    "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."

Vox Pops

Before I started blogging at WordPress I had a vox blog. Tonight I read that you could import your vox blog to your WordPress one. That is what I’ve just done and it was simple. So now the archives go back here to May 2007 but anything posted pre end January 2008 was from the previous blog.

Well done WordPress for this feature.


Dumbarton’s Big Game

This Saturday the Sons face Stirling Albion at Strathclyde Homes Stadium. The club is promoting it as “Dumbarton’s Big Game”. I know several Sons fans look in here and I’d like to ask you to do any combination of three things. Number one consider taking a hospitality package for the game. Season ticket holders can do this for £30 which includes a pre match lunch and a comfy seat. To book your place contact hospitality@dumbartonfootballclub.com
Now I appreciate that £30 is a lot of cash at this time of year so if you can’t go to hospitality for any reason then number two on the list is why not persuade a pal who doesn’t normally attend games to go along with you? This way we could add considerably to the gate and thus help the club who haven’t had much money coming in with all the recent postponements.
Which brings me to the third and final thing.
The quiz at DFC is always a good night, and it takes place on Saturday evening after the game. There is still space for a few teams of six. If you’d like to enter, have a bit of fun and maybe have the opportunity of one of the prizes on offer then contact secy@sonstrust.net with your details.

In case I’ve missed anything here, then please click here for the club site.
