    "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."

Great T.V. Themes

I notice from the press today that the winner of the best childrens' TV themes is the theme from the 1960's adaptation of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe. Presumably the people who voted were all of a certain age!

To say I loved this programme would be an understatement. I often imagined I was Crusoe and played games based on the story. I'm sure any boy who watched the show was affected in the same way. The idea was so exciting and the character of Crusoe brilliantly portrayed (in a 1960's way anyway) by Robert Hoffman.

 

                                     If you are a 60's or 70's child, try watching this without any emotion.
