Alrightie! SF Giants fans at the game tonight held up the big letters to spell out “BAET LA” (they done us proud!). And we did baet ‘em too….. 2 – 1

Claycord readers should realize what a great place it is to freely post almost anything with few and fair restrictions by moderator. Look at what the other world blogs place as restrictions –

I subscribe to an international news service that noted the death of Malaysian attorney Karpal Singh. At the end of the article the reader was invited to post with these rules –

Comments will be moderated by The Hindu editorial team. 2. Comments that are abusive, personal, incendiary or irrelevant cannot be published. 3. Please write complete sentences. Do not type comments in all capital letters, or in all lower case letters, or using abbreviated text. (example: u cannot substitute for you, d is not ‘the’, n is not ‘and’). 4. We may remove hyperlinks within comments. 5. Please use a genuine email ID and provide your name, to avoid rejection.

Dear Mayor, On my iPhone v7 I am getting popped into an install for the “Dragon City” app when scrolling down the Claycord main page. It doesn’t happen on other sites. I’m not an expert on this but I think it may be one of your ads doing this. Makes the site unusable on the phone. I would greatly appreciate your looking into this. Thanks.

Just a bit of trivia:
There has been a couple of posts about “Animals crossing Bailey Rd.” Do you know there is a livestock tunnel beneath Kirker Pass Rd? It is just beyond Hess Rd. on the Concord side.

While there is sooo much going on, living or trying to live in Concord. I have a complaint, living between 2 houses with weeds several inches high, on lynwood drive, The weeds have taken over their side front yards. We work hard on our yard, and I am sick of having to complain to someone to have a homeowner to keep the yard weed free, or cut. Neighborhood preservation was at one time PROACTIVE, looked for the problems that were visible and sited people. Now you can not get them to take care of the Big neighborhood problems, houses with illegal activities(they do work with the PD) illegal gambling, homeless riding bikes through Dana Estates, trying to sell stuffed animals, street corner vendors. But I really am tired of the way my neighbors are NOT taking care of the yards. Elkwood does not look much better.

This just in: The famous Mexican author and Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who wrote “Love in the Time of Cholera” and “One Hundred Years of Solitude” among others, has died. He was 87 years old.

111 ChampagneKitty April 17, 2014 at 1:35 PM

Clarification: Gabriel Garcia Marquez was actually a native Colombian, but had been living in Mexico for some time.

Oh, and Chelsea Clinton has just announced that she is pregnant.

In Washington, D.C. an old priest lay dying in the hospital. For years he had faithfully served the people of the nation’s capital and was well known among the elected officials. He motioned for his nurse to come near. Yes, Father?” said the nurse.
“I would really like to see President Obama and Senator Reid before I die,” whispered the priest.
“I’ll see what I can do, Father” replied the nurse.
The nurse sent the request to The President and Congress and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived and President Obama and Harry Reid would be delighted to visit the priest.
As they went to the hospital, Obama commented to Reid, “I don’t know why the old priest wants to see us, but it will certainly help our images.” Reid agreed that it was a good thing.
When they arrived at the priest’s room, the priest took Obama ‘s hand in his right hand and Reid’s hand in his left hand. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old priest’s face.
Finally President Obama spoke. “Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?”
The old priest slowly replied, “I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
“Amen” said Obama and Reid together.
The old priest continued, “Jesus died between two lying thieves. I would like to do the same.”

What are you supposed to do if you are lying on your back in bed, and you hear a little fluttering sound…. so you turn on the nightstand light…. and find a small bat has landed on your nose? You can reach the i phone & get online & Google search “Bat on nose, HELP” (without success) so we don’t need that suggestion… anybody have any experience with such a thing? I mean like no sudden movements… maybe coax him off onto a pencil or something? I tried holding a dental mirror in front of him, but bats are blind… right? Ahh… I think his little radar waves must be bouncing back off the mirror ’cause now he looks really agitated! Will the Fire Dept bill me if I call them over? Maybe I can get up slow & walk real steady over to the window & stick my nose out…..

Happy Friday folks.
I never thought I’d have to say this, but let’s hope there are no shootings today.

A Texan was talking big in a bar one night about how much money he had, how many women he had been with and how much land he owned. A young man, growing tired of all the big talk finally asked the Texan, “Just how much land do you actually own”? The Texan tipped back his cowboy hat and said to the young man ” Well sonny let me put it to ya like this, I can get in my pickup at sunrise, drive all day long,skip lunch and still not get to the other side of my property by sundown”. The young man shot back quickly, ” Oh yeah, I know what you mean, I used to own a Ford truck too”!

What is there helicopter activity in Concord/Pleasant Hill right now? I’m trying to decide if I should be nervous or not.

119 @RoseQ April 18, 2014 at 5:06 PM

Are they news helicopters? They could be filming the car that went into the See’s store on Contra Costa Blvd.
