Penny for your thoughts?

Did you know that if you toss a penny 10,000 up in the air that it will not be head 5000 times but only 4950? That's because of the weight distribution on the coin. The head weighs more and that makes it more likely to fall on the bottom making tails the most common victor!

I wonder how they found that out though. Please don't tell me government research and money was wasted on this fact. And 10,000 times?! I bet it was a couple of bored college students, what do you think?

Off to work!

As You Like It

Well this weekend we started our new play "As You Like It" to a warm welcome by audiences. Thanks to all of you who came to see it and for the rest who haven't yet, we're performing it again at the park for 2 nights next week so you're most welcome indeed to show up!

I hope to get some video footage of the play for next weeks posts. It's been a long weekend (of course) and I'm in a constant state of "worn out". Maybe I can get to bed by 8 tonight? (I'm getting old!)

Getting Popular?

The FFF is attracting more and more attention every week I see! Well, well, I'd better start making them more interesting as time goes on then!

So what should I tell you about today?

Did you know Charlie Brown's father was actually a barbar!?

What about the most common name in all the world is?

Can you guess?

Bob? Nope.

John. No.

Muhammed? Uh... actually... yeah. Wild isn't it?

That's all for now. Have a great weekend folks!

Well, it's been a rough weekend. I'm so tired I don't think I'll ever catch up on sleep! We had our final performances of Beauty and the Beast this weekend and they all went well. "As You Like It" starts this weekend so all of our practices from here on out will be.... long. 6 am came very quickly to me this morning and I am so very tired from this weekend I want to go back to bed and sleep another 7 hours!

Oh well.

Hope everyone elses weekend went well. We start comic strips back once again tomorrow!

FFF what?



Time to explain again what the FFF stands for. It means "Friday's Fun Fact" I've been doing this so long that I keep forgetting we have many new readers everyday who don't have a clue of what I'm talking about so I thought I'd explain it once more.

Today's FFF is about the man above. Mark Twain. Yeah, yeah, he wrote a few famous books but you wanna know something real interesting? He was born in the year 1835. When Haley's Comet came into view. Then died in 1910... when Haley's Comet came back around. Wild huh?

Hope everyone has a great weelend. It's the last call for Beauty and the Beast and I'll be donning the Cogsworth outfit for the final time! Woo-Hoo!

Ta-Daa!!!

Look at that good looking man in the tux on one knee. (to the right) Isn't he a darling!! This is a picture of me performing at the 75th Anniversary show last month. Oh, what a time what a time!

My A/C is back on so everything is good in the world once again! I'm getting ready for the encore presentation of Beauty and the Beast this week. Then for the next two weeks I'll be performing Shakespear's "As you like it" And in July I've been asked to take part in "High School Musical" over at the Rose theater in Ruston. I'm also told that I'll be in "Footloose" as well this September. (maybe I should start charging for these appearances, what do you think?

I'll do a poll tomorrow to decide!

Quick link

Sorry folks! No A/C has delayed my comic strip for the week. I have some "emergency" junk here I break out for such an occasion.

It seems a few of you have craftily found this link already. So I'll provide it openly now for everyone who may not have seen it yet.

It's the failed shooting of my short film I tried to make last year. What ya think?

No A/C!!!

I'm burning up in here! It's been an inferno all weekend at my house. They said they couldn't fix the A/C till later on today. I can't tell you how many pounds I've sweated off in the meantime!

Blah! Short post today is all you get!

FFFF (for Funny!)

So we've talked a little about laughter in this weeks strip but did you know laughter is actually good for you? Besides increases your mood it's also been proven to relieve stress hormones in the body as well as lower blood pressure.

Laughter's also a good way increasing the vascular blood flow throughout you body. In fact, some scientists estimate that laughing 100 times is equivalent to a 10-minute workout on a rowing machine, or to 15 minutes on a stationary exercise bike. Laughing exercises the diaphragm, as well as the abdominal, respiratory, facial, leg, and back muscles!

So you see?! My blog really IS good for your health!

You're welcome and enjoy your weekend folks.

Monday Me

What a weekend! I hope yours went well. I spent mine visiting friends in Branson, MO this weekend and had an awesome time! Now it's back to work, push-push, shove-shove!
I'm glad you all liked the videos from last week. I'm planning on bringing a few more on the site this week before going back to the comic strips. Don't worry. This is only a temporary thing. I have some great comics coming up soon that I know you're all going to like!

And yes, it was my birthday last week. I never mentioned it because it really isn't as big a deal to me as it is other people. The only thing I ever do for my birthday every year is eat over at my mom and dad's, open presents, then go home for bed. The end. Poof! That's it.

But thank you for the hundreds of belated wishes and phone calls over the weeknd. They were much appreciated. Kudos to Kelly for being the only person to wish me "happy b-day" on the actual day of. (Oh, and Hollie... you ARE a terrible friend, but I'll keep you around all the same)

Ok folks, have a great week!

FFF frenzy!




Wow, what a week. I still carry a cough but the rest of my sickness is about done. This has probably been the 2nd worse I've ever been in my life. I'll just be glad when I finally kick the coughing to the side and I am 100% well again!




Now as for our FFF....






After my $5 bill FFF ya'll started e-mailing more questions to me about money. I didn't really answer any e-mails this week because I was sick but it changed my mind for today's FFF. Ok, a lot of you asked about the $1000 bill. Who was on it? Why president Cleveland of course. Do they still make them? No.





Those (as well as the $500 bills) are no longer in circulation. Yeah you could find one on ebay still I imagine but not at a bank. I'm not sure when they stopped making them but I believe it was around the mid 1946 and circulation for them ceased after 1969





So how big a bill did they actually make? Well Andrew Jackson actually graced the cover of a $10,000 bill once. Mainly used as a "gold certificate" but still it's pretty cool. They stopped making those in 1934.

Ok, I'm done for the week. Hey, just a thought here but what do you think about a few more video post for next week as well?
