    "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."

Still Here

Yes indeed I am. Thing is I haven’t had the time/inclination/inspiration to update much since returning to this blogging lark.

Stay tuned for sporadic postings!

Happy New Year!

To all my friends and readers.

Stand by….

I think I might return to this malarkey…..

Happy New Year

Indeed a very Happy and Prosperous New Year to everyone who takes the trouble to drop by these parts, especially those who have commented this year. I hope you all have the best possible 2013.

Back soon….

Thank you for the concern of several readers (two) who emailed to check I was ok.

I am currently enjoying a few days break in warmer climes. Will be back with some photos and stories soon.


Back Soon

Sorry for the lack of posting, I’ll be back soon.

In the meantime I see that the EU has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

As young folk would say, WTF?



Back soon

Apologies for lack of postings here in recent days.

Hopefully inspiration will return soon.

Taking a break

Sorry about the lack of posting recently.

Going to take a wee break until I rediscover my mojo.

Thanks a Million!

Sometime today this blog will receive its millionth ‘hit’ since I started it in January 2008.

With over 150 followers getting posts sent by email (I know it says 116 on the left there but the actual figure is higher) , the blog itself doesn’t get quite so many hits as it used to but I’m pleased that more than 350 visitors a day still look in.

I’m taking a wee break just now but should be back in a couple of days.

Thanks for visiting and if one of these daft wee flash things pops up saying that you’re the 1000,000th visitor and you’ve won an iPad, click on it.

You never know!

Edited to add:

Back Soon.

A combination of being tres busy and a lack of inspiration has conspired to mean not much posting. Back to normal soon.
