    "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."

AnElephant in the USA

For those of you wondering what has happened to AnElephantCant I can report that he is safe and well and currently on walkabout in the USA.


AnElephant and a heart in San Freancisco. See what he’s done here?

Check out the link above to see how he’s doing. Since switching to WordPress he has built up quite a wee community of doggerel lovers, including, it has to be said, a large number of his favourite people……laydeez.

He’s in the States for three months or so and it looks like he’s going to accompany that with a poem in every place and a stanza for every city.

He’s also been busy with the camera. This is Alcatraz:


Who knows where he’s headed next. Even he doesn’t know even though he’s packed his trunk:

AnElephantCant decide where to head to
Now that he has to leave San Francisco
He is kinda useless
Can’t spell Massachusetts
So that means New England’s a no-go

He’s not sure whether to head north or southwards
If you are due east he is not ignoring you
He could visit LA
It’s not far away
But he wants to see more than California

In the past he has vacationed in Florida
Seen the Everglades chilled out down the Keys
He has been very lucky
Spent time in Kentucky
And volunteered to enjoy Tennessee

He has visited Richmond Virginia
Georgetown and beautiful DC
So why not head north to Oregon
Continue through Washington
To Canada and Vancouver BC

He spent a magical week in New Orleans
French Quarter Jazz Jambalaya Fun
Paddle boat on Mississippi
This delighted old hippy
Stayed in the legendary House of the Rising Sun

He can point his trunk towards Arkansas or Kansas
Sound different but spelt just the same
Utah Idaho
Iowa Ohio
Or Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain

He has an interesting offer from Texas
From sweet Meme his well-known special one
No improper suggestion
Just one simple question
Dear Meme does your husband have a gun?

He will probably just continue to be aimless
But he promises he will stay in touch
He is not in a hurry
He does not ever worry
Some nice lady always feeds him peanuts
