2.  the tv show ‘THE FACTS OF LIFE” debuted on this date in 1979….it was a pretty good show..

here’s the theme from the show…

http://youtu.be/k_GxXRbSFDg

i watched it because of a massive crush on NANCY MCKEON who played “JO.”  here’s a photo of the girls from the show when it debuted on this date in 1979…

and now we’re going to find out what the cast is doing today…

first of all, veteran actress CHARLOTTE RAE played the house master MRS. GARRETT…remember that “THE FACTS OF LIFE” was a spinoff of “DIFFERENT STROKES.”  she played the maid and nanny on the tv show….CHARLOTTE RAE is 85 years old now…

alright, here’s my girl…NANCY MCKEON played the tomboy “JO” on the show….i was IN LOVE with her…..she has been acting for a long time, and did you know that actor PHILLIP MCKEON who played “TOMMY” on “ALICE” is her real life brother?

here’s NANCY today, STILL SUPER HOT at the age of 45…

up next is actress KIM FIELDS who played “TOOTIE” on the show..did you know that KIM got her start on a commercial for MRS. BUTTERWORTH?  i found it..check it out…

http://youtu.be/l7pnDmI_mqg

KIM FIELDS is now 42 years old…

MINDY COHN played the funny girl “NATALIE” on the show…after the show she played the voice of VELMA on “WHAT’S NEW SCOOBY DOO”…she was actually nominated for a daytime EMMY award for the role…MINDY COHN is now 45….

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..

6.  i have good news and bad news…the good news is, that when our son MITCHELL leaves the house, JEANNIE AND I won’t be alone….the bad news is:  I THINK WE HAVE A GIRL GHOST….i saw her again last night around 3am…i think all three of us have now seen her…she doesn’t scare us, and doesn’t bother us, but yet it’s quite unnerving when i see her….the first time i saw her was when i was lying on the couch watching tv a couple of years ago, and i opened my eyes and she was standing in the living room as real as anything…she just stared at me and then disappeared….she has dark long, ponytail hair, and black glasses..probably 10 years old?  i don’t know…the boys named her “SADIE.”  hopefully she gets bored and moves on somewhere else….

7.  i can’t wait for this weekend…IT’S MY FIRST FANTASY FOOTBALL DRAFT DAY…this sunday at 5:00, we’ll have my families football draft, with ten teams playing….SAMANTHA, who is marrying my nephew MICHAEL is the only girl in our league, so i hope she has thick skin…ha ha

9.  volkswagen has created a “zero-emissions” concept vehicle that carries only one passenger….umm…don’t we have that already?  it’s called  A BICYCLE….

10.  people are starting to wonder who will lead LIBYA in the future….let’s see…GADDAFI had women….lots of booze….and and money whenever he needed it…so, the obvious replacement would be ASHTON KUTCHER….

11.  vice president JOE BIDEN told officials in CHINA that the UNITED STATES is good for it’s debt…he’s right you know…few countries are better at debt than we are!!!

12.  LINDSAY LOHAN is being accused of trying to upstage KIM KARDASHIAN at KIM’S wedding this past weekend…apparently LINDSAY wore  a white dress to the wedding…in her defense, it was the only dress she could find that had DEEP POCKETS…

13.  it’s tuesday…and KIM KARDASHIAN IS STILL MARRIED…

14.  KIM’S wedding is expected to make her millions….but it was also costly, as well..the biggest cost?  the open bar…because LINDSAY LOHAN and MEL GIBSON never left it…..

15.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A woman, calling a local hospital, said, “Hello, I’d like to talk with the person who gives the information regarding your patients. I’d like to find out if the patient is getting better, or doing as expected, or is getting worse.”
     The voice on the other end of the line said, “What is the patient’s name and room number?”
     She said, “Sarah Finkel, in Room 302 …”
     “I will connect you with the nursing station.”
     “3-A Nursing Station. How can I help You?”
     “I would like to know the condition of Sarah Finkel in Room 302.”
     “Just a moment. Let me look at her records. Oh, yes. Mrs. Finkel is doing very well. In fact, she’s had two full meals, her blood pressure is fine, her blood work just came back as normal, she’s going to be taken off the heart monitor in a couple of hours and if she continues this improvement, Dr. Cohen is going to send her home Tuesday at twelve o’ clock.”
     The woman said, “Thank God! That’s wonderful! Oh! that’s fantastic, that’s wonderful news!”
     The nurse said, “From your enthusiasm, I take it you must be a close family member or a very close friend!”
     “Not exactly, I’m Sarah Finkel in 302! Nobody here tells me anything!!!”

    Ben searches diligently through the thick underbrush and suddenly he spots something shiny. As he gets closer, he realizes that the shiny object is in fact an 8-iron in the hands of a skeleton lying near an old golf ball.
    Ben excitedly calls out to his golfing partner: “Hey Thomas, come here, I got big trouble down here.”
    Thomas comes running over to the edge of the ravine and calls out: “What`s the matter Ben?”
    Ben shouts back in a nervous voice: “Throw me my 7-iron! Looks like you can`t get out of here with an 8-iron.”

1.  happy birthday wishes are going out this sunday to actress KIM CATTRALL…she will turn 55..that’s right double nickels for KIM….KIM has been around for a long long time…most people know her from “SEX AND THE CITY.”  but she got her start in movies like “MANNEQUIN”, and “PORKY’S.” 

i actually didn’t realize until this morning that KIM played in “PORKY’S.”  i’ve seen the movie dozens of times and didn’t realize it was her…she played the female gym class teacher who was a “howler.” 

she starred with ANDREW MCCARTHY in the movie “MANNEQUIN”, about a store front mannequin that comes to life…

let’s see what KIM CATTRALL looks like today a couple of days before her 55th birthday…still gorgeous…

 

2.  what about her “MANNEQUIN” co-star ANDREW MCCARTHY?  well, he’s still acting after being in the business for a few decades now…

you may remember him as one of the stars of “WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S.”

ANDREW MCCARTHY is now 48 years old…here he is today..

 

3.  well, here comes my reviews of night one of the brown county fair…(REMEMBER, THIS IS ONLY ONE MAN’S OPINION.)

first of all, JOHN ANDERSON…really really good….by far the best part of the night….wish he would have played another hour!!  JOHN ANDERSON has a voice that stands out…you will always know it’s him…he wowed the crowd with hits like “SEMINOLE WIND”, “BLACK SHEEP OF THE FAMILY”, and of course, “SWINGIN’.’

as far as LEANN RIMES goes, she, in my opinion, was a MAJOR disappointment…i have met her before, but had never seen her “live” show…and after last night, i hope to never see it again…SHE TALKED way way way way way too much….she did TOO MANY slow songs…..and didn’t do a many of her hits in the first 45 minute of the show….we left after 40 minutes…very disappointed….

don’t get me wrong, she has an INCREDIBLE voice…one of the best voices in any form of music….but her “live” show needs to be fine tuned for outdoors…her show would have been perfect for the WASHINGTON PAVILLION in SIOUX FALLS, or the JOHNSON FINE ARTS CENTER, here in ABERDEEN…

4.  i walked over to TUBBY’S last night to have another tubby burger, but i got sidetracked at the business in front of them….so, i tried the italian sausage with grilled onions and peppers…OUTSTANDING….plus i HAD to grab some of those deep fried potato chips….they are to die for….

5.  is there anything scarier for a kid than getting on a ride at the fair where you CRAWL INTO  A BEAR’S STOMACH?  luckily the bears are smiling…ha ha…..

6.  new movies this weekend…

CONAN THE BARBARIAN…nope…not going to see it…

FRIGHT NIGHT looks good….it’s kind of a remake of the 80’s FRIGHT NIGHTmovie starring RODDY MCDOWALL…remember the 80’s movie?

 

the new version looks a heck of a lot scarier…

 

7.  text messaging is still the most popular smartphone app…it’s recommended by four of five auto body shops…

8.  a 61 year old man is suing NEW YORK because he was fired as a lifeguard when he refused to wear a speedo during his annual swim test….as far as i’m concerned, any 61 year old man who refuses to wear a speedo IS A HERO….

9.  a jihadist made a death threat to DAVID LETTERMAN..it was the worst top ten list ever…..

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Lenora’s husband has been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet his faithful wife stays by his bedside day and night.
    One night, he comes to and motions for her to come closer. He says, “My Lenora, you have been with me through all the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what, Lenora?”
    “What Dear?” she asked gently.
    “I think you’re bad luck.”

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND EVERYBODY…

and here she is today on her 84th birthday……

 

3. it’s a milestone birthday today for ROBERT REDFORD…this legendary actor turns 75 today…..it’s kind of weird to watch our favorite big screen people approach and pass 80, but as they say, “time doesn’t stop for anyone.”

here are a couple of older pictures of ROBERT REDFORD…the first one is from one of my all time favorite films…..it’s REDFORD and PAUL NEWMAN in “BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KID.”

those two were SO SO SO SO good on the big screen….

HAPPY 75TH ROBERT!!!  here he is in the recent couple of years…

 

4.  it’s BROWN COUNTY FAIR TIME, BABY…i’m not excited about any other night of entertainment, other than tonight…i would love to see THE BELLAMY BROTHERS saturday night, but i’ve seen them a half dozen times…LOVE THEM THOUGH…but tonight, i’m so so so excited to see JOHN ANDERSON….love his stuff…remember him?

everybody knows this song…

http://youtu.be/07_rnlBezQg

and how you you not love LEANN RIMES?  she’s had so many great hits, but i think i love this one the most…

http://youtu.be/hcCBjMtm1q4

 

5.  and of course, in typical fashion, the one night i’m excited about brings a good chance of SEVERE WEATHER this afternoon and tonight….i will tell you one thing for sure…if severe weather and winds hit, I WILL GET THE HELL AWAY FROM THE STAGE IMMEDIATELY…

6.  JAY’S GOALS FOR TODAY:

a:  keep breathing

b:  smile a lot

c: make someone’s day

d: HAVE ANOTHER TUBBY BURGER…

7.  lesson learned last night…the TREMENDOUS TWELVE at PERKIN’S is not such a good idea at 7:30 in the evening…WOW..i jam packed myself with pancakes, sausage, eggs, and hash browns, and had to walk very fast when i got home just to feel a little better…dumb move…

8.  one of PRESIDENT OBAMA’S secret service agents was arrested for drunk driving in IOWA…the guy started drinking heavily when he realized that someday he could be assigned to take a bullet for MICHELE BACHMANN….

9.  police in SPOKANE, WASHINGTON arrested a 54 year old man who was fishing in a lake completely nude…when he got out of the water the police started laughing, and the guy yelled, “HEY, GIVE ME A BREAK, I WAS IN COLD WATER!!”

10.  AUSTRALIAN researchers say that for every hour of tv a  person watches after age 25, their life is shortened by 22 minutes…unless you are watching “JERSEY SHORE.”  in that case you already don’t have a life…

11.  a UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI booster has sparked an investigation by claiming that he gave football players cash, and FOUND AND PAID FOR THEIR PROSTITUTES…i remember the good ole days when we used to have to find and pay for OUR OWN prostitutes….

12.  this fall, COKE will debut a limited edition design for cans of DIET COKE…and it will be nice to see a well dressed can that isn’t associated with any KARDASHIANS…

13.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Two men in a pickup truck drove into a lumber yard.
One of them walked in the office and said, “We need some four-by-twos.”
The clerk asked, “You mean two-by-fours, don’t you?”
The man said, “I’ll go check,” and went back to the truck.
He returned and said, “Yeah, I meant two-by-four.”
“All right. How long do you need them?”
The customer paused for a minute and said, “I’d better go check.”
After a while, the customer returned to the office and said, “A long time. We’re gonna build a house.”

HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY EVERYBODY…SAY “HI” WHEN YOU SEE ME AT THE BROWN COUNTY FAIR…
