Show Your Soft Side #3

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.

There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…

Another Memory Fades

Many thanks must go to Dave Wood for the photograph of the Saint Pauls taken in 2000, just prior to its demolition.

Iwas in Liverpool a little while ago, searching for a main Post Office, which seems to be a rather difficult task these days. Once you discover one lurking in the shadows, it is then a case of finding somewhere to park close enough to not require the help of Sherpa Tenzing to reach it. I eventually found a place near what used to be Saint Pauls Square – home of the old Liverpool Stadium, just off Old Hall Street. That is when the old memories, long ago forgotten, started flooding back…

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!

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

From time to time we will share some of our favourite comedians and today we thought we would keep the ball rolling with
