    "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."

Quarter of a Century!

There probably won’t be prolific posting here for a couple of days. That’s because tonight Sue (Mrs Bigrab) and I celebrate our Silver Wedding. It is a milestone that few couples reach these days and one we felt that should be marked and celebrated. We’re in for a great night as we have two great speakers and some superb musicians lined up to perform.

We have specifically requested no presents but instead have been fund raising for Epilepsy Action UK. Even though the party isn’t until this evening the total sits at a very healthy £705, which with the supplement by gift aid tops things up to over £850. We set a target of £1000 when we first set up our justgiving page and with pledges from friends and family made in advance of this evening, we are certain to exceed the target by some way.

I know several of the contributors read this blog. Sue and I would like to thank you all for your wonderful generosity and we really hope you have a great time and enjoy yourselves tonight.
