Kev’s Daily Take On 10/22/2022

 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…

USA Weekend and Points of Light sponsor MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY.  This day is all about community service and how you can pitch in and help.

Our Furry Friends

MAKE A DOG’S DAY is brought to you by your friendly neighborhood Subaru car dealer.  They want to remind us that you will certainly make a dog’s day by adopting instead of buying a new one.  Or make your own dog’s day with an extra treat and belly rub.

For Fun

NATIONAL COLOR DAY is just about that – color.  What would this world be like without the blue skies, green grass, and the changing colors that happen this time of year?

INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY reminds us to use our inside voices.  Sometimes, using all caps might be necessary to get a point across – but nobody likes a loud voice all of the time. 

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL NUT DAY wants you to enjoy your favorite legume – peanut, cashew, macadamia, walnut, pistachio…you get the idea.

 Happy Birthday to…
Franz Lizst (1811-1866)
Brilliant pianist and composer

Curly Howard (1903-1952)
This “stooge” was not just hilarious, but it is estimated that he saved and rehomed over 5,000 dogs in his lifetime

Timothy Leary (1920-1996)
Professor, psychologist and author who wanted everyone to see the world through a psychedelic haze

Christopher Lloyd (1938- )
From Reverend Jim on Taxi to Doc Brown in the Back to the Future Franchise – this man is quite the character
Annette Funicello (1942-2013)
From Mouseketeer to hanging out at the beach, she sang and acted her way into our hearts

Catherine Deneuve (1943- )
This talented actress has been gracing the screen since the late 1950’s with her most memorable roles being in The April Fools (1969) and The Hustle (1975)
Jeff Goldblum (1952- )
This guy brings his unique style and outlook to every role he plays.  From The Fly to Independence Day to Jurassic Park – he is instantly recognizable

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Dear Heavenly Father, please continue to bring this virus to its knees and heal all of those affected by it.  Thank you for your love and watch over all of these wonderful people.  In your name I pray, Jesus, Amen.
