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…
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.
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!
Millions of people in the UK – including here at Jammy Toast and over at The Chimpton’s – have skipped sleep or made themselves tired the next day because they were binge-watching TV, new research has suggested. More than half of British adults watch more than one episode of the same show back-to-back at least once a month. Of those, a third – almost 10 million – admit they have missed sleep or become tired as a result, while a quarter say they have neglected household chores. Media watchdog Ofcom did the research into what it called “Box Set Britain”.
For those of you not in the know, I think it is about time I explained who Granny is. You have heard many stories about her, but Granny is actually my Mummy, who my daughter – The Chimpton – calls Granny, which kind of makes sense. However, calling her Granny has kind of stuck and now we all refer to her as Granny. Great Uncle Bimbo, The Bears, and even I call her Granny even though The Chimpton is the only one who should actually be calling her Granny. I hope that makes sense because I would hate to have to explain it all again.
If there is one thing we love here at Jammy Toast, it is an animal story with a happy ending. We love watching Supervet and other animal programmes as long as they have happy endings and we can all have a smile on our faces. Such was the case today when we heard about the story of Phoenix the kitten. Phoenix – dubbed the luckiest cat in Britain – is recovering after being rescued from a garden fire. The kitten had severe burns to her face and body after being spotted trapped under blazing rubble in Sunderland last month.
