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.
Some of you will have noticed that Chimpton has been getting more and more agitated recently. Her Asperger’s is running out of control and her Tourette’s is getting “fooking” worse. The amount of prescribed medication she is taking has reached the level where it now has to be delivered by DHL – and she still wants more. She is also beginning to lose her slender grasp on the reality she once had under control – many years ago now. Once upon a time, Chimpton and I would make plans for Granny’s meandering wander down the path to dotage and the steps we would take when she got beyond rational help. This has now turned full-circle to the point where Granny and I are needing plans for Chimpton’s fall into the abyss of psychiatric turmoil. Basically, her cheese has now well and truly slipped off her cracker!
It has been a weekend and a half on Merseyside as an estimated 1.5million people made their way to the banks of the Mersey to catch a glimpse of the Giant, Little Boy Giant and Xolo ahead of their journey home. The Giants took over Liverpool and Wirral for their spectacular adventure. Then yesterday, crowds in Liverpool were even treated to a special appearance from the Little Girl Giant, who holds a place in the heart of Scousers.
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…
Hi everyone, hope you have all had a great week – Tranmere have had a fantastic week with two games and two wins. Tuesday night saw the Super White Army return to winning way after a superb second-half performance to clinch an impressive 1-0 victory over league leaders Lincoln. The visitors had dominated the first half but James Norwood – who was sent off in injury time – scored his eighth goal of the season on 62 minutes and Rovers were able to hold out for a gutsy win.
Today I am going to continue with my series of posts to tell you all about the doggies we have had the fortune to have known over the years. We really love German Shepherds, or Alsatians, here at Jammy Toast – mostly because they are so loving and intelligent. They make great guard dogs but are also friendly towards the rest of their pack – human, bear or otherwise. The first German Shepherd we ever had was a character by the name of Max. Just like his owner, Max was a little special and had a few social problems. These problems usually manifested themselves in his desire to kill anyone he met.
Hello, its 12 O’clock and time for some funnies. Andreaa is still away on another holiday in Turkey so it is left to me to cover her backside again. Last time she went away she gave me a couple of posts for me to post in her absence. No such luck this time. To be fair though, she doesn’t half work some hours for that shop of hers so maybe we can let her off this time. Unfortunately, it means you will have to put up with me again for this week but she should be back next week.
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!
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 fourth book; “Paddington Abroad” which was first published in 1961. 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…
My name is Karl and I am a cabbie living with my elderly Auntie since the break-up with my girlfriend. I live and work around Ladbroke Grove in London, struggling to get my life back on track. My closest companion is the voice in my head, a crotchety, misanthropic alter-ego who takes the form of my inner self. He is an uncensored true version of me who says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others. As I attempt to muddle my way through life, the voice appears periodically to guide, criticise and dispense his unorthodox philosophy of life. He’s a pain in the arse and often lands me in a whole lot of trouble. These are my thoughts…
