random thoughts for tuesday may 10th, 2011



1.  the other day when i featured DENNIS WEAVER, we talked about the fact that he played the DAD on “GENTLE BEN.”  well, the son on that show was played by actor CLINT HOWARD….

you probably already know this, but CLINT HOWARD is the brother of RON “OPIE” HOWARD….

CLINT HOWARD has appeared in many many tv shows including “NIGHT GALLERY”, “THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO” and many more…did you know that CLINT HOWARD is the voice of the elephant HATHI’S son, HAITHI, JR. in the classic “THE JUNGLE BOOK?”  plus, he’s the voice of ROO in the classic WINNIE THE POOH movies back in the 60’s…

you can find CLINT HOWARD in dozens of movies in his career, including “BACKDRAFT”, “PARENTHOOD, “COCOON”, “HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS” and many more….here’s CLINT HOWARD today….


2.  ten years ago this week, we lost a great singer…PERRY COMO died may 12th, 2001 at the age of 88…PERRY COMO will go down in history as one of the greatest singers of all time….and women loved his looks too…

PERRY COMO is known for great songs like “SEATTLE”, “PAPA LOVES MAMBO”, “HOT DIGGITY (DOG ZIGGITY BOOM)”, and many more….he was on numerous tv shows as well…including having his own tv show for awhile…

PERRY COMO died peacefully in his sleep, six days shy of his 89th birthday…he is buried in FLORIDA…here’s his gravesite…

here’s PERRY COMO in his later years…

3.  what would a PERRY COMO salute be without some of his music…..here’s my favorite PERRY COMO song, “I LOVE YOU AND DON’T YOU FORGET IT.”


and here’s his classic “SEATTLE.”



4.  okay..we have to have a little fun with PERRY COMO…there was an awesome comedy show back in the 80’s called “SCTV”, which gave the start to many great comedians including JOHN CANDY, RICK MORANIS, DAVE THOMAS, EUGENE LEVY, and others…well, one of the characters that they poked fun at was the mild manner PERRY COMO…they poked fun at his laid back style on stage…check out this video….it’s crazy funny…


5.  yesterday i talked about eating a hamburger while driving by a pile of dead cows…well, it sparked some question on where i saw that….the spot is known as “DEAD COW CORNER,” and is about four miles south of PIERPONT….during the summer, YOU HAVE TO keep your windows rolled up…

6.  one thing i’m really going to miss about MITCHELL being gone this fall is his grilling…HE IS INCREDIBLE….he gets the grill going, and sits out there watching it while sitting in a chair playing his guitar….the kid is so awesome….

7.  NEWT GINGRICH announced that he is running for president…world leaders have already begun to practice saying “NEWT” without giggling….

8.  unemployment is up…however, there are jobs that some employers cannot fill…for example, the position of leader of a terrorist organization…

9.  a new study says that a lot of senior citizens are getting too many colonoscopies…..one elderly woman said, “sometimes you need a little more excitement than just your monday night bingo game.” 

10.  the chernobyl nuclear site is now open for tours….it was the site of the world’s worst meltdown…that is until the LAKERS were pounded by the MAVERICKS sunday night…

11.  last saturday, parents in the PHILIPPINES took their sons who were at least nine year old to a CIRCUMCISION PARTY….the kids said that they absolutely HATE suprise parties…..yeah, i wouldn’t use that particular knife to cut the cake…

12.  CHARLIE SHEEN says he’s planning on revamping his stage show and taking it overseas….wait a minute…no wonder the rest of the world hates us when we send crap like CHARLIE SHEEN and the JERSEY SHORE cast overseas….

13.  CSI’S MARGE HELGENBERGER said that JUSTIN BIEBER was “kind of a brat” on the set, putting his fist thru a cake on the buffet table…then the crew had to throw the cake in the dumpster.  unfortunately it landed on GARY BUSEY and woke him up…

14.  WHITNEY HOUSTON is back in rehab…must have been ONE HELL of a mother’s day…


Everybody on earth dies and goes to heaven.
    God comes and says, “I want the men to make two lines. One line for the men that dominated their women on earth and the other line for the men that were dominated by their women. Also, I want all the women to go with St. Peter.”
    With that said and done, the next time God looked, the women are gone and there are two lines.
    The line of the men that were dominated by their women was 100 miles long, and in the line of men that dominated their women, there was only one man.
    God got mad and said, “You men should be ashamed of yourselves. I created, you in my image and you were all whipped by your mates. Look at the only, one of my sons that stood up and made me proud. Learn from him! Tell them my son, how did you manage to be the only one in this line?”
     And the man replied, “I don’t know, my wife told me to stand here.”
