With the winter nearly upon us we thought it was time we brought back an old favourite here on Jammy Toast. With the colder weather now upon us we feel it is important we give you an accurate weather report. Providing this service can help you to plan your days out – would you need a raincoat or umbrella or would you be fine in just a t-shirt? As with everything else we do, we do it differently from other news and weather sites and we employ famous celebrities to tell you the weather in our own very special way. With this in mind, we have employed some of our favourite celebrities to impart the latest climatic conditions…
Yesterday, while we were researching our story concerning Sooty puppets up for auction, we came across a story which could rock the BBC to its very core. This story could be bigger than the Cliff Richard sex raid scandal. According to a letter written by Harry Corbett in 1965, the BBC tried to ban Sooty from having a girlfriend over fears it would “sex up” the show. One producer dismissed the idea “on the grounds that sex would be creeping into the programme”.
Have you ever wanted to own your very own little piece of bear history? If so, this could be the very thing for you. Fans of The Sooty Show have the chance to buy the ultimate toy memorabilia – an original hand puppet from the TV shows. Two puppets owned by father and son, Harry and Matthew Corbett, will be auctioned along with Sooty’s magic wand. One was used by Matthew Corbett in his last stage show in London in 1977. The other was given to Eunice Weston in 1960 after Harry Corbett stayed at her parents’ bed and breakfast pub in Clacton, Essex, while performing on tour.
As we do every year here at Jammy Toast, the bears kept their two minutes silence this morning to remember members of the armed forces who lost their lives over the years during conflict. This year was even more poignant as it is the hundredth anniversary of the end of World War I. As Big Ben struck eleven – the bell rang despite the maintenance work being undertaken – our bears joined the rest of the nation in remembering the fallen. Special events were held around the country to mark the occasion. The Queen was represented by Prince Charles at the Cenotaph while she observed the silence in Whitehall from the balcony of the nearby Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The Duke of Edinburgh, however, was absent.
Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week. Kabongo Tshimanga scored a stunning hat-trick for Oxford City but they were denied a major FA Cup upset by a late James Norwood goal in their draw at Tranmere. The National League South side fell behind to a first-half Connor Jennings goal but Tshimanga hit back either side of the break to put City in front. Micky Mellon made changes, bringing on Ben Tollitt and Johnny Smith in pursuit of more attacking width.
Festive Road was as busy as ever. I was not in my house at number 52, instead, I was in the garden talking with some of my neighbours. We were discussing the relative merits of our lawns – surely my immediate neighbours grass was more green and lush than mine, I was saying. I decided to take a stroll in the park, and when I see a kite soaring up into the blue beyond, my mind turns to the possibilities of adventures in space.

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!
The other night I rang Davidd to have one of our little chats while I was driving home from work.. I was in a funny mood && I told him some skatty things I have done && I thought I better tell yaas before he does, coz hes a right snitch.. We was talkin about cars && I said to him that it was positively baltic outside.. I was freezing walking from work to me car.. As I was driving home I noticed the little ice crystal was lit up on me dashboard so I told Davidd that when I first passed me test two years ago I never knew what it meant && so I took me car to Ford to get it fixed coz I thought it meant there was something wrong with me car.. The fella in Ford was pissin himself at me that day!!
My name is Karl and I am a cabbie living with my elderly Auntie since the break-up with my girlfriend. I live and work around Ladbroke Grove in London, struggling to get my life back on track. My closest companion is the voice in my head, a crotchety, misanthropic alter-ego who takes the form of my inner self. He is an uncensored true version of me who says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others. As I attempt to muddle my way through life, the voice appears periodically to guide, criticise and dispense his unorthodox philosophy of life. He’s a pain in the arse and often lands me in a whole lot of trouble. These are my thoughts…
