It’s Cinco de Mayo — Time for some tacos and beer!

While it is generally not celebrated in Mexico, Cinco de Mayo has become an observance of Mexican culture and heritage in the United States.

In Indiana, a boundary survey must also address the UNCERTAINTY in the availability and CONDITION of reference monuments (865 IAC 1-12-12-a-1). In the situation of a found, bent rebar, I could estimate a possible error of 0.15′ due to its disturbed condition.
