Hope you are having a good
Christmas, I was driven mad by the kids and wifey was on strike
this year so the cooking was down to me. We had roast salmon.
Not much else to tell you
really, just another day really.

Happy Chanukah to those celebrating
it. It was just a few years ago that Chanukah, Christmas and
Diwali fell almost at the same time. Diwali beat the 2 Cs
to the post by a number of this weeks this year though. However,
us teddy bears like to celebrate them all cultures festivities
together and so we send out thoughts for all.

Some of you Wooders might
have seen Debra and me being filmed in Borehamwood last Saturday
(7th) and wondered what it was about. Students from the Univeristy
of Westminster doing a documentary for their course. The documentary
is a mini profile of Debra and aims to show a personal account
of Debra's relationship with me and about her having Asperger's
We saw the near finished
documentary yesterday when we had paid a visit to the university
meeting some friendly students, who all thought me cool! I
liked the documentary but think it was too focused on Debra
and should have been more focused on me as I am cool and she
is just the nutter of Borehamwood!
In my last post I spoke of
going to a Nash the Slash gig. Well, a woman that was also
there emailed Debra and me to tell us that Nash has mentioned
us on his website www.nashtheslash.com/news/
Thanks Shirley-Ann and like you website, good links. www.nashtheslash.co.nr/
29th November 2008
I am very busy but am trying
to update the website. There will links to new videos in,
maybe later today or over the weekend. There are new people
on the Bearsac
Meets Public page.
There is another person on
my Bearsac Meets
Celebrities page. Last night Debra and I attened a gig
at the Purple Turtle near Monrningto Crescent station. It
was excellent. Young Things Don't Scream supported the amazing
Nash The Slash. YTDS came back on stage and did a couple of
Gary Numan tracks with Nash, who as usual, had his face covered
in bandages. I think he liked me a lot as he was trying to
lick me, as you will see in the photograph.
22nd November 2008
The new page we spoke of doing
a few days ago is now up. It is 'Politics' and is still being
worked on and bits will be added over time. So far it can
only be linked to from this here.
Me outside prior to entering
the Houses of Parliament
19th November 2008
Today we attended the Justice
For Palestinians Lobby in the Houses of Parliament as part
Jews For Justice For Palestinians.
I won't go into detail here
as we will make a new page on this website about it and maybe
a general political page that it will link from. The name
of the group we have become part of is self-explanatory but
see their website clicking the link above.
I met lots of nice humans:
Jews, Christians, Muslims and Palestinian Muslims and Jews;
some of us took part in a demo. Debra and I unfortuantly did
not get to see our MP to ask him to give his support to end
Israeli occupation of Palestine and other injustices linked
There was a bigger demo also
happening and we went to investigate that. It was asking the
British government to ask the Sri Lankan government for justice,
an independent state for Sri Lankan Tamils and the end to
war in Sri Lanka. For more information click

I am starting to get a chilly
willy now the cold is setting in and truth be known, maybe
it is me getting a little old. However, I have a new friend
that that is older than me. He wonders if he might be a cousin
to my brother Choc-Ice as they look quite similar and are
from the same era. Big'n Ted is the latest teddy bear on my
Guest Bear page; go say hello.

a Community workshop
4th October 2008
Any residents of William Sutton
Housing in Borehamwood missed a great time today at the resident's
conference if they weren't there. Being that I am a resident
as well as Debra, she took me along.
There was an excellent short
theatre production on the subject of diversity which looked
at ideas of it and challenged perceptions to it. An especially
good message was about how humans make assumptions on stereo-types
and how the judgements humans make are so often incorrect.
The theatre production company were Theatre and Ltd (based
in Huddersfield) www.theatreand.com
Also good was the workshop
on Developing a Community. I joined the humans in planning
a community based on housing, community amenities, accessibility
and budget. (of course it was not very realistic but it was
dead fun messing about with bits of fuzzy felt representing
buildings, landscapes and roads. A woman in her 60s had a
tantrum because she didn't like the idea that Debra dared
to express an idea as a team member. The silly sausage chucked
all the fuzzy felt over to Debra ranting on she was going
to leave. Debra simply agreed it might be a good idea for
the woman to leave if it was such a problem for her to have
other people take part. Thankfully she didn't leave but sat
at another table. It was reminiscent of a 5-year not wanting
to share the toys!
In the afternoon was the highlight
of the day for me. I joined in with African drumming, bashing
the drum with my paws and everything. Housing issues were
covered as well as were ways to get involved in related issues
as a resident.
A down side to the day was
the lack of respect demonstrated by some of the audience.
Debra pointed this out whilst the subject of stereotypes was
being aired. She said that young people are stereotyped as
being disrespectful yet it is older people in the audience
that are being disrespectful talking amongst themselves whilst
the speaker or people asking questions are trying to do so.
I don't know - the older generation of humans today. So much
for being positive role models! At least teddy bears don't
behave so badly!!
The venue was Oaklands College,
which was not accessible and there were no microphones during
the morning main session. Enough people complained, so hopefully
it will be taken on board for further events. I did get lots
of sweeties though!
The Royal Albert
Royal Albert Hall
25th August 2008
I met Simon Bates tonight
at The Royal Albert Hall after the concert I went to see with
Debra for Capital FM live. It was excellent. Simon
presented the night. The wonderful Royal Liverpool Philharmonic
Orchestra performed music of various composers, including
that of school children from Colwyn Bay who were in the audience.
There were two singers - Alfie Boe (Tenor) and Kate Royal
(Soprano); a Trumpeter - Alison Balsom, and my favorite, Clarinettist
- Emma Johnson. The person that did all the stuff with his
arms and stick with cork on the end was was Vasily Petrenko.
I was frightened by the banger fireworks during the 1812 Overture,
there were visual fireworks that shot around the gaff and
See me with Simon Bates on
Meets Celebrities page. The others were in a function
so we didn't wait to meet them.
Hello to everyone I met there
and during the rest of the day and evening.
For people asking about Debra's
book and when it will be out, we don't know exactly yet. It
might be about February next year. We should get some next
week as some will be sent out for book reviews. We are not
sure how things go until we get our marketing plan from the
publishers but we hope that there will be some available to
sell soon, before the public availability next year. - We
will let you know.
The book is about her travels
with me and the barriers of travel to her having Asperger's
If you want to be emailed
when the book is ready then email via email@example.com

26th August 2008
It was 11 years ago today
that my nutty owner clapped eyes on me in Belgium and bought
me. I have done more than the average bear in that time and
the signs of doing so are showing as bald patches. Still,
I stake it in my strife and bear it with dignitary. Hope you
all have a wonderful day on my bearthday and hope those of
you that had them, liked the sweets I shared on the train
and tube today in celebration of my special day.
Me on the Jenny Wren
19th August 2008
The organisation where Debra
works had a staff team building day. We went on the Jenny
Wren on the Regents Canal. On it I met another teddy bear,
he is called iava and is from Siberia. His owner Vlasta is
from Czech Republic - they were very nice and are featured
in my Meets
Public page, where there is a link to the Jenny Wren website.
What pleasant ride we had, so many people to wave at - a few
even waved back!

with them. We could not make live, the update to my site with
the photo. You can now see it in my Bearsac

We still have not date for
Debra's book about her travels with me - we hope to get our
manuscript back from teh publishers at the end of the week,
but they are taking longer than first considered. It still
takes a while from mutral aggreement until the book is avaiable
to the public as shops need 8 - 16 weeks to update their databases.
I really hope that it will be this year though; in time for
Christmas shopping will be brilliant.
The book will also touch on
the barriers of travel to her having Asperger's syndrome -
demonstrating the pros and cons.
31st July 2008
I was voted Teddy of the
tournament for the Teddy Bear Hockey Tournament this evening,
my family are very proud of me as are the team. We came second
but it was only because we had 2 players sent off.
There two more people in my
page. Hello Olivia and Marie. They are both transgenders (someone
born in the body of the wrong gender) and I am helping them
to raise awareness by being photographed with them and putting
on my site. It was too hot for their wigs though.
I would also like to raise
awareness of the harm that can be caused by the wonderful
pleasure of feeding the ducks and geese at ponds. If you have
ever wondered why some geese have their wings sticking out

I am rather upset by what
I found out today. I was walking up Brook Road in Borehamwood
when a man showed me a notice that had blown off wherever
it had been placed for the public to see. The notice was about
a teddy bear that had been taken from the railings where tributes
had been left for Tommy of Brook Road, who got killed in a
The family are very upset
that the teddy has been taken and request its return.
Just in case the person who
took it or someone that knows of the teddy's whereabouts comes
on this website, I appeal for you to take note.
If you took it, or know who
did, please make sure that it is returned. If you took it
for a child then please realise that that child will soon
grow out of it anyway and may not understand the importance
of the teddy to Tommy's family.
Your child may have it and
may have told you a friend gave it them. The teddy had a crucifix
but that is all we know of its description. Of course the
crucifix may have come off, so if your child has new teddy
that you don't know for sure how they got, then please try
to see if it had a crucifix.
I hope to see the teddy bear
back when I walk past Tommy's place.

does to me, why can't she leave me alone.
My wife and kids have gone
out for a teddy bears' picnic, I am too busy to join them
though as i have been have an important teddy bear committee
board meeting this afternoon. Anyway, I have not said anything
on here for a while, so thought I would quickly drop in a
big hello to you all.
Me outside Winnie the Pooh's
12th May 2008
What a day today. Debra dragged
me on a 13-mile trek to Alderham County Park via 100 Acre
Wood and beyond. No sign of Winnie the Pooh of his friends.
I played pooh sticks with Debra from Pooh Bridge, my stick
beating hers as hers got stuck. We strolled right around the
reservoir and played in the kids adventure playground. We
said hello to the smelly animals in the little farm; they
must have been pleased to see such a cool teddy bear as me
as they must get bored of all the humans looking at them.
Onward we walked to Letchmore
Heath and I drank Debra's Guinness in a pub's beer garden
whilst she photographed some flowers. We got attacked by so
many caterpillas who where doing bungi-jumps from trees and
everything. By the time we got home via Radlett and measured
out our route on Google Earth we had done just over 13 miles.
I am really glad that I just get carried. It was a little
uncomfortable for me though, what, with my fur and stuff.

I saw a clip of Eastenders
being filmed today between the characters Sean and his mum.
I can't tell you what was happening as it might give things
Robert Kazinsky, who plays
Sean, kindly spent time with the kids for autographs and photos
but chickened out at the idea of being photographed with me!
He said I'm a ratty looking bear and called me Roland Rat.
I think Sean was worried that I am far better looking than
he is, so didn't want to look ugly next to me!
If you read this Robert - Cluck, cluck, cluck!
We also met the Borehamwood
author of 'There's no Room for Jugglers in My Circus' Jason
Cook. He was happy to be photographed with me and is in

day as Gary Numan's too, 8th March. The last year has gone

full of truffles and our bellies full of the Jelly Babys we
took with us.

Elephant for sale in Borehamwood
16th January 2008
What a suprise when Debra
took me into the charity shop - Banardo's - in Shenley Road.
I wondered what an elephant was doing, sprawled out on the
floor many miles from his heard. He told me, as I sat on his
back that is is actually a toy elephant and is looking for
a home with humans. So if there are any humans that want to
give a home to a freindly cuddly toy elephant then take a
trip down the village and buy him for the bargain price of
£4.95. He is too big for Debra's tiny flat, but I'm
sure he'll fit in somewhere.

For the attention of the idiot
and fools like him.
A person from any group of
people can be a bigot - not just people from majority groups.
People from minority/marginlised groups like you can be bigoted
For the attention of anyone
We had an email from a person
that made bigoted remarks to Debra about having Asperger's
We replied and told them their
opinion was bigoted but was too unintelligent and of no consequence
to cause us offense. But I feel we should mention this incase
there are other idiots that think like this ignorant bigot.
He replied to our reply saying
that he cannot be a bigot as he is black and gay!
Are we missing something?
Maybe I'm a bigoted teddy bear, as I think humans are mad!
I recon a lot of both black
and gay people will agree with me that minority race and sexual
orientation does not rule out people being bigoted, wether
is it towards people because of brain wiring, race, sexual
orientation, physical condition, or anything else.

Well, here we are at the beginning
of yet another year, it seems like just a couple of months
ago that were were saying Happy New year to 2007. Maybe time
works differently for humans to teddy bears.
I had a quiet New Year's Eve
with Debra, Alan and the teddies, but was rasather hungover
this morning. Debra even took a break from writing her book,
well for a few hours anyway.
All you teddy bears out there
that are looking for a partner, don't forget I have a teddy
bear dating page off the woods/other link, and a teddy bear
problem page for teddies with problems.
I hope you all are going to
keep to any New Year resolutions you have made; I thought
that if I don't make any this year then I won't not keep it!
Wishing you all a happy and
sucessful new year. x x
