There is nothing more we love 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…
We have to admit to being slightly biased here at Jammy Toast, but we love the Tomson advert where Miles, the sad teddy bear, finds happiness on his holidays. Miles replaced Simon the Ogre from a couple of years ago in an advertising campaign called “Discover Your Smile”. The ad tells the story of a much-loved bear called Miles who has been ground down by everyday life and is stuck in a routine. Miles is noticeably missing a smile as he’s stuffed into a bag by his owner and arrives at a Thomson resort where gradually his smile is restored.
The first job of the year is to wish all our friends a very happy and prosperous New Year. If you have followed Jammy Toast a while then welcome back but if you are a new visitor then make yourselves at home and have a nose around. Whoever you are, wherever you are from, we always like to see you here at Jammy Toast. Just in case you are new, then let me introduce ourselves. Here at Jammy Toast we save teddy bear, many of whom have been cast adrift into the hands of charity shops and eBay sales. All these bears need is a happy family home to make them feel safe and secure and provide them with a happy home where they can watch daytime telly and play on the internet.
Tonight we would like to wish everyone a happy new year and hop that you all have a wonderful time. Here at Jammy Toast we will not be wandering far as we are all dying with a mystery coughing bug which we cannot shake. We have had it since before Christmas and it is getting to the point now where we are getting headaches because we are coughing that much. The only problem with me and the bears living in such close proximity to each other is that we spread germs and diseases around very easily – hence we have all come down with the dreaded lurgy.
Anew survey suggests that a large number of teddy bears use social media websites and travel on holiday with their adult companions covering on average over 10,000 miles in their lifetimes. This proves that although most people start the relationships with bears while they are small, many carry that relationship into adult life. However, the biggest surprise revealed in the survey is that men are twice as likely to set up a profile for a teddy bear friend, online.
One of Jammy Toast’s greatest friends has died only two days after learning he had cancer. Motorhead frontman and former Hawkwind member Lemmy passed away after a short battle with a very aggressive cancer. Lemmy joined Hawkwind in 1972 and sang on their biggest hit single Silver Machine before being sacked following his arrest for drugs possession on a Hawkwind tour of America and Canada. He went on to form Motorhead – the name is US slang for someone who takes speed – in 1975 and recorded 22 albums, including Ace of Spades, as he became one of music’s most recognisable voices and faces.
By now Father Christmas will be back at the North Pole and hopefully enjoying a good rest after what must have been the most hectic of night’s work imaginable. No one works harder than Father Christmas or travels further in the name of work. We set Einstein the task of working out some of the figures involved and the results are quite startling. If you assume that Santa visits all the homes of all the Christian children in the world and that the average household has three children and that all the houses are evenly distributed around the world then Santa travels 212million miles.
