Hello, my name is Bimbo. I am great uncle to all the bears, mostly because I am a very old bear because I was bought for The Bearkeeper by his Grandparents on the day that he was born. That means I am currently 54 years old. I can remember many things that have happened in my lifetime and these are the things I am going to write about on my occasional column. I will tell you of the things that happened not just to The Bearkeeper and me, but things I can remember from television, news or anything else I can think of.

Hello, my name is Bimbo. I am Great Uncle to all the bears even though I am not really a Renault Bear myself. It is a bit of an honorary title because I am a very old bear. In fact, I was bought for Davidd by his Grandparents on the day that he was born many, many, many years ago. I can remember most things that have happened in my lifetime and these are the things I write about in my column. I will tell you of things that happened not just to Davidd and me, but things I can remember from television, news or anything else that comes into my head

Hello, it is Bimbo here again. I know I have already written my column this month but I asked Davidd if I could write again today because of the death of Richard Briers. We were all sitting around chatting about him yesterday and some of the great comedies that were made back in the 1970s. They still make great comedy today like The Office, Dinner Ladies and Father Ted but they do not have the same appeal – or the audiences – that the classic shows from the 70s enjoyed. It maybe because we only had three channels to choose from in those days but I think it is more because they were shows designed for the whole family. There was something for everyone to laugh at.
