    "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"

Far fetched? Well no not really, both Subway and Moss Pharmacy have already altered their colour schemes to exclude green in their Larkhall outlets.

One wonders if the stories about the ice cream vans playing ‘The Sash My Father Wore’ or calendars containing January, February, March March March have some truth!
