Kev’s Daily Take On 09/05/2022


I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Events and Celebrations

 LABOR DAY brings an end to summer, a start to school and one last big hurrah before the colorful days of fall get here.  Get that grill sizzling or your picnic basket made up.  We have the unions to thank for our workplace conditions today, as well as anyone who is working or has worked.  Enjoy the spoils of your labor today and celebrate life.

We give a tip of the hat to NATIONAL SHRINK DAY.  These caring people set out to heal the mind and take care of our mental states.  We thank you for your dedication and commitment to healing.

NATIONAL BE LATE FOR SOMETHING DAY encourages a little misbehavior on our part.  Take the long way into work and appreciate the journey.  Be fashionably late for a date and make a grand entrance.  Allow this day to take a little stress off our time challenging schedules – we will be back on track tomorrow.

NATIONAL CHEESE PIZZA DAY takes us back to the basics.  With just crust, sauce and cheese, the taste is simple but delicious.  Enjoy a slice or two today.

On this day…

1774 – The first Continental Congress convenes

1836 – Sam Houston is elected as the President of the Republic of Texas

1882 – Over 10,000 workers march down the streets of New York in the first Labor Day parade.  This event led to the declaration of an official Labor Day

Happy Birthday to…

Jesse James (1857-1882)
Famous People

History still cannot decide if he was a hero or an outlaw – either way, he did rob and kill people

Arthur Nielsen (1897-1980)

Founded the Nielsen Company to find out what we watch and listen to

Bob Newhart (1929- )

The king of deadpan humor, you could say he talks softly but carries a big joke

Raquel Welch (1940- )

She was first cast for her looks but ended up starring in more prominent roles, winning a Golden Globe and is partly credited with ending Hollywood’s “Blonde Bombshell” era

Freddy Mercury (1946-1991)
Entertainment Tonight

He was the flamboyant front man for “Queen”

Cathy Guisewite (1950- )

U of M grad who gave us the comic strip “Cathy”

Michael Keaton (1951- )

From starting on Mister Rogers Neighborhood, to playing Batman, to portraying a drug addicted doctor in “Dopesick” – he has proven he can be more than just a funnyman

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Dearest LORD, we give thanks for the jobs we have.  Jobs that put food on our table, jobs that keeps us clothed and provide roofs over our heads.  Thank you for the men and women who labor across this country and work to keep it going.  In your name I pray, Jesus, Amen.
