Kev’s Daily Take On 10/21/2022

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.

Awareness Spotlight shines on…

NATIONAL MAMMOGRAPHY DAY lets us know that early detection is the best defense against breast cancer.  Ladies, please keep your yearly screenings up to date. 

NATIONAL CHECK YOUR MEDS DAY wants us to check our medicine cabinets to make sure we know what we are taking and to throw out anything expired.  If you are not sure what your doc has prescribed – find out why and what it does.

Our Not So Furry Friends

REPTILE AWARENESS DAY slithers and crawls its way onto our paths.  I guarantee that if you come across a snake or a lizard, you will be aware of it.

Today’s Beauty and Fashion Trends

NATIONAL WITCH HAZEL DAY celebrates this plant whose extract we have been using for centuries to take care of our skin.  It is an astringent that cleanses the skin and does not leave it oily.  It tightens, tones, cleanses and just makes your skin feel better.

For Fun

BACK TO THE FUTURE DAY celebrates the day that Marty McFly, Doc Brown and Marty’s girlfriend – Jennifer – fly to the futuristic date of 10/21/2015 to save their children.  Ironically, the movie had the Cubbies winning the World Series that year – something the writers never thought would happen.  The Cubs did win the Series in real life – a year later – 2016.

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL APPLE DAY comes at the right time of year.  You can go “apple knocking” at one of our favorite orchards around here and pick your own.  Celebrate this healthy, crispy, tasty fruit in your favorite style.  I am thinking baked in a pie and topped with vanilla ice cream.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF THE NACHO piles on the cheese and toppings over crunchy nacho chips.  You gotta go for that perfect serving with a single chip carrying a little of every topping.

PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE DAY is our dessert of the day and boy, does it sound scrumptious.

Dearest Heavenly Father, we thank you for your love, mercy and grace.  We would also pray for a cure to breast cancer.  Please comfort those who have suffered from this disease and heal those who are battling it.  Wrap your loving arms around them.  I ask this in your name, Jesus, Amen.

  1. I found it surprising that French women didn’t have the right to vote until 1945. I imagine two world wars and the Great Depression slowed this from happening any quicker.

  2. You are probably right about that, though I can’t help but wonder how many of the men’s votes were influenced by their women.


    1. Kev, your thoughts are probably very accurate.
