    "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."

Googled!

My pal Russell said he’d been having a laugh at Yours Truly on Google Streetview. I remember the day the wee google camera car came up our street. It was early in the morning and the blinds were down, it was a Tuesday so I’d just put the bins out. I had been googled on my doorstep but am only visible from certain angles on the site.

Then I remembered that I’d seen the same car a couple of days later on my day off. I had just turned the corner from Clyde St into Colquhoun St in Helensburgh. I wondered….surely not….if the camera…….(don’t be ridiculous)…….had captured me walking far too close to the wall with a Home Hardware bag in my hand.

Sure enough a quick check at the site found that streetview had caught the moment.

Johnny Rotten once famously said that a photo was “a second of your life ruined for life”

I’ve got several hours worth to back up that theory and this is unmistakably (the pre-weightloss) me.

Thanks to Alastair for the technical info on how to save the pics.
