KILLING TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE, SO TO SPEAK…

 

I HOPE YOU ALL HAD A GREAT WEEKEND…AND I HOPE ALL YOU MOMS HAD A BLESSED MOTHER’S DAY…

 

1.  we have a couple of celebrity birthdays today…we’ll start with the ladies first….actress CANDICE BERGEN is 65 today…wow….CANDICE is still beautiful, but was quite the beauty in her early years, too….

CANDICE is mostly known for her 80’s hit tv show “MURPHY BROWN.”  here’s a cast photo….

by the way, CANDICE BERGEN won five EMMY AWARDS, and two GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS for her portray as MURPHY BROWN…CANDICE is also known for being on the tv show ‘BOSTON LEGAL.’  here she is recently with actor JOHN LAROQUETTE…

 

2.  veteran “60 MINUTES” star MIKE WALLACE turns 93 today…yep…93…and still looking darn good, if i might say….here’s MIKE WALLACE back in his early days…i beleive with HARRY REASONER…

here’s MIKE WALLACE recently…I WANT THAT JACKET…NOT…

 

3.  in our “whatever happened to” file for today, we find out where JACK LORD is today…JACK LORD was the star of the tv show “HAWAII FIVE-O”, and is the guy who always said, “BOOK EM- DANNO…”   here’s JACK LORD back in his early days….he counts as one of his fans, the king of music, ELVIS PRESLEY….

JACK LORD continued to act and make public appearances up until his death in 1998 due to congestive heart failure.  JACK spent his last few years suffering from alzheimer’s….and appropriately enough, JACK LORD died in HONOLULU, HAWAII….he was 77, and left an estate of 77 million dollars behind….and his entire estate went to charities after his wife died in 2005….here’s JACK LORD a few years before he died….

 

4.  i’ll tell you what the meaning of gross is….saturday i was driving down the road to PIERPONT chewing on a hamburger, when i came up to a pile of dead cows…..yep, that kind of takes the steam out of eating a hamburger at that time…

5.  as a sports fan, i couldn’t be happier this morning now that the LOS ANGELES LAKERS have made an early exit from the playoffs…the DALLAS MAVERICKS beat the LAKERS  four games to zero, to advance….it looks like LAKER’S coach PHIL JACKSON coached his last game yesterday…i don’t know if you knew this, but PHIL JACKSON is a WILLISTON, NORTH DAKOTA native who went to school at the UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA in GRAND FORKS….

6.  there’s a possibility of severe weather tonight in our area…i love severe weather as long as it doesn’t cause damage…i’m a weather freak…i stand out in my garage watching it….what a nerd, huh?

7.  AL QUAIDA is warning AMERICANS who are celebrating OSAMA BIN LADEN’S death, that our laughter will soon mix with tears…and they are correct….because we’ve all laughed until we cried…

8.  by the way, a large number of MUSLIMS beleive that BIN LADEN is still alive…i’m not suprised since the name “OSAMA” is arabic for “ELVIS.” 

9.  PAUL MCCARTNEY, who recently shelled out 50 million dollars to divorce HEATHER MILLS, has announced his engagement to girlfriend, NANCY SHEVELL…MCCARTNEY thought, “what the hell…i think i have 50 million in my sofa cushions..”  plus PAUL has already contacted RINGO STARR to make sure he’s available to park cars that day…..

10.  a campaign to remove DONALD TRUMP from the pace car at this year’s INDY 500 is growing…that’s because there’s a major rule that there are no tools allowed in the driver’s seat…

11.  two of this weekend’s biggest movies were “THOR” and MEL GIBSON’S movie “BEAVER.”  MEL plays a guy with emotional problems…so, that’s a stretch….

12.  there’s a new BARRY MANILOW cd coming out next month….sources can’t beleive that AL QAEDA is launching a revenge attack so soon…

13.  JOKE OF THE DAY:  (and a darn funny one, too)

did you hear that bars are now serving a drink called “THE BIN LADEN?”  it consists of TWO SHOTS AND A SPLASH OF WATER….ha ha ha ha ha

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY EVERYBODY….

JAY DEAN
