1.  happy birthday wishes are going out today to actress ANNIE POTTS…she is 59 today..yep…knockin’ on the door to 60!!!

ANNIE has been in a lot of great roles, including the movie “GHOSTBUSTERS.”

of course, her biggest role was on “DESIGNING WOMEN.” she’s leaning on her arm in the front….

ANNIE also is the voice of “BO PEEP” in all of the “TOY STORY” movies…

2.  actor RICHARD DREYFUSS will turn 64 on saturday…we best remember him from the incredibly suspenseful movie “JAWS.”  here is is with ROBERT SHAW on the left, ROY SCHEIDER in the middle, and then RICHARD DREYFUSS….

he also had great roles in the movies “CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, ” “MR. HOLLAND’S OPUS,” and my favorite role of his, as the psychiatrist  taking care of BILL MURRAY’S character in “WHAT ABOUT BOB?”

and don’t forget “AMERICAN GRAFFITI.”

4.  here’s my favorite JEFFERSON STARSHIP song, “MIRACLES.”




our beloved ABERDEEN WINGS hockey team ROCKED the MINOT MINOTAURS  last night 5-0….and trust me on this, i think the WINGS have a brand new rival…man, these guys went at it all last night, and you could see them trashtalking and nailing each other to the wall BIG TIME….should be a fun series to watch….last year it was BISMARCK that was our big rivals, this year i think MINOT takes over that position…..

6.  YAY!! IT’S “KANSAS” DAY!!!!  they are playing tonight at the DAKOTA MAGIC CASINO near HANKINSON, and TYLER, MITCHELL, AND I will be there….

here’s one more video…here’s their classic “CARRY ON MY WAYWARD SON.”


7.  new research shows what candy you give out for halloween reflects who you are and what you like….for example, if you give out granola bars, you apparently like having your house egged and toilet papered….

8.  there’s a boy in DENVER who wants to join the girl scouts…he now has more time after getting voted off of “DANCING WITH THE STARS” on tuesday night…

9.  in BAY VILLAGE, OHIO, a man returning from a halloween party dressed as the teletubby “tinky winky”, was arrested for drunk driving…and yes, you guessed it, the cops made him “tinky winky” in a specimen cup…

10.  a woman in MARIETTA, GEORGIA was arrested the other day for allegedly stealing TWENTY SIX BOXES OF CONDOMS…geez…what the hell kind of halloween party was she planning on having?

11.  BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD returned to MTV last night…it’s nice that MTV is finally classing it up after “JERSEY SHORE.’  by the way, don’t mistake BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD with the republican debate!!!

12.  the defense for MICHAEL JACKSON’S doctor CONRAD MURRAY had patients testify on his behalf….umm…at least the ones who are STILL ALIVE….

13.  LINDSAY LOHAN was photographed leaving her morgue community service carrying two designer purses worth $4,000 dollars….LINDSAY was quoted as saying that these purses were “to die for.”

14.  JUSTIN BIEBER was pulled over by cops this week after cutting off a police officer in his “batman” themed cadillac…police just gave him a warning…..that he has about two minutes left of his 15 minutes of fame…

15.  a 60 year old SANTA FE woman was arrested for repeatedly stabbing her boyfriend whom she claimed was cheating at a game of MONOPOLY…

i have a message for her…


16.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (thanks LINDA…)

After 35 years of marriage, a husband and wife came for counseling. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the years they had been married. 

On and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness,
feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of unmet needs she
Had endured. 

Finally, after allowing this for a sufficient length of time, the
therapist got up, walked around the desk; and after asking the wife to
stand, embraced and kissed her passionately as her husband watched with a raised eyebrow. The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze. The therapist turned to the husband and said, ” This is what your wife needs at least 3 times a week. Can you do this? ”

‘Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on
Fridays, I fish. ‘
