1.  GOOBER….sorry..not calling you names…we’re saluting GEORGE “GOOBER” LINDSEY who turns 75 years old today…GOOBER was on “MAYBERRY R.F.D.” AND “HEE HAW”, among other programs…remember GOOBER?

2.  legendary actress CICELY TYSON will be 77 this weekend…sad to say, but i COMPLETELY forgot about her….CICELY TYSON starred in one of my favorite movies growing up, “SOUNDER.”  remember that movie?

here’s CICELY TYSON back in the 70’s…

and here is CICELY TYSON today at the age of 77..and may i say, looking awful nice for 77……….

3.  i was asked the other day “what are your favorite CHRISTMAS songs?”  well, here are number one and number two…

NUMBER ONE:  easy…..”LET IT BE CHRISTMAS” by ALAN JACKSON…this song is so beautiful, and puts a lump in my throat everytime i hear it…

NUMBER TWO:  GEORGE STRAIT had a CHRISTMAS song on his first CHRISTMAS cd, and i fell IN LOVE with the song….i love singing this song as well…it’s called “THERE’S A NEW KID IN TOWN.”

unfortunately i don’t have the GEORGE STRAIT version, but the song is done pretty well by ALAN JACKSON and the late great KEITH WHITLEY…

4.  ABERDEEN WINGS HOCKEY SATURDAY NIGHT, BABY…

i cannot tell you how HOOKED i am with ABERDEEN WINGS hockey…my wife and i LOVE to go to the games when we can, and it’s just wholesome family fun…AND THE FIGHTS ARE COOL..HA HA….the WINGS play saturday night at 8:00 at the ODDE ICE ARENA….a huge thanks to GREG ODDE for bringing the WINGS to town…hats off to you GREG….

5.  you know what i would love to do this weekend?  ice skating…i haven’t done that for years….i think the last time was when i hit the ice so hard i thought i broke my tailbone….but after sitting there for a few minutes, i was back at it….I SUCK at ice skating, but it’s a lot of fun..

6.  the winter activity i do not understand is ICE FISHING….if you have a nice warm shack, that’s fine…but to sit out in the open cold with your rear end freezing, just to catch an occasional fish is INSANE….i’ll just go to the local grocery store and buy some fish sticks and tartar sauce…

7.  according to a new poll, the most annoying word of 2010 was “WHATEVER”….and you know how i’m going to respond that?  WHATEVER…

8.  mayoral candidate RAHM EMANUEL is being questioned about his CHICAGO residency….he’s kind of like the CHICAGO CUBS…he’s there in the summer, and nowhere to be found in the fall…

9.  a man in NEW ZEALAND stole an ice cream truck at knifepoint and tried to elude police by throwing ice cream cones at them…it didn’t stop the cops…i bet this guy is wishing he would have stolen a donut truck…

10.  it’s been a big year for celebrity breakups….RYAN REYNOLDS AND SCARLETT JOHANSEN, SUSAN SARANDON AND TIM ROBBINS….TIGER WOODS AND HIS MONEY…MEL GIBSON AND REALITY…

11.  MICHAEL VICK said he wants to own a dog in the future….so, keep reminding your misbehaving dog about that….”YOU SHAPE UP, OR I’M SENDING YOU TO LIVE WITH MICHAEL VICK!!”

12.  JUSTIN BIEBER stopped a concert after a fight broke out over a towel he threw into the audience…it was actually two parents fighting over it, so they had something to stuff in their ears while JUSTIN was singing.

13.  TIME magazine has named LADY GAGA’S “meat dress” as the fashion statement of 2010….they said that it was “RARE” to have a dress like that, and they said, “WELL DONE” to LADY GAGA…..

14.  MARIAH CAREY is pregant with twins….the office of JOHN EDWARDS released a statement yesterday saying, “NO, AND NO.”

15.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Henry goes to confession and says, “Bless me father for I have sinned. Last night I was with 7 different women.”
     The priest says, take 7 lemons, squeeze them into a glass and drink the juice without pausing.
     “Will that cleanse me of my sins Father?”
     “No” replied the priest, “but it will wipe that silly grin off your face.”

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYBODY..

JAY DEAN
