random thoughts for monday december 6th, 2010

your friends at DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS bring  you today’s daily blog….


1.  remember the super cute kid, TABITHA on “BEWITCHED?”  she was played by ERIN MURPHY.  ERIN is all grown up now, actually she’s my age, 46…..here she is on the show, plus one with her ‘tv mommy’ ELIZABETH MONTGOMERY…

and here is ERIN MURPHY today at 46….geez, i wish i looked that good at 46…..

2.  well, my weekend alone is complete, and truthfully, i had a pretty good time…LOTS OF COUCH TIME….and remember my plan to catch up on movies at CARMIKE?  it didn’t work out very good, except for i did go to one last night….i decided to see the DISNEY movie “TANGLED” last night.  it’s the story of RAPUNZEL…

in one word…AWESOME….it’s another “INSTANT DISNEY CLASSIC.”  to me, though, the star of the show was the horse, “MAXIMUS.”

the horse was HILARIOUS….the movie had a good plot…kind of a “twist” on the RAPUNZEL story….but i HIGHLY RECOMMEND this one for families, or for anyone….very delightful night at the movies….


3.  this past saturday night, i watched the most incredible television show that i have seen in a long time…it was on the DISCOVERY CHANNEL, and it was a documentary about the secret service guys who took care of PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY…the show was called “THE KENNEDY DETAIL.”  the guys give a minute by minute detail of KENNEDY’S assasination, including how they feel that they “failed” because their only job was to protect the president.  if you get the chance to see this documentary on DISCOVERY CHANNEL, don’t miss the chance to watch it…

by the way, you know the guy who jumped on the back of KENNEDY’S car when he was shot?  i met the guy…his name is CLINT HILL, and one day at a radio station that i worked for in LISBON, NORTH DAKOTA, he walked in the door with his mom…apparently his mom lived in LISBON, which i didn’t know…a co-worker of mine pointed him out and said that he doesn’t talk about the incident because he “failed” at securing KENNEDY….but, he opens up on this show…and by the way, lots of tears are shed, showing that these guys still hurt after protecting a president and losing him….AWESOME SHOW…

4.  is BRETT FAVRE done?  some people hope so….the MINNESOTA VIKINGS clobbered the BUFFALO BILLS yesterday, after FAVRE went down early in the game…apparently he has a separated shoulder…..will he play this weekend?  coach LESLIE FRAZIER made it clear…if FAVRE is healthy, he will start…now, as far as the TARVARIS JACKSON bandwagoners, look at his stats…he didn’t do that great….the hero of the game was ADRIAN PETERSON….


6.  i had numerous people this weekend tell me, “JAY, YOU HAVE TO GO SEE THE MOVIE ‘BURLESQUE’.”  sorry, not going to happen…i cannot stand the singing of CHRISTINA AGUILERA…nothing personal, just can’t stand her singing…or MARIAH CAREY….hate that “warbling” that they do…REBA MCENTIRE also does it….but, she didn’t do it early in her career…i used to LOVE REBA when she was in her early country days, but really don’t care for her since she became the “HUMAN TORNADO SIREN.”

7.  a survery by babycenter.com,  says that the names AIDEN and SOPHIA are the most popular baby names of 2010…up and coming names are FINN, QUINN, AND BENTLEY…the last three names are LATIN for “beat me up and take my lunch money.”

8.  there’s an anonymous group in NORTH CAROLINA that hands out 100 dollar bills to anyone that they feel looks like they need it….kind of like CONGRESS, only with ‘real money.’

9.  a man in AUSTRALIA has married his dog….and now he has the first wife in world history that demands that the toilet seat be left up…

10.  this past saturday, two people were stabbed before the USC/UCLA football game…what the heck…was it O.J.SIMPSON day at the stadium?

11.  controvery in IDAHO as one family member had a “KKK” hood wearing snowman on the front lawn…hmm..kind of taking the “WHITE CHRISTMAS” thing a bit too seriously…


A fire started on some grassland near a farm. The county fire department was called to put the fire out. The fire was more than the county fire department could handle. Someone suggested that a nearby volunteer bunch be called. Though there was doubt that the volunteer outfit would be of any assistance, the call was made.
    The volunteers arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck. They rumbled straight towards the fire and stopped in the middle of the flames.
    The firemen jumped off the truck and frantically started spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily controllable parts.
    Watching all this, the farmer was so impressed with the volunteer fire department’s work and was so grateful that his farm had been spared, that right there on the spot he presented the volunteers with a check for $1000.
    A local news reporter asked the volunteer fire captain what the department planned to do with the funds.
    Wiping ashes off his coat, the captain responded, “Well, the first thing we’re gonna do is get the brakes fixed on that damned fire truck!”
