As everyone who reads Jammy Toast already knows, Elvis Presley is alive and well and leaves comments on our posts every so often. However, this week sees the fortieth anniversary of his death and so the national press is full of conspiracy theory stories asking did Elvis really leave the building in 1977. Ever since his death there have been dozens of theories about his lack of demise and rumours he simply went into hiding. Our friend Elvis doesn’t want people to know that he is still around but unfortunately the conspiracy theories refuse to die.
Good Afternoon everyone, this is Edward here. I hope you have all been enjoying the sun this afternoon for the first time this year and been thinking about me working hard. As most of you will already know, I have been working on restoring the old archive posts for your enjoyment. Well, here comes the really important news – they are nearly ready to be posted live here on Jammy Toast. That is nearly nine years’ worth of old posts.
Thanks to those of you who warned us yesterday of a security flaw in the WordPress blogging software that we use here on Jammy Toast. Fortunately, we are ahead of the game and keep our installation of WordPress up to date and so, hopefully, it is secure. However, others whose websites are not as well updated have been left open to attack and tens of thousands of sites have been defaced. One estimate suggests more than 1.5 million pages on blogs have been defaced. The security firm that found the vulnerability said some hackers were now trying to use it to take over sites rather than just spoil pages. WordPress has urged site owners to keep their software up to date and avoid falling victim.
Some of you may have noticed that we haven’t heard much from Edward lately. He hasn’t written anything for his column for some time and there has been nothing much new in the way of innovation around Jammy Toast. “Has he left home?” I was asked last night. Well, to put everyone out of their misery, he has started wading through all our old posts going back to 2006 when we first started a blog off with a view to starting up an archive of old posts.
Everyone here at Jammy Toast didn’t know which way to turn for the better this morning, following a warning from government food scientists. The warning states that Jammy Toast can cause cancer if the bread is toasted for too long. Not just bread, but chips and potatoes should be cooked to a golden yellow or light brown colour, rather than dark brown, to reduce intake of a chemical which could cause cancer. Acrylamide is produced when starchy foods are roasted, fried or grilled for too long at high temperatures. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends carefully following cooking instructions and avoid browning. However, Cancer Research UK said the link was not proven in humans.
Here at Jammy Toast we are getting increasingly worried over the behaviour of Granny. As a few of you are aware, Granny has started getting befuddled lately. We know it is her age but it is getting to be a big concern, as she gets more confused and forgetful. Keys are becoming an increasing problem for her. She has lost car keys umpteen times because she keeps putting them down in unusual places. She then forgets where she leaves them. The last time was just after she had put the milk bottles out. She could not find the front door key anywhere but it was discovered the next morning by the milkman – she had put the key out with the milk!
Everyone here at Jammy Toast would like to wish all our friends and visitors a Very Merry Christmas. As you will notice we have our presents on display next to our logo and it is snowing while Christmas music plays – we are all very festive here at Jammy Toast. For those of you who are slightly annoyed by the Christmas music, if you look at the top right hand corner of the screen you will see a little fairy, click on that fairy to silence the music and bring peace and quiet back to Jammy Toast.
