    "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."

Skid Row

Yes that’s ‘row’ as in rhymes with ‘now’

This is Scotland.

All human life is here.

Wedding (Fern) Cake.

Yes indeed my good friend and correspondent Fern Cake gets married at a picturesque venue on the shores of Loch Lomond on Saturday. I just hope that there is time for the future Mrs Cake and he to look in and study this video.

Given that the groom and best man are to wear kilts and profess to be true Scots, some of the moves here could be a sensation. 8)

Sunday Fitba’

Today Dumbarton play Morton in the Alba cup.

The game was moved from yesterday because the function suite at the stadium was booked for a wedding. The booking had been made a couple of YEARS ago when there looked little chance of a competitive game being scheduled for that day.

My what a stushie there’s been in the press and radio about it and also I may say amongst some supporters of the club.

The club makes income from hiring out the function suite and the clash was not foreseeable. They took the sensible course and sought for permission to move the game. The Football authorities and Morton FC had no problem with it.

So the bride and groom got their wedding as scheduled, and the club have a game on a Sunday and might attract a few more fans along.

There is surely no problem here.

Here are a couple of the more positive articles concerning the switch from
The Scotsman and the Record who I think had reflected on their previous day’s negative article on the subject.

For Helpless Dancer

My friend and correspondent The Helpless Dancer gets married at Helensburgh Registry Office tomorrow. I was looking around for something to mark this occasion on the blog.

I am indebted therefore to www.hitched.co.uk for the following
