With only two days to go until the launch of the brand new Jammy Toast Site; instead of looking forward we have been looking backwards. Backwards over the lifetime of this blog and the journey we have taken to get us to this position. It has not been an easy ride with many problems we have had to overcome. Problems not just caused by hosts and their equipment but also from us maybe asking too much from simple hosting plans.

If you grew up watching the Tarzan films starring Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O’Sullivan you will be saddened to hear of the death of their chimpanzee companion Cheetah. The Chimp who apparently starred in the Tarzan films in the 1930s has died at the age of 80, according to the sanctuary where he lived.

We do have to wonder just what the world is coming to following this latest festive season. If you pick the papers up today you can read all about how two people were stabbed yesterday in the Boxing Day Sales. What appears to be no more than a result of hustle and bustle at the sales has resulted in one man being knifed outside a Foot Locker store in Oxford Street. As if that wasn’t bad enough, a second stabbing happen just a few hours later further along the same street.

We didn’t get the chance to let everyone know prior to the festive season started in earnest but we managed to rescue the Bear we told you about on Christmas Eve. The little guy has made himself at home over Christmas and is currently sitting here watching The Producers on Channel 5 – another telly addict in the making. There was some concern that there was a problem with his nose but this has proven to be groundless. There is nothing wrong with his nose it was just a little fur that was obscuring his nose on his eBay picture.

Back in September I told you of the day when Granny left her car outside Sainsbury’s while she went into the store to do some shopping. Nothing wrong with that except Granny not only left the keys in the car but she also left the engine running while she spent her normal hour or two gossiping and catching up on the latest coming and goings at Sainsbury’s.
