Ididn’t get the chance to post any of my drawings here on Jammy Toast last month because there wasn’t enough days in the month, with Christmas etc. So I decided to push the boat out this month and do a few drawings for you all to look at. We love our films here at Jammy Toast so I thought I would try to draw some of our favourite actors. I hope you like them and, even more importantly, I hope you can tell who they are. See what you think…

At the risk of sending Razzi back into hiding under his bed, we thought today we would tell you all a story we have heard recently regarding a ghost. The story revolves around Green Lane Railway Station which opened in 1886 and since then there have been umpteen stories of ghosts being seen in and around the station. One foggy evening in the early 1960s, the station was the scene of one such terrifying manifestation. It took place on a cold December night when the station was deserted except for one person waiting impatiently for a train.

Hi everyone, this is Edward here to let you all know we have lost our Bearkeeper and Razzi. They should have been back in about five o’clock to do sort out tonight’s post but so far there is no sign of them – which is very unlike our Bearkeeper. So, while we wait for normal service to be resumed, I thought that best thing to do would be to have one of our infamous Open Nights or, as we like to call them, our “It’s Good To Talk” night’s. Whenever things are a little hectic around here we can think of no better way of having a little fun. In case you have been living down a hole for the last five years or you have not come across one before an Open Night is when literally anything goes. Confused? Okay, let me explain…

Razzi is a little bit of a scaredy-cat and is often found hiding under the bed or behind the sofa when something scares him. If a horror film is on the telly then the first sign of trouble is when Razzi starts to go a little pale. Then when the monster or scary villain is revealed Razzi is nowhere to be seen – he is in hiding again. Not all bears are brave and whereas most bears hide up a tree if they are scared, Razzi is scared of heights. In this series of posts, we take a look at some of the monsters and villains that have scared Razzi…

If you have been following the bears for a while, you will know that on the old blog we decided that because Sunday’s are always boring we would turn them into musical fun days. We have decided to continue this tradition here at Jammy Toast. Each Sunday we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We will often feature music that you may not have come across before or music that maybe you just missed. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find an artist, group or song you can add to your iPod…

Any Friend of The Bears is eligible to watch each week’s movie by applying in the usual way.

Bear’s Repressed Memories

Quite a few people popped online yesterday to welcome Pwllheli to his new home. While we were chatting, the subject came round to how the bear’s repress bad memories. This is where painful memories from their past are repressed by ‘motivated forgetting’. These memories are blocked out due to their painful or traumatic nature. It is a sad fact that many bears grow up loved by children who grow up and forget the teddy bear they once loved. In self-defence, the poor bears repress the happy memories to stop them from fretting for happier times. Many of our bears have been diagnosed as having Repressed Memory Syndrome (RMS) to block out such painful memories.
