    "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."

Hygeine Procedures

It was good to be at the Dumbarton FC end of season do last night. Because the Sons have reached the play offs, the Abbotsford Hotel was packed to the rafters.

It was good to catch up with several readers of this blog. I was speaking to Robbo and we had remarked that some revellers had gone to the toilet with their plates of food and left them on the side as they did the necessary.

Robbo reported that one chap, having completed his task at the urinal, then went to use the hand drier for about twenty seconds before picking up his plate again.

It would seem that he didn’t regard the washing of his hands as a necessary part of the process.

Sporting Integrity

It was a very over used phrase on the fitba phone ins last evening in relation to the possible future status of any Rangers newco.

However this heartening tale of a player in Norway being sent off for protesting against a penalty, awarded to him and one of the team’s players subsequently deliberately missing it, surely restores one’s faith in the concept.

What would Neil Lennon have said?

Thanks to Claret and Amber for the story.
