    "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."

Yes ladies and gentlemen, all good things must come to an end.

I’ve enjoyed the experience but for a number of reasons have decided to hang up my keyboard.

Thank you for your attention and your comments over the years.

All things must pass.

  1. BOO…HISS…BOO…oops sounds like a gig…only kidding, you’ll be sadly missed Rab. I guess the financial sector takes it’s toll for the big rewards.!!!

  2. I’ll miss it.
    All the best Rab.

  3. There comes a time when blogging becomes a burden rather than a pleasure, often it can coincide with major changes in one’s life, well that’s what happened with me.

    Having said that I find that Facebook is less demanding and remains fun rather than the chore that blogging had become.

    Enjoy your time, sometimes it can become precious.

  4. I understand why, but I guess you should never say never, and who knows, you may be back one day after a break. It is sad to see the end of one of Scotland’s best bloggers. Keep yourself on Facebook though, and the hole might be filled, at least partially!

  5. Aw that’s a shame. As a regular reader and occasional commenter I wish you all the best.

  6. Are you sure you can cope without my comments?

    Good luck big chap.

  7. Breakfast reading will never be the same. All the best Robert.

  8. Good luck with the new venture

    I ve , quietly enjoyed the read/ride!


  9. Aw jeez! I’ve just joined this! Sod’s law. Maybe see you at the caple with the girls 🙂

  10. Sad news. This is indeed one of Scotland’s finest!

  11. Oh, dear. Was it something we said?

    You will be missed more than you probably know — best wishes!

  12. Sorry to see what,at times, was an excellent and informative read, go

    All the best!

  13. so long and thanks for all the fish…

  14. I hear ya Rab, like you I too have come to the decision to give up on my blogging activities, after 5 years I have simply run out of steam.

    I have enjoyed your musings on life’s imponderables as recorded within the pages of your humble blog .. good luck at what ever life throws at you in future

    Yours Aye
    The Big Dollop

  15. WHIT? Quitting is for quitters!!!!! Sorry to hear of the demise of TBLFP as I have enjoyed your insight and humour.. This new business venture is already taking up way too much of your time;-) So how are we who live in the colonies ever going to keep up with the exploits of The Sons and thir 40 odd supporters?

  16. first Alastair’s substitute blog – then the pet shop – then the free press. What next Rab – a pile of clothes on the beach !
    seriously though Robert – Happy trails and I’ll maybe see you further on down the road.

  17. I like to check back often regarding your daughter. Please, do let me know if you ever want to share your thoughts. I would love to continue to follow her journey.
