random thoughts for tuesday january 18th, 2011



DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS bring you today’s daily blog…


1.  the girl i wanted to knock in the mud has a birthday today…actually, not the girl, but the character she played on tv…THE LITTLE GIRL YOU LOVED TO HATE….actress ALISON ARNGRIM turns 49 years old today..who is she?  she played NELLIE OLESON on “LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE.”

she was such a little snot, and a big tattle-tale on the show….but in real life, she’s a very funny, very personable young lady…here’s ALISON ARNGRIM on her 49th birthday today…

2.  well, we had a wonderful wonderful weekend in MINNEAPOLIS…

we had a chance to see the MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES just about upset the ORLANDO MAGIC…typical T-WOLVES..up for three and a half quarters and can’t finish the game…

but BY FAR, the most fun of the weekend was the MINNESOTA WILD game against the VANCOUVER CANUCKS…apparently the CANUCKS are the number one team in the NHL, but the WILD manhandled them 4-0 on sunday evening…

it’s absolutely crazy that we have become such hockey nuts after all these years…..wow….between the ABERDEEN WINGS, and the MINNESOTA WILD, they have us HOOKED…

3.  we had a blast staying with my cousin CARI and her husband PAUL….they have two wonderful children named OLIVIA AND SAWYER….SAWYER became best friends with TYLER AND MITCHELL, and they horsed around and had a blast all weekend long….OLIVIA is a very mature young lady, and was so polite and nice all weekend long…here’s a couple of pictures of them…here’s MITCHELL having fun with SAWYER…

and here’s TYLER with OLIVIA AND SAWYER…

3.  the real reason, and most important reason that we went down to the TWIN CITIES was to see a school that MITCHELL wants to go to after graduating….it’s called the “MINNEAPOLIS MEDIA INSTITUTE”, and i’m very very proud to say that it is definetly where MITCHELL will be going…..MITCH is a music nut.(don’t know where he got that from..ha ha)….this school will teach him about the music business and the recording industry.  here’s a cool trivia statement about the school..it’s the former recording studio for legendary producers JIMMY JAM AND TERRY LEWIS…we stood in the exact studio where JANET JACKSON AND MICHAEL JACKSON recorded in MINNEAPOLIS…man, if those walls could talk….

4.  we ate at a couple of wonderful places in MINNEAPOLIS….one of our favorite places to eat is the BUBBA GUMP SHRIMP COMPANY in the MALL OF AMERICA…

LOVE THEIR FOOD….and their service….

the other place that we ate was somewhere that we have never tried before, and WE LOVED IT…it’s the CHEESECAKE FACTORY…

would LOVE to have one of these in ABERDEEN…


5.  we saw numerous wind turbines on the way to the TWIN CITIES…and many more going up too….which reminded me of a video that i saw recently…there was a video of a buzzard getting way too close to the turbines…check it out….(if you don’t want to see him getting thumped, don’t watch this…)


6.  THIS GUY IS CRAZY GOOD…have you seen the video of the guy who doesn’t use dummies for his ventriliquism act?  check this out…he just straps on a “fake mouth” and he goes to town…


7.  a DETROIT bus driver got suspended for operating a bus with a woman sitting on his lap…that’s the last time he’ll accept career advice from CHARLIE SHEEN…

8.  reaction continues to RICKY GERVAIS hosting of the GOLDEN GLOBES…critics called his jokes cruel and mean spirited…the guy crashed and burned so bad that people are calling him THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS….

9.  a new study finds that beautiful people also tend to have a higher I.Q….no wonder i’m such an idiot….

10.  a PHILADELPHIA man was shot in an argument over french fries….the cops grilled him for an hour under a heat lamp….

11.  NASA reported that one of it’s astronauts was hurt in a bycycle riding accident…..just a little wake up call from something we like to call “GRAVITY.”


As an airplane is about to crash, a female passenger jumps up frantically and announces, “If I’m going to die, I want to die feeling like a woman.”
     She removes all her clothing and asks, “Is there someone on this plane who is man enough to make me feel like a woman?”
     A man stands up, removes his shirt and says, “Here, iron this.”


     A doctor at an insane asylum decided to take his patients to a baseball game. For weeks in advance, he coached his patients to respond to his commands. When the day of the game arrived, everything seemed to be going well.
     As the National Anthem started, the doctor yelled, “Up Nuts!” … and all the patients stood up.
     After the Anthem, he yelled “Down Nuts!” … and they all sat down in their seats.
     After a home run was hit, the doctor yelled, “Cheer Nuts!” … They all broke out in applause and cheered.
     When the umpire made a bad call against the home team, the doctor yelled,”Boo Nuts!” … and they all started booing and cat calling.
     Thinking everything was going well, the doctor decided to go get a beer and a hot dog, leaving his assistant in charge. When he returned, there was a riot in progress. Finding his assistant, the doctor asked, “What in the world happened?”
     The assistant replied, “Everything was going just fine till a vendor passed by and yelled “PEANUTS!”
