On this day in history: March 6, 1836 - Alamo seized by Santa Ana, 3,000 versus 147 not being a fair fight. The holdouts suffered unnecessary deaths, disobeying direct orders by remaining, and losing their arms and cannon to the Mexicans.

Born on this day in history: March 6, 1475 - Michelangelo (1475 - 1564) painter, sculptor, architect, poet. He led the High Renaissance with monumental style, e.g., "David," 1504 and "Paintings of Sistine Chapel," 1508-12.

Thank you, Father, for this glorious day you have given us! The sun is shining brightly, the sky is blue, the clouds are scattered and fluffy, and the birds are singing! It was 63 degrees in my office when I arrived at 7:30 AM! For the first time in several months, there was no need for a jacket this morning!

It has been six weeks since we have eaten carbohydrates. We have been following the South Beach Diet. Last evening, we made garlic mashed sweet potatoes (the potato highly favored by the South Beach Diet). They were wonderful! They were a perfect companion to the sautéed catfish fillets.
