Kev’s Daily Take On 11/06/2022

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…

Education and Information

DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ENDS so make sure and set your clocks back an hour.  I am all for a productive day, but I am still not sure how changing the time is supposed to help with that.

For Fun

SAXOPHONE DAY just happens to fall on the birthday of Adolphe Sax – the guy who invented it.  His patent actually covered 14 versions of this instrument ranging from soprano to contrabass.  The patent was good for 15 years and after that, others made their own modifications to this brassy woodwind.

On Today’s Menu…

NATIONAL NACHO DAY brings the chips and all of the toppings to heap on them.  The year was 1981, the place – Rumas Deli in South County Mall. I walked over on my break to get a sandwich and saw something called Nachos on the menu.  It turned out to be just chips and cheese sauce, but it may have changed my life forever.

Sneak Peek at Tomorrow’s Events and Celebrations

Color the World Orange Day – Wear orange to bring awareness to Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)

Job Action Day

Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day

Notary Public Day

 Canine Lymphoma Awareness Day

On this day…

1869 – Rutgers beats Princeton in the first college football game – well – I am typing this on Friday, and I know that Rutgers will lose to Michigan on Saturday – Go Blue!

1894 – William C. Hooker invents the spring-loaded mouse trap

1923 – Colonel Jacob Schick receives a patent for the electric razor

1947 – Meet the Press debuts on NBC

1962 – The UN condemns apartheid in South Africa

1995 – The Cleveland Browns move to Baltimore and become the Baltimore Ravens.  The people of Cleveland weren’t happy and as a football fan in a city that saw 2 teams move out, I can sympathize.  It is a happy ending though, as Cleveland was awarded an expansion team and got football and the name “Browns” back.

2018 – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez becomes the youngest person to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives at 29

Happy Birthday to…
Antoine Joseph Sax (1814-1894)
Gave us the saxophone

World Finance
Charles Henry Dow (1851-1902)
He is the Dow in Dow Jones and Company
John Philip Sousa (1854-1932)
This marine not only knew how to march but also how to compose them – 136 to be exact and he recorded more than 400

Famous People
James Naismith (1861-1939)
This gym teacher took a soccer ball and two peach baskets and gave us the sport of basketball
Sally Field (1946- )
Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes all adorn the mantel of this special lady who can be seen in everything from Gidget to The Flying Nun, to Smokey and the Bandit to Steel Magnolias to Forrest Gump

The Nation
Pat Tillman (1974-2004)
This safety for the Arizona Cardinals put his successful football career on hold to enlist in the military after 9/11.  He carried over his service of excellence from the gridiron to the battlefield and was part of the Army Rangers and served several combat tours. In 2004, he was killed in the line of duty.  RIP Corporal Tillman. 

Emma stone (1988- )
From La La Land to Spiderman – it’s easy to see why this actress is Oscar worthy

Enjoy the day and make it your own

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray for a week of blessings for myself and all of these beautiful people.  May sickness stay away and may you form a hedge of protection around my friends and family.  Thank you for everything, God.  In Jesus’s name I pray, Amen.
