Happy Friday to all the wonderful citizens in the City of Claycord.

This is a post with no subject, you can talk about whatever you want. If breaking news happens (such as an earthquake), or you hear about something newsworthy, feel free to post it here.

Englund’s Cafe has a small sign… easy to miss!

103 Mustang Sally March 25, 2014 at 6:07 AM

Oo, Aticus Thraxx, I’d love to see that close up and in slow motion. Nice!

104 Antler March 25, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Atticus at #101. ….. This is sooooooo one of the fantasies I have when I am day dreaming and my imagination has me in control of ANY situation!


105 big fire somewhere? March 25, 2014 at 1:36 PM

Lots of firetrucks just left the downtown Concord station with sirens blaring. Wonder what’s up?

I searched the internet for charities accepting toddler clothing, 24mos-3T, almost new crib, and nice womens clothing. I wanted to donate, but not have the people in need pay for items, I ended up calling salvation army, as usual. IS there no formal groups that accept and give out needed items free? If not, we should set something up for families in need of clothing,cribs, furniture.

@Annon…….there is a women’s shelter in Bay Point that accepts clothing and furniture. I will get their phone # and post it for you. I have donated to them various times and have helped tutor the children in the past. Most of the ladies attend Calvary Temple up on the hill. Great organization.

110 Antler March 26, 2014 at 10:36 AM

#108 …… That was FUN!

111 Antler March 26, 2014 at 10:43 AM

Doc Ephqrt’s @102 ….. Good observation! I always slow way down and stay in the left land as I see the “Bates” signage up ahead. It’s a left turn into the executive park which just BEFORE you get to the Bqtes intersection. Englund’s has an awning with the name on it….1st building on left. They do a WHOMPING business during the lunch hour….best if you look at their menu online and call in an order for “take out”.

112 Kelley March 26, 2014 at 10:56 AM

I think I knew Verti Gough, didn’t she always looked at the world obtusely.

113 annon March 26, 2014 at 11:06 AM

@109 Thank You

114 Lulu1949 March 26, 2014 at 11:40 AM

@Annon……Here you go. You probably should call first before you go there.

If you can’t take the donations there yourself, contact me. I will.

115 People who should never go near guns March 26, 2014 at 1:27 PM

People who should never be around guns. This is funny and no one is seriously injured.

116 Silva March 26, 2014 at 4:08 PM

Photo op outside if you like dramatic clouds!

117 Connie Dobbs March 26, 2014 at 5:14 PM

I like dramatic clods; fortunately Claycord has a politics thread.

119 Killjoy March 26, 2014 at 7:02 PM

Sitting here, waiting for my child at an activity they enjoy.
I looked at the dash on my car, and the speedometer goes up to 150 MPH.
Now, I seriously doubt that this car could reach 150 MPH even with a good tail wind. That being said, I certainly wouldn’t try it on the crappy roads we have around here.
So much for my reputation as “The Stig”. Bwahahahaha

120 Death of the Doughboy March 26, 2014 at 10:04 PM

It is with the saddest heart that I must pass on the following news:

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and traumatic complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours. Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.

Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still, as a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough; three children John Dough Jane Dough and Dill Dough; plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

Thank you for your comments. They are greatly appreciated–Nick

123 Marissa March 27, 2014 at 12:15 PM

What funny jokes on the “whatever” column. I like the Vincent Gough funny the best.

124 Shelly March 27, 2014 at 1:42 PM

Yeah, all you jokers out there! You’re the BEST !!!

125 Antler March 27, 2014 at 9:32 PM

Need help, please, in identifying one type of hummingbird which is suspect is coming to your own Claycord feeders as well. It is bottle green all over and has a stubby tail. I cannot find a picture of it in my books, nor online … least not yet. (The “Magnificent Hummingbird” is mostly green, but it has many other muted colors in its feathers, so the type we’re seeing must be something different.)

Sweet dreams, all!

126 Killjoy March 27, 2014 at 10:20 PM

Antler, is it a Green Violetear?

127 Antler March 28, 2014 at 3:15 AM

Hi, Killjoy. Thank you for the link, but the type we are seeing has an even shorter tail and no apparent color (other than brilliant bottle green).
