    "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."

  1. Did the neds “Buzz” off with the signs?

  2. Listen Jaggy, Helensburgh gets the name of being so posh any neds are called edwards!

  3. Hmmm…the Yanks put a man on the moon in July 1969. What I want to know is where he was actually intended to go.

  4. Where’s Aldrin Rd Robert? Have I missed something or somewhere?

  5. Rosemary it’s in Colgrain. The houses were built 40 years ago and named after the moon landing astronauts.

    Here is the google map
