5.  the COMEDY CENTRAL roast of CHARLIE SHEEN is coming up on tv shortly…they recorded it the other night…my favorite line from the roast?  it came from WILLIAM SHATNER who said, “YOU’RE 46, I’M 80…HOW COME WE LOOK LIKE WE WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL TOGETHER?”  funny stuff..i have a feeling this roast is going to be raunchy but very very funny….

6.  last night my church organists, PAT AND JANET and I, got together to pick hymns for our churches for the next couple of months…I LOVED IT…it’s so fun to look thru the hymnals and find songs that people will love to sing…some of them i had forgotten about because we haven’t sung them for a long time…can’t wait…

8.  city and school officials in the DALLAS area, recently went door to door looking for high school dropouts….wow, the DALLAS COWBOYS are going to great lengths to replace their quarterback TONY ROMO…

9.  a study of 60 random four year olds found that watching just nine minutes of “SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS” shortened thier attention spans and made them do worse on test…however, there is good news…they all scored 100 percent when asked “WHO LIVES IN A PINEAPPLE UNDER THE SEA?”

10.  speaking of attention span….i have always felt that…………………………………………………………………….

11.  MICHAEL JACKSON’S brother JERMAINE says that his family was planning to help MICHAEL flee out of the country if he was found guilty of child molestation…..they wanted MICHAEL to wear a disguise, but they couldn’t find a fake nose that looked as fake as the real/fake nose he already had….

14.  have you seen the picture of KATHY GRIFFIN in her bra and panties strutting in her hotel room to get a reaction from a window washer?  yuck…even the KARDASHIANS thought it was tacky….

15.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

     An elderly gentleman of 85 feared his wife was getting hard of hearing. So one day he called her doctor to make an appointment to have her hearing checked. The Doctor made an appointment for a hearing test in two weeks, and says meanwhile there’s a simple informal test the husband could do to give the doctor some idea of the state of her problem.
     ‘Here’s what you do,” said the doctor, “start out about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”
    That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he’s in the living room. He says to himself, “I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.”
    Then in a normal tone he asks, ‘Honey, what’s for supper?”
    No response.
    So the husband moved to the other end of the room, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, “Honey, what’s for supper?”
    Still no response.
    Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, “Honey, what’s for supper?”
    Again he gets no response. So he walks up to the kitchen door, only 10 feet away.
    “Honey, what’s for supper?”
    Again there is no response. So he walks right up behind her.
    “Honey, what’s for supper?”
     And the wife says, “Damn it Earl, for the fifth time, CHICKEN!”

HAVE A TREMENDOUS TUESDAY EVERYBODY…
