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?

Question of the Day – BART, Bus or Carpool?

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?
