Paddington Bear is famous the world over, having been translated into 30 different languages and sold more than 30 million books worldwide. This current batch of stories are taken from his second book; “More About Paddington Bear” which was first published in 1959. It was written by Michael Bond and illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. The polite immigrant bear from darkest Peru, with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and love of marmalade sandwiches has become a classic character from English literature. Here at Jammy Toast, we are pleased to bring you some more of the tales which have made Paddington Famous the world over…

Today, we continue our series of posts featuring our favourite films. There is nothing the bears love more than settling around the telly to watch one of our favourite films. Here at Jammy Toast, some of those films have been watched over and over and we would like nothing better than sharing them with you. Our tastes are many and varied as we enjoy films from some of our favourite directors and actors, some of whom we just love everything they do. So today, we continue our tour of some of our favourite movies of all time with Passengers.
We love dogs here at Jammy Toast and have a soft spot for German Shepherds in particular. So this weekend we were especially moved by the story of one German Shepherd cross by the name of Floyd. Floyd has spent most of his 10 years living in an animal shelter but has finally found a new home. He was the longest-staying resident at Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool but has now moved in with one of the shelter’s dog walkers. For years, Floyd found interacting with people very stressful after a traumatic start to his life, Freshfields said. But the charity said Floyd was now “safe and happy” in his new home.
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…
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.
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!
