 Choose a Teddy Bear as your very own pet and companion.

How to Choose a Teddy Bear: 11 steps – wikiHow 
 Caring for a Teddy Bear is easy; grooming is easy, no feeding, no walking, no clean-up.

Steps

  1. Locate a store or shop that sells toys and stuffed animals. There are stores in the Mall that even allow you to pick your own bear, and stuff it yourself. For example, there is a place in some US cities called Lil Lovables Fluffable Factory where you create tiny teddies and can get them some clothes. And of course there's Build-A-Bear Workshop where you buy teddies or other stuffed animals and clothes for them.
  2. Choose the teddy that you think suits you best. You may want a male bear or a female bear. Select the bear that is just the right size and color for you.
  3. Name your bear. Name your bear something that suits its personality as you see it. If your bear is shy and not a talker, you could name him or her "Whisper" or "Tim" as in "Timid". If your bear is loud and outgoing, you could name him or her "Bubbles" or "Burst". You can also name your bear according to its appearance. If he or she is black, you could name him "Midnight", "Shadow", or "Ebony". If he or she is white, you might want to name him or her "Snow White" or "Ivory". You can also name your bear just by a feeling that they fit that name. You can name your bear whatever you want, just be sure to keep its gender in mind! If you are stuck, and your teddys a boy, you could name it Theodore. Why? Because many people named Theodore have the nickname Teddy. See?
  4. You can also use names that are for both male and female teddies, like Alex, or Casey. Or, if your animal is a monkey, you can spell it differently and it's name could be Monkie.
  5. Once you find a name for your teddy, it's time to tie a ribbon on it's neck. It's said that the day you tie a ribbon on the teddy bear is your teddy bear's birthday.
  6. Take your bear home and write information about your bear on a card or in a small notebook for safekeeping. This information will include the name you chose, the eye color, and the gender. Make sure you add your name as the person who adopted the bear. Also write down your bear's hobbies and interests.
  7. Make a small "birth certificate" to keep in the notebook or on the card you have started. (Hint: Your bear's birthday is the date you first tied the ribbon on him or her.)
  8. Introduce your new bear to all the other stuffed animals or dolls you might have. Introduce your new teddy to your family, too. Set aside a spot in your room, for the bear to sleep or sit when you are away from home.
  9. Play with and hug your teddy often. Your teddy will always be there for you, whether you're happy, or sad, or mad, or lonely. Tell all of your secrets to your teddy.
  10. Take your teddy shopping with you. You might want to take your teddy to school. (Be sure you get permission first.)
  11. Buy or make clothes for your teddy. Treat your teddy with love and caring and your teddy will give it all back to you.

WE ARE HEADING TO CLEAR CREEK METRO PARK

FRAMEDROAD

Frosty the Snowman Was a jolly happy soul With a corncob pipe and a button nose And two eyes made out of coal

FRAME1

Frosty the Snowman Is a fairytale they say He was made of snow But the children know How he came to life one day

FRAME2

There must have been some magic In that old silk hat they found For when they placed it on his head He began to dance around

FRAME3

Frosty the Snowman Was alive as he could be And the children say He could laugh and play Just the same as you and me

FRAME5

Frosty the Snowman Knew the sun was hot that day So he said let's run And we'll have some fun Now before I melt away

FRAMED6

Down to the village With a broomstick in his hand Running here and there all around the square Saying catch me if you can

FRAMED7

He led them down the streets of town Right to the traffic cop And he only paused a moment when He heard him holler stop

FRAMED8

Frosty the Snowman Had to hurry on his way But he waved goodbye Saying don't you cry I'll be back again some day

Thumpety thump thump Thumpety thump thump Look at Frosty go

Teddy Bears, Dr. Seuss,and Politics 4/21/2011

 

general Lee I would like for you to meet Theodor S. Geisel — better known by his pen name, Dr. Seuss 113px-Ted_Geisel_NYWTS_2_crop Please take a minute and check out the photos below. Can you tell which photo has nothing to do with Dr. Seuss???

83px-US_Navy_020301-N-9573A-002_Read_to_kids_national_campaign_aboard_CVN_73 120px-Jacob_Myers_in_Seussical_-_Cat_in_the_hat John_Kasich_clown Now that wasn’t so hard was it?

HAPPYBIRTHDAYLINDA Pooh knows it may not be Wednesday. He is just clowning around like someone else we know. LOL.. Pooh wants you to know “From there to here, from here to there, researchers find that Dr. Seuss is — in political, social, psychological and even business terms — everywhere.” General Lee finds this interesting; “Writing in the Political Research Quarterly in 1983, Timothy Cook contends that many of Dr. Seuss’ stories, like those of Wizard of Oz creator L. Frank Baum, “present a distinctly negative aspect of government and authority.” In such tales as Yertle the Turtle and The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, “Seuss shows political authority as potentially selfish and exploitative, thirsting for more power, heedless of the best interests of the community,” Cook asserts. “Both Baum and Seuss, by the conclusions of their stories, appear to argue that government should be limited in its scope.” READ THE WHOLE STORY CLICK

100_4835 Glad you could stop by AND SINCE TODAY IS WEDNESDAY BUT NOT THE 21ST,POOH SAYS TO PUBLISH EARLY. Oh,and thanks Wikimedia and others

Teddy Bear of The Day 4/20/2011



Now I'm a cool Teddy Bear but this isn't cool; "Two of Bernard L. Madoff’s investors lost their bid to sue the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for allegedly gross negligent oversight in its failure to uncover his Ponzi scheme. The U.S. asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming the government is immune from suits because the SEC has discretion in deciding who to investigate and how to conduct its queries."

Seems to me the "Scales Of Justice" are tipped a little.

Teddy Bears Soften Pain of Social Exclusion

New research from Singapore suggests touching a stuffed animal can counteract the tendency of ostracized people to engage in antisocial behavior.



We’ve all been there: The gang is going out for some fun, and we haven’t been invited. To hell with them, we think. In fact, to hell with everybody.
