sadly enough, I think I have ALL of these issues with my car…I mean, body…..




do you know how much a chicken’s surgery costs? A COUPLE OF BAWCKS……




yep…it would be a catastrophe without computers…..




that’s right, its OLYMPICS TIME…In beautiful SOCHI, IDAHO……no wait…it’s SOCHI, RUSSIA…….my mistake…..here’s the deal…absolutely no disrespect intended, but I don’t watch the Olympics…..never have…..I can’t tell you why, I have just never gotten into them….don’t get me wrong…I RESPECT what the people have done to train…..I ADMIRE what they are doing, and I CELEBRATE when they win, but I just don’t watch them….my wife on the other hand? I’m surprised she doesn’t take days off from work to watch it……

3. So……I am having youth group last night at my church in HECLA, SOUTH DAKOTA…..and I am doing “Valentine’s Day trivia.” don’t know what this next one has to do with that, other than the man has a name of VALENTINE…but, I found it interesting…….

a man named VALENTINE TAPLEY, who was a democrat, hated republicans…..and he despised ABRAHAM LINCOLN….in fact, when LINCOLN was running for President, TAPLEY announced that “if Lincoln wins, I will never shave again.” well, LINCOLN WON….and VALENTINE TAPLEY never shaved again…it’s true…..

when this man died in 1910, his beard had grown to 12 FOOT SIX INCHES….yep…and I have a picture to verify the story…..


I know a couple of celebrities who were going to leave AMERICA if a certain man was named President….they didn’t uphold their end of the bargain…DANG IT….they should have taken a page from the book of VALENTINE TAPLEY…..

4. in the “I thought she had died” category for today, it’s ZSA ZSA GABOR’S birthday……she turns 97 today….you heard the stories right…she has been at death’s door many many times, but has always survived…obviously……

anyway, we want to salute this grand ole woman during her 97th birthday….ZSA ZSA GABOR has been an actress, singer, Broadway star…all of it….and did you know, A BEAUTY QUEEN? that’s right, Miss GABOR was “MISS HUNGARY 1936.”

Zsa Zsa Gabor 1


such a beautiful woman…..


here are a couple of recent pictures of the birthday girl……we absolutely wish her the very best in her final stages of this life!!!



5. remember “B.J. HUNNICUTT” on the hit tv show M*A*S*H? well, his character was played by actor MIKE FARRELL…..MIKE turns 75 today…yeah, I said SEVENTY FIVE…wow…where did the time go?



in recent years, MIKE FARRELL has become an activist for a lot of causes…mostly human rights…and, he was awarded PETA’S humanitarian award back in 2001….here’s MIKE FARRELL recently…

6. Well, one of the “WALTON BOYS” is having a birthday today….JON WALMSLEY played the song “JASON WALTON” on the hit tv show “THE WALTONS.”


evidently the music he played on the tv show was for real, because JON has been involved in music since them….he has played with the likes of MERLE HAGGARD, THE DOOBIE BROTHERS, THE BEACH BOYS, RICHARD MARX and dozens of other stars……he also was the original voice of CHRISTOPHER ROBIN on “WINNIE THE POOH.” here’s JON WALMSLEY today at 58……

at "The Waltons" 40th Anniversary Reunion, Wilshire Ebell Theater, Los Angeles, CA 09-29-12

7. speaking of “THE WALTONS”, I thought I would share a cool picture of them at a reunion in the last couple of years…….of course, we all know the family by heart…..


the show starred RALPH WAITE as “JOHN WALTON” the papa, and MISS MICHAEL LEARNED as the mom, “OLIVIA WALTON.” you may remember that when they showed the credits of the show, she was listed as “MISS MICHAEL LEARNED”…that’s so some people weren’t confused about her being a man or woman…….

here’s a picture of their 40th anniversary reunion a couple of years ago….I thought that papa RALPH was on there, too, but I didn’t see him…so, I put another picture of him on here….by the way, RALPH WAITE is 85….MISS MICHAEL LEARNED is 74…..


8. I don’t watch “THE BIGGEST LOSER”, because, as you’ve heard me say before, “I DON’T WATCH REALITY SHOWS…MY REALITY IS HARD ENOUGH.”

anyway, my beautiful wife watches the show…….and after they named this year’s winner, the debate started….is she TOO SKINNY? this years winner is 24 year old RACHEL FREDERICKSON….are you ready for this?

SHE LOST 155 POUNDS…YEAH…155……(she basically lost a Backstreet Boy…)


heck, I thought she was pretty hot and beautiful when she was larger…….so, what do you think? is she “too skinny?” is losing that much weight hard on you? here’s my deal…I DON’T CARE…it’s her life…..the only thing is, I think sometimes these reality shows go into “dark waters.” One of these days, someone is going to die on a reality show, and all hell will break loose…..until then, sit back, grab some popcorn and watch someone else’s misery…….


There was once a man who was in a bar, terribly drunk. The bartender noticed this, and when he asked for another beer, the bartender politely told him that he was too drunk to be served another drink. The man leaves. He walks in the side door and asks the bartender for a beer. A little frustrated, the bartender repeats the answer he said before. The man leaves. He then comes in the other side door, walks to the bartender and asks for a beer. The bartender is annoyed, and tells the man he is too drunk and to get a ride home and leave his bar. He leaves. He then comes in the BACK door, comes the the bartender, and before he can say a word, the bartender explodes at him. “I told you already, you are way to drunk, you can not have another beer! Get out of my bar!” Disgruntled, the man looks at the bartender and asks, “GEEZ, MAN…HOW MANY BARS DO YOU WORK AT?”
