    El Toro de Don Jose for the Best Mexican Meal Around

     

    El Toro de Don Jose Mexican Restaurant in Clarksville TNClarksville, TN – El Toro de Don Jose at 1200 Fort Campbell Boulevard has the best Mexican food I’ve ever eaten. Picture taco shells that are so thin, so crisp, so light that they wrap perfectly around a hefty portion of meat, cheese, and lettuce. Add some sour cream, beans and rice and you have a perfect meal.

    One person I know actually ate there eight times in one week at El Toro. Why? Because everything he tried was perfection. According to this faithful customer, the fajitas are great–either steak, chicken or shrimp. He says they are the best in Tennessee and he’s eaten Mexican food from Memphis to Knoxville and no one else can touch them.

    Cursive Writing: Thing of the Past or Necessity?

     

    EducationClarksville, TN – In 2014, the Tennessee Legislature passed a law that cursive writing had to be taught in public schools. The sequence of events leading up to this and the political influences that had caused cursive writing to be almost a lost art reveal the trends not only in education but in society itself.

    Cursive writing is also called longhand, script, handwriting, looped writing, joined-up writing, joint writing, or running writing. This style of penmanship handwriting where letters or symbols are conjoined in a flowing manner. The original purpose of this type of writing was to make the process faster.
