THIS WILL BE THE LAST BLOG FOR 2009….I’LL RETURN WITH A NEW ONE ON MONDAY……

“JAY DEAN’S 2010 NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS”

 

1.  in 2010 i vow to lay back a little bit when it comes to olivia newton john, so that the restraining order will expire.

2.  in 2010 during the heat of passion, i vow to never yell out the name “SUSAN BOYLE”.

3.  in 2010, i vow to not see kenny chesney in concert….(that one shouldn’t be too hard to keep)

4.  in 2010, i vow to try harder at my nfl football picks….starting next year i will pick teams by how they play, and not just how pretty their uniforms are.

5.  in 2010, i vow to drop out of the “george clooney look-a-like contest.”

6.  in 2010 i will make a valiant effort not to eat popcorn off the floor of the theaters while cleaning them.

7.  in 2010 i vow not to be so hard on the brown county fair for not booking any pop and rock bands….(okay, so i won’t keep EVERY  resolution!!!!)

8.  in 2010 i vow to try to slow down while driving….(31 minutes from aberdeen to hecla is not acceptable!!!)

9.  in 2010 when someone hurts me, i will realize that forgiveness is a lot cheaper than a lawsuit…but not NEARLY as rewarding….

10.  in 2010 i will assume full responsibility for my actions….(except those that are everyone else’s fault)

11.  in 2010 i vow to stop trying to pair up my single friends with kate gosselin and tiger woods…..

12.  and finally, in 2010, i vow to not be so “nerdy.”  (oh what the hell…it’s worked for 45 years, might as well keep going)

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY….

***MOST IMPORTANTLY TODAY….HAPPY 46TH ANNIVERSARY TO MY WONDERFUL PARENTS, DEAN AND DIANA HAALAND OF PIERPONT…LOVE YOU GUYS……….

1.  today in our “yesterday and today” segment, we salute MARY TYLER MOORE who turns 73 today….73…wow…and still beautiful…here’s a picture of MTM in her early years when she was on “the dick van dyke show” and “the mary tyler moore show.”

and here is MARY TYLER MOORE today at the age of 73….

2.  last night when my son mitchell and i were cleaning theaters together, we were talking about JOSH GROBAN, who had one of his christmas songs playing on the screen while we were cleaning.  both mitchell and i LOVE JOSH GROBAN, and think he has one of the most wonderful voices ever…..by the way, one of the coolest things he ever did was on an award show last year when he sang a medley of TELEVISION THEME SONGS…it was totally cool…here’s the video…..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7xD59eAnUc

3.  speaking of cleaning theaters, i have one thing to say…PEOPLE ARE PIGS….my goodness….last night, it took us FOREVER to clean 9 theaters, because the messes were horrendous…..imagine what life would be like if we, as human beings, cleaned up after ourselves…..long before i started working at carmike, my wife and i would ALWAYS grab our garbage and put it in the garbage cans on the way out of the theaters….a few people still do that, but a majority don’t…and it’s ironic that i brought this up today, because there’s a great story in the american news sports section about how write JOHN PAPENDICK talks to someone about cleaning up after ourselves…read it, it’s a good article, as john always does….maybe that should be all of our new year’s resolutions….to clean up after ourselves and make this world a bit cleaner…….

4.  i think everybody and their dog had the same idea last night…”LET’S GO TO A MOVIE”…ha ha ha….we were packed last night…ran by little butt off….got home last night about 11 and just collapsed in bed….hmmm…..seems i’m not as young as i used to be……

5.  HOW COULD THE VIKINGS LOSE TO THE CHICAGO BEARS?  wow…what a game…the bears scored a touchdown in overtime last night to upset the vikes….and oh, how people are turning on the vikings…this morning on ESPN RADIO, a couple of commentators were talking and they said that the vikings are “ONE AND OUT” in the playoffs this year….wow…just three weeks ago, they were talking “super bowl.”…people are so fickle…..

6.  you can tell jeannie and i are getting older and wiser….we’re making our new year’s eve plans, and it’s based on which movie we’re going to watch at home, and what time we’re going to start it so we can get to bed at a decent time…ha ha

7.  critics of montana senator max baucus say that he was DRUNK during a speech he made on health care…hey congress, c’mon….they said to pass the bill FOR ted kennedy, not LIKE ted kennedy…..

8.  during a 911 call to police, actor charlie sheen’s wife reportedly claimed that sheen was threatening her with “a weapon”….it was either a knife or a dvd version of his movie “scary movie 4″…they’re both equally frightening……

9.  seems the NFL is facing a “marketing problem.”  over the christmas weekend, the most talked about “tackles” involved the pope, and a northwest airlines passenger….

10.  reality tv idiot JON GOSSELIN found his apartment burglarized this past weekend..you can see all the details on the new tv show, “JON MINUS KATE PLUS POLICE.”

11.  a living nativity scene in colorado had to do without two of it’s crucial characters when two donkeys escaped…wow….between this and the “balloon dad”, it hasn’t been a good month for jackasses in colorado….

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY…..***LOVE THIS ONE******

A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his friends late one night, and led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong.
     “What’s that big brass gong?” one of the guests asked.
     “It’s not a gong. It’s a talking clock,” the drunk replied.
     “A talking clock? Seriously?” asked his astonished friend.
     “Yup,” replied the drunk.
     “How’s it work?” the friend asked, squinting at it.
     “Watch,” the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave it an ear shattering pound, and stepped back. The three stood looking at one another for a moment.
     Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed “You moron! It’s ten past three in the morning!”

HA HA HA…GOOD ONE…

HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY EVERYBODY…

JAY DEAN


 

 

1.  our “today and yesterday” segement will feature actor MARTIN MILNER who played “OFFICER MALLOY” on “ADAM 12”..we’re featuring him on his 78th birthday today….here’s a picture of him from the show years ago…i used to LOVE “ADAM 12″….

here he is with actor KENT MCCORD who was his partner on “ADAM 12.”….

and here is MARTIN MILNER today on his 78th birthday….

2.  BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!!!! BAR NONE….stuck in the house with jeannie and tyler and mitchell for over 48 hours…priceless…all four of us agreed that it was the best christmas ever…..it was sad missing church in hecla and houghton on christmas eve, but i did get to go to church in warner with my family for the first time in a long long time…hope your christmas was as good as ours….

3.  we sat down on christmas eve and watched “INGLORIOUS BASTERDS” with brad pitt and the gang…i really hadn’t planned on watching that movie, but i REALLY ENJOYED IT…..very good acting and an “interesting” story…..

4.  last night jeannie and i went to carmike theaters to see “IT’S COMPLICATED” with steve martin, alec baldwin and the great meryl streep….very entertaining movie…we laughed our heads off at parts of the movie….it’s fun to go to the movies once in awhile and not have to think about the plot of the movie….

5.  WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE MY CHRISTMAS PRESENT FROM JEANNIE AND THE BOYS…what a wonderful gift, and it’s “homemade”…my niece tracy in minnesota made this for me. check it out…

it’s an “ottoman” with a “built in cooler”……very very cool, and she made it herself…makes it that much more special…LOVE YOU TRACY…AND THANK YOU……

6.  congratulations to TRENT OSBORNE of the ipswich school system on being named a “regional” south dakota principal of the year……trent is a good friend of mine, and his brother jason was my best friend from junior high thru high school.  his father, trevor, is one of my heroes  in my life and was my high school principal and band director, so trent has had some great inspiration as well…..by the way, if you need any “dirt” on trent osborne, call me..i have a bunch…hee hee……..

7.  jon gosselin’s apartment was ransacked over the weekend by someone who slashed his furniture, stole his tv, and left a note pinned to his dresser with a butcher knife….there are no suspects, but 300 million american persons of interest……

8.  police say that ivana trump was escorted off a plane in florida after becoming belligerent…great..two airline threats now….radical terrorists and grumpy socialites……

9.  missouri troopers seized 20 pounds of marijuana from a car this week, some of it wrapped up in christmas presents…officials arrested a fat bearded man, and a reindeer whose eyes were as red as his nose….

10.  a suburban philadelphia teenager was suspended for a day for wearing a santa claus suit to school….c’mon dude..you know the rules…the only time there’s any “lap sitting” going on, is when a teacher is hitting on you!!!!!!!

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A woman in labor is having a really tough time dealing with the pain. The doctor comes to her and her husband and tells them of a new experimental drug that allows the woman to transfer 25% of the pain to the father. The husband feels really bad for his wife so he decides they will try it.
     The wife takes the pill and a few minutes later the husband says, “I don’t feel a thing. You women are babies. Take another pill. I can handle this.”
     So the wife takes another pill. Same thing happens. Her husband tells her to take another pill. Same thing. By now she has transferred 75% of her pain to her husband. She is feeling a little pain but her husband is still feeling nothing. He is convinced that women are complete wusses.
     He tells her, “Take another pill. This isn’t hurting me at all. Let me take all the pain away.” So she does. Now they are both feeling great.
     A few hours later, the wife gives birth to a beautiful baby boy. The next day they take their newborn son home, and there they find the mailman dead on the doorstep.

HAVE AN INCREDIBLE MONDAY….

JAY DEAN

jay dean

THESE ARE  JAY DEAN’S TOP FIVE REASONS TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS……..

5.  SANTA CLAUS

4.  THE KIDS AND PRESENTS…..

3.  BEING “HOME” FOR CHRISTMAS….

2.  BEING WITH “THE FAMILY”

AND THE NUMBER ONE REASON TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS? 

THE BIRTH OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST……

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE…AND GOD’S PEACE AND LOVE TO EACH OF YOU.  I HOPE THAT EACH OF YOU EXPERIENCES THE TRUE JOY OF CHRISTMAS, AND THE GREAT FEELING OF THE BIRTH OF OUR SAVIOR.

1.  “WARD, DON’T YOU THINK YOU WERE A LITTLE HARD ON THE BEAVER?”  one of the classic tv lines delivered by MRS. JUNE CLEAVER, played by actress BARBARA BILLINGSLEY….we’re saluting her today because today is her 94th birthday….yep, still kickin…..here’s a couple of classic BARBARA BILLINGSLEY photos….

and here’s BARBARA BILLINGSLEY today on her 94th birthday…

AND LOOK WHAT I FOUND…..it’s a picture of BARBARA with JERRY MATHERS AND TONY DOW, who played “wally and the beav.”  plus, i beleive the guys in back are “lumpy and eddie haskel”…COOL PICTURE…

2.  DEAR SANTA,

I’VE BEEN A PRETTY GOOD BOY THIS YEAR, SO I’M HOPING YOU CAN HELP ME OUT AT CHRISTMAS.  FOR CHRISTMAS THSI YEAR,I WOULD LIKE A NEW WASHINGTON REDSKINS OWNER, A NEW REDSKINS QUARTERBACK, A NEW REDSKINS RUNNING BACK, A NEW REDSKINS WIDE RECIEVER, A NEW REDSKINS OFFENSIVE LINE……………………………………………………..

3.  I DIDN’T REALIZE I WAS WATCHING THE CLEVELAND BROWNS LAST NIGHT…crap…turns out it was my own washington redskins….they turned in the worst performance i HAVE EVER seen by a redskins team…..this team has to be ripped apart, players cut, older players taken out behind the barn, and fresh new faces need to get this team going….I’M PRAYING THAT MIKE SHANAHAN BECOMES THE SKINS COACH VERY SOON…

4.  UP TO A FOOT OF SNOW COULD FALL IN OUR AREA BY CHRISTMAS NIGHT…yuck….the weather service says that this could be a very bad storm with lots of wind and everything….hopefully people get stranded with their loved ones, if this thing hits.  you really hate to see this, because families want to go to church for christmas, and want to spend christmas with their extended families.  hopefully the storm will pass by….but it doesn’t sound like it……

5.  i cannot wait for wednesday night…..it’s KUMLA nite at the household…my wife makes the absolute best kumla i’ve ever tasted….and my kids are crazy about it.  this year, we’ll introduce tyler’s girlfriend kelsey to it…hopefully she’ll love it too.  kumla is where you grind up potatoes, pack them with flour and boil them in ham juice for about an hour…after that, you squash them down, immerse them  in butter and salt them down…..DIET FOOD…NOT….ha ha…..but it’s a family tradition, and truthfully, they’re almost better the next morning cut up and fried in butter.

6.  slow down out there…i saw people driving like their butts were on fire yesterday around aberdeen.  with the weather turning worse and the roads going to crap, we must slow down and allow extra time.  hopefully nobody is seriously injured or killed by people driving like they’re out of their heads…..

7.  the senate voted on the health care bill tuesday at ONE O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING….of course, 92 year old senator robert byrd voted, too…he was already up using the bathroom….

8.  the associated press has named taylor swift their “ENTERTAINER OF THE DECADE.”  and now kayne west will be named, “THE ENTERTAINER WHO MOST LIKELY WILL HAVE A PROBLEM WITH TAYLOR SWIFT WINNING ENTERTAINER OF THE DECADE.”

9.  saturday in new york, kevin jonas of “the jonas brothers” defied a blinding snowstorm and went ahead with his wedding to danielle delesea.  heck, after 22 years of virginity, i would have defied a rain of hellfire…..

10.  archaeologists report finding a house in nazareth that dates back to the time of JESUS…unfortunately, it’s now in foreclosure.

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY….

A ventriloquist is touring the clubs and stops to entertain in a small town. He’s going through his usual run of off-color and ‘dumb blonde’ jokes, when a well-dressed blonde woman in the fourth row stands on her chair and shouts, “I’ve heard just about enough of your stupid blonde jokes, you jerk! What makes you think you can stereotype women that way? What connection can a person’s hair colour possibly have with their fundamental worth as a human being? It’s morons like you that prevent women like myself from being respected at work and in our communities and from reaching our full potential, because you and your Neanderthal brethren continue to perpetuate negative images against not only blondes, but women in general, for the sake of cheap laughs.”
    Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to apologize, when the blonde yells, “You stay out of this mister! I’m talking to that little jerk on your knee!”

HAVE A WONDERFUL TUESDAY EVERYBODY…DRIVE SAFELY…

JAY DEAN

1.  in our “today and yesterday” segment, we feature a couple of people celebrating their birthdays today…first of all, JANE FONDA IS 72 YEARS OLD TODAY….and she looks damn good for 72, let me tell you.  here’s a couple of photos of JANE FONDA yesterday and today…

2.  tragic news out of hollywood yesterday….actress BRITTANY MURPHY died at the age of 32 yesterday..she went into full cardiac arrest at home with her husband….officials are not suspecting foul play, however an autopsy is being planned…BRITTANY MURPHY was such a talented actress…she was the voice of LUANN  ON “KING OF THE HILL” on television…she also appeared in the movies, “8 MILE”, “GIRL INTERRUPTED”,  “CLUELESS”  AND “JUST MARRIED” with ASHTON KUTCHER…but my favorite role of BRITTANY MURPHY’S was when she played “SHELLIE” on “SIN CITY”….here are a couple of pictures of the beautiful BRITTANY MURPHY, dead at the age of 32…..

and here she is in the incredibly good movie “SIN CITY”…

3.  speaking of movies, my beautiful wife jeannie and i FINALLY went to see “THE BLIND SIDE” yesterday at carmike…what an incredibly good movie…..it’s the true story of MICHAEL OHER, who plays football with the BALTIMORE RAVENS…if you haven’t seen this movie, get to see it before it ends…

4.  on the way home last night, we stopped by, i beleive it was 13th street in aberdeen, to watch this house that had the light in sync with music…what an incredibly cool idea…i wonder how that is done…..i could have sat there for an hour watching that…..

5.  WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY OF CHURCH YESTERDAY…at our services at st. john’s in hecla yesterday, we had the sunday school program, and i had TWO baptisms…incredibly cool day…and then at trinity lutheran in houghton, we had the area cantata.  it was the second time i have seen that cantata and it still gave me goosebumps…..kudos to everyone involved who helped get many people in the “real christmas mood.”

6.  “avatar” cleaned up at the box office over the weekend….raking in over 73 million dollars…the next closest was 12.2 million dollars….”did you hear about the morgan’s?” starring hugh grant and sarah jessica parker did HORRIBLE…it only raked in SEVEN MILLION DOLLARS…complete bust…

7.  well, my washington redskins play on monday night football tonight.  i have to go to oakes, n.d. for my church, but i’m hoping to be home to see part of the game tonight…

in other nfl action:

*****the minnesota vikings looked horrible last night in a loss to the carolina panthers…the vikes won the nfc north because green bay was beaten on a last second play by the pittsburgh steelers.

*****the emotional cincinnati bengals, mourning the loss of chris henry, who died last week.  the bengals lost to the san diego chargers on a late game field goal.

*****the stupid dallas cowboys beat the new orleans saints and took them out of the unbeaten ranks…plus, they stiffled quarterback drew brees, who was my quarterback in the football playoffs in fantasy league…..crap….

8.  an arizona music teacher is in hot water after taking 40 students to eat lunch at HOOTERS…it’s part of her evil plan to get more dads involved in helping out with field trips…..ha ha

9.  i asked my wife what she wanted for christmas and she said “a divorce”…i told her that i wasn’t planning on spending that much.

10.  a hayward, california man had a $22,000 dollar cell phone bill thanks to his 13 year old son…if that were my son, the next text he made would be from military school……

11.  president obama said that he expects santa claus to use the chimney in the white house’s “yellow room” this year….hmm…why doesn’t santa do what everyone else is doing and just walk past the secret service……

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY….(LOVE THIS ONE)

Two men are sitting drinking at a bar at the top of the Empire State Building when the first man turns to the other and says, “You know, last week I discovered that if you jump from the top of this building, by the time you fall to the 10th floor, the winds around the building are so intense that they carry you around the building and back into the window.”
     The bartender just shakes his head in disapproval while wiping the bar.
     The second guy says, “What are you a nut? There is no way in hell that could happen.”
     “No, it’s true,” said the first man, “let me prove it to you.” He gets up from the bar, jumps over the balcony, and plummets to the street below. When he passes the 10th floor, the high wind whips him around the building and back into the 10th floor window and he takes the elevator back up to the bar.
     He met the second man, who looked quite astonished. “You know, I saw that with my own eyes, but that must have been a one time fluke.”
     “No, I’ll prove it again,” says the first man as he jumps. Again just as he is hurling toward the street, the 10th floor wind gently carries him around the building and into the window.
     Once upstairs he urges his fellow drinker to try it. “Well, what the hell,” the second guy says, “it works, I’ll try it!” He jumps over the balcony, plunges downward, passes the 11th, 10th, 9th, 8th floors … and hits the sidewalk with a SPLAT.
     Back upstairs the bartender turns to the other drinker, saying “You know, Superman, you’re a real jerk when you’re drunk.”

HAVE A SUPERB  MONDAY EVERYONE…AND HAVE A FANTASTIC CHRISTMAS WEEK…

JAY DEAN
