What’s the word? Umoja! (Unity!) Do you know the rest?
This is the first day of Kwanzaa! Do you celebrate? If so, how so? In Los Angeles, the Leimert Park area, there is the big Kwanzaa Parade and Festival which culminates in the actual park area. It’s also the Leimert Park Artwalk, so there will be a lot of activity in the park what with 18 bands scheduled to play…
What technology did you get for Christmas? Any questions about any of it? I am no Leo Laporte but Isidra Gadget can find someone who knows in most cases.
