1.  happy birthday wishes are going out today to, among others, KARL SLOVER, who appeared in my favorite movie of all time, “THE WIZARD OF OZ.”…KARL played the first trumpet player, one of the soldiers, and one of the sleeping babies….

KARL SLOVER is now 93 years old….here he is today…

KARL SLOVER is one of four remaining munchkins from the hit movie….the others are JERRY MAREN, RUTH ROBINSON DUCCINI, and a beautiful woman who made an appearance in ABERDEEN, MARGARET PELLEGRINI….

here’s JERRY MAREN recently….he’s now 91 years old…

MARGARET PELLEGRINI appeared as one of the “flower pot” girls…she is now 87…relatively young, compared to others…

and RUTH ROBINSON DUCCINI is now 93…she is pictured here on the left, with MARGARET PELLEGRINI and MEINHARDT RAABE, who also appeared in ABERDEEN..he is now deceased….he died april 10th, 2010 at the age of 94…ironically, he played THE CORONER…

 

2.  our second birthday today is a milestone…author and comedian FANNY FLAGG turns 70 today….you probably remember her from her regular stint on “MATCH GAME.”

she also is an author of a very famous book, that became a very famous movie…

i have to say that the movie “FRIED GREEN TOMATOES” wasn’t bad….

here’s FANNY FLAGG today on her 70th birthday…

 

3.  our third birthday today is actor JOSEPH MAZZELLO who turns 28 today…don’t remember him?  oh, you will…

he played the young boy in the awesome movie “RADIO FLYER.”

he played one of the kids in the dinosaur movie “JURASSIC PARK.”

but my favorite role that JOSEPH had was playing alongside IAN MICHAEL SMITH in the movie “SIMON BIRCH.”

if you have never ever seen this movie, find it and watch it…it is so so so good and so inspirational….

here is JOSEPH MAZZELLO today on his 28th birthday…

 

4.  dear facebook….LEAVE CRAP ALONE….all i like to do is visit with my friends and family on your site…i don’t want to have to take a class at NSU to find out how to run you guys…i turn on my computer this morning, and all kinds of new things are added….DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING…PUT IT BACK TO WHERE IT WAS….KEEP YOUR GRUBBY FINGERS OFF OF THE SITE….yes facebook, sometimes things are better left untouched…..

sincerely yours,

a disgruntled facebook fan

 

5.  i went to SIMMONS SCHOOL last night to watch my beautiful wife JEANNIE play volleyball…i had a blast…i wouldn’t want to be on the other side of the net when some of those ladies hit..anyway, i sat on the bleachers next to a beautiful young lady named BROOKLYN…we had a blast laughing and giggling like little schoolgirls….i even taught her a few things to do to rebel against her mom, who is a friend of mine…then i told her mom what i did, and she said, “don’t worry, i’m REALLY not worred about her getting away with stuff.”  SORRY BROOKLYN…HA HA

6.  what the hell is wrong with these parents that put their children in the tv show “TODDLER’S AND TIARA’S?”  there’s NO REASON that a child should have to live up to this image at their young age…

some of the moms on this show are psycho….i can’t believe the pressure they are putting on these poor girls…what kind of standards are these kids going to put on themselves all their lives?  what happens when they are used to being “beautiful” and “skinny” but end up putting on some weight, like we all do when we get older….my heart breaks for these little girls, and I WILL NOT, I REPEAT, WILL NOT WATCH THIS STUPID SHOW…

7.  one of this years $500,000 dollar MCARTHUR GENIUS GRANTS went to a RADIO SHOW HOST…he must have invented a revolutionary new fart sound effect…..and by the way, the “genius” award, didn’t come to me…..obviously…

8.  this is weird, but true…sperm banks are no longer accepting “reheaded donors”, because so few women want a redheaded baby….and they are afraid that comedian CARROT TOP was visiting the banks, and NOBODY wants a kid that looks like that….

9.  TENNESSEE congressman PHIL ROE saved a man’s life with CPR in a NORTH CAROLINA airport yesterday…and there you have it folks…OUR NEW HEALTH CARE PLAN…..

10.  FBI statistics show that FLINT, MICHIGAN, was the most violent U.S. city in 2010….and the council members don’t like it….the FLINT city council said that they would KILL to have someone else finish first…

11.  CHARLIE SHEEN is reportedly near a deal to settle his “unfair” firing from ‘TWO AND A HALF MEN.”  i am going to HOLLYWOOD folks….where else can i go where i can get drunk, do drugs, hire hookers, threaten my wife, go to jail, end up in rehab, slander my boss, and STILL get paid $25 million dollars because all of that is no reason to fire somebody….CRIPES…

12.  DAVID ARQUETTE is donating his $50,000 dollar “DANCING WITH THE STARS” gift basket to HABITAT FOR HUMANITY…that’s because, with his career in the tank, he may need a place to live soon…

13.  TMZ is reporting that JOHN TRAVOLTA’S vintage 1970 mercedes benz has been stolen…DAMN U LINDSAY LOHAN…

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

Once upon a time there was a stork family: papa stork, mama stork and baby stork. One evening papa stork didn’t show up for dinner. Mama stork and baby stork left the food out for him but he didn’t come home at all that night.
     When papa stork finally did come home the next day, baby stork asked, “Papa stork, where were you last night?”
     “Out making a young couple very happy,” replied papa stork.
     Several weeks later, mama stork was late making dinner. Baby stork and papa stork waited a while, and then gave up and ordered pizza. Mama stork didn’t come home until late the next morning.
     When mama stork did come in, baby stork asked “Mama stork, where were you last night?”
     “Out making a young couple very happy,” replied mama stork.
     Later in the fall, baby stork was late for dinner. Papa stork and mama stork were worried. Their anxiety increased when baby stork still wasn’t home by sunset. They both waited up late for baby stork but he didn’t come in until early in the morning. His feathers were rumpled and unkempt.
     Papa stork barked, “Where were you baby stork?” as his tired son dragged himself over the threshold.
     “Out scaring the crap out of college students,” replied baby stork.

HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY EVERYBODY…

JAY DEAN
