Alamo security DVR site survey. Customer wants 4 cameras, similar to Mike Dennis (high-end/high quality). All are fairly short-range - nothing special needed.

This is the least I've paid for gas here in the Bay Area in several years at least. I took this pic today at the Arco on Willow Pass and Farm Bureau Road in Concord. #gasprices

Some pics from yesterday's DJ gig. My customer threw a "white party" for about 30 guests, and it ended up being a 7-hour gig! Long but fun, because I got to play lots of requests and go deep into my music collection.

Better than I expected. Definitely plenty of "fiction" in the SciFi though. Lots of CGI but nothing too objectionable.

Fry's is one of my favorite electronics/computer stores, due to their large selection and low prices. I've been shopping there since the 90s, when the closest store was in Fremont, so I was very happy when the Concord store opened. Now, let's make this clear: Frys is really a store for people who know what they want. The sales staff is inconsistent at best, and if you don't know what you need (and many of these items are very technical, requiring specific knowledge), then you should probably do some more research before you come shopping, because you shouldn't count on the staff's help. The return policies ARE good, though, and I've rarely had a problem with years and years of buying from them, because they're the same brands you can buy elsewhere. If you need something TODAY, though, you just can't beat Fry's.

Video Only is an endangered species: a brick-and-mortar TV/video store. They have a large selection of TVs on display for you to compare, and the sales staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Other reviewers have complained about not being able to return TVs, but with today's large flat-panels, it's an industry-wide standard that TVs over 32" can't be returned to the store, but rather are serviced in your home if they break under warranty. Given the nature of the repair parts and the size and weight of the TV, this policy makes sense, and the store shouldn't suffer for this policy as a result. Video Only sells all the top brands of TVs, so anything you buy here is going to be of good quality. Having said that, these are consumer electronics, and things occasionally fail or break. I believe they are authorized retailers for every brand they carry, but you should always confirm that before purchasing.

This is one of the nicest Inns in the Bay Area, great for a romantic getaway. Several rooms have amazing balcony views of the Bay, the rooms are good-sized and comfortable, spotlessly clean, and the bathrooms are very nice. Service is great; the staff is very nice and helpful, and you feel like you can relax here. Parking can be a little tight, but there are lots of shops within walking distance, and you're just a block or two from the Bay, with plenty of places nearby to eat.

This is where I go when I need office or shipping supplies or the odd small computer item. Staples isn't anything fancy, but they have what you need, and the stores are laid out pretty well so you can find what you need and be on your way quickly. Service has always been pretty good; check-out is fast, and the few returns I've had were handled quickly and easily.

I always like some good Italian-American food, and Olive Garden is one of those reliable chain restaurants that delivers what it promises: good food. The decor in this location is decent, but a few things are starting to look a little worn. Hopefully some upgrades are in the works. Service has always been very good for me, rarely having to wait very long for food, drinks or refills. But the best part of OG is the food. For a chain restaurant, it's quite good, and there are plenty of items on the menu that I like. Given that I'm a picky eater, that's good. It's a great place for a family meal, and decent enough to bring a date for a casual meal.

The Cheese Steak Shop is one of my favorite fast-food chains. Simply put, there's no better cheesesteak sandwich available in California. The restaurant is fast-food simple, but that's all it needs to be. Service is good but not remarkable. It's really all about the food, and that's what's important anyway. On a basic cheese steak, your steak is put on the grill and as it is cooking, the cook chops it up with a pair of spatulas until it's nearly the consistency of hamburger, adding onions along the way. Just before it's done, slices of cheese (American or Provolone) are placed on the meat to melt, and then the meat and cheese are put in a fresh, soft roll, along with some hot and sweet peppers. It's simply delicious. I also really love the big, nuclear-hot steak fries, something you don't see in many places. The Cheese Steak Shop always cooks them perfectly, too: crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. If you're a meat-eater and you're looking for a great meal, you can't beat The Cheese Steak Shop.

I've been stopping by this Taco Bell lately, and it's a bit above par for Taco Bell. The dining room was recently redecorated with very nice, modern styling, far more upscale than anything Taco Bell has done before. The food is standard TB, but the quality is pretty high and very consistent in my experience, which is a plus. Service could be quicker sometimes, but they may be understaffed at times, because the employees seem to be working hard and fast when I've seen them. If you like Taco Bell, this is a good location to visit.
