    "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."

Has spring sprung?

I gave the grass at Bigrab Towers its first cut of the year on Sunday. Well the clocks had gone forward to British Summer Time and although it was cold, it was dry.

I passed by Ben Lomond three times yesterday. In the morning this was the wintry scene:

But by lunchtime, this rather more Easter like view greeted me:

One can but hope.

I hereby tentatively declare that spring is here.

  1. Nothing so dramatic has been seen at the Lewis Estate, but I can report three clumps of blooming crocuses (croci?) and many little shoots of red or green poking out of the soil here and there.

    The shoots which generated the greatest huzzahs are from the plants which were added last year: “They made it!”

  2. Glad it is raising its head up there with you..here in N.Wales it still looks Picture one ish!
