WELL..IT FINALLY HAPPENED…

 

734047_10200349943808036_1921153539_n

 

in case you’re not from my area, we are seriously in the deep freeze today….schools are closed….not much traffic around…..why?

oh, it’s only because the temps are in the TEENS BELOW ZERO and the wind chills are hovering around 40 BELOW…..yep..it’s one cold miserable day…the sun is shining though, which is quite deceiving….the only thing keeping me warm is the following thought……

 

hot-weather

 

the blog is sponsored by PIERSON FORD in ABERDEEN….we have SERIOUSLY ran out of spots to put our pre owned trucks in…that’s right, we have NEVER EVER seen an assortment of pre owned trucks like this before…and it doesn’t matter what brand you’re looking for, we have them…..and, of course, if you’re looking for a BRAND NEW FORD TRUCK, we have them here as well…..and you know they’re a great truck because the FORD’S are the number one selling truck for 36 years straight!!! THAT IS IMPRESSIVE…….

SILLY CAT….

how many people believe this one?

 

424872_4570359611079_1210988324_n

 

and finally, i think i’ve actually done the next stupid act……

 

734083_301224816647492_1219429269_n

 

2.  actor STUART MARGOLIN turns 73 today……you probably don’t remember the name, but you’ll remember him….

he played CAPTAIN PHILLIP SHERMAN in the 1972 season of “M*A*S*H”…

 

Captain_Sherman_MASH

 

but, STUART MARGOLIN is best known for being JAMES ROCKFORD’S best pal,  ANGEL MARTIN in the classic show “THE ROCKFORD FILES.”  in fact, STUART won the PRIMETIME EMMY’S OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR twice for his role on that show…he won it in 1979 and 1980….and he’s only one of four guys to do that….pretty cool……..

 

sm3

 

here’s STUART MARGOLIN today at 73……..he’s on the right, of course….

 

stuart-margolin-07

 

i know we’ve featured his co-star JAMES GARNER before, but i’ll just let you know that he’s still alive and kickin’ at 84…….here he is recently….

3.  there’s another guy celebrating a birthday today that you know, but you might not know his real name…..his real name is HARRY WAYNE CASEY….know who he is?  he’s the lead singer of this band….

 

KC_and_the_Sunshine_Band_album_cover

 

get it?  last name CASEY?  K.C.?  yep…..he turns 62 today….he was quite a favorite of the girls back then…..

 

051312MSMO200

 

kc___the_sunshine_band[1]

 

here’s HARRY WAYNE CASEY today at 62….and by the way, K.C. AND THE SUNSHINE BAND are still performing “live”…wouldn’t they be awesome at the BROWN COUNTY FAIR?  or the SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FAIR?   (HINT HINT HINT)

 

Harry Wayne Casey

 

harry-kc-wayne-casey-of-kc-and_5801423

 

4.  let’s get the blood pumpin’ with a little music from K.C. AND THE SUNSHINE BAND…

 

here’s one of my faves….”BOOGIE SHOES.”

http://youtu.be/7vHlqBt8mO0

 

they even had a huge ballad called “PLEASE DON’T GO.”  awesome awesome song…..

http://youtu.be/w-l5FyA3pgo

 

and finally, their signature song, “THAT’S THE WAY I LIKE IT.”   uh-huh, uh-huh….

http://youtu.be/a2L3g0cjbXM

 

5.  i have some hilarious friends in my life, and one of them is the very beautiful MEGAN who lives in NORTH DAKOTA….she is a childhood friend of my boys…we used to call her “BACON.”  actually, we still do…don’t know if she still likes it or not….ha ha…..anyway, MEGAN about made me spit out my diet pepsi the other night when i read her FACEBOOK post….this is funny……..

“i find it ironic that the colors red, white and blue represent freedom…..until they are flashing behind you.”

LOVE THAT!!!

 

6.  WOW…WHAT A GAME LAST NIGHT……the MINNESOTA WILD knocked the CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS out of the unbeaten ranks, as the WILD won in a shootout to end the game……for those of you who don’t know hockey, a shootout is the last resort after overtime….it’s when it’s one on one……one player trying to score against the other team’s goalie….PRETTY CRAZY…PRETTY EXCITING….

one of the heroes last night was number seven…MATT CULLEN…..he is a native of MOORHEAD, MINNESOTA, played hockey with the MOORHEAD SPUDS, and went to college at ST. CLOUD STATE….so, he’s a “local boy did good” type of scenario…..here’s CULLEN’S excitement after scoring last night……

 

013013-NHL-Cullen-PI-AM_20130130232848789_660_320

 

Matt Cullen

 

i still haven’t missed a game on tv yet…i want so so so badly to go to a game…so, here’s my one time begging?

ANYBODY HAVE MINNESOTA WILD  SEASON TICKETS THEY WANT TO GET RID OF FOR A GAME?   yeah, good luck with that, right?

 

7.  WIFE TO HUSBAND…”do i look fat?”

HUSBAND TO WIFE…. “do i look STUPID?”

 

8.  my warped sense of humor almost got me in trouble one time on a bus trip where i was the “celebrity chaperone”…..our lovely tour guide came out in a dress and asked me that stupid question, “jay, does this dress make my butt look big?”   and, before i could restrain myself, i shouted, “no, your BUTT makes your butt look big.”   (thank goodness she has a great sense of humor…..)

 

9.  good night of tv tonight…the series ending one hour finale of “30 ROCK”, and a full hour of new “THE OFFICE” episodes…..it’s also “THE OFFICE” last season, too…..”THE OFFICE” hasn’t been that good this past couple of years since STEVE CARRELL left, but we can’t shut if off, nonetheless…..

 

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A woman came up behind her husband while he was enjoying his morning coffee and slapped him on the back of the head. “I found a piece of paper in your pants pocket with the name ‘Marylou’ written on it,” she said, furious. “You had better have an explanation.” “Calm down, honey,” the man replied. “Remember last week when I was at the dog track? That was the name of the dog I bet on. “The next morning, his wife snuck up on him and smacked him again.” What was that for?” he complained. “Your dog called last night.”……..

 

HAVE A GREAT DAY MY FRIENDS……

JAY DEAN

 

the answer to the next question is….NO!!!!  but just hang on, it will get here….

!cid_11_4056996885@web120613_mail_ne1_yahoo

 

and finally……..some bragging rights!!!!

 

fwdbibli-11

 

2.  i go into streaks of listening to music….i’ll start with classic country and play some BUCK OWENS, PATSY CLINE, HANK WILLIAMS, and others….and then i’ll cruise into some good old polka music like MYRON FLOREN, JIMMY STURR, FRANK YANKOVIC and more…….and recently, i’ve been into the soft pop of the 70’s…..specifically “LOBO.”

 

do you remember LOBO?  his real  name is KENT LAVOIE….believe it or not, he is now 69 years old….how about that?  he had great songs like “ME AND YOU AND A DOG NAMED BOO”, “DON’T EXPECT ME TO BE YOUR FRIEND, ”  “I’D LOVE YOU TO WANT ME”, and my personal favorite, “HOW CAN I TELL HER”…..remember him?

here’s LOBO recently…….

lobovegas04

 

3.  okay, i can’t tempt you with LOBO hits and not play some….get ready to sit back in your chair and be mesmerized by one of the best voices of the 70’s….LOBO…

 

here’s “I’D LOVE YOU TO WANT ME.”  (dig the hair, man)

http://youtu.be/cyN0FeAsBpI

 

i love this next one….”DON’T EXPECT ME TO BE YOUR FRIEND.”

http://youtu.be/EzftH2eZT_0

 

how about a little “ME AND YOU AND A DOG NAMED BOO.”  awesome song….

http://youtu.be/aTbBvPoxUkk

 

and here’s my favorite…”HOW CAN I TELL HER”……this song gives me goosebumps…..

http://youtu.be/sFwGI492XCU

 

4.  one of my favorite actors in the world turns 83 tomorrow…i’m talking about GENE HACKMAN…what a great actor….83?  are you serious?  man, this guy doesn’t age……you probably remember GENE HACKMAN from “THE FRENCH CONNECTION”, “THE BIRDCAGE” and hundreds of other roles…….remember him?

 

genius hackman

he was hilarious on the ROBIN WILLIAMS movie “THE BIRDCAGE”….he even got to dress in drag….ha ha…

here’s the wonderful, awesome, inspiring and incredible actor GENE HACKMAN recently…….

5.  well, it snowed here yesterday….i mean REALLY snowed…..how much?  well, generally this much around the area…..

 

69-800

 

that’s right, anywhere from 5-10 inches fell in our area….i was up this morning at 6:00 outside blowing snow…it was pretty easy to move, which i was thankful for……then, i came to work and we had to clean the PIERSON FORD lot…that took about three hours…no biggie…they reward us with pizza, and i’m sure i’ve done worse things for pizza…ha ha…..

 

6.  i had a blast on sunday….my beautiful wife had to run to town to get some things, so i plugged in my jukebox AND RATTLED THE WINDOWS….man, i love doing that…nothing takes the edge off of me like extremely loud music…..i was blasting stuff from “THE FORRESTER SISTERS”, “BUCK OWENS”, “GARY LEWIS AND THE PLAYBOYS”, “THE LOVIN’ SPOONFUL”, “ELVIS”, “HANK WILLIAMS,” and many more………..can’t wait to do it again…….

 

7.  i couldn’t stomach the NFL PRO BOWL the other night…didn’t even watch a play….and the combined score was a record setting 97 points, i believe….hmm…soft defense…lots of offense….nobody wants to get hurt, so they weren’t playing that hard, i’m sure…i hear that the coolest part of the night dealt with now retired star JEFF SATURDAY….he hiked the ball to PEYTON MANNING for many many years, and this past year, his last year in the league, he was getting the ball to AARON RODGERS and the GREEN BAY PACKERS….so, they did something i’ve never heard of before, but i thought it was cool…….JEFF SATURDAY got to hike the ball to both MANNING brothers…which meant one from the NFC and one from the AFC…that’s right, he jumped sides to hike the ball…classy move from both teams…love it!!!

 

8.  i haven’t missed a MINNESOTA WILD hockey game yet….there’s another one tonight….the bad news is, they have lost their last three games….there is much excitement about this team, and so called “fans” are already griping about the lineup…here’s the deal…GIVE THEM A BREAK…..they didn’t get any exhibition games……it’s a short season, and not much practice before the first game…..these guys haven’t played together very well…TRUST ME…they will “gel”….they will be excellent for the next few years…just give them time…..

and by the way, ZACH PARISE is absolutely incredible…he has like five goals so far, and a few assists….he’s fun to watch…and i’m so glad i have a “WILD” jersey with his name on it…..

 

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A man walks into a bar and orders a beer. He takes his first sip and sets it down. While he is looking around the bar, a monkey swings down and steals the pint of beer from him before he is able to stop the monkey.

The man asks the barman who owns the monkey. The barman replies the piano player. The man walks over to the piano player and says “Do you know your monkey stole my beer.” The pianist replies “No, but if you hum it, I’ll play it.”

 

OR HOW ABOUT THIS ONE?

Gus, a traveling salesman, stopped at a gas station to use the facilities. The restroom had two commodes, and there was a man already using one of them. They nodded at each other and went about their business. Gus finished first and as he pulled up his pants, some change fell out of his pocket into the bowl. He looked at it for a moment, then threw a $50 into the bowl.

“What did you do that for?!” the other man asked.

Gus replied, “Well, you don’t expect me to put my hand in there for thirty-five cents, do you?”

 

HAVE A TERRIFIC DAY MY FRIENDS…

2.  comedian RAY STEVENS turns 74 today…that seems weird to say…..you probably know RAY STEVENS from great songs like “THE STREAK”, “IT’S ME AGAIN MARGARET”, and many many other classics…..here’s an early picture of RAY STEVENS back  in the days of “EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL.”

Ray_Stevens

here’s a picture from the 80’s….

and here’s RAY STEVENS today at 74….i beleive he’s showing off his new project….an 8 cd compilation box set of all of his stuff….that could be fun….

3.  how about some RAY STEVENS classics….

this is one of my faves….”THE STREAK.”

i have always loved “EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL.”

4.  remember the little boy from the horror classic “THE OMEN?”  his real name is HARVEY STEPHENS…..he is now 42 years old…let’s check in and see what he looks like today…..

HARVEY played “DAMIEN” the “antichrist” in this classic horror film…..he was one evil little dude!!!

and here is HARVEY STEPHENS today at 42….

5.  well, the NFL PRO BOWL is this weekend…and i have two words about that…WHO CARES!!!  i just can’t watch this game….they don’t play with passion.  it’s more like a touch football game than a real one….no defense either…scores usually end up pretty high…..the only thing i’m excited about this year is the fact that two of my church members are actually at the game…that is pretty cool…..

6.  OH MY GOODNESS AM I HOOKED!!!!  i can’t walk away from the tv when the MINNESOTA WILD are playing hockey this season…i’ve watched all the games so far, and can’t wait to watch another one…..

htgicqgdohwgrl8oofg97q3eu

z3ul1trj5c68gxjnf2vpzdnsd

the “state of hockey” in MINNESOTA is pretty doggone positive……and a lot of the enthusiasm is based on our two new free agents, ZACH PARISE AND RYAN SUTER…..they were the number one and two in the free agent market in the off season, and NOBODY thought that they would go to the same team, and especially not to a team like the MINNESOTA WILD…but, the WILD’S owner stepped up and put down a TON of cash for the WILD to win….experts are saying that the MINNESOTA WILD could challenge others for the STANLEY CUP even this year!!!! THAT WOULD BE AWESOME…

here is PARISE AND SUTER….

7.  don’t know if my beautiful bride and i can make it to a movie this weekend, but if we do, i think i’ll recommend the new BRADLEY COOPER movie……

Silver-Linings-Playbook-poster

critics are saying it’s a wonderful movie……and it’s up for a ton of awards too…..we’ll see…i might just want to rest my butt on the couch all weekend…..getting to be a tired old man…..

8.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A rookie police officer was out for his first ride in a cruiser with an experienced partner. A call came in telling them to disperse some people who were loitering. The officers drove to the street and observed a small crowd standing on a corner. The rookie rolled down his window and said, “Let’s get off the corner people.” A few glances, but no one moved, so he barked again, “Let’s get off tha…t corner… NOW!” Intimidated, the group of people began to leave, casting puzzled stares in his direction. Proud of his first official act, the young policeman turned to his partner and asked, “Well, how did I do?” Pretty good,” chuckled the vet, “especially since this is a bus stop.”
HAVE A TERRIFIC WEEKEND MY FRIENDS…

THE NEXT PERSON THAT ASKS ME IF “IT’S COLD ENOUGH FOR ME” GETS KNOCKED ON THEIR BUTT…wow….don’t know what it’s like where you are but in northeastern south dakota it’s doggone cold….

1.  HERE ARE YOUR FUNNIES….

 

i had heard of the next one happening, but i DIDN’T REALIZE IT WAS REAL…

 

265019_10151635076381038_1009547266_n

 

hmm…i wondered how they got the lime in there….

i never realized how funny tacos could be….

 

376449_414352361975665_2048046102_n

 

this next one cracked me up BIG TIME…

 

funny-picture-typewriting-while-driving

 

2.  well, since we last talked we lost a couple of goodies…..in fact three….two baseball hall of famers and a legendary advice columnist…..ladies first….

her real name was PAULINE PHILLIPS…..you probably dont’ know the name…here pen name was ABIGAIL VAN BUREN….we’re getting closer…..her column was known as “DEAR ABBY.”  she passed away last week at the age of 94……

 

Abigail-Van-Buren-21100947-1-402

 

20615219_BG1

 

did you know that she was sisters with another advice columnist by the name of ANN LANDERS?  its’ true…in fact, they were identical twins……EPPIE LEDERER was ANN LANDER’S real name…..she died back in 2002 at the age of 83….remember her?

 

65281-ann-landers-1918-1a032

 

here are the sisters together…..rumor has it that the girls had a big feud going up until their deaths…..

 

18abby-articleLarge

 

3.  baseball hall of famer EARL WEAVER died on a cruise ship last week at the age of 82….he was a player and manager….he managed the BALTIMORE ORIOLES for 17 years…..he was known for his blowhard attitude and his infamous fights with the umpires……legendary ones…..

but for us SOUTH DAKOTA folks, EARL WEAVER is remembered as being the manager of our own ABERDEEN PHEASANTS back in 1959……

 

130119040501_Earl-Weaver

 

here’s EARL WEAVER recently….

 

011913-MLB-Earl-Weaver-DG-PI_20130119111518485_660_320

 

4.  a legendary baseball player also died….STAN “THE MAN” MUSIAL was 92 when he passed away last week…..STAN did something that no player today would even consider doing…..STAYING WITH THE SAME TEAM….MR. MUSIAL played 22 years with the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS….he was a baseball ALL-STAR a record 24 times….in fact, he is tied with WILLIE MAYS for that record……..here he is…

 

Stan-Musial

 

and here’s ST. LOUIS’ beloved star STAN MUSIAL in recent years…..

 

130119_stan_musial_660

 

you will probably never find that loyalty in a player ever again…..unless they are paid millions and millions of dollars…STAN didn’t make that kind of money…he played the game for the love of it….a passion that is probably gone in most cases today….

 

5.  happy birthday wishes are going out to actress LINDA BLAIR who turns 54 today…and is still completely GORGEOUS….most people will remember her for her spooktacular role in, i think, the scariest movie ever made…”THE EXORCIST.”

 

linda-blair-the-exorcist-main

 

here is LINDA BLAIR today…looking incredibly beautiful…..

 

Linda+Blair+Elvira+Linda+Blair+Fright+Dome+S1OpB_WwRRAl

 

here’s one more…and, umm..just in case you’ve been drinking heavily, she’s the one on the left…..

 

Linda+Blair+Elvira+Linda+Blair+Fright+Dome+85_wxvpJeCCl

 

6.  well, it finally happened…i’m 48 years old and recently witnessed the all time worst fans i have ever seen……wow…the team was great…the kids were level headed and good sports, but the spectators were incredibly rude.  they were slinging comments at the other team and arguing with people in the stands…unreal……even pointing and laughing when their opponents missed a basket….

 

7.  my beautiful wife and i went out friday night for some fun…we took my son TYLER to MAX AND ERMA’S for a great meal, and then my bride and i took off to see the new horror movie “MAMA.”  i saw the previews a few months ago and really didn’t want to see it…but we went anyway….GLAD I DID…IT SCARED THE HELL OUT OF ME…..it was super super good…..highly recommend this one if you like horror movies……..

 

tumblr_magqj2abTX1qfxp0bo1_500

 

mama-movie-picture-2

 

this is the first time in YEARS that i have seen two horror movies in a row that were really good…this one and “SINISTER.”  keep them coming HOLLYWOOD…i’ll bet they can’t keep that streak going…ha ha…

 

8.  it’s “THE HARBAUGH BOWL.”  brothers JIM and JON HARBAUGH will be coaching their teams, the SAN FRANCISCO 49’ERS and the BALTIMORE RAVENS in the SUPER BOWL…..the brothers are already tired of people talking about them being the first brothers ever to coach in a major championship…..being the good guys they are, they are trying to turn the game back on the players, which is where it should be……..should be a great game….my prediction coming up next week….

 

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

 

Three old men were sitting around talking about who had the worst health problems.

The seventy-year-old said, “Have I got a problem. Every morning I get up at 7:30 and have to take a pee , but I have to stand at the toilet for an hour, ’cause my pee barely trickles out.”

“Heck, that’s nothing, ” said the eighty year old. “Every morning at 8:30 I have to take a dump , but I have to sit on the can for hours because of my constipation. It’s terrible”.

The ninety-year-old said, “You guys think you have problems! Every morning at 7:30 I pee  like a racehorse, and at 8:30 I crap like a pig.

The trouble with me is, I don’t wake up till eleven.”

 

HAVE A TREMENDOUS DAY….

2.  we begin today wish sad news……actor CONRAD BAIN died this week at the age of 89…….most people remember him as MR. DRUMMOND on “DIFFERENT STROKES”, but did you know that he had an earlier role on “MAUDE?”  that’s where i remember him from….

 

Maude68_t500x380

 

but, it’s MR. DRUMMOND that people remember him most….here he is with co-stars, and his tv kids, GARY COLEMAN and TODD BRIDGES….TODD released a statement saying that he was devastated by CONRAD’S death, and that he was truly a father figure, not only on the show, but up until he died….

sadly, two of his tv children beat him to the grave……GARY COLEMAN died in 2010 at the age of 42, and DANA PLATO who played his daughter “KIMBERLY” died in 1999 at the age of 34….

i couldn’t find any recent photos of CONRAD BAIN, but here are a couple from a few years ago, including one with the boys…..

i had never heard of “CHARLEY’S SUBS” before, but MAN OH MAN ARE THEY GOOD….here’s what we had yesterday…a philly cheese sub and bacon cheddar fries….mmmmm…..

8.  yuck…i turned on tv when we got home last night and saw the KARDASHIAN sisters on late night tv….ISN’T THEIR FIFTEEN MINUTES UP YET?

 

9.  JOKES OF THE DAY:  (good ones, too)

 

why are there so many alcoholic lawyers?  because they have trouble passing the bar……

 

and one of my favorites:

this old man and old lady in their 80’s are walking thru the park when all of a sudden a pigeon flies over and poops on the guys forehead….his wife says “oh, honey, i wish i had some toilet paper with me right now.”  and the old guy yells, “WHAT THE HELL FOR?  HE MUST BE A HALF MILE AWAY BY NOW.”

 

ENJOY YOUR DAY

2.  our two sons turned us on to a fantastic television show called “AMERICAN HORROR STORY.”  it’s on the FX channel…….season one was last year, so all twelve episodes are on NETFLIX….well, we watched season one and it is INCREDIBLE….scary, creepy, eerie, and a great storyline………..our butts are dragging today, because we stayed up and watched the last four episodes last night…couldn’t shut them off…ended up going to bed around midnight or so…..(old people aren’t supposed to do that.)

the show “AMERICAN HORROR STORY” season one, centers around a haunted house that keeps you there for an eternity if you die in the house…..and many people did…..and not of natural causes, either….there are ghosts galore, and even some super sexy scenes which really suprised us…..but then again, it’s basic cable………

and here is some of the cast of the show…..

 

151258_first-look-ryan-murphys-american-horror-story

highly highly highly recommend this show…….like i said, season one is available on NETFLIX and, i beleive, on dvd box set….season two is on now and is set in an INSANE ASYLUM…that should be incredible.

 

3.  one of the stars of “AMERICAN HORROR STORY” season one and season two is the great actress JESSICA LANGE….i thought it would be fun to feature her today…..she, by the way, is 63 years old already…but then again, she’s been in movies for quite some time…..

i didn’t know this, but JESSICA LANGE is a MINNESOTA GIRL……she was born and graduated in CLOQUET, MINNESOTA and is a graduate of the U OF M in MINNEAPOLIS…..here she is in an early shot….

 

jessica-lange-then-1_thumb

 

one of her early roles was the 1976 remake of “KING KONG.”

 

19770131-750-0

 

you probably also remember JESSICA LANGE from the 1982 hit “TOOTSIE” also starring DUSTIN HOFFMAN…..

 

artwork_images_113308_454840_maryellen-mark

 

probably my favorite role of JESSICA’S is when she played the country music super icon PATSY CLINE in the movie “SWEET DREAMS” from 1985….

and who can forget her great role with NICK NOLTE and ROBERT DENIRO in the remake of “CAPE FEAR” which was a big hit in 1991 for her…..

5.  WOW!!  WHAT A WEEKEND FOR NFL FOOTBALL…..

***the BALTIMORE RAVENS shocked the nation with an upset win over PEYTON MANNING and the DENVER BRONCOS…the BRONCOS were even playing at home……

***COLIN KAPERNICK went crazy for the SAN FRANCISCO 49’ERS, as they crushed the GREEN BAY PACKERS….KAPERNICK shattered an NFL record for rushing yards by a quarterback….

***the ATLANTA FALCONS withstood a stubborn SEATTLE SEAHAWKS team yesterday to win by a couple of points….after the FALCONS pulled ahead in the final minute, they tried to do a sqib kick, but it turned out to be more of an onside kick, and almost put the SEAHAWKS into field goal range to win the game……but ATLANTA held on….

***and the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS once again took care of the HOUSTON TEXANS…

which sets up this weekends matches with the winners going to the SUPER BOWL….it’s the ATLANTA FALCONS vs. the SAN FRANCISCO 49’ERS, and the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS vs. the BALTIMORE RAVENS….

who do i want to win?  don’t really care, but would kind of like to see a “HARBAUGH BOWL” as both brothers are coaching the 49’ERS and the RAVENS…..

 

6.  my beautiful bride and i went to see a movie saturday night…we have been waiting for weeks to see “GANGSTER SQUAD” so, we went this weekend……right before the movie, our son TYLER told us that critics were ripping the movie to shreds…so, we became a bit concerned…HOWEVER, we really enjoyed the movie…great action, great story, and SEAN PENN proves why he is one of the greatest actors of our time…..we recommend this movie…..

7.  i was a bit suprised and happy with some of the winners of the GOLDEN GLOBES last night……the movie “ARGO” won best picture, which suprised me…….BEN AFFLECK won for best director…..but i was happy when DANIEL DAY LEWIS won for best actor for his portrayal of ABRAHAM LINCOLN in the really good movie “LINCOLN.”  and, as i had predicted earlier, CHRISTOPHER WALTZ won best supporting actor for his role in “DJANGO UNCHAINED.”  i hear that TINA FEY and AMY POEHLER were pretty good as hosts……i’m not super hyped on them, but i probably would have enjoyed them….

 

8.  apparently LADY GAGA split a pair of latex pants the other day and exposed her butt…..seriously?  DON’T CARE…this woman does absolutely nothing for me…..

 

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

A redneck family from outside Little Rock was visiting a city in the North and they were in a mall for the first time in their lives. The father and son decided to stroll around while the wife shopped. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

The boy said, “Pa, What’s’at?” Pa (never having seen an elevator) said, “Dunno, son. Ain’t never seen nothing like ‘at in my whole dang life. Ain’t got no idea’r what ’tis.”

Then, all of a sudden, while the two watched in amazement, a fat old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and she rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched as small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until the number at the top lit up. And then the small lights commenced to work their way down again.

When the walls opened the next time, out stepped a gorgeous, voluptuous, turbo 24-year-old blonde woman.

Reverently, and without taking his eyes off the babe, Pa said, quietly, “Boy . . . go . . . git . . . yo . . . Momma.”

 

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY….

4.  alrighty, here comes some PAT BENATAR music that you can crank up….speaking of “cranking up the volume”, if you lived in KRAMER HALL at NORTHERN STATE UNIVERSITY in ABERDEEN back in 1983, you heard this next song coming out of my room every night during “crank hours.”   it’s the birthday girl, with my favorite song by her, “SHADOWS OF THE NIGHT.”  i still crank this song every time it comes on…..

http://youtu.be/66aqcOsnP2E

 

here’s one of the all time classics from the 80’s…”HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT.”

http://youtu.be/serV18MirGg

 

i also love this song…”WE BELONG.”

http://youtu.be/qxZInIyOBXk

6.  so called “comedian”, BILL MAHER is at it again…..i can’t stand the guy…i think he’s a pompous, arrogant jerk……his newest escapade is that he promised FIVE MILLION DOLLARS to give to DONALD TRUMP if “THE DONALD” produced a birth certificate that would prove that he is not the “spawn of his mom having next with an orangutan.”  what a creep…well, DONALD produced the birth certificate, and wants the money to donate to charity…..MAHER isn’t coughing it up……..what do you think?  some people say that it’s just a “comedy gag” and he shouldn’t have to give the money…i say “anti up” dude…and next time maybe SHUT YOUR BIG PIE HOLE…..

 

trump-demands-$5-million

 

7.  the ACADEMY AWARD nominations were announced this morning, and to no one’s suprise, “LINCOLN” led the pack with twelve nominations, including best actor nod for DANIEL DAY LEWIS, and supporting roles for SALLY FIELD and TOMMY LEE JONES, as well as “picture of the year” nominations………you may remember that i ABSOLUTELY LOVED this movie, and i hope it wins…i’m also thrilled that “DJANGO UNCHAINED” is also up for “best picture.”  this may be one award show i have to watch……

 

8.  NO BASEBALL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES THIS YEAR….that’s right, nobody got the 75 percent needed to make the hall…….some of the newbies included SAMMY SOSA, MARK MCGUIRE and BARRY BONDS, who, obviously, were labeled as “steroid users”, and are probably being punished for that action……..my thought?  i’m torn about this…….if they must make the hall, which they probably should because of their awesome careers, they should make a “steroids” wing in the hall of fame with these guys in there…..because, it’s totally possible that some of their numbers were fudged by illegal drugs…….

 

9.  JOKE OF THE DAY:

 

One day, a man walks into a dentist’s office and asks
how much it will cost to extract wisdom teeth. “Eighty dollars,” the dentist
says. “That’s a ridiculous amount,” the man says. “Isn’t there a cheaper way?”
“Well,” the dentist says, “if you don’t use an aesthetic, I can knock the price
down to $60.” Looking annoyed the man says, “That’s still too expensive!”
“Okay,” says the dentist. “If I save on anesthesia and simply rip the teeth out
with a pair of pliers, I can knock the price down to $20.” “Nope,” moans the
man, “it’s still too much.” “Well,” says the dentist, scratching his head, “if I
let one of my students do it, I suppose I can knock the price down to $10.”
“Marvelous,” says the man, “book my wife for next Tuesday!”
