San Diego Fire Update

As we hope that the Fire Department will be able to soon have all of the fires in San Diego 100 % contained,
 we are glad to report that there are no
 fires close to the downtown area. 

San Diego is also very appreciative over all the assistance
 that has arrived from other parts of our beautiful state.
 Firefighters from throughout the Bay Area are here to assist, as well as San Bernadino County firefighters just to mention a few. Thank YOU all for your service!

 Happy Cinco De Mayo

First things first, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day but a Mexican Holiday celebrating the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862. In 1861, France sent a massive army to invade Mexico, as they wanted to collect on some war debts. The French army was much larger, better trained and equipped than the Mexicans struggling to defend the road to Mexico City. It rolled through Mexico until it reached Puebla, where the Mexicans made a valiant stand, and, against all logic, won a huge victory. It was short-lived, as the French army regrouped and continued; eventually taking Mexico City, but the euphoria of an unlikely victory against overwhelming odds is remembered every May fifth.
