Ididn’t get the chance to post any of my drawings here on Jammy Toast last month because there wasn’t enough days in the month, with Christmas etc. So I decided to push the boat out this month and do a few drawings for you all to look at. We love our films here at Jammy Toast so I thought I would try to draw some of our favourite actors. I hope you like them and, even more importantly, I hope you can tell who they are. See what you think…
At the risk of sending Razzi back into hiding under his bed, we thought today we would tell you all a story we have heard recently regarding a ghost. The story revolves around Green Lane Railway Station which opened in 1886 and since then there have been umpteen stories of ghosts being seen in and around the station. One foggy evening in the early 1960s, the station was the scene of one such terrifying manifestation. It took place on a cold December night when the station was deserted except for one person waiting impatiently for a train.
Hi everyone, this is Edward here to let you all know we have lost our Bearkeeper and Razzi. They should have been back in about five o’clock to do sort out tonight’s post but so far there is no sign of them – which is very unlike our Bearkeeper. So, while we wait for normal service to be resumed, I thought that best thing to do would be to have one of our infamous Open Nights or, as we like to call them, our “It’s Good To Talk” night’s. Whenever things are a little hectic around here we can think of no better way of having a little fun. In case you have been living down a hole for the last five years or you have not come across one before an Open Night is when literally anything goes. Confused? Okay, let me explain…
Razzi is a little bit of a scaredy-cat and is often found hiding under the bed or behind the sofa when something scares him. If a horror film is on the telly then the first sign of trouble is when Razzi starts to go a little pale. Then when the monster or scary villain is revealed Razzi is nowhere to be seen – he is in hiding again. Not all bears are brave and whereas most bears hide up a tree if they are scared, Razzi is scared of heights. In this series of posts, we take a look at some of the monsters and villains that have scared Razzi…
Saturday night is Movie Night here at Jammy Toast. Each week we will show a movie through the Jammy Toast Cinema for our friends who have registered prior to each event.

Any Friend of The Bears is eligible to watch each week’s movie by applying in the usual way.

Quite a few people popped online yesterday to welcome Pwllheli Chimpton to his new home. While we were chatting, the subject came round to how the bear’s repress bad memories. This is where painful memories from their past are repressed by ‘motivated forgetting’. These memories are blocked out due to their painful or traumatic nature. It is a sad fact that many bears grow up loved by children who grow up and forget the teddy bear they once loved. In self-defence, the poor bears repress the happy memories to stop them from fretting for happier times. Many of our bears have been diagnosed as having Repressed Memory Syndrome (RMS) to block out such painful memories.
We were all gathered around yesterday here at the Jammy Toast Retirement Home, having a little chat, when there came a knock on the door. I looked at Miss Chimpton, she looked at Granny and Granny looked at me – all waiting for someone to go and see who was at the door. Luckily, Ekman was on his way down the stairs at the time so he went to the door to be greeted by the postman with a bear-sized parcel. He took the parcel from the postman, signed for it and then noticed that the postmark was Gwynedd. We were expecting a bear from Wales, so he came crashing in to me with the parcel. I opened the parcel and there, looking rather bleary eyed, was a rather small bear with a tiny little head.
Iknow I have already written my normal column this month, and that Edward normally writes about anything to do with computers, but I have asked Dave if I could write another post today. I want to do this because of the upsetting news we have just heard. Many years ago we didn’t have a computer, the internet didn’t exist and “downloading” was something that only happened in Star Trek. In fact, science fiction was our only real interest in computers. Then it all suddenly changed because of one stupidly annoying little arcade game. The game was called “Pong” and it was released on a games console made by a company called Atari.

We are pleased to announce we will have a new little friend joining us shortly. We have no idea about any of his details other than the fact he is from Wales – or Pwllheli in Gwynedd to be more precise. This has caused some consternation amongst the bears because we have not had a bear from Pwllheli before and we are not quite sure what language he will speak. If he does speak Welsh just how any of us will be able to understand him is another matter. In fact, the only thing we do know about our new friend is that he has never had a friend to play with!
