6.  also today, actress DIAHANN CARROLL turns 77…remember her?  she starred in the groundbreaking tv show “JULIA.”

here’s DIAHANN CARROLL today at 77….

her son COREY on the show “JULIA” was played by actor MARC COPAGE…he’s still acting…he appeared in the BRUCE WILLIS movie “THE KID”, where he played LAWYER JIM….MARC is now 50…here he is today….

7.  wow…i didn’t know if i could even make it off the softball field last night…my asthma was really acting up because of the heat and humidity….i scored a run, and then it took about ten minutes to catch my breath…kind of scared me…..looks like it’s time to get an inhaler to carry around…i’ve been putting it off because my old inhalers would speed my heart up, but after last night i may be forced to get one….

8.  what’s my favorite part of my church job in HECLA and HOUGHTON?  doing funerals…seriously, it is…..and my second favorite part? helping people find GOD again….working with people on their faith…it’s SO SO SO rewarding……love it…..it adds to my faith watching people regain thiers…..

9.  a man from MICHIGAN tried to rob a bank by pulling up to the drive-up window and demanding $10,000 dollars and some suckers….the teller quickly called police and his dentist….

10.  a tourism official in CHICAGO issued a report saying that the city must curtail crime in order to attract visitors…unfortunately, somebody stole his report…..

11.  I’M VERY UPSET ABOUT THIS….next spring, director SAM RAIMI is releasing a prequel to “THE WIZARD OF OZ.”  my question is, WHY?  anyway, the movie will reveal why the scarecrow didn’t have a brain…he watched too much reality tv…..

12.  pictures of the “OCTOMOM’S” stripping gig in FLORIDA have surfaced….the pictures come with the same warning as a solar eclipse….”DON’T LOOK DIRECTLY AT THEM…YOU’LL BURN YOUR RETINAS.”

13.  LINDSAY LOHAN will have a new sister…her father MICHAEL LOHAN’S girlfriend KATE  MAJOR is pregnant…LINDSAY is so excited that she called the expectant mom and asked here whas she needs shoplifted for the nursery….

14.  JOKE OF THE DAY….(and a good one, too….)

A couple of rednecks are out in the woods hunting when one of them suddenly grabs his chest and falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, and his eyes are rolled back in his head.
     The other redneck whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He gasps to the operator, “I think Bubba is dead! What should I do?”
     The operator, in a calm soothing voice says, “Just take it easy and follow my instructions. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”
     There is a silence… then a shot is heard.
     The redneck’s voice comes back on the line, “Okay, now what?”

HAVE A TERRIFIC TUESDAY…
