Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de MayoIn case you haven’t heard, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day.  In order to explain Cinco de Mayo, I have to give you a short lesson in Mexican history.  Late in 1861, Napoleon III of France sent a fleet to Veracruz, on the coast of Mexico.  The French army stormed Veracruz and then started moving towards Mexico City.  At Puebla, the well-trained, well-equipped, 8,000-man French army attacked the Mexican army of 4,000.  Some of the Mexican soldiers were well-trained and well-equipped, but legend says many of them were just peasants with farming tools.  On May 5, 1862 [exactly 150 years ago!], the Mexicans decisively crushed the French army, which was considered the best in the world at the time.

The Digital Media Catalog

Digital MediaThere used to be a large box near the top center of our home page that said “Digital Media Catalog.”  You used to click that box to get to our ebooks and downloadable audio.  Then “they” redesigned the web page.  Fear not; it’s still easy to get there.  You just click this icon now.  It’s on the right, about 2½” down.
