Question of the Day – Ear Buds or Headphones?

Although I have been using Apple AirPods from the beginning, my family has been requesting headphones so we checked out various Sony headphones (expiring points) at BestBuy in Pleasant Hill and thought they were quite amazing especially with the noise cancelling feature. It looks like the new AirPods Pro also offers noise cancelling but I don’t know if that justifies the $249 price tag. Do you prefer headphones or ear buds? Wireless or wired? What is your favorite brand/model?

Question of the Day – How are you Preparing for the SECOND PG&E Shutdown this Weekend?

Unbelievably, PG&E is planning to turn off power again, this time over the weekend in some areas of Contra Costa county. Did you get an email about a shutdown in your area? Are you planning on doing anything to prepare?

From PG&E:

Possible event 10/26/19

Weather conditions, including potential fire risk, have been forecast that may impact electric service to portions of our service area. If a decision is made to turn off power, we expect to start turning off power for safety as outlined below. If you live in these communities, PG&E will attempt to contact you via telephone, text and email.

Please check back for the latest information as the area and number of customers impacted are updated as weather conditions change.

Outages (weather event plus restoration time) could last longer than 48 hours. For planning purposes, PG&E suggests customers prepare for outages that could last several days.

Question of the Day – Do you Agree with PG&E Shutting Down Power Yesterday?

Yesterday PG&E shut down it’s power grid for much of the day in many parts of Contra Costa although not downtown Walnut Creek, which is where I headed to eat, charge and use my laptop. On the one hand this was done to lower the risk of a fire starting due to strong winds and dry conditions. In fact as I walked outside I did notice it was quite blustery. On the other hand weren’t there other precautions that could have been taken instead?

Question of the Day – Do you Wait for Sales before Buying?

Does this sale sign really warrant an exclamation point? Is there anyone shopping for pasta thinking, “99 cents is too pricey but once it hits 95 cents or lower I’m in!” Just wondering…

Maybe people subconsciously love sales so much that no matter how small the discount, or how marked up it was previously, they can’t resist?
