    Good one, Michael. But if this is the way that the Mexicans celebrate their salad days, do the Dutch celebrate their Hollandaise?

      I'm not sure about that. I do know that the Swiss celebrate their Bernaise.

            Cinco De Mayo is a big day on our place. But I think that the folks that work with me do it for us Anglos.

            We worked hard today, lst cutting of alfalfa, praying for no wind and no rain. Moved cattle to the next field. Warm, and somewhat of a breeze.

            Cooking has been going on all day. We will be having cabeza de cabrito (goat head), carnitas ( chopped



            pork butt) cooked in several sauces including a lemon sauce, an orange sauce, a beer sauce and a diet coke sauce( don't ask me why, as I don't argue with these cooks), a pit cooked goat and a lamb, rice and beans cooked with olives and chicken and tomatoes and cilantro and other stuff. We will also have homemade tortillas - corn and flour, potato and macaroni salads. Lots of beer, some mescal (probably too much), some cheap spanish wine, and for dessert - sopas w/a cinnamon/sugar glaze and vanilla ice cream.

            No sour cream and no american cheese

            The fesivities will last until late tonight, and we probably won't get much work done tommorow.

            But who cares, a party is a party




            I want to know how that Diet Coke sauce turned out!

              I don't know about the Austrians, but my tackle box is full of Viennies.

                This must appeal to all of our Basque Holiday Roadfooder's! At the recent Talent Competition that is part of the selection process for the Miss Owensboro BBQ Festival for May 2004, This young lady really did the best Marlene Dietrich impersonation as she belted out that old Ballard "There Will Never Be Another Ewe" !! Let your regional holiday celebrations equal THIS !!

                Here she is --

                  San Marcos hosts the annual Cinco de Mayo menudo cook-off every year. Have not heard much about it this year.

                      Mr. Mayor, that picture is going to give me nightmares.

                      -----------

                      It reminds me though:

                      Do ya know where the University of Oklahoma football team buys lingerie for their farm animals? Frederick's of Norman.

                      Ok, it was a lot funnier the first time I heard it. )

                            Cinco de Mayo is big in Denver, mainly for cruising up and down Federal Blvd waving the Mexican flag and yelling.

                            Juneteenth is also celebrated here, but with more festivals.

                            I like to go to restaurants and give our name as Donner, because it IS such a joy to hear, Donner, party of....

                                You all have the best sense of humor. I just love this column. I get so many laughs! Since we are inventing holidays, in honor of our neighbors to the North, lets celebrat the Queens birthday, no not those Queens, the one who lives in London, England. Rex in hot, expensive, smoky, San Diego. Gas just hit $2.73 a gallon on El Cajon Blvd.

                                  Like seafarer j. my wife and I were at a wake ,only this was a fireman's wife who died very young, she was a wonderful person .It was really sixo de mayo(heh-heh) . Lots of drunken firemen. anyway we decided to hold on to a tradition that looks like it might end. Where is there good Mexican food in the U.S.?... Texas? Do you really go for any thing other than fresh salsa and Frozen Margaritas? Maybe Mexican just isn't good out. We make better burritos home.

                                                        Here in Milwaukee, we have wonderful ethnic festivals all summer long.I enjoy going to those to learn about the different heritages of my friends and neighbors.I am beginning to be annoyed, however, by all the"Cinco de mayos,Juneteenth days,etc...Especially when these celebrations are on the wake of National walk out of work day histronics.In addition,people are not neccessarily welcome if they are not of that particular heritage.My granparents came here from another country, and while they kept their heritage alive, they also lived as Americans,embracing all the country offered.It was not their right, it was their privelege.

                                                            "'Til There Was Ewe."
