    "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."

Remember when teachers, nurses, doctors, librarians, social workers, care assistants, bin men and lollipop ladies crashed the stock market, wiped out banks, took billions in bonuses and paid no tax?

No, me neither.


The Lomond List

This week’s eclectic mix straight from ma heid to your lugs via Spotify:

Apparently the link to last week’s list wasn’t working – now sorted.

Horse D’Oevres

My old friend, and occasional correspondent here, Glade Rover, forwards this photo sent to him by his brother who lives in Thailand; He had noticed a rather interesting item on a menu:

Half a kilo! quite a bargain eh?

I’m beginning to wonder if this is the secret ingredient in Morrisons Value Curry Sauce!

Buffalo 1905

Another fantastic photo from Shorpy. It’s of Buffalo, New York in 1905 and shows the steamer North Land with the Main St and town in the background.

This is a jar of Morrisons Value Curry Sauce.

Its ingredients are tomato purée, onion, sultanas, sugar, curry powder, coriander, tumeric, fenugreek, cumin, mustard, ginger, pepper, paprika, chilli and nutmeg amongst others.

Your challenge, without checking is to tell me just how much value is in this curry sauce?

How much for a 440g jar?

Wednesday Waits – Missing My Son

This track, from 2007’s Orphans, Brawlers and Bastards, came on the iPod last night at random.

Worth sharing.
