    "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."

Jimmy -isms

A full report on Helpless Dancer's nuptuals tomorrow.


In the meantime perhaps I can relate a couple of quotes from a very good friend of mine. He should really remain anonymous so lets call him Jimmy Cormack from Dumbarton.

Last season I had occasion to travel to a few Dumbarton away games with Jimmy. On our way to the game at Stenhousemuir, Jimmy and another occupant in the car, lets call him David Carson' were arguing which route to take. 'Top of the road then left' ,sayeth JC, 'Naw! you go right at the roundabout', says DC. 'I'm telling you it's left' says JC. DC by this time exaspirated says 'WTF do you know about it?'


'I'm a f*****g geography teacher!' says the bold Jimmy


On another occasion as we entered Elgin on the supporters bus and passed the Tesco superstore, Jimmy pipes up 'Every Little Helps! – that's not good English! in fact it's not even a propper sentence!'


I looked around the bus and at the various expressions on the faces of the punters by this time choking for a drink. ' I think you've just articulated the thoughts of everyone on the bus Jimmy', says I. He seemed genuinely pleased.
