    "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."

Chess Boxing!

It’s one of those ‘has the world gone completely mad?’ moments. I heard an article about this on the radio while I was on holiday and I had intended to do a piece on it before now. Did you read the heading wrong? no you didn’t. This sport is a combination of the twin skills of chess and boxing. It has the snappy combined title of Chess Boxing


Silence Your Rooster!

Insomnia is a curse and one which hits me from time to time. This morning I woke up about 4:30 and that was it – no more sleep. In surfing around for a cure I found This Site for an American product called Ambien CR which is a sleeping tablet. Their advertising tag line is ‘Silence Your Rooster!’ If you go to the link above there’s a game you can play called ‘ruffle some feathers’ which involves throwing pillows at the rooster. There’s also a link entitled ‘watch the clips’ which lets you see their fiendishly clever 15 second advertising clips. They’re also on youtube but embedding is disabled.
