    "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."

The Things Kids Say!

My eight year old came out with two belters this evening.

First of all we were ordering an Indian carry out. ‘Would you like a curry?’ I asked her. ‘Does hippopotamus have a ‘p’ in it?’ came the reply.

Then ten minutes later having accused her ten year old sister of having ‘boobs like mushrooms’ I said, ‘Eh excuse me, that’s rude!’ to which she replied ‘Ah but rude is the new fun!’

I’m not sure if she can spell precocious.

  1. She is excellent- surely her own blog is imminent.

  2. Missy, she already has one! (unfortunately private)

  3. Rude is the new fun – I’m remembering that one!

  4. Not if you’re Ross L Brand it ain’t !!

  5. Sounds like both of them need a good smacking and to be sent to their beds with no supper.

    Little madams… 😉
