Kev’s Daily Take On 10/09/2022

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

Our awareness spotlight shines on PANS/PANDAS AWARENESS DAY.  Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndromes and Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders can beset our little ones after a bout with strep.  Tics, behavioral changes and depression are some of the symptoms, but the good news is that these conditions can be treated with anti-biotics and other medicines.

We give a tip of the hat to CLERGY APPRECIATION DAY and all of the priests, ministers, chaplains and others who look after our spiritual needs.  Thank you for your caring and commitment.

PRO-LIFE CUPCAKE DAY was created by Cupcakes for Life to get us talking about a sensitive subject using these tasty treats.  Everyone has an opinion on this subject and keeping communication lines open is always a good thing.

LEIF ERIKSON DAY celebrates the life of this bold adventurer who brought the first Nordic people to North America.  While trying to sail to Greenland, their ship got blown off course and ended up in eastern Canada.

MOLDY CHEESE DAY is for those discriminating connoisseurs (ok, what is with the French and their vowels) of cheese.  Bleu, camembert, and gorgonzola are just some of the flavors to sample today.
