Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Food project results

Not such a great turnout, alas …

All right, so the turnout for the invitation to write about cuisine was less than spectacular. We had a total of four entries, by three contributors.

First, we had Tillerman with his entry answering New Mexico’s Official State Question: “Red or Green?”

Next, O Docker popped up with “A Kernel of Truth,” technically past the deadline, but close enough.

So then, I extended the project deadline in hopes of getting more entries. Captain JP came in with two, both having to do with coffee: “My favourite drink” and “Alas poor cafetiere.”

Thanks to the three who entered. But, dear readers, you may not have heard the last of this topic. Some of my students wrote great essays, and I plan to invite them to submit their work as guest posts. We’ll see what cooks up.

Some of us would rather drink than eat....

Now that the term is over and grades are safely entered into the college computer system so there's no conflict of interest, I've invited four students to share their essays. I hope they all say yes -- they wrote some really good stuff.

So far, one has said yes. He did a review of his favorite restaurant. OK, so it's a little hard to get from here to there (Google Maps says to use a kayak for one leg of the journey). But it sounds like a great place to eat.

Don't give up on this idea! One of these days, I hope to contribute to one of your assignments!
