They’re our neighbor to the south. We share the second largest border between two countries. We enjoy their food and celebrate their culture every year on May 5. But, what do we really know about the officially named United Mexican States?
It’s May and that means that soon we’ll be celebrating our Mexican heritage, much like we all celebrate our Irish heritage in March…even when we have neither. Cinco de Mayo is a great excuse to leave work early, eat tortilla chips and drink more tequila than sanity allows, but is it starting to feel just a little bit like the same old thing?
With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, we have Mexico on the brain. Perhaps this year, instead of celebrating the day with watered-down margaritas at your local Tex-Mex chain restaurant, you should start planning that trip to Mexico you’ve always talked about taking.
Fear not, fast food aficionados — if you’re headed to London for the 2012 Olympics, you won’t have to force yourself to choke down any of bangers and mash. Instead, you’ll have a chance to eat at the world’s biggest McDonald’s. But get in line soon, because the 1,500 seat restaurant will only be open for six weeks.
Music can have a profound effect on all of us. It triggers memories, elevates our mood, makes us angry and helps us learn. It can also bring us out from the dark shell of a weakened and aging mind. That’s certainly the effect music has had for this man who suffers from dementia brought on by age.
You might not know his name, but you definitely know his work. Thomas Kinkade painted quaint scenes of cottages, cobblestone paths and warm, glowing windows, seemingly lit as an invitation to come inside. He had mass appeal that made him a household name and the target of disapproval from art critics. Kinkade passed away unexpectedly on Friday at the age of 54.
Somewhere along the way, an egg-toting, gift-giving rabbit became associated with the Easter holiday. We assume that soon after, sadistic parents decided that it would be fun to make sure any likeness of this generous rabbit should be creepy and frightening so they can take pictures and video of their children being completely freaked out.
Not many of us escaped lottery fever last week as the Mega Millions jackpot skyrocketed to about $640 million. Everyone wanted to get in on the action and we know one firefighter who is very happy his fellow firefighters decided to try their luck.
Traditionally, the first day of April is a perfect time to get your kicks by playing jokes and setting up pranks for your friends, family and coworkers. Some people like to prepare for this day by pulling pranks all year long for practice. Thank goodness we now have YouTube so jokesters can record these pranks and the reactions they cause and then post them for our enjoyment.
