This polar bear would have impressed the Dancing On Ice judges with his slick moves – and he didn’t even need the skates. The cute guy balanced on one leg and waved a paw in the air, before being joined for a twirl by another younger bear. The images were captured by wildlife photographer Steven Kazlowski, 44, on Bernard Spit, a barrier island along the eastern Alaskan arctic coast. He said; “Polar bears always amaze me. When they actually do things of their own accord to make for a better picture, it’s all the more amazing. A big part of a young polar bear’s life is to play – they appear to enjoy it as much as people do.”

We haven‘t heard anything from Eddie for a little while and so I have had words and he has promised with something special coming up shortly. You see, Eddie is being spoilt at the moment by being taken down to London to see the Harry Potter Exhibition. Heaven knows that he will be getting up to but I would make a guess that he will be riding on Harry’s broomstick before long. People (and bears) the world-over have been enchanted by the Harry Potter films for over a decade and Eddie is one of his biggest followers having read all the books and watched all the films.

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

Things are getting tense here at Jammy Toast as the bears get ready to watch tonight’s Merseyside Derby. The game is being shown live on BT Sport and we will all be sitting around shouting for our favourite team. Although most of the bears are Tranmere supporters there is nothing we like more than settling down to an exciting game of football and they don’t come much more thrilling than the Merseyside Derby. What makes it even more exciting this year is that both the teams are playing so well on the fringes of the top four Premier League places.

When I was sixteen I wanted to become an artist. I loved art and wanted nothing more than to attend the Birkenhead School of Art which was located in Park Road North opposite to the entrance to Birkenhead Park. It was, and still is, a lovely building which was given to Birkenhead, like so many other things, by John Laird. It was the first public school of art outside London. The school opened on 27th September 1871 and was closed in 1979 when it merged with the Birkenhead College of Technology, formerly situated on Borough Road. The building on Park Road North is presently in use as the John Laird Centre.

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
