Kev’s Daily Take On 10/19/2022

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.

A Tip of the Hat Goes to…

MEDICAL ASSISTANTS’ RECOGNITION DAY celebrates the men and women who assist the medical staff through clinical and administrative duties.  They definitely keep things running like a Swiss Clock.  Thank you for doing what you do.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

NATIONAL BRA DAY wants women to be aware of their options. Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day let’s those who have had a mastectomy or lumpectomy know that they have a choice when it comes to their appearance.

DAY OF UNITY seeks to bring all of us together to stop the bullying.  One person may not be able to defeat a bully, but by standing together – we can get a clear message across – it’s not cool.

Family and Friends

NATIONAL NEW FRIENDS DAY is always nearby.  Making new friends is not easy but can be very rewarding.

Education and Information

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CHAMBER OF COMMERCE DAY and they will support the local businesses.  This organization provides valuable resources for small businesses.

HAGFISH DAY celebrates the ugly side of the animal world.  They are considered the ugliest of species but serve the purpose of keeping our ocean floors clean as they scavenge the debris of dead marine animals.  They also produce a slime for protection that is stronger than nylon. The Navy is currently researching a synthetic version of this slime to be used as a protective layer for their vessels.

On Today’s Menu…

SEAFOOD BISQUE DAY brings the hot broth of strained lobster, shrimp or crab.  A nice hunk of bread accompanies this dish nicely, as does a glass of your favorite wine.
