    "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."

Merry Christmas Everyone!


I’m not religious but really who can’t take part in Christmas in some way in a culturally Christian country?

And who can avoid overspending, overeating and drinking too much?

Not me.

I will no doubt reappear soon from that debauchery but in the meantime a very Merry Christmas to everyone.

Especially you.

  1. What’s not to like about Christmas Day? Well,

    The pub opening hours for a start. (12-2? What’s that about Euan?)

    Pubs full of once-a-year drinkers with their bloody soft drinks.

    If the pub is an eatery it’s bound to be full of greetin’ weans.

    There are no trains or buses to go to more distant pubs.

    Taxi drivers charge a fortune to get you home from the pub.

    If I go to a pub in Dumbarton I can’t even nip out and buy a seed-stick.

    And if I had a televisual device I’d moan about that too.

    Bah, humbug to the lot of you.

  2. Merry Christmas!

  3. Quite a diverse group-your readers…love it
    Merry Christmas and yes it’s the gathering of the family and friends that is the best part for me.

  4. What’s with staying outside with the dogs? I thought we’d all be going into the pub. Or is that pub the kind that doesn’t welcome man’s best friend?
