What is the shortest month of the year?? The answer is MAY because it only got 3 letter

Dorothy May 19, 2023 - 7:18 PM - 7:18 PM

Book report: Then Beggars Could Ride, R F Nelson 1976. If you never heard of this one I wouldn’t be surprised. At a time when technicians rule; when whatever your idea of utopia can be created with other like minded people in various pods, it can be boring. The supposed hero starts with living in the American Flapper era. He is also suicidal and remains so off and on. He runs away to a harbor to become a sailor in an era about 1890, jumps to an era where Sherlock Holmes is real, and on and on. This book has been autographed to my brother and I doubt he ever got past the 1st chapter. So unless you are into moody stories, don’t bother with this one.

Cowellian May 19, 2023 - 7:22 PM - 7:22 PM

Cowellian’s first.

Y’all have a great weekend!

Shasta Daisy May 19, 2023 - 7:25 PM - 7:25 PM

Happy Friday wishes to the Mayor and Cowellian.

Enjoy something about every day and be happy.

Happy Friday, Shasta! So great to hear from you. Hope you’re doing well. 🙂

Cowellian May 19, 2023 - 8:14 PM - 8:14 PM

Happy Friday to you, Shasta! I’m delighted to see you here again!

Jeff (the other one) May 19, 2023 - 8:36 PM - 8:36 PM

Nothing to add, ‘cept, I am really enjoying this glass, ell, bottle of wine.

What are these characters doing along Farm Bureau Rd. with 2 people on bicycles and some robotic vehicle that precedes them? They said they are mapping bicycle lane, but they’ve been doing it for many months along the same street. Who is paying for this nonsense?

S May 20, 2023 - 7:05 AM - 7:05 AM

Saw them about 2 weeks ago; concord av and diamond bvd.
Did look peculiar… For got about it til your post….
You can bet we’re paying for it…..

The Fearless Spectator May 20, 2023 - 9:05 AM - 9:05 AM

Over by Home Depot Concord there were two guys wearing black, including masks on an electric tricycle following what looked like a large ice chest on wheels. Perhaps they are experimenting with a robotic vending machine.

Carmen May 20, 2023 - 9:16 AM - 9:16 AM

They have been doing this for about 2 years around Detroit ave too…I always wondered what is the purpose.

Polarbeaemarket May 20, 2023 - 11:36 AM - 11:36 AM

I see them often as well, and assumed it was some kind of autonomous vehicle testing.

Dr. Jellyfinger May 20, 2023 - 6:45 AM - 6:45 AM

My pet peeve of the day is people who spell “border” incorrectly.

A border is a boundary, as in U.S.A. / Mexico border.

A boarder is someone who pays for meals and lodging.

I can’t believe there are so many people who get this wrong.

Hanne Jeppesen May 20, 2023 - 11:29 AM - 11:29 AM

I know the difference, however I find sometimes when typing on the computer I make stupid mistakes that I never did when I had to handwrit a letter. Also you have to watch everything carefully because of autofill, sometimes the computer is ahead of you and gets it wrong, then you have to go back and correct. Sometime autofill is good, helps with spelling other times it’s a big nuisance.

nytemuvr May 20, 2023 - 3:27 PM - 3:27 PM

@DR. JELLYFINGER..…One that bugs me is when people use “breaks” for the things that stops their cars, it’s “brakes”. But you can break your brakes…hmmmm???

Dr. Jellyfinger May 20, 2023 - 6:39 PM - 6:39 PM

Well NYTEMUVR, I was saving that one for Sunday…. but I have plenty more.

Good call.

Dawg May 20, 2023 - 5:20 PM - 5:20 PM

Hanne, LanguageTool is a free grammar checker that will proofread as you type. It will point out most spelling and grammar mistakes and offer suggestions.

Dawg May 20, 2023 - 12:21 PM - 12:21 PM

One of my pet peeves is when people mispronounce the word “often.” The t is silent, the word is pronounced “ofen.” I had a girlfriend in high school, and she would always correct me on it. After all these years, it stuck with me, and now it bugs me when I hear “often.” Another pet peeve is when people write “alot,” a lot is two words.

S May 20, 2023 - 1:34 PM - 1:34 PM

and that’s why I offen misspell the word…

I was always told to spell like you speak…. my spelling is terrible…

Hanne Jeppesen May 20, 2023 - 10:56 PM - 10:56 PM

That is not true in the English language, there are several letters that are pronounced different. The Dansish language is terrible that way. Often the d is silent, like land, which in Danish means country, but we don’t pronounce the d. Several words starts with hv, but the h is silent. German however is pronounced the same way it is spelled, but the grammar is awful. A door might be a he, a chair a she and a fish neuter. Mark Twain wrote a hilarious short story called “The awful German language. If you at all like Mark Twain and like to read and want a good laugh I highly recommend it.

Kentucky Derby May 20, 2023 - 6:27 PM - 6:27 PM

Not pronouncing the “t” and pronouncing the “t” are both correct. Your girlfriend was right. See Webster’s.

Dawg May 21, 2023 - 12:15 AM - 12:15 AM

You’re right, but Webster’s, and other dictionaries, are frequently being updated. When I was in school, pronouncing the t was incorrect.

Cowellian May 20, 2023 - 7:53 PM - 7:53 PM

You are right about often. Now, do forte.

If you are talking about the musical term to play something loud, it’s pronounced fot-tay.
But if you’re talking about something that you’re particularly well suited for, it’s pronounced fort.

Dawg May 21, 2023 - 12:33 AM - 12:33 AM

Try Celtic, the correct pronunciation is keltic, but since Americans mispronounce, and even coin new words, modern dictionaries have to update their pronunciations and definitions.

Captain Bebops May 21, 2023 - 9:23 AM - 9:23 AM

Try Sanskrit. There are eleven tenses and precise pronunciation for Devanagari script. There is even a translation method of translating a sentence to Sanskrit and from it translating back to another language.

Original G May 20, 2023 - 3:32 PM - 3:32 PM
The Fearless Spectator May 20, 2023 - 7:53 PM - 7:53 PM

Mine is “Anyways” instead of “Anyway”.
Whenever I hear someone say “Anyways”, I expect them to say something else such as, “Liketa hitcha upside the head.”
But as Erma Bombeck said, “The grass is always greener over the septic tank.”

S May 20, 2023 - 6:59 AM - 6:59 AM

Pick One:
A) Bok Choy
B) Leek
C) Yuck

Hanne Jeppesen May 20, 2023 - 11:33 AM - 11:33 AM

Leeks, my dad use to grow them. A favorite dish were porkchops served with leeks, carrots, new potatoes (first crop of my dad’s potatoes were very small and firm, had a nutty and buttery taste) or brussesl sprouts. Steam the veggies, then coat with butter and fresh chopped parsley or dill.

Cyn May 20, 2023 - 11:36 AM - 11:36 AM

Haven’t had Bok Choy that I know of and am not even sure about a leek, but after reading about them, I choose B).

Captain Bebops May 20, 2023 - 12:00 PM - 12:00 PM

A. I’ve sometimes cooked bok choy stir frys.

Jeff (the other one) May 20, 2023 - 5:52 PM - 5:52 PM

Definitely leeks. Great in soup.

Hanne Jeppesen May 20, 2023 - 8:05 PM - 8:05 PM

Agree my mother always added leeks when she made chicken soup.

S May 21, 2023 - 9:12 AM - 9:12 AM

“A” is my preference

Dr. Jellyfinger May 20, 2023 - 9:31 AM - 9:31 AM

I finally figured out what my favorite commercial was, it was the original Geico pig Maxwell hanging out the car window as they drive down the road he’s holding a pin wheel and shouting “Wheeeeeeeeeee”!

Captain Bebops May 20, 2023 - 12:02 PM - 12:02 PM

I mute audio during commercials. But a couple years ago ad agencies got wise to that and added text for what was being sold. Otherwise most ads look like a bunch of people acting silly.

2centsworth May 20, 2023 - 4:52 PM - 4:52 PM

Escaped being bacon too it appears.

Jeff (the other one) May 21, 2023 - 5:36 AM - 5:36 AM

That one made me smile and cringe at the same time. I can appreciate the play on the phrase, but that “wheee” annoyed the heck outta me.

Original G May 20, 2023 - 9:59 AM - 9:59 AM

Ahead of Fire season for those who have Alert Wildfire bookmarked and wondered where all the camera views went URL has changed

Juryisout May 20, 2023 - 10:21 AM - 10:21 AM

Haven’t watched regular TV in over a year (just no commercial movies). My wife was watching her regular garbage and I walked thru the room for about 10 different recorded series.
Wow talk about woke garbage and commercials. I don’t see how anybody watches that trash on TV nowadays stuff and all they gain on since down people’s throats and woke crap.

Hanne Jeppesen May 20, 2023 - 11:36 AM - 11:36 AM

I have been listening to “Mack the Knife” since the sixties, mostly by Ella Fitzgerald, but also love the Bobby Darin version. I know the most of the words, however it was not until recently that I learned what the song were about.

So a mystery question, what exactly is the song “Mack the Knife” about?

nytemuvr May 20, 2023 - 1:44 PM - 1:44 PM

@HANNE JEPPESEN….Always thought it was about a Jack the Ripper type, don’t forget Satchmo’s version.

Hanne Jeppesen May 20, 2023 - 4:23 PM - 4:23 PM

Yes, l know Satchmo’s version. I don’t care for it. It is about a murdered MacHeath. Some young people on Utube we’re listening to it and one of them figured it out. However, she thought all the women Jinny Diver, Suki Tawdry, a few more were victims as well, but someone wrote they were hookers lining up to help MacHeath spend the money he stole from his murder victim. Amazing such a nice song can be so dark. It is original from a German opera. When l send the Bobby Darin version to my German girlfriend, she only knew it in German.

Dawg May 20, 2023 - 5:55 PM - 5:55 PM

I read somewhere that it’s about Jack MacHeath, a butcher, who was a serial killer in London. He escaped to South America for 20 years, and returned to London killing prostitutes. That’s why in the song, they say, “now that Macky’s back in town, look out, old Macky’s back!” The women mentioned in the song were the prostitutes he murdered. It was rumored that he was Jack the Ripper, but never proven.

Hanne Jeppesen May 20, 2023 - 8:08 PM - 8:08 PM

That sounds right, however there’s a line in the song that goes, the line forms to the right, thus someone thought it was hookers lining up to help him spend his stolen money. Either could be right not that it matters, but fun to speculate.

Dawg May 21, 2023 - 12:47 AM - 12:47 AM

Hanne, what you said about the line forming on the right makes sense. Now I’m wondering if he murdered them after he had his fun with them.

Hanne Jeppesen May 21, 2023 - 11:49 AM - 11:49 AM

Ha. ha, could be. I wouldn’t put it past him.

Bob May 20, 2023 - 12:51 PM - 12:51 PM

I just want to tell you both good luck, we’re all counting on you.

FPN May 20, 2023 - 4:15 PM - 4:15 PM

I know money is tight, but our furry friends at the animal shelter, could use some toys.
It makes your heart feel good and brings joy to our furry friends.

El Jefe May 20, 2023 - 5:09 PM - 5:09 PM

I am really tired of the Covid commercial on TV , where did they get these people, so annoying!!

Juryisout May 20, 2023 - 9:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Most commercials according to my wife the actor pools for them is who can be the weirdest and most woke crap. We try pretty hard to avoid the news or any commercials. It’s not that hard to do when we record everything.

Dr. Jellyfinger May 21, 2023 - 10:45 AM - 10:45 AM

I also really like the New Day USA commercials with Juliana Folk revealing just a little more cleavage with each new commercial.

Jojo The Circus Clown May 20, 2023 - 7:32 PM - 7:32 PM

Here is some “food for thought” … pun intended.

I saw this recently while studying for my certification as a food is medicine practitioner.

“Without proper diet, medicine is of no use … With proper diet medicine is of no need”

Chew on that neighbor!

Jojo The Circus Clown May 22, 2023 - 12:18 AM - 12:18 AM

Anybody catch Dave Chappelle’s recent stand-up routine in San Francisco … just keeps getting worse by his telling of the state of the city. Really sad about that once wonderful city. What a cryin’ shame.

The Fearless Spectator May 22, 2023 - 9:31 AM - 9:31 AM

NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace decided to flip off the camera in a post race interview.
Always the charmer, he is unique as he is the only driver with a Continental Kit on his car.

The Fearless Spectator May 22, 2023 - 9:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence coming to a Major League Baseball game near you:
The LA Dodgers rolled over, so to speak, for the Sisters.
Funny, there doesn’t seem to be any actual data as to how many, err, members the Sisters have. Therefore it’s curious a ball team would capitulate to a group of unknown size, that likely don’t attend ball games (at least this kind) anyway.
Something tells me this is another example of the Alissa Heinerscheid effect:
Never pi** on your own client base.

Dr. Jellyfinger May 22, 2023 - 11:13 PM - 11:13 PM

The movie “AIRPLANE!” was based on the movie “Zero Hour” I never knew that!

nytemuvr May 23, 2023 - 6:43 PM - 6:43 PM

@DR. JELLYFINGER….No one speaking “jive” on that plane.

Dr. Jellyfinger May 24, 2023 - 3:18 PM - 3:18 PM

Well, that was just a 5 minute clip of the movie highlights……
I’ll have to watch the whole movie to see fo sho.

Dr. Jellyfinger May 24, 2023 - 10:06 PM - 10:06 PM

OK. I just watched “Zero Hour”
No Soul Brothers speaking jive but there were 3 Scotsmen speaking with heavy Scottish accents who were drinking a bottle of booze in the back of the plane. Nothing else was very comical in the film but I couldn’t help but laugh at all the “Airplane!” scenes I recognized.
Give it a watch when you have 90 minutes to spare.

S May 23, 2023 - 5:58 PM - 5:58 PM

anyone aware of any planned flyover this weekend?

haven’t seen any publicity yet. May 23, 2023 - 6:08 PM - 6:08 PM

@S – Not aware of any, but you should expect it to happen.
