1.  happy birthday wishes are going out to tv veteran DWAYNE HICKMAN who played “DOBIE GILLIS.”  he turns 77 today….you probably remember the show…here is DOBIE with co-star BOB DENVER, of “GILLIGAN’S ISLAND” fame…

5.  one of the features on FACEBOOK is an app where people can answer questions about their friends on FACEBOOK…here are some funny questions that people answered about me….by the way, i don’t know who answered these, because you have to win “coins” to find out, and i’m not that curious..ha ha

**do you think jay dean has ever prank phone called someone? they answered “NO.”  (wrong…i’ve done it many many MANY times….ha ha)

**do you think jay dean likes “chick flicks”?  they answered NO….(wrong again…i do like them…depending on how stupid they are.)

**do you think jay dean is cute?  they answered “NO.”  (another one right)

and finally…

**do you think jay dean ever messed around at work?  they answered “NO.”  (wrong…actually the question would have been easier if you would have asked “does jay dean actually do any work while at work?”  the answer is a resounding NO….)

6.  every time i have bible study with my HECLA and HOUGHTON ladies who are in retirement homes in ABERDEEN, i learn something…last night we talked about NOAH and the floods…because of what’s going on here today….i didn’t know that NOAH was also a girl’s name in the bible….there was a guy that had no sons, and five daughters, and one of them was named NOAH…i didn’t feel so stupid, because not one woman there knew it…..and trust me, these ladies know A TON about the bible…
