1.  happy birthday wishes today are going out to former O.J. SIMPSON trial lawyer MARCIA CLARK…she turns 58 today…she has had quite a transformation since the trial days….a little plastic surgery here, a little plastic surgery there…here are three picture of MARCIA CLARK…the first one is the way she looked during the trial, the next are her two transformation pictures…

 

2.  today we’re going to find out whatever happened to actor JAMES COBURN…he starred in over 70 movies and made over 100 television appearances in his 45 year career…he even won an OSCAR for his supporting role as GLENN WHITEHOUSE in the movie “AFFLICTION.” here he is back in the day…

 

in his later years, JAMES COBURN continued to act, and even was pictured on the cover of PAUL MCCARTNEY AND WING’S album “BAND ON THE RUN.”

JAMES COBURN would have been 83 today, if he had not passed away on november 18th, 2002 at the age of 74….he had a heart attack…his ashes were interred at the WESTWOOD VILLAGE MEMORIAL PARK CEMETARY.  here is a marker for him at the cemetary…

and here is JAMES COBURN in his last few years…

 

3.  it’s another salute to the acts coming to the SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FAIR in HURON this weekend….on saturday night, country star RONNIE DUNN will be making an appearance…you probably know him best as the “DUNN” part of BROOKS AND DUNN….they were one of the biggest duos in country music until they broke up a couple of years ago…here’s a video of RONNIE DUNN’S big solo hit “BLEED RED.”

tomorrow and friday we will feature sunday night’s entertainers, CHEAP TRICK and THE LITTLE RIVER BAND…

4.  speaking of the LITTLE RIVER BAND, they are definetly one of my favorites…when they perform, you know every single song they do, including some hits that you have probably forgotten about…by the way, be listening thursday morning, as i am expecting a call from a member of the LITTLE RIVER BAND…

5.  last night we went to the WARNER gym for the WARNER MONARCHS first volleyball game of the season…i think they are going to be very very good again this year…i was told last night that they have the tallest team in class “B” and class “A”, and are tied for tallest team with one team in class “AA.”  their front line was scary when all the tall girls were in…..don’t know if the “tallest team” thing is true or not, but it wouldn’t suprise me…..they are very very big team…and deep, too….should be a fun year…

6.  it’s kind of bittersweet watching our MONARCHS because my niece ERIN is a senior….after she graduates out family members in WARNER will slow down for a couple of years until my great niece get into school…it’s hard to beleive that after this year, all of  my brother’s and my kids will be out of school…man time flies…

7.  i think my beautiful bride and i will be going to see the movie “THE HELP” tonight….

i told JEANNIE that we have to go tonight, because it’s my last time to “pig out” on theater popcorn, because i start my diet tomorrow….remember, you can also still join me on the 90 day challenge…check out the details at  aberdeenchallenge.com

8.  BILL CLINTON has become a vegan and has sworn off meat….so many jokes, so little time…

9.  a new poll found that 77 percent of AMERICANS think that the government should have a cap on how much they are allowed to spend each year…the other 23 percent probably work for the government…

10.  the death of AL QAEDA’S number two is being seen as a major setback for the terrorist group, and it’s causing frustration within, because he was the only one who knows the password to NETFLIX…

11.  doctors are discouraging young people from boxing before age 19…boxing is a sport for adults, and customers of CHUCK E. CHEESE…

12.  a warhouse worker in JOLIET, ILLINOIS, is accused of stealing over $60,000 dollars work of toilet paper…sources say that he completely “WIPED OUT” the warehouse….

13.  SIMON COWELL announced that after he dies, he wants to be frozen….which makes sense, because his heart is already frozen..might as well finish the job after he’s gone…

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

An investment counselor decided to go out on her own. She was shrewd and diligent, so business kept coming in, and pretty soon she realized that she needed an in-house counsel. She began to interview young lawyers.
     “As I’m sure you can understand,” she started off with one of the first applicants, “in a business like this, our personal integrity must be beyond question.” She leaned forward. “Mr. Peterson, are you an ‘honest’ lawyer?”
     “Honest?” replied the job prospect. “Let me tell you something about honest. I’m so honest that my father lent me $15,000 for my education, and I paid back every penny the minute I tried my very first case.”
    “Impressive. And what sort of case was that?”
    “He sued me for the money.”

HAVE A GREAT HUMP DAY..

JAY DEAN
