We've all heard about the Tea Party movement that has become a very load voice for ultra conservative politics. Well Some knitters in South Berkeley formed a T-Party of their own. Gertrude Stein once said "There is no there in Oakland." Well, it seems they took that saying to heart. Now Berkeley boasts is very own (not a tea cosey) but a T cosey for the first letter of the THERE sign that greets folks traveling down MLK near Adeline as they leave Berkeley and enter Oakland. When you come the other way (leaving Oakland and entering Berkeley) you are greeted with a HERE sign. Well it seems that the knitters wanted to equal things out. City of Berkeley wants it down. Pictures are below.
Oh, I just learned about a neighborhood yard sale in North Oakland, on Lowell Street between 57th and Arlington, Saturday June 5th. This is a neighborhood effort and an example of how this neighbrohood is transforming with residents coming together in the spirit of cooperation and productivity. come out and support them!
