Every time I get on Claycord I see ads for women in yoga pants, many of the with pistols. So a poll,
What’s creepier?
1. That Google stalks me wherever I go on the internets.
2. I’m into women in yoga pants carrying pistols.

An old cowboy went to a barber shop for a haircut and a shave. His wrinkled and chapped face was like leather, and he mentioned to the barber that he hadn’t had a close shave in years. So the barber pulled out a wooden marble, and told the cowboy to put it between his cheek and gums, and the barber would push it around during the shave. After the barber was done, the cowboy said “I haven’t had this close a shave in years! But let me ask you a question, what would have happened if I swallowed the marble?” The barber replied “that’s no problem. After the marble passes through your system, just bring it back in. That’s what my other customers do.”

I was today years old when I discovered the Hawaii 5-0 theme has lyrics. Here they are, presented by none other than Sammy Davis Jr. Enjoy, and you’re welcome. (The Bonanza theme song has lyrics too, well worth looking up and memorizing)

To Do List November 3, 2023 - 10:37 PM - 10:37 PM

The show was called Hawaii 5-O because Hawaii was the 50th state, according to fan sites.

Talking about dead celebrities I remember reading about Dr. Hunter S. Thompson’s daily routine. Now I don’t hold drug addicts in any higher regard than many of you. Unless they’re really good at it. My kids were raised with his work in our house and I like to think it has a positive effect. Well, they’re not drug addicts, and they both read. One of my five heroes, writing wise.
Witness, a master at work:

3:00 p.m. rise

3:05 Chivas Regal [whisky] with the morning papers, Dunhills [cigarrettes]

3:45 cocaine

3:50 another glass of Chivas, Dunhill

4:05 first cup of coffee, Dunhill

4:15 cocaine

4:16 orange juice, Dunhill

4:30 cocaine

4:54 cocaine

5:05 cocaine

5:11 coffee, Dunhills

5:30 more ice in the Chivas

5:45 cocaine, etc., etc.

6:00 grass to take the edge off the day

7:05 Woody Creek Tavern for lunch-Heineken, two margaritas, coleslaw, a taco salad, a double order of fried onion rings, carrot cake, ice cream, a bean fritter, Dunhills, another Heineken, cocaine, and for the ride home, a snow cone (a glass of shredded ice over which is poured three or four jig­gers of Chivas)

9:00 starts snorting cocaine seriously

10:00 drops acid

11:00 Chartreuse [French liquer], cocaine, grass

11:30 cocaine, etc, etc.

12:00 midnight, Hunter S. Thompson is ready to write

12:05–6:00 a.m. Chartreuse, cocaine, grass, Chivas, coffee, Heineken, clove cigarettes, grapefruit, Dunhills, orange juice, gin, continuous pornographic movies.

6:00 the hot tub-champagne, Dove Bars, fettuccine Alfredo

8:00 Halcyon

8:20 sleep

Any person who can look you in the eye and drink straight gin, needs consideration.

“colesaw” at 7:05 made me laugh.

The routine was documented by E. Jean Carroll in her memoir, Hunter: The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson.

Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂

Dunhill – a very sophisticated choice, there – never knew that about the man.
I bought a girl a pack of Dunhills once, to try to win her favour. She’d never heard of them. She never smoked them because the pack was too nice to open. So I had to buy her another pack and smoke some of them first before I gave her the rest, so she wouldn’t feel bad about opening the pack. We’re still friends fifty years later.

Atticus Thraxx November 4, 2023 - 5:41 PM - 5:41 PM

Wow Ancient One, I bet you were(are) a charming devil. I never had one. I used to see them in the store in their own separate glass display case. I have had Gauloises and Gitanes. Too hard core for me. I had Turkish cigarettes once I can’t name now, those were pretty tasty. With some dark, syrupy Turkish coffee that’d keep you up for two days in a tiny cup. Good times.

Love Hunter. His writing was next level. The movie Fear and Loathing with Depp and Benicio is fantastic. How accurate?, I would like to think very. The casino scene been there done that. I don’t like a drug addict who can’t roll, they are a waste of time if nothing creative comes out of it.

Book report: Dandelion Wine, Ray Bradbury, 1946-1957. A feel good fantasy about a 12 year boy’s summer in a small mid-west town. From the first gathering of dandelions at the beginning of summer of 1928 to last bottling of the wine at the end of summer. All the different ways an early preteen sees life. If you ever wanted to immerse yourself in a fantastical magic summer this one is for you. (P.S. Until I read this one it never occurred to me that you could make wine from weeds.)

Hanne Jeppesen November 3, 2023 - 9:55 PM - 9:55 PM

With all that is going on in the world I have revisited some of my favorite protest songs of the sixties, I can’t really list them in any particular order they are all good in their own way. Either because of the lyrics or who is singing them or both: Phil Ochs Draft Dodger Rag, Universial Soldier by Donovan, Eve of Destruction by Barry McQuire, Handsome Johnny song by Richie Havens, A hard rain is gonna fall, written by Bob Dylan, I prefer the Pete Seeger version, Masters of War always thought Pete Seeger version was the best until I heard Eddie Vedder singing is at the Bob Dylan 30 year anniversary concert. And can’t forget Country Joe and the FIsh, Fixing to Die Rag. He played at Todos Santos park some years ago, I saw him in Golden Gate park in the late nineties. I know there are others Fortunate Son CCR, Ohio Neil Young, I listed the ones that immediately came to mind. Feel free to add to the list. I’m sure i have overlooked some.

“Leaving On A Jet Plane,” and with all the controversy about the nature of sexually explicit books in public schools, I would go with “Puff The Magic Dragon.” It’s the perfect song about a child’s loss of innocence.
I like anything by Peter, Paul, and Mary.

Hanne Jeppesen November 4, 2023 - 3:54 PM - 3:54 PM

Dawg l agree about Peter, Paul and Mary. I chose songs that especially was about war.

Dawg November 4, 2023 - 6:28 PM - 6:28 PM

Hanne, That’s why I included “Leaving On A Jet Plane.” It’s about a guy going off to war.

Hanne Jeppesen November 5, 2023 - 9:09 PM - 9:09 PM

Dawg, Thanks for informing me (I’m not being sarcastic) I remember the song very well, I related it to my personal life at the time. I was an au pair in Westport for almost 2 years, friends were always leaving, some of the guys we hung out with went to Vietnam (all I knew made it back) some of my other au pair girl friends went back to their home country, although returned later to the US. I went back to Denmark for 3 months, leaving behind the guy I had dated all summer and was madly in love with. However, I got very homesick and wanted to see my parents, friends, and my country again. After 3 months I was eager to return to the States. The guy I had been dating had in the meantime been send to Korea, and I had to wait another 6 months before he returned.

Cowellian November 6, 2023 - 12:05 PM - 12:05 PM

Last Train to Clarksville was also about going off to war, but the Monkees had no idea about where it was or what was happening there.

@HANNE JEPPESEN……I’m surprised no one mentioned “War” by Edwin Starr….

Starbucks on Landana and concord Blvd charged me 80 cents for a request of 1 pump of mocha rather than the normal amount in a mocha latte. What the? I told her I get the same drink every day at various Starbucks and have never been charged that. She called the manager over who told me it’s a special order! She argued with me that what they are charging is correct. I told her forget it and drove right through. That location is notorious for getting orders wrong and now they are pulling this crap? Avoid that location! Didn’t get her name but the mgr had blonde hair and glasses.

@Plinko – Wow cool reply, bro. Have you been dying to use that stupid line but never found the right post? Sorry but this one wasn’t the right post either. It’sme did not present this story as a major problem in their life. He or she just shared their experience – under a Talk About Whatever heading – being overcharged at a Starbucks. You made assumptions about an anonymous poster. You also could’ve assumed (and posted) the buyer was overcharged because he/she was Black. Either way, you don’t know. It’sme relayed a story about a particular Starbucks – that’s all. But ya, blow it out of proportion and turn buying a cup of coffee into a racial problem. “Sigh”. No wonder there’s so many problems in this world.

FPN November 5, 2023 - 1:42 PM - 1:42 PM

You were totally correct. White peoples problems.

Pick One:
A) Candied Sweet Potatoes
B) Candied Yams

Captain Bebops November 4, 2023 - 9:31 AM - 9:31 AM

B) because I find A) too sweet for me but that might depend on the recipe. At least the recipe my mother used was too sweet. So it is Yams all the way. 🦃

Jeff (the other one) November 4, 2023 - 10:32 AM - 10:32 AM

yes to A and B, though I am also good if they are not candied.

I love sweet potatoes. I like to boil and fry them. Have not tried candied sweet potatoes.

Hanne Jeppesen November 6, 2023 - 11:18 AM - 11:18 AM

I love potatoes, my dad who was a Gardner grew all kinds of vegetables, but his speciality was potatoes, we didn’t have sweet potatoes in Denmark. The first time I cook sweet potatoes was Thanksgiving 1976, it was the first Thanksgiving meal I cooked after getting married. A girl friend helped, I had bought November 76 Gourmet magazine, and my girlfriend, husband and I cooked almost everything on that menu. One was sweet potatoes with orange juice, and orange rind. If I remember correctly I cooked the potatoes a little, then put them in a baking dish with orange juice, rind and brown sugar and heated them in the oven. Lately I mostly use the yellow sweet potatoes, they are a little more firm than the orange ones, and have a nutty taste.

In my neighborhood this week. Gentleman purposely tried to drive into or onto Bart tracks at North Concord Bart around noon on Thursday. Took out fences, water spraying everywhere. At least I think it was water. Then Friday night a couple went at it. Yelling and fighting up and down the street. Police came out The male was unmanagable, but managed to stash his pints of Hennessy in the bushes and poop on the sidewalk before being arrested. Crazy times crazier people.

@ORIGINAL G…..The family stayed at Camp Curry twice in the early 60s and watched the Fire Falls. Only drove throught the tree once, as I remember, on an extended family car caravan to Yosemite…fun days for sure.

Dawg November 5, 2023 - 4:06 PM - 4:06 PM

If it wasn’t for John Muir, and President Theodore Roosevelt, we wouldn’t have a Yosemite, the city of San Francisco wanted to build a dam and flood the valley. John Muir lobbied against it and took President Roosevelt on a tour of the park. A bill was sent to congress and Yosemite was declared a national park.

Cowellian November 6, 2023 - 11:56 AM - 11:56 AM

We saw a lot of National Parks during our 2016 road trip, and Theodore Roosevelt National Park was definitely one of our favorites.

Hanne Jeppesen November 5, 2023 - 9:13 AM - 9:13 AM

Is Camp Curry the tent cabin? For years The Scandinavian Club had a trip to Yosemite every Memorial Day. I went many times, took my daughter when she was 8 (1988) we would hike up the Mist Trail to the top of the waterfall. One year when she was 15 we hiked to the top of Yosemite Fall, a fair strennous hike, but worth it. We stayed in the litte wood cabins, but when the park flooded, 1994 I think, the cabins got flooded and destroyed the cabins, so after that we stayed in the tent cabins. When my cousin and her husband was visiting me in 2007, we stayed outside the park at a motel. My relatives thought Yosemite was the most spectacular place they had ever been to, and they have travelled a lot all over Europe. I love Yosemite.

ClayDen November 5, 2023 - 8:26 PM - 8:26 PM

I second on Yosemite being absolutely beautiful. I would put it in my top 6 along with Glacier National Park, The Icefields Parkway in Alberta Canada, and Lakes Como and Orta in Italy. The most beautiful IMHO is the Geirangerfjord in Norway.

Hanne Jeppesen November 6, 2023 - 12:22 PM - 12:22 PM

Clayden I have been to Lake Como, it is beautiful. My exhusband and I had bought a 1982 BMW that we picked up at the factory in Germany (Munchen) we then toured Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Northern Italy before making it up to Denmark. One of my husband co worker were travelling with us, he was very impressed with Switzerland, thought the whole country looked like a postcared. I normally don’t like to compare nature, who is too say that mountains are more beautiful than the coast line etc. However, Yosemite holds a special place in my heart because I have been there so many times with good friends from The Scandinavian Club, and also because I often took my daughter as she was growing up, so many nice memories. Want my ashes scattered there.

ClayDen November 6, 2023 - 9:43 PM - 9:43 PM

I love Yosemite and feel fortunate to live so close to it. My favorite part is Tuolumne Meadows in the late spring when it’s green and the water is running. I like to wander out into the meadow and be at peace; I feel like I’m in an outdoor cathedral. We spent 3 nights at Lake Como last year and one at Lake Garda. We spent a month driving around Italy this year at the lakes and Tuscany. We spent 14 nights at the lakes, 6 at Orta, 5 at Garda (both north and south areas), 3 at Iseo and a day trip to Maggiore from Orta. We absolutely loved Lake Orta; it’s beautiful, peaceful and serene. There are very few Americans and we really felt like we were in Italy. We spent our first 4 nights at Orta and had planned to spend the last two nights of our trip in Milan, but changed our plans and spent those two nights back at Lake Orta.

Stayed at Camp Curry once in the 60s with my best friend from high school and her family. Totally afraid bears were going to claw through the tent. Saw the Fire Falls at night. impressive! Even though I was California born, I regret to say I’ve never seen the big trees. Somehow they were never on our route to visit relatives in SoCal.

A) Paper
I have nothing against plastic.
They only ask if you need a bag so they can charge you for it.

Cowellian November 9, 2023 - 9:32 AM - 9:32 AM

B) Plastic – We could ask for paper, but we recycle and get a lot of use from those plastic bags. Stores don’t charge for bags here.

I need a supply every once in a while as part of Q-ing prep…. I can usually get a nice stack at WINCO; they don’t charge me when I ask to grab some.

Gasoline price disparity between here and Citrus Heights, near Sacramento. Using Costco as the standard, regular, not premium.
Citrus Heights, $4.15

Why should there be such a difference over such a short distance?

Atticus Thraxx November 9, 2023 - 8:20 PM - 8:20 PM

“…the only sport where the defense has the ball”
Narrator: It measures just 9 inches in circumference, weighs only about 5 ounces, and it made of cork wound with woolen yarn, covered with two layers of cowhide, and stiched by hand precisely 216 times.
It travels 60 feet 6 inches from the pitcher’s mound to home–and it can cover that distance at nearly 100 miles an hour. Along the way it can be made to twist, spin, curve, wobble, rise, or fall away.
The bat is made of turned ash, less than 42 inches long, not more than 2 3/4 inches in diameter. The batter has only a few thousandths of a second to decide to hit the ball. And yet the men who fail seven times out of ten are considered the game’s greatest heroes.
It is played everywhere. In parks and playground and prison yards. In back alleys and farmers fields. By small children and by old men. By raw amateurs and millionare professionals. It is a leisurely game that demands blinding speed. The only game where the defense has the ball. It follows the seasons, beginning each year with the fond expectancy of springtime and ending with the hard facts of autumn.
Americans have played baseball for more than 200 years, while they conquered a continent, warred with one another and with enemies abroad, struggled over labor and civil rights and the meaning of freedom.
At the games’s heart lie mythic contradictions: a pastoral game, born in crowded cities; an exhilarating democratic sport that tolerates cheating and has excluded as many as it has included; a profoundly conservative game that sometimes manages to be years ahead of its time.
It is an American odyssey that links sons and daughters to father and grandfathers. And it reflects a host of age-old American tensions: between workers and owners, scandal and reform, the individual and the collective.
It is a haunted game, where each player is measured by the ghosts of those who have gone before. Most of all, it is about time and timelessness, speed and grace, failure and loss, imperishable hope, and coming home.
-Ken Burns, Baseball
