I Had No Idea Presidential Hopeful Kamala Harris Was ‘Black’, But I Didn’t Know Obama Was ‘White’.

I had seen her on TV and just assumed she was ‘white’ with blush. Honestly. Never ever occurred to me that she was black! No, I had not taken much notice of her first name ‘Kamala’. Maybe if I had I might have given it some thought. I thought it was ‘Camala’ — and Spanish.

Here is the kicker. She has no ‘white’ in her. Indian Tamil mother and Jamaican father. Yes, one or more of her grandparents may have been ‘white’. Does not matter. It is just that I had not realized that she was anything other than lily white. Just goes to show you.

Tamil mother — from India. No, I am cool. I really STILL do have Tamil friends. Growing up one of my many surrogate mothers, our next door neighbor, was Tamil. My current doctor is Tamil. So, that is actually good.

Yes, I honestly did not know, until I became an ardent follower, that Obama was white. Always confused me when folks called him black. He was as much white as he was black.

Not so in the case of Kamala Harris. But, that is OK. I think she is smart and cool BUT I am not sure whether she is the next Obama. The next Obama for I, is Michelle.

Is This Mandala Worth $90 (U.S.)?

Other than the circles, everything else is hand drawn.

Yes, this is Teischan’s (12) latest. It is on one of the mounted canvases she got for Christmas. The detail on it is pretty spectacular. If you look very carefully at the middle circle you will see a ‘T’. That, for ‘Teischan’, is a trademark in all her mandalas. She knows I like it and today, at lunch, offered it to I for $90! I am torn. I really would like her to try and sell it online.

Well, at least I got her name right! I named her after the great Italian Renaissance master painter Titian.

This is from HER Website. Yes, she has had since she was 12-hours old! The domain was registered 4-months before she was born!

‘Amazfit Verge’ Now At Software Version

My Amazfit Verge updated to as soon as I set it up and paired it with an Android Tablet.

The update was done over Wi-Fi and was very quick. Couple of minutes. No hassle.

It was supposed to increase stability and added more sports. I didn’t get to read the whole ‘blurb’ which appeared on the screen.

Since I have only had this watch for three days this is the only software I have seen. So, I cannot comment on it.

So far it seems fine. I haven’t run into any problems. Everything seems fairly accurate.

I will, of course, keep you posted.
