random thoughts for monday september 20th, 2010

I’M BACK BABY!!!!! after a much needed week off at home, i’m happy to be back to work…(what?  am i sick?)….anyway, here’s your first blog in over a week!!



today’s daily blog sponsored as always, by DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS BOTH IN ABERDEEN….

1.  our celebrity birthday today is actor BEN STILLER’S mama, actress ANNE MEARA….she’s 81 years old today……she’s also married to actor JERRY STILLER, who played GEORGE CASTANZA’S dad on “SEINFELD.”  and they say HOLLYWOOD marriages don’t work…these guys have been married for 56 years!!!

here’s an early picture of ANNE MEARA AND JERRY STILLER, and a current one of them….

and here’s one of BEN STILLER, with his sister, and his parents…

2.  sad day in history today….it was 37 years ago today, that i was sitting in 4th grade at BRITTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, when it was announced that singer JIM CROCE was killed in a plane crash….he was only 30 years old…..we salute him today with our album covers of the day…..

and even though he was a super hot, probably pretty rich singer, his gravesite is very very simple….

my all time favorite JIM CROCE song is “OPERATOR”….here’s a video clip from the early 70’s of this classic…


and who can forget “BAD BAD LEROY BROWN.”  this was from the great show “THE MIDNITE SPECIAL.”


3.  a week ago today, i had the honor of singing a couple of songs at a friend’s aunts funeral in ABERDEEN….well, i have to tell you this…..I AM ABSOLUTELY AMAZED BY THE REVEREND HAROLD E. SALEM….this is one GREAT MAN….and what an inspiration spiritually…….i have never heard him preach before, but he blew me away…..he read bible verses without even having his bible open…..and he’s almost 90 years old……..GOD CREATED AN AWESOME SERVANT, WHEN HE CREATED PASTOR HAROLD SALEM…..

4.  DANG IT….my WASHINGTON REDSKINS looked incredible yesterday against the HOUSTON TEXANS, but it came down to a field goal in overtime as the TEXANS outlasted my favorite team….DONOVAN MCNABB looked great for my team, and with the TEXANS, the REDSKINS combined for over 900 yards of offense……my SKINS are 1-1…but the best news is….THE DALLAS COWBOYS ARE 0-2…..LOVE IT….

and wouldn’t you know it…yesterday was the VIKINGS game that my brother TROY and his wife SUE, along with their daughter and a friend got to go to…and the MINNESOTA VIKINGS looked horrible, as they lost to the MIAMI DOLPHINS…..i have a couple of friends who are MIAMI fans, and i’m sure they’re gloating today….aren’t you TRENT AND TOM?

5.  i’ll say this after being home for a week…TV SUCKS….wow…for having a hundred channels, there’s absolutely NOTHING on…i’m so glad that i’m on radio instead of tv…..and because of my hideously gross looks, thousands of people are happy, too…

6.  JEANNIE AND I were completely wore out after babysitting our five year old great niece, and our one year old great niece….don’t get me wrong, they were INCREDIBLY GOOD…but we’re kind of out of shape running after small kids…ha ha….anyway, our one year old niece did something crazy saturday….we were looking for her, and found her dipping her cup into the toilet and putting it up to her mouth….YUCK….

7.  a new study says that BROCCOLI may prevent ARTHRITIS….which means one thing…more people are planning on getting arthritis…..

8.  FIVE THOUNSAND PEOPLE were recently sworn in as “AMERICAN CITIZENS” at BOSTON’S FENWAY PARK…this marks a new record for the most people ever to enter FENWAY PARK to become YANKEES….

9.  in NEW YORK,  a parking ticket was put on a car while a man was DEAD in the driver’s seat….wow…some people just don’t want to give up a good parking spot….

10.  a town in BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, has installed camera on garbage trucks to make sure people are recyling properly…..here in the UNITED STATES, if we want to watch garbage, we just turn on “THE VIEW.”

11.  a new video game called “MICHAEL JACKSON….THE EXPERIENCE”, will be released on NOVEMBER 13TH…. if you get to level four, you come face to face with DR. CONRAD MURRAY who asks you if you need something to help you sleep….

12.  LINDSAY LOHAN reportedly has failed a drug test…she apparently was studying for the test with PARIS HILTON….

13.  MORGAN FREEMAN and his wife have divorced…apparently she caught him driving someone else besides MISS DAISY….


A customer at Green’s Gourmet Grocery marveled at the proprietor’s quick wit and intelligence.
     “Tell me, Green, what makes you so smart?”
     “I wouldn’t share my secret with just anyone,” Green replies, lowering his voice so the other shoppers won’t hear. “But since you’re a good and faithful customer, I’ll let you in on it. Fish heads. You eat enough of them, you’ll be positively brilliant.”
     “You sell them here?” the customer asks.
     “Only $4 apiece,” says Green.
     The customer buys three. A week later, he’s back in the store complaining that the fish heads were disgusting and he isn’t any smarter.
     “You didn’t eat enough, ” says Green. The customer goes home with 20 more fish heads. Two weeks later, he’s back and this time he’s really angry.
     “Hey, Green,” he says, “You’re selling me fish heads for $4 apiece when I can buy the whole fish for $2. You’re ripping me off!”
     “See?!!” says Green. “You’re getting smarter already!”
