2.  speaking of “THE DUKES OF HAZZARD”, i wonder whatever happened to BOSS HOGG…BOSS HOGG was played by actor SORRELL BOOKE…SORRELL once won an EMMY nomation for his role in DR. KILDARE, in an episode called “WHAT’S GOD TO JULIUS?”

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Two strangers are sitting in adjacent seats in an airplane.
     One guy says to the other, “Let’s talk. I hear that the flight will go faster if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”
     The other guy, who had just opened a good book, closes it slowly, takes off his glasses and asks, “What would you like to discuss?”
     The first guy says, “Oh, I don’t know; how about nuclear power?”
     The other guy says, “OK, that could make for some pretty interesting conversation. But let me ask you a question first: A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff, but the deer excretes pellets; the cow, big patties; and the horse, clumps of dried grass. Why is that?”
     The first guy says, “I don’t know.”
     The other guy says, “Oh? Well, then, do you really think you’re qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don’t know crap?”

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY!!!
