What’s on second, I Don’t Know’s on third.

What is on first Who is on second.

You Are!!

Chin Lung Hu played for the LA Dodgers. In 2007, he hit a single, and for the first time in baseball history, Hu was on first
There’s a clip of Hu’s on first on YouTube.

Who is on first
What is on Second
I don’t know is on Third
Tomorrow is Pitching
Today is Catching
Why is Left Field
Because is Center Field
I don’t give a Damn is Shortstop

Never did find out the name of the person in Right Field….maybe Nobody?

What’s the difference between a hippo and a Zippo? One is really heavy, and the other is a little lighter.

Ancient Mariner July 30, 2021 at 11:13 PM

Okay – I like that one!

Jeff (the other one) July 31, 2021 at 7:22 AM

smiling, lighthearted, yet audible groan from that one…

chuckie the troll July 31, 2021 at 8:07 AM


Thanks for the silly jokes. I tell them to the wife and she literally does not know how to respond. Me? I just laugh and enjoy them.

Antler July 30, 2021 at 7:43 PM

Dang, Frank! That was a beautiful steal you just pulled off !!!

Antler July 30, 2021 at 8:14 PM

Philly cheesesteak restaurant on Clayton Road has a Hiring sign out….. guaranteed minimum $17.50 per hour.

Bdpirate July 30, 2021 at 9:22 PM

Once you’ve worked fast food $17.50 ain’t enough to put up with that environment and public face to face interaction.

Silva July 31, 2021 at 9:11 AM

I know a couple of people who’d find that awesome!

Gittyup July 31, 2021 at 10:55 AM

Bdpirate, what is so bad about it? I notice the turnover at the drive thru is astounding. I go about the same time every time I go, usually weekdays, and it is always somebody different at the registers. They must have trouble keeping people

Are the public really rude? I know I sometimes have to ask for napkins, a straw, or a plastic fork and I feel bad for bothering them, but Cole Slaw is hard to eat with your fingers. I would imagine, as the name implies, “fast food” might be high pressure.

I worked at Fotomat for a while and the public were my favorite part of the job. It was some of the other employees, young kids mostly, that were inconsiderate and had attitude. Lots of them just didn’t show up for their shifts, didn’t call, and you’d have to work a double shift to cover for them which was longer than 8 hours and grueling, especially when you hadn’t prepared for it. Aside from that and the pay wasn’t that good, it was ok.

Kentucky Derby July 31, 2021 at 11:58 AM

A lot of people appreciate Antler’s advertisements! I worked those kinds of jobs when I was young and I enjoyed it.

Antler July 31, 2021 at 4:12 PM

This restaurant is not even a drive-through! The employee/customer exchanges in there are wonderful. Location is two doors down from Berkshire Books, and a couple of doors away on the other side is “Casper’s corner”.

Dorothy July 30, 2021 at 8:43 PM

You’s on first.

TroyDHezz July 30, 2021 at 10:03 PM

Why everyone getting so sick from this 5G?

nytemuvr July 31, 2021 at 12:57 AM

@TroyDHezz….Combined with the atomized metals that they are dropping on us via chemtrails is what’s making everyone sick. People don’t even realize it because the Black Ops helicopters come at night and wipe their memory. Just wear your foil hat all the time and it’s all too easy to comprehend….DON’T FALL ASLEEP!!!!!!!

Lovelace July 31, 2021 at 11:57 AM

There is no shortage on tin foil. I recommend you stock up….

Dawg July 31, 2021 at 1:27 AM

I saw something I’ve never seen before, a plainclothes cop on a marked Concord police motorcycle. He was wearing regular clothes and a gun. Why would a plainclothes officer ride around on a marked motorcycle, and what’s the purpose of a plainclothes officer when everybody can see his gun? I always thought plainclothes cops carried a concealed gun.

Jeff (the other one) July 31, 2021 at 7:21 AM

end of his shift, going home? Just finished a bust and headed to the station to begin the paperwork? A Newsom release who stole a police cycle?

chuckie the troll July 31, 2021 at 8:04 AM

We went to a local Mexican restaurant and a civilian walked in with a .45 on his hip. Open and concealed carry are legal here, but that was the first time I personally saw it.

That sighting of yours sounds strange. Are motorcycles cops allowed to take their bike home after work?

Ancient Mariner July 31, 2021 at 8:37 AM

The dry-cleaner wouldn’t take a check for his uniform, so he had to wear his street clothes!

anon July 31, 2021 at 9:44 AM

Maybe it was casual Friday.

nytemuvr July 31, 2021 at 3:36 PM

@Ancient Mariner….”No ticky, no washy”.

Randy July 31, 2021 at 7:30 AM

….. so we have a new Delta variant that supposed to be even more transmissable than the original Covid… so what do we do? Biden opens the borders and let hundreds of thousands unvaxxed immigrants in to help spread it….. why don’t we seen that raised up by the media? ask the prez about that?

Gabby August 3, 2021 at 1:35 PM

You have to have a negative COVID test to enter into the states but nice try lol. It’s the Americans who are coming to 3rd world countries and spreading this disease.

chuckie the troll July 31, 2021 at 8:01 AM

Your Troll Report:

Weather continues to be hot and humid. Smoke from the fires in California and elsewhere have reduced air-quality. We take our morning walk at 6 or 6:30 as do many neighbors. With my Kroger discount, I was able to get regular unleaded for $1.69 a gallon for the wife’s car!

Sunday is Swiss Independence Day (730 years), so I need to find our flags. We were able to find Rosti (online) and Brockwurst. I’ll need to sauté plenty of onions because our son is joining us.

Remodeling is coming along nicely. We got lucky and lined up a bunch of jobs early, and found great contractors. After the Master Bath is finished, new carpet and then we are done with the interior for this year. This place is beginning to feel like home.

Stay safe and try to avoid 242/4, Oakland and any other local hazards. Be kind to your neighbors and enjoy the weekend.

Roz August 1, 2021 at 6:40 AM

Hi Chuckie~
Wonderful about the Remodel.
The fires have been really bad again. My Hubby’s ex-boss (retired) is in Graeagle, CA. What a mess. Ash a 1/4 inch thick in the driveway and looks like thick fog outside. Plus, the Boss mentioned, even the sheets on the bed smell like smoke.
Stay safe & healthy.

Justifiable languor August 3, 2021 at 7:59 AM

I enjoyed the remodel stories too. Its nice to keep the local talent busy!

Mary Fouts July 31, 2021 at 2:11 PM

Coyote sighting in south PH this morning – Walking the dogs on the trail adjacent to the field and creek behind PHE, we we encountered a young-ish coyote about 25 feet from us. Was standing along the creek, staring at us. Very alert and healthy looking. From size I would guess he was born this spring, and is now doing some hunting on his own. Cute critter!

After about 20 seconds, he went down the creek embankment and headed southbound along the dry creek. Zero reaction from our dogs.

Earlier this year we could occasionally hear howling and yipping at night from 2 different coyote dens. Appeared to come from open space between Larkey Park and Acalanes high school. This happens almost every spring. Wonder if this coyote is from one of those litters?

Antler August 1, 2021 at 5:24 PM

Thank you for telling us about the lovely hike!
Over here, we had about a month of fox and litter communication at roughly 11p and then again at 5a. Then once in awhile, KAD let’s us borrow her pair of owls…… but I haven’t heard the Great Horned Owls (my favorites) in a very long time.

But breaking news: one neighbor has a couple of baby goats. Now there goes a unique collection of sound effects! 🥴

KAD August 1, 2021 at 8:07 PM

Thanks for the hike story. Love to hear about wildlife, Antler, I am jealous about the goats. I wish I had some for neighbors.

Must have been horrible for the driver to have to sit and wait for help. He’ll never unsee that !!

Re the Olympics:
There is a new “fastest man in the world”…. Italy’s Marcell Jacobs won the Olympic 100-meter dash, running it in 9.80 seconds!
(Are you men wondering how far 100 meters is? Go outside and run as fast as you possibly can for 9.80 seconds. Now multiply the distance you ran by at least 4 ….. and there you go…. 100 meters!
Oh! And Elaine Thompson-Herah of Jamaica still is the “fastest woman n the world”: 100 meters in 10.61 seconds!

Dr. Jellyfinger August 2, 2021 at 7:59 AM

Can Marcell catch a football?

One hundred meters is 109.361 yards (from the zero yard line to the back of the opposing end zone…. approximately).

Dr. Jellyfinger August 2, 2021 at 8:03 AM

Zero yard line?…. I meant “Goal Line”
Geez! ya skip one season of football and start talking like a sissy.

Mary Fouts August 1, 2021 at 9:23 PM

Possible gunfire in south PH – At about 9pm (our windows are open) we heard 5 sharp sounds that sounded like gunfire, possibly coming from Hoover or Oak Park Blvd area of PH. Heard sirens. called PHPD non emergency number to report. They already had units responding, asked us if we heard any yelling or screaming, they were thinking it was fireworks. Since then one more sharp blast. Sound was sharp like gunfire, not fireworks.

Oh Dear! August 2, 2021 at 10:31 AM

Heard about the state offering free meals to all students. Nice idea, but having worked in the school district for many many years (mostly Elem level) I can tell you that enough of that free food is thrown away that you could feed a third-world country for a year at least! I know the idea is good, but so so much of the food…esp fruits and veggies…is just tossed out. The kids want “fast-food” type of lunches, not healthy lunches!
So so sad!!

Silva August 4, 2021 at 4:23 PM

My boy went through grade school before healthy lunches, and he wouldn’t eat that “food” if I’d paid him.

Antler August 3, 2021 at 4:19 AM

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, you can legally enjoy using the words “squush” (as in trying to get all the plant nursery purchases into Brünhilda in one trip) and “squdgy” (something squat and pudgy) now!
(However, the two words give conniption fits to Autocorrect.)
Happy Tuesday, all!

Brock Turner is a rapist. Among my growing list of hobbies is making sure every time Brock Turner is typed into a search engine, the only thing he sees is his conviction for rape. So remember Brock Turner is a rapist and if you’re forced to share space with him, preemptive action might be in order to ensure Brock Turner doesn’t rape anyone. No one is safe when he’s around, no good reason his safety should be considered because Brock Turner is a rapist.

Dr. Jellyfinger August 6, 2021 at 5:51 PM

Geez! you’d think the victim’s friends would have beaten him to death already.

CLH August 3, 2021 at 7:22 PM

Anyone witness a hit and run today involving an electric bike and a vehicle? Rider was rear ended at stop sign on 6th near Coventry and injured. He was not able to get any info as the person who hit him took off while he was down.
Any info would really be appreciated.

CLH August 4, 2021 at 11:22 AM

In my post gave an incorrect description of the location.It was at the 4 way stop on 6th street coming off Willow Pass Rd. I was pretty shook up when I found out. The person hit my son from behind and then took off. His is going to be ok, but banged up really bad and deep road rash covering his whole right side. Pretty awful that they would take off and leave him lying in the road. Any one who may have information please come forward. I will happily respond with my information.

Original G August 4, 2021 at 11:08 PM

Haven’t posted this in awhile, has a chart on vehicle speeds, distance traveled per second, reaction time along with braking deceleration distance reaction time at a given speed and total stopping distance.

At 55 mph vehicle travels 80.7 feet per second, braking deceleration distance 144 feet, perception reaction distance 121 feet, for a total of 265 feet.
55 mph seeing danger, reacting and slowing to a stop 265 feet.

On the freeway doing 65 mph, looking over and picking up a water bottle takes say two seconds ? You just traveled 190.6 feet.

Back in high school slightly after earth had cooled, we were taught about following distance, reaction time and stopping distance in Drivers ED.

earl August 5, 2021 at 5:23 AM

anyone else hear the loud boom just now? around kirker pass and concord blvd.

The Fearless Spectator August 5, 2021 at 3:40 PM

It seems like the current California fires burning aren’t getting very much news coverage.

Alert: Online credit card info stolen / Peak android game app on Google Play

Received a fraud alert today from Chase Bank for charges made today to one of Jim’s credit cards. It was linked to Peak android apps on Google play, which has to be where card info was stolen.

Today a series of charges were correctly flagged fraudulent by Chase. To a furniture rental company, a jewelry store, and 2 Domino’s Pizza orders in Enid, Oklahoma. $15,621.33 in total! And all just today! Fraud department was very helpful in verifying fraudulent charges and cancelling account.

If you have a credit card linked to Peak apps/Google play, watch your charges carefully.

KAD August 6, 2021 at 11:19 AM

Better last while I get a chance. Grandson on his way.
