I have been asked many times how I became so obsessed with Teddy Bears that I started the Birkenhead Bear Sanctuary and ended up buying Bears from all over the world.

It has been reported by BBC News that BT have admitted it sent the personal details of people suspected of downloading copyright music and films to an outside firm potentially against the provisions of the data protection act. According to its news report, more than 500 customers had their details forwarded to the outside firm called ACS:Law. Now, following a lapse in security, those details have mistakenly been posted on the internet by the firm.
Most of the artwork used on The Bear’s Blog was prepared using a program called Photoshop.
