With news that Ebola has been spreading around the world, including the US, and John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek installing Ebola warning signs, I’ve been wondering how things are going to pan out. Are you worried that Ebola will spread to the East Bay or will this peter out over time?
With Halloween right around the corner and as the Halloween costume shops start popping up, it will soon be time to decide what to go as for Halloween. My kid absolutely, positively wants to be a ninja this year. Not sure what color but ninja it will be! What are you (or your kids) planning on going as for Halloween this year? Do you plan on buying a costume or making one?
According to this Contra Costa Times article the The New Rheem theater in Moraga is not profitable to the owners so for a cool $4.75 million it can be yours for the taking. Moraga Councilman Dave Trotter noted that, “Over the past two decades, our community has mobilized and worked to save the Theatre and keep it open. It may now be necessary for the Moraga community to do that again, and I believe the Town government has a legitimate role to play in making that happen.”
I’ve been a member of various gyms, 24 Hour Fitness, Crossfit and others and now I’ve taken the simple route and just run on my own. The indoor cycling gym Cycle Scape Fitness is opening this month in downtown Walnut Creek which sounds intriguing. What is your favorite gym and why? What’s the most important part of a gym?
With all these newbanks that I’ve never heard of opening up in Walnut Creek I wonder whether I’m missing out on something. I’ve been at Wells Fargo for a long time due to the ubiquitous ATM machines which works for me. Are you happy with your bank? What bank do you recommend the most around here?
Yesterday we learned that Rainbow’s End Thrift Store was closing in downtown Walnut Creek and that got me thinking what other good thrift shops are out there? Sure I like browsing album covers but there’s plenty of other things to check out as well. So what is your favorite thrift shop?
With a Tesla showroom opening this week in Broadway Plaza I’ve been wondering how many people would buy a Tesla if money were no object. If you had $70K that you had to spend on a car would you buy the electric Tesla with a 250 mile range or would you stick with a more traditional car like BMW, Lexus etc? I’d be tempted to go with the Tesla myself.
With the new Lafayette farmer’s market opening this Sunday, I was thinking about the different farmer’s markets around town. I’ve been to the downtown Walnut Creek, Lafayette (last year), Orinda and Moraga farmer’s markets many times and like them all. One of my recent favorites is the German booth at the Orinda farmer’s market that sells various German sausages and meats including schnitzel. The pretzels are great, too. Judging by their accents, I figure it has to be quite authentic.
So where is your favorite farmer’s market? Is it based on location or what is offered?
