Cowellian’s First!

S October 27, 2023 - 6:24 PM - 6:24 PM


S October 27, 2023 - 6:27 PM - 6:27 PM

Pick One:
A) Pickled Cod
B) Pickled Salmon
C) Yuck

Cowellian October 27, 2023 - 6:55 PM - 6:55 PM

I’m going with C). There are much better ways to prepare either.
And I am never, ever, doing Lutefisk again!

Cyn October 27, 2023 - 9:10 PM - 9:10 PM

I had a grandfather who loved Lutefisk and buttermilk. (There are two YUCKS right there)

Cowellian October 28, 2023 - 8:54 AM - 8:54 AM

I’d never yuck buttermilk.
I won’t drink it, but my wife uses it to make biscuits, cornbread, etc.

nytemuvr October 28, 2023 - 9:40 AM - 9:40 AM

@COWELLIAN..….I won’t drink it either, just for cooking like your wife. It’s great for soaking chicken livers in before frying them.

Cyn October 28, 2023 - 11:57 AM - 11:57 AM

The yuck was for drinking buttermilk, not for cooking. My mom made the absolute best buttermilk pancakes in the world. Guess I should have been clear.

Hanne Jeppesen October 28, 2023 - 11:42 AM - 11:42 AM

Lutefisk is vile, ugh. Buttermilk is very common in Denmark, served different ways, can be used just like milk with cereal. I like it that way in the summer, I add a little lemon juice and sugar. Also the Danes like it as kind of a dessert soup in the summer, you add a raw egg yolk, (about 1 yolk per one or two cups) then lemon slices and sugar. Or just lemon juice and sugar to taste, then make a merinque (beat egg white stiff with powdered sugar). Or some other toppings like bread cubes that have been fried in butter and sugar and perhaps a little cinnamon.

Roz October 27, 2023 - 7:44 PM - 7:44 PM

@ S ~
Oh, I’m going with C.
Smoked Salmon would be more my likings.

Atticus Thraxx October 27, 2023 - 7:51 PM - 7:51 PM

C. Only thing that should be pickled is pickles.

Cyn October 27, 2023 - 9:06 PM - 9:06 PM

It’s the first time I ever gave you a downvote, but I just don’t like pickled anything.

Jeff (the other one) October 27, 2023 - 9:27 PM - 9:27 PM

Never had either, that I am aware of. I would assume I would prefer cod (Atlantic or ling, I am assuming, not black), but prefer just the fish without being pickled.

Well Folks October 28, 2023 - 9:00 AM - 9:00 AM

Change “yuck” to “barf”

Dawg October 28, 2023 - 9:40 AM - 9:40 AM

C) Yuck… I tried pickled pigs feet once, that was one of the biggest yucks ever!

nytemuvr October 28, 2023 - 4:02 PM - 4:02 PM

@DAWG….Those and pickled eggs in gallon jars were “bar food” years ago. I never got drunk enough to eat either.

Hanne Jeppesen October 29, 2023 - 9:14 AM - 9:14 AM

Pickled pigs feet is a stable of what is a stable of what is considered farm cooking, France, Germany, Denmark other countries. My mother cooked a cabbage dish with pigs feet, I ate the cabbage, but not the pigs feet. The cabbage was cooked very slowly and it turned brown, I’m not sure why I think some kind of broth was added and perhaps some coloring that was also used to make gravy brown.

Angry American October 29, 2023 - 11:48 AM - 11:48 AM

Love pickled pigs feet (mom used to make and can them feels like eons ago) but not weirder than chicken feet in Chinese restaurants “that one is a little rough for me” each to their own

Shulla October 30, 2023 - 11:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Ate pickled pigs feet as a child, outside playing snack. Tried them again as an adult and didn’t care for them.

S October 29, 2023 - 7:02 AM - 7:02 AM

Yep, a big ol’ “C” on this one. I just cant bring myself to the raw stuff: Ceviche, Sushi, Tartare, and such. Yes, I know the acid in the lime ‘cooks’ the Shrimp, but nope…….
This was the topic ’cause a friend pickled some cod and offered. I had to turn it down.
So, no offense to the downed thumb, CYN…
NYTEM… I make Pickled Eggs often. I experiment with different spices and such….

nytemuvr October 29, 2023 - 11:54 AM - 11:54 AM

@S….When I worked in the grocery store in the 70s/80s we had pickled herring in sour cream in the deli section, it came in a jar. As much as I like fish I could never bring myself to give it a taste. Hanne might know if that’s some kind of delicacy from her part of the world.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 29, 2023 - 6:29 PM - 6:29 PM

Try “Kippered Herring” (or “Kipper Snacks”) as they are commonly known. NOM!

nytemuvr October 29, 2023 - 8:01 PM - 8:01 PM

@DR. JELLYFINGER….I like smoked salmon(lox), it’s one of my “treats” when I go shopping. I’m sure I’d like smoked herring, haven’t seen any in the stores I frequent.

Dawg October 30, 2023 - 10:19 AM - 10:19 AM

NYTEMUVR…You’ll find kipper herring in the tuna section. It’s usually on the shelf above the tuna, with the sardines.

Shulla October 30, 2023 - 11:02 AM - 11:02 AM

I love kippered herring. I eat a tin of them with cheese and crackers. Yum yum.

Hanne Jeppesen October 30, 2023 - 12:47 PM - 12:47 PM

Nyte, I’m trying to reply to you, but my comment does not get posted. Not sure why, nothing controversial about it, unless someone don’t like herring.

RunDog October 29, 2023 - 1:34 PM - 1:34 PM

I’m with the Sweet Gherkins only crowd.

Concordejet October 27, 2023 - 7:07 PM - 7:07 PM


Why did the skeleton run away? Because a dog was after his bones.

Winston Churchill had a delightful way of answering his critics. Here are a few of his more colorful put downs.

Winston Churchill Quoted:

“If I were married to you, I’d drink it.”

Responding to a comment from Nancy Astor, who said to Churchill: “If I were married to you, I’d put poison in your coffee.”

Hanne Jeppesen October 29, 2023 - 9:10 AM - 9:10 AM

Another of the Lady Astor and Churchill quotes: At a dinner party he asked her if she would sleep with him for 5 million pounds, she answered “I suppose so”, he then asked her if she would sleep with him for 5 pounds, she answered “Of course not, what kind of women do you think I am”, he answer “We already established that, now we are just discussing the price”.

Atticus Thraxx October 27, 2023 - 8:09 PM - 8:09 PM

Pick none:
A) Puppies, but a breed you don’t like.
B) Kittens, but fifteen of them. With fleas.
C) Babies, but they smell like cabbage and cigarettes.
D) Haagen Dazs, but your least favorite flavor. And kinda melted.

Paranoid pablito October 28, 2023 - 9:13 AM - 9:13 AM

Blend all four and I’ll taste it.

Dawg October 28, 2023 - 10:07 AM - 10:07 AM

A) I don’t want a puppy, too much trouble to house break them.

B) I already have a cat, she doesn’t have any fleas, and kittens are too rambunctious.

C) Babies are only cute when they belong to somebody else.

D) So I will go with Häagen-Dazs…. I like my ice cream kinda melted, and my least favorite flavor is strawberry, but I can tolerate it.

Roz October 28, 2023 - 3:07 PM - 3:07 PM

D) and it’s the same as Dawg’s

RunDog October 29, 2023 - 1:40 PM - 1:40 PM

I’ll take A, B, and D any way they come. C are cute, even if smelly, but I’m glad they’re not mine.

El Jefe October 28, 2023 - 10:37 AM - 10:37 AM

Anybody else sick & tired of the B.M.O. Commercial that seems to be on constantly ??

Stupid Should Hurt October 28, 2023 - 11:40 AM - 11:40 AM

BMO: Bank of Montreal. Yes, a Canadian bank bought out Bank of the West and others.
Digital currency coming next.
What could go wrong with that?

RunDog October 28, 2023 - 3:04 PM - 3:04 PM

Noooooooooooooo! I had been with BOW since it was Security National Bank run by Pete Stark in the ‘60s with very few banking side trips. I was really happy with them until they suddenly wouldn’t take a POD designation on my accounts for me one day. The woman who helped me said she took care of it, but it wasn’t showing up on my statement. When I went back to straighten it out, she got mad at me. In fact, she had lied to me about changing it and I lost complete confidence with a bank that will lie to you. zig had hoped to return there soon because their statements were easy to read, and I always balanced! Made me feel good

S October 29, 2023 - 1:37 PM - 1:37 PM

Can’t say I have ever heard of B.M.O.; El jefe….. Only from your post yesterday…
Just got pack from a drive on I-80 to Pederick’s Produce in Dixon….
Saw billboards for B.M.O. in each direction…

Power outage all around Treat/Clayton Road/Concord Blvd. Some stores are closed. Look at PG&E outages.

RunDog October 28, 2023 - 3:09 PM - 3:09 PM

RunDog slept late. Big doggie bash last night. Rockin’ the house! #1 😎

Dr. Jellyfinger October 29, 2023 - 10:57 AM - 10:57 AM

Here’s some sage advice for you RUNDOG…

RunDog November 2, 2023 - 7:31 PM - 7:31 PM

“The Three Stooges” disgust me!

Atticus Thraxx October 28, 2023 - 7:50 PM - 7:50 PM

What a great World Series so far. I thought a Rangers D-Backs series was gonna be a yawn, but there’s some big league ball getting played. God Bless America! ⚾️🇺🇸

Dr. Jellyfinger October 28, 2023 - 9:48 PM - 9:48 PM

OK…. I watched * listened to the whole thing, understood all (or most ) of it it and now I’m thinking this is it! The limit of my understanding of the modern world. In any case I’m stopping here.

redrazor October 29, 2023 - 12:38 PM - 12:38 PM

Hey Doc: Goose bumps for shure while watching your video link!

Roz October 29, 2023 - 1:06 PM - 1:06 PM

The Mashup was enjoyable, Thanks for Sharing.

FPN October 29, 2023 - 11:54 AM - 11:54 AM

What is with the coverings over all the storm drains. Is it because of the rats or racoons?

RunDog October 29, 2023 - 2:03 PM - 2:03 PM

I heard that the wild animals in the area use them as freeways, migrating to new areas they haven’t “hunted out,” yet. Especially since coyotes and mountain lions are beginning to inhabit suburban areas, They are a threat to our domesticated animals including cats and dogs.

Just came across this site, thought it worth sharing.
Mail order houses
Sutro Baths

nytemuvr October 30, 2023 - 10:38 AM - 10:38 AM

@ORIGINAL G..….I have a couple of Kodachrome slides my Dad took of the outside of the Sutro Baths from the early 60s. Pretty spectacular inside.

Dawg October 30, 2023 - 10:42 AM - 10:42 AM

When I was a kid, we would go ice skating at Sutro’s and visit the museum. I remember when it burned down.

Atticus Thraxx October 30, 2023 - 6:47 PM - 6:47 PM

I was wondering if any of you had ever visited Mount Fuji. I’m thinking about a spring trip and I’m reading about the Five Lakes. And the hot springs. Anyone been? Have any advice, tips, or what have you? I get it’s crazy expensive, but besides that?

S October 31, 2023 - 12:30 PM - 12:30 PM

Mid-Week Pick One:
A) Vintage Bell & Howell Home Movie Projector
B) Vintage Eastman Kodak Home Movie Projector
C) Last thing I wanna do is watch your old home movies !

RunDog November 2, 2023 - 7:39 PM - 7:39 PM

A. Ours was a Bell and Howell, I think.

Cyn November 2, 2023 - 9:19 PM - 9:19 PM

Growing up, we definitely had a movie projector (I remember small film reels and slides) but I don’t remember the brand. Oh man, I’d love to watch those old things again but they’re long gone. Nice mid-weeker.

S November 3, 2023 - 5:02 PM - 5:02 PM

It is a “Brownie 500 Movie Projector; A Product of Kodak”
Still have original box. It runs well too.
Okay….. Get your “Tasters” set for tonight’s Whatever; Pick One….
Actually, I may not post til the morning…… We’ll see how it goes……

Original G November 1, 2023 - 1:33 PM - 1:33 PM

Do you have and use an ATM card ? ? ?

The Old Goat November 3, 2023 - 10:25 AM - 10:25 AM

No, I don’t use a debit card for anything, only credit cards for all purchases and bill paying. I don’t have a debit card, only ATM cards, for any personal withdrawals, not purchases. Credit card use generates cash back and/or valuable points, which can be used for free flights and hotel stays. And, for those who claim credit cards charge too much interest, don’t spend more than you can afford to repay, and always pay your balance on time. Spending discipline is the key. I don’t pay banks, they pay me.
