    "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."

Seventies Cheese – Sherbet

No, the above isn’t an exotic suite to be served up on Masterchef.  Sherbet were a lightweight Aussie, one hit wonder pop band.

I’d been reminded of the record in an intro quiz last night and how I laughed when I saw their gear on Youtube.

The more street aware amongst us managed to avoid the worst excesses of  hair and clothes in the 70’s of course.


Proof! The Tea Party Are Not W*****s!

Sadly, right wing nutjob conservative campaigner and tea party activist Christine O’Donnell was defeated in Delaware. I say sadly because she was perhaps the very person to get all these self abusers out of American politics.

Meanwhile tea party activists were celebrating their gains last night.

"I'd share 96% of my genes with that Sarah Palin anytime!"


On that subject check here (page 3) for the truly astounding fact that 47% of Americans believe that God created man in his present form within the last 10,000 years. This is opposed to the 35% who believe that humans evolved over millions of years from less advanced life forms. The respective comparative figures here in Scotland (page 7) are 12% and 75%.

It has to be said in their defence though that the 12% in Scotland could not be accused of organising themselves into agitated mobs like their American counterparts.
