More and more Landlords in Concord are using the old excuse that there is not a #Just Cause law to give out 60 day notices to move..Not just one at a time, but whole buildings–Multiple Families all at once– They don’t even state on paperwork that its because they want to raise the rent–Sad

I posed this question to 125 kindergartners, and not a single one of them got it: A man rides into town on Friday, stays for five nights, and then leaves on Friday. How?

Kentucky Derby October 5, 2018 at 9:07 PM

His horse is named Friday. “Rides into town” is the operative wording.

WC Resident October 6, 2018 at 12:24 AM

Jokes about horses seem to be in bad taste given the one that was killed on Kirker Pass Road on Friday morning.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 6, 2018 at 9:05 AM

Geez WC Resident… I think you’re overreacting ….
but this is America so let’s put it to a vote!

All who agree with WC vote “Yea”
Opposed… vote “Neigh”

Cowellian October 6, 2018 at 9:14 AM

I disagree, WC Resident. Horse jokes would definitely be in bad taste on the thread about the collision, but this is the Whatever thread.

Kentucky Derby October 6, 2018 at 10:03 AM

WC Resident – Lighten up. The question was harmless. I hope you’re okay with my screen name, because that’s horse related too. Please let me know if you’d like me to change. I did blog here years ago under my first name. Off to the Pleasant Hill Art and Wine Festival.

A man was admitted to the emergency room with 6 plastic horses in his rectum. Doctors described his condition as stable.
Now that’s offensive.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 8, 2018 at 8:18 PM

Stable Condition?
Not hardly Pablito ….
Rectum? Hell no …. it killed him!

WC Resident October 12, 2018 at 2:04 PM

While I’m still sad about the horse I also appreciate the humor.

@Jellyfinger, I think you missed the use of the word “stable” as in horse stable.

Atticus Thraxx October 5, 2018 at 8:05 PM

I’d like to be able to say I would never do that. But…:

Dogs can’t smile…my arse:

As God is my witness, reminds me of my mother-in-law:

Nice move!:

Look at his big giant head! Adorable:

Just and I mean just pulled it out:

The relative size of the universe. Well one of the universes anyway:

Alot of work to save $70. Cool though.:

From the “Oh S**t” file:

Like a boss:

Now that madam, is trust:

So the bartender says “Why the long face?”:

“Welcome to the Nap Shop. Can I get you a chair?”:

Blue footed boobies:

Neighbors not getting along. they’re almost human:

Doggo hack:

How to ‘cop’ :

This is an old one, but worth another look:

Made me laugh. Keep watching:

I guess some white men can jump:

Another dumba$$ gets his comeuppance:

I bet he peed just a little:

For the stoners:

Name them all:

Kinda seems like cheating:


My mind is blown:

Again, with the mid:

No way that was a full power round.:

Finish with a heartwarming rescue:

Lots of good Ones!!
Totally enjoyed the Show.

Atticus Thraxx October 6, 2018 at 8:19 AM

Thanks Roz! 🙂

Dr. Jellyfinger October 6, 2018 at 9:07 AM

I agree….. except for the dog that eats too fast. I’ll bet that pooch winds up at the Emergency Vet with rocks in his belly.

HappyPappy October 6, 2018 at 9:59 AM

Pretty good, THRAXX, ……pretty good.

Atticus Thraxx October 6, 2018 at 10:45 AM

Glad you enjoyed Pappy. 🙂

Shasta Daisy October 5, 2018 at 8:47 PM

Meteor shower this weekend🌟


Dr. Jellyfinger October 5, 2018 at 9:38 PM

Cool! Details please!
Which way do I look?

Atticus Thraxx October 6, 2018 at 8:18 AM

Up Jelly

S October 6, 2018 at 8:41 AM


HappyPappy October 6, 2018 at 10:55 AM

“Up Jelly”
I’m not going to admit I laughed at that.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 6, 2018 at 12:16 PM

Neither am I.

Shasta Daisy October 6, 2018 at 8:19 PM

“Most meteor showers are best viewed in the early morning hours. But to maximize your Draconid experience, start observing in the evening this weekend, as soon as it gets dark. That’s because the constellation Draco — the shower’s “radiant,” or point from which the meteors appear to radiate — is highest in the sky shortly after nightfall.”

Just look up, you’ll never be disappointed. The nite sky is magical.
Be one.
We are one.

Can anyone give more information about the mattress sale at the high school in Walnut Creek this weekend. Has anyone ever purchased a mattress from this fundraising event. And are the mattresses quality , and will they take away your old mattress . Thank you

S October 6, 2018 at 8:57 AM

These sales; like piano sales at schools and colleges, are usually a bit of a scam. A clearance business donates a minimal % to a school group to evade facility rental costs. Shop around and you will find a better mattress for a better deal.

If in doubt; look at the article here on Claycord:

Where’s the fire?

Atticus Thraxx October 7, 2018 at 11:54 AM

Dana Estate filling with smoke and Ash. Something close on 🔥.

scott bobrow October 7, 2018 at 12:00 PM

anyone sell smoke in Concord?

Dr. Jellyfinger October 7, 2018 at 11:28 PM

Well yeah Scotty, sure…but it ain’t all strictly legal yet so we still gotta keep it on the down-low man…. be cool!

Justifiable Languor October 8, 2018 at 8:09 AM

Was that a typo?

Dr. Jellyfinger October 9, 2018 at 6:52 AM

JL… no, “down-low” is modern hipster, cool dude slang for keeping things quiet, … and I believe I spelled it correctly.

Justifiable Languor October 9, 2018 at 9:08 AM

Well. I always enjoy a lesson in modern cool. But just for the record, I hear there is a “store” in Rio Vista. Behind the Police Station. Yelp it. The typo I was referring to was, sell or was it smell? We need to corner this Scotty fellow and demand an answer!

Justifiable Languor October 9, 2018 at 10:16 AM

I forgot the smiley.

“Rick Searfoss, a former NASA astronaut who launched on three space shuttle missions before serving as a test pilot for a commercial rocket plane, has died. He was 62.

Searfoss died on Sunday, Sept. 29, at his home in Bear Valley Springs, California, according to the Tehachapi News on Friday (Oct. 5). The cause of death was not reported.”

Rest in peace and space forever.

So my husband received a blackmail email today demanding money. They had part of our network router password. Is there someone I should contact? Thanks.

Fact Checker October 9, 2018 at 10:49 PM

The FBI has an internet crime complaint center at, where you can give them the info.

I’d suggest making sure your virus checker is up-to-date, then running a scan of your computer. Of course, he’ll also want to change the router password.

WC Resident October 12, 2018 at 2:32 PM

This is a common scam. If they knew the full password they would have told you. If they knew exactly what the password is for they would have told you. Instead, they will say something like “we know your ‘dollar’ password. They are trying to get you to panic thinking they know the password where you use a $ sign somewhere.

Some people are in the habit of using the same first few letters for their passwords. For example, they may always use “kittycat” followed by a little bit of random stuff such as kittycat!love. As many organizations have been hacked with lists of username/passwords then being distributed hackers are starting to be able to spot patterns such as those people that always use kittycat.

If you are still concerned, then change the router’s password. If you are paranoid, then boot up an old computer that you have not used in years, use that to change the router’s password, and don’t access the router using your standard computers.

Use a random password generator for the passwords you care about.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 10, 2018 at 8:28 AM

So…….. Hillary Clinton rejected calls for a return to civility in American politics and said that “civility can only return once Democrats take back control of Congress”.

So the violent protests, the paid hecklers disrupting Congress, chasing down Republicans (and their families) to berate them in public, she is cool with all that and encouraging more of it?

She is anti-civility.. ….. but WE are the deplorables?

Dr. Jellyfinger October 10, 2018 at 9:49 PM

Oh what the fudge! I meant to post that comment in the Politics Column! Really sorry ….. I must’ve taken a left at the Poo story instead of at the Water Cooler…my fox paws!

I’ll be more careful in the future.

Shasta Daisy October 11, 2018 at 12:29 PM

Safe emergency landing, thank goodness.

The harassment laws in this state are so messed up, if someone even thinks they are being harassed then they How the hell are we supposed to talk with one another anymore?

Jojo Potato October 12, 2018 at 11:11 AM

Did you notice the picture on the cover of the Coco county voter guide? That’s the guitar playing librarian who does story time etc. at the PH library. A real treat, starting up in about 5 minutes in fact. “Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow…”

Jojo Potato October 12, 2018 at 2:59 PM

That guitar player is actually the manager. See:
