    "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."

  1. Thanks Rab (and Glade Rover). That’s a good find.

    Despite all it’s faults I love my hometown. Not a lot has changed from those shots. I walked over London Bridge daily for nigh on 30 years on my way to work, and apart from the traffic it doesn’t look a lot different.

    Absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder. I haven’t been back for a few years but hope to visit soon.

  2. During three visits to London I never set foot in Hyde Park. Note to self: correct that next time.

  3. I visited London in 2008 for the first time since I’d lived there in the late 70s/early 80s. I’ve also been back with my daughter for her surgery. The main areas of the west end and city haven’t changed all that much but I noticed a real difference in the area I lived in which was about 10 miles or so from the hub. Jeni, I used to have my lunch in Hyde Park back in the day.

  4. I LOVE this film and the era is the one I love too! Thank you,I will share it on Facebook
