Some of you may remember when I used to produce drawings for us each month and have my own column dedicated to art in general and my pencil drawings in particular. Then I got busy with the artwork for Jammy Toast and my column went by the board. Now, you might be pleased to hear, Davidd has decided to re-introduce my column but with a difference. I used to draw using a set of pencils which were bought for me and I got pretty good at it too – you can see many of my drawings if you click on the Art & Toons > Egginanoo’s Art > Drawings menu above.

Show Your Soft Side #5

Following a number of complaints recently – concerning our Weather Forecasting service being sexist – we have decided to run a series of posts which the ladies might find appealing. Also, while we are on the case, here at Jammy Toast we love dogs and cats and so were interested to learn that over in America they are currently running an anti-cruelty campaign for pets. “Show Your Soft Side” is a public service campaign that was created to change the mind-set of young people who all-too-often view the maiming and torturing of defenceless cats and dogs as a sign of “toughness” or “manhood”. The campaign’s message that compassion towards animals is a sign of strength, not weakness, is one that, overnight, struck a nerve across America with old and young alike. Today, Show Your Soft Side, uses its reach and resources to build a better world for animals and, in doing so, build better adults.

Hello again all you Jammy Toasters. That seems to be a new generic name for people who read our blog and I have to admit I quite like it. I don’t mind being referred to as a Toaster, I even think it is quite funny. It may have been Lestly who started it off, I can’t quite remember. Anyway, I would just like to offer my apologies for the gap between my posts. When I checked, I noticed it has been over twelve months since I last posted something art related, so maybe I am not a Toaster anymore after all. In reality I have been doing other things but I just don’t seem to get the chance. Other people are more loud and vociferous than I am and so they get there first. I am only writing this now because Davidd came and asked me. However, I will try my best to post things more often.

Rum Babas

Last Saturday, Great Uncle Bimbo shared his memories of Saturdays when he was a young bear and happened to mention Rum Babas. These were cakes that he would have as a special treat after his lunch with Davidd and Da every Saturday. In case you missed Bimbo’s post last Saturday, Rum Babas are lovely yeast-risen cakes soaked in rum syrup and topped with cream and a cherry. Once the darling of French cuisine and available in most supermarkets over here, they seem to have fallen out of favour and are now very difficult – if not impossible – to find.

Hello everyone, my name is Egginanoo Bear and I have not posted anything here on Jammy Toast for ages. I love art and usually do drawings and even have a gallery of my work here on Jammy Toast put just lately I seem to have been side-lined. I have said before that I think that the only reason I have my gallery is so they can post something on the days they can’t think of anything to write about. This has kind of backfired on me because they have been very busy posting things and there is no place for ‘writer’s block’ here at Jammy Toast – they are a very creative bunch.

Too Hot To Be An Engineer

Today is Ada Lovelace Day. To celebrate four female engineers from around the world are sharing their experiences of working in male-dominated professions. Now in its sixth year, the annual celebration of women working in the fields of science and technology is named after the woman now regarded as the world’s first computer programmer. Ada Lovelace worked with the inventor Charles Babbage on his “analytical engine” creation in the 1850s – a mechanical computing device that he designed but never built. This year is also the 200th anniversary of the birth of Ada Lovelace, daughter of mathematician Annabella Milbanke and the poet Lord Byron.
