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!

It means I always have a manager watching me and telling me wot to do — or checking wot I do if I do sumthin’ meself. Even though I get on with me manager I really want to be a manager meself. So after me last appraisal thingy with our area manager he always asks ya wot ya wanna be doing in like five years or something. So I told him I wanted to be a manager of me own shop.

Good Decision?

The other day here at Jammy Toast, we mourned the passing of Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds and learned some fascinating facts about the man. The star of such great films as Smokey And The Bandit, Deliverance and Boogie Nights could have had even more great roles if he hadn’t turned them down. During his sixty year career he maintained he was offered the parts of James Bond and Han Solo. When Sean Connery decided to call it a day as 007, the makers turned to Burt but he turned them down saying that he didn’t think people would accept an American James Bond. “It was a stupid thing to say, I could’ve done it and I could’ve done it well,” he told USA Today in 2015.

We were all saddened last night to hear of the death of Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds. The star of one of our favourite ever film series’, Smokey And The Bandit, the wisecracking movie heartthrob and Oscar nominee died in a Florida hospital at the age of 82 with his family at his side. The moustachioed megastar had undergone heart bypass surgery in 2010. He shot to fame in 1972’s Deliverance, and became a Hollywood legend with his roles in Smokey And The Bandit, The Cannonball Run and Boogie Nights.

Our Granny #21

Acouple of years ago Granny got fed up with people knocking on the door of The Jammy Toast Centre. Just as she sat down to watch Judge Rinder – her favourite – a Jehovah’s Witness would come knocking on the door to talk about religion. Now Granny gives family total shit if she is in a bad mood. She thinks nothing of ripping into any of us if she is in a particular mood that day. Razzi says he throws his hat in the house to see what kind of reaction he is going to get first – if he doesn’t like the response then he stays in the car all night. However, with people she doesn’t know she is a total chickenshit. She will literally not say “boo to a goose” and ends up standing at the front door for hours being preached to about Jehovah.

Here at Jammy Toast we love the odd puzzle. We have posted a few of the better ones before now as a footer to that day’s post. However, we couldn’t resist posting this one as the post itself. It took us an age to find the car in the picture below and now when we look at it the car seems so obvious and I wonder how we ever missed it in the first place. By all means comment on it below but please don’t ruin it for others by giving the answer away. We think you will enjoy this.

Today we are continuing a series of posts featuring old pictures of the Wirral. As most of you know, Razzi and I travel around the Wirral all week and it is amazing how quickly something can change. Suddenly the demolition crews move in and within a couple of months an old building disappears and a new building or houses replace it – another Wirral landmark becomes a memory. So starting today we are going to remind you of what old Wirral used to look like or, if you have never visited the Wirral, show you an old photograph and its modern equivalent – where we can

Iwas sitting in our doctor’s surgery waiting room last week when I remembered the old building which was knocked down a few years ago. The new building is a very swanky, modern building on the site of the old one – a vast difference from the old-fashioned Victorian building it replaced. Doctor’s don’t hurry, so as I was sitting waiting I was reminiscing about the old building and wondered why it was so large. Similar old hospital buildings on the Wirral are much smaller – along the lines of cottage hospitals – whereas St Catherine’s old building was huge. I decided to have a little internet search when I got home to see what the story was.
