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…
