    "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."

Another Belated Happy Birthday

How could I have missed it?

On the 24th January The Ben Lomond Free Press celebrated its first birthday!

Thank you to everyone who has looked in during our first birl round the sun and in particular thank you to those of you who have taken the trouble to reply to, or comment on my posts.

birthday-cakeSince 24th January 2008 this blog has received over 110,000 hits. The vast majority of comments have been favourable. Let me say quite honestly that I am proud of the regular contributors here. I know some of you personally and others I feel as if I know personally. You represent many different political, social and religious views, but always maintain a good discussion rather than resort to name calling or flaming.

Thank you for that.

Here’s to the next year!
