random thoughts for thursday august 11th, 2011


1.  today we are going to salute one of the funniest sitcoms ever…BEWITCHED.

…remember the theme song?


BEWITCHED starred ELIZABETH MONTGOMERY as “SAMANTHA”, AGNES MOORHEAD as her bothersome mother “ENDORA”, DAVID WHITE as the boss, LARRY TATE, DIANE AND ERIN MURPHY who both played “TABITHA”, GREG AND DAVID LAWRENCE, who both played the son “ADAM”, and two different DARREN’S….and nobody noticed…ha ha…..DICK YORK and DICK SARGENT both played DARRIN on the show…..

BEWITCHED ran from 1964-1972….here are some photos of the cast…

so, where are they now?

the beautiful ELIZABETH MONTGOMERY continued to star in tv shows and mostly tv movies…but she was always typecast as “SAMANTHA.”  ELIZABETH died in 1995 at the age of 62 from colorectal cancer.

actor DICK YORK, who played the first DARRIN, died in 1992 at the age of 63 due to complications from emphysema.  although he looked a lot older before his death…

actor DICK SARGENT who played DARRIN number two, died in 1994 at the age of 64, due to prostate cancer…

actor DAVID WHITE, who played LARRY TATE, died in 1990 at the age of 74 from a heart attack…


actresses ERIN AND DIANE MURPHY played the dual role of TABITHA…although, ERIN played her more in the role….

they are now my age…47 years old…ERIN is super super hot…

here’s ERIN AND DIANE together…

this one is kind of confusing…actors GREG AND DAVID LAWRENCE played “ADAM” the youngest son, and brother of TABITHA..

they both claimed to be actor TONY CURTIS’ sons, but TONY never claimed them….they both changed their names to MANDEL, because that was there adopted parents names….DAVID actually late changed his name to DAVE ANTHONY….got that?

here they are today…

2.  singer JOE JACKSON turns 57 today…no, not MICHAEL JACKSON’S dad…this is the BRITISH pop star who had a bunch of hits, mainly in the 80’s….remember his albums?

JOE JACKSON tours to this date.  here he is at 57…

4.  i suppose we had better do a couple of JOE JACKSON songs so you can remember him properly…

here’s “IS SHE REALLY GOING OUT WITH HIM?” this is from a 2003 tv appearance…


and here’s my favorite JOE JACKSON song…”BREAKING US IN TWO”…


5.  my brother TREVOR and I went to see “RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES” last night….it was pretty good….didn’t get to the action of ransacking the city until late in the movie, but it was kind of fun seeing how the whole story started….i would recommend this movie if you like the “PLANET OF THE APES” movies from yesteryear…

6.  i’m trying to start a new path of working out during the day…i got up this morning at 3:20 and went walking around WARNER…what keeps me motivated to walk is my I-POD full of PRAISE MUSIC and other CHRISTIAN MUSIC…..i hope i can keep this up..i would like to lose 30 pounds…by the way, i drank a SLIM FAST this morning…i do beleive it’s the last one i will drink…

7.  JON CRYER said that the funeral of CHARLIE SHEEN’S character on “TWO AND A HALF MEN’ will bring tears, but they’ll be “tears of laughter.”  much like if the producers attended CHARLIE’S actual funeral….

8.  singer MARC ANTHONY has reportedly been offered 14 million dollars to write a tell-all book about his marriage to JENNIFER LOPEZ…the first chapter will be called “how i married someone more famous than me so i could get a book deal.”

9.  the KARDASHIAN sisters have announced that they’ve written a novel together…this will make them the first authors ever to have written more books than they have actually read…….

10.  a mostly naked statue of JUSTIN BIEBER and SELENA GOMEZ will be displayed in DALLAS…the state is made of bronze, which is a material that is a little less stiff than JUSTIN’S hair….

11.  a new study finds that older women with sleep apnea may be more likely to develop dementia…which may explain why MERYL STREEP just signed on to star in a movie with LARRY THE CABLE GUY…


Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven.
When they get there, St. Peter says, “We only have one rule here in heaven: don’t step on the ducks!”
So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.
Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.
St. Peter chains them together and says, “Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!”
The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn’t miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.
The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps.
She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on … very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin.
St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.
The woman remarks, “I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?”
The guy says, “I don’t know about you, but I stepped on a duck!”
