    "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."

A Different World

Mind boggling.

On so many different levels.

However the most amazing fact about the Graff jewel heist in New Bond Street in London is that 43 items of jewelery could be worth £40 million!

At average earnings in the UK, each item of jewelery is worth roughly what someone would earn in about 30 years.

Each item.

And there were 43 of them.

The perpetrators had apparently been made up with latex masks by an unsuspecting 20 year old who thought she was doing work for a music video.

Although there were shots fired and an assistant was taken hostage for a while, there was no-one hurt.

So the only loss is to an insurance company who are offering £1million reward for information.

So readers, if you had information would you be phoning New Scotland Yard or keeping schtum?

What is your most extravagant purchase ever?


Have you ever stolen anything?


Fitba’ – Tooth and Claw!

It has been a pretty desperate start to the season for the Sons. For the second week in a row we were defeated 3-1, this time away at Arbroath.

One cheeky Arbroath fan posted the following clip of his side’s third goal, scored with the last kick of the game.

This is football in the raw. A few hundred fans on a windy east coast day with the North Sea virtually lapping at the side of the football ground.

Oh aye and don’t watch this if you’re offended by bad language!
