Many moons ago, here on Jammy Toast, we used to make our own music videos. Many songs we wanted to feature on the blog didn’t have a video for us to “borrow”, so we resorted to making our own. So in 2009, we found a couple of Spanish bears who we rescued via eBay. Unfortunately when they arrived here at Jammy Toast they were a little homesick. Their names were – and still are for that matter – Enriquo and Enrique. The two are twins and so to celebrate their birthday, and to make them feel more at home, Egginanoo made them a special Spanish themed video. The video was for The Gypsy Kings song called “No Volvere”.
The Bears may soon be moving home. They have been on Blogger since they used to appear on The Queen’s Blog which started in June 2006 and moved to their own Blog here at Blogger in August 2007. We have really had a lot of fun with Blogger but now we are planning bigger and better things to do which don’t seem to be possible using the Blogger platform.
The Bears enjoy watching football, even though they are not great fans. They did have a laugh at Alex Furguson at the weekend after he said Manchester United were the better team following their 4-1 defeat to Liverpool. These kind of things sum up their attitude towards any sport, they don’t take it too seriously.
We got an email a little while back from a Bear Lover in Russia who has a Renault Bear called Edward. We have replied to the email to say “hello” and find out more about Edward but so far we have not received a reply. If you have a Renault Bear please come and say “hello” and tell us all about yourself and — of course — your bear.
The other day, in the post about Google spying on us all, we mentioned the name of Tim Berners-Lee. Now I have a strong feeling that most of you won’t know who he is or more importantly what he has done for us all. His full title is; Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee, OM, KBE, FRS, FREng, FRSA. Those letters after his name mean he holds an Order Of Merit (OM), is a Knight of the British Empire (KBE), he is a Member of the Royal Society (FRS), a member of the Royal Academy of Engineering and also a member of the Royal Society of Arts. He is an English computer scientist and MIT Professor. He was ranked Joint First in The Telegraph’s list of 100 Greatest Living Geniuses. He is the director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the founder of the World Wide Web Foundation and he is a senior researcher and holder of the 3Com Founders Chair at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.
Hi everyone it’s The Bears here. As you know, Thursday night is the night Davidd goes off to Fat Club to see if he has lost any weight. Each week Davidd goes to face the protential wrath of Majorie Dawes if he has not lost any weight. Tonight is the night we find out if he has managed to be good and avoid his usual feeding holes at McDonald’s, KFC and Subway.
As you know The Bears spend alot of time on the Internet, visiting sites and searching for things of interest to fill their days with. Razzi even uses the Internet to find his infamous Bear Porn. Edward uses the Internet to research topics of interest during his accademic studies while Egginanoo likes to look at famous art works using online Art Gallaries. This is just a small example of some of The Bears surfing habits.
Scruffy, The Bear who arrived at the Bear Sanctuary last week, has decided on a new name for himself. From this moment forth he would like to be known as Efron. Thanks are indeed due to Ashley who recommended the name to Efron. He did take his time deciding but after all, it is a big responsibility picking your own name.
