Kev’s Daily Take On 10/23/2022


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…

NATIONAL PARALEGAL DAY thanks the myriad of workers who work behind the scenes at the law offices and courts.  These people take care of the mountains of paperwork, conduct valuable research and will probably get you a cup of coffee if you ask nicely.  Thank you for what you do.

T.V. TALK SHOW HOST DAY just happens to fall on the birthday of Johnny Carson.  Today, we give these guys and gals with the gift of gab a round of applause for keeping us entertained.

Family and Friends

MOTHER-IN-LAW’S DAY pays tribute to the amazing ladies who welcome their extended families with open arms.  My mother-in-law has always made me to feel like I’m part of the family and she is quite the extraordinary woman.

Education and Information

NATIONAL MOLE DAY is all about chemistry and not the little animal that tears up your yard.  Italian scientist Amedeo Avogadro figured there is a constant number of particles in one mole of a substance – 6.02 x10^23 to be exact.  So, at 6:02 on 10/23, thank Amedeo for coming up with that.

Today’s Fashion Trends

NATIONAL CROC DAY wants to make your feet happy.  A lot of people swear by these comfy shoes, and you can get them in almost any color you want.

For Fun


On Today’s Menu…

 Our dessert of the day looks like a cake but is known as BOSTON CRÈME PIE DAY.  This custard filled yellow cake with chocolate frosting has enough sweetness to make your cavities sing – but, oh – what a song!

 Thank you, Most High God, for family.  Thank you for those who graciously accept others into theirs and love them as if they were their own. Bless all who are given the role of mother-in-law and who pass on their love and wisdom to the family.  In the precious name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
