25th December 2007
Christmas greetings to all
that are celebrating it. Debra thinks it's all humbug but
I won't that impead on my enjoyment with my family as we celebrate.
Have fun everyone, I will
let you know how we got on later.
There is a 20th problem now
on the problem page
10th December 2007
Sorry for my neglect of the
website of late, I have been busy helping Debra write her
book about her travels with me.
My two kids have been pestering
me with requests for presents for Christmas, any of you with
kids will know what I am going through.
My Son Bearnado is playing
baby Jesus in his school's nativity play. Teasac will be the
narator; Tea and I are very proud parents.
Anyway, I must crack the whip
and get Debra back to writing.
Bye all x x x
22nd November 2007
I have been getting a few
emails, and Debra has been asked of my whereabouts. Debra
has been seen in Borehamwood without me!
need to worry, I am still alive (well in a teddy bear sense
anyway). It is just that I am falling apart and need to stay
home an have a break rather than go out in the elements.
much has happned to tell of, but any of you that have teddy
bears and you do not know their birthday - then on the 28th
this month is the International Birthday of Teddy Bears. It
will be 105 years on that day since the first teddy bear,
so any teddies who do not know their birthday can celebrate
it on that day. Maybe someof you will email photos of your
Me and my brother Choc-Ice
about to go trick or treating
31st October 2007
It's that time of year when
scary creatures and people make their prescence known and
pumpkins are mutilated by a having a face carved into them
and having candles put inside. However, the origin of halloween
has stem from a pagan festival called Samhain but seeing as
I am going to be too busy Trick or Treating, I will just post
link about it.

On seeing lots of people with
balloon animals in the village, we hunted out the source.
Alerted by the sight of a yellow and green balloon archway
into a new shop in the boulevard 'Pets At Home' we went in
to go get a teddy bear balloon made for me and to see if they
had any cute animals in there. There were hampsters, rabbits,
fish and just about every dog in Borehamwood on a dogs shopping
spree with thier owners. The nice balloon man couldn't make
me a teddy bear but made me a cat instead.
Anyone buying a pet, remember
it is for life and treat them nice. Don't forget the smaller
petshop on Shenley road though for your pet toys and accessories.
11th October 2007
I have been a busy teddy bear
the last few days and so forgot to update my Bearsac
Meets Public page with Peter and Mercy who we met at Disability
Capital on Monday. Hello to you both, and good speech Peter.
Yes, accessible tube trains
will be coming on the Victoria Line. Mind you, not much point
if the stations are not accessible!
For anyone I have told in
the last few days there was a video Caaled Bearsac and The
Balloon on Google Videos, that could not find it, I am sorry;
silly Debra forgot to upload it. It is there now, so look
for Bearsac and The Balloon video/audio
4th October 2007
Debra and I have made new
slideshow in the gallery of our
interview on Three Counties Radio. The sound is quite bad
for the interview though as Debra could only record it via
the lap-top's speaker and tiny on-board mic. It took Debra
over 7 hours non-stop to capture, and edit the video/slideshow
and it is only about 11 minuets long. The of course there
is the uploading time.
3rd October 2007
Me and Debra were interviewed
by Katherine Boyle and Roberto Perrone of Three
Counties Radio. 103.8fm. (frequencies varie depending
on your location) It was aired today at about 6.15am.
We had a nice time in the
studio and meeting Katherine and Roberto. See them in my Bearsac
Meets Celebrities page. Thanks to you both.
Silly Debra forgot to mention
that she is writing a book about her travels with me, so pop
back to my bit of cyberspace folks to find when it is ready;
this might be about half way through next year.
30th September 2007
My son Bearnardo fell in the
duck pond this morning and I had to rescue him. Just as I
was dragging him to the edge of the bank I got attacked by
a demented duck and now have a broken paw, poor me. Bearnardo
was fine and just sat there laughing at me, making no attempt
to scare off the duck; that's the last time I take him to
feed those pesky water birds.
There are links to more short
audio visual productions made over the last couple of days
you can see them by clicking here.
24th September 2007
I have been busy the last
few days being a movie star and editor. There are so far 5
productions featuring either me or my friends. The permanent
link will be from the gallery but for now you can can see
them by clicking here.
These are our first attempt
and we have no instructions for the rather rubbish Windows
14th September 2007
I would like to ask everyone
to send healing thoughts to my daughter Teasac. She broke
both her arms when she fell off the bookshelf. She was very
brave not even crying. She is however in a lot of pain and
has to have her little brother Bearnardo run around doing
things for her. Things
are fine other than this.
Wishing everyone a wonderful
2nd September 2007
We had a busy day at Hugglets
Teddy Bear Festival in Kennsington today; we met lots of humans
and teddy bears. Big hello to Pat, Maria, Mariam who we met
in the queue and to Amanda of Hairy
Hugs (my Myspace friend);
you are all in my Bearsac
Meets Public page.
Debra - who has Asperger's
syndrome was very overloaded after all the sensory information
to take in at the fair, the array of colours of teddies, the
dustiness of the old ones and all the movement and noise of
the crowd;. She was sneezing and scatching her nose most of
the time in there, we think she might be allergic to mohair
- was was in bed by 5.30pm.
Debra had not intended to
buy a teddy bear, just to promote my website a bit and look
for information. However, she couldn't resist the teddy bear
above which we have named Mortimer.
Taking a break from meeting
people at Liberty
in Trafalgar Square
I had a groovy day in Trafalgar
Square today at
Liberty - London's Disability Rights Festival. We were there
in connection to Debra's job but she only needed to work for
2 hours so we boogied away in the music area, meeting lots
of people who have joined others on my Bearsac
Meets Public page. Hello to everyone we met today.
Liberty is a free festival
of music, arts and dance; many of the performers are disabled.
Everyone is welcome at this annual event held since 2003.
Liberty's fifth birthday
event hosted a programme of: street arts, comedy and cabaret,
visual arts and film, aerial and circus, carnival, children's
arts, music and dance stalls and displays. Look out for it
30th August 2007
I had a top day today. I met
more celebrities from Eastenders and was a real lucky teddy
to have been taken onto the set and photogrpahed by a very,
very nice person there. Thank you from my furry heart; I have
a present for you that we will try get to you tomorrow to
say thank you; we really appreciated your time today.
See who I met today on the
Celebrities page and see photos of me in and around Albert
Square on my new addition to the website, my Eastenders
Too far-gone to choose
I am now into double figures;
I was 10 yesterday. I had a bit of a party and it had me out
flat for the best part of today, I'm still a bit groggy.
Well the summer honored me
with good weather yesterday so I partied on chilled Pimms
and then got less discerning as the day progressed into early
hours of this morning. It was a nightmare tidying up this
afternoon, Debra was not happy about the mess, but the recycling
bins will be happy.
Thanks to those that emailed
me birthday greetings.
for the emails wishing my wrist better, it still hurts but
not as much.
is just a quick reminder that it is my 10th birthday on Sunday
26th August, so I will be expecting lots of birthday emails.
me, I sprained my wrist during ice hockey practice this morning;
how will the team do without me, we may even get relegated
if I'm out too long. I need lots of positive energy projected
to me in thought, so think me better.
son Bearnardo is leaning to fish with my wife Tea but he nearly
got dragged into the water when he caught a giant water snail
too big for him too reel in; he is OK though, just a little
a better note my daughter Teasac won a rock climbing contest
and is on target to be the first teddy under 6 inces to be
champion of the world in rock climbing.
Today I met an enormouse dog
in Borehamwood station called Buster. He and his owne Nick
are in the Bearsac
Meets Public page.
I would like to say thank
you to Vicky for dropping me and Debra back home fromt the
Green Dragon; also a a big hello to eveyone in there.
Debra had a meeting in Hitchen
to attend this morning. We spent the afternoon roaming around
the pretty market town afterwards. A big hello to everyone
we met today, especially the ones in the Bearsac
Meets Public page. There are photos of me in Hitchin on
UK page in the travel centre.
Anyone that lives in Hitchen
and hasn't tried it, or anyone visiting, give 'Chilli Bannana'
a try for yummy Cibatta sandwiches. I shared Debra's yummy
one - 'Conan The Vegetarian' (with sweet chilli replacing
the mayonnaise) - sitting by the duck pond by the church;
it was a pleasure to have some sun for a change.
the long lunch-time queue amid an array of other options was
because of the excellent choice of sandwiches and on-first-name-terms
with customers service of the friendly effiecient staff.
out my smart casual look
I need now is some sun
What do you recon to my new
clothes; I was given them by a lovely lady called Melony,
from Preston. Thanks again if you read this.
I agrivated an old ankle injury
last night playing hockey, so if you see me about give me
a kiss to make it better.
Lets all pledge to make the
most of this horrid summer we are having; I am going to wear
my new red summer gear today in defiance to the bad weather.
I won't be beaten!
This morning I met Jimmy,
a cute little 7 month old Chihuahua that gets carried in a
handbag when travelling on trains. He was off with his owner
to meet his friend Bambi. Jimmy has clothes like I do but
he was not wearing any today. There is a photo of my with
Jimmy on my
Guess who this is
I was in Camden Town this
morning and bumped into this person being filmed for a well
known TV program. I'm not sure if he counts as a celebrity
or not but the test might be in if he can be recognised. No
prices for guessing correctly though!
Me and First Capital Connect customers
taking direct action
had had enough this evening on this second day of severe delays
on First Capital Connect trains due to signal failure. After
about 20 minuets wait at West Hampstead Thameslink station
we were asked to disembark as the train was now terminating
in order to thin out the string of trains caught up in the
man in a pink T-shirt (that's his shoulder in the bottom right
hand corner of the photo) asserted that we should have stayed
on the train. Many people made alternative arrangements, no
doubt taking them a long time to get home. However, when
another train pulled in and finally opened its doors, some
time after the one that we got off, we all piled into it.
An announcement to disembark as the train was terminated resulted
in a number of human's and one teddy bear (me) staying put
in protest. The driver did his utmost to convince us to get
off. Some did of course SCABS! but enough of us stayed on
in protest so that there was no choice but for First Capital
Connect to continue the journey.
So people, if you find yourselves
in this situation STAY ON THE TRAIN.
me with newlyweds Olcay
was attended the wedding of Debra's boss Andrew and colleauge
Olcay this morning, please tost the happy couple. I am off
to the reception soon.
and all Debra's other teddies just took part with other teddies
in the teddy bear tug of war competition. It was boy teddies
against girls. I am shamed to say that the girls won. However,
I at least got to have a few sips of their champagne.
is a 19th problem on the Teddy Bear
I got injured falling out of a barrel full of jelly babies.
I was rather over excited as it was the first time this year
I have had the time to partake in my hobby or crushing jelly
babies to make Jelly Baby Wine. I am OK though, it's just
a swollen ankle.
is my owner, Debra that was having the harder time yesterday,
or at least in the morning. For anyone that was on the train
near her yesterday morning that comes on this website and
might see this, I can let you know she was fine. She was having
bad sensory overload experience. She has Asperger's
syndrome. Part of this, for her, is having sensory
overload issues. She has been very stressed out for the
last few days and this has resulted in her sensory overload
hitting high volume. The odd behavior (yes, I know she is
pretty odd anyway) was her trying to defend her senses from
the smells and sounds she was being extremely overwhelmed
by. I got her safely to the Body Shop in Euston Station where
she bought some lavender essential oil which she sniffs or
puts on me so she can smell me and this overrides the overload
of unwanted smells and also cuts down on the overload of sounds
and visual overload and calms her down.
When she got to the office and was being further overloaded
by the sound of the trains outside
she got under her desk; this being in a confined space out
of the light helps too. Her employers are great and found
her a place where she could sit more comfortably in another
organisations office that is on the other side of the building,
away from the train-lines. She got behind 4 closely spaced
partition boards that were closing off a couple of wheelchairs
and sat there for about 1/2 an hour. The organisation whose
office it was even turned the lights off over that part of
the room for her whilst she sat there recovering.
Debra or me talking loudly over the general noise of noisy
(to her) environment helps a bit too; as does wearing earplugs,
which you might see her do sometimes, like on the tube or
in the supermarket.
want to wish Debra, my owner,
a very happy 40th birthday today, let her life begin!
The shop has reopen but stocks

back from my latest travels, early hours of Wednesday. I havel
updated the Bearsac
Meets Public page. The travel page will hopefully be updated
in the next week or so. I went to Estonia, Latvia. Russian,
Mongolia and China and spent 4 days on the Trans-Mongolian
Hello to everyone I met in
the last 3 weeks.
Bearnardo makes the family
bigger by one
(L - R Bearnardo, me, Teasac, Tea.)
am very pleased to announce that Tea and I have a new child,
and our first son. Teasac, of course, has a baby brother and
first sibling; we are all very happy teddy bears.
a quickie to let fans of my teddy bear problem page know there
is an 18th problem.
hi to all I met today on the underground.
Spruced up in my kilt and sporran
a bad day today was for my old mate Ted Macbear; he was meant
to have a civil ceremony today in what would have been the
first gay marriage of teddy bears. Unfortunately he was jilted
by Edward MacTed. I was his best bear and bought the new outfit
above especially from Build
-a-bear in Hamley's toy store. Hello to the two lovely
ladies that work in the shop.
the bad luck of Ted, I thought I would at least let you all
see how spruce I look in my kilt and sporran.
Me,my beautiful wife Tea and
a bottle of Valentines bubbly
a romantic teddy bear I am; I made a romantic dinner for the
wifey, and got Alan to play waiter and baby sitter to our
daughter. The only problem was that somehow Debra and Alan
got to drink the bubbly, and Tea and I just got the glasses
held under where our mouths would be if we had them and had
to humour Debra's making yum yum yum yum sound effects as
though it was us sampling the delights ourselves!
scored the winning goal in the final of the Teddy Bear Hockey
League today, it was part of a hat-trick of goals for me and
a hatrick of cup wins for my team.
to the people I waved at and gave my website address to today
on the tube. I can normally speak but my owner and medium
of communication (Debra)
has had Laryngitis for the last few days, so I have not been
able to use her voice-box to speak myself. I know this may
come as relief to some people, but no-one can be as relieved
as me not to hear Debra go on.
Debra had to go to Colchester
to give a speech about not curing Autism for a debate. We
got to take my photo at a couple of the landmarks of this
oldest town in England. see my UK page
On the way home I met Mike
who is on my Bearsac
Meets Public page.
Even Debra got to meet Leo
Sayer, not just myself
I was a busy bear today, but
I still got time to meet Film Director, Ken Russell and
singer Leo Sayer tonight after Celebrity Big Brother. Ken
kissed me and everything, and Leo's hair is really cool.
See them on my Bearsac
Meets Celebrities page.
Whoever emailed me in the
last few days, that I have not replied to, could you re-email
me, especially if you have ordered a T-Shirt. Debra just deleted
the emails in her spam folder and just noticed that a possible
non-spam email was filtered as spam and got deleted.
Debra dragged me out in that
awful gale today, even though I am still ill. I have another
person on my Bearsac
Meets Public page, hi Kwame.
I have been a little ill with
Teddyitus today but my daughter Teasac has been looking after
me making me hot jellybaby juice and lemon; she is maturing
fast but not growing, just like all the other teddies. It
will be her 3rd birthday in March. I'm a very proud daddy
I hope to get some get well
The shop is up and running
again, so you can buy my T-shirt. There
is also a link to a great place if you are looing for a free
with free gift like 17 inch LCD TV or mobile with a free Ipod
video or Xbox 360.
Today I won the Teddy Bear
Of The Year 2006 Award; I am a very happy proud teddy bear.
As a prize I have won a years supply of honey, yummy.
I met a lovely lady and gent
today at Green Park Station, they are on the Bearsac
Meets Public page, hi folks.
New Year, hope you have not overdone it like me and all
the other teddies.
have been busy over the Christmas period reconstructing
the website, with a little help from Debra and Alan. I found
time though to spend quality time with Tea and Teasac.
you to everyone that emailed me Christmas greetings.
to the reconsruction of the website you may need to refresh
your browser on some pages and resave some pages that you
may have saved to favorites, as some files have been renamed.
There are still a few minor adjustments to be made, but
email me if you are having difficulty.
