship festival in Glasgow on Sunday, otherwise known as the Old Firm match. Campbell reckons Jim Murphy might be asking for divine intervention on behalf of his team. As this photo (sent to me by a BLFP correspondent) implies however, more direct assistance may sometimes be sought on such occasions.

Edit: I posted this item this morning. One hour ago this appeared on the BBC website

Caption Competition

What on earth is Jim Murphy doing here?

I mean I have heard about kissing the ring but I thought that was about jewellery!

Erra Macaroon Bars anna Spearmint!

Does anyone know why the guys who would frequent football terraces selling sweets from cardboard boxes in my youth confined themselves to these two particular genres?

This was just a Scottish thing wasn’t it?
