Kev’s Daily Take On 10/18/2022

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…

PHARMACY TECHNICIAN DAY thanks those people who work in an always evolving, complex atmosphere while taking care of their customers.  Dealing with insurance companies, doctors and the public (which is sometimes not very patient) calls for quite the character.  Thank you for what you do.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

NATIONAL SPEAK UP FOR VICITMS OF SEXUAL ABUSE DAY addresses the silence that often accompanies this heinous crime.  All too often, these cases go by without anything being said.  If you have been abused, it is not your fault, and the perpetrator needs to be held accountable for their actions.  I also know that is easier said than done.  Call 800-656-HOPE (4673) and you will be connected with a local RAINN (Rape Abuse and Incest National Network) organization that is close by or go to

Today’s Fashion Trends

INTERNATIONAL LEGGING DAY comes just in time for the colder months.  Fun, colorful, functional and stylish, these leg warmers will make you look good and keep the chill out.

NATIONAL NECKTIE DAY wants us to dress up a bit.  This accessory can definitely put a little class in the act. Of course, if all you wear are t-shirts, it may look a little silly.

For Fun

NATIONAL NO BEARD DAY is for those who like the close shave and smooth skin.  If that’s your thing, celebrate it – not shaving mine – nope – uh-uh.

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL MASHED POTATO DAY better come with gravy – just sayin’.

Our dessert of the day just pops right into your mouth.  CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE DAY brings the smooth taste of chocolate in a couple of bites.  Bake up a batch and share them with your special people.

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Heavenly Father, please care for those who have suffered abuse at the hands of others.  This should never happen, but it does.  Let these survivors know that it’s ok to speak up, to stand up and to make their voice heard.  Let them know they matter and that they are loved.  I ask this in your name, Jesus, Amen.
