    Happy Cinco De Mayo

    Just wanted to get a jump on wishing everyone a Happy Cinco de Mayo, for those of you doing anything special.

    The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The Fifth Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexicans over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. It is primarily a regional holiday celebrated in the Mexican state capital city of Puebla and throughout the state of Puebla, but is also celebrated in other parts of the country and in U.S. cities with a significant Mexican population. It is not, as many people think, Mexico's Independence Day, which is actually September 16.

    It's weird how "Cinco de Mayo" gets a lot more attention than Mexico's Independence Day (Sept. 16).

    Anway, happy cinco de mayo to all those who celebrate it. Take it easy on the fajitas!

    9/16 is my birthday! I think it deserves a lot of attention and heavy drinking regardless.
