The new BART trains have been on the tracks for a while now, although I rarely seem to get one when I ride. The new features are explained in depth here. Although there is much less seating, I like the middle third door which makes it much easier when exiting. Do you like the new BART trains? Is there anything you don’t like about the new trains?
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?
It’s been a few years since I last asked this but what is your favorite fast food restaurant? I don’t go often but when I do go it’s usually In-N-Out Burger or Habit Burger since my kid loves burgers like bees to honey.
Are you a city person or is the countryside more to your liking? Or somewhere in between? If you could choose to live in the city or suburbs which one would you choose? Of course everything is relative and although Walnut Creek is developing rapidly it’s still the suburbs.
About once a year I go to a local massage studio to get a deep tissue massage which is always relaxing especially considering how many hours a day I sit at a desk. What is your favorite local massage place?
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?
In the past few weeks there have been an enormous amount of restaurantclosings in downtown Walnut Creek and beyond. Is this typical for summertime or is something out of the ordinary happening? Out with the old, in with the new?
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?
