GOOD WEDNESDAY MORNING GUYS AND DOLLS,
Hope you all had a pleasant evening and here is a little knowledge from Joey Z, that I would like to share with you Speakies today, March 6.
ALAMO DAY - On this day March 6, 1836, the Texian defenders of the Alamo were defeated by the Mexican Army led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana. The Alamo Mission was located near San Antonio de Bexar. The Alamo's defenders consisted of 13 native born Texians, 11 from Mexican descent, 41 born in Europe, 2 Jews, 2 Blacks and the remainder were Americans from different states.
FROZEN FOOD DAY -Whether you prefer ice cream, the good old TV dinners, pizza or other frozen specialties today is Frozen Food Day. It was proclaimed March 6, 1984, by President Ronald Reagan. The Father of Frozen Foods, Clarence Birdseye, found a way to flash-freeze foods and we have been serving them up since then.
NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHEESE CAKE DAY - I haven't eaten a good piece of cheese cake in a long time. I usually pass on desserts at restaurants but this one sounds tempting. One of our local grocery stores serves a variety of cheese cakes that are decent. Order yourselves a slice today and enjoy.
I have to say "Happy Birthday" to the Oreo Cookie, first appearing in 1912. Don't try to fool me I know you Guys and Dolls dipped those cookies in milk and some still do it now. I like to dip cookies in a hot cup of coffee makes them so soft especially the chocolate filled kind. Now for some other birthdays we honor today.
1785 - Karol Kazimierz Kurpinski - He was one of the most revered composers before Frederic Chopin and helped to lay down the foundations of a national style for the Polish music of the Romantic Period. He also contributed to the development of Polish opera. He died in Warsaw at the age of 72. I always have to honor the Polish you understand.
1906 - Lou Costello - Part of the comedy team of Abbott and Costello, stars both of TV and the Silver Screen. "HEY ABBOTT."
1923 - Ed McMahon - Host of the Johnny Carson Show. "HERE'SSSSSSS JOHNNY."
Have a wonderful Guys and Dolls and be careful out there.
