    "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."

Skid Row

Yes that’s ‘row’ as in rhymes with ‘now’

This is Scotland.

All human life is here.

  1. I once went to an Essex wedding where the bride ended up drunk doing the splits in her wedding dress with a pint of beer in her hands.

    They had the first dance to “Three Lions” and the bridegroom eventually started a fight.

    It was the day Paul Gascoigne scored that goal against Scotland at Wembley and someone had a radio in the church. As the bride and groom walked down the isle there was a big cry of “Yes!!”

    At another wedding I went to the bridegroom turned up at the reception in a red glitter cat-suit, had the first dance with his new wife then spent the rest of the evening disco dancing with his boyfriend.

    As you say, all human life.

  2. aisle

  3. it was the final ‘Temperance Hall’ aspect that got me!

    • One wonders what was “reformed” about it. Perhaps the actual “temperance” part? 🙂

  4. Greenock is just a bigger version of Dumbarton

  5. The happy couple may have had no memory of the melee, but the dress surely remembered the skidmark.
