Question of the Day
Riding BART is convenient but frustrating at times with packed crowds and various incidents that happen now and then. One person I spoke with recently mentioned how riding the bus is way more convenient. And there’s carpooling. I see the signs at the BART station and wonder how well it works. For those that commute do you prefer BART, bus or carpool?

Recently I was at the Walnut Creek Yacht Club sipping a beer when I realized that everyone around me was drinking wine. I don’t know why I instinctively order beer instead of wine since I like both. What do you prefer, beer or wine?
With two months of summertime ahead of us I’m thinking about ideal vacation spots. If money were no object where would you go and what would you do? I’d like to visit Hawaii, Vietnam and Italy one of these days…
Summertime means blockbuster summer movies. I was looking forward to MiB International until I read the poor reviews. Only 26% on Rotten tomatoes! Are there any movies worth seeing this summer?
It’s that time of year again with summer approaching, wondering what is on people’s summer reading list. I plan on reading Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari and more Harry Potter.
With summer around the corner this reader requested question of the day about what summer jobs you had growing up is perfect!
I was a day camp counselor for 4 summers in a row with the City of WC. Super exhausting running after kids all day!
I worked at a five and ten store one summer and spent plenty of time during lazy summer afternoons listening to Mets games on the radio while playing stickball and curb ball dreaming about becoming a big leaguer.
It always makes me smile when I encounter classic cars strolling around town. I guess it reminds me when I was a kid growing up in the latter half of the 20th Century. Although I enjoy looking at them I drive boring cars namely a Prius and a Mazda minivan. They are utilitarian, get me from point A to point B and I’m satisified, although in the back of my mind I always wonder what it would be like to drive around in a McLaren.

When I started this blog over seven years ago it was partly so I could come up with a reason to use the camera on my new iPhone 4S and I’ve been using Apple phones ever since, along with iPads since it’s convenient to stay within the Apple ecosystem. However, I know people who are adamantly against the closed Apple system and prefer Android instead. Do you use iPhone or Android phones?
