2.  yesterday i had the honor and pleasure of going back to my high school, LANGFORD HIGH SCHOOL….it was 30 years ago next week that i graduated from LANGFORD…and in my yearly ritual, i get to go to MRS. MILLS  class and talk about my life in radio…I LOVE DOING THIS….we snapped a few pictures that i thought i would share with you….

here’s the senior class of LANGFORD HIGH SCHOOL…

here i am entering the school….the original high school is now gone…this is entering the new part….by the way, i have some bricks in my garage from our old high school…that’s pretty cool……

when i was in school, i was blessed with two brothers that were all stars in football, basketball, and dating….and then there was JAY…ha ha…

anyway, my claim to fame was that i was drummer of the year, not once, but two years in a row…..that was quite cool for me….i took my drumming seriously, and put my heart and soul into it whenever we played….

here’s some proof that i actually won the awards…hopefully you can see my name on the second one….

this is me checking out the one and only place my name is mentioned in LANGFORD HIGH SCHOOL, other than my senior picture…

7.  AN OPEN LETTER TO AREA DRIVERS…

dear fellow drivers,

i don’t know if it’s the weather, or you butts are on fire, or you’re just an idiot, but i have to address a couple of driving tips for you.

***please don’t sit at a stop sign or stop light, wait for awhile and then pull out in front of me…the next person that does it will have my car grill firmly stuck into the back of their vehicle…it’s getting ridiculous…it happened three times in one day to me…..I DON’T THINK AN EXTRA 2 OR 3 SECONDS WILL KILL ANYONE…

***and for the 100th time, THE PASSING LANE ON A FOUR LANE IS FOR PASSING AND NOT DRIVING 20 MILES AN HOUR UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT…

it completely sucks when you have to dodge in and out of traffic to get around the morons who drive in that lane…if you are turning, fine…if you are just cruising in that lane for some reason, then i have an issue….

folks, the road belongs to all of us…..please be courteous and drive like a sane person….

sincerely,

the person you just cut off

8.  the creators of “MAD MEN” paid $250,000 dollars just to use the original BEATLES song “tomorrow never knows” on last week’s episode….they could have spent their money a bit better by taking any RINGO STARR song for $5,000 dollars, or any AMERICAN IDOL reject for ten cents…

9.  a new study predicts that by the year 2030 fourty two percent of AMERICANS will be obese…so, i’m not just fat, i’m a forward thinker…

10.  KANYE WEST unleashed a twitter rant on men’s fashions, saying men in NEW YORK CITY wear too many hoodies and casual clothes….KANYE says that men should dress like a page out of GQ, and should date women with low low I.Q.’S….(there..got my daily KIM KARDASHIAN bash in….)

11.  a man from INDIANA was arrested for a DUI after he drove three blocks with four kids strapped to the hood of his car…yeah, my dad wouldn’t let us eat in the car either…

12.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (which is perfect being i’m having wisdom teeth taken out today)

A woman and her husband interrupted their vacation to go to the dentist.
    “I want a tooth pulled, and I don’t want Novocain because I’m in a big hurry,” the woman said. “Just extract the tooth as quickly as possible, and we’ll be on our way.”
    The dentist was quite impressed. “You’re certainly a courageous woman,” he said. “Which tooth is it?”
    The woman turned to her husband and said, “Show him your tooth, dear.”

HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY…

JAY DEAN
