    "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."

  1. The SpecSavers advert (the one where the Space Shuttle arrives at the wrong airport!) is being shot in Glasgow.

  2. looks old,like world war II -peering from a room at the enemy planes-Am I WAY off?

  3. yeah maybe the space shuttle everyone was trying to get a pic of as it passed their city!

  4. All the elements of the answer are here. It is indeed the Space Shuttle on the back of a Boeing 747 jumbo jet. The photo was taken in 1985 as they flew over Glasgow. The spires belong to Glasgow University.

  5. They were just a wee bit off course then.
