Friday Assortment

Friday, March 22, 2013

A teacher asked her second-grade class what they thought was nature’s biggest mystery. Little Jimmy raised his hand and said, “The bear’s coat.”
Curious, the teacher asked, “Why do you think the bear’s coat is nature’s biggest mystery?”
“Because,” said Jimmy, “heaven knows where it’s buttoned.”
What served as the trophy in 1876 when dancers Nelly Saunders and Rose Harland competed in the first women’s boxing match in the U.S.?

A silver-plated butter dish. Saunders, a boxer’s wife, also won $200. The match was held in New York City.
What do superstar Jennifer Lopez and Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba have in common? Both started as “Fly Girl” dancers on In Living Color. Comedians Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx also got their start on the show, an early ’90s alternative to Saturday Night Live.

Mr. Belvedere was pitched to CBS in 1956 … and 1965, and finally picked up by ABC … in 1985.

Remember Carey's
Fire Marshal ?
There are regular

looked at LOT more
hispanic with short, BLACK
hair and thicker eyebrows.
I don't watch Idol and don't

British accent !

Reality check...and Thursday Assortment

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I'm back!!! I've been struggling for about a month now - not walking enough and eating more than I should. However, I decided it was time to take myself back in hand and take my own advice - "A setback is only a setup for a comeback". I started back to walking a lot and really watched what I was eating. When I got on the scale this morning - emoticon - 4.25 lbs. down!

Amazing how the combination of exercise and eating right is dynamite! emoticon
Enough with the serious stuff - Now back to my usual goofy stuff:

What’s the most common cause of dry skin?

What large migrating shorebird returns to Umatilla National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon at the same time every March?

The long-billed curlew, the largest shorebird in North America.

Jack shook his head, groaned and said "Good Grief" when I told him the towel pun !

Can hardly wait to share it with someone who will APPRECIATE it -
We pun-lovers have to stick together !
emoticon for the laugh

I remember that wrestler was on one of their shows. Until then, I had not heard of him. But Jack had. Reminds me of his 86 year-old, teenie (4' 10", 90 lbs!) Grandmother watching wrestling regularly on tv. She took it SO SERIOUSLY!

Hope you had a Terrific Thursday !
Have a Fabulous Friday !

Wednesday Assortment

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

A 90-year-old man went to the doctor for his annual checkup. His wife accompanied him. As soon as they got into the exam room, the doctor said, “I’m going to need a urine sample and a stool sample.”
The man was hard of hearing, so he looked at his wife and shouted, “What does he want?”
The wife shouted back, “He wants your underwear.”
What rock song was playing when actor Tom Cruise danced in his underwear in the 1983 hit film Risky Business?

“Old Time Rock ’n’ Roll,” performed by Bob Seger.'
(I am SO impressed with myself - I knew this one!! emoticon )

Gene Hackman almost got the part of Mike Brady. Producers cast Robert Reed instead—they didn’t think Hackman was well-known enough.

Among the actors almost cast: Jayne Mansfield as Ginger, Dabney Coleman as the Professor, and Raquel Welch as Mary Ann.

Writer Carl Reiner originally sold this show about a TV comedy writer and his young wife as Head of the Family. Reiner’s choice for the lead role: Johnny Carson.

(This really makes me think about how different these shows might have been with these stars, plus how different the stars lives might have been if they'd been cast.)
William Shatner played Ranger Bob on the Canadian version of Howdy Doody.

The Sopranos (1999–2007)

When he came up with an idea for a mob movie in 1995, David Chase was already a veteran of TV, having won a writing Emmy in 1979 for The Rockford Files. In his screenplay, he wanted to tell the story of his own New Jersey family and acquaintances as if they were mobsters. (Tony Soprano’s mother and psychiatrist, for example, are similar to Chase’s.) Chase’s agent told him that the story would work better as a TV show than it would as a movie, so Chase retooled it. None of the broadcast networks were interested in producing a mob drama, but HBO was. They loved the script and in 1997 commissioned a pilot, which they also loved, but then they put The Sopranos on hold for more than a year. When it finally premiered in January 1999, it was an instant sensation. The show received 21 Emmys and 5 Golden Globes over seven seasons. To date, it’s the most profitable series in the history of cable television.

Monday assortment

Monday, March 18, 2013

Mabel, an elderly woman, was about to turn into an open parking space when a young man in a brand-new red BMW cut around her and stole the space. Mabel was so angry that she rolled down her window and shouted, “I was just about to park there!”
The man looked at her with disdain and replied as he walked off, “Too bad. That’s what you can do when you’re young and fast.”
Annoyed, Mabel rammed her car straight into his BMW. The young man ran back to his car and shouted in a stunned voice, “What did you do that for?”
Mabel smiled and said, “That’s what you can do when you’re old and rich.”
Who was the youngest entertainer to ever host TV’s Saturday Night Live?

Drew Barrymore, in 1982, at age 7 years, 8 months, and 29 days.
After filming on Lost wrapped in 2010, more than 1,100 props were auctioned off by Profiles in History, bringing in close to $1 million. One of the big-ticket items: A piece of fuselage from the series’s crashed plane. It went for $3,000.
The theme song for The Beverly Hillbillies reached #44 on the pop chart in 1962.
