    "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."

Hygeine Procedures

It was good to be at the Dumbarton FC end of season do last night. Because the Sons have reached the play offs, the Abbotsford Hotel was packed to the rafters.

It was good to catch up with several readers of this blog. I was speaking to Robbo and we had remarked that some revellers had gone to the toilet with their plates of food and left them on the side as they did the necessary.

Robbo reported that one chap, having completed his task at the urinal, then went to use the hand drier for about twenty seconds before picking up his plate again.

It would seem that he didn’t regard the washing of his hands as a necessary part of the process.

  1. Years ago they did a study of germs in public toilets and found that there were more harmful germs on the door handles than in the urinals. It appears that however clean you get your hands you’re still pulling a door handle that all the people who haven’t washed their hands have pulled.

    They also did a study of household germs to include a dishcloth, food cutting board and a toilet seat. The cutting board held by far the most harmful bacteria with the toilet seat the least. So you’d be better cutting your food on your toilet seat.

  2. Do you wish me to recall the famous Toilet n’Twix story from The Dumbarton Community Stadium ?

  3. Only in Dumbarton would it be deemed necessary to take yer plate of grub tae the lavvie.
