I aint a fan of the wurd 'nice' actually. I finks it do be a rather empty wurd. It is the wurd wot peepel use wen they wants to pretend they likes sumfing or they is happy. In fact I fink wot it is a pretend wurd, comes to finks of it. It is a wurd peepel oftin uses wen they dunt wants to tel the trooth or wen they cant be bovvered or intresstid enuff to fink of annuver reel wurd.

Nice is sumware between ok and boring. Nice is neithur luvly nor horrid. Nice is wot peepel say abowt sumwone they aint reely got to know - sumwone they fink ov as pleasunt and harmless and wot wudint make them hav to fink hard or do anyfing difficult but jus let them carry on doing wot they does and finking wot they finks wivowt eva challenging them. Nice is comfortable and safe and lazy and not reely living.

I fink we shud consines 'nice' to the bin and finds uvver wurds to use.

Wot is more I fink peepel shud stops being nice and starts reely living. Insted of always trying to pleese peepel and always pretending to be sumwone wot they aint, peepel needs to be themselves and lives ther lives and not wurry awl the time wot peepel is finking and saying cos life aint so very long and wen it is over they dunt wants to wish wot they dun it diffrint.

I says dunt be nice; be kind, funny, naughty, loving. Takes risks and laughs a lot. Dunt lives in a prison of being frited wot peepel will says or wot will happen but trys life out and if it goes a bit wrong you can awlways says sorry and hav annuver goes.

I fink too many peepel spends ther lives doing wot they fink they shud insted of wot they wishes they cud and in the end they is gonna be dissipointed and sad.

I is gonna raze me cup ov hot choklit and says a toasts to awl of you wot is brave enuff to takes the challenge and says 'no mor mistur and missus nice guys'.

Me hollyday in Germany

I dun vizit Germany on a special vizit. Owr Church is linked wiv a Church in Germany and we dun go and stay wiv peepel ther and they dun took us owt on trips and it wos wikid!

I have put sum fotos on flickr

We dun goed to Dresden for one day and that wos very speshul cos one ov the men do rememba wot it looked like aftur it dun get bombed. He wos very sad. They fink wot 40,000 peepel dun die in a cuppul ov days and ther wos so meny bodies wot they dun hav to burns them in a big fire in the town square. That wos a very sad fing to heer.

Wen the peepel from Germany dun vizit us a cuppul ov yeers ago, they dun vizit Coventry cos they dun want to heer abowt the story and vizit the city wot wos bombed like wot Dresden wos.

They dun take us awl to a very nice tradishunal restawrant for dinnur wot wos luvlee!

Aint it sad how peepel do hav terribul wars? We is awl such good frends and we is very sad to fink ov the horrid war wot dun so much hurt!

I fink it is reely importint to make as meny frends as possibul in uvver cowntrees cos then, wen the leeders do trys to start wars we can stands togevva to say no.

This fing wiv Skotland and the bommers.

I dun bin lissning to the news on the radio abowt the man they dun releese from the Skottish Prisun. The one wot wos conviktid ov that awfuls bomming on the plane sum yeers ago. I dun lissen very carefuls to wot Kennee Mcaskgil dun sed in his speech and I fink wot he dun sed sum reely importint fings but most peepel dunt seems to be finking abowt those fings.

I undeestands wot sum peepel is very upsets and wantid the man to be punisht rite up til he dies and wot the peepel who lost ther loved ones is very sads and sum ov them is angry. That awl makes sense but to me littul bear brain that is a bit seprates from sum ov the uvver fings Kennee dun tawlk abowt. I hopes wot he dunt minds me callin him Kennee!

You sees it is like this for me; and I nose wot this is jus me pursinal point ov view; I fink it is reely importint for peepel to be abul to shows compassion evin in the most diffikult situashuns. Compassion is one ov the fings that makes humin beens diffrint from awl the rest ov the animals. And the wurse the situashun you is in, the mor it shows wevver you is abul to shows compassion. Enyone can shows compassion to sumone nice wot dunt hurt them but it takes very speshul peepel to shows compassion to horribul, nasty, cruel or badly broken peepel. I nose it aint easy but it is importint to lurns - and ov cors not to beets yorselv up if you dunt awlways manages!

Showing compassion aint jus for the sake of the pursin you is doing it to; it is for you as wel. It do be horribul to carries arownd awl that angur and hatrid and stuff insides you and it can makes you reely ill. A very wise Grandfathur in a North Amerikan Tribe dun sed wot hating sumone is like drinking poison and eggspekting yor enemy to die!

Wot is importint abowt the justis sistum in Skotland is wot it do hav space for compassion. I dun look a bit at the Amerikan sistum and they dunt seems to hav eny space for compassion at awl. It is mostly abowt punishmunt. So praps that is why ther politishuns dunt undeestands why Kennee dun wot he dun.

The uvver fing is this; it aint Kennees problum wot Libeeyah dunt behaves very wel and sensitivly wen the man dun get home. That is Libeeyahs problim. They has to takes responsibility for wot they does. Me Tai Chi mastur dun sed wot a very wise Chineese mastur dun sed wot if yor nayburs howse do hav smoke coming owt ov the chimnee and you can heer ther dogs barking, they is ok - so leev them alone! I fink sumtimes humin beens do want to sorts owt uvver peepels lives and that meens wot they aint takin enuff time on ther own lives. Ther is a funny story abowt Jeesus - ware he do says to peepel wot they gets too bizzy finking abowt the spek ov dust in ther nayburs eye wile they do hav a HUGE pole sticking owt ov ther own eye. Hmmmmm!

The uvver fing wot Kennee dun point owt is wot the man wiv the long name aint getting orf skot free (so to speeks!) cos he is very sick and he is gonna dies very soon. Whoeva his God is, I finks wen he gets ther, he is gonna hav to ansur a lot ov questions and who nose - maybe he wil gets sent back to make up for woteva he dun. That goes for awl the uvvers wot didint gets sent to prisun for that crime as wel.

Come to fink ov do be troo for evryone..............does bears go to the same hevin as humins I wunder................

Foto: me wiv me frend Ruth praktising Tai Chi!

I dun bin finking abowt bodies. It is becos I dun spent a week doing Tai Chi and that dun make me fink abowt me body and evryones bodies.

I dun becomes aware wot most ov the time peepel do behave like ther bodies aint importint. That seems very strange cos wivowt a body you cant livs in this wurld! But so meny peepel do be horribul to ther bodies and eggspekt too much from them wivowt ever giving them wot they needs.

Ther is lots ov eggsampuls I can giv and I wil starts wiv eating. If we reely care abowt owr bodies we eats enuff food and good food to helps it wurk. So wen I sees peepel eating crap food awl the time I nose wot they dunt luvs ther bodies. Wen I sees peepel not eating enuff food and trying to make ther body like a skeletun I nose they dunt luvs ther bodies.

Eggsersize is annuver fing. If you dunt allows yor body to gets enuff eggsersize it wil get poorly. If you makes it do eggsersizis wot stranes it it wil get poorly. We has to do the rite kinds ov eggsersize and keeps it fit in the rite way so that it can wurk proplee wivowt having to deel wiv eny stranes and stressis.

Peepel dunt seems to listen to ther bodies - so the bodies hav to showt at them! If you spends awl yor time sitting down the body and particularlee the back wil start to tawlk to you and say 'I aint comftable and I needs to stand up' but if you dunt listen, then it wil hav to showt 'I is hurting!' and if you dunt listen to that it wil givs up wurking proplee and makes you listen!
That is wot I dun seed happin to peepel.

Ther is sumfing else as wel. Yor body can teech yor mind fings. If you practisis wiv yor body to get owt ov the way wen sumone is gonna punch you, yor mind lurns that it can step owt ov the way wen sumone is dumping ther emotional crap on you as wel. If you lurns how to releese tension in yor body, you lurns how to not holds on to tension in yor mind.

I fink the way we dun divide up the mind and body and spirit is false and wot it is awl one pursin and needs to wurk togevva. So I is gonna looks aftur me body proplee from now on!

As a teddy bear I gets to watch humin beens a lot. Most humin beens dunt nose wot I is reel and alive, so they does awl sorts of fings in frunt ov me wot they probably wudint if they reelized wot I can sees and heers them! Ov corse my own humin been nose wot I is reel!

Wen I is watching humin beens I notices wot they says and does - like wen me humin leevs the room to makes cofee or goes to the loo I can sees wot the guests get up to; wich ones hav a nose arownd wile she is gon and wich ones pick ther noses and so on. It is kwite funny reely and me and me humin do laff abowt it wen they is gon.

But I dun reelize sumfing els wen I watch humin beens and that is that they awl finks a bit diffrently. I dunt meens wot I reeds ther fowts becos that wud be rood. I is telepafik but I wudint does it wivowt purmishun! No wot I meen is that I notice by wot peepel does and says how they is finking. Sumtimes this is whether they finks befor they speeks or does fings or wether they finks afturwurds. This is pritty importint cos if you finks befor, you can saves yorself and uvver peepel kwite a lot ov possibul problims!

Awlso, I notice wot sum peepel finks mostly only abowt themselvs - like wot they is so wurreed abowt wether they is good enuff or wether peepel likes them that they dunt hav eny time or space in ther hed to actuallee fink abowt the uvver peepel! These peepel awlways seems nervus and dunt sits still so much and they tends to be eggspekting fings to goes rong and cos they is eggspekting it, genrally they does go rong cos they makes them go rong!

Then ther is peepel wot only seems to fink abowt themselvs and ther familee and frends and nowone else. Like nowone else is importint. These peepel shows ther finking in the way they behaves in publik - so it is awlrite to be very noizy on a train, for eggsampul, and eggspekt evryone to put up wiv it. Or it is awlrite to say nasty fings abowt peepel who aint in ther groop. Or evin to says horrid fings abowt peepel they dunt neva meet rite in frunt ov them. Sum ov these peepel seem to eggspekt evryone to run arownd and serves the needs ov them and ther frends and it dunt ocurs to them wot the uvver peepel hav fowts and feelings and rites! These peepel tends to be nervus and unhappy on ther own cos they only feels they is importint and safe in ther own groop. And besides, wen they is on ther own, they is probably wundring wot ther 'frends' is saying abowt them!

Then ther are sum peepel who finks they aint wurf nothing so they trys not to fink abowt ther own selvs and jus run rownd trying to say 'yes' and plees evryone else and gettin no respekt wotsoeva! They awlways looks unhappy cos they aint lurnt wot you has to lurn to loves yorselv, fink abowt yor needs and look aftur yorselv befor you is gonna be able to loves and looks aftur enyone else! It is very diffikult to love sumwone wot behaves like a doormat or is too bizzy telling you wot they aint wurf loving.

Then ther is the groop wot dun lurn to fink wot they is awlrite and good peepel and doing ther best and do be lovable jus as they are. This groop can stop finking abowt - or not finking abowt - themselvs or ther frends awl the time and forgets to wurry. They can fink abowt uvver peepel wivowt wurrying wether they is liked or loved by them. They can just fink abowt the uvver peepel as lovable and does fings for them becos they wants to. They dun awlso lurn to say 'yes' wen it is rite and 'no' wen it is rite. And becos they aint frited by silence in convursation, they givs themselvs time to fink befor they speeks.

See I dun lurn wot finking is very importint indeed to humin beens and it do probablee takes a hole lifetime to lurn the best way to does it.

I dun get a package throo the post today. It wos very nice to gets it but it wernt a surprise cos I dun ordur sumfing over the internet. Inside the box wos me book wot I dun ordurd and I wos very pleesed wiv it. Wen I dun finish lookin at me new book I dun look at the box and I dun wunder wot to do wiv it cos I didint want to throws it away cos that wud be wastefuls.

Now sum boxes aint good and they do need to be throwed away. I nose wot sum peepel hav boxes full ov junk and they gets depresst just looking at it! I nose uvver peepel hav boxes full of sad memries and they dunt nose wot to does with them or how to throws them owt. And I nose wot ther is sum peepel wot feels like they is being made to lives in boxes becos uvver peepel trys to tells them how to lives ther lives or cos they is afrade to be who they reely is and that is the saddest box of awl and do need to be broked up so the pursin can climes owt.

But me box is a nice box and I dun fink for kwite a wile abowt how to giv it a nice job to does. Finally I dun hav me idea!

I dun goes upstairs and find sum nice rapping paper and sissors and gloo and sum ribbon. I dun cut the paper and cover the box wiv it and stick it down wiv the gloo. Next I dun make a big bow owt of the ribbon and sticks it on the top of the box. Wen that wos dun, I dun get a big red pen and rites 'Bear Growls Happy Box' on the top and I dun draw a big smiley teddybear face! Then I dun put sum fings inside - letters and cards wot me frends dun sends me. Fotos ov sum luvlee hollydays and days owt and I dun print off the commints from me frends heer and on twittur and puts them inside as wel. Now weneva I is feeling a littel sad or lonely or the wevver is bad and I is indoors wen I wants to be owtdoors, I can fetch me box and look at the happy memries and rememba wot a lucky bear I is cos I has frends wot luvs me and I can injoys times from the past awl ova agen!

See boxes can be good sumtimes! So long as we is in charge of the boxes.

I fink it wos too cold for ice creem. Enyways it wos a nice lunch time and we dun hav a luvlee chat wile we dun eat owr food.

Afturwurds I dun start to fink abowt how luvlee it is to hav frends. Cos you choosis yor frends for yorself - you aint gived them like a familee is gived. And wot is evin nicer than choosin a frend is knowing wot a frend dun choose you! I do feel very special indeed wen I finks abowt my luvlee frends and reelize wot they likes me so much and wants to be me frend!

And havin lots of diffrint frends is intressting cos I do hav a frend I goes on me adventures wiv who is grate fun and very cleva and then I hav a frend I has cofee and cake wiv and we do tawlk and laff and relax togevva and then I hav a frend wot I goes swimmin wiv and we do injoy eggsersize togevva. And jus ocasionlee we do hav a party and awl ov them frends is togevva and it is diffrint agen.

I fink that each frend do bring sumfing special owt ov you and teech you sumfing diffrint abowt yorself. So having me special frends aint jus fun and making me happy but it makes me a better bear as wel.

So I is gonna says a toast as I drinks me hot choklit tonite - cheers and heer is to me frends!

And I dun feel the most importint bear in the gardin cos they dun trusts me to be ther wen they tawt ther babees abowt the feedurs.

Making Bred

Makin bred is a antidote to a bizzy life and a bizzy wurld! You see you cant rush makin bred. It do hav to happin awl in the rite time and it do takes its time! If you tries to make it hurry it comes owt awl hevvy and sour and too chewy! And it do giv you a upset tummy as wel!

Wen I makes bred it makes me realize wot them peeple in the olden days dun hav a better speed ov life. Shoor they dun hav it tuff and dun hav to wurks reely hard and fyzikul but they dun hav wot is reely importint as a prioritee and they didint get bogged down wiv awl the stuff we do.

I bet wot they wud be very sad to finks wot we do rushes arownd and get so stressed wen we do hav a easier life wiv awl owr mod cons and stuff and we dunt hav to do awl the washin by hand or cut the wood to makes a fire to cook on or heet the howse and awl that stuff. I bet they wud say wot we is mad cos we shud spend sum ov the time we hav injoyin owrselves insted ov jus bein bizzy and tired and not reely gettin enyware.

Thats wot I fink enyways.

Now I do hav to wates for me bred to cool down so I can eats it cos it is very bad for yor tummy if you eats the bred befor it cools down. I nose cos I dun it! See it do be teeching me to be mor patient as wel!
