BB, thanks for the Kwanzaa info this week. I never paid much attention to it.


Albuquerque absolutely does have a Tia Carolina, Tia CathyRay, who dispenses wisdom & advice at the drop of a hat. I don't have a column so am forced to walk around buttin into other's business.

I too enjoyed learning a bit about Kwanzaa and totally forgot Powdrells had a 4th Street location, thanks for the info and reminder.

We just had dinner at Mr. Powdrell's Barbecue House on 4th a couple of weekends ago. I personally love this place. The building, called the Samuel Shalit House, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
