Where’s the Cisco ūmi “Get Together” Tour Van? Zinfandel Wine Festival, SF

This past Saturday, the Cisco ūmi “Get Together” Tour Van was in two locations: the NHL Fan Fan Fair in Raleigh, North Carolina and the Zinfandel Wine Festival in San Francisco.

I had the opportunity to go check out the Zinfandel Wine Festival for myself and who better to take than the person I love and always want to “get together” with? My mom.

My mom has seen ūmi before at my house, but she had never experienced the “Get Together” tour van before.

Back to School but Still in Touch with Cisco ūmi!

Oh, the weather outside is still frightful, especially with the recent nor’easter that’s sweeping through; nevertheless, college students across the country are preparing to head back to school after a long winter break. In the coming weeks, college campuses will reopen and Spring semester classes will begin. Your children may not miss you right away because let’s face it, spending weeks with your family during the college years is tough on any student. After a while though, they’ll yearn to see your face, and with an empty nest, you’ll yearn to see theirs, too.

How do you keep in touch with the kids when they’re 30 or 3,000 miles away? Phone? Close. Video calling on the Internet? Getting warmer. Video calling from your HDTV? Bingo! With Cisco ūmi you can check in on your future scholars by video calling them on your living room TV. If they’re out studying at the library or, dare we say, at a party, you can just leave them a video message and they can call you back later. (Note – this is a perfect way to embarrass them if they watch the message with friends in the room!)
