    "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."

More Pareidolia




I wrote about pareidolia here a couple of years back.

It’s the phenomenon of seeing faces, figures or forms in random objects and it is something I’ve been reminded of in two news stories tonight.

For example does this tea kettle remind you of someone?


And then there’s the altogether more dramatic revelation about a possible rodent on Mars

Is There a Heavenly Presence Here?

I wrote about Pareidolia and Apophenia a while back.

I’m intrigued because my correspondent Kevin left the following comment on my posting about the Bin Laden seashell being auctioned on Ebay:

I’ve searched the photo on the header which is what Kevin refers to, and whilst I think I can see a sleeping lion cub on the slopes of the Ben, nae Jesus I’m afraid.

If any readers can spot the Lord on the Loch or His Holiness in the Hills, can you let me know please?

Or Kevin, maybe you can be more specific?
