Kev’s Daily Take On 10/12/2022

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.

A Tip of the Hat Goes to…

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

STOP BULLYING DAY to stand up for those who get pushed around.  There will always be those who think they can get what they want through intimidation.  Standing up to them is not easy, but if we all do it and show them that we won’t stand for it – it may give them a change of heart.

WORLD ARTHRITIS DAY – may the research and education continue to ease the pain of those who suffer from this condition

Family Matters

Celebrate You with…

NATIONAL CURVES DAY – no matter your shape – you are a beautiful person and don’t let anyone make you feel any different.

FREETHOUGHT DAY encourages us to think outside the box and break away from the herd mentality.  It’s ok to do that – how else will we continue to progress?

NATIONAL SAVINGS DAY is there for a rainy day and so much more.  Having that savings account around provides some financial security as well as a little peace of mind – with interest

NATIONAL BRING YOUR TEDDY BEAR TO WORK/SCHOOL DAY – it’s ok if you want a little extra security with you today

INTERNATIONAL SPINNING TOP DAY puts a playful spin on this day with this simple but fascinating toy

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL GUMBO DAY will stick to your ribs and give you the warm and fuzzies as it heats up your insides.  Okra and a nice dark roux are the secrets to this tantalizing dish.

NATIONAL PULLED PORK DAY is a savory plate that is served up best with some BBQ sauce.  You don’t have to add the sauce – but then, it’s just stringy pork.
