cwm27.gif ¡Cinco de Mayo!

Hmmm, I don't know about the rest of you, but I am going to celebrate my 64th birthday with a glass of Dom Perignon and a plate of fajitas con cabrito... with a dash of Choulula -HornED

PS: Choulula is a Mexican hot cwm23.gif sauce from the State of Puebla where the battle for Mexican Independence from the French was fought.

Congrats on the B-Day, the meal sounds great. It's odd that there is another hot sauce named Cholula made in the State of Jalisco; it's the one with the wooden top I'm sure most people have seen. Not very hot, but has a wonderful taste. I'm not familiar with these quizes, so what are we supposed to do? I know what Cinco de Mayo is but don't have a clue on the first one.

The "quiz" is really supposed to be rhetorical humor. After the French Revolution the French motto is "Liberty, Fraternity and Equality." Napoleon Bonaparte placed a French relative on the Mexican throne (Emperor Maxamillian) who was soundly defeated by a popular revolt in the Battle of Puebla.

The French question means, "What followed Liberty, Fraternity and Equality South of the Border?

The Spanish answer reads,"The Fifth of May"... which is looked upon as Independence Day by many people with a Mexican Heritage. In essence, the Mexican people did not find that they had the benefits of the imported liberty, fraternity, and equality and so they followed it with revolt.

Since I lived for years in France and have traveled to Mexico many times over the years... I have an affection for both countries.

As for the Hot Sauce issue, Cholula Hot Sauce is the popular commercial brand made in the State of Jalisco. Choulula (with an extra "u") is the name of a town in the State of Puebla where I discovered a truly delightful (and hotter) hot sauce... without a wooden top... but is a terrific incentive to quaff the local brew!

Thanks for the good wishes... I guess I will accept the event rather than the alternative. -HornED
