El Taco H and my call to… Register to Vote!!!! Let Your Voice Be Heard!!!!!!!

Alright now!  I get it.  If I need to enter with an incline, I must begin on the Speedy’s Convenience and Spirit Shop end of the sidewalk.  Conveniently, not a problem.  I will typically take the challenge of climbing the curb but…the accessible side of the walkway is there for us and “MUY GOOD” awaits.

Slowly my hungry self approaches another St. Joe mecca of tasty treats!


But before we enjoy the delights of El Taco H, in an election year that has made many of us want to pull the sheets over our heads and ignore, our votes cannot be more important.  We have heard and watched the unspeakable but unless we use our opportunity to vote we risk alienating perhaps ourselves and many other fellow Americans.  If you are reading this now you have the capability to register to vote online.  Do it now and insure your voice is counted, whomever your chosen candidate is.  Make your choice known…

Cardenas opened El Taco H, it was more than convenience that Speedy’s provided.  If you ordered a cup of coffee one of the family ran next door to Speedy’s to bring  you, fresh, hot coffee.  Not having a coffee pot did not stop the day to day business of making  great, authentic, south Texas, Mexican food.  A grateful patron soon bought El Taco H a commercial coffee pot and the business continued to thrive.

Eat in or carry out but know there will be a long line if you arrive too late on a Saturday morning.

Now, if you have not registered to vote in your state do it… NOW!  Check online to discover your state’s filing deadline.  Check your voter registration deadlines at http://www.rockthevote.com.  Be sure your opinion is counted.

Let’s elect a leader that helps us remember that, “We have the ability to achieve, if we master the necessary goodwill, a common global society blessed with a shared culture of peace that is nourished by the ethnic, national and local diversities that enrich our lives.”  Mahnaz Afkhami (Iranian-American Human rights activist).
