Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!

Two homeless bears are struggling to find a new home – because they are both alcoholics. A British animal charity is appealing for help in finding a home for the pair who were confiscated from a Russian restaurant. Anna Kogan from the British Big Hearts Foundation said that they were struggling to find somewhere in Europe that was capable of taking the bears. She said; “The problem is that they are alcoholics, and it is even more difficult to wean bears off alcohol than it is with human beings.”

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 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 that have scared Razzi

Here at Jammy Toast we have always had a fascination with the old railway lines and stations that abound around the Wirral. For example, did you know that the West Kirby line didn’t use to end at West Kirby but instead continued round and joined up with Hooton Station? There was also a line that continued on from Rock Ferry that went down to Monks Ferry and on to a station down at Woodside. We have recently been researching just where all these lines and stations were situated, when they opened and closed and also the state of any remaining sites today. The whole subject is a fascinating insight into a past age of steam which has interested people for many years

The following article appeared in the Guardian newspaper earlier this year and announced it would uncover my past, my legacy and the reason why I have a triangular nose. It was a supported article – in other words the newspaper was paid to print it as an advertisement for MAA, the Marketing Agencies Association. It describes how it all started

Alot of water has flowed under the bridge since, however this week sees the twenty-fifth anniversary of the release of Smells Like Teen Spirit and Nirvana’s second album Nevermind. The early 1990s saw the Grunge explosion and many are weighing up what it all meant a quarter of a century later. The album, Nirvana’s first since signing to major label DGC Records, came out on 24th September 1991.

Jammy Toast’s Christmas will never be the same again now that Quality Street have decided to replace the Toffee Deluxe in its tins. The brown-wrapped toffee is being replaced by a new choice, the Honeycomb Crunch – sounds like a Crunchie to us. “We wanted to celebrate Quality Street’s 80th birthday by introducing the first new sweet for nearly a decade. We did extensive research and found that the Honeycomb Crunch was the most popular option,” says Nestle.
