LISA WHELCHEL played the stuffy ‘BLAIR’ on the show..after the show, LISA was supposed to do an episode on the show where she loses her virginity…however, LISA became a born again christian at age 10 and refused to do it….she is married to a pastor and is now 48 years old…

and finally, do you remember what big big actor played the role of a handyman on the tv show?  GEORGE CLOONEY…that’s right, GEORGE CLOONEY got his start on tv in 1978, and then in 1979 had a role on “THE FACTS OF LIFE”….here he is back on the show..

nowdays, GEORGE CLOONEY is one of the biggest stars in the world…he’s an actor, producer, director,  and more…GEORGE CLOONEY is now 50 years old…

3.  one of my favorite cities in this country is NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE….i have been there, probably 8-10 times thanks to being in country music radio for 15 years….anyway, i’m thrilled because I GET TO GO BACK…our youth group in HECLA, along with the youth groups in HOUGHTON and FREDERICK are going together to the LCMC national convention over the fourth of july weekend next summer…..at least they will have someone to show them around town….I CAN’T WAIT…

4.  speaking of TENNESSEE, everybody knows that i’m a huge TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS fan…in fact, i’m a huge TENNESSEE LADY VOLS fan….

well, yesterday, VOLS fans and the entire world recieved some bad news….legendary VOLS coach PAT SUMMITT has been diagnose with the early stages of dimentia….she is going to keep coaching, but says she will rely more on her assistant coaches to take care of things….may GOD bless PAT, and we wish her the best…

5.  in case you missed it yesterday on the show, or on FACEBOOK, i gave myself the “MORON OF THE MORNING” yesterday morning.  why?  because on monday, i was driving around town when i noticed that something was falling thru my dashboard and i needed to grab it…so, i put my arm thru the steering wheel to grab it, AS I WAS TURNING the corner….guess what happened?  I LODGED MY ARM IN THE STEERING WHEEL…that’s right..my car was headed into a parked car when i slammed on the break and tried to get my arm out of the steering wheel….when i did, i noticed that i was about six feet from a parked car, and i was pointed north and south when the traffic was going east and west….i calmy backed up, covered my face, and sped off…..as a friend told me…”ONLY YOU, JAY.”

6.  ATTENTION KARDASHIAN FAMILY…your three minutes of fame are over…stay home and get therapy….

7.  an earthquake hit the WASHINGTON, D.C. area yesterday…there were no reports of serious damage…why?  because most of the buildings are sitting on a thick, insulating foundation of government I.O.U.’s…..

8.  authorities are saying that because of the earthquake, the WASHINGTON MONUMENT is leaning a little bit….groundskeepers immediately planted viagra around the base of the monument…

9.  LIBYA’S leader MUAMMAR GADDAFI apparently is okay after rebels took over the city….GADDAFI looked like he was finished and then came back…then they thought he was finished and then came back again….sounds like he could wear number 4 and quarterback the MINNESOTA VIKINGS…

10.  actor RYAN GOSLING was caught on tape breaking up a fight in NEW YORK CITY…the guy risked his life for the sake of humanity…much like a WALMART greeter on black friday…

11.  PETA, or the “people for the ethical treatment of animals” is supposedly launching a porn site….and if you want to know more about it, you’re a whole lot sicker than i am!!!

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully she explained, “It’s the druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone. I had to call multiple times before he would even answer the phone.”
    Immediately, the husband drove downtown to confront the druggist and demand an apology.
    Before he could say more than a word or two, the druggist told him, “Now, just a minute, listen to my side of it. This morning the alarm failed to go off, so I was late getting up. I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car, just to realize that I’d locked the house with both house and car keys inside and had to break a window to get my keys.
    “Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket. Later, when I was about three blocks from the store, I had a flat tire. When I finally got to the store a bunch of people were waiting for me to open up. I got the store opened and started waiting on these people, all the time the darn phone was ringing off the hook.”
    He continued, “Then I had to break a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change, and they spilled all over the floor. I had to get down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels and the phone was still ringing. When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer, which made me stagger back against a showcase with a bunch of perfume bottles on it. Half of them hit the floor and broke. Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up, and I finally got back to answer it. It was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer. And believe me mister, as God is my witness, all I did was tell her.”

QUICKIE TO GO ……

    A husband says to his wife, “What would you do if I won the Lottery?”
    She says, “I’d take my half of the money and leave you.”
    “Excellent,” he replies, “I won 12 bucks, here’s $6. Now pack your bags and get out!”

HAVE A TREMENDOUS WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY..

JAY DEAN
