A Day of Mourning
« on: May 04, 2004, 10:14:52 PM »
On this date, many, many years ago, a ship was lost in the waters of The Gulf of Mexico. It was laden with thousands of tons of mayonnaise, bound for a port in Mexico. That mayonnaise was to be the annual supply for much of that country.  As a result of that loss, millions of poor Mexican people had to endure dry sandwiches for a full year. :'(  In memory of that tragic day, the Mexican people set aside this day, each year, to remember the hardships their ancestors endured. They call it "Sink-o de Mayo."   ;D

I like the way they mourn, mariachi bands, colorful dresses, wirling dervish dancin', lots of cerveza.  8) 8) 8)
I may have been born on a turnip truck, but I didn't just fall off.

Yup and one year latter, on the Fifth of May, after a year of dry sandwiches, they over threw the government on the way to the docks with ham, cheese and bread in hand!  ;) ;);D ;D ;D

The next day morning
« Reply #6 on: May 07, 2004, 09:58:53 PM »
So, I was out in Los Angeles for "SDM", so the powers that be at one of the companies we rep decided that going out for a bit of Mexican food was a good idea.  So, 40 guys converge on El Torito and they pile some stuff up so we can have a bit of a buffet.

The next morning, my stomach rebelled, and I was celebrating "Stinko De Mayo", although somewhat loosely. ;D
But I'm back in town now, and feeling better.
So many trees, so little money, even less time.
