Cinco de Mayo


Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday celebrating Mexico's victory over the French forces of Napoleon III.  I understand that in Mexico, the day is celebrated with parades in some places and political speeches in other places.  Here in the southwest, it's generally celebrated at Mexican Restaurants promoting food and drink.  It is a good day to partake of some delicious enchiladas.

Cinco de Mayo has evolved into something similar to St. Patrick's Day, with different food and drink, of course.

Go for cheese Enchiladas, my favorite. Impossible to find any good enchiladas over here, the same for tacos... :-)

That doth look mighty appetizing and I'm much rather eat such vittles than watch a parade or listen to political speeches!

Re your comment on Ocala: I remember when you switched to a Mac and how happy you were. We switched about a year ago and could never go back although I still use a PC occasionally for programs for which I cannot get a Mac version.
