random thoughts for friday january 28th, 2011





1.  we have a few celebrity birthdays for this weekend…first of all, and this is hard to beleive, actor ALAN ALDA from “M*A*S*H” turns 75 today… did you know that his father, actor ROBERT ALDA also appeared on that show?  yep…here is father and son from the hit tv show…

and here is ALAN ALDA today on his 75th birthday…

2.  actress JUDY NORTON TAYLOR has a birthday on saturday…remember her?  she played MARY ELLEN on “THE WALTON’S”….

JUDY NORTON TAYLOR turns 53 today…and is totally beautiful….

3.  and finally, one of my favorite actors EVER is having a birthday on sunday…GENE HACKMAN turns 81 on sunday…..that can’t be possible….here’s GENE HACKMAN as we remember him from years ago…

and here is GENE HACKMAN today on his 81st birthday…

GENE HACKMAN is either number one or number two on my favorite actor’s scale…the other one battling for top spot is TOMMY LEE JONES….

4.  well, here we go to MINNEAPOLIS….we have a three day sales seminar, but we’re going to have some fun as well…tonight, as i mentioned before, we get to go to a club in MINNEAPOLIS to see a couple of bands….

the band “PARACHUTE” is there…they sing the hit “SHE IS LOVE”, which we play on SUNNY 97.7…

the headline band tonight is “PLAIN WHITE T’S”, and we play a fe of their hits as well including “HEY THERE DELILAH”, “1,2,3,4, 1 LOVE YOU”, and their new hit “RHYTHM OF LOVE.”

should be a blast…i’ll have a critique on wednesday…


5.  man, i don’t know if it’s the weather or what, but i can’t stay awake during the day and evening hours….usually, i can go all day long, skip a nap, and stay up until 10-10:30 at night…but lately, i’m ready for bed at 7pm, and usually need a nap in the afternoon when i get home.  JEANNIE said she’s the same way right now…maybe it’s our hectic schedules, maybe it’s the weather, but chances are, WE’RE JUST OLD….ha ha

6.  a movie called “THE MECHANIC” comes out today starring JASON STATHAM.

i WILL NOT be going to see this movie….JASON STATHAM plays exactly the same character in every movie….geez, i hope he doesn’t read this…he’s huge…he’d probably find me and beat the snot out of me….

7.  the government is replacing the current “color-coded” terror alert system with a new system that offers specific details of what the public should do.  for instance, if things get bad, the message will be, “BEND OVER..PUT YOUR HEAD BETWEEN YOUR LEGS AND KISS YOUR BUTT GOODBYE.”

8.  the mexican military near the ARIZONA border have seized a large, medieval-style CATAPULT that drug dealers hoped to use to fling drugs into AMERICA…which is proof that the drug cartels are huge fans of WILE E. COYOTE…

9.  a five foot godzilla monitor lizard was reported roaming around a CALIFORNIA neighborhood…oooppps…scratch that…it was ROSIE O’DONNELL.

10.  a man in GERMANY called the police to protect him from his wife, who has an uncontrollable demand for sex….wait a minute….wasn’t that THE ROPER’S from “THREE’S COMPANY.”  after hearing that, millions of men screamed, “DUDE ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  WE’D KILL FOR THAT.”

11.  in NEW ZEALAND, an expensive pedigreed cat with a roving eye, disappeared from it’s home, only to show up back at home later CASTRATED…keep that in mind CHARLIE SHEEN…


One fine September day a guy was out raking leaves when he noticed a hearse slowly drive by. Following the first hearse was a second hearse, which was followed by a man walking solemnly along, followed by a dog and then about 200 men walking in single file.
    Intrigued, Bill went up to the man following the second hearse and asked him who was in the first hearse.
    “My wife,” the man replied.
    “I’m sorry,” said Bill. “What happened to her?”
    “My dog bit her and she died.”
     Bill then asked the man who was in the second hearse. The man replied, “My mother-in-law. My dog bit her and she died as well.”
     Bill thought about this for a while. He finally asked the man, “Can I borrow your dog?”
     To which the man replied, “Get in line.”
