Release from the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group:
Release from the Humboldt Bay Harbor Working Group:
In Salon, David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer prize-winning reporter, reveals what Trump is so afraid of. He’s in hock to the Russians! As if you didn’t know that. Remember what Putin looked like at the news conference ending their meeting. HE was bouncy and chipper, while Trump looked like he’d been hit by a truck.

The Searchlight-Record has the story. What happened to the food truck “pod” we were supposed to get by Mr Fish? Btw, Southside Mike is in front of Costco most days now.

Here’s the latest from that indefatigable Harbor group .
I thought he was supposed to be OUR President??. Read about it HERE
“CRACKS IN HIGHWAY”– I hope to God I never drive down a road and see a highway marker warning of upcoming cracks in the highway such as they’re experiencing on the Big Island. Of course, my heart goes out to those who live their because it’s their ancestral home but those subdivisions look to me like recent construction, funded by those who wanted cheap housing and decided to take their chances. WHO would want to live on a volcano? Not me. The feng shui must be horrible.
COLD CUTS? There’s a mortuary on Winding Way in FairOaks which is being converted to a restaurant. I wish them the best. I wonder what they’ll call it? The Cold Room? The Chiller? I’ll be following this one.
SEAMUS T BONES: I’m surprised to find myself posting a second good review of ST Bones, the kind of place I usually don’t like. We dropped in in mid-afternoon when the place was almost empty and the server at first gave us only the bar menu, which is extensive, but then we were told we could order anything. I stuck with the bar menu and had a beef slider which was excellent and a taco which was okay, plus an order of fried green beans which came with a nice chipotle mayo. ($5 for each) My friend got ziti with slices of prime rib ($16 I think. These guys never have their full menu online) and it was a rich gooey mess with lots of cheese. Definitely satisfying. I had crossed them off our list due to an unfortunate incident with a hair in some soup but everything was fine on our return visit. We’ll be back. BTW they’re pushing a new “dry-aged ” steaks treatment.
PASTA LUEGO- Have you checked out this place on the ground floor of Jacoby’s Storehouse? The sell FRESH pasta and the best sandwiches you ever had. Highly recommended. Try the bucatini! It’s a tubular pasta which some folks liken to eating a bunch of rubber hoses but I think it’s wonderful . http://www.cocopastaluego.com/
GIULIANI- WHY does the same expression occur to me every time I see him, as in “There’s no fool like an old fool”. He was NEVER “America’s mayor”. He was a godawful asshole as NYC’s mayor, racist and divisive just like now. He and Trump are busily destroying what is left of the Trump administration, the most corrupt and inept in history, which is good. The two dotards in action.
TRUMP/GATES: I hope you all got to see the clip they were running on CNNN this weekend of Bill Gates recounting his meetings with Our Fake President. Trump asked him TWICE what the difference was between HIV and HPV when left the meeting by car so that he could make a helicopter entrance. The man is sick.
GRUB HUB: I saw so many of those commercials I started wondering what I could order. Unfortunately the only restaurant that comes up currently on their website is Tandoori Bites which already has a delivery service. I’m not real big on Indian food but I do like shrimp curry and I just might try them. $35 minimum for delivery. http://www.tandooribitesindiancuisine.com/
THANK GOD HE’S GONE- Kevin McKenny is finally bailing from the Planning Commission to which he should have never been appointed. His appointment was almost as bad as that jackass who was running the PD’s department until recently. HOW can experienced Supes, with all the resources of the County behind them, make such poor appointments? Another indicator for my “two terms and out” approach.
GUNS- The logical first step toward better gun control is to make parents liable for the mayhem their unsupervised kids cause. Starting yesterday.
BATTLEBOTS is BACK, on Ch 31 (Discovery Channel on Suddenlink) and ot a minute too soon. AND the guilty pleasure show of all time, 90 Day Fiancee, is back on TLC. I’ll watch but they will never have a trainwreck couple as good as Mohammed and Danielle. Stay tuned.
The Harbor Group is holding its monthly luncheon NEXT Wednesday! Call to reserve your place. Meatloaf!!

From the Sacramento Business News, their account of whats coming up at everyone’s favorite bank. Read about it HERE.
The high rents in the Bay Area continue to be a destabilizing factor in the Bay Area. Read about it HERE.
Our Fake President can’t bring himself to condemn the racists in Charlottesville but can’t stop running his mouth re: North Korea. He needs to SHUT UP. Meanwhile, for the grown ups……
HIGH-SPEED RAIL- ain’t it comforting to know that they now have HSR in Inner Mongolia while California is still arguing over the Central Valley routes? They’ll have it in Fiji before Trump delivers on his great “infrastructure” initiative.
RESTAURANT ROULETTE- Everyone’s abuzz this morning over the news that the China Buffet is closed for a few days due to sanitary deficiencies. Haven’t been there in a while although in the past I counted on them for dependable takeout, and even used them to cater parties. I hope they’re back online soon. The also-closed Gonsea, on the other hand, was a mediocre place I didn’t miss. The good news is that the Gonsea has been purchased by the owner of A& J Ichiban and will reopen under the name “OISHII”, which is Japanese for “delicious”. Sounds good.
MORE RESTAURANT STUFF- I posted this on Yelp yesterday re: ESMERALDA’S
“We went yesterday (a Friday) to check out the $1 tacos. I’d only eaten there once before. Service was prompt and cheery. The deal is you have to order TEN tacos to get the $1 price but you can take them home if you don’t finish them. I wasn’t crazy about the idea of taking home leftover tacos with all the mess that that would entail so I was pleasantly surprised to see that the tacos were tiny! Even smaller than the normal “street taco”. There were several choices. We both had chicken and carnitas . The carnitas was great- good char! And the chicken was good but not the standout that the carnitas tacos were. I had NO PROBLEM finishing off five tacos . Our bill was $13 because I ordered a Mexican Coke. The Taco special runs from 130 to 4pm and again in the evening, I THINK from 8 to 9 but you’d better call. We will definitely be back!”
