    Gov is improving education
    My name is Sarah Vasquez. I live up in the beautiful mountains of Chacon, N.M., with my husband, Ruben. He is retired, and is now enjoying those choices that we all look forward to one day be able to make in our daily lives.
    I, on the other hand, still work and drive approximately 54 miles each way to and from my job in another beautiful spot in our state, Angel Fire. I work in Property Management in a great place, Angel Fire Resort. I have been there since 2000.

    Glad you asked. The custom is supposed to be that the omelet you order at a French cafe will contain only one egg, not two, or even three, as is common in some American restaurants.

    The French serve one-egg omelets because in France, “one egg is an ‘oeuf.’” Now does that sound enough like “enough” to explain why diners go hungry?
