    "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."

Kelvingrove

I was at the Art Gallery in Glasgow last month for the Jack Vettriano exhibition. He’s an artist who certainly divides the critics. As the kind of guy who couldn’t paint a nose on a false face (And your classic “I don’t know much about art but I know what I like” observer) I quite like some of his stuff although some of it is a bit samey.

Plenty famous folk seem to like him with figures as diverse as Jack Nicholson and Sir Alex Ferguson lending from their private collections to the exhibition.

However whilst I was there I got a couple of photos. This is the magnificent exterior of the building:

And this is Saint Mungo and a couple of admirers guarding the rear entrance:

  1. The art gallert and museum has always been a favourite place of mine since I was first taken there as a kid. There was a story that the architect who designed the building killed himself because it had been built facing the wrong way, any truth in that Rab?

    • I also heard that rumour Toronto Tam…oops…probably from the same source as we are Brothers…However, if Saint Mungo and his supporters had guarded a few other ‘rear entrances’ then the Catholic Church wouldn’t have the problems it has.
