Well, 2019 4th Of July, or 4th Of July 2019 is in the books. And for this vlogger, it was spent in the company of my dear Mom here in Georgia.
While I still maintain my apartment in Oakland’s Adams Point (and primarily for business reasons), staying with my elderly Mom is my top priority these days. And the one bonus of this for me is my Mom’s cooking: she loves to cook, and it really good at it, as you can see:
Before Mom and my late stepfather left Oakland for suburban Atlanta, they were cooking up a storm in the East Oakland Hills. That combined with my current residency and this blog cause me to turn more than the casual eye toward what Oakland’s doing on days like the 4th Of July 2019. So, here’s the answer, or I should here are the answers, to that question, thanks to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube:
This YouTube video was made with a smartphone held the wrong way, that is vertically. Yes, it’s common, but it’s also not the best way to use the camera’s lens to let us see what’s happening. So, we get this narrow image of fireworks being lit in the street:
