Kev’s Daily Take On 09/20/2022

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

Keeping with the tech theme, NATIONAL CRIME AND INTELLIGENCE ANALYST APPRECIATION DAY salutes those men and women who sift through reports, documents, social media, and any other information they have to spot trends in crime to help the police, inform the citizens and find out what’s happening in our communities.

CARE FOR KIDS’ DAY encourages us to lend our love and support to those pre-adult people.  If you are not a parent or your kids are grown, you can always volunteer and be a positive influence in young people’s lives.

VOTER REGISTRATION DAY urges everyone to get to the polls and vote.  It is your choice, and it is a powerful one.

Welcome to Kev’s Diner.  Have a seat, our waitress will be with you in a moment.  Our specials today include that all time classic PEPPERONI PIZZA DAY as well as that long time staple – NATIONAL FRIED RICE DAY.  Pepperoni is that go to pizza ingredient for a lot of people and fried rice can be made up any way you like it.  NATIONAL QUESO DAY and NATIONAL STRING CHEESE DAY complement our main courses rather nicely. One’s a cheese you dip into, the other is a cheese you gotta pull apart before you eat it.  NATIONAL PUNCH DAY will be served up with your favorite flavors and carbonation to help wash all of that wonderful food down.

On this day…
