Pick One:
A) Hawaiian Guava Cake
B) Mexican Guava Cake

Jeff (the other one) October 6, 2023 - 8:46 PM - 8:46 PM

cannot pick any as I have never had either. Thank you for allowing me to waste your time with a nonanswer, as is my wont…. I do like your questions @S, just can’t answer this one.

Cyn October 6, 2023 - 8:55 PM - 8:55 PM

A) Hawaiian
I haven’t heard of either, had to look them up and decided that the Hawaiian looked tastier. (Congrats on being first again). 🙂

Who decided it was a good idea to put a Starbucks drive thru in the intersection treat/clayton road?? I swear it gets suuper busy and sometimes the line even blocks the road and intersection. 🤦🤦🤦🤦

THE BLACK KNIGHT October 6, 2023 - 10:18 PM - 10:18 PM

When this Starbucks was first proposed in August of 2014 many of us posted comments right here on Claycord about the traffic problems this location would cause. I wish I was able to find the Claycord article in the archives so I could post a link.

Captain Bebops October 7, 2023 - 4:41 PM - 4:41 PM

Interesting because today when I drove by the Martinez Dutch Bros I noticed it has calmed down a bit. For weeks there was a long line going in but today going downtown about 10 AM there was one car in the line and returning from downtown around 12 PM only a few cars. Maybe the novelty has warn off and will have normal traffic from now on.

Book report: Whipping Star, Frank Herbert,1969. Bit sadistic antics in parts of this one. This has at least one familiar name and type of alien so it may be part of a mini series. This one is mostly how language can be confusing to both the human and the alien. Very little connection between them, their words, or the way they use them yet understanding content and connection is vital. The in’s and out’s of this one can be a bit mind twisting.

Jeff (the other one) October 6, 2023 - 8:50 PM - 8:50 PM

glutton alert…

I have personally eaten about 3 bags worth of candy corn and those mallow pumpkins. all this while trying to lose weight.

On a related note: I am digging all the houses with Halloween decorations. Still will have to hit the area in Discovery Bay (Powell) Dr. J had mentioned. working on my own. Trying to get an Axworthy ghost going. Been unsuccessful the last 2 years. How is this for talking about “whatever?”

Cyn October 6, 2023 - 8:58 PM - 8:58 PM

@Original G
Can totally relate to #9 and #18, and laughed out loud at #13. Good stuff!

Atticus Thraxx October 6, 2023 - 10:02 PM - 10:02 PM

1. No taxes of any kind for 1 year.
2. Free gas for one year.
3. Free ammo for one year.
4. Free groceries for one year.
5. No GEICO commercials for one year.

Scientific literacy is the single most important survival skill we possess.

Three out of the four finest marksmen I know personally are women. There’s something there.

Rock is dead. I can’t tell you when it died, but I’ve been poking it with a stick for a while now and it’s starting to smell.

I honestly don’t give a sh*t what happened to Jimmy Hoffa.

I used to carry on about hating disco while secretly loving it.

I don’t want to be mean and hurt anyone’s feelings, but Metallica is terrible. A garage band with exceptional PR. And I wouldn’t clean my toilet with their OEM whiskey.

Joan Jett sucks too…damn it’s good to get all this out.

Any and all performers named “ Lil” anything, sucks.

Remember when all the teenagers were gonna die from vaping? Whatever happened to that?

I was a slow convert, but I’m close to having all ceramic blade knives.

I haven’t seen a truly stray dog in two years at least.

Look for and read ‘ The Three Body Problem’ by Cixin Liu. The first of an outstanding trilogy.

I keep mowing my neighbors front lawn because he says his dad has his lawnmower. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have a lawnmower. Or a dad. Whatever. He thinks he’s getting over but he’s twice my weight and half my age.

I keep wondering why guys show up at the range in camouflage. But I keep it to myself.

Prediction. In five years there will only be two pharmacies left, CVS and Rite-Aid. Amazon will buy one, and WalMart, the other.

I still don’t know what bath salts were. Or are. Angel Dust for millennials I guess.

They just sentenced the guy who went after the Queen with a crossbow. Something delightfully medieval I kinda wish he’d gotten away with just for the devastating irony. Better if it was a long bow though. Monarchy, even when strictly symbolic is gross. But an American can be forgiven for that stance.

Unpopular take…I didn’t find ‘Breaking Bad’ compelling or Walter White the least bit intimidating. Though there was a 16 year old girl in ‘Game of Thrones’ that terrified me. 🤷

I’ve never eaten alligator.

Except for 12ga and .22 I haven’t bought retail ammunition in 10 years now. Roll your own, says Atticus.

I don’t like watches, never have. Only jewelry I ever wore were dog tags and a wedding band. Both institutions long in my rear view mirror.

What if we find out it was farts that caused all cancer?

I’m not going to suddenly decide I care about women’s soccer just so I can spew my stunted politics. This time. 😎

It’s supposed to be cathartic to split firewood. It’s okay, but digging a deep hole to me is always more satisfying. Plus you never know when you might need a deep, easy to fill in hole.

I don’t care how gnarled and painful my hands eventually get, I refuse to wear Velcro shoes as a matter of principle.

Okay so when does the testosterone go away exactly? I’m waiting. and not patiently. I’m gonna lean into it hard though.

I at the same time envy, and feel sorry for deeply religious people. I may not be a good person, 🤷

Robert Mitchum was vastly underrated. See ‘Night of the Hunter’.

I’m not washing or rinsing out my garbage. If it’s reasonably clean, into the recycling bin, if not I just toss it. A man’s just gotta take a stance now and then. 😝

I have never miscounted , exaggerated or lied on my taxes. I’ve paid all I owe and probably more. Just for the record. Bastids .

Tazo Green Tea. Green tips or Zen.Maybe some honey and lemon. Not those squeeze bottles, a real lemon.

Grizzly bears kill and eat several people a year in North America. Guess how many people get eaten by tigers in India every year? I don’t actually know, but it’s a lot. I mean more than you’d think would be reasonable in 2023. That’s kinda cool.

We all ( well I did) made fun of somebody’s border wall a few years back. No one laughing now.

Trying to learn Mandarin is effing hard. I can’t do it it. Seriously , it’s not if I worked a little harder Id get it, I can’t do it. My mouth can’t make those sounds. Luckily I’ll be long dead before it becomes an issue/requirement.

Coming up with a nutritional satisfying meal every single night is becoming a chore.

On weekends there’s always a line at the local pot store. Literally the only place I ever see a line.

Guy disappeared while swimming up near Point Reyes after other folks saw a large shark. Article said he was an expert water sportsman with years of experience. Really? Expert? Swimming dressed in a seal suit at Point Reyes in September? Sure …expert.

You can spend a fortune on very fine Swiss or German rifle scopes. And if you have the money, great. It’s fine glass. But I buy Nikon. Unfortunately they stopped making rifle scopes a few years ago but there’s a strong secondary market. I buy them up and so should you. ProStaff or Monarch. Make a tight littlex48 spotting scope I’m getting real fond of too. Doesn’t come with a stand or a hard case though.

I’ve (I’d) never bashed a guys skull in with a Stihl Heavy Duty spade shovel. But if was to do such a thing, I know who I’d do it to. It’s my Brooklyn birth I suspect. Forgive me Lord.

Wake me up when kale doesn’t taste like feet.

The very first time I used a microwave, my palms got sweaty.

A very well made, finely built rifle is as close to art as any Monet, Manet, or Rembrandt.

I don’t get thong underwear. Neither the allure, nor the comfort. Or lack there of. I’ve even tried wearing them backwards. 😝

I want to go check if Abe Vigoda is actually dead. But I’m scared he might not be. That would freak me out.

I wonder who holds the record for having the most diseases. Or held the record I suppose.

If there’s one bad cop for every twenty good ones, that’s still a bad ratio.

If you join the Navy and can’t swim, they won’t teach you. Suck it up buttercup.

If you join the Rangers and can’t run, they will teach you. And they want you to do a bunch of hard stuff while you’re running. 🤷

The first stick shift I ever drove was a deuce and a half. If you know what that is, God bless. If you’ve ever done endless donuts in German mud with one, truly, God has smiled upon you.

I went into my bank after work and recognized no one. Kinda weird.

I mean what if the world was really flat. You could go right to the edge. Be kinda cool. I wish I believed dumb stuff sometimes.

I’m one open head wound away from watching my first Fast and Furious movie. Fingers crossed 🤞.

The conveyer belts at my local Riley’s were so dirty and gross I finally had to say something . I said it in German, so it made not have had any effect.

Speaking of Raleys I found a good cheap French red. Beaujolais-Villages Louis Jadot 2021. Pretty sure it was less than $20. Bet Safeway has it.

Go Orioles!

“Coming up with a nutritional satisfying meal every single night is becoming a chore.”

At the risk of being “bashed …(in the) skull … with a Stihl Heavy Duty spade shovel …” may I suggest maybe it’s time for Ensure. Boost is better and Atkins Protein Shake tastes best.

And Metallica are local!

It’s full busy weekend of events for those of us in the Sierra. Today in Carson City is the Halloween Wine Walk with a costume contest, Vintage Market at Due Sorrella and a fabulous gallery showing at Artsy Fartsy Gallery.

Today and tomorrow in Virginia City are the annual Outhouse Races. It is a fun crazy event that should be on everyone’s bucket list

Today in Gardnerville is a fall festival with coffin races

In Reno is the Fall Festival and Pumpkin Throw.

And finally at Palisades Tahoe is the Made in Tahoe Festival today and tomorrow.

Definitely something for everyone happening in this fabulous region

Anything fun or interesting going on in Claycord?

This is the copy from their GoFundMe page:

Recently we were sued for discrimination alleging that all patrons who do not identify as female, including men, non-binary individuals and transgender men, were required to pay full price for their alcoholic beverages while patrons who identify as female were given 50% off their alcoholic beverages and now we are facing a difficult hardship in having to pay for the lawsuit and attorney’s fees.

Go to get gas after soccer, and guy I see drop shopping cart full of toilet paper he just stole from Safeway on denkinger onto clayton rd. I call non EM line again voicing frustration. They don’t care. What are police for if they aren’t going to respond? I back the blue but come on. California laws gotta stop protecting criminals so the PD can do their jobs.

Did the Blue Angels fly over Contra Costa County about 6:15 pm this evening ? I heard the loud sound of jets and saw 3 together. Anyone know what that was?

Ancient Mariner October 7, 2023 - 8:44 PM - 8:44 PM

I caught a glimpse of one, didn’t look sleek like a Blue Angel, more like an F-35, stubby and odd-looking, heading south over DVC. Anybody know what it was? It wasn’t using its transponder.

Captain Bebops October 8, 2023 - 12:31 PM - 12:31 PM

It was not the Blue Angels but probably the Air Force’s version of them. But from the picture I saw elsewhere it was the same kind of jet that went flying by on Weds when I stepped outside in the evening. After that I looked it up and indeed the Air Force has it’s own flying precision team that does promo appearances. The plane on Weds was probably flying out of Travis.

Ricardoh October 8, 2023 - 1:01 PM - 1:01 PM

My wife and I were just watching the news of missiles flying around Israel when two jets went over our house at a low elevation. Unbelievably loud. I jumped out of my chair and got a glimpse of them leaving. They were not blue angels. Scared the heck out of both of us. We recovered. Then they came back going the other way.

Hanne Jeppesen October 9, 2023 - 12:16 PM - 12:16 PM

I heard and saw one lone jet on Saturday night. I agree didn’t look like one of the Blue Angels (have gone into San Francisco several times to see them), but seems reasonable to assume it was part of Fleet Week.
