Okay? Here we go:

Q: In 1928 a crew of men working with a steam shovel in Lamorinda made a startling discovery - several of them, in fact. What did they find? Where were they exactly? And what happened to their discoveries?

I mentioned all the required elements-- albeit in separate guesses. ;-)

You did, Chris, and you put the mounds/grounds near the reservoir and these were at the future home of the college. We're playing hardball with the answers. Those Starbucks cards are like gold, you know! And apparently the remains disappeared after they were discovered, as no later record of their discovery or origin can be found.

Understood. I don't want a handout. I will play by the rules. I want to earn my coffee, fair and square. (Although, as I mail my checks to D.C. and Sacramento today, I think I will forego the Starbucks and go with home-brewed Folgers for a while).

You can afford Folgers? Not much left for us after Uncle Sam and Sacto took their cut!

We got skinned alive this year.
