Kev’s Daily Take On 09/19/2022


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.

Ye Olde Events and Celebrations

AORTIC DISSECTION AWARENESS DAY shines a spotlight on a rare condition.  The inner lining of the aorta can tear and leak blood.  If it is caught in time, it can be repaired, otherwise it can be fatal.  Symptoms include chest, upper back or stomach pain, loss of consciousness, leg pain or shortness of breath.  These are much like the conditions of heart disease and if you experience these, seek medical help.

Well, shiver me timbers, that’s right me hearties, it be TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY.  Heave to, swab that deck and hoist that mainsail.  We be settin’ off to find some gold booty.  Careful, ye might just find yourself talkin’ like a scalawag and not even realizing it.  Make sure not to walk the plank or end up in Davy Jones’ locker because dead men tell no tales.

Our dessert of the day is a creamy delight – BUTTERSCOTCH PUDDING DAY.  Ye olde recipe calls for 1 pound of butter, 1 pound of sugar and a quarter pound of molasses, but there are plenty of ways to make this.  If you want to go rogue, like a pirate, you can always spike it with a little rum.
