Friday Question of the Day – Have you ever been Hacked?

This week I visited the RSA security expo at the Moscone Center in San Francisco where I saw so many companies promoting security products I was left amazed. That place is huge! Earlier this week I also made this blog more secure as well (see the Secure lock at top in the address bar).

That got me wondering how many people have personally been hacked. Has your email, Facebook etc ever been hacked? How did you recover? What steps did you take so it won’t happen again? I always enable an additional option (when offered) when I sign-in by getting a code via text message etc and so far haven’t had problems (knock on wood).

Friday Question of the Day – Are you Glad Amazon is Opening a Bookstore in Walnut Creek?

Last month we learned that Amazon Books is coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek. There was some disagreement as to whether this is a good thing or not since Amazon is the reason many bookstores have gone out of business. Are you glad Amazon is opening bookstore in Walnut Creek or do you resent that they have caused so much upheaval in the book industry?

Friday Question of the Day – What’s your Favorite Candy?

With everything going on in the news lately, as well as the candy store Zoonie’s opening this week in Lafayette, I think now is an appropriate time to discuss candy. As a young kid I dreamed about getting cotton candy at the fair or ball game. Anything with chocolate and peanut butter is great like Reese’s cups. Although now I’d prefer a Recchiuti peanut butter puck. What is your favorite candy?

The Trump presidential inauguration is happening right now in Washington D.C. Check out this Vox article to see the complete schedule. Earlier this week we learned that a Women’s March will be taking place on Jan 21st in Walnut Creek, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and other cities.

Are you planning on watching the inauguration festivities? Will you be marching on Saturday?

Friday Question of the Day – Are you a Winter or Summer Person?

Although the seasons here aren’t quite as pronounced as they are where I grew up on the East Coast, there are definite variations. I have always been a summer person. Possibly spring because that leads to summer. Although I’m glad the wet winter is helping out with the drought, I’m just not as happy-go-lucky walking around compared to a summer day wearing shorts and t-shirt.

What is your favorite season?
