Kev’s Daily Take On 10/30/2022

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 PUBLICIST DAY celebrates the people who literally make it their job to make us look good.  Public Relations in this day and age can be tricky with social media, and a good publicist can do wonders for your business and image.  Thank you for what you do.

Family and Friends


VISIT A CEMETARY DAY just wants us to keep our dearly departed in mind and honor them with a visit.  If it has been a while since you have gone, today could be a good day to pay your respects again.

CREATE A GREAT FUNERAL DAY is all about planning and preparation.  Don’t wait until it is too late to let your family and friends know your final resting place wishes.  Draw up the wills and get everything laid out before hand – so to speak.  In the course of planning my parents’ wake – we found it was cheaper to send a loved one’s ashes into space than it was to bury them in a coffin.  So, when it comes to your final send off – let everyone know how you want to go.

Our Furry Friends

Mental Floss

NATIONAL TREAT YOUR PET DAY gives our furry family members yet another treat.  With all of these pet holidays lately – our furry and feathered family members are gonna get fat

Education and Information


SPEAK UP FOR SERVICE DAY recognizes the contributions that youth have made toward the community.  Sponsored by the Lions Clubs, youth get a platform from which to verbalize how they can positively impact their communities as well as getting recognized for doing so.

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL CANDY CORN DAY falls into that category of – either you love it, or you hate it.  To me, it just isn’t Fall without a little bit of this sweet treat lying around. I have recently seen various recipes trying to incorporate candy corn into their mix – my unsolicited advice – leave it alone – enjoy it as it is – that’s how nature intended it.
