UGH…IT’S MONDAY….

 

YOUR DAILY BLOG IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE WONDERFUL FOLKS AT DISCOUNT VAC AND DAKOTA HOT TUBS, BOTH OF ABERDEEN….

1.  we have a few celebrity birthdays to mark today. the first one is veteran actor ERNEST BORGNINE who is 94 years old today…and may i say, a very young looking 94….here’s ERNEST BORGNINE from years past, even a picture of him on “MCHALE’S NAVY.”

and here’s ERNEST BORGNINE looking awfully good at 94…heck, i hope i look this good at 75….

2.  one of the four surviving munchkins from “THE WIZARD OF OZ” has a birthday…JERRY MAREN, who played one of the munchkins from the “LOLLIPOP GUILD,” turns 91 today..here he is from my favorite movie…he’s the guy in the middle…

and here is JERRY MAREN today at 91………….

3.  and this one should make you feel old…legendary singer NEIL DIAMOND turns SEVENTY TODAY….yes, 70……..here’s NEIL DIAMOND back when he was a heartthrob to women everywhere….

and here’s NEIL DIAMOND today on his 70th birthday…still out there performing and making records….umm..i mean cd’s…ha ha

4.  what would NEIL DIAMOND’S birthday be without a couple of songs…

5.  is it just me, or does it seem like bananas go from green to brown in a little over a day…it seems like there’s a one day window to eat them in perfect condition…

6.  okay guys, don’t think less of me, but saturday night, i went to see NATALIE PORTMAN in “BLACK SWAN.” and yes, i went all by myself to see a ballet movie…

but it was much more than that….great movie…it’s a movie where you think you have it all figured out and then at the end, BOOM, you were wrong…there are a couple of sex scenes in this movie that are pretty heavy…..keep that in mind if you’re going to see it.   NATALIE PORTMAN should win an oscar for best female performance, or she should at least be nominated….

7.  fitness guru and power juicer founder, JACK LALANNE died yesterday at the age of 96…..he supposedly worked out every day, if not a few times a day, even up to around his death…..here’s JACK LALANNE back in his really buff days…

and here he is in his 90’s looking awfully darn fit….

8.  GEORGE CLOONEY has contracted malaria following his trip to SUDAN, but is expected to fully recover…GEORGE suffered fever, chills, sweating, and vomiting…pretty much the same symptoms as everyone who watched his movie “THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS.”

9.  “RADAR ONLINE” reports that the nurse who accused LINDSAY LOHAN of battery, may have been offered $25,000 dollars for agreeing not to testify…sources say the money was offered “under the table”, which is where LINDSAY was lying after a night out…

10.  ROGER EBERT will appear on his new show “EBERT PRESENTS AT THE MOVIES” hiding his facial surgery with a silicone prosthesis….so his appearance will be mostly silicone….on wait, that’s PAMELA ANDERSON….

11.  well, we finally know who’s in the super bowl…it’s the GREEN BAY PACKERS VS. THE PITTSBURGH STEELERS….the super bowl…you know the super bowl….that football game that comes on between the commercials…

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Three men were sitting in a bar talking about how whipped they had their wives.

The first two kept bragging about how they could get their wives to do anything.

They looked at the third man and he said, “I have my wife so whipped that the other day I had her crawling towards me on her hands and knees.”

Both of the other men were very impressed and asked him how he had managed that.

The man replied, “Well, I was lying under the bed and she crawled over and said, “Come out and fight like a man!”.

 HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERYBODY…

JAY DEAN
