1. LET’S GET CRAZY WITH TODAY’S FUNNIES….

here’s a little “LENTEN” temptation for all who gave this stuff up……

now THIS is creative……

2. the Lenten season has begun…..my Diet Pepsi is a thing of the past….for now…..Yesterday was Ash Wednesday……My desire for a Diet Pepsi wasn’t huge yesterday, but it was there…anyway, I have been looking for “replacements” for me during this season…….Of course, most people say WATER should be it….I find water very boring….there are times that water tastes really good, but for the most part, I get bored after a few days……..With that said, I think I found my “replacement….”

I put this on my Facebook page and have been getting MAULED by people telling me not to drink it……Well, it’s sugar free…..carb free…..calorie free……not bad…the only problem is the sodium…it’s, ummm…a WEE BIT high……Anyway, I will have a can once in awhile….I woke up this morning with that “caffeine withdrawal headache.” I came to work completely exhausted and ready for a nap at 8am….My little buddy Brad, conveniently tucked away in the back corner, said that I should try this drink…..not bad stuff…..The way I look at it is this…Something is going to kill me eventually…it might as well be something I like…..(my wife DESPISES that philosophy….)

3. happy birthday wishes are going out today to the great MICHELANGELO…..the creative person who painted and sculptured so many legendary items has a birthday today…….Now keep in mind that he died in 1564 at the ripe old age of 88…….That was quite a feat to live to 88 in those days……..how old would be be today?

??????????

539….yep, FIVE HUNDRED AND THIRTY NINE…..and probably wouldn’t look a day over 250………

4. RIDICULOUS STORY OF THE DAY: a California man is suing a casino in Lost Wages, ummm, I mean, LAS VEGAS….Why is he suing them? BECAUSE HE LOST $500,000 DOLLARS BECAUSE HE WAS DRUNK…yeah, because he was “passed out drunk.” He said that the casino should have cut him off in the shape that he was in…….

a couple of things….

****first of all, WHERE THE HECK DOES A GUY GET HALF A MILLION TO GAMBLE WITH? sheesh….apparently the casino “borrowed” it to him……seriously? they borrow that kind of money?

****secondly, you were there on your own will……As you became drunker, you could have stopped and gone to your room.

Sorry, no sympathy from this Norwegian…….

5. Did anybody hear about the school fire in DICKINSON, NORTH DAKOTA? Apparently the school is closed for the year because of heavy fire damage the other night…..Well, someone has been arrested in the fire at the school, which happened overnight…..who? THE PRINCIPAL…..seriously….THE PRINCIPAL….He’s being held on a huge bond, and officials say that have some pretty good evidence….I certainly don’t revel in anyone else’s pain, but I am so curious to hear the reasons for this fire…..

6. Have you heard the stories? NIAGARA FALLS HAS FROZEN….they are saying that the legendary waterfall is frozen solid. Apparently it happened in the early 1900’s as well….Here’s the scoop on it….Apparently, some of it is frozen….But officials at the head office say that “it’s not frozen.” Well, pictures prove otherwise…..I suppose if they say “it’s frozen”, tourists will stop coming….Actually, I have been to NIAGARA FALLS….it is absolutely breathtaking…..I would also go right now and see it frozen……check these pictures out……

unusually cold weather has caused this….I found out that they dropped to TWO BELOW ZERO the other night……Once again, NO SYMPATHY FROM THIS NORWEGIAN……

7. WHERE ARE THEY NOW? let’s find out where MASON REESE is at…Remember him? He was a child star who was in commercials for Underwood Deviled Ham, Raisin Bran, Dunkin’ Donuts and many more……

8. Happy birthday wishes are going out to a founding member of “THE SUPREMES.” MARY WILSON, believe it or not, turns 70 today!!!! She founded the legendary MOTOWN group along with FLORENCE BALLARD, and, of course, DIANA ROSS……They had some great music, too….

11. JOKE OF THE DAY:

A dog goes to a telegraph office and dictates a message. ‘Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof, woof.’ The operator reads it back then says, ‘Y’ know, we charge per ten words. You could have an extra ‘woof’ for free.’ And to that, the dog says “no thanks.”

OR HOW ABOUT THIS ONE…

Two old guys from a senior center were sipping lemonade on the porch when one asks the other, “Ralph, I’m 92 years old and even my aches have pains. You must be close to my age. How are you feeling?” Ralph says, “Like a brand new baby.” “No kidding! Like a brand new baby?” “Yep. No teeth, no hair, and wet diapers.”

HAVE A TERRIFIC REST OF THE WEEK AND WEEKEND MY FRIENDS….
