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…

The Voyager-1 space probe was in the news the other day because scientists are currently arguing over whether it has left our Solar System or not. It doesn’t really matter if it has not reached that goal just yet, the fact remains that Voyager-1 is the furthest man-made object from the Earth. Nothing ever made by man has ever travelled as far or ended up as far away from us as Voyager-1 has. If you are not sure what Voyager-1 is you can read about it here. While I was writing the post, I came across another story which Davidd said I should post here on Jammy Toast; simply because he thought everyone would find it fascinating – I know I did. The other story I came across concerns a photograph Voyager-1 took back in the 1990.

Our friends at Foster’s have sent us their new Brad & Dan advert before it has even been shown on the television. Because they know how much we all love the adventures of the Aussie duo they decided to let us have a sneak preview before anyone else gets the chance. The latest blockbuster features Brad in France ringing Dan back in Australia for advice on how to deal with French guys kissing each other at a party.

Everyone here at Jammy Toast was upset yesterday to hear the news that our favourite horror author James Herbert had died at the age of 69. His publisher, Pan Macmillan, confirmed that he died at his home in Sussex although no cause of his death was given. Jeremy Trevathan, his editor for 10 years, described him as “one of the keystone authors in a genre that had its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s”. Speaking yesterday, our very own Einstein Bear said; “Why we even liked James Herbert I shall never know, he always scared the life out of us.”

Could The Bears End Up In Court?

A deal was struck yesterday between the three main political parties on a new press regulation regime in the wake of the News of The World phone-hacking scandal. The deal means an independent regulator will be set up by Royal Charter with powers to impose million pound fines on publishers who break publishing rules. The idea is to safe-guard people from press intrusion by members of the press. However, it is not clear from the initial announcement just who is covered by the new charter. Bloggers could also be held accountable which could see the bears being fined up to £1million and forced to write an apology to anyone they have wronged.

Many rare teddy bears have gone on display in a new exhibition on the history of the cuddly bear in Hampshire. The exhibition is being held at Portsmouth City Museum and features some very early examples of teddies as well as famous bears from books, films and television. The display includes a teddy version of Shakespeare’s Globe theatre using more than fifty Steiff bears. All the bears are on loan from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood and admission is free.

The bears have had a brainwave today to help raise money for Red Nose Day. It is quite a simple idea and one which we hope will raise a little towards a great cause. For every comment that is left on Jammy Toast tonight, between the hours of 6pm and midnight, the bears will send 10p towards Comic Relief. Before you all try to bankrupt us by leaving thousands of comments each, we are limiting it to one per bear friend. So if you visit us tonight please make sure you leave a comment and we will donate 10p to Comic Relief.

With all this talk of religion, and a new Pope being elected at the moment, I suddenly had a thought – are the bears religious? I am pretty sure the subject of religion and god and has never popped its head prior to today, so I thought I would ask a few questions. Einstein is always the bear who seems to be the expert on most issues so I decided I would ask him. According to him, the bears have their own religion which is based around Buddy Christ.
