DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS OF ABERDEEN, PROUDLY BRING YOU TODAY’S DAILY BLOG!!!

 

1.  well, it seems to all be about “GOOD TIMES.”  last week we saluted you young woman who played the daughter on ‘GOOD TIMES’, and today we’re featuring the man who played the dad….actor JOHN AMOS played JAMES EVANS on the show….and they actually KILLED HIM OFF of the show in a car accident…by the way, JOHN AMOS was only EIGHT YEARS older than JIMMIE WALKER, who played his son “JJ”…..and he was NINETEEN YEARS younger than ESTER ROLLE, who played his wife on the show…..here’s JOHN AMOS on the show…

and here he is today on his 71st birthday…

2.  check out this crazy basketball shot from last weekend…the ball sits ON THE FRONT OF THE RIM, and seems to fall in when the guy swings at it…..a professor analyzed the shot and said that it is totally possible for the ball to hang on the rim, and that, yes, the air from the guy swatting probably moved the ball…

3.  DID YOU HAVE A GOOD CHRISTMAS?  i certainly did….i had two church services in HOUGHTON AND HECLA on CHRISTMAS EVE, and then i journeyed home to spend the rest of the night with my beautiful wife JEANNIE, my terrific sons TYLER AND MITCHELL, and TYLER’S incredible girlfriend KELSEY….we had a blast……CHRISTMAS DAY we went to ROSLYN to spend the day with JEANNIE’S family…had an awesome time there, as well….

4.  TYLER got one of the coolest gifts for CHRISTMAS…he has an X-BOX, and now has the X-BOX “KINECT”, which allows you to play the games WITHOUT HOLDING A CONTROLLER…that’s right…WITHOUT HOLDING A CONTROLLER….the first thing we did was bowling, and the grab a “virtual” ball, and throw it at the pins….the track and field part is incredible, where you physically run in place and do the stuff without holding a controller….what’s next anyway?  this wave of modern technology is kind of scary….the only thing i really don’t like about it, is that the system can “record” you doing your stuff and play it back at the end….to me, that’s way too much of a breach of privacy!!!

5.  last night JEANNIE AND I went to see “TRUE GRIT” at the CARMIKE THEATERS, but the show was sold out….in fact, FOUR MOVIES were sold out when we got there..the theaters were PACKED….i said that i didn’t want to see this movie, because the JOHN WAYNE original is such a classic….

but, my wife had kind of talked me into seeing it…so, this week, we will go see JEFF BRIDGES play “ROOSTER COGBURN.”

6.  BRING ON THE NEW YEAR’S BABY….i LOVE having short work weeks like this…the only thing better is having CHRISTMAS EVE and NEW YEAR’S EVE on thursdays, so it’s two four day weekends in a row…..it’s going to SUCK having CHRISTMAS EVE AND NEW YEAR’S EVE on a SATURDAY next year….

7.  over the weekend, 84 year old HUGH HEFNER got engaged to his 24 year old girlfriend CRYSTAL HARRIS….also, REDSKINS’S quarterback DONOVAN MCNABB said that he wanted to be released after their last game….it’s the same request being made by CRYSTAL HARRIS…

8.  BRISTOL PALIN has purchased a home in ARIZONA, SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN’S home state….hasn’t that family done enough for that poor man already?  ha ha

9.  researchers have found and decoded  secret message from the CIVIL WAR….it was a private message between two soldiers….corporal LARRY KING and captain ANDY ROONEY…

10.  christmas was weird around the BRETT FAVRE home…BRETT unwrapped a  package, and then, out of habit, sent pictures of it to some young women…

11.  MTV announced that it’s giving “JERSEY SHORE” star PAULY D. his own show….GEEZ…2011 hasn’t even started and i’m already depressed….

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

why isn’t is smart to wear MINNESOTA VIKINGS pajamas to bed?  because you’re DEFINETLY not going to score….

 

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERYBODY…

JAY DEAN

1.  well, my friend, KEVIN is at it again…he does an EXCELLENT job at placing my face on other pictures…what’s that called? “PHOTOSHOPPING?” i’m not up on these terms…(old duffer)…

anyway, you remember the one he did for CHRISTMAS for me?

 

WELL, KEVIN did an even BETTER one of me for a CHRISTMAS movie….my son MITCHELL said that this one is kinda scary!!

 

how would i look on my favorite movie ‘THE WIZARD OF OZ?”  let’s let KEVIN show us…

 

and the last one is kind of sad, because all KEVIN had to do was place MY REAL SENIOR PICTURE on the poster and this one worked…I WAS SUCH A NERD…

SERIOUSLY…WHERE ARE MY ROYALTIES FROM THAT MOVIE…

KEVIN, keep up the good work..these are INCREDIBLE….

 

2.  whatever happened to the crew from the tv shows “THE HARDY BOYS/NANCY DREW MYSTERIES?”  let’s find out….here they are back in the 70’s….

well, let’s do ladies first…NANCY DREW was played by actress PAMELA SUE MARTIN, who went on to play on the tv show “DYNASTY.”  she is now 57 years old…

SHAUN CASSIDY, of course, had the big hit “DA DOO RON RON”, back in the 70’s, and today is 52 years old…

actor PARKER STEVENSON hasn’t been in much since around 1998, and finding current pictures of him are a bit tough…however, i did find one of him with his former wife KIRSTIE ALLEY….

3.  THREE TO FIVE INCHES OF SNOW are possible today…please be careful today and thru the entire CHRISTMAS weekend…i want you back here monday!!

4.  everybody  asks me ‘what do you want for CHRISTMAS?’….here’s my answer….NOTHING…just to be home with JEANNIE TYLER AND MITCHELL is all i ask for….

5.  CHRISTMAS TRIVIA TO DAZZLE YOUR FRIENDS WITH:

**in GREEK, “X” means “CHRIST.”  that’s where “xmas” comes from…

**BING CROSBY’S “WHITE CHRISTMAS” was released way back in 1942, and is considered the biggest CHRISTMAS song of all time.

**ONE IN TEN christmas presents that are received will be BROKEN by NEW YEARS DAY.

**it can take up to 15 YEARS for a christmas tree to grow SIX OR SEVEN feet tall….

**the average time spent per person on last minute purchases? 33 MINUTES….

**the average number of times that VISA CARDS are used every minute during CHRISTMAS?  5,340…….WOW….

6.  did you hear the stupid story about NEW YORK JET’S coach REX RYAN and his supposed “FOOT FETISH?”  apparently there are a couple of videos on youtube that feature him loving up his wife’s feet…..CRAP..ISN’T THAT JUST MY LUCK?  i guess i’ll take back the pair of shoes i bought for him for CHRISTMAS…

7.  GM is recycling oil-soaked booms from the BP gulf oil spill into parts for their CHEVY VOLT…now, when people drive it off the lot they will have that “NEW TAR SMELL.”

8.  PARIS HILTON doesn’t read newspapers anymore, because of all the crap that has been written about her….she’s also confused by newspapers…she cannot beleive that people DIE IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER…..

9.  the movie “LITTLE FOCKERS’ is out in theaters, and is about an uncomfortable family get together…or as i call it, “CHRISTMAS AFTERNOON.”

10.  a SAN FRANCISCO art dealer was aquitted of knowling selling fake art…people’s first clue?  his name….BUBBA DA VINCI….

11.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

(nice short sweet one to end the week)

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY…

DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS BRING YOU TODAY’S DAILY BLOG….

 

HERE ARE MY NEW MUGSHOTS AFTER MY MOST RECENT ARREST….

1.  we have a couple of celebrity birthdays today…let’s have ladies first….actress BERNNADETTE STANIS has a birthday…you probably don’t recognize the name, but you’ll recognize her character.  she played the daughter THELMA on “GOOD TIMES.”  here she is with the cast of the show….she’s standing next to her brother on the left side….

and here she is today, as she celebrates birthday number 57…

2.  plus, one third of the BEE GEES has a birthday today…ROBIN GIBB turns 61 today…..i’m sure that it’s a hard day for him, as his twin brother MAURICE of the band, died a few years back….anyway, here’s ROBIN GIBB with his brothers, “THE BEE GEES”….you’ll recognize the BEE GEES in the first picture, because they’re the ones with the super white smile, and the only ones permitted to smile…ha ha

and here’s ROBIN GIBB today on his 61st birthday…

and one with remaining brother BARRY…

3.  so, what about some music by ROBIN GIBB?  well, as a solo artist, he has one song that really turns my crank….it’s called “BOYS DO FALL IN LOVE” and it’s from 1984….

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

and one of my favorite BEE GEE’S songs that ROBIN sings lead on is “I STARTED A JOKE.”

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

or how about the classic “MASSACHUSETTS”?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4OaNqtqXzQ

 

4.  guess who came into FARGO’S  HECTOR INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT yesterday?  actor JOSH DUHAMEL and singer FERGIE….the married couple is in FARGO visiting his father for CHRISTMAS…JOSH DUHAMEL is from MINOT, NORTH DAKOTA..

5.  remember my KUMLA dinner that we had this past sunday?

well, as i mentioned, the best part of KUMLA is frying it up in butter the next morning…so, this morning, i fried up the rest of it, and then poured some melted butter over the top of it and enjoyed it…but i realized something when i got done…I USED AN ENTIRE STICK OF BUTTER ON MY BREAKFAST….have the defibrillator ready…..

6.  am i the only one who’s not excited to see “LITTLE FOCKERS?”  that’s the BEN STILLER movie coming out today that’s the third movie in the series….first of all, i don’t really approve of the title…i KNOW what they’re trying to do…i just don’t like kids walking around saying “LITTLE FOCKERS.”  i think it gives them too much liberty to sound like they’re cussing…..(oh my gosh..i’ve turned into an old geezer!!)

7.  HOMELAND SECURITY director JANET NAPOLITANO assured AMERICANS that the government is working “24/7…364 days a year” to protect us…..now terrorists just have to try and figure out WHICH ONE DAY they’re taking off…..

8.  in a recent interview ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER hinted that he would like  a job with PRESIDENT OBAMA….republicans have decided that they will hire him to help move furniture for OBAMA in two years…

9.  according to WIKILEAKS cable, INDIA is accused of torture…so, apparently AMERICAN radio stations aren’t the only ones playing ‘GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER.”

10.  the mystery of aviator AMELIA EARHART’S disappearance may have been solved after the discovery of bones on a south pacific island….no wait…check that….it’s just NICOLE RICHIE on her honeymoon….

11.  PARIS HILTON is now sponsoring her own international motorcycle racing team…that’s shocking…i had no idea that PARIS was interested in anything without a back seat…

12.  the ROSEVILLE GALLERIA shopping mall in northern CALIFORNIA had to be evacuated when nearly FIVE THOUSAND singers showed up as part of a “flash mob” to sing CHRISTMAS songs….the combined weight of the singers caused the floor to start giving way….okay..here’s the deal….either that’s one really poorly built mall, or the singers had better back away from the christmas cookie table…

13.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

(overheard the other day)

“do you know what would have happened back then if it was “THREE WISE WOMEN” that had showed up at the manger? they would have asked for directions, arrived on time, helped deliver the baby, cleaned the stable, made a casserole, and brought disposable diapers as gifts.”

THAT’S FUNNY…

HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY…

DAKOTA HOT TUBS AND DISCOUNT VAC BRING YOU TODAY’S DAILY BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

1.  today we’re going to salute SOUTH DAKOTA’S own…CATHERINE BACH, who played “DAISY DUKE” on THE DUKES OF HAZZARD….CATHERINE was actually born in CLEVELAND, but grew up on her grandparents ranch near FAITH, SOUTH DAKOTA, and graduated from high school in RAPID CITY…..here she is the way we remember her….right guys?

and here are a couple of pictures of CATHERINE BACH in the last couple of years….by the way, she’s now 56 years old…

2.  HAPPINESS IS……HAVING A RETIRED NEIGHBOR WITH A SNOW PLOW…..thanks terry!!!!!!!!!!

3.  CLASSIC CHRISTMAS TOY FROM THE 70’S…

check out this commercial…

i think i had everyone of these toys….(commercial is a bit shaky, but good….)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9crZwtdovE

4.  well, i was supposed to leave for MINNEAPOLIS this morning to take my FATHER down for some doctor’s appointments, but we cancelled the trip last night…..MINNESOTA got hit pretty hard by this snowstorm, and i told my dad that they last thing i wanted to do was sit in the ditch, or drive 30 miles an hour for 100 miles…better to be safe than sorry…..KEEP THAT IN MIND EVERYBODY….i want you safe and back reading the blog and listening to the show….

5.  i was doing all kinds of music research for sunny 97-7 over the past two weeks, and one of the things i was doing was looking up videos….and i found one of, what i beleive is ONE OF THE BEST SONGS OF THE ENTIRE 1970’S….here’s the band “GALLERY”, with thier big 1972 hit, “IT’S SO NICE TO BE WITH YOU.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIoUWmdG0Xg

6.  GEEZ…NICE PERFORMANCE BY THE MINNESOTA VIKINGS LAST NIGHT….the VIKES forgot to show up, i guess, in a drubbing by the CHICAGO BEARS, who won the division last night…..BRETT FAVRE was knocked out of the game and could be done for his career….this time he appeared to either hurt his other shoulder, or hit his head hard…..seriously, how much more can this guy take?

7.  i almost screwed myself up last night……my brother TREVOR is playing me for the right to go to the championship game in our “FAMILY FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE.”  going into last night’s game, i had like a TWELVE POINT lead, with TREVOR having ADRIAN PETERSON of the VIKINGS as his last player…well, right before gametime i called him to get cocky, because ADRIAN was out for the game…the thing i didn’t take into consideration was, that TREVOR WOULD GO AND DROP ADRIAN AND PICK UP TOBY GERHART, THE BACKUP RUNNING BACK…so, i sweated thru the entire game last night, hoping TOBY wasn’t going to rip one down the sidelines for a touchdown…at the end of the night, i beat TREVOR by FOUR POINTS, but almost took MYSELF out of the championship game….

8.  a former cook at a CHEESECAKE FACTORY in FLORIDA is suing his ex-employer, claiming that he was constantly subjected to “fondling, genital-grabbing, and simulated sex acts” for OVER  A YEAR… he would’ve quit, but he really loved the cheesecake afterwards…

9.  actress BETTY WHITE has been named the “ASSOCIATED PRESS ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR.”  she had better enjoy this award, because i’m sure next year she’ll be knocked out of the top ranking by some young, hot, sexy, sassy, starlet…probably CLORIS LEACHMAN…

10.  ANNE HATHAWAY says that she beleives that every actor should be prepared to appear naked on screen if the role requires it….let’s pray that JACK BLACK AND ROSIE O’DONNELL  didn’t hear this…

11.  BRAD PITT AND ANGELINA JOLIE say that they plan to spend CHRISTMAS in “some random part of the world where it’s completely quiet.”  i have a suggestion…how about any theater that’s playing her new movie “THE TOURIST?”

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Deep In the back woods of Tennessee, a hillbilly’s wife went into labor in the middle of the night, and the doctor was called out to assist in the delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, “Here. You hold this high so I can see what I am
doing.” Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world.

Whoa there, said the doctor, “Don’t be in such a rush to put that lantern down. I think there’s another one coming.” Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. “Hold that lantern up, don’t set it down there’s another one!” said the doctor.

Within a few minutes he had delivered a third baby.

“No, don’t be in a hurry to put down that lantern, it seems there’s yet another one coming!” cried the doctor.

The redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor, “You reckon it might be the light that’s attractin’ ’em?

HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY EVERYBODY…

1.  ROBERT REDFORD…..just the name sends shivers down some women’s backs…..REDFORD is one of the “hollywood hunks” of the 60’s and 70’s, and we’re going to salute him today…..here’s a couple of photos in ROBERT REDFORD’S early days, the days when women were swooning over him….

and here is ROBERT REDFORD today at the age of 74………….

 

2.  YOUR CHRISTMAS TOY FROM THE 70’S FOR TODAY:

what is it that wobbles but they don’t fall down?  WEEBLES…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qq0OQBdIhsc

3.  saturday night JEANNIE AND I were planning on watching a movie and relaxing.  problem is, JEANNIE fell asleep for the night after five minutes on the couch…i took a 20 minute doze, but woke up to watch tv for a couple of hours, and what did i find?  MY FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME….i have said this many times, and i’ll say it many times yet, “THE WIZARD OF OZ”, is by far, the GREATEST MOVIE EVER….

it’s amazing that after seeing it, probably 60 times or more, i still can watch it and enjoy it…..and in HIGH DEFINITION, it’s absolutely incredible….

4.  late yesterday afternoon, a few of us sat down to watch “ELF” with WILL FERRELL….

i’ve grown very tired of WILL FERRELL, and his “over the top” comedy, but in this role, i absolutely love him…..and it features our favorite line:

“YOU STINK…YOU SMELL LIKE BEEF AND CHEESE…YOU DON’T SMELL LIKE SANTA.”

here’s the video…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txCiZFPsKR8

5.  I LOVE MY WIFE SO MUCH.. yesterday, my beautiful wife, made one of our favorite meals…KUMLA….it’s a NORWEGIAN dish made of potatoes and flour and boiled in ham juice….

JEANNIE’S looked much better than this….she makes incredible kumla….and no disrespect to my GRANDMOTHERS, but JEANNIE’S kumla is by far the best i’ve ever tasted….you have to soak it in butter to make it great….and the best part was this morning….FRYING IT IN BUTTER FOR BREAKFAST..YUMMY…we had TYLER AND KELSEY and MITCHELL, my MOM AND DAD, and my sister KRISTA and her hubby WADE down for kumla and we all feasted and had a great time….

 

6.  here’s the movie shocker of the weekend…the new REESE WITHERSPOON, PAUL RUDD, OWEN WILSON, AND JACK NICHOLSON movie called “HOW DO YOU KNOW?” never made the top five of the weekend!!  unbelievable..i figured it had number one sewed up…it only brought in 7.6 million, which is considered an opening weekend flop…by the way, the number one movie of the weekend, BIG TIME, was “TRON: LEGACY”, which is a sequel to the movie “TRON” back in the 80’s….critics have dogged this movie, but movie goer’s helped it bring in 43.3 million over the weekend, outdistancing second place “YOGI BEAR” by 27 million dollars…..

7.  why is it that bananas have like a TWO DAY WINDOW of quality eating….they go from green to mushy in about 48 hours, so if you don’t eat them in that period, they’re not very good…although, i think that we INTENTIONALLY let them go bad, because then JEANNIE makes her famous “banana chocolate chip muffins” that her three boys absolutely love…

8.  an ANNENBURG survey found that parents now cut off the kids from the internet, as punishment for the way they behave….this is the new way after years of taking their cable away so they couldn’t watch tv….i have the ULTIMATE PUNISHMENT…take both their cable and internet away and make them listen to my MORNING PARTY ON SUNNY 97.7….that’ll teach ’em…..

9.  a college student walking down the street in BOSTON, found two skulls in a cardboard box…he then did what any good citizen should do…he called the police and gave them a “heads-up.”

10.  JAKE GYLLENHAAL reportedly spent 15 thousand dollars on a rare guitar as a birthday gift for his girlfriend TAYLOR SWIFT…JAKE says that he loves everything about TAYLOR, especially her smile….which will change dramatically once she loses her baby teeth…

11.  the movie “YOGI BEAR” is in theaters, with DAN ACKROYD and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE providing the voices of YOGI AND BOO BOO…the movie ending was horrifying for kids…it had SARAH PALIN shooting YOGI from a helicopter….

12.  for the second consecutive year, the word “WHATEVER” was determined to be the post painful and irritating word in the english language….except for the older generation…their most painful and irritating word is “colonoscopy.”

13.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A Canadian bloke is walking down the street with a case of beer under his arm.

His friend Randy stops him and asks, “Hey Dave! Whatcha got that case of beer for?”

“Well, I got it for my wife, you see?” answers Dave.

“Wow,” exclaims Randy, “Great trade.

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERYBODY…
