It’s a HUUUGE increase. I guess they gotta pay for Patti Poppe’’s salary somehow….

I think I heard something like $34 more a month starting in January. 🙁

I’m 27,768,113th in line of secession for the presidency, so what your step.
Dan Quayle got a bad rap. I can’t spell it either most days. Sorry, no more politics. I stay out of the Politics thread. the Mayor nd his goons know why. 😁
Limes are a superfood. Whatever that means.
I’d give up 20 % of the performance of my vehicle for 12.5% better fuel efficiency. Next time anyway.
Every predator you see in nature is half- mad with hunger. Don’t remember where I heard it, but it stuck with me.
I’m gonna keep doing this until the Mayor stops me. Or I get distracted by something shiny.
Know one ever talks about Leviticus. They should.
Amazon has gone from free 2-day shipping to burying shipping across pricing and getting it to you wherever the hell they feel like it.
I’m gonna bring raised, white lettering on tires back. Not sure how.
If you can make black women laugh, you have a friend. For reals.
Someone they told us was really smart once bought a company worth maybe 20 billion for 44 billion and within a year got its value down to somewhere around 16 billion. I’m glad I’m not that smart.
Ronnie Woods maybe an absolute poof, but he’s an underrated guitarist. But yeah, a big time poof.
Steve Irwin got what he had coming to him. Convince me otherwise.
Is it unreasonable to expect people who want to live here master the language and give our laws at least the consideration we do? Doesn’t seem a big ask.
Once I was driving east of Stuttgart and took side roads to try to get around military convoys and drove 5 miles deep into Luxembourg . No checkpoint, no fuss. At the time I didn’t even know Luxembourg was a country. Imagine my surprise.
Within 30 seconds of a mango going bad, your refrigerator smells like an outhouse at the Oakland Coliseum.
While I don’t hold any religion in high regard, Islam in particular seems virulent and inexorable. With all due respect to peaceful observants. And they do exist in multitudes.

Cyn November 17, 2023 - 9:49 PM - 9:49 PM

@Atticus Thraxx
I read it all and will comment on just three:
1) What does the Mayor and his goons know that others on here don’t?
2) Never give up your vehicle’s performance for anything.
3) Raised white letters on tires haven’t gone away…I’ve always had them and they say: Goodyear Wrangler

Atticus Thraxx November 18, 2023 - 7:18 PM - 7:18 PM

Hey CYN,
1. As diplomatically as I can put it, historically there’s been enough editorial objections to my style of political inter course that my continued contributions may not have been welcome. So I went to Twitter and it was fine until the nazis came back and I got banned for 30 days. Who knew nazis were so sensitive? 😝
2. My heart tells me you’re absolutely right. But my head every once in a while gets a word in.
3. You rock. I can see it in my mind. 👊

Cyn November 19, 2023 - 6:44 PM - 6:44 PM

Thanks for responding. Sounds like you made some very interesting contributions and I won’t pry. And I know what you mean about your head. Also, not sure that I rock but my tires sure do. 🙂

Atticus Thraxx November 19, 2023 - 7:55 PM - 7:55 PM

Truth is I can be pretty irritating CYN, and not everyone knows how to respond to it. I’m glad you do. 👊😎

Dorothy November 17, 2023 - 9:17 PM - 9:17 PM

Book reports: #1 – Sleeping Planet, William R Burkett, Jr, 1967. Humans have moved out to the stars. Mars and Venus are settled but Earth still rules. Then the aliens came and put everyone on those three planets to sleep. All except 10 who are immune. One man, with artificial legs manages to kill some of them, is caught and put in jail – minus his legs. And then the fun begins! He tells his alien jailer that he is talking, out loud, to his deceased grandfather. His tale is that the dead will take revenge on the aliens for their invasion. There are specters on the march against the aliens up to and including the headless horseman. Domestic robot salesbots get in the act as well. This is a fun Sci Fi that can make you chuckle at times.

#2 – Damnation Alley, Roger Zelazny, 1969. The humans that have turned the future Earth into deadly wasteland. Hell Tanner, an anti-hero ever there was one, dives a special war type wagon from the Country of California to the Country of Boston to deliver a cure for plague. Violence in almost every form from the land, the sky, the animals, and then there are the humans. There had been a movie made from this and there are 22 stills from it in the center of the book.

Atticus Thraxx November 18, 2023 - 7:21 PM - 7:21 PM

I read Damnation Alley years ago. Sparse and visceral, though the copy I read didn’t have any stills. It was okay. Not groundbreaking or anything. But I finished it.

Ancient Mariner November 18, 2023 - 9:21 PM - 9:21 PM

Greatly enjoyed Sleeping Planet when it was first published and still think of it sometimes. It introduced me to the word “quarrel” as in an armour-piercing crossbow bolt. Great summary – thanks, Dorothy!

Hanne Jeppesen November 17, 2023 - 10:02 PM - 10:02 PM

Luxembourg is beautiful. I spend a couple of nights there, when I hitchiked through Northern Europe with my girlfriends, one night at the police station. If anyone is curious I will gladly tell the story.

Atticus Thraxx November 18, 2023 - 7:24 PM - 7:24 PM

Do tell tell Fraulein! In case you were worried I was able to backtrack and avoid capture. Your story is probably better. 😁

Hanne Jeppesen November 19, 2023 - 11:38 AM - 11:38 AM

My 2 girlfriends and I arrive in Luxemburg City fairly late at night. We took a taxi to the Youth Hostel, because you have to check in before 10 p.m. As soon as we got out of the taxi a guy comes out screaming at us, it is after 10 o’clock, you can’t stay here. We spoke to him in English informing him that he is suppose to turn away women. He asked “if we were some goddamn American’s,” we answered “No, were are goddamn Danes”. He could not be reasoned with. We walked across to the street to a park and sat at some benches contemplating spending the night there. A young man came by and asked if we were lost. We explained the situation to him, asked if he knew of a cheap place to spend the night. He took us to the police station, we were shown inside to an office, we explained the situation to the police man. He asked us to wait, then came back and asked us to follow him. He showed us into a big nice office, obviously the office of the police captain. He said unfortunately he could not force the Youth Hostel to give us room for the night. However, he said in the police station they had an empty room upstairs, with a bathroom, and if we didn’t mind sleeping on the floor we could spend the night there. We had to leave by 6:30 a.m. because a class was supposed to be taught there at 7 a.m. So we slept on the floor and at 6 a.m. a nice police officer knocked on the door, “Young ladies, it is time to get up”. We told everyone how grateful we were and walked out of the police station a little before 7 a.m. with our backpack. There were a line of people waiting outside, as we walked by you could almost read their minds “What in the world did these 2 nice young girls do that the were in police custody.

The 3 of us had hitchhiked from Edingborough down to Dover, then Northern France, including Paris, Belgium. Luxemburg, Holland, Northern Germany (where one of our group were from) then back to Denmark) it took us about 6 weeks and we had many unusual experiences, mostly positive and heartwarming, but spending the night at the police station was probably the most unusual.

Ancient Mariner November 19, 2023 - 3:38 PM - 3:38 PM

Great story, Hanne!
You’ve had an exciting life.

Hanne Jeppesen November 19, 2023 - 10:19 PM - 10:19 PM

Thank You. I have been blessed with wonderful experiences and wonderful lifelong friends.
P.S. My comment should read “not suppose to turn women away:, and of course we were 3 walking out of the police station, we didn’t leave one of us behind.

Atticus Thraxx November 19, 2023 - 7:41 PM - 7:41 PM

Your story was better Hanne. If there is a heaven, I hope they reserve good seats for those who help and keep safe young travelers, especially young women. 🇺🇸 🇱🇺

S November 18, 2023 - 5:26 AM - 5:26 AM

Pick One:
A) Chile Relleno
B) Tamale

nytemuvr November 18, 2023 - 8:50 AM - 8:50 AM

@S….A) Chile Relleno….Just made a Chile Relleno casserole last week, working on modifying to my tastes, first attempt was pretty tasty and just ate the last of it a couple of hours ago. My Mom used to make the real deal when I was a kid, I’m looking for an easy peasy recipe with the casserole. Pork tamales are my second choice for Mexican food….too lazy to make those too. My Dad used to get really good ones in the 60s from a place under the MacArthur Maze but it was destroyed during the Loma Prieta earthquake.

Captain Bebops November 18, 2023 - 9:39 AM - 9:39 AM

B) Those I have had A) occasionally.

ClayDen November 18, 2023 - 9:43 AM - 9:43 AM

Chile Relleno!

Dorothy November 18, 2023 - 10:04 AM - 10:04 AM

Tamale every time.

Dr. Jellyfinger November 18, 2023 - 10:41 AM - 10:41 AM

A & B

Dawg November 18, 2023 - 12:36 PM - 12:36 PM

Definitely not a yuck, but it all depends on who makes them. There are a couple of Mexican grocery stores on Monument that make their own tamales, and they’re pretty darn good. The best chile relleno I ever had was at a little hole in the wall in Mexico.

Cyn November 18, 2023 - 9:59 PM - 9:59 PM

Hole-in-the-wall places are the best.

Roz November 18, 2023 - 2:37 PM - 2:37 PM

A & B. But like others here have mentioned, it’s all on who or how it’s made.
I’ve have not made either A or B but will try one day.
Next thing I’m going to try to make soon for the first time will be panettone.
Best store bought one I’ve had was from WIlliams-Sonoma.
Four years ago it cost $42, …. I can’t bring myself to buy one, since Hubby will eat 1/2 in one sitting!

domo November 18, 2023 - 3:39 PM - 3:39 PM

…both thank you… some chips, guacamole and pico too please

Atticus Thraxx November 18, 2023 - 7:26 PM - 7:26 PM

C. Gonna pass, but politely. No thank you.

S November 19, 2023 - 7:44 AM - 7:44 AM

NYTE… for “easy peasy recipe”:
pre-heat oven to 425
13″x9″ cake pan (glass is best) lightly greased and floured.
Large can diced (or 2 cans if you want) Ortega chilies rinsed and drained.
2lbs grated plain jack cheese.
mix together well and press into pan

6 large eggs
1/2 cup cream or half&half
1/4 cup water
1 cup sour cream
1/4 onion chopped; optional, but I like
2 garlic gloved minced; also optional, but I like
1/4 teaspoon cumin
tablespoon corn starch
blend all until frothy then slowly pour over cheese/chili mixture and let stand a few minutes
in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes (if top isn’t browned to your liking, switch on the top broiler for a few….
let cool and set up at least 20 minutes….
this will feed many or give you leftovers….
luv the panettone. and you do get what you pay for; low priced ones aren’t so good.
Baking isn’t a good skill set for me. let me know how your venture goes.

nytemuvr November 19, 2023 - 1:49 PM - 1:49 PM

@S….It’s not the ingredients I’m searching for, I didn’t use sour cream, but looking for the best way to cook them for the right texture. I saw that recipe online (there’s a jillion) but was a little afraid of cooking at such a high temperature. The next time I make this I’ll probably go with the higher temperature. I saw one recipe that used Bisquick and evaporated milk mixed in with the eggs, that may be the ticket. Thanks though.

S November 19, 2023 - 4:36 PM - 4:36 PM

was making my mouth water just typing all that…. and just before going grocery shopping this morning.
So, you know it’s in the oven now!

S November 19, 2023 - 4:42 PM - 4:42 PM

ps: the corn starch keeps the egg mixture stable at the high heat. Probably what the bisquick does. Either way…. I’ll be eatin’ good at about 5:30….

Roz November 20, 2023 - 4:54 AM - 4:54 AM

@ S ~
OH! I’m going to try your recipe!
I will let you know about the panettone.

ClayDen November 18, 2023 - 7:02 AM - 7:02 AM

I got up early to watch the SpaceX Starship launch on a beautiful morning on the gulf coast. It all went almost as planned and the key objectives were met. There was a RUD though, a term I love. RUD = Rapid Unexpected Disassembly (the booster blew up after staging). Now, back to editing my photos of Lake Iseo.

Dr. Jellyfinger November 18, 2023 - 10:49 AM - 10:49 AM

Awesome video! Explosion @ 3:35

@S….I haven’t been able to cook my meals from scratch the last year or so. I’ve eaten like that my whole adult life with the occasional In and Out, KFC or sushi but it’s just getting too hard to cook like that and keep up the housework and stuff. I’ve been searching for easy fast recipes and healthy “store bought” food. Since I only cook for myself I half all the recipes I find. Amy’s Foods have a frozen Chile Relleno bowl but they’re like $7, way crazy price for what it is and was trying to duplicate that. It’ll take a couple of batches to get this to suit my tastes. What I really miss is having a garden for the last few years, nothing like home grown tomatoes and veggies….such is life.

Bella November 18, 2023 - 9:52 AM - 9:52 AM

Mine went much lower last two months. I need to double check on the medical discount.

Amie Roderick November 19, 2023 - 4:17 PM - 4:17 PM

Im trying to watch the 49er game and one person in the room is watching videos on her phone. I asked politely for her to use her pods or mute her phone. She complies for a few minutes and then right back at it. Am I the only person that is annoyed by this? BTW she is a 40 year woman…

S November 19, 2023 - 5:26 PM - 5:26 PM

Well…. We know who’s in charge there; don’t we….

Atticus Thraxx November 22, 2023 - 8:08 PM - 8:08 PM

If I was on your jury, you’d walk for manslaughter on that one if I had anything to say about it Amie.

2 Cents November 19, 2023 - 4:44 PM - 4:44 PM

On Friday morning a women ran over a man with her car coming out of the Clayton Valley Shopping Center. Ton of police, fire trucks, and 2 ambulance. Haven’t seen anything on next door, or Claycord. Anyone have any info on how the man is? Thanks

The Old Goat November 19, 2023 - 9:17 PM - 9:17 PM

@2 cents
Her car was coming out of the shopping center? Oh, I get it now; it was one of those new, self driving cars.

Dr. Jellyfinger November 20, 2023 - 7:44 AM - 7:44 AM

I’ve seen nothing official, but I’d wager he’s feeling tire-d & maybe a bit run down.

Atticus Thraxx November 22, 2023 - 8:09 PM - 8:09 PM

A) Charcoal
B) Wood
C) Blend
D) Huh?

Good chance of freezing temperatures this weekend.

Atticus Thraxx November 23, 2023 - 8:13 PM - 8:13 PM

I just saw Cher on the television. I can’t imagine the millions it cost or the pain see endured, but damn she looks good. She’s gotta be like 80 by now.
I just checked, she’s 77. Both my grandmas look like an old shoe by 58. 🤷
